Set back in a small hamlet 2 miles from Benderloch, 12 miles from Oban Grove Cottage is a haven of peace and tranquillity which enjoys wonderful views of the fields, mountains beyond and of course the beautiful and breath taking Barcaldine Forest which we are surrounded by. Literally 20 steps from the front garden takes you into one of Argyll's' breath taking forests – Baracaldine Forest. Barcaldine Forest area sits on the seaboard of North Argyll overlooking the Firth of Lorne, with views to the Morvern penninsula, the Isles of Mull and Lismore. Cycle routes and footpaths allow you to explore the forest with wonderful way marked walks and trails at Sutherland's Grove and Beinn Lora.

The spectacular surrounding area boasts many outdoor pursuits such as hill walking, cycling (bike hire can be delivered to the house), fishing, golfing and the Scottish Sea Life Sanctuary is only one mile from the house. Glencoe – a popular spot with walkers, winter sport enthusiasts and mountaineers is only a short drive. Oban, the popular west coast resort has excellent facilities such as distillery tours, cinema, leisure centre and a wide variety of shops, restaurants and pubs with evening entertainment. Oban known as 'The Gateway to the Islands' offers regular ferry services and day trips to the local islands such as Mull, Iona and Coll or one of the smaller boats can take you out to view the wonderful wildlife. For the more adventurous 'Seafari' trips on high speed boats is an experience of a lifetime and one you will never forget.

The house is attractively furnished, fresh and well maintained. Large garden to the front and rear to relax and enjoy the views, private driveway for 2 cars. 2 double bedrooms and one twin with a fold down bed for triple occupancy. Ample room in the double rooms for travel cots. Upstairs bathroom with bath, electric shower and an additional power shower cubicle. Downstairs toilet. Open plan sitting room/dining area.

"Amazing place near Oban"

Nous sommes venus à sept amis français, entre 23 et 30 ans chacun.
La maison est absolument magnifique, et ce pour un prix dérisoire. Les lits sont confortables et tout est absolument propre et bien équipé.
Nous avons fait des balades qui partent près de la maison et la ville d'Oban est à mois de 20 minutes en voiture.
Shirley la propriétaire a répondu à toutes nos questions et est très aimable!
Nous recommandons ce logement à tous, il est parfait pour séjourner quelques jours, dans une région magnifique!

"A holiday let so good I'm reluctant to tell you about it and thus find it fully booked next time!"

Sometimes the approach to booking doesn't pay off but for us it paid off bigtime. We wanted somewhere to stay in Oban itself but there was little left to choose from so we cast our net further afield and caught a gem. In a really peaceful location, not too remote but with no passing traffic, Grove Cottage cottage was ideally located for all that we wanted to do. And more. With a south facing garden and a lovely view we could have stopped there soaking up the sun all week (ok, we got lucky with the weather) but made the most of our time with lengthy walks in and around the area including mountains, forests, lochs and the seashore. With an abundance of wildlife and stunning views there was plenty to see. Apart from people. The area is so vast it easily absorbs the summer visitors and at times we walked for miles without passing the time of day with anyone. The area also has myriad cycle tracks and paths for those who prefer to explore a little more quickly. The cottage is extremely well equipped but on a couple of occasions we drove into Oban (a few miles away) to stock up on fresh food and to eat out. Shirley, the owner, was a pleasure to deal with, promptly replying to our queries by phone, text or e-mail. Thoroughly recommended, just save the odd week for us to be able to visit again!

So glad that you had such a lovely holiday at Grove Cottage. Holidaying on the West Coast really is so wonderful and we look forward to welcoming you back again and again!
