Beautiful, fully restored country house and cottage by Loch Fyne

Location

Pennymore House and Pennymore Stable Cottage occupy a beautiful rural position close to the north shore of Loch Fyne at the edge of the Kenmore Forest. The house, which faces directly to the loch, has beautiful open aspects. It is situated approximately 2 miles from the village of Furnace where local amenities include a local shop/post office, primary school, dentist, village hall, church and a GP surgery. The nearby town of Inveraray was built on the site of an early fishing village by the 3rd Duke of Argyll. In the mid 1700s he demolished the old village in favour of a grand castle and embarked on one of the most ambitious rebuilding programmes ever seen in the Western Highlands. The result is the classic 18th century planned town with straight wide streets and dignified Georgian homes which remain today. Some of Britain's most spectacular scenery is found in this area of Scotland. There is superb hill walking in the area with numerous Munros. It is also a renowned area for field sports and sailing.
