Minard is a tiny hamlet on the road down the west shore of Loch Fyne, about 12 miles south of Inveraray (all facilities). If you leave the road and descend about half a mile on a good track through the woods to the edge of the loch, you will come to Minard Court and the two pretty semi-detached cottages, Loch and Garden. The owner's house, a little way up the track, is the only neighbour.

Or you can continue south down the Mull of Kintyre to Campbeltown and Machrihanish (golf, surfing, kayaking).
