About Kintaline House

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.

The Highlands is an adventurer's playground with almost every outdoor activity you can imagine. It is also an area rich in culture, reflected not only in the ancient buildings and in the language but also in events like the annual Highland games - a tradition that has held strong for a thousand years. Music, food, and arts are all celebrated. The owner's website has a calendar of local events to help you plan your stay.

Accommodation Comprises:

Kintaline House is a lovely property with accommodation over two levels. The owner lives in the neighbouring farmhouse.


  • Enter into the welcoming hallway with a double-height ceiling, stairs leading to the upper level and a hallway connecting you to all of the rooms on the ground floor. There is space to hang coats and leave boots. A door opens into the downstairs cloakroom.
  • Huge double-height open plan living room with multi-aspect windows overlooking the garden, a log burner, and a wall full of so many different types of books that you may never want to leave the sofa. With efficient central heating and triple glazed windows, you can stay warm and cosy even in the middle of the coldest winter. There's nowhere better to hole up and wait out a storm than in here, reading, using your Amazon or Netflix accounts on the Smart TV, playing games or listening to music.
  • Spacious dining area with a table that seats eight people so you can have friends over for dinner.
  • Galleried balcony above the living room where guests will find a quiet place to work, or to settle into an armchair to lose themselves in a good book.
  • Sunny conservatory with a low table and armchairs to sit and admire views of the garden plus a larger table where everyone can sit and eat. It's also a great spot to stargaze if you don't want to stay outside.
  • Family kitchen/breakfast with fitted cupboards full of all of the equipment and utensils you will need to cook and serve delicious meals. There is a smaller dining table in here with room for four people (plus an extra 2 fold-up chairs if needed). Beautiful views of the garden may distract you from your task, but the multi-oven range cooker and dishwasher will make self-catering easier. There is also a washing machine and a dryer for your convenience plus a fridge and freezer.
  • Double bedroom with a comfortable bed, bedside tables with reading lights, ample storage, a TV and a USB charger. The ensuite has a shower over the bath, heated towel rail, WC, bidet and a handbasin. Bed linen, bath towels and Barcaldine Botanicals are all provided.


  • Second double bedroom with lots of built-in storage, bedside tables with reading lights, and a USB charger.
  • Twin bedroom with two full-sized single beds, ample storage, a TV and a USB charging point.
  • Family bathroom with a shower over the bath, WC and bidet, heated towel rail and a handbasin.

Outside: This area gets almost 18 hours of daylight in summer. Kintaline House has a big private garden with mature flowering plants and fruit trees. There are several seating areas and a willow arbour. Sit outside and enjoy the long summer evenings that become even more magical at sunset. It's possible to hire an outdoor spa bath. Plenty of off-road parking.

Additional Information: Utilities, Superfast WiFi, bed linen and bath towels are all included. Guests to provide beach towels if they are required. Unfortunately no dogs and no children under the age of 16.
