The house is beautifully designed and is full of surprises like the sauna which accesses into the birch woodlands. It sleeps eight and our goal has been to make it as family-friendly, comfortable and unique as possible. Sithean is secluded and peaceful, yet is only 2 miles away from Taynuilt, a lovely well-serviced village on the shores of Loch Etive. The West Coast town of Oban, known as 'the Gateway to the Isles', is 8 miles away; from there you can take a ferry to many of the inner and outer Hebridean islands. The location is ideal for walking and cycling for the whole family, and there is an amazing range of wildlife; hen harriers breed in the rough grassland below the house, deer wander down off the heather hill and red squirrels breed in the surrounding oak and birch woodlands. Within walking distance is Angus' Garden, one of the 'Glorious Gardens of Argyll & Bute', which is a beautiful 'wild' garden built around Loch Angus, and like the rest of this glen is a magical unspoilt place. Sithean is self contained and peaceful. It has been designed to sleep six to eight people, and can accommodate two families. This lovely new house has South and West facing dining areas (inside and outside) inluding a new elevated decking area on top of the knoll, and commands spectacular views of Loch Etive and the 'Shepherds of Glencoe' to the North, Ben Cruachan to the East, Morvern to the West and Barguillean Hill to the South. On the entry level there is a porch which is ideally suited for drying wet boots and clothes. This leads on the one side to a shower-room and a double bedroom with a mezzanine and twin beds, and on the other side to the kitchen. The kitchen, dining and living areas are open plan with a vaulted ceiling, and are attractively divided by a split level floor and earth brick walls. The living area has a radio/stereo with ipod, ipod docking station, and a TV and DVD player. Wi-fi is available. There is a wood burning stove in the living area, and under-floor heating throughout the house. Downstairs there is a double bedroom, a twin bedroom and a bathroom with a sauna which has direct access onto a decking area. The design allows an intimate connection with the birch woods from the lower level. The house contains everything you should need for your holiday, including full kitchen facilities (and eggs when available). Sithean meets Category 2 (wheelchair access with assistance) of the VisitScotland Accessibility Scheme for the whole of the entry level.

We had fantastic time, despite weather challenges. The house perfect for two families. It benefits from plenty of space to relax, admire the view but also socialize. Children can find many interesting board games, toys and books. I would highly recommend it
