Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Clan MacKenzie cottage is in a beautiful rural location, however it is also just 5 miles from the town of Oban and all its amenities. Clan Cottages have been awarded a 4 star Visit Scotland Quality Assurance award and were regional finalists in 2012 Visit Scotland Scottish Thistle Awards. Clan Cottages have also gained a Gold Green Tourism Award.
Our special one bedroom Clan MacKenzie cottage has a beautiful mezzanine lounge and stunning views overlooking Loch Nell. Downstairs there is a kitchen, bathroom with large walk in shower (there is no bath) , a double bedroom and a lounge with dining area.
The cottage has all mod cons including cooker, microwave, dishwasher, washer dryer, George Foreman grill, flat screen tv with Sky Freesat, and also wireless internet access.
We also provide washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, kitchen roll, toilet rolls, tin foil, hand wash and lotion etc.
Our cottages are on a single track road, just under a mile from the main road into Oban which takes about 6 minutes in the car.
The area around the cottages is perfect for walking and cycling. The single track road which starts right at the entrance to our cottages runs through Glen Lonan to Taynuilt. It is a very quiet and picturesque route and you will pass a herd of pedigree Highland cattle which graze on the road verges.
Going in the other direction through the Muasdale glen is also good for cycling though it is slightly more challenging with more hills. There are a number of off road forestry tracks for cycling in the area, one of which is only half a mile from our cottages.
Just across the road from our cottages in the field opposite is the Serpents Mound which has a chambered cairn at its head. If you visit the website www.megalithic.co.uk and type in Serpent Mound - Loch Nell you will be able to read all about it. There are quite a lot of archaeological features in the area including the iron age crannog which is in Loch Nell just off the shores of the cottages.
There is fishing available in Loch Nell and the River Nell for brown trout, sea trout and salmon.
