Make your base in the Scotland at one of our six quiet self catering properties on the shores of Loch Etive, near Oban, Argyll. This is one of the most stunning areas to visit in the West of Scotland, if not in the whole of Scotland. All properties have spectacular views of Loch Etive, Ben Cruachan and surrounding mountains.
You have the choice of a cottage style apartment, 2 brand new luxury wooden cabins, 2 or 3 bedroom detached cottage or 2 mobile homes, for your holiday let, all with enclosed gardens. We take pets in 4 of our properties but not in our 2 new wooden cabins. There is a seemingly endless list of things for you and your family to do in the area. Choosing Taynuilt (12 miles east of Oban) will be one of the best decisions you make for your Scottish holiday of a lifetime.
This is the perfect area for kayaking and canoeing with Loch Etive on your doorstep and the River Awe just a mile away. For the hillwalker there are 4 Munro summits within 3 miles of the house. The high tops of Glen Coe are just 10 miles away up Loch Etive by boat or 1 hour by car, with the Mammores and Ben Nevis tops also an hour away. There are many mountain bike tracks in the area from easy forest trails to full day 30 mile routes not for the faint hearted. Bikes can be rented locally.
This whole area is of outstanding natural beauty. The wildlife is probably second to none, eagles, ospreys, otters, basking sharks and deer to name but a few. This young Roe Deer was found 4 metres from one of our holiday lets.
Not only that, your ways of accessing the wildlife and landscape are endless. Oban or as it's known "The Gateway to the Isles" is just 12 miles away, where you can catch a ferry to numerous locations.
Hire kayaks or small boats to explore the coastline yourselves or go one of the many varied boat trips to see seals and puffins. Go walking in the hills, bag a Munro! If you want to do a more adventurous route or are just starting out, a qualified summer mountain guide (my husband!) can be arranged for you. Or if you fancy doing something different from normal go diving, horse riding, climbing, archery, wind surfing, cycling, gliding, golfing or sailing. Almost every outdoor activity can be done in this area. Or just have a relaxing stroll round one of the many gardens open to the public.
The area has many fine restaurants, tea rooms and pubs to enjoy our local produce in. Oban is rightly named the "Seafood Capital of Scotland".
There are many other activities and more than one company offering them. Check out our links page to get even more detail.
