Description

Situated in the heart of Connel, 6 miles north of Oban on the shores of Loch Etive, Grove House offers superb detached accommodation in a village setting. The adjacent owners have tastefully decorated all of the bedrooms and bathrooms with a contemporary bias, and the bedrooms are equipped with televisions, DVD players and hairdryers.
Within walking distance of Grove House are three restaurants and three bars, a convenience store, and a railway station. You are yards away from the beautiful Loch Etive and the amazing natural attraction of the Falls of Lora, a tidal race underneath the Connel Bridge.
Nearby attractions within a 5-minute drive are Dunstaffnage Castle and the Ocean Explorer Centre in the village of Dunbeg, which also has a very popular Garden Centre with a café. Across the Connel Bridge, a 10-minute drive takes you to the village of Benderloch, with its famous grocery store, cafés, Tralee Beach, Ben Lora woodland walks and easy access onto National Cycle Route 78, which stretches all the way from Oban to Fort William.
Oban, just 10 minutes’ drive, is a bustling west coast harbour town, and has lots going on for the visitor at any time of the year. It is known as the ‘Gateway to the Isles’, with ferries leaving daily to many islands, such as Mull, Iona, Staffa, Lismore. In keeping with its reputation as the Seafood Capital of Scotland, there are some excellent restaurants, cafés and pubs.
Inveraray, the ancient capital of Argyll, with its castle and jail, is a fun day out for the family. A trip to the Isle of Seil, over the ‘Bridge over the Atlantic’ and a fast fun boat trip viewing whirlpools and wildlife, is another day out for family fun!
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 or catch the Harry Potter train. Beach 4 miles. Shop 400 yards, pub 500 yards and restaurant 100 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.
