Further details indoors

The large dining table can comfortably seat 10/12 adults) but there is also a pine table and 6 chairs in the farmhouse kitchen - perfect for feeding the kids before the grown ups sit down in peace! With a traditional Esse the kitchen is always cosy and has all mod cons to make self catering easy.

SkyTV in the lounge and comfy leather sofas and chairs are great for relaxing and oak floors in the lounge and dining room mean you can focus on your holiday and not worry about crumbs on the carpet! Pets are welcome at Cologin and there is a large porch to keep wet dogs, muddy boots and outdoor clothes out of the way. There are great views from all the bedrooms and the large BBQ and garden furniture make summer meals on the patio a real treat. Not having to drive to get to a good local pub (especially one renowned for real ale and good food) is an added benefit . There's a lovely playpark too just beyond The Barn and access to waymarked forestry commission walks in Cologin Forest in the hills above the farm.

The Central Scotland/Strathclyde region

Oban in the West Highlands of Scotland has been known for years as the 'Gateway to the Isles'. It certainly boasts a busy harbour with ferries serving the Inner and Outer Hebridean islands and the town is famous too for its malt whisky distillery which sits beneath another famous landmark - McCaig's Tower (modelled on the Collisseum in Rome) - worth the steep climb to enjoy the fantastic west coast sunsets from its stone arched windows. The seas off Oban provide world class sailing, kayaking and scuba diving and there are plenty of marine trips and activities for visitors. Although part of the Highlands, Oban is close enough to the central belt to be easily accessible and its reputation as one of the most popular visitor destinations in Scotland was first gained in the days of Queen Victoria! Today, it is a vibrant seaside town boasting fantastic restaurants (often specialising in seafood and shellfish), stunning scenery and friendly locals.

Oban

If you have kids a trip to the Sealife Centre at nearby Barcaldine is a great day out. Children also like getting on the water and Calmac offer a variety of day cruises from their ferry hub in Oban. There are also marine wildlife trips to see dolphins, basking sharks and whales and you can fish anywhere on the seashore (no permit necessary) and catch something for your tea. The rivers are teaming with salmon and trout and there is plenty of wildlife on shore to observe - from red deer to pinemartens. McCaig's Tower and Pulpit Hill in Oban offer spectacular views out over Oban Bay and beyond to the island of Kerrera, Mull and Iona. A trip to any of these islands is a must on any holiday. Iona is the 'cradle of Christianity' and the abbey is a magical place to visit. Staffa inspired Mendellsohn's great Hebridean Overture and artists across the centuries have drawn inspiration from the stunning scenery that is all around.

"In need of a good clean!"

We stayed at Cologin Farmhouse during the October half term 2012. The location is lovely, quiet and picturesque and the farmhouse is a very good size and layout.My main concern was the cleanliness. … More

Thank you for your feedback - the farmhouse is due for some internal decoration this winter after a very busy summer season. The seats are already booked in for recovering and the dining room rug has been sent away for a professional clean. We have got to the bottom of the blocked drain from the dishwasher and I am very sorry if this caused any inconvenience during your 3 night stay. I am glad your children enjoyed their stay - the house is always very popular with young families.

Thank you so much for suggesting an outside light for the patio - not being smokers ourselves we forget that folk still use the patio during the winter months to light up! We will add one when we close for our annual refurbishment (loads of TLC I promise). I am glad you enjoyed your stay and that you managed to spend some time in the Barn Bar - it was extremely busy all weekend!
