Luing is a small Hebridean island located close to the shores of Seil and Easdale islands south of Oban, and is reached by crossing the Bridge over the Atlantic and from there a short car ferry passage of 5 minutes into a land time has left still. Luing is situated on the Firth of Lorne, 18 miles south of Oban and is easily reached by a fast and regular car ferry across the Cuan sound (journey time 5 minutes and costs £8 car and £2 passenger return). The Island is 7 miles long by 2 miles wide and has a population of around 190.There are ample opportunities of having a night out on neighbouring Seil! A very quiet spot, the area provides opportunities for hill and coastal walking, sea - fishing, wind- surfing, cycling, boat trips to neighbouring islands and generally having a relaxing time. There is a small local beach of black sand and gravel. The two iron age forts and 12th. century ancient chapel are well worth visiting.The wildlife is abundant and the sea views magnificent!

The Scotland region

Take a walk on the dark side and visit one of Scotland¬s undiscovered slate islands. Situated on the Inner Hebridean Island of Luing, Argyll near Oban, Scotland, in the heart of the slate mining Conservation Village of Cullipool and a short distance from the sea, Creagard Country Cottage commands magnificent views over the Firth of Lorne to the dramatic coastline of the Isle of Mull, making it the ideal destination for a luxury self catering holiday cottage vacation rental.Take a walk back to the time of your ancestors. Facing the mountains of Mull and surrounded by the majestic Firth of Lorne and turbulent tidal forces flowing up the Sounds of Luing and Shuna through the Cuan Sound and Fladda, Luing is an invigorating location with an equally dynamic and lively population of 190 persons. The inhabitants come from all walks of life; some are hard working, some less so, and the mix gives the island a unique combination of interesting local characters, enterprising incomers and others who are beyond description other than to say Luing would be all the poorer without them!Located in the Highlands and islands of Argyll, within easy reach of Oban, Mull, Lochgilphead, Seil, Cuan, Easdale, Kilmartin Glen, Ben Nevis & Fort William, this Scottish Country Cottage is ideally placed for hill and coastal walking, horse riding on the mainland, boating, cycling, windsurfing, canoeing & bird watching. Cycles are available for hire. The wildlife is abundant with wild goats, seals, otters, porpoises & deer. There is a local museum and coffee shop where you can enjoy evening meals and Perfect spot for your Highland wedding and honeymoon in Scotland!The weather is relatively mild being in the Gulf stream or more accurately the North Atlantic Drift , and although not quite Caribbean, provides a change which is not boring. Being low lying and similar to Tiree, the rain clouds often scud overhead and drop their water on the mountains rather than the island itself.On neighbouring Easdale ,the famous stone skimming festival attracts entrants from worldwide and is open to all comers so come along and give it a try.

Central Scotland/Strathclyde

Argyll and Bute is one of the iconic tourist destinations alongside Edinburgh and London, and is a magnate for travelers and visitors seeking out the authentic Scotland complete with romantic castles, whiskey distilleries, fine local seafood, magnificent scenery and unbelievable sunsets.Best time to visit is from early April up to the end of September when the days are longer and the weather more kindly.
