About this property

  • Dating from 1880, Millside Cottage is a traditional stone built two bedroom Victorian Cottage. In 1906 the property was in fact the telephone exchange for the area and has adopted many guises before settling as a holiday cottage in the 1970s. The accommodation spans two floors and is a traditional “two up two down” with period features throughout.

    The principal rooms face towards the loch with views through a clearing, across the adjoining field and over to Loch Awe. The kitchen / diner has a modern open plan set up, with a window seat to enjoy the outlook. The sitting room is of comfortable proportions and with the addition of a wood burning stove the property has an appealing character and cosy ambiance.

    Two bedrooms are found upstairs with a further additional storage cupboard. Again each bedroom benefits from the elevated position and beautiful views.

    Gardens and Grounds

    As homely as the interiors are, it is the position and setting of Millside that are perhaps more noteworthy. The property sits with the immediate surroundings being set to lawn to the front and rear. Outwith the immediate formal gardens are more natural, wild gardens. The land is bordered on one side by the burn, and on the other by mature woodland. The sound of running water and the secluded woodland very much epitomise the appeal of Millside. Within the grounds also lie the runs of former kennels and there may be scope to reinstate these or even restore and extend (subject to the necessary planning consents).

    Beyond the road lies a field of approximately 3 acres that runs all the way down to the loch, again bordered on one side by the burn and with metal fencing on the other.
