Kintaline House feels like a private Scottish country hotel. With its spacious rooms, book-filled library, and living room with plump sofas ready for you to snooze in front of the log burner, it's a welcoming place for families with grown-up children (over the age of 16) and friends in the North Argyll village of Benderloch. Three lovely bedrooms sleep up to six people, with guests enjoying spectacular views from the house and gardens. The cottage sits within 24 private acres of fields and hedgerows, where the owners focus on restoring the farmland to make it a place where native species of flora and fauna thrive. A stay here will leave you feeling wonderfully refreshed and regenerated.
Benderloch is a lovely choice for a self-catering holiday. The peaceful village is between Oban and Ballachulish, only half a mile from the shore of Ardmucknish Bay and a mile from Loch Creran. Guests can immerse themselves in a timeless landscape of beaches, mountains, far-reaching views and quiet corners to sit and hear nothing but the sound of the birds and the breeze. The owner of Kintaline House is local to the area and provides guests with a wealth of information to help them make the most of every moment of their stay. There are places to walk and ride your bike, distilleries to tour and waters to fish, swim and paddle-board. Bring your binoculars and spend happy hours spotting birds, wildlife and marine life. You'll have never felt as alive as you will do here.
Oban is around eight miles away. It is the most prominent town in the area and has an excellent array of shops and other amenities. Oban is small and simple to navigate on foot. Once you've walked around McCaig's Tower and visited the chocolate factory and the distillery, spend time enjoying the views from the coastal footpath. Oban is the place to book day trips to the Isles of Mull, Staff and Iona. Visit Dunollie Castle, Dunstaffnage Castle, and the Oban War and Peace Museum. Oban has superb whisky shops to purchase your favourite tipple and seafood restaurants, so save your appetite to feast on the catch of the day.
