It offers a high standard of comfort and facilities and will make an ideal base for visitors looking to enjoy some social time. In the loch side village of Carrick Castle, Whisperwood is a detached holiday home with partial loch views. Steps away from the shore of Loch Goil and close to the start of a number of walking trails on the Carrick Castle Estate. Head off on the 1 hour circular walk, or plan a longer trek following the routes up to the mountain scenery which is the backdrop to this fjord type loch. The village is within the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park. Your first trip to Carrick Castle via a single track road from the Rest-and-be-Thankful will be a memorable one. The village feels, if not a million miles away from the central belt, certainly this is somewhere that you have to make the effort to come to, and it is all the more special for it. Carrick Castle is a place to enjoy picture postcard scenery. At the head of the loch is the village of Lochgoilhead. There you will find an impressive leisure centre, a Costcutter store, places to eat and the local pub at the Goil Inn. Ground floor Entry to the porch and hall. Off the hall is the sitting room and open plan kitchen. Lounge seating for 7, plus extra dining chairs available for larger parties to enjoy social time together. The adjacent conservatory is heated and makes for a great dining area. Fully equipped kitchen including a full sized fridge and freezer and washing machine/dryer. There is a Cloakroom WC on this level.

Be sure to bring your binoculars as there is excellent bird watching, and look out for Eagles. The views from these hill walks are of the impressive mountains as well as down over the fjord type Loch Goil to where it meets Loch Long. If you are a walker you will be spoilt for choice. You can pre-order a copy of the Local Walking Guide. With little traffic in the village it is also pleasant to take the shore road through the village and then on to the path over the hill to Ardentinny. Depending on the time of year the gannets put on a marvellous display diving for fish, and you can look out for seals and porpoises which are regular visitors. For fishing you can hire a boat from Loch Goil Cruisers or fish from the shore. Loch Goil Trails - FREE Local Walking Guide When you book to come and stay we include a FREE copy of the Loch Goil Trials Guidebook in your holiday home. Lochgoilhead is a sensational walking area.

Easy to muscle-crunching, as well as the popular dog walks, there is something here for everyone.More
