    Seaview Cottage is a former lock keeper’s cottage set on the banks of the Crinan Canal, just ¼ mile from Crinan Habour. Built in 1815, it has undergone complete renovation – preserving this historically important building for future generations to enjoy. Guests can expect cosy, comfortable surroundings with a unique Scottish twist.

    The small hamlets of Cairnbaan, Tayvallich and Achnamara are close by and there are plenty of walks, cycle paths and watersports to enjoy. The history in the area goes back more than 5,000 years. Prehistoric ‘cup and ring’ marks carved into the rocks of Kilmartin Glen have been puzzling archaeologists for generations. Nearby there’s the impressive Iron Age Dunadd Fort, from which the ancient kings of Scotland surveyed their realm. The intriguing and sometimes strange history of Scotland comes vividly to life at the internationally-acclaimed Kilmartin House Museum.

    There’s plenty to see in the wild, too. Eagles hunt overhead as seals bask on the beaches, and nearby Knapdale is home to the Scottish Beaver Trail, so there’s always the chance of seeing one gnawing on a tree trunk somewhere!

    Destinations by ferry from Oban include Mull, Staffa, Iona and Colonsay, while from Kennacraig you can reach Gigha, Islay and Jura. Dolphins, diving birds, puffins and even the occasional basking shark can be spotted from the many boat trips on offer.
