We’re not knocking Norway’s fjords or bashing the beaches of Bora Bora but when it comes to coastlines we’ve fallen hook, line and sinker for Scotland’s West Coast.
Make the most of the epic beauty on our doorstep with today’s Big Deal on a three night stay in a 4 star, self catering cottage at Portavadie on Loch Fyne.
Only two hours from Glasgow, Portavadie offers a haven of tranquillity among some of Scotland’s most striking scenery.
Each morning, you will be able to wake up to beautiful views of the Marina and Loch Fyne and enjoy a coffee on your terrace overlooking the marina.
Available Sunday to Thursday, this offer is for a three consecutive night stay in a two bedroom cottage. A bottle of house wine on arrival will help you settle into your peaceful accommodation.
Overlooking the marina, the two-bedroom four-star holiday cottages are bright, warm and spacious with wooden floors, colourful rugs, leather sofas and all the modern comforts. With one double bedroom with en-suite shower room and one twin bedroom, there is plenty of space to sleep up to four. There is also an additional bathroom.
The open-plan living area has comfy sofas, a flatscreen TV, cushions and throws while the kitchen is kitted out with modern appliances offering you a true home from home.
Each cottage has its own outdoor seating area with space for two to three cars to park on your own private driveway.
Portavadie offers great choices for those nights when you just don’t want to cook.
In the fabulous Marina Restaurant and Bar, guests can enjoy waterfront dining while the Lodge Kitchen and Bar serves hearty portions of home-style food.
Both restaurants use local, seasonal produce including seafood from Loch Fyne and venison from the hills.
See & do
Portavadie, Loch Fyne is the perfect place for an active break. Known as Argyll’s Secret Coast, this area is great for outdoor activities. Go wild on the west coast with a host of adventures on land and sea, from cycling forest tracks to walking coastal paths.
Hire a bike or kayak or charter a yacht and explore the coastline with the wind in your hair. You might see deer, buzzards, otters, golden eagles, red squirrels and even, if you are very lucky, basking sharks while you are out and about.
At the height of summer, the fish around here are plentiful. You can fish off the rocks, local piers or by taking a boat trip. There are three, well stocked lochs only five minutes’ drive from Portavadie where you can fish for trout.
Lots of guests have left glowing reviews on TripAdvisor after a stay at Portavadie. This recent review sums up all that’s wonderful about the place:
‘Weather wasn’t great but it didn’t stop us getting out for walks and enjoying the fresh air and scenery. Then to come back and just drink in the view is amazing. As we were here as a family with young grandchildren we didn’t use the restaurant this time, but previous experience found the quality to be more than good. A comfortable, relaxing break and we can’t wait until our next visit. Go there – you will love it.’
One of Scotland’s most memorable stretches of coastline is just two hours from Glasgow.
Make your summer one to remember with today’s Big Deal on a three night stay in Portavadie on the shores of Loch Fyne.
