In a private garden location, Westering Cottage is ideal for guests wanting to be right by the waters edge. You are in the village – but it doesn't feel like it. The cottage If it is a loch view property in a private setting you are looking for, then Westering Cottage certainly ticks those boxes. Located on the private Inverlounan Road on the east shore of Loch Goil you benefit from the sun all day until it dips over the mountains in the west. With a mature and private garden this cottage is a real sun trap. The pictures speak for themselves. You can't get any closer to the loch without actualy being in it. There is a parking bay for one car at the entrance to the cottage. 17 steps down from the entrance to access the cottage. The garden surrounds three sides of Westerings.
