The cottage is an ideal base for exploring Loch Lomond, the Trossachs, the Western Highlands and the wonderful city of Glasgow, or for relaxing and enjoying the local weather and wildlife.

You can enjoy sitting on the patio watching eiderducks, oyster catchers, cormorants, swans and even the occasional seal. Warships, support vessels and submarines pass silently on their way to the naval base at Faslane. You might see the last ocean-going paddle steamer in the world, the Waverley, on one of its trips down the loch.
There is direct access to a shingle beach by steps the bottom of the large, child friendly garden. At high tide, there is no beach; the sea reaches the garden wall.

The sunsets over the Arrochar Alps are breathtaking and the sunrise down the Loch towards Rosneath can be spectacular if you rise early enough. Even in winter you can enjoys the views from your cosy retreat.
There is a half-hourly bus service to Helensburgh, which connects with the trains to Glasgow. In the opposite direction, the bus serves Garelochhead and Coulport. The service is less frequent in the evenings and on Sundays.

The cottage shares a secluded site of about half an acre with Inverallt. Parking is provided. The main road (A814) runs behind the property.
