Anyone recognise this cottage - maybe Grogport?

Attached is cottage photo was sent from Kintyre to relatives in Australia, probably in the late 19th century. Does anyone recognise it? It may be around Killeonan or Grogport.
Family surnames include Cameron and McConachy, Southend and McFarlane (b. South Knapdale, but living and working in Killeonan in 1862) and Campbell (b. Carradale - in Killeonan 1862). In the 1871 and 1881 Census the McFarlanes were in Grogport.
It does not appear to match up with where the Camerons/McConachys were in Southend.
