Cliff Cottage in Port Appin, Argyll, West Scotland

Cliff Cottage, Port Appin, Argyll, West Scotland

Sleeps 8
Weekly prices from £430 to £ 1455

Self catering accommodation in Port Appin sleeps 8.

Features include: • Garden • Pet friendly • Internet Access • Close to the Beach • Pub near by • Detached Property • Cottage Sleeps 8

Accommodation overview:

This beautifully renovated and extended cottage enjoys an idyllic location just a hundred yards or so from the crystal clear waters of the Lyne of Lorne. Located at the end of a rough track approximately 1 mile long, Cliff Cottage stands detached and makes a wonderful retreat from which to explore this scenic area and to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the countryside.
An easy walk away is the pretty fishing village of Port Appin, which overlooks Loch Linnhe with its several islands and backdrop of mountains. From here ferries to the Isle of Lismore can be taken, where several places of interest can be visited. Apart from the fortified Tirefour Broch, there are the ruins of the 12th-century Castle Coeffin and the abandoned quarry village of Sailean with its disused kilns, as well as the ruins of Achanduin Castle and the island’s highest point Barr Mor. To the north of Port Appin, the romantic Castle Stalker can be found - much loved by photographers.
Within easy reach, the Victorian resort of Oban is the second largest town in Argyll. It has the McCaig’s Folly as its landmark, which was built in imitation of Rome’s Colosseum. A tour of the Oban Distillery is a popular experience for whisky lovers, and for younger family members, the Oban Rare Breeds Farm Park a few miles away offers a delightful visit where baby animals can be met at the children’s corner. Boat trips to Mull, Iona, Staffa, Seal Island and the Treshnish Isles can be made from the harbour at Oban, whilst a ferry takes visitors to the Isle of Kerrera - a small easily explored island from where panoramic views of Mull, the Slate Islands, Lismore and beyond can be admired.
In the opposite direction lies Fort William, with Ben Nevis - Britain’s highest summit - rising up in the background. One of the Highland’s most impressive glens, Glen Nevis, can be found just a further 10-minute drive away and apart from being the starting point for the ascent of Scotland’s highest peak, has been the location for several films, including Rob Roy and Braveheart.
The area is superb for walking, fishing and boat trips, whilst further afield are the fabulous mountains of Glencoe (with skiing in winter). Shop ¾ mile. Pub 1 mile.
