Cycling, walking and driving for sight-seeing all have their adherents.  Watersports are plentiful and near, fishing (sea, loch, and river) and stalking and shooting can all be arranged.  Half a dozen golf courses are situated within 40 minutes, several designed by James Braid.   There are two sailing schools and two fantastic out door adventure centres within 35 minutes...

Although just an hour and a half from Glasgow, Ormidale sits in some of the loveliest scenery in Scotland. The Kyles of Bute are renowned amongst both walkers and sailors as amongst the most stunning bits of coast in Scotland. Whatever the weather in Argyll – and we do enjoy a remarkably mild micro-climate - this is great country for site seeing, with every corner revealing a new variation on the theme of mountain, loch, valley, sky, woodland, sea, rock, beach. The Cowal peninsula is a fabulous base for an active holiday with marvelous wildlife, numerous gardens and other tourist attractions to visit, and all sporting activities catered for.

Ormidale has grounds of 23 acres, and sits about a mile above the head of Loch Riddon, enjoying complete privacy and lovely views down the glen to the river Ruel. The Island of Bute itself is as little as 15 minutes away from the house – accessed via a ferry from Colintraive – and was a “must visit” destination long before Stella McCartney got married there or former racing driver Johnnie Dumfries moved into Mount Stuart House as the new Marquess of Bute.

Inverary with its famous Jail and Castle, seat of Clan Campbell for the last few hundred years, is only 45 minutes away, as is Loch Lomond. Dunoon is another tourist destination in its own right, and just under half an hour away. You can get to Glen Coe, Stirling, or Oban in under two. Fort William, Ben Nevis and Edinburgh are easy enough day trips – reachable in less than 2 and a half hours of lovely driving.  Island hopping to Bute, Arran, Gigha, Islay, and Jura is easy.  The Portavadie ferry terminal is only 25 minutes away and an hourly service runs across to Tarbert,  Mull, Iona, and Skye are a tad further away.

Ormidale sits midway between Tighnabruaich and Colintraive.  The postcode is PA22 3AF.
