“Home away from home”

Seacliffe sits right on the shores of Loch Fyne, on Scotlands West Coast. Nesting within the surrounding mountains, this Victorian Villa faces West to the superb sunsets, and magnificent views, of Argylls secret coast.

An hour and half drive from Glasgow, our house offers a peaceful time by the water. Step directly from the garden onto the pebbled edge of Loch Fyne, or look out from the cosy comfort of the front rooms to the stunning loch and its wild natural environment. You might spot a playful seal, stately heron or rare red squirrel!

Tardis like this self-catering home offers spacious comfort for 9-14 people. Gather within a well-equipped kitchen, around warming log fires, with lots of living spaces and cosy beds perfect for a luxury lochside stay.
