Overview

It stands on the little road that leads down to Easdale, just a small field's distance from the lochside, and with the most beautiful views across the loch to the mountains beyond. Look out for some splendid sunsets!

The Estate extends to 2,500 acres of very varied ground, with woodland, open hills and a sea-loch foreshore. Visitors can enjoy delightful walks, watching the plentiful wildlife, salmon fishing (chargeable) on the River Euchar and fun trout fishing on two inland lochs (INCLUDED from spring to autumn). Water sports and pony trekking are also available nearby.

Map & Local

Alpein Cottage is a perfect base from which to explore the many attractions of this beautiful area. The small island of Seil, with the picturesque little village of Easdale, approached by the 'Bridge over the Atlantic', is just 4 miles away.

In addition to shops, hotels, restaurants, etc. Oban has a golf course, swimming pool, cinema, sandy beach at Ganavan, Sea Life Centre at Barcaldine (20 miles) and Rare Breeds Park. From there too, there are also regular excursions by boat to the islands of Mull, Staffa, Iona, Lismore etc.

Just north of Oban at Benderloch, there is a superb beach at Tralee Bay (16 miles). Continuing north towards Fort William, by Appin and Duror, the coastal road just gets lovelier and lovelier. Another worthwhile excursion, perhaps part of a round trip around Loch Awe, would take in the Hydro Electric Scheme at Cruachan, where visitors can go right into the heart of the mountain to see the underground Power Station.

In the other direction, there are the famous Arduaine Gardens (11 miles) and Lochgilphead (29 miles). It is possible to wile away a very pleasant afternoon watching vessels negotiate the nearby Crinan Canal, which runs from Ardrishaig, just south of Lochgilphead, to Crinan and which allows sea going vessels to take a short cut from the Firth of Clyde and Loch Fyne to the Atlantic.

We had a fantastic time visiting Glencoe, castles galore, fishing villages, glens and lochs and great fish restaurants.
