Description

Tigh Beg Croft has to be one of the ultimate secluded Highland hideaways - there are no garden fences, only the open land and the sea to gaze at. This classic ’get away from it all’ location near Oban in Argyll is set in some fifty acres of informal hill land and shore line giving way to spectacular walking country. The detached croft and this part of the coastline were used in the 1968 filming of ’Ring of Bright Water’ and more recently in the final scenes of ’Enigma’, based on the Robert Harris thriller. This special place is quietly situated at the sea entrance to Loch Feochan, with spectacular views down the ’Firth of Lorn’, and yet only 6 miles from Oban with all its quality amenities, shops and restaurants. Access is by a private track road of about 1½ miles with the final approach over unsurfaced track - perfect for four wheel drive, but not essential! You can also access Tigh Beg Croft by sea. A country pub is situated further up the glen offering fine home cooked food and ales with informal music nights during the season. Tigh Beg Croft makes a great holiday destination at anytime of year and will allow you to totally relax and unwind. Shop 6 miles, pub and restaurant 3 miles.
Tigh Beg Croft can be booked together with Pitstruan (30916) to accommodate up to 16 guests.

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.
