Creagdhu Cottage is originally a 200 year old crofter's cottage. It was acquired by the present owner following one of the most hotly contested purchases of 2004, the sale breaking records of the number of viewers at a single property.
Since then the present owner has sympathetically restored and extended the property making it a near new home inside a 200 year old outer shell.
The house is of stone construction with painted smooth render finish all under a slated roof.
Glazed outer doors lead to a good sized reception hall which doubles well as a formal dining room. A sitting room is off, as is a fine family room. Both rooms feature exposed stone relief walls and cast iron solid fuel burners.
The kitchen is galley style and leads through to a rear hall way with w.c, and separate shower room.
Off the main hall is the main bathroom and doors lead to 4 bedrooms, the master having en suite facilities.
Throughout the cottage is a fine range of wardrobe and general purpose storage.

Creagdhu Cottage is located in an area of dramatic natural scenic beauty in Glen Croe in the beautiful Ardgarten Forest.
The cottage is set right on the edge of the river Croe and from the front there are views out to the southern side of the Cobbler which is the rugged peak that dominates the Arrochar district.
Creagdhu cottage is hidden away in a woodland clearing off a forestry track about 0.75 miles away from the Ardgarten Forestry visitor centre.
The gardens are made up of a level area of grass in front of the cottage, a gravel surfaced driveway from the forest track leads via exposed natural rocky outcrops to a hard standing area in front of the cottage. The gardens are fringed by the river Croe and coniferous woodland. The river Croe at the foot of the garden, fed by Loch Long, carries Salmon and Sea Trout.
