Balliemeanoch Farmhouse and Steading is located near the village of Strachur on the Cowal peninsula, one of Argyll’s hidden gems.  It is less than 1½ hours from Glasgow, but feels like another world – with scenes of outstanding natural beauty and views to die for at every turn.  Getting here is easy, and the incredible scenery you pass through on the way is all part of the pleasure!

Directions – from Dunoon

Take the A815  north towards Strachur and continue for around 15 miles, following the shore of Loch Eck.  Immediately after passing the ‘Welcome to Strachur’/40mph speed limit sign, take the next turning on the right, signposted ‘Succoth 1½ miles’.  (If you pass the Highland petrol station on the right hand side of the road, you have missed the turning!)  Follow the lane as it bends sharply around to the right, behind the sportsfield.  Continue past the Succoth turning, down the hill and across the bridge over the river then follow the track round to the right again.  You will see the steading ahead of you, on the right.  Continue past the steading and Balliemeanoch Farmhouse is on your right.
