Description

This delightful, detached cottage is equipped and furnished to a very good standard. There are two decked seating areas at the front and rear of the cottage, allowing guests to enjoy the wildlife in the enclosed garden. There is a light and airy open plan living/dining room with dual aspect French doors leading to the patio and separate balcony, the fully fitted kitchen also has a utility room. The family bathroom has shower over bath, and toilet, while the master bedroom has an en-suite shower room, and there is also another twin bedroom. Both of the spacious bedrooms have lovely garden views, and are tastefully furnished with black iron bedsteads and crisp, white linen.
Kilmore is a quiet village, south of Oban, close to the shores of Loch Feochan, a beautiful yet narrow sea loch favoured as a sheltered anchorage and perfect for birdwatching. Although the village itself has few amenities, the nearby Lerags Glen has a popular country pub, offering fine home cooked food and ales with informal music nights during the summer. Venturing further south, within a 20-minute drive and accessed over the ’Bridge over the Atlantic’, is the Isle of Seil and the historic slate mining village on Easdale Island, with boat trips, cafés, country museums and pubs.
Only 2 miles away is the bustling and beautiful resort town of Oban, ’Gateway to the Isles’ and departure point of ferries to the Inner and Outer Hebrides. The town is well served by numerous good restaurants, cafés, pubs and shops. It also boasts an excellent leisure centre. There is a lovely sandy beach at Ganavan, just 4 miles along the coastal road. Dunollie, Dunstaffnage and Kilchurn Castles are some of the nearby castles to visit as part of a day’s sightseeing. Further afield but within an hour’s drive, visitors can enjoy the scenery of Glencoe, take a trip to Fort William to see Ben Nevis, catch the ’Harry Potter’ train, or visit the jail and castle. Beach 4 miles. Shop, bar 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.
