Description

This spacious and secluded holiday cottage is set within private grounds in picturesque Lerags Glen, at the head of Loch Feochan. Enjoying sea loch views, it makes a wonderful holiday retreat. Nestling by the water’s edge, it is attractively decorated throughout and visitors can relax and enjoy the tranquillity of the views and wildlife on the loch, looking over to Ardoran Marine and the surrounding spectacular undulating hills of the west coast landscape. The property is 6 miles from Oban, the ‘Gateway to the Isles’, with its many attractions, shopping and eateries and regular ferries to the Inner Hebrides. You can enjoy visiting a wealth of attractions on offer here, ranging from an exciting Seafari, a visit to a distillery, a day at the Atlantis Leisure Centre with its water slides, the intriguing Oban War & Peace Museum and the Scottish Sea Life Sanctuary - a spectacular aquarium with a busy rescue facility for abandoned seal pups, as well as natural marine displays with talks and feeding demonstrations throughout the day. Many outdoor activities such as horse riding, golf, sailing, sub-aqua diving, canoeing and sea angling can be found locally. Shop 6 miles, pub and restaurant 3 miles.

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.
