About this location
The Argyll and Bute region
Argyll is one of the most beautiful areas in Scotland. A landscape that changes all the time with the season and the light.
From mid-Argyll with its pre-historic standing stones, its ancient farm lands and string of lochs and inlets to North Argyll where the mountains take over from the hills and the sea and lochs are all around us, the area has so much to take in.
Oban is a delightful bustling fishing port and known as the 'gateway to the isles'. As well as being a lovely place in itself, it's a great base for discovering the local area: day trips to Mull and Iona are easily organised from the ferry terminal. The isle of Seil is a half hour drive to the south and can be accessed by car over the 'Bridge over the Atlantic'. To the north is Connel and the Falls of Lora which run accross the bottom of Loch Etive.
The town itslef has many interesting local shops, its own distillery, great sea food reastaurants and access to all sorts of activities such as boat trips round the local islands, climbing, walking, canoeing, sea and fresh-water fishing, sailing.

"very comfortable and cosy house"
Very, clean, comfortable and cosy house within easy walking distance of the centre of Oban. The house is fully equipped, you don't need to bring a thing! Water pressure in the shower is not brill… More
I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for bringing the water pressure in the shower to my attention. As the weather has been cold we have been turning the water off when the house is not occupied and I suspect it has not been turned back on fully before your arrival as the shower is normally fine. All the best, Anne

Hi. I confirmed your visit as I thought you were the relative of a guest who stayed last week, because I knew that a brother in law was also staying, but this is the wrong property and I would not like the correct property to miss your lovely review. Anne
