A traditional Highland farmhouse with views over the Firth of Lorne, close to the beach and some excellent walking country.

Situated in a spectacular elevated location 7 miles to the north of Oban, this spacious property offers cosy and comfortable accommodation for a family or a group of friends looking for a tranquil holiday retreat. The property is full of character and charm and offers spacious, relaxing accommodation for up to ten guests. With stunning sea views across the Firth of Lorne and towards the distant mountains of Mull, this traditional Highland farmhouse has been thoughtfully extended and updated to provide an ideal base for guests looking to explore Argyll’s spectacular scenery.

Tastefully decorated in calm, neutral tones, this delightful property features several attractive living spaces and is beautifully furnished, with wooden flooring throughout. With a bright and cheerful dining room at the heart of the house, this is a wonderful place for a family to gather to chat about the day. You can also relax in the large and elegant main lounge with its cosy wood burner and bay window which gives panoramic views across the loch.

On entering this charming property, you will find a large and inviting lounge which makes a wonderful space to relax in, with a wood burner, large bay window and plenty of comfortable seating. The stylish kitchen is fully equipped for preparing your favourite meals, which you can then enjoy in the comfort of the spacious, light and attractive dining room which also features an oil-fired Rayburn and a sofa. Exploring further, there’s a study and an additional lounge with a TV and open fire. The first of five delightful bedrooms is on the ground floor – a charming twin room. The ground floor also features a utility room and vestibules with plenty of space for coats and boots.

The first floor is accessed via two separate staircases. The first staircase leads up from the main lounge to two tastefully furnished double bedrooms which share an attractive bathroom with a roll-top bath and two showers. The second staircase leads from the hallway and up to the two final bedrooms: a double and a twin, which share a bathroom complete with a shower over the bath.

Stepping outside, you can unwind with a morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evenings on the charming south-facing terrace which is perfect for viewing stunning sunsets. You can also explore the garden which spreads across 2 acres. The property is close to the A828, with a lovely stretch of shingle beach just beyond, allowing you to enjoy breathtaking early-morning shoreline walks up towards Tralee Bay. Nearby are the historic, moss-clad stones of an ancient Highland burial site, and a ruined stone bothy which was once a blacksmith’s workshop.

A very old building, but lovely and warm with heating, raeburn and log fire. A few minor things that you would expect with an old house but nothing that impacts the experience. Gorgeous views and great walks nearby, with both a local shop in walking distance and only 5 miles to Oban. Really comfy beds and lots of space. Great for a winter getaway.

Reviewed by Mrs Bluett April 2019

Really good house, but a bit close to the road (well double glazed though) and another shower (or even an extra loo) would have been ideal. In two parts - teenagers down one end........grown-ups the other - perfect!! Kitchen well equipped but hob a nightmare to work - happily was able to do most cooking on the Rayburn. Beautiful new (large) fridge Read more- a boon when cooking for a large team of teenagers. Some dodgy electrics in the utility room (sparks and smoke!!!) Brilliant views and great location - Dunstaffnage just down the road and can highly recommend Chris Jackson (Etive Boat Trips.) Port Appin not far and lovely walk round Eriska, up Ben Lora and Castle Stalker. Even went down to Crinan (and Dunardry Trig point) Blessed by perfect week of weather (mind you - worked out the last time we had no rain or mist on a West Coast holiday was in 1989!!) Hide

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
