The Central Scotland/Strathclyde region

The 'Centre of Everywhere but the Middle of Nowhere' is the best way to describe The Raven's location. With easy access to the stunning and picturesque Central Highlands and West Coast of Scotland. Very mountainous with deep lochs and steep glens. Although the wilderness is all around you the bustle of interesting Scottish towns and cities are within an easy commute by car, rail and bus.


Remembering that a short commute will take you to a number of visitor attractions including castles, museums, galleries, distilleries, restaurants, pubs and much much more. The towns of Oban, Fort William, Perth, Pitlochry and Stirling are all approximately 1 hours drive whilst Edinburgh and Glasgow are approximately 1.5 hours.
