With spectacular views and a tranquil location, this lovely ground-floor apartment is part of a beautiful house, dating back to 1840, on the outskirts of the charming village of Duror of Appin.

This delightful ground floor apartment in the heart of the Scottish West Highlands is set against a breathtaking backdrop that includes majestic mountains, rivers and lochs, making it a great location for a romantic getaway. Despite the property’s peaceful location, it is situated within a mile of the small villages of Duror and Kentallen, so the village shop is not far away. Whatever the season, there is a vast range of outdoor activities on offer, from golf and cycling in the summer to skiing and hiking in the winter, plus many more. Keen mountaineers will be pleased to know that Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak, is only 27 miles away and for Munro-baggers, Ben Sgulaird is only 17 miles away. This property is also close to the popular and picturesque towns of Glencoe (10 miles), Fort William (19.5 miles) and Oban (25 miles) which are all set amongst some of Britain’s most spectacular scenery.

One of three self-contained properties in this 19th Century house, this apartment is located on the ground floor. This well-presented apartment has an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, but they are separated by archways, creating a sense of space. The lounge has impressive views from the large windows, but of an evening, you can pull the curtains and sink into the comfortable sofas. The dining area has ample seating for two guests and the modern kitchen is well-equipped. Moving into the king-size bedroom (can be made up as two twins on request), you will find yet more views of the delightful countryside, whilst the modern, white bathroom completes the accommodation.

Outside, there is dining furniture in the extensive grounds, which you share with guests in the other properties, so that you can sit and soak up the tranquillity and views of the surrounding countryside. You are also welcome to wander around and enjoy the beautiful garden.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • 1 of 3 self-contained properties
  • 1 bedroom: a zip-and-link super-king bed (which can be made up as twin beds on request)
  • Kitchen with electric oven and hob, microwave, washer/dryer, and fridge with small ice compartment  
  • Lounge with double sofa bed, TV, DVD and Hi-Fi
  • Bathroom with shower over bath and WC
  • Outdoor table and chairs Garden is shared when other properties within the house are occupied
  • Heating, electric and Wi-Fi included but this can be intermittent due to location
  • 2 dogs welcome per property 

The villages of Duror and Kentallen are not far from the Argyll Coastal Route from Balluchulish in the north and Oban in the south. Located close to the shores of the breathtaking Loch Linnhe, this property offers guests the chance to take part in a number of activities, such as kayaking, fishing and sailing. The area's wildlife, such as seals, porpoises and golden eagles, in addition to its magnificent scenery and sunsets makes it popular with photographers.

The Kentallen to Ballachulish cycle path, which is part of the National Cycle Network, is great if you're keen cyclists, or if you're looking for something more leisurely, the pebble beach of Cuil Bay is only a short stroll away (1.2 miles) and the views of the mountains are spectacular. To see more of the sea loch, you can take a cruise and enjoy the commentary. Castle Stalker (6.5 miles), a 15th century keep standing proud on its tidal islet in Loch Linnhe, is perfect for a touch of history and beauty, but visits are limited and should be pre-booked.

If you become enamoured with gorgeous Glencoe, make your way to the Highlands Titles Nature Reserve (1.5 miles) to become a Laird, Lord or Lady of Glencoe by bagging yourself a small piece of land as a souvenir and helping to preserve this special place which is home to lots of wildlife from deer to pine martens.

The property is well positioned for exploring a wide area between Oban and Fort William and further west. The apartment was warm and comfortable - well presented for two people and a dog.

This cottage is in an exceptional area of natural beauty and gives easy access to various well-known visitor destinations. The flat is on the ground floor so perfect for a dog. The grounds of the cottage are perfect for morning dog-walking. There are lots of pubs and restaurants nearby but you generally need to book in the holiday season. The flat Read morewas newly renovated but rather over furnished for two people. We had a wonderful holiday. Hide

Lovely comfortable cottage with good quality furnishings and equipment. Quiet spot with beautiful space at the back, open fields. Good local places to visit, ie Port Appin, and easy to get to Oban and Fort William.

Reviewed by Alastair 25th May 2019

The property is set in beautiful grounds, with lovely views (especially at sunset). It is well-equipped and comfortable and we really didn't mind spending time on a wet afternoon just relaxing in the quiet and comfortable environment. You do need to drive to any walks or attractions - it's about 7 miles from Glencoe and 20 from Fort William, Ben NeRead morevis etc., but the roads are so beautiful that this was not a problem. Easy to reach Mull and Iona as well, although that needs a full day out. Hide

Actually several apartments in an extended house. The one we stayed in was comfortable and quite well equipped. Theres a pleasant view out the back over a field with a stream running through it, a line of trees, and some mountains in the background on the other side of the loch. Had a couple of stags in the garden one night and another night it wasRead more clear and dark enough to see the Milky Way. Oban, Fort William, and Glencoe are nearby. The Old Inn on the way to Oban makes a really good local. 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.
