Description

In an elevated position next to Pulpit Hill Viewpoint, and with stunning views to the Western Isles and Oban Bay just outside the front gate, this detached holiday home is in a perfect location for exploring the west coast of Scotland. The large kitchen/dining room leads into a bright living room, all enjoying views of Ben Cruachan. Known as the Seafood Capital of the UK, Oban has many excellent restaurants and boasts a distillery, cinema, leisure centre and a variety of shops. From the bustling harbour, regular ferries leave for many of the Isles including Mull, Staff and Iona. Oban is surrounded by beautiful scenery, and wildlife is abundant with dolphins, otters, porpoise and sea eagles. Inveraray Jail, Cruachan Hollow Mountain and Bonawe Ironworks make for great days out and there are plenty of wonderful gardens and historic castles to visit. Popular outdoor activities are available nearby with kayaking, cycling and walking to name but a few. For the less energetic, the Viewpoint is just yards from the house and is the ideal place to sit and take in the magnificent views whilst the ferries come and go. Beach 1 mile. Shop and restaurant 1 mile, pub ¾ mile.

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.
