Description

Inveree is a historic villa in a raised position overlooking Oban and its picturesque harbour. Renovated in 2019-20 to a high standard, Inveree is a perfect holiday home for a week or two to explore this magical part of Scotland and the nearby islands. Equally it works well for a shorter stop en-route to or from the Outer Hebrides.
You’re within walking distance of everything in Oban, including many restaurants, cafés, pubs, galleries, viewpoints, shops and of course a distillery. There are lovely walks from the front door, following the bay in one direction towards the Kerrera ferry and in the other through Oban and to Dunollie Castle. A little further afield, you can go north and explore towards Appin and Castle Stalker. Glencoe and Fort William are only an hour’s drive north from Inveree too and to the east is Inveraray complete with the truly magnificent castle. To the south, the coastline is unspoilt with views of the islands almost a constant. Kilmartin Glen is a highlight and beyond is the spectacular Kintyre Peninsula, and more of those famous distilleries waiting to be explored. Ferries sail from Oban and you can easily hop on and off during the summer, visiting nearby islands including Mull and Iona.
The property itself is impressive with many characterful features. Its situation is unrivalled, slightly elevated above the harbour. Entering the property, you have a choice or two reception rooms, both with wonderful views. To the rear of the house there’s an excellently designed and finished kitchen complete with island hob and oven. To one side of the kitchen is the dining room/conservatory and the other side a utility room with downstairs toilet. The utility room has access to the rear garden, which is lawned in part, and enclosed, but is very steep so young children need to be watched when they’re exploring! Back inside, the staircase winds round from the front of the house and splits to access the front or rear upper rooms. To the rear of the first floor there’s a large bathroom with free standing bath, a separate shower room and third bedroom, a twin room. The upper front of the house has two large double bedrooms with the best views in the house, arguably up there with the best in Oban. Beach 2¾ miles. Shop ½ mile, pub and restaurant 500 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.
