Old Argyll House, Scotland


Old Argyll House, a substantially equipped holiday home in Scotland for up to 18 guests, sits amid 2.5 acres of private gardens on Holy Loch in Trossachs National Park. The landscapes on the peninsula are stunning, starting with the property’s streams, waterfalls and tall trees planted by the Younger family who founded the nearby Benmore Botanic Gardens. This area is famed for its walks, and you can take several spectacular routes into the Forest Park straight from the house.

Nearby, you’ll find every outdoor activity you’d want, including fishing, riding, shooting, golf, sailing and cycling. We’ve provided fishing rods, bikes and golf club sets to get you started.

There’s also plenty to do on site, with lawn games like croquet, cricket, badminton and a trampoline. A midge machine keeps things pleasant as you play or barbecue. Inside, there’s a sauna, games room, snooker room and downstairs snug with TV, DVD and Sky.

Built in 1693, this classic Scottish holiday home has 8 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, so your large group will feel comfortable. Only 1.5 hours from Glasgow via the M8 and a ferry, the house is 10 minutes from Dunoon and 70 minutes from the Glasgow Airport.

The house consists of a four star quality standard throughout with 8 bedrooms (5 doubles, two twin or triples, one bunk room) and 3 bathrooms.

With a large sitting room with open fire, wood-panelled dining room with open fire, kitchen-breakfast room with Aga, downstairs snug with big TV, DVD and wood-burner, plus a games room and a separate snooker room, the living accommodation is flexible and comfortable enough to suit most types of parties.

The 2.5 acre garden, like the house, is unique. Originally built by the family of the Duke of Argyll in 1693, the house was owned in Victorian times by the Younger family, who founded the amazing Benmore Gardens a couple of miles away, which still contain the tallest trees in the UK. They also planted a huge variety here. With streams, waterfalls and a huge variety of plants, it’s simply a stunning garden.

There’s a croquet set, football goal, cricket and badminton sets, a 13 foot trampoline, barbecue and the all important “midge machine” in the garden. As well as the ¾ sized billiard table in its own room, there is a small games room downstairs with a dartboard plus a multifunction entertainment table with table football, air hockey, table tennis, mini-snooker etc. There is also the sauna to enjoy. In addition there is a great selection of games and jigsaws as well as a pretty decent library and over 100 CDs. The snug features a 32” widescreen TV with CD surround-sound, Sky Sports & Movies plus a variety of videos and DVDs.
