Taynuilt house description

The house has a hallway entrance with coat hooks, and shoe racks bench seat and adjoining loo and shower room. This opens into the main spacious vaulted living area (8mx8m), with floating hearth and large log burner. The living area has comfortable seating for 12, a piano and stereo with CD player and iPod connection. The large very well equipped modern kitchen has plenty of storage space, double dishwasher, large fridge freezer and large induction cooker (5 ring cooker with 2 large ovens and a large grill) Also a Quooker (express hot water, no kettle required) The dining area has a large refectory table, which easily seats 12. There are 6 bedrooms - 4 doubles and 2 twins/doubles, and extra gallery bedroom with double sofa-bed. All beds are super-king size and the master bedroom has a 7' x 6'6' bed with luxury en-suite bathroom. The house has 6 bathrooms. There is a TV Room with comfortable seating for 12, with smart TV, DVD Player, and log burner.
Outside the 2.4m wide deck surrounds the lower floor and is an idyllic space to sit, there are French doors from both the Master bedroom, TV room and Cottage Sitting room.

Nature / Otter spotting: We have seen Otters in Ben Dhuirrnish Bay on many occasions. There is a solitary Otter seen quite regularly and we have also seen the female with her cubs and occasionally the father as well (only once see all three and I don't think the female Otter was that happy with the father being there!) These Otter sightings are tide and weather dependent and can not be guaranteed - but I have loads of video film (many occasions 30 minutes plus of video and also some amazing photographs of the otter close-up). With luck and patience it is just a fantastic experience and has made the holiday for many of our guests.

Nature / Bird Watching: Resident common gulls, mallard, eider, herons, we also see mergansers and goosanders, little grebes, kingfishers and many other birds including peregrines, merlins, buzzards, hooded crows and further up the loch we have spotted Golden Eagles. Towards the head of the loch there is a seal colony, which can be seen from the Taynuilt Cruise Boat.

Fishing / Sea and Fresh Water: Bonawe is a known fishing mark for sea anglers. The Loch has the Scottish record hake, Skate up to 40 lbs, Spurdog and Dogfish. Thornback Ray, Cod and Pollock into double figures and Mackerel, Whiting, Ling, Haddock, Coalfish and other species available.
The spurdog fishing in Loch Etive is excellent. The Scottish shore record of 15lb 3oz was caught here in 1991. Fishing in front of the house can be productive with massive shoals of Mackerel coming into Ben Dhuirrinsh Bay and are easily catchable on light tackle from the shore - brilliant fun.
Boats can be hired from Taynuilt boat hire and these can be delivered to the jetty at the end of the island - very handy and great fun.
Happy Fishing....
