Description

Westbay View is located directly on the esplanade and has unobstructed views over Oban Bay, the island of Kerrera and the Isle of Mull on the West Coast of Scotland. This second floor apartment is furnished and equipped to a very good standard, it has a spacious living area with window seat and has a much coveted private parking space for guests. With its sea frontage, Westbay View catches the sun all day long.
Oban, with its bustling harbour and large variety of restaurants and shops, is known as both the ’Seafood capital of Scotland’ and as ’Gateway to the Isles’. You can take a short ferry trip from the pier to one of the inner isles, including Mull and Iona, where an abundance of birds and wildlife can be spotted, or take a stroll to Ganavan beach on the edge of town. McCaig’s Tower is a few hundred yards away as are shops, whilst pubs are within 20 yards. A must visit is the local chocolate factory just along the esplanade and for those looking to explore further afield Glencoe, Ben Nevis, Inveraray, the Crinan Canal and Loch Lomond are easily accessed. Buses, trains and taxis are literally on your doorstep. Beach 2 miles. Shop 250 yards, pub 20 yards, restaurant 300 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.
