Situated just yards from Inveraray Pier, this beautiful detached cottage is perfect for couples looking for a self catering break to explore the popular conservation town of Inveraray. Tucked in the historical 'Ferry Land' area of the village, Smugglers' Cottage was the original Quay office and enjoys an enviable quiet position whilst still being in the heart of Inveraray. The cottage is thought to be one of the oldest buildings in the town, and its character shines through, with thick solid walls, deep window sills and sash windows.
The living space is open plan - ideal for socialising whilst you cook. There is a big dining table, suitable for family meals, playing board games/jigsaws, or for planning tomorrow's adventures! The kitchen is well-equipped, with a dishwasher; cooker/hob; microwave; fridge with freezer box; and a good selection of utensils and crockery.
The velvet sofas are perfect for sinking into after a day exploring the area, and there is a smart TV for evenings in/rainy days. WiFi is also provided to help you to stay in touch (if you want to!).
Upstairs, both bedrooms are fitted with white furniture. The twin room can be made up as a superking sized on request (please ask when booking). It also has a large chest of drawers and wardrobe, so plenty of space to store your belongings for longer stays. The double bedroom has a chest of drawers, and a hanging rail in the cupboard just outside the door.
The bathroom is fully tiled, and features a roll-top, claw-foot bath - perfect for a long soak after a day out. There is a separate shower cubicle, along with storage for your bits and bobs.
The cottage is located right in the town centre - but not beside the main road, so you can make the most of the peace and quiet! Noise will travel from The George's Garden Bar during their renowned live music events - allowing you to enjoy them from the comfort of the sofa, or nip round the corner and join in!
Just an hour and a half from Glasgow, this cottage is ideal for a self-catering break away from it all - without having to drive too far. Inveraray offers a whole host of great places to eat and drink, along with some of the best visitor attractions in the area. Take a trip to Inveraray Jail or Castle; lunch in Brambles; then walk up to Dun-na-Cuaiche - the tower that watches over the village; have dinner in The George, or join one of their events through the summer; then watch the sun set over Loch Fyne.
Sitting on Loch Fyne, Inveraray was built in the mid-1700s by the 3rd Duke of Argyll on the site of an earlier fishing village.
It is a popular, bustling village with lots of independently owned craft and gift shops, and a number of excellent places to eat and drink - all within a stone's throw of the cottage. The George and Brambles both serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, and are some of our favourite places to eat, along with Samphire and Ocho!
There is plenty to do without having to travel far - Inveraray Castle (owned and occupied by the Duke & Duchess of Argyll) and Inveraray Jail are within the town itself. Argyll Adventure (horse riding, paintball, archery, laser tag, etc) is situated in the outskirts of the town, and Auchindrain Museum is just a 6 miles south. There are many great walks in the local area too.
With a good central location, it is around an hour up to Oban (with ferries to the various islands of the Inner & Outer Hebrides) - and it is also well placed for exploring both Kintyre and the Cowal peninsula.
Parking for the cottage is on a lane around 20 yards from the cottage - it is first come/first served, but it is usually possible to get parked. There is also pay & display available just outside, or a free/unlimited car park around a 5 minute walk away.
