About Mrs. Janet Cowie

I was born and brought up on a farm in Lancashire. I moved to Shandon in Argyll just before our son was born in 1979. We built Garemount Lodge a few years later to the design of a Scottish cottage. In 1991 we built an extension with the purpose of providing a Bed & Breakfast business, which I ran until 2004. We then converted this section of the house into a self-catering accommodation, with an open-plan kitchen/living room downstairs and a double bedroom with adjoining bathroom upstairs. I was pleased to be awarded a 4 Star grading by the Scottish Tourist Board (Visit Scotland). Over the years we have enjoyed welcoming visitors to our home from all over the world.

Mrs. Janet Cowie purchased this cottage in 1986
