Welcome to Achnacree Bay Holiday Cottages near Oban
At Achnacree Bay, which is located 7 miles from Oban (also known as both "The Gateway to the Isles" and "Seafood Capital of Scotland") you will find your choice of two of the finest recently refurbished 3 bedroom self catering holiday homes that the West Coast Highlands has to offer.
Both cottages comfortably sleep 6 and are ideal for either families or couples. The homes are ideally located a "stones throw" from the shores of Loch Etive and have spectacular views that take in both the Loch and Ben Cruachan. The cottages are a leisurely walk to either the villages of Benderloch or Connel where you will find a licensed general store and for the more energetic there is the climb up the forest path to Ben Lora or a meander through the many miles of Barcaldine forest paths. The cottages are also within easy reach of the Oban to Fort William cycle path - a wonderful scenic route almost entirely traffic free using parts of the old railway line, forest paths and along the roadside - a fantastic oppertunity for safe cycling.
Loch Etive offers a number of activities ... fishing either from the shore or by boat ... Loch cruises from nearby Taynuilt or cycle along its picture perfect shore. Direct access to Loch Etive for small boat launching.
If it happens to rain it is always enjoyable to stroll round the many shops and restaurants of Oban, visit its leisure centre and swimming pool, tour the distillery or take a tour inside Ben Cruachan "The Hollow Mountain" to see first hand how Hydro Electricity is generated.
There are three good restaurants/pubs within two miles of the cottages.
