Knockdow House is a remote property on the Cowal peninsula, Argyll. The house is breathtakingly plush, offering a glimpse into this far-flung and mysterious corner of the world.

Knockdow House is the ideal escape. It is a truly special building which has been beautifully restored and finished. It is secluded and tranquil, with three self-contained suites, including a School House suite (which was formerly used as a school room), and the Cumbrae Suite.

Introducing the Cumbrae Suite

The Cumbrae suite is large and elegant with lots of attention to detail. Situated within one corner of Knockdow, it has thick, soft carpets and heavy, trimmed curtains, and it is clear that a great deal of pride has been invested into it to maintain its excellent condition.

The master bedroom has a large marble en-suite, as well as a bay window looking out onto the glorious grounds of Knockdow. Aside from a big and beautifully furnished seating area, there is also a twin room that is elegantly furnished to maintain its traditional 18th century appeal.

Other Rooms in Knockdow House

Knockdow House itself has many large rooms, including a wonderful entrance room with plenty of attention to detail. From plush carpeting and elegant furnishings to matching mirrors and light fittings, everything is meticulously thought out and presented. There are plenty of stained glass windows, as well as etched antique glass window, complete with the Lamont coat of arms. All of this adds to the legacy and antiquity of the property. 

Up until recently, Knockdow House was used as an exclusive-use wedding venue, and it is clear why. Everything from the rooms to the interior is sumptuous and thoughtful, with furnishings that are consistent with the era of the property.

The high domed glass ceiling is the perfect spot to say your vows under, while the grounds would make the perfect setting for a romantic wedding in the Scottish highlands.

You could easily while away many hours exploring the grounds, including two lakes, as well as a former mill pond.

While Knockdow House is remote, nowhere in the region is difficult to reach if you have access to a car. Aside from Knockdow, there is the nearby town of Dunoon, which is close to Benmore Botanic Garden, a mountainous destination rich in seasonal colours, offering a fantastic way to immerse yourself in the beauty of nature.
