The house lies in large grounds which our dog really loved. It is near to beautiful beaches and and walks and cycle paths. Ideal for family holidays. The views are beautiful from the very large conservatory. Easy run in the car to splendid restaurants, one of which is Pier house at Port Appin. Just 15mins away by car.

A really interesting and characterful property with lovely views and amazing gardens, which our daughters absolutely loved. It was lovely to sit in the conservatory in the evenings and watch the sunrise. The location was just off the main road between Oban and Fort William with lots of beautiful places to visit nearby. We had a lovely relaxing weekRead more. Hide

A very quiet location on the edge of a village without a shop. Convenient for all the coastal Lochaber hills including Glencoe, and Ardgour accessible. Property plenty big enough for our party of 6. The conservatory is a delightful light space at all times of day and is key . Property feels like you are using someone's house while they are away forRead more a while. There are many ornaments, books, nicknacks etc. They tell you quite a bit about the character and interests of the owner's family. Hide

We made the most of our holiday inspite of the cottage being quite old fashioned and musty. Young children may be fearful of all the stuffed animals and bones lying around the place. Bear in mind you will need to drive everywhere and the nearest restaurant is over 5 miles away.
