MacDougall Apartment located on the edge of Taynuilt village makes a super holiday base being part of the fabulous Lonan House, a Grade B listed Lorimer House, with wonderful architecture and landscaped grounds while all that the highlands and Islands have to offer is on the doorstep with easy access to the stunning west coast and day trips to the Isle of Mull.
MacDougall Apartment is located on the ground floor of Lonan House and sleeps up to 4 guests in two spacious bedrooms. This newly renovated self-catering apartment provides exceptional comfort yet cleverly retains the welcoming, relaxed atmosphere the west coast of Scotland is so well known for. The inviting wood-burning stove in the comfortable sitting room adds to its charm and creates an idyllic backdrop for memorable evenings, and the well-equipped kitchen/dining room is ideal for relaxed holiday meals. French doors open on to the house terrace allowing guests to enjoy summertime drinks and alfresco dining. The king size bedroom enjoys views to Ben Cruachan and the second bedroom has linking beds offering the choice between twin or super-king, therefore making it a perfect holiday destination for couples, friends or a small family.
Lonan House enjoys a glorious Scottish setting with stunning views to Ben Cruachan, Argyll’s highest mountain. Designed by Sir Robert Lorimer and built in 1906, this impressive Edwardian mansion is full of romantic highland character and retains many of its original Arts & Crafts features. This is a wonderful holiday destination for dog owners and guests are invited to enjoy the large surrounding landscaped garden, complete with croquet lawn and pond, extended grounds and woodland which give a wonderful sense of space and freedom. Deer are often seen grazing around the house and this magical spot is home to amazing wildlife including red squirrels, otters and pine marten. Keen birdwatchers will delight at the huge variety of birds including the chance to see golden and white-tailed sea eagles or the beautiful black grouse. There are endless walks to be discovered right from the doorstep and many wonderful panoramic views across the glen to Mull in the West, Loch Etive in the North and Loch Awe in the East. Glen Lonan is part of National Cycle Route 78, The Caledonia Way, stretching 234 miles through stunning Scottish countryside.
Quiet days can be spent relaxing in the surrounding peace, or the nearby harbour town of Oban offers a good range of shops, local attractions and excellent restaurants, many of which serve freshly caught seafood. During the summer the town comes alive with a host of festivals and ceilidhs, attracting bagpipers, highland dancers and traditional musicians from all over the world. There are numerous exciting day trips to be enjoyed including ferries to the beautiful inner Hebridean islands including Mull and Tiree.
The village of Taynuilt is within walking distance (1 mile) and has a train station with regular trains to Glasgow, Oban and Dalmally. Also, it has a well stocked grocery shop, butchers, post office and tea-room. There is a nine-hole course for the golf enthusiast and lovely walks along the piers at Loch Etive.
