A lovely stone cottage property situated close to the small ferry port of Oban and Benderloch, near the Sound of Mull and Loch Creran. Perfect for exploring Argyll and Bute.

Enjoy 66 acres of private estate at this sublime family home near Oban. Boasting direct access to a picturesque pebble beach, not to mention superb views over Loch Creran and the surrounding Argyll, you will be utterly captivated from the moment you arrive.

Spacious, private and oh-so luxurious, this picture-postcard cottage near Port Appin has everything you could need for a dream holiday. Generously sized for four people, it is perfect for solo breaks, romantic getaways and small group holidays. Wake up each morning to incredible vistas and go to sleep ready for tomorrow’s adventures.

An idyllic space for winding down, the light-filled lounge exploits the views over the loch and provides two sofas in which to settle in and enjoy the show, warmed by the crackling wood burner. Joining on from the lounge in an open-plan design, the kitchen-come-dining room makes mealtimes even more memorable, well-equipped with everything you could need as well as a cute breakfast island.

Heading upstairs, you will find the two bedrooms, both with double beds and great outlooks over the loch. To complete the scene, the cottage conveniently has two bathrooms; the upstairs bathroom has a rainfall shower and the downstairs bathroom has a walk-in shower.

Benefitting from access to a private pebbled beach, mornings will never have felt so good tiptoeing outside with a cup of tea and breathing in the revitalising air- please take caution as the rocks can be slippery. For meals en Plein air, the cottage has its own patio with garden furniture; dig into hearty feasts and later walk off your full tummies with a wander through some of the 66 acres of private farmland, making sure to close all gates behind you to prevent any a-wandering bovine visitors!

Ideally located close to the small ferry port of Oban and Benderloch, adventurers are in just the right place for exploring Argyll and Bute. Familiarise yourself with the locale and pick up one of the many walks from your doorstep, before heading further afield. A must visit, the town of Oban is 17 miles away. Overlooking the bay, it is known as the Gateway to the Isles, acting as the main port of passage to many of the surrounding islands. Also well stocked with shops, pubs, distilleries and interesting buildings (including its own Colosseum-replica, McCaig's Tower), it will be easy to pass the time here.

For somewhere a little closer to get a bite to eat, there is a great restaurant in Creagan, only 4 miles away, as well as eateries in the pretty Port Appin, also 4 miles away. Should you be interested in local history, make sure you pay a visit to Castle Stalker (4.5 miles), Achaduin Castle (12.5 miles) and Dunstaffnage Castle and Chapel (15 miles). If you fancy taking to the water, Loch Linnhe (4 miles) has lots of places to launch for a sea kayaking day trip and has plenty of great amenities available in the surrounding villages of Glencoe, Ballachulish, Onich and Fort William.

This property is personally managed by Gemma.

This cottage was the perfect setting for relaxing evenings following days walking the hills around Glencoe. We loved the fact we were so secluded down a private drive off a single track road.- and so did the wildlife. Daily visits from deer, herons, buzzards, and seals were a treat.

Stunning location and views across the loch. If you are looking for piece and quiet this is the place to go. The cottage is fully equipped and we had the beds and towels changed mid stay. Highly recommend this property.

It is a very comfortable house with all the mod cons, very well equipped compared to other rental properties I have used previously. Its location allows day trips out to some great places to visit on the West Coast of Scotland, or you just stand outside and soak in the stunning surroundings. Rent it you won't be disappointed.

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.
