Description

In an enviable location on the seafront of the bustling harbour town of Oban, with stunning sea views across to the Isle of Kerrera, this second floor apartment has been tastefully furnished and is very well equipped. It is ideally placed for those wishing to explore the west coast by day and sample the variety of restaurants and bars in the evening. Oban is known as the ’seafood capital of the UK’ and the ’gateway to the isles’. It is also home to the magnificent McCaigs Folly which towers above the town and it boasts a leisure centre and cinema. From the pier, regular boat trips leave for the inner isles, including Mull, Iona and Staffa, or a shorter 10 minute boat trip to the Isle of Kerrera makes a great day out. Argyll is steeped in history, with breathtaking scenery, and an abundance of wildlife. Thrill seekers can enjoy a sea safari trip to catch a glimpse of dolphins, whales and eagles, as well as the famous Corryvrekan Whirlpool. Forest trails offer leisurely walks, or mountain biking and a variety of other outdoor pursuits are available locally including kayaking, sailing, golf and fishing. Both Fort William and Glencoe are easily reached, are steeped in history and offer some popular climbing and skiing routes. Other places of interest include the Kintyre Peninsula, Kilmartin Glen and Inveraray. Bus and train terminals are within walking distance of the apartment.

About the local area

As you travel through Argyll, highland Scotland merges with the Scottish lowlands. In the north of the region is the bustling fishing port of Oban. Surrounded by the sweeping mountains of Lorn this is the ideal base from which to tour the Highlands to the north.

The Isle of Mull is only a short ferry trip away. Mull's capital, Tobermory, is instantly recognised by its famous brightly painted buildings. The island has a fascinating history being once home to the Chief of the Clan MacLean and site of the clan's ancient Duart Castle which has spectacular views from its battlements.

South along the coast are the unspoilt glens and bays of Mid-Argyll and Kintyre and the islands of Islay and Jura which are easily reached by ferry. Visit the whitwashed houses of Inveraray and the turreted Inveraray Castle, home to the Dukes of Argyll. Campbelltown in Kintyre was the scene of Viking repulsions at Saddell Abbey and has some lovely beaches nearby.

The captivating Isle of Bute lies at the heart of the Firth of Clyde, a place of tranquil relaxation with sheltered coves and sandy bays. Ideal for leisurely hiking and easy-going cycling on quiet back roads. Maybe take in the grandeur of Rothesay Castle or Mount Stuart - the House and gardens of the Marquess of Bute.
