                                  Finnich Steading cottages are perfectly placed for visitors to explore some of the most beautiful scenery in Scotland. The Loch Lomond National Park provides a huge range of outdoor activities including water sports, hiking and biking. The famous West Highalnd Way passes through the charming village of Drymen a short distance away. Riding, golf on a variety of courses and fishing on the river Endrick can all be arranged nearby. The local area provides a range of friendly pubs and small restaurants, art galleries, a range of shops, and an excellent medical centre.

                                  Glengoyne Distillery is only 3 miles away and caters for visitors seven days a week. Alternatively visitors may just want to relax in the peaceful surroundings and enjoy the woodlands and countryside of the estate and the many walking paths close by. The cottages are perfect for family holidays. Children will love the freedom the grounds provide and pets are welcome if warning is given in advance.

                                  Owner info

                                  Year Purchased: 1992

                                  About the owner: Andrew and Marguerite Dewar Durie bought this estate when Andrew moved to Scotland to run a large Whisky Company based in Dumbarton . His Family originally came from Fife and Andrew is the Chief of the Duries. He is also a member of the Standing Council of Scottish Chiefs. If you are interested to trace back your ancestry, this is where you should base yourself. Marguerite is Austrian and is an Interior Designer. She has planned and designed the beautiful cottages.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Helensburgh:
                                  Finnich Malise Estate had been little cared for for many years and presented a major and exciting challenge to us when we bought it. First priority was to repair and re-decorate the beautiful Georgian house and then to start recovering the parkland with its 200 year old trees. A separate project was to completely re build the derelict 19th century Steading buildings and convert them into 4 holiday cottages. The projects continue with the recent planting of 9 ha of mixed Scottish woodland.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                                  The uniqueness of the Finnich Malise estate which was evident to us when we first saw it, was its location. Close enough to Glasgow and Stirling but positioned in its own 200 acres of grounds to give total peace and tranquillity, with stunning views to the western North over the National Park and with easy access to Loch Lomond , 5 miles away.
