Description

Ideally located with direct access to the shores of Loch Lihnne, this apartment has magnificent views across the sea to the Island of Lismore and the Morven Hills. On the edge of the pretty fishing village of Port Appin, and half way between Fort William and Oban the cottage is a superb base for exploring the west coast of Scotland. Surrounded by breathtaking scenery this is a popular area with walkers and cyclists. There are regular passenger ferries from the village to the Island of Lismore, Castle Stalker is nearby and the cycle track from Glencoe to Oban can be reached by crossing the Jubilee Footbridge. Oban, a small bustling fishing town with an array of shops, bars and restaurants is only a ½-hour drive. From here, take a short ferry trip to Mull, Staffa or Iona, all with an abundance of wildlife. Visit Bonawe Iron Works, Cruachan Hollow Mountain, Oban Distillery, Inveraray Jail, or the Sea Life Centre. Glencoe and Fort William are easily accessible and offer walking, mountain biking, climbing and skiing. Take the Jacobite Steam Train from Fort William across the Glenfinnan Viaduct as depicted in the Harry Potter film, or ride the gondola up Anoch Mor Mountain.

There are also a variety of castles, gardens, and sites of historical interest to visit. Port Appin has a small village shop, post office and two small hotels with restaurants. Beach 20 miles.

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.
