Description

This wonderful house, refurbished in 2019, is beautifully situated within the Lerags Glen, offering complete rural peace and quiet, yet convenient for Oban, just a 10-minute drive to the north. Achalic Beag is situated on a working sheep farm and has been designed to look like a traditional highland cottage from the outside, yet has been completely refreshed and modernised inside, with brand new kitchen. As you begin to wind your way down the glen on the quiet, single-track road, you get a sense of the tranquillity and the wonderful landscapes you are about to enjoy. You will pass the bar/restaurant, where you can enjoy hearty local fare and a range of cask ales, along with a warm welcome from the locals.
The beautiful panoramic views from this cosy cottage are best enjoyed from the spacious, triple aspect living room, where you can sit and enjoy a quiet drink by the wood burner and watch the shadows lengthen across the glen. The large windows provide expansive vistas across the surrounding fields, hillsides dotted with sheep and the beautiful woodlands beyond. The area has an abundance of wildlife including red and roe deer, red squirrel, pine martin, occasional sea eagles overhead and otters in the nearby burn and sea loch, Loch Feochan, 500 yards to the west. Beach 6½ miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 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.
