The spectacular alpine views you get of Loch Etive, Ben Cruachan and the surrounding mountains from all our properties are second to none.

Stay at one of our five quiet self catering properties on the shores of Loch Etive, near Oban, Argyll.  You have the choice of a cottage style apartment, 3 brand new luxury wooden cabins or a 3 bedroom detached cottage.  All with enclosed gardens and patios.  We take pets in 3 of our properties.  There is a seemingly endless list of things for you and your family to do in the area that offers something for everyone.  Choosing Taynuilt (12 miles (19km) 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 (4.8km) of the house. The high tops of Glen Coe are just 10 miles (16km) 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 (48 km) routes not for the faint hearted.  Bikes can be rented locally.

baby roe deer taken in front of bays and bens holiday lets and cottages airds bay taynuilt nr oban, argyll 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 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 guided boat trips to see seals and puffins. Go walking in the hills, bag a Munro!  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".
