In an area of great natural scenic beauty nestled between Oban and Lochgilphead, the cottage enjoys a fine prominent hillside position with spectacular views south and west over Asknish Bay to Shuna, Luing, Scarba and The Paps of Jura.
Acquired in 2016 and subsequently refurbished to an exceptionally high standard; Grannda Mhor combines class and quality whilst offering you all you could hope for in terms of comfort, peace and relaxation.
Comfortably sleeping 8, Grannda Mhor is available for rental all year round and is an ideal base for your self-catering holiday in Argyll.
The gardens and immediate surrounding area play host to a wide range of fauna including red squirrel, pine marten and otters playing in the bay with numerous bird species also present, which includes occasional sightings of Golden and Sea Eagles over the Bay.
A few hundred yards north of Grannda Mhor are the famous Arduaine Gardens and The Loch Melfort Hotel offering an excellent bistro and formal restaurant with incredible views to the west.
