The Argyll and Bute region

The sheer variety of interesting locations in the Highlands make touring around worthwhile - while the views and vistas on the way are a further bonus. Some attractions reflect the wealth of the area's heritage, from prehistoric cairns to stately homes and castles.

Others are specific natural features, impressive on their own account - for example, the Corrieshalloch Gorge near Ullapool or the Quirang on Skye. Then there are the wildlife attractions, which range from TV close-ups of nesting eagles to wildlife parks and rare breed farms. Whatever your preferences, variety is guaranteed.


Oban is just over 3 hours by train from Glasgow and approx 2.5 hours drive from Glasgow. It is an extremely popular destination as it is a gateway to the Isle of Mull.

Oban is justifiably known as the Gateway to the Isles. The town's south pier is the embarkation point for car ferries 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.

And it doesn't stop there. A short distance from the south pier along the Gallanach Road is the slipway for the Kerrera ferry, and a pleasant drive south allows you to take your car, or bike, over the Atlantic by bridge to the Island of Seil.

"Family of 12 Well Pleased"

Just as advertised. The home is extremely well located and fit our family of 6 adults and 6 children quite comfortably. Could not find anything that would prevent us from coming back.

Dear John, Thank you for writing a review, I am glad you enjoyed your stay at Blaven and we hope to welcome you back in the future. Kind regards Helen

"This house is WONDERFUL. No detail overlooked. Great base for Mull and Iona and lots in the area too"

.This is a great house, high on a hill overlooking Oban. The town has terrific restaurants - from the little seafood shack on the dock to Ee'usk for excellent food and service. The house has panoramic views looking out over Mull. Lots to do and see in the area (and the house is well-supplied w/ iniformation about the area). Highly recommend.
