Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Tigh Beg Croft holiday cottage has to be one of the ultimate secluded Highland hideaways - there are no garden fences, only the open land and the sea to keep you in and amused. This classic 'get away from it all' location is set in some fifty acres of informal hill land and shore line giving you some spectacular walking country.
The croft and this part of the coastline were used in the 1968 filming of 'Ring of Bright Water' and more recently in the final scenes of 'Enigma', based on the Robert Harris thriller.
We feel very privileged to be able to offer Tigh Beg Croft as a holiday cottage and short break destination to enable our guests to totally unwind and relax. The croft has been recently renovated and completely refurbished to give you all the home comforts you would expect, making a great holiday destination at any time of year.
This special place is quietly situated at the sea entrance to Loch Feochan, with spectacular views down the 'Firth of Lorn', just three miles further down the glen from Lagnakeil lodges and yet only six miles from Oban with all its quality amenities, shops and restaurants.
Access is by a private track road of about one half miles with the final approach over unsurfaced track - perfect for four wheel drive, but not essential! You can also access Tigh Beg by sea.
A country pub is situated further up the glen offering fine home cooked food and ales with informal music nights during the season.

About this location
The Argyll and Bute region
Lagnakeil is only three miles from Oban, the unofficial capital of the West Highlands. Oban means "little bay" in the old Gaelic tongue. This picturesque harbour town with its many attractions, shopping facilities and fine eating establishments is ideal for those wishing to relax and explore. The town was first made popular in the time of Queen Victoria. She called it "one of the finest spots we have seen" and from the early 1800's visitors flocked to the place aboard the Comet steamship which linked Glasgow and Oban.
The Inner Hebrides consist of Kerrera, Lismore, Mull (with the small town of Tobermory which has recently become famous as Balamory) and the granite mountains of the Morvern peninsula and beyond them are Coll, Colonsay, Tiree and Iona, the island from which Columba spread Christianity to Britain and Europe. All are accessible to visitors through organised trips. Ferries to the islands are run by Caledonian Macbrayne.
Activities & Things to do
There are activities for all the family, ranging from an exciting boat trip courtesy of Sea.fari, a visit to Oban Distillery or any one of thirty spectacular gardens, to the Atlantis Leisure Centre with its water slides, the intriguing Oban War & Peace Museum, and the The Scottish SEA LIFE Sanctuary, a spectacular Aquarium with a busy rescue facility for abandoned seal pups. Over 50 natural marine displays with talks and feeding demonstrations throughout the day every day.
Discovering the surrounding countryside is fun, horse riding with one of Oban's many riding schools or perhaps take in a round of golf at Oban's 18 hole golf course. Oban's Tourist Information Centre in Argyll Square is a great place to find out what's going on in the area during your stay. Take to the clear waters around Oban and Lorn for sailing, sub-aqua diving, canoeing and sea angling or cruise to the head of Loch Etive for a unique experience.
Things to see
There's so much to see in the area, including Ardchattan Priory - Scotland's second oldest inhabited house, the Connel Bridge - a replica of the world-famous Forth Bridge, Europe's only seawater falls at the 'Falls of Lora', and the ruins of Dunollie Castle. Every bend in the road reveals a new treasure.
A Lagnakeil lodge is a great base for exploring where guests can roam freely are exciting, yet safe for children to explore. There are forestry trails and coastal walks as well as some fine "Munros" (Scottish mountains over 3,000 feet) for hill walkers.
