A handsome and lively Victorian town, Oban is the gateway to the highlands and its rugged landscape of wild heather moors and mountains tumbling into the sea. Beautifully situated on Oban’s esplanade, this ground floor apartment, one of a group of family-run apartments, enjoys partial sea views over the bay and the islands of Kerrera, Mull and Lismore. Decorated and furnished to a very good standard with great attention to detail, providing 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. Other interesting places to visit in the vicinity include the castles of Dunollie, Ardmaddy and Dunstaffnage, as well as Torosay and Duart across on Mull – the largest of the Inner Hebridean islands. For families, there is a Sea Life Centre, World in Miniature and Rare Breeds Park close by, and the annual Argyllshire Gathering, featuring the Highland Games, is sure to be a highlight for young and old throughout the summer season.

3rd comment: The view from the lounge window which looked out to the harbour was mesmerizing.The apartment itself was nicely set out and furnished, a home from home. would greatly recommend this property. Had disabled brother with us, no problems getting around or to the apartment as lifts are used. June 2010.
4th comment: Fantastic position overlooking harbour. May 2010.
5th comment: Having two bathrooms was a great plus for our requirements. May 2008.
6th comment: Although the weather was somewhat changeable, we had a good time without getting too soaked too often but the best bit was obviously waking up in the morning and seeing that view and all the boats as well as gazing at it during darkness. I would love to own one myself if one was available. Aug 2007.
7th comment: First class apartment and excellent location. Sept 2006.
8th comment: The views from the apartment were excellent especially the sunsets over the islands. We found the apartment to be well furnished and supplied with sufficient equipment. Also we had the added bonus of not having a coin meter for the electric. The lift to the apartments was much appreciated especially for carrying the luggage. July 2006.
