Famed for its slate quarrying, Easdale is a charming and fascinating place, where history and the natural environment live side-by-side. Chattan has a modern and comfortable atmosphere, with amenities designed to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. There is a spacious lounge with a wood burning stove, three cosy bedrooms and a kitchen/dining area with patio doors out to the garden at the back which gets the morning sun. Whatever the weather and the season, Chattan offers you a place to relax, unwind and explore.

The space
Chattan Cottage is situated on the former slate mining island of Easdale, 15 miles south of the town of Oban in Argyll, the island has around 60 permanent inhabitants and has a fantastic sense of community; a warm welcome awaits any visitor.

Renovated to give a more modern, minimalist appeal with crafty features it still retains its picture postcard image of a fisherman's cottage, having a comfortable cosy environment with a log burning stove if need be for those chillier evenings. Relax on the private decking in the sun overlooking the stunning views or take a stroll around the shoreline of this beautiful Island at dusk. A brilliant place to relax and really be at peace with your surroundings.
