Property Description

This beautifully renovated and extended cottage enjoys an idyllic location just a hundred yards or so from the crystal clear waters of the Lyne of Lorne. Located at the end of a rough track approximately 1 mile long, Cliff Cottage stands detached and makes a wonderful retreat from which to explore this scenic area and to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the countryside.
An easy walk away is the pretty fishing village of Port Appin, which overlooks Loch Linnhe with its several islands and backdrop of mountains. From here ferries to the Isle of Lismore can be taken, where several places of interest can be visited. Apart from the fortified Tirefour Broch, there are the ruins of the 12th-century Castle Coeffin and the abandoned quarry village of Sailean with its disused kilns, as well as the ruins of Achanduin Castle and the island’s highest point Barr Mor. To the north of Port Appin, the romantic Castle Stalker can be found - much loved by photographers.
Within easy reach, the Victorian resort of Oban is the second largest town in Argyll. It has the McCaig’s Folly as its landmark, which was built in imitation of Rome’s Colosseum. A tour of the Oban Distillery is a popular experience for whisky lovers, and for younger family members, the Oban Rare Breeds Farm Park a few miles away offers a delightful visit where baby animals can be met at the children’s corner. Boat trips to Mull, Iona, Staffa, Seal Island and the Treshnish Isles can be made from the harbour at Oban, whilst a ferry takes visitors to the Isle of Kerrera - a small easily explored island from where panoramic views of Mull, the Slate Islands, Lismore and beyond can be admired.
In the opposite direction lies Fort William, with Ben Nevis - Britain’s highest summit - rising up in the background. One of the Highland’s most impressive glens, Glen Nevis, can be found just a further 10-minute drive away and apart from being the starting point for the ascent of Scotland’s highest peak, has been the location for several films, including Rob Roy and Braveheart.
The area is superb for walking, fishing and boat trips, whilst further afield are the fabulous mountains of Glencoe (with skiing in winter). Shop ¾ mile. Pub 1 mile.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. This was a fabulous house in a lovely area. It was a 15 minute walk to the pub along a dark dirt track but this added to the fun. We could also highly recommend The Pierhouse Hotel. We would definitely rent this house again. Dec 2012.
  2. Beautiful Situation. Sept 2012.
  3. A perfect spot for a quiet getaway! April 2012.
  4. Best cottage we have been to and return year after year. Feb 2012.
  5. Lovely cottage in a great secluded location. Oct 2011.
  6. We have been going to this property for a number of years. It is always beautifully presented, warm and comfortable. The kitchen is well equiped and to us it is like home from home. Availability of wireless internet is great bonus when there are teenagers in the party. Aug 2011.
  7. We really enjoyed our stay at this cottage. It was very stylish and had the feeling of a private home rather than a holiday cottage. The surroundings were absolutely stunning, the kids enjoyed the beach which is just about 100 metres from the cottage. The kitchen was well equipped, as was the beautiful "sun room" (lounge), with Blue Ray player, large plasma TV, sound system and PC. We will definitely return... Aug 2011.
  8. Warm, welcoming and obviously very well cared for. Dec 2010.
  9. Fantastic, spacious, perfect. Sept 2010.
  10. Great location, cant be beaten!! July 2010.
  11. Beautiful situation. June 2010.
  12. The cottage was great - comfortable, warm, with plenty of space and everything we needed. May 2010.
  13. It’s situation, seclusion, superb views, proximity to two very good restaurants and internet and entertainment facilities provided, also very well equipped kitchen. March 2010.
  14. The property was comfortable, relaxing and spacious for the four of us. It might of felt a bit crowded if fully occupied. March 2010.

  16. Stunning location, clean, well furnished. Sept 2009.
  17. Lovely and good quality accommodation. Good spec with regards to TV, PC, wifi - good for rainy days. Garden excellent and position next to the beach, away from everyone was great. Good size rooms and child friendly. Aug 2009.
  18. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday away from the stresses of life, this is the place to come. It is very much a home from home for us. It has everything that we need or likely to need. Particularly important, as we have teenagers and there is no mobile phone coverage, is internet access!! For us, we relish the peace and quiet, isolated yet accessible location, and the glorious scenery. July 2009.
  19. Cliffe Cottage is to die for!! Its location is perfect, the position is as thought it was designed to be there and internal finishes are luxurious and the best we have experienced so far from your company. If your looking for a romantic setting in the true sense of the words, BOOK THIS COTTAGE NOW!!! May 2009.
  20. Property and location excellent if you are looking to get away from it all, really excellent property. March 2008.
