Sherbrooke is a substantial Victorian house built in 1876 for a wealthy Glasgow merchant. It has a commanding position giving views over the Kyles of Bute. The grounds extend to approximately an acre which includes a sweeping driveway and a mature garden. The property is tastefully decorated throughout and has many typical period features such as panel doors, high ceilings with ornate cornicing, feature fireplaces and casement windows. To the rear of the property is a self-contained two-bedroom cottage.


Tighnabruaich, on Argyll’s Cowal peninsula, is a relaxing waterside village with a friendly and active community. The village has two hotels, a bistro and café, a small supermarket and an art gallery. Amenities include a Doctor’s surgery, a primary school and a post office. Secondary schooling (day and weekly boarding) is available at Dunoon Grammar. Local clubs and classes provide for a range of interests including art and crafts, coastal rowing, keep fit and amateur dramatics. There is a scenic and challenging 9-hole golf course.

The area is renowned for its natural beauty and is a popular destination for cyclists, sea kayakers and walkers. The Cowal Way, knows as “Scotland in 57 miles”, runs the length of the Cowal Peninsula, passing through the village. Wildlife enthusiasts can expect to see a wide variety of seabirds as well as seals, dolphins, basking sharks and even the occasional whale. Sea, river and loch fishing are also available in the area, as are several commercially run shoots. Some of the local estates allow stalking by arrangement.

Ever popular with the sailing fraternity, and home to a famous sailing school, Tighnabruaich is a sheltered anchorage with moorings that are lively with the comings and goings of motor launches and yachts. A highlight are the regular summer visits of the Waverley, the world’s last seagoing paddle steamer.

Closeby, on Loch Fyne, Portavadie Marina has many facilities available to local residents including a restaurant and a leisure centre with gym, swimming pool and heated outdoor spa pools with fabulous views across Loch Fyne. A short ferry trip across Loch Fyne from Portavadie is Tarbert, gateway to the beautiful Kintyre Peninsula and the islands of Islay (of whisky fame), Jura, Gigha and Arran.

From Colintraive (15 miles) a regular ferry crosses to the island of Bute. Both Rothesay (Bute’s main town) and Dunoon offer wider shopping facilities. Glasgow is only two hours away either by road via Loch Lomond, or via ferry from Dunoon, then car or train from Gourock. Late-evening ferry services on Fridays and Saturdays make it possible to take in the theatre or a show after a day’s shopping or visiting Glasgow’s galleries and other attractions.
