This cosy, beautifully refurbished holiday home has what must arguably be the best view in the entire area of that most romantic Scottish landmark, Castle Stalker (well known from a million Scottish souvenir calendars). Those who like to book the best seats in the house will just love Dallens Cottage.
Peacefully situated at the end of a track, the cottage stands in almost half an acre of its own walled and hedged garden with ample parking for several vehicles.
With large picture windows and an extensive decking area to the front (with furniture), you are perfectly positioned to watch the constantly changing seascape before you. The idyll is often enhanced by the sight of the horses from the nearby riding school cantering across the beach at low tide. You can enjoy, in particular, the wonderful colours of the legendary west coast sunsets, as the sun sinks in splendour behind the island of Lismore. The new Oban to Fort William cycle track runs just a few hundred yards from the cottage, so don't forget to bring your bikes!
Well-equipped and furnished, with an oil-fired Aga in the kitchen (there is also a electric hob and oven for non-Aga fans) and a wood-burning stove in the sitting room to keep it warm at all seasons. This spacious, four bedroom (one en suite) cottage is a wonderful place to unwind and enjoy all that the surroundings have to offer.
Here you are in the centre of the lovely district of Appin, which was immortalised in R L Stevenson's 'Kidnapped'.
You are also just over three miles from the world-renowned Aird's Hotel and the Pierhouse Restaurant at Port Appin (with PO and shop), where you can also catch the little ferry which plies across to Lismore island.
Within walking distance up the hill, the Stalker View visitor centre has a coffee shop serving excellent light meals. The above-mentioned riding stables are less than a mile away. There is golf and more shops and hotels 15 miles away at Ballachulish, which also opens the way to Glencoe, with its walking, climbing and skiing potential.
To the south, there is a beautiful safe beach at Ardmucknish Bay (14m) on the way to Oban, (22m, with all facilites and ferry connections to Mull, Staffa, Iona, etc). Fort William (with all facilities, boat trips, dry ski slope, leisure centre and, of course, Ben Nevis) is 24 miles to the north. At Dallens Cottage you really are at the centre of so much of the best that Scotland has to offer.
