Quiet residential apartment block with easy parking. Perfect base for day trips north to Glencoe and Ben Nevis, taking the ferry from Oban to Mull and Iona. Wonderful walks on nearby Ben Lora, Sutherlands Grove, the island of Kerrera and Tralee beach. Within easy driving distance of Oban distillery, Cruachan hydro power station, the picturesque town of Inveraray, Dunstaffnage and Dunollie castles and the shops of Oban and Fort William.
The Oyster Inn and Lochnell Arms are a short walk away by the bridge serving evening meals. For excellent local beef we recommend The Old Inn at Appin (booking advisable) or for fish The Waterfront restaurant in Oban. Fish and chips at Tralee bay Wed-Sat in season. For lunch nearby Poppies garden centre serves great homemade soup and baking. The best ever scones at Ben Lora Cafe in Benderloch ( a lovely walk along the cycle path).
Spot the seals by the bridge and look out for dolphins in Loch Etive or take a scenic flight from Oban airport.
