The Cottage has a card operated pay-as-you-go electricity meter, which enables our guests to monitor and manage their own electricity consumption.

This self-catering cottage is perfect for couples or small families of all ages to enjoy the peaceful tranquillity in this beautiful remote place. The property sits in a large garden with lawns to the front and back of the property. Views extend over the whole of the Estate right down to Loch Tromlee. The surrounding fields have cows and sheep roaming and you can spot the occasional deer and hunting birds. There is plenty of space for parking.

The accommodation is ideal for those that want to spend their holidays walking, hiking, exploring, fishing, island hopping or simply relaxing in a very quiet and remote beauty spot.

The closest pub is in Kilchrenan, about two miles down the road but there are also two restaurants nearby that provide excellent opportunities for lunches and dinners.
Fishing, shooting and stalking can be undertaken at and around the Estate and in addition there are a large number of day trips that can be undertaken from the Estate and also from nearby Oban. The 'Gateway to the isles' offers great opportunities for island hopping, boat tours, sailing and kayaking, outdoor pursuits as i.e. golf. The historic Oban Distillery is offering guided tours. A local business offers outdoor pursuit courses for adults, teenagers and children that are well worth a look.

We are only about one hour drive away from two different ski resorts (Glencoe and Nevis Range) that offer lessons and full equipment hire.

Location description from owner

The Scotland region

The West Coast of Scotland, Argyll and the Oban area in particular have a wide variety of visitor attractions, from distilleries, castles and museums to an unspoilt natural environment, in which Ballimore Farm is situated.

Throughout the year Argyll plays host to a large number of Highland Games and a variety of events and festivals: the Cowal Highland Gathering, Tarbert Music Festival, Cowal Fest - Cowal Walking and Arts Festival, the Mull of Kintyre Music Festival and the Islay and Bute Jazz festivals to name but a few. The Seafood Festival in Tarbert, the Mull Rally, the Tiree Wave Classic and the West Highland Yachting Week in Oban are also very popular.

In July - August 2014 the Commonwealth Games take place in Glasgow, which is only a 2 hour drive South of the Farm, giving you the opportunity to visit some of those sporting events on a day out.

Oban is known as the 'Gateway to the Isles' as the town's south pier harbours the ferry terminal with regular ferry services to Mull, Coll, Tiree, Barra, South Uist, Colonsay, Lismore and Islay. From these islands you can travel further afield to Iona, Staffa and to many of the smaller less well known isles. There are many islands that make perfect day trip destinations from Oban and are very popular with our guests.

Kerrera is Oban's closest island neighbour and with a size of six and a half mile long it can be seen from most parts of the town. This island offers a lovely timber shack restaurant with its own ferry service and is the ideal place for a quiet walk or cycle. There are no shops on the island, but there are the well-preserved and wonderfully atmospheric remains of Gylen Castle.

Kilchrenan

In and around the area of Oban and Lorne there are a large variety of outdoor pursuits that can be undertaken and a number of companies offer a large selection of outdoor and adventure pursuits. From Canoeing and Kayaking, Gorge Walking or Coasteering to fishing, archery, stalking, golf and horse riding there are plenty of exciting activities to do!

In Scotland people have the 'right to roam', which means that you have the right to access most land and inland water including mountains, moorland, woods and forests, grassland, fields, rivers and lochs, coastal areas, most parks and open spaces, golf courses (to cross them); day and night, providing you do so responsibly. This makes it possible to walk just about anywhere and there is certainly plenty of opportunity to do so around our Estate.

During the summer months there are a number of Highland Games taking place in our area:
Helensburgh and Lomond Highland Games: Saturday, 7th June 2014
Lorne Highland Games (Oban): Sunday, 22nd June 2014
Luss Highland Games: Saturday, 5th July 2014
Taynuilt Highland Games: Saturday, 19th July 2014
Inveraray Highland Games: Tuesday, 22nd July 2014
Mull Highland Games: Thursday, 24th July 2014
Killin Highland Games: Wednesday, 6th August 2014
Argyllshire Gathering (Oban): Thursday, 28th August 2014
