Description

Grannda Mhor is located in Arduaine, a pretty and popular west Highland ribbon coastal settlement with a few houses arranged around a sheltered bay. Nestled in an area of great natural scenic beauty between Oban and Lochgilphead, the semi-detached house enjoys a fine, prominent position set back and raised from the old coastal road from where there are spectacular views south and west over Asknish Bay to Shuna, Luing, Scarba and the northern end of Jura. Offering comfort, peace and relaxation, Grannda Mhor is an ideal base for holidays in Argyll at any time of year.
The gardens and immediate surrounding area are host to a wide range of fauna including red squirrels, pine martens, and otters playing in the bay; there are also numerous bird species including occasional sightings of golden eagles and sea eagles over the bay. A few hundred yards north of Grannda Mhor are the famous Arduaine Gardens and a hotel with a bistro and formal restaurant with incredible views to the west. The bay at Arduaine has its own jetty for you to launch your RIB or kayaks, and is on the west coast Sea Kayak Trail. Just 2½ miles south of Grannda Mhor is Craobh Haven, a popular holiday and sailing village with berths for up to 250 crafts. It has a harbourmaster, marina office and store, and the stunning views take in the islands of Shuna, Seil and Luing, as well as many better-known islands from Jura in the south to the Highlands of Mull in the north. Running regularly from here are a number of excellent wildlife cruises which also take in the famous Gulf of Corryvreckan with the largest whirlpool in the world. Oban, 19 miles, is 25 minutes’ drive north along the A816 coastal road and is a picturesque, bustling harbour town with an array of splendid shops and restaurants to experience. Known as the ‘Seafood Capital of Scotland’, it does not disappoint. With fishing boats in the bay, and regular ferries leaving for the Inner and Outer Hebrides, one visit will never be enough. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 1 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.
