About Penny Graham Weall

Andrew and I lived in Tignabruaich for seen years during which time we ran the Tighnabruaich Gallery - which is right beside the house and still happliy thriving under the capable guidance of Robbie. In 2015 family called and we moved down to Hereford

Penny Graham Weall purchased this house in 2012

Why Penny Graham Weall chose Tighnabruaich

My father moved here in 2012. He loved this house. He was in the navy for many years and loved being by the sea. When he died left Waterside to my brother and myself. We have had many family parties and occasions here and it remains a precious part of us all

What makes this house unique

It is unique

The views, the space, sense of being in the elements - yet warm at the same time

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a reluctant review as when word spreads about this property we may struggle to book again! The most well designed and thought out property with incredible views across to bute all to be enjoyed from the 18m balcony. Couple that with a walk out the back door to shops and restaurants in a really lovely and friendly village with fishing for kids off the nearby pontoon (25x mackrel in one session!) and probably the most scenic golf course we ever played just up the road, just fantastic. One blocked bath trap during the stay and penny on the case, plumber in at 9am and fixed therefore you can rely on this owner to do all they can to ensure you have best experience. House was spotlessly clean and bedrooms better than most high end boutique hotels.



The nearby £10 million portavadie leisure complex offers indoor and outdoor pools and spa, like bathwater outside enabling you to relax and enjoy amazing views of loch whatever the weather.



You can see from the very grand stone built victorian houses that the village was a place for the rich to holiday back in the day and it hasnt lost any of its grandure.



Like most we normally go further north into the highlands but due to elderly family on this trip decided to stay a bit further south and whilst the area doesnt have the big munros, it has its own special feel and character which really took us by surprise.



This is probably the best cottage we have stayed at in the last twenty years and beleive me when I say I am fussy!



Huge thankyou to penny for giving us a memory that we will never forget and for sharing her wonderful home with us and we would love to return.

Great Property, Fantastic View

  • 5 of 5

The property is very modern and large, more so than in the photos. The kitchen was well fitted out with everything required and the lounge and sun-rooms particularly comfortable. Great idea to have the TV in the sun-room and none in the lounge with the alternative of using the games room as well. The four en-suite bedrooms are very comfortable with the two front rooms having the fantastic views to Bute. Even in the fairly wet weather it was a pleasure to sit and watch the tides change and views come and go, and when the sun did shine, there's no better view to be had. The property is in the centre of the small village of Tignhabruich which meant there was the opportunity to shop locally at the small store and several alternatives for eating out whilst plenty to do within walking distance. The bistro Botanica is particulalry fine for morning coffees and evening meals. Getting aroung the Bute and the Cowal Peninsula and over to he Mull of Kintyre is very easy using the brilliant CalMac ferries. Overall, we'd return in a moment.
