Holiday Rental House
Fancy some Loch side living? Waterfront cottage full of period charm for 4 just outside Oban. The cottage has lots of original features with open fires and stunning views over the Falls of Lora. We regularly spot seals from the house and if you are in luck; otters! The living room with plush Chesterfield sofa and wing armchair has the original open fire place for cosy nights in with TV, DVD-player, lots of rainy day DVD's, free Wi-Fi, local books and glossy magazines, there is a separate dining room again with an open fireplace with internet radio, I-pod dock & board games. The sitting room with sea view is a lovely spot to do some wild life watching and you'll have oyster catchers, seals, herons, and the local otter for company. Binoculars are provided to spy the wild life. The kit...Fancy some Loch side living? Waterfront cottage full of period charm for 4 just outside Oban.

The kitchen is well equipped with microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, Senseo coffee machine, halogeen hob with double oven and a lot of little extras like herbs & spices, coffee, tea, nice shortbread, dishwasher tablets and a complementary bottle of wine waiting for you. There is a washing machine and tumble dryer at the cottage for your use. Upstairs; 2 spacious bedrooms, a King size and a twin which can be made up as another King size if desired. Large bathroom with cast iron bath, separate shower, wash hand basin and WC. Luxury toiletries, hairdryers and fluffy towels are provided. Outside a large waterfront deck to the side of the cottage with seating & chimenea. Plenty off street parking available at the cottage. If you are looking for accommodation for up to 8 people than our neighbouring cottage (id185030) is suitable since it can be connected easily by adjoining hallway for a larger family getaway. Quotes on Trip advisor are from prices and do not always reflect the true rental price. Please note we only cater for children over 8 due to our proximity to water.More

About the neighbourhood
Some suggestions for places and walks in Argyll; A trip to Crinan; just sit at the locks and watch the goings-on with boats travelling through the canal. A drive through Glen Lonan with lots of Highland cows to see, nice scenery and come out at Taynuilt to collect smoked salmon or trout pate from Inverawe smokehouse for lunch. Take a boat trip over to Kerrera and visit Gylen Castle and the quaint tearoom. In summer join the Jacobite steam train (the Hogwart Express) from Fort William to Mallaig for the most scenic train ride in Britain A trip to Mull, if you take the car across make sure to head for Glengorm Castle north of Tobermory to have lunch. Visit Tobermory with it's colourful seafront. Or stay put and get hypnotised by the water.
Getting around
We are 10 minutes away from the lively harbour town of Oban with lots of ferry routes to the Hebrides to chose from for a day's outing. There are various castles in the local area such as Dunstaffnage, Kilchurn and Stalker castle. We are an easy day's drive to Fort William and an outing on the famous Harry Potter train. Glencoe is also nearby, as well as lots of other stunning sightseeing trips. The village of Connel has 3 local hotels for dining out, a well stocked village shop and a regular bus service into Oban.
