The Old Schoolhouse at Cumlodden is situated midway between Furnace and Minard, the villages it served for 60 years from 1818. The house lies at the end of the pavement from Furnace, which supports a shop and post office, primary school and health centre. Inveraray, 9 miles to the north-east and Lochgilphead, 15 miles to the south-west provide excellent local amenities and shops with primary education in both and secondary school in the latter. Glasgow, 66 miles away, offers a full range of higher and further education services as well as all the cultural and professional services normally associated with a major city. The main A83 road provides good communications with the central belt with 5 buses a day to and from Glasgow and the nearest train station approximately 25 miles away at Dalmally.
The locality of Lochfyneside offers much in the way of outdoor pursuits including cross-country cycle routes, hill walks and challenging climbs, the famous Crarae National Trust gradens, events in the various village halls and the Auchindrain Museum which can be reached by the river Leacainn Walk out of Furnace. Mid-Argyll presents some of the most dramatic seascapes and landscapes on the West Coast. Sea, river and loch fishing is easily available. Cumlodden offers excellent opportunities for boating/yachting on Loch Fyne, leading not only to the Clyde Estuary but also to the Crinan Canal allowing quick access to the Western Isles and the Atlantic.
