Description

Set in a quiet location yet only a short walk away from Oban’s town centre, this well-appointed, second floor holiday apartment provides extremely comfortable accommodation for 4 guests. Having been completely refurbished in 2019, the apartment has been furnished to a very good standard and makes an ideal base from which to explore all that Oban has to offer. The apartment lies just 300 yards from McCaigs Folly, as the crow flies and has views over Oban Bay from its elevated position.

Oban has an abundance of shops and restaurants, and the Corran Esplanade and promenade which runs alongside Oban Bay. The Oban Whisky Distillery with tours and a shop is well worth a visit. Known as the gateway to the isles, guests can easily take a day trip from Oban to Iona or Mull, and be back in time to sample the various culinary delights. There are boat trips available for sea fishing as well as permit fishing at many lochs including Loch Etive, Loch Awe, Loch Nell, Loch Scammadale and Loch Melfort, where you can fish for salmon and trout. There is also a leisure centre within a short walk too. For guests who love music the Oban Live music festival is held every June.

The area of Argyll surrounding Oban has so much to offer all ages and interests. To the north there is the famous Hollow Mountain at Cruachan, which is home to a hydro scheme built deep into the mountain and a reservoir high above, a unique attraction for all the family. To the south is Kilmartin Glen, an area rich in historical legacy, offering over 350 ancient monuments to find and explore. The marvellous countryside, stunning scenery and sea views provide great opportunities to spot wildlife; deer are on the hillside, eagles soaring high in the sky and seals bobbing in the sea.

Argyll is fantastic for walkers and climbers with many hill and mountain ranges within the area. For cycling enthusiasts, there are miles of forestry tracks to explore. Coastal walks provide great bird watching opportunities, places to launch a canoe/kayak or try your hand at a spot of sea fishing. There are a number of local golf courses within easy reach. This apartment has a fantastic central position within Oban and Argyll, making it a great holiday location. Beach 2 miles. Shop 300 yards, pub and restaurant 400 yards.

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.
