    “Great location, scenery spectacular, very quiet location.”

    There are houses either side of the property but not intrusive. On entering house it was lovely and warm which was very welcoming. As in the details, stairs are very steep and would not be suitable for those people with limited mobility or unstable on their feet. Plenty of hot water.

    There are houses either side of the property but not intrusive. On entering house it was lovely and warm which was very welcoming. As in the details, stairs are very steep and would not be suitable for those people with limited mobility or unstable on their feet. Plenty of hot water. Improvements would be to cut back the trees at the front of the house to engage with the views more for the summer months while sitting on the decking area, also the back entrance to the property. Plenty of utensils in kitchen, style of property basic but adequate. Main bedroom above kitchen, great views and very comfortable. There are some minor upgrading that could be done for the cottage as with anywhere. Small COOP at end of drive for those essentials, however for a weeks stay would suggest you either bring your own or go to Oban for Lidls, Farm Food,s M&S, Tesco, Aldi. The Pier Hotel is just down the lane for drinks was ideal, didn't try the food, but menu looked enticing, seafood orientated. There is one further Airds Hotel offering meals in the village, didn't try, and there is also Creagan about 10 minutes drive away.

Situated in the pretty coastal village of Port Appin, resting in the Scottish Highlands, is this delightful, detached stone cottage.

Delight in the brightly decorated rooms, with plenty of quality, but quirky furniture which gives the rooms a wealth of character and a welcoming feeling the moment you walk through the door.

Step into the open-plan country-style kitchen/diner, with all modern appliances on-hand to help you cook up a storm for the whole family.

Choose from two dining areas, one in the kitchen, or in the open-plan lounge to enjoy your lovingly prepared meals over a glass of chilled wine.

The property benefits from one ground floor twin bedrooms, accessed via the lovely conservatory and would be ideal for those with limited mobility, as it is supported by a ground floor family bathroom.

About the location

PORT APPIN

Oban 19 miles.

Port Appin is a picturesque coastal village with excellent local facilities, and many places of interest nearby. It is an outdoor enthusiast's paradise, as the area is rich in beautiful walks, varied cycle tracks and opportunities for a variety of watersports. The village is not only stunningly pretty, but also boasts two award-winning hotels, a village shop/Post Office, a bicycle hire shop and fishing from the jetty. From the small jetty, a 5 minute ferry ride will take you across the Lynn of Lorn to the unspoilt island of Lismore, the most accessible of the Argyll islands, and a beautiful tranquil place steeped in history with ruined castles and an Iron Age Broch. The bustling town of Oban is a short drive to the south and just 29 miles north is Fort William with Ben Nevis - the largest mountain in Britain; both places are well worth a visit!
