Cruachan, recently accredited with a Silver Green Tourism Award for sustainable practices and values, offers cosy accommodation for two and lovely views from its elevated position at Cologin, tucked away in Lerags Glen. With its south facing enclosed garden you can enjoy some star gazing on a clear night.

The property is situated in scenic Lerags Glen ensuring peace and privacy but is still less than 3 miles from the vibrant harbour town of Oban, with views across open farmland to ‘Historic Kilbride’ Kirkyard and walks from the door. Within the same site there is a small children’s play area and The Barn, a rustic pub with plenty of character (open all year but restricted hours over the winter) . A good place to catch up over a drink and tasty local fare following the days adventures.

Oban, known as the Seafood Capital of Scotland, has a wide range of seafood & fish restaurants and an excellent fish shop if you wish to cook your own. A visit to the Green Seafood Shack on the quayside is a must for those who love their shellfish. The town is otherwise known as the Gateway to the Isles with the Calmac ferry terminal on South Pier giving access by boat to Mull, Colonsay, Tiree, Lismore and Barra. And there’s a handy water taxi across to Oban’s nearest island – Kerrera – from the town’s North Pier.

The town has two impressive cathedrals and an array of independent shops, including the must visit Oban Chocolate Shop and Oban Distillery. There are several supermarkets, cafes, pubs and restaurants, a cinema, golf course, swimming pool and a selection of other land and water-based sports facilities. Not forgetting safe sandy beaches for those looking for a traditional ‘seaside holiday’, numerous historical sites within easy reach including Dunstaffnage and Dunollie Castles and Inveraray Jail and for the horticulturist’s, visits to Inveraray Castle & Gardens and Arduaine Gardens are a must. There really is plenty for all ages to explore.
