Alder Cottage is a warm and welcoming holiday cottage nestled on a hillside overlooking Loch Long and the Firth of Clyde, near Dunoon, Argyll. It’s one of four situated within a small holiday development called Stronchullin.

With lots of natural light and stunning views, it sleeps six people in three bedrooms. On the ground floor there’s a spacious open-plan sitting room and dining area with oak flooring and a wood burning stove.
From the lounge there is a patio door leading out to large decking and garden with magnificent views – the perfect spot for an alfresco drink.

Alder Cottage is located in the Cowal Peninsula, one of the most unspoiled and beautiful natural environments in Scotland.

Great stay in an amazing location

Had a great relaxing holiday away from it all ( the good weather was a bonus). Lots of walks to do and some great scenery. Would recommend the strone inn for food. Welcome pack was a lovely touch.

Having missed our usual visit to Scotland earlier in the year because of hospitalisation (hip operation) we decided to grab a late break. We had beautiful weather with blue skies and snow on the hills but at the end of November that did mean it was cold. We did struggle to get the cottage warm initially (We obviously wanted to be cosy at this time of the year and had seen somewhere in Argyll Holidays literature that there was central heating .... not sure that one storage heater for the whole kitchen/lounge area qualifies) but we eventually managed to master getting the wood burner to the optimum level and David was very prompt and helpful in supplying the extra wood that we got through. Will consider another visit but not quite so late in the year.



Enjoyed a comfortable stay

A comfortable cottage with a great view and nice deck to sit out on with perfect peace and quiet. Lots to do in local area and with the ferries can get to Isle of Bute and Kintyre. The Benmore Botanic garden is splendid as is Puck's Glen. The swimpool in Dunoon is very good especially on rainy days. The owners make you very welcome with eggs, milk and other goodies which was much appreciated. We didn't try the Quadbikes also based on the farm but they looked fun. Outside the cottage there is a red squirrel and lots of birds including a woodpecker. There are also bats who seem to like trying unusual homes as one morning my partner found one tucked into his laptop!




Peaceful holiday.

One of four holiday cottages on a farm. Milk, eggs, shortbread & meringues as a welcome. Lots of lovely walks nearby.
