Tigh Ban Lek is an imaginatively conceived and individually designed purpose-built house in distinctive Swiss Chalet style, having been built from stone and substantial natural timbers.

The design award winning house was built in the late 1990s and has been carefully incorporated into the hillside and oriented entirely to maximise on the island views and seascapes extending over 30 miles to the south and west. This is an extremely comfortable, spacious and sophisticated holiday home.

Accommodation is laid out over two floors: an entrance vestibule leads to the reception hall and onto ground floor accommodation of two bedrooms. The ground floor also has an under stairs storage cupboard and WC/utility room. The master bedroom features an ensuite bathroom with jacuzzi tub and two shower heads over the bath utilising power showers.

Both bedrooms have French doors out to the garden and take in the stunning views. Both en-suite bathrooms have heated tiled floors.

The spacious and bright open plan first floor consists of a neatly fitted and well equipped galley style kitchen, dining room and sitting room with French doors to the large balcony. The furniture comprises a three seater sofa, which can be converted into a full double sofa bed, a two seater sofa and two easy chairs. There is a gas fire in the corner of the living room, a TV with Sky freesat, integrated DVD player and stereo system with MP3 and ipod connection. A selection of books, DVDs, audio cds and games are supplied. Wifi is available and the oak dining table allows for six spacious settings.

The Argyll and Bute region

There is a wealth of activities all within a short distance from the cottage. Argyll is one of the most beautiful areas of Scotland offering everything from beaches, lochs, history, walking and stunning scenery. The cottage is furnished in a modern and comfortable style providing spacious accommodation for up to 6 people. Everything is provided at Tigh Ban Lek for you to enjoy a relaxing holiday in a wonderful location.

The choice of walks from the area are numerous. A steep climb of less than 15 minutes from the back door (depending upon how fit you are!) brings you to a stunning view. A little further afield, there is a network of forestry walks of varying distances and, for the less energetic, a gentle stroll along the towpath of the Crinan Canal.

"Great Location"

Wonderful location overlooking Loch-well equipped every need covered nice touch with the welcome pack -homemade shortbread lovely. Cottage needs a general makeover -looking tired in exterior decor and hard to reach interior.

Sorry to hear you feel the cottage needs a makeover. The stone exterior cannot be modified and we recently decorated the interior, including those hard to reach high sections in the lounge/dining area.

"Tigh Ban Lek"

Fabulous location with stunning panoramic views .Even the bedrooms (located downstairs) had superb views. Very warm during our long weekend as it is well insulated and well heated. Very well equipped and definitely worth a return trip.

We are really glad you enjoyed your break at Tigh Ban Lek.

"Fantastic House, good location and perfect peace and quiet"

Stayed at Tigh Ban Lek for a few days as a short break to get away from things. It was great. The house had everything we needed and was in a great setting - the views are just amazing and it was so quiet. Travelled a fair amount in Scotland and this was one of the best places we've ever stayed, definitely highly recommended!

Thank you very much for your review, glad you enjoyed your time at Tigh Ban Lek
