Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
The apartment provides modern, comfortable accommodation perched high on a hillside overlooking Craobh Haven Marina, the entrance to the Gulf of Corrievreckan (the third biggest whirlpool in the world) and the Firth of Lorn and its many islands.
The views are breathtaking and you may choose simply to spend your holiday relaxing. For the more active, there's an endless choice of wonderful walks in the area or you can go fishing, participate in the many watersports on offer locally, go riding, explore the archaeological sites in Kilmartin Glen, wander round the beautiful National Trust for Scotland Arduaine Garden, famous for its rhododendrons, azaleas and magnolias (only 1 mile away) or take a ferry from Oban (the Gateway to the Isles) and explore some of the islands.
There's a choice of restaurants and pubs in the area, two within walking distance, if you prefer not to drive.
Although the apartment doesn't have any special aids, it is user friendly for wheelchair users and can be easily accessed from the drive without having to negotiate any steps.

The Central Scotland/Strathclyde region
Argyll and Bute is renowned for its beautiful scenery with its stunning coastline dotted with islands. Normally thought to be warmer and wetter than the east of Scotland, we have enjoyed a better summer in 2012 than almost the whole of the rest of the UK.
The famous National Trust for Scotland Arduaine Garden (just a mile away) is a must for garden lovers, as is Kilmartin Glen for those interested in the history of Scotland and archaeology. The clear waters make the area a haven for subaqua divers and there's an endless choice of walks both close at hand and a little further afield. Watersports are available at nearby Craobh Haven Marina from where you can also take a boat trip through the whirlpools of Corrievreckan and look out for the rare White Tailed Eagle and other wildlife. Horse riding is available at nearby Lunga Estate and the Sealife Centre at Barcaldine is ideal for a family visit. A drive down the Mull of Kintyre is well worth doing and ferries leave from here to the beautiful little island of Gigha and to Islay.
The nearby villages of Ardfern and Kilmelford have small village shops where essentials can be purchased.
Oban is the main shopping centre and is a pleasant half hour drive from Traighuaine. It has a selection of supermarkets and, whilst it doesn't boast any of the large chain stores, it has a good selection of shops and is an attractive, seaside town well worth visiting.
Oban hosts the Provincial Mod every year, which celebrates the Gaelic language, music and culture. The well known Oban Games are held every year in August. For something unique, the World Stone Skimming Championship, which attracts in the region of 300 competitors, is held annually on the tiny island of Easdale, which once produced slate.
