Cottage in Argyll and Bute, Schottland
HOLIDAY_HOME: 14889 / SPPW
This beautifully renovated, detached, single-storey holiday cottage enjoys an idyllic location on the shores of Loch Etive. Extremely well furnished and equipped it has direct access onto the beach and boasts stunning views across the loch to the mountains beyond. The bustling Victorian town of Oban known as the ‘Gateway to the Highlands’ is just 12 miles away and offers shops, bars, seafood restaurants, a cinema and leisure centre. Whisky lovers can visit the Oban Distillery, and for children, a trip to the Scottish Sea Life Sanctuary to see the baby seals is a lovely day out. Regular boat trips leave the busy harbour bound for the Inner Hebridean Islands, including Mull, Iona and the Treshnish Isles with their comical puffins. Enjoy leisurely forest walks, horseriding, fishing, sailing, diving and golf, or for the more adventurous, Glen Nevis, one of the Highland’s most famous glens and the location of scenes from Harry Potter and Braveheart, is only a short drive and offers stunning scenery and bracing walks. Explore famous castles, historical sites and mature gardens. Visit Bonawe Iron Works, Cruachan Hollow Mountain or the Inveraray Jail. The abundant wildlife includes porpoises, dolphins, basking sharks, otters, deer and a wealth of seabirds. Glencoe and Fort William are easily accessible by car and offer popular climbing, skiing and mountain biking. All in all this is an ideal base for enjoying the pleasures of the great outdoors or just savouring the spectacular scenery of the Western Highlands. Shop and pub 1 mile.
