Description

This comfortable spacious holiday home has a large open plan living/dining room with a wood burner and a stunning vaulted ceiling, and with a galleried reading area above. The separate kitchen with breakfast area and the large conservatory opening onto the lawned garden, ensures that there is space for everyone to be together or have time alone. Situated close to the village of Benderloch, located on a working croft, specialising in poultry and plants and eco-living, it is an ideal base for friends and families to relax and enjoy the natural surroundings and rural life. Guests will enjoy the freedom and varied nature of the garden which has a large lawned area, shrubs, flower beds and a small wildlife pond.
Kintaline House is on the outskirts of Benderloch, which is a small coastal village, just 8 miles from Oban, and located near to Loch Creran to the north east and Loch Etive to the south west and is between Oban and Glencoe. Benderloch has a village shop and post office (the famous pink shop), country and camping store with fuel, children’s playground, café and book store, restaurant and fish and chip shop. There are some lovely walks, through woodland to the nearby sandy beach at Tralee Bay and a steep woodland walk to the summit of nearby Beinn Lora with stunning views. The popular cycle path between Oban to Fort William runs through Benderloch, along the coast and through woodlands and is easy walking.
Connel Village, about 3 miles away, is a thriving community offering a broad range of facilities including a post office/village shop, railway station, bus routes, restaurants and pubs. Attractions in Connel are Ardchattan Priory and the amazing natural attraction of the Falls of Lora, a tidal race underneath the Connel Bridge. Dunbeg, a further 2 miles towards Oban, houses the popular attractions of Dunstaffnage Castle and the Ocean Explorer Centre, and just 7½ miles to the south west is the bustling port of Oban, boasting excellent transport links and a good range of shops, supermarkets, bars, cafés, restaurants, and leisure facilities.

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.
