  • "Stunningly beautiful location and accommodation."

    Fully equipped with all your everyday needs. No hidden extras for using logs etc. Located right on the pier with mountain and loch views. We would highly recommend to friends and family. The host could not be more amenable. Thank you so much for a great week, Frank, Sunny & Mia

    The accommodation is extremely well resourced and provides a very comfortable and cosy home from home. The access to the private beach and Loch was fantastic for swimming and kayaking. Many thanks to the owners for providing the ideal and perfect holiday home.

    Kitchen well equipped. Great view of surrounding area.

    Thanks for the note. We'd really appreciate it if could provide additional detail/context on where are scores aren't quite as good as we have received previously. We are always looking for ways to improve our guests experiences so understanding where things haven't quite met expectations is key to this continuous improvement. Many thanks Maria & Mark Property Owner

  • "Had a lovely week at Pier North this July."

    The weather wasn't great but was still a great place to retreat to when the rain got too much! The views are wonderful and you really could sit for hours waiting for those elusive otters, and enjoying the quiet and the wildlife. A really comfortable house with lots of creature comforts and considered decor and facilities. Would love to visit again, thank you.

    Hi Adrienne, thanks for your wonderful feedback. Sadly we can't influence otter activity or the weather but so pleased you enjoyed your stay and we'd love to welcome you back. Enjoy the rest of the summer. Maria & Mark Property Owner

  • "Great cottage with close by walks and easy cycling."

    The water was great being close by for paddle boarding too. Only thing I’d say was it’s a long way from Oban! But nothing u can do about it. The cottage was well stocked with all the kitchen items ud need. There was delicious fresh bread and milk on our arrival. No complaints whatsoever!! Loved it!

  • "The accommodation is great and we loved the upstairs area in particular."

    It has everything you could ever want and the coffee machine with pods was an added bonus! The views are stunning and we enjoyed the wee beach in front of the property. The only thing we felt could be improved was the width of the double beds as they were narrower than usual. Maybe see you next year! Thank you for a memorable holiday!

    Dear Fiona, thank you very much for your comments. We are so please that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you also for your feedback. We hope to have you back soon. Kind Regards, Mark and Maria Property Owner

  • "Potable tap water was an issue and a surprise on arrival, but well managed with a supply of bottled water."

    No dishwasher tabs on arrival but provided next day. The full compliment of appliances and gadgets was superb. General observation ; the large sink in the toilets left very little space for toiletries and lotions, no wall charging point for electric toothbrush.

    Thanks for your note and great feedback. On the charging points for the electric toothbrush these are inside the illuminated mirrors (top right corner of each). I would say they aren't the most obvious when you open the doors of the mirrors but the feedback is noted and and we will add a note into our welcome pack to help guests locate more easily in the future. Glad the rest was fine. Best Regards Maria & Mark Property Owner

The property

Kilmelford 2.1 miles.

Perched on the coast in Melfort near Kilmelford, Argyll & The Isles is this marvellous, end-terrace holiday home of Pier North.

Perfect for a family wanting to escape the clutches of busy, everyday life, Pier North is a wonderful retreat, enjoying access to the beautiful Loch Melfort and the quaintness of the Argyll countryside.

Upon entering the dwelling, be welcomed by three ground-floor bedrooms, with one consisting of a well-presented double and its en-suite bathroom, another being a double and, lastly, a single with a pull-out bed.

The bedrooms share access to a shower room, where you can wash off those sandy toes after a day packed with fun at Fearnach Bay.

Venture upstairs where a beautifully-decorated open-plan living space awaits, with a woodburning stove giving the room a welcoming glow.

The sitting area is where you can go to unwind after a day of walking or cycling, along with the private balcony, which provides views of the idyllic water and surroundings.

The kitchen is where the chef of the group can find all they need to make mouthwatering meals for all the family to savour.

Why not make use of North Pier's private mooring and take your boat out for a spin on Loch Melfort, before docking at Kilmelford, where you can purchase any essentials at the Kilmelford Stores or stop for a tasty treat at The Cuilfail's bistro.

For activities to partake in nearby, venture to Arduaine Garden to enjoy a peaceful stroll through the stunning mix of coastal and country scenery, or continue to Craobh Haven, with its Marina and watersports opportunities.

Travel a little further to Oban, a town that backs onto a golf club and its surrounding woodland, whilst hosting a waterfront with a range of attractions, including the Oban War & Peace Museum, access to the McCaig's Tower and Battery Hill, the renowned Oban Distillery and the Oban Chocolate Company.

Take your stay further and board a ferry from Oban's port to discover more of the beautiful Isles, including Barra and the Isle of Mull.

For a memorable time away with your loved ones, book a stay at North Pier.
