Just a few yards from stunning Loch Linnhe and the views across to the splendid Ardgour hills, this detached 'bothy' is part of a working farm on a small private estate and offers a unique holiday experience. Recently reconstructed, the 'bothy' is above a former cowshed and is accessed by 9 steep steps from the farmyard overlooked by llamas and other farm animals. The bright interior is modern, comfortable and cosy - ideal for a break at any time of the year. Garden furniture is provided to sit out in the farmyard and enjoy the rural surroundings, far away from everyday life!
The property makes an ideal base for those wishing to fully explore the magnificent West Coast. Glencoe is a short drive - a popular spot with mountaineers and hill-walkers. The surrounding area of Appin boasts many outdoor pursuits including sea trout and salmon fishing (arranged locally), golf, cycling, varied sea life and bird-watching. Take your bikes across on the ferry from Port Appin to explore the Isle of Lismore. The main tourist resort of Oban has excellent amenities and day cruises to the isles. There are two hotels nearby and a shop/post office at Duror 1.5 miles.
1 double bedroom with en-suite bathroom (shower attachment), open plan sitting / dining room / kitchen. All electric. Fridge/freezer, washing machine, microwave, television. Bed linen and towels are provided.
Customer Reviews of The Bothy, Loch Linnhe - Sleeps 2
"A lovely cosy cottage in a fantastic location." Ms L. Chrisitie
"Location great, lovely people, I would definitely return." Mr B. Harris
"We loved this cosy cottage and the lochside location. The owners and her helpers were the friendliest we've ever met in 30 years of booking cottages in the UK. A perfect autumn break with even some sunshine and sightings of an otter and other wildlife." Ms L. Hedges
"Wonderful setting for an "away from it all" holiday - would be ideal for a honeymoon! We loved walking the few yards to "our" Loch, and enjoyed many tranquil hours sitting in awe of the spectacular views. A very convenient base for exploring the Western Isles, for example an easy trip to Mull and Iona, or cycling on Lismore. We were enchanted by the resident animals - llamas, sheep and of course abigail the Pig! The local wildlife was equally magical - a particular treat was watching an otter catching fish in the clear water. The Bothy itself was charming, and the owners most hospitable from the day we arrived. Highly recommended" Mrs K. Froggatt
"Characterful cottage in quiet, interesting location. Ideal for cycling and mountain walking as long as you don't mind driving a bit each day. Nearby a road very quiet during the night. If the weather had been any colder the cottage may have been difficult to keep warm.." Mr Sanderson
"Generally well equipped and pleased to find lots of basics provided including cling film, foil washing materials etc." Mrs C. Maxfield
"Very quiet and comfortable, fantastic location." Mrs Fraser
