"Family-run holiday apartments in a stunning location on Oban’s esplanade, with superb views overlooking the sea and surrounding islands. Centrally situated with free parking and walking distance to town centre, ferry, coach and rail terminals..."
A handsome and lively Victorian town, Oban is the gateway to the Highlands, and its rugged landscape of wild heather moors and mountains tumble into the sea. Beautifully situated on Oban’s esplanade, these three apartments enjoy superb views over the bay and their name-sake islands of Kerrera, Mull and Lismore. Each has been decorated and furnished to a high standard with great attention to detail and provides spacious, airy and comfortable accommodation, within convenient walking distance of shops, restaurants and entertainment Highland style! From Oban’s bustling harbour, there are daily boat trips to the surrounding islands, where an abundance of birds and wildlife can be spotted. Visit the castles of Dunollie, Ardmaddy and Dunstaffnage, as well as Torosay and Duart across on Mull. There is a Sea Life Centre close by, and the annual Argyllshire Gathering, featuring the Highland Games. The Oban Distillery offers an interesting guided tour and a must see is McCaig’s Folly.
For a day out, Glasgow has many attractions including the Gallery of Modern Art, the People’s Palace and the Transport Museum. More unusual places to visit include the Piping Centre (a national centre for the promotion of the bagpipe), the aromatic and peaceful Garden of St Nicholas and The Tall Ship at Glasgow Harbour. For those seeking an outdoor lifestyle, there can be no better choice than this stunning part of the Highlands. Wonderful walking, climbing, sailing and both lake and river fishing can all be enjoyed locally, with sea fishing on the doorstep. Riding, cycle hire and golf are available and skiing from Fort William in winter. An ideal base for enjoying the pleasures of the great outdoors or just savouring the spectacular scenery of the Western Highlands. Shops 100 yards.
