Description

This welcoming second floor holiday apartment has been equipped and furnished with care, to cater perfectly for your ideal coastal town break. Situated on Argyll Street, just off the main street in Oban, you can enjoy the hustle and bustle of town life, whilst being completely separate in your own peaceful apartment. Harbour Haven is close to all shopping, entertainments, restaurants, and all sailing, rail, ferry and coach terminals. A freshly renovated airy apartment, it’s the ideal size for a couple or small group wishing to enjoy a coastal town centre break, and is made cosy by convenient gas heating. It has an airy welcoming living area with large window enjoying a partial view of Oban Harbour and a spacious modern kitchen/diner, fully equipped for easy self-catering. There are two welcoming double bedrooms with lovely comfy beds, served by an adjacent shower room.

A bustling west coast harbour town, Oban has lots going on for the visitor at any time of the year. Central for touring Argyll, and known as the “Gateway to the Isles”, with ferries leaving daily to many of the islands, such as Mull, Iona, Staffa, Lismore. Loads of outdoor sports to enjoy locally, with a kayaking centre just yards away, which launches into Oban Bay, directly in front of the apartment. In keeping with its reputation as the Seafood Capital of Scotland, there are some excellent restaurants, cafés and pubs nearby, for relaxing after a pleasant day out exploring all the wonderful scenery and interesting attractions which Argyll has to offer.

There is a lovely sandy beach at Ganavan, just two miles’ drive 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, or catch the steam train to Mallaig, or take a visit to Inveraray to enjoy the Castle or infamous Jail.

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.
