Description

This spacious cottage, located just yards from the edge of the loch, has a lovely decked area in which to sit, relax and enjoy the views over the loch and the hills beyond.

Port Appin has a superb seafood restaurant and a well-stocked village shop. Ferries frequently depart from here and travel across to Lismore, a wonderfully historic island with many ruins to explore, including two 13th-century castles and a broch (an Iron Age structure).

The area is famed for its natural rugged beauty and abundant wildlife including red deer, pine marten, wild cat and otters. Bird life including the magnificent golden eagle and sea eagle, and marine life are also in evidence and porpoises are regularly spotted. Wildlife tours both on sea and land are available in the area.

Fort William and Oban are both close by as is the famous Glencoe, a truly scenic glen. Its location in this most attractive area of the Highlands means that it is well-placed to take advantage of the many leisure and pleasure activities which the area has to offer. Beach 21 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ 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.
