Glenstriven is an exceptional quality residential, sporting and forestry estate. It was purchased by the present owner in 1981 and during the past 30 years has been developed and improved in many ways. Glenstriven House has been comprehensively refurbished and modernised and is maintained and run to a high standard. The other houses have also been modernised to provide good quality, comfortable accommodation.

All the properties are in elevated positions with stunning views over Loch Striven, apart from Pier Cottage which sits adjacent to Loch Striven. The estate pier provides access to the West Coast via Loch Striven itself, the Isles of Bute and the Clyde offering a wide variety of boating and sailing opportunities with some of the best sailing in the British Isles and Europe.

The Estate has witnessed the development of a world class Pheasant and Partridge shoot, which is recognised as one of the best shoots in Scotland.

The Estate was awarded ‘highly commended’ in the Purdey Awards in 2001 for Wild Game Conservation in recognition of the quality of habitat, conservation and game management employed on the Estate.

Parties from as far as the US and Hong Kong return year after year to shoot the most challenging of birds.

The hills above Glenstriven House with their commercial and amenity woodlands on the lower slopes and heather-clad tops, produce grazing for both Red and Roe deer; these animals thrive and grow to a significant size on account of the diverse habitat and mild west coast weather.

The Glenstriven Estate is a peaceful and secluded destination set in the breathtaking countryside of Argyll. It provides the most peaceful and secluded location with attractive walks, wonderful views, hills to climb and beautiful gardens to appreciate. We welcome guests with a diverse range of interests and seek to ensure they enjoy a memorable break from their busy lives.
