  • “In many many ways, the cottage was absolutely perfect.”

    We loved the retro vibe and the views were spectacular. Everything was scrupulously clean and extremely comfortable - ideal for a relaxing break, with only a couple of quibbles. (1)The cooker was not entirely user friendly. We had particular problems with the gas grill, which, when in use, caused the cooker knobs to become unbearably hot and impossible to handle. (2) The bathroom was clean and spacious, but the lack of a walk-in shower caused problems for an elderly member of our group. Also, ...

    We loved the retro vibe and the views were spectacular. Everything was scrupulously clean and extremely comfortable - ideal for a relaxing break, with only a couple of quibbles. (1)The cooker was not entirely user friendly. We had particular problems with the gas grill, which, when in use, caused the cooker knobs to become unbearably hot and impossible to handle. (2) The bathroom was clean and spacious, but the lack of a walk-in shower caused problems for an elderly member of our group. Also, as a party of five, we would have appreciated, if not a second bathroom, then at least a second toilet. Of course, we were aware of the facilities when we booked, but none the less it might be something to consider for the future. But perhaps the greatest inconvenience was the very inadequate water supply, which made it impossible to have a shower and difficult to fill the kettle.

The property

A cosy and comfortable first floor apartment set close to the centre of Oban town.

Wonderfully located on the harbour front, this apartment is ideal for families or friends wishing for a relaxed holiday in one of the most beautiful parts of Scotland.

The apartment boasts three bedrooms and a kitchen with dining area, which looks onto the rear courtyard.

The jewel of this apartment is the spacious sitting room with open fire, dining area and a large picture window with a stunning view over the harbour towards the Isle of Mull.

The balcony allows you to relax and enjoy a cold drink, whilst admiring the sunsets.

The town of Oban is perfectly placed to explore the west coast of Scotland, from where you can take a ferry to explore the Inner Hebrides, or you may prefer to walk or cycle in the surrounding hills and mountains.

Alternatively, explore Oban itself with its many shops, cafes and bars.

Slightly further afield is the Cruachan Power Station, where you can take a tour inside a mountain.

The renowned Arduaine Gardens are well worth a visit to see how the Gulf Stream produces a collection of beautiful plants.

A welcoming apartment with something to suit everyone, whatever the season.
