Dunoon, Cowal Peninsula, Argyll and Bute, Scotland
Benmore Stable is a beautiful barn conversion set within the grounds of a working farm near Dunoon and is located within the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park.

This semi-detached cottage has been lovingly restored from the ruins of an old barn. The building has wonderful original features and is full of character; thick stone walls, some narrow slit windows, coombed ceiling upstairs and all the interior wood is Douglas Fir which has been harvested from the grounds of the farm itself, then hand crafted to achieve a high standard of detail.

The open plan living space has a wood burning stove, leather suite, wooden dining table and chairs. The kitchen is fully fitted and well equipped. The two bedrooms upstairs are spacious and light with velux windows.

The cottage has its own small enclosed garden area to the front. Benmore Bot...
