WELL APPOINTED VERY LARGE LUXURY HOUSE WITH STUNNING VIEW ACROSS LOCH ETIVE

Oban, Isle of Mull & Lorn House Rental Photos and Description

6 Bedrooms 3 Living Rooms 2 Kitchens - Sleeps 12 - Nr Oban West Cost Scotland

The house has a hallway entrance with cloakroom, separate loo and shower room. This opens into the main spacious vaulted living area (8m2), with floating hearth and large log burner. The living area has comfortable seating for 12, a piano and stereo with CD player and iPod connection. The large very well equipped modern kitchen has plenty of storage space, double dishwasher, large fridge freezer and large induction cooker (5 ring cooker with 2 large ovens and a large grill) Also a Quooker (express hot water, no kettle required) The dining area has a large refectory table, which easily seats 12. There are 6 bedrooms - 4 Doubles and 2 Twins/doubles, and extra gallery bedroom with double sofa-bed, all beds are super-king size and the master bedroom has a 7' x 6'6' bed with luxury on-suite bathroom. The house has 6 bathrooms. There is a TV Room with comfortable setting for 12, with DVD Player, log burner.

The 2.4m wide deck surrounds the lower floor and is an idyllic space to sit.

Nature / Otter spotting: We have seen Otters in Ben Dhuirrnish Bay on many occasions, there is a solitary Otter seen quite regularly and we have also seen the female with her cub and occasionally the father as well (only once see all three and I don't think the female Otter was that happy with the father being there)! - These Otter sightings are tide and weather dependent and can not be guaranteed - but I have loads of video film (many occasions 30 minutes plus of video and also some amazing photographs of the otter close-up). With luck and patience it is just a fantastic experience and had made the holiday for many of our guests.

Nature / Bird Watching: Resident common gulls, mallard, eider, herons, we also see mergansers and goosanders, little grebes, kingfishers and many other birds including peregrines, merlins, buzzards, hooded crows and further up the loch we have spotted Golden Eagles. Towards the head of the loch there is a seal colony, which can be seen from the Taynuilt Cruise Boat.

Fishing / Sea and Fresh Water: Bonawe is a known fishing mark for sea anglers. The Loch has the Scottish record hake, Skate up to 40 lbs, Spurdog and Dogfish.

Thornback Ray, Cod and Pollock into double figures and Mackerel, Whiting, Ling, Haddock, Coalfish and other species available.

The spurdog fishing in Loch Etive is excellent. The Scottish shore record of 15lb 3oz was caught here in 1991. Fishing in front of the house can be productive with massive shoals of Mackerel coming into Ben Dhuirrinsh Bay and are easily catchable on light tackle from the shore- Brilliant fun.

Boats can be hired from Taynuilt boat hire and these can be delivered to the jetty at the end of the island - Very handy and great fun.

Happy Fishing....

RELAXED IDYLL

  • 5 of 5
This was arranged as a trip for 2 of us having a birthday and to be with friends and family. The house and location exceeded our already high expectations. The spec of the kitchen was great with everything one could need and hidden dishwashers which worked like a dream. The wine fridge kept the wine cool after original cooling in the main fridge. The views from every room were lovely and the overall ambience was enhanced by open plan living with different areas. We enjoyed reading and just being. We also enjoyed the board games and books.
In the area our all-time favourite eatery is the Seafood Temple but there is plenty of choice. We loved our sail on Loch Etive and were lucky to be picked up from the small jetty near to the house after asking if this would be possible. We saw seals and other wildlife and this was a fitting end to our trip. We would return with more family who could not manage this time. A fantastic renovation in a stunning area.

WONDERFUL, SPACIOUS HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
I rented this house with my siblings for my parent’s fiftieth wedding anniversary. We needed a place that could sleep nine comfortably and wanted to be somewhere near Oban. Tigh na Breac met all our expectations. The house is beautifully furnished and does not even seem like a rental. It is more like you are staying in a friend’s house. The house is extremely spacious. It took me most of the week to remember how to get around to the various rooms. We had some very heavy rain while we were there and Andrew was ringing us to make sure everything was ok. The house is quite secluded almost at the very end of the lane on the north side of Loch Etive which is what I was looking for. It does take a bit of time to get into town so make sure you plan accordingly. If I need another large home in the area, I would definitely return to Tigh na Breac.

THE CAMERON FAMILY SEPTEMBER WEEKEND BREAK.

  • 5 of 5
My family travelled to Tigh na Breac for the September Weekend 2013. There was 12 in the party,8 adults and my 4 grand kids. The house was absolutely ideal, to cater for all of our needs. In fact with the 3 different lounges it gave, adults or kids, the opportunity to have time or space to do their own thing, i.e the kids watching their own DVDs. The house is very well appointed, to a high standard, and we didn't want for anything.

The views and scenery were stunning, enhanced by the near perfect weather that we encountered over the entire weekend. We were extremely fortunate. We didn't even need to utilise the log burners on any of the evenings. We were also treated to a visit and water aerobic skills from the resident Otter for 20 minutes or so. It was brilliant.

Andrew's comprehensive list of things to do and see came in very handy, as it allowed us to eat at and see some of the places that he recommended. He was also very magnanimous in his attitude with the couple of little mishaps that we had with the kids.

I truly hope that the family get the opportunity to return to this wonderful place. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Tigh na Breac to other family members or friends, in fact, I've already done so.

THIS WAS A GREAT PROPERTY AND PERFECT FOR A GROUP.

  • 5 of 5
We traveled to the Oban area in early September with a large group of 8 people; we were looking for a quiet place that would allow us plenty of individual privacy but also the opportunity to socialize in the community spaces of the house. When we walked in the first evening we were amazed at how great this property was! Everything in it was first-rate - extremely clean, high quality finishes, outstanding views and the perfect combination of common and private space. For most of us, it was the nicest house we'd ever stayed in. Personally, the chance to sit in the evening with my friends, drinking a glass of Oban whisky with a peat fire burning in the fireplace was near-perfection.

The owner was a pleasure to work with - he responded to every question immediately and gave us great suggestions for things to do. There was nothing that we needed that wasn't already in the house and waiting for us. He clearly cares about the property and his guests, and his attention to detail shows!

In short, it was an outstanding place to be and at an extremely reasonable price. I would very much look forward to staying there again - and wouldn't consider any other place in the area if traveling with a group. I have already recommended it to my friends!
