About the neighbourhood
Activities and attractions nearby include beavers, boat trips, interesting walks, castles, prehistoric stone circles, whirlpools, islands, bike hire with easy scenic rides, beaches, a wide choice of restaurants and bars.
Getting around
Walking or biking directly from the house, along the canal towpath, is a great start to the holiday, and this gives access to forestry walks too. With a car you can access a hugh choice of interesting destinations - far more than you could possibly visit in a week's holiday. Boat trips are another option, perhaps the fast ferry to Jura, a wild rib ride to see the whirlpools at Correyvreckan, or a day trip to Mull on the regular ferries from Oban.
