Strachur, Argyll and Bute, Scotland
Built in 1898, Springburn Cottage is full of character and history – George Bernard Shaw stayed here. Situated in the Highland village of Strachur on the banks of Loch Fyne in Argyll, it’s been lovingly restored and is full of country charm.

The living room has a fireplace and wooden floor and the kitchen/dining area has a beamed ceiling and a quarry-tiled floor. The bathroom and utility room are also downstairs. There’s a steep staircase to first floor where there are two double bedrooms, one with an ornamental fireplace and a sofa-bed (for +one). The cottage is in the grounds of the owners’ home, but has its own sitting-out area with marvellous views.

We had a wonderful time in this beautiful cottage on Loch Fyne. The cottage itself was very cosy and comfortable. We visited lots of places in the surrounding area. Knapdale forest was a favourite. The best part was having a beach to ourselves to skim stones and play in the water. If you want to get away from it all...

This cottage is the ideal of a cottage. It's so cozy, so comfortable, so nicely arranged. And Val is wonderful. We came without a car (us fools) and when Val knew, she offered to pick us up from Strachur. She returned us as well when we left, and offered to drive us around. What a lovely lovely lady. And she...

We had an amazing time during our stay. Mrs Neville was an amazing, lovely hostess, making sure we were set up alright and giving us some tips on attractions and good places to eat in the area. The lovingly decorated cottage is set in a great location for exploring the islands off the West coast - famous for their distilleries...
