Oban is 12 miles to the west of us and is a thriving small town with a extensive choice of shops, supermarkets, hotels and restaurants. It is of course the Gateway to the Isles so there is a large number of ferry routes to the islands to choose from as well as many small boat day trips.
Most people travel up by car but we do have a number of visitors that come up by rail. We are just a mile from the railway station and We can most times be around to pick you up. A lot of our visitors choose to hire a car as the buses and trains although regular do not run as often as in a city! It is easier if you are hiring a car to travel straight through to Oban on the train and pick your car up, then drive back to Taynuilt.
I was lucky enough the other day to get this photo while out kayaking. It shows all our letting properties. Bottom right is our house, with Loch Etive View apartment on the first floor. Left of this the first mobile home is Loch View and next along is Mountain View. At the very top left the house with the red roof is Brolas and next to it is Glen View mobile home. The views from all are stunning.

Cyclists have miles of quiet country road to explore, including a brand new cycle route from Oban to Fort William with large sections of free of motor traffic. A lot of this route is now complete, click here and check for details.
