A place to find your soul. This delightful cosy cottage sits on Ardlamont point surrounded on three sides by sea. This is the jewel of Argyll’s Secret Coast. Romantically remote yet so close to the well known playgrounds of Tighnabruaich and Portavadie.

A piece of paradise awaits you here set in bucolic surroundings of green fields with sheep and birds for company. Awe inspiring views towards Arran’s mountains and close to one of Scotland’s best beaches. A place to escape to and just be.

Kames, Skócia, Egyesült Királyság

West Smithy Cottage feels romantically remote and yet is extremely handy for the following well known places so popular with walkers, sailors, cyclists and bon viviers in general:

1. Tighnabruaich & Kames:

Good pubs at Kames Hotel overlooking boats moored in the West Kyle and the North end of Bute and also the Shinty Bar at the Royal Hotel (aka An Lochan) in Tighnabruaich. Posher lounge bar in the Royal too.

Fine place to have a coffee and a cake at Time and Tide and very good food at the Kames Hotel too. Can also eat at the Royal.

Kames Village Store (run by the lovely Andy) is an extraordinarily well stocked emporium with lots of locally sourced produce and he also sells firewood and kindling. It’s the sort of place Mary Portas would rave about. There’s also a Spar (and ATM) in Tighnabruaich. Look out for locally produced food too - particularly good venison produced by a local man with the unlikely name of Winston Churchill is available in local shops.

There is a great little Art Gallery in Tighnabruaich and also a wonderful gallery/gift shop at nearby Carry Farm which is well worth a visit.

9 hole golf course at Kames. Set of clubs available if you wish to use. Please let me know in advance and I’ll arrange get them down from loft.

Shinty: this is hockey with added violence - similar to hurly in Ireland. Popular sport in the Highlands, local team, Kyles Athletic, play on pitch off road between Kames and Tighnabruaich. And then repair to the Shinty Bar.

Sailing at the Sailing Centre at Carry Farm, about a mile north on the Kames road - you can arrange a sailing session with them under their expert guidance.

If you fancy a trip aboard the world’s last remaining, ocean-going paddle steamer, the “SS Waverley”, it calls in at Tighnabruaich Pier every Wednesday from late June to late August at around lunchtime and goes on a short cruise to Tarbert (see later) on Loch Fyne, passing the cottage as it nears Ardlamont Point, and back returning at about 5 o’clock. Well worth a trip. See pictures for current timetable.

2. Portavadie Spa and Marina

Extraordinary redevelopment of a former white elephant 1970s oil rig construction yard. Now home to chi chi apartments, a great restaurant, a swimming pool and spa (complete with outdoor infinity pool overlooking Loch Fyne - quite possibly the only one on Loch Fyne), a marina and boatyard. Well worth a visit - very good Sunday lunch menu.

On the way, at the lovely village of Millhouse, there is Botanica which is extremely good although has suffered during lockdown. So if you visit, Michael, a master baker, would be very pleased to see you!

3. Beaches

Fantastic beach at Ostel Bay - it is about a mile's walk from Kilbride Farm on the Millhouse road. Nice wee pop-up café at the farm. Stonier beaches nearby at the end of the farm track within walking distance.

3. Further afield

Oystercatcher pub and restaurant at Otter Ferry is very good - about 10 miles north overlooking beach. Fine restaurant at Inver Cottage further on from Otter Ferry - never been but gets rave reviews. People travel miles to visit it - has rooms if you’ve overdone it.

Ferry from Portavadie takes you to Tarbert, a pretty fishing village on Kintyre peninsula. Great fishmonger on the jetty to take some seafood back to cook at the end of the day. One or two semi-decent pubs and nice restaurant called the Anchorage which was very good the last time I went, admittedly in 1995, and always a buzz around the place, in summer anyway.

Skipness Castle - there is the Seafood Cabin here. It is at the end of the road over from Tarbert. Cabin is some kind of tinker’s wagon parked in a garden with lots of picnic tables. It is gloriously chaotic: you will need to get used to hens clucking about at your feet as you munch away on your crab sandwich or mussels but the food is always good. And the sun always seems to shine. You can explore the castle after lunch and climb up to the vertiginous ramparts and enjoy yet more views over to Arran. But don’t look down!

Isle of Gigha - this would be a 4 ferry trip - Portavadie to Tarbert, then drive 20 miles to Tayinloan and get another ferry to lovely Gigha with its beaches (head for Twin Beaches to north of Island if you can), seafood café, hotel and gardens at Achamore. You can hire bikes there - it is very flat.

V. fine views to islands of Islay, famous for its whisky, and Jura and the Paps (mountains). Note last ferry is at 4:30 pm so if you miss it you will be staying overnight.

Ferry goes to Islay from Kennacraig near Tarbert - worth visiting the distilleries, particularly during the Malt Whisky Festival in May of each year. But perhaps too much for a day trip, particularly if you have been doing some in-depth sampling of the “twilight wine of Scotland”, to quote the late Alistair Cooke.

Hope you enjoy some of these suggestions. If you find something else that you would like to recommend to other guests, please mention it in your review.
