About MacLeod Family
We are a family of six running a farm and several self-catering properties www.ballimore.com in the Oban area. We moved to Argyll in 2009 and have made the beautiful West-Coast of Scotland our home.
MacLeod Family purchased this House in 2011
Why MacLeod Family chose Oban
This house is the perfect family retreat for those that do not want to get into a car on a daily basis but who enjoy the convenience of being in a town and close to local amenities - without compromising on the holiday feel with stunning sea views. For a farm experience have a look at our farm lodges www.ballimore.com.
What makes this House unique
Being in town with its shops, bars, restaurants, riding stable, golf club, distillery, marina, leisure facilities and only a short walk away from Oban Bay and its ferry terminals is a great opportunity for those that want to enjoy an active holiday in the picturesque sea-side town of Oban.

This is a very special place. A happy home and comfortable too. Nice walk to Oban. Strengthen your calves walking back up hill after the meal. Perfect! We will be back.
This home worked nicely for the 5 of us. There is a steep hill to town but it can be walked. The host met us and quickly showed us the property. I only wish I had asked about the stove but we eventually figured out the switch had to be turned on, ha! The kitchen is wonderful and the host provided fruit, cookies and fresh flowers. There is a washer but I don't believe a dryer. I think bath hand soap and hair dryer would also be helpful, and there are departure chores. I would recommend this home.
A wonderfully located spot to call home base.
Braemar was exactly what it promised and worth every pence. It’s centrally located making it easy to get into town and move around, but also very private and peaceful (especially the backyard view of the town and port).
I’d definitely book there again when making another visit.
Great view and location
Lovely spot good modern conveninces and beautiful surroundings . Nice suggestions on restaurants etc.
Great location and quiet street
We were so pleasantly surprised by Oban and all it has to offer. Our hosts were extremely helpful and responsive. They also provided some ideas for lesser known excursions that we really enjoyed. We rented bikes from Oban Cycles and took the ferry over to Kerrera for the day. The cafe was amazing and the bikes were the way to go to see the entire island. The house was spacious and comfortable and the deck overlooking the water was great!! I would definitely recommend this house and location.
I have nothing but praise for our stay at Braemar. The house was clean, comfortable, and exactly as described. The location was wonderful with easy access to town. The view from the bedrooms was stunning, especially at night. We hope to visit Braemar again soon.
There are always plenty of things to See and Do in this pretty seaside town of Oban - no matter what time of year you visit. You can enjoy the local attractions such as the distillery, McCaig's Tower, the Seal Sanctuary in Barcaldine or the Bridge over the Atlantic and Easdale Island; and if you are looking to explore your adventurous side why not try a spot of diving, kayaking, sailing, horse riding or consternating.
As 'Gateway to the isles' there are ferries to a variety of different Islands - such as Mull, Iona, Jura and Staffa to name but a few and the buses and train that go on a regular basis from the town centre let you explore Glasgow, Fort William and all that's in between for days out.
