  • "What a lovely place to stay with our four legged boys."

    The fenced paddock for the dogs is a fantastic touch! Hosts were very approachable and outgoing and the surroundings were idylic. Oak Cottage was really nicely decorated and equipped, only negative would be the kitchen units, in need of some tlc. Other than that, a highly recommended cottage and location!

  • "Had a lovely week- the cottage had everything we needed-all very comfortable and easy to use."

    No washing machine however the offer to use one was there. So easy with the dog too- the paddock is an excellent addition. The kitchen seemed a little dated but has everything you need, all the equipment is new, plenty of cupboard space too. Excellent value for money

    Hi Lynda, many thanks for the feedback and kind review. We installed new kitchens in 5 of the other cottages and plan a new kitchen soon in Oak. We do feel the 3 bedroom cottage does offer great value for money and we will continue to upgrade as we go along. Happy to see you made good use of the paddock for your dog. Kind regards Anson and Jennie. Property Owner

The property

Nestled on the generous grounds of the owner's home, within a quadrant of quaint dwellings, rests this delightful holiday home, Oak Cottage.

Idyllically positioned in a rural setting, Oak Cottage is the perfect base for both families and friends alike looking for an adventure in Scotland.

A spacious gravelled driveway greets you upon arrival at the foot of this charming stone-built abode, making loading and unloading an easy task, and providing a lovely spot to meet likeminded holiday makers as you bask in the evening sun with a refreshing drink.

Stepping inside, be charmed by the traditional décor of the open-plan living space, thoughtfully laid-out with two sofas gathered around a warming electric fire, inviting you to kick off your shoes and unwind as you enjoy your favourite show on the Smart TV.

Gather your loved ones together around the dining table taking centre stage in the sociable space, and share a bottle of wine as the designated chef cooks up a storm in the galley-style kitchen, housing a range of modern amenities to assist with your self-catering needs.

When sleep calls, you're spoilt for choice between three bedrooms, a king-size, a queen-size and a twin, each featuring a neutral décor for a calming ambiance to rest your head.

In the morning, kickstart your day with a rejuvenating rinse in the spacious walk-in shower situated in the contemporary bathroom before stepping outside to join your guests for a steaming cup of coffee in the garden, planning your holiday itinerary.

Get better acquainted with your surroundings and take the short journey into the heart of Inveraray, home to the iconic attraction, Inveraray Castle, the ancestral home of the Duke of Argyll, where you can tour the stunning architecture of the Gothic castle, or explore the vibrant well-kept grounds, stretching over sixteen acres.

You'll find a host of local amenities in the centre of town, with traditional country pubs, quaint cafes and independent stores lining the streets, and with the 19th century Inveraray Jail open for exploration and the National Trust's Crarae Garden set a stone's throw away, there's plenty to see and do.

Outdoor adventurers will be delighted with a visit to the nearby village of Dalmally, where you can gaze at the Falls of Cruachan Waterfall as it cascades down Ben Cruachan, the highest point in Argyll and Bute, or tackle the challenging climb through jagged peaks and rocky ridges to the summit of the mountain, boasting far-reaching views across Oban and out to Mull beyond from the top.

Aboard the ferry from Tayvallich to the untamed island of Jura, one of the wildest places in Scotland, and home to the renowned Whisky, and sample the goods with a tour of the Isle of Jura Distillery, or marvel at the phenomenon of the Corryvreckan Whirlpool, the third largest whirlpool in the world.

For an unforgettable experience in Scotland, choose a stay at Oak Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.

About the location

INVERARAY

Lochgilphead 24 miles; Oban 37 miles;

Inveraray is the traditional county town of Argyll and was founded in 1745 by the Duke of Argyll. It sits on Loch Fyne and alongside the spectacular rebuilt Inveraray Castle. The town was designed to accommodate workers on the castle estate, a woollen mill and also fishermen in the booming herring industry. Many of the properties today are of great architectural significance and are protected. As well as the castle, the town today boasts many tourist attractions as well as an array of shops, restaurants and cafes. The infamous Courthouse and Jail, a floating museum converted from a former lightship. Visit the spectacular National Trust Crarae Gardens or attend the Highland Games. There is superb walking, cycling and fishing in the hills surrounding Inveraray and also the Cruachan Power Station, located inside a mountain. Oban is a pleasant drive, as is Kilmartin with its Neolithic stones. There is an abundance of attractions and all surrounded by amazing scenery.
