The property

Upper Brackendale is a lovely, first floor apartment settled in the village of Taynuilt in the peaceful Scottish countryside.

With a newly refurbished interior, this welcoming holiday apartment is perfect for families to call home for a while, with access to glorious scenery, including one of Scotland’s largest mountains, Ben Cruachan.

Follow a single lane track to find the apartment, situated above the owner’s home and enjoying a remote setting.

The open plan living space is where all can gather to discuss the days events, whether it be at the dining table over a home-cooked meal, or slumped on the sofa whilst choosing something to watch on the TV.

The kitchen comes with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge and even a washer/dryer, so you can wash your muddy clothes straight away.

Step into the walk-in shower and rinse yourself off after a day of rambles, before climbing into the double bed to catch your rest.

There is also a pretty twin room which is perfect for children.

The surrounding garden is beautiful with many lawned areas and shrubs, as well as off-road parking for two cars.

Taynuilt is a quaint village, home to a popular tea room and a traditional pub, perfect if you want a night off cooking, whilst a well-stocked grocer provides all the essentials.

One of Taynuilt’s most popular attractions is the Bonawe Iron Furnace, the most complete charcoal fuelled ironworks in Britain while there is also a 9-hole golf club set overlooking the Loch Etive, perfect for those avid golfers.

The village sits at the foot of Ben Cruachan between Loch Etive and Loch Awe, providing a stunning backdrop for walks and hikers.

Head into the town of Oban, just 12.5 miles away and discover fascinating attractions such as McCaig’s Tower, a prominent landmark which dates back to 1897 and is open to the public year-round.

Upper Brackendale provides a lovely base for families wanting to explore Argyll and The Isles.
