One of Argyll’s Slate Islands, Seil is 12 miles south west of Oban, in Argyll, Scotland and is connected to the mainland by the world famous ‘Bridge over the Atlantic’. This region of Argyll is one of the most stunning areas in Scotland with the sea on the doorstep, mountains and lochs around every corner, Celtic and Viking history in abundance and the most amazing wildlife from otters, minke whales, basking sharks to sea eagles, golden eagles and puffins; All of which are easily accessible from Seil, and being near Oban, the 'Gateway to the Isles' it’s a great base for exploring the inner Hebridean islands, such as Mull, Jura, Islay and Iona. Whether you're looking for relaxation and rejuvenation or an adventure filled holiday, Seil Holiday Cottages make the perfect self catering accommodation in Argyll. The cottage is close to Seil Sound, easily accessible from a private pontoon owned by Sealife Adventures- wildlife and whale searching boat trips around the Firth of Lorne and Corryvrecken whirlpool, where guests can enjoy a discount on trips. The garden has some steep drops and a small pond therefore children would need to be supervised. More

About the neighbourhood
The Isle of Seil enjoys the peace and tranquillity of island life but with the advantage of it being easily accessible. One of Argyll’s Slate Islands, Seil is 12 miles south west of Oban, in Argyll, Scotland and is connected to the mainland by the world famous ‘Bridge over the Atlantic’. Seil island benefits from a mild climate washed by the gulf stream. The Firth of Lorne Special Area of Conservation is an area of outstanding natural beauty; of uninhabited islands whose sea-cliffs plunge into clear nutrient rich oceanic waters. Along the shoreline you may also see grey seals, common seals and otters. Sea eagles, golden eagles, buzzards and peregrine falcons can be seen circling above. Its a wonderful place for walks, boat trips and bird watching. Whether you want to come for relaxat...
Getting around
Seil is on a bus route from Oban and you can also get a taxi. In Oban you can buses to all the local areas or ferries to the islands such as Mull. On the island the best way to see everything is either on foot or bike or if you want to go further afield your own car will be the best option.
