Location description from owner

The Scotland region

You will find Craobh Haven on the West Coast of Scotland. This is a region of Mountains, lochs and Islands wild with spectacular scenery yet only 100 miles from Glasgow.

An area of more prehistoric sites in a few square miles than anywhere else in Scotland. The first Scottish kings were crowned at Dunadd fort and St Columba landed on Iona in AD 563. 25 Munros are within 90 minutes including Ben Cruachan, Ben Lui and Glencoe. The town of Oban (20 miles) is known as the "Gateway to the Isles".

Craobh Haven

SUNSETS Craobh Haven and Ardfern are villages on either side of the Craignish peninsular an area of spectacular beauty with incredible sunsets seen from the Craobh Haven side.

WHIRLPOOLS AND WILDLIFE
The infamous Corrievreckan whirlpool between Scarba and Jura is the 3rd largest in the world and well worth a boat trip from Craobh Marina. Great for spotting an ubundance of wildlife including grey seals, golden eagles and red deer.

RIDING
The excellent Appaloosa riding centre is 5 minutes from the house

WATERSPORTS
Craobh Haven Watersports offers boat hire, canoeing, and sailing tuition.

WALKING
There are many wonderful local walks from the house where you can soak up the scenery, watch the wildlife or indulge your artistic tendencies with painting or photography as the light is extraordinary in this beautiful area.

GARDENS
Arduaine, and Crarae National Trust gardens to name a couple but there are many more.

ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITES
Mid Argyll is a truly fascinating area to stay as there are more prehistoric sites for it's size than anywhere else in Scotland. You can visit Dunadd fort where the first kings of Scotland were crowned in the Kilmartin Glen and where many archaeological sites are centred around the Kilmartin Museum of Ancient culture.

CASTLES
Travel on a little further to Inverary, with it's castle (home to the Duke and Duchess of Argyll) and also the historic jail.

OBAN
The gateway to the Isles of Mull (Duart Castle, Tobermory), Iona (St Columba landed here in 563 AD), Staffa (Fingal's cave) Coll, Tiree, Colonsay and the Outer Hebrides. Ferries and boat trips depart from this port.

FISHING
Sea fishing can be arranged from Oban and there is very good freshwater fishing on Loch Awe.

GOLF
Seil Island has a 9 hole course and Oban a more challenging 18 hole course with it's hilly situation.
