Semi-detached, Sealladh Apartment is a one-bedroom property in the pretty little fishing village of port Appin. It lies on a peaceful secluded peninsula between Oban and Fort William. Undoubtedly this village is one of Argyll’s most picturesque spots, overlooking Loch Linnhe, with Lismore, Morvern and Mull in the background. As you turn off the main A828 towards Port Appin, the first thing you will notice is Castle Stalker, one of Scotland’s most photographed castles. The castle occupies a small rock island to the north of village, it dates back to 1495 but what you see now is the result of restoration in 1960s.
A great way to explore the area is cycling; bikes can be hired in Port Appin and the cycle track from Glencoe to Oban can be reached by crossing the Jubilee Footbridge. If you want to venture further afield then a small passenger ferry run from the village to the neighboring island of Lismore and bikes travel for free. There are plenty of walk routes around the village and nearby area, Port Appin circuit walk is an easy-going coastal walk taking in the headland beyond Port Appin with fine views over Lismore and out towards Mull. Another easy walk is across Jubilee Bridge toward Stalker Castle; the walk continues across the tidal marshes of Loch Laich. The walk then follows a cycletrack and the shoreline to a good viewpoint of Castle Stalker before returning by the same route. Don’t miss out the Lighthouse Appin craft shop, this is a local arts and craft shop/gallery, tourist information and coffee shop which specialises in unique, high quality items, most of them one-off, from over 80 local and Scottish artists and crafters. The owner of Sealladh Apartment, Graeme MacCorquodale, is one of the local artists and his wildlife and landscapes paintings are displayed here.
Kinlochlaich and Druimneil are two garden centres in the village that are worth a visit, and if you fancy horse riding then visit Lettershuna Riding Centre. If you like to explore further, then the Scottish Sea Life Centre Sanctuary at Barcaldine is a 16-minute drive away. Oban is only a ½-hour drive away where you can Visit McCaig’s Tower, Oban Distillery, Dunollie Museum, castle and grounds, and Dunstaffnage Castle and Chapel. Oban is the gateway to the isles, and CalMac Ferries operate an extensive service from Oban to many destinations. You could catch the ferries to explore Mull, Staffa or Iona, all with an abundance of wildlife.
Other places to visit include Bonawe Iron Works, Cruachan Hollow Mountain, Loch Etive and Ardchattan Priory Gardens. Inveraray, the traditional county town of Argyll and ancestral home of the Duke of Argyll, is 47 miles away. This beautiful town offers a massive choice of historic sites including castles and monuments where stories of Scotland’s turbulent past will entertain you.
Glencoe and the busy tourist resort town of Fort William are 45 minutes’ drive and offer plenty of outdoor activities. A great excursion from Fort William is to Glenfinnan Viaduct, often recognised from numerous Harry Potter movies (amongst other films), and steam excursions aboard the lovely Jacobite steam train along the West Highland Line.
These properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 6 guests.
