The cottage is furnished beautifully and to an excellent standard. The beds are really comfy and everything you need is provided. The location is lovely and the cottage was super clean considering they do allow pets. The only downside was we found the bathroom really...More

About the neighbourhood
Ellenabeich has craft shops, a bar which also serves meals and the An-Cala Gardens which is part of Scotland's garden scheme. We also have a Heritage Museum that depicts the way of life when the area was a thriving Slate Quarry Industry.

Four miles along the road is 'Tigh an Truish' Hotel/Pub and the famous 'Bridge Over the Atlantic' built in 1792 and described as the only bridge that crosses the Atlantic. This bridge connects the mainland to the Isle of Seil where Ellenabeich is situated.

The ferry ride from the old slate pier to Easdale Island takes only a few minutes and transports you to another world where there are no cars, just natural paths that criss-cross the Island. The pub and restaurant are the centre of the Island's active and varied social life and...

How to get there
Airport: Glasgow Airport: 120.0 km
Railway: Oban: 20.0 km
Ferry: Oban: 20.0 km
If travelling up from the South on the M74, take the M8 all the way through Glasgow, following signs for Glasgow Airport. As you approach Junction 28 (The Airport), stay in the centre lanes marked Erskine Bridge and Greenock. At J30 , follow the M898 to Erskine Bridge, not the M8 to Greenock. Once over the bridge, follow the A82 north to Crianlarich and Tyndrum, then the A85 to Oban. Alternatively, and of equal time, take the A83 (Where the road splits at Tarbet on the A82) to Inverary. There, turn right at the archway onto the A819 to Dalmally/Oban. At the T junction, turn left onto the A85 to Oban. Take a pit stop at Hamilton before reaching Glasgow for petrol/toilets. After crossing the Bridge, the next available petrol/toilets will be at Milton, just before Dumbarton on the A82.... more
