Description

This charming, elegant third floor holiday apartment is located in an impressive sandstone, Victorian, Grade B listed building, and it enjoys stunning panoramic views over Oban Bay and the islands beyond of The Sound of Kerrera, Mull and Lismore. The apartment is beautifully presented and spacious, and has, in the past, been described as ’one of Scotland’s finest tenements’. It was built between 1905 to 1907 by the architect William Leiper.
It is centrally located in Oban, the ’seafood capital of Scotland’ with a variety of fish restaurants, a fishing boat fleet in the bay, curio shops, a leisure centre and a cinema conveniently on your doorstep. Whilst staying in this lovely area, enjoy taking a walk down to the beaches at Ganavan, or take a short ferry trip to the Island of Kerrera which has its very own castle. You can also go to the bustling ferry terminal and visit Mull, Colonsay, Tiree, Lismore and Barra.

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.
