My husband and I with our family have lived at Seabank for over 15 years and never get tired of waking up to the magnificent view from our house. We have offered holiday rentals since 2006 and enjoy welcoming back many repeat guests who have also become friends.
I come from the island of Iona so I am always delighted to recommend day trips to Mull and Iona as I can be sure most of my guests will enjoy the experience!
We live in a really beautiful part of the world and love meeting people who share our enthusiasm for nature, wildlife, scenery and outdoor activities.
It is also a pleasure to share our local produce which includes the finest seafood and many of our restaurants are using the best of Argyll's ingredients in their menus.
‘We stayed at Seabank for the second time over the Easter break. The house if fabulous, really well equipped and in a fantastic location. There are loads of things to do in the area for adults and children. The views from the house are amazing. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this place to anyone.’
This is a truly hidden gem - so close to Oban town and there so far away to have your privacy. Sandy is a wonderful owner who takes good care of you during the stay if you have a problem she is right there.
The house is tastefully furnished and clean. Views are magnificant!! Well be back for sure!
Seabank farmhouse is perfect for our family holiday, 10 of us. The house is exactly as it appears in the photographs, and is spotlessly clean inside too. The location is perfect for getting away from everything but also a great base to go exploring, walking if you want too.
We love spending our holiday time at Seabank and return year after year. Sandy and David are lovely welcoming hosts. So go on and book it, guarantee that you won't regret it!!!
We all had a great time, Fantastic location with a great view from the hot tub! A warm welcome from the owners. Would highly recommend...... We will be back!
I can't recommend this place highly enough. If you want a house that is not overlooked, where you can see awesome sunsets daily, sit in the hot tub at night and watch the moon and stars while bats flit overhead then this is the place for you! Oh, and a veritable paradise for birdwatchers!
The owners were brilliant, the house was clean, well equipped and comfortable.
Seriously........ what's not to like!
We arrived at Seabank Lodge for an October family holiday and our first impressions were wow! The Lodge itself is beautiful and clean and as described by the owners. The location of the Lodge is stunning looking over Loch Creran and is only 15-20 minutes away from Oban. The owners provided excellent service and we only had to ask if we needed anything. A tray of home made scones were there to welcome us and when we asked for more logs for the log fire it was no problem. We managed a trip to Tobermory on Mull one day (always promised my grandbairns to take them there). The family visited the Sealife Sanctuary just up the road another day and both kids and adults thoroughly enjoyed it. I have to mention the hot tub which was just fantastic and a great hit with the kids (and adults). I would definitely recommend Seabank Lodge to anyone and just wish we had been able to stay longer ourselves.
The cottage was perfect for a break with the extended family. Sandy and David were very welcoming - helpful in giving advice before we arrived, yummy scones waiting for us on arrival and letting the younger members of our party use their trampoline. The cottage worked very well for 10. Lots of space to hang out in and a super open plan kitchen with a great view of the loch. THe garden and easy access to the pebble beach was perfect for the children. There was lots of space for kite flying and football. The Benerloch area is very beautiful. All in all a perfect holiday.
Visit some of the Inner Hebrides, to view the wonderful wildlife. Boat trips leave from Oban or take the small plane from Connel Airport, 10 minutes from Seabank) to Coll, Tiree, Colonsay or Islay.
There are opportunities for most outdoor activities, both on and off the water in the area.

Seabank is an easily accessible base for those wishing to explore the region or a secluded retreat from which to enjoy the ever changing views of mountains and loch.
Sea Kayaking is increasingly popular in this area with many places offering courses from beginner to expert. The sea loch in front of Seabank is ideal for launching kayaks and canoes.
Boat trips to the Inner and Outer Hebrides are available from Oban. Wildlife is in abundance and guests have enjoyed going on the whale watching trips from Mull. Dolphins, minke whales and basking sharks are spotted regularly from the boat tours going to the island of Staffa.
