About Andrew Hind
I live in Surrey with my Wife Annie
Andrew Hind purchased this House in 2004
Why Andrew Hind chose Oban
It is stunning - Well I would say that.. :) But it is and the views from the house are so beautiful. The accommodation is well set0out and we have tried to make sure all beds are of a high standard as we know that Beds can make or break a wonderful Holiday.
What makes this House unique
Views, Location and the nature.. Brilliant for all...
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Fabulous house with a wonderful location. Mr Hind was very helpful with the local knowledge and we had a great time exploring the area including his recommended restaurants. All were fabulous. It takes something when you open your curtains in the morning and see Mother Otter with her two cubs swimming and feeding just yards from the house. With the main living upstairs we also watched a fabulous Osprey at eye level fishing. The house has all the amenities to cater for a large group or family. I think they have thought of everything. Would definitely recommend.
Perfect holiday home for family celebrations..
A beautiful house tastefully decorated and very well equipped. It has everything you would need. The owners generously provide cleaning products loo paper and even a ready supply of tea bags. If you arrive and have forgotten anything it will be there to use and then replace later. We were a group of 12 extended family members. There was plenty of room for all of us in fact enough to have separate areas for each age group to do their own thing. The host us very helpful, both prior to the holiday and during our stay. When contacted got straight back to us. We had a slightly blocked drain in one of the showers and Andrew sent someone round immediately to sort it out. We had a wonderful week in a fabulous house and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a week in the beautiful Scottish hills and loch.
The house is fantastic
We had a brilliant stay at Teigh Na Breac. We were a family group ranging in age from 16-75, and everyone loved it. The house is equipped to a very high standard, and sitting on the veranda looking at the sunset was just beautiful. Everyone also enjoyed otter and seal spotting from the house.
I would definitely recommend staying here and we would love to visit again.
Honestly Beyond Exceptional!
From start to finish everything about this trip was perfect. Andrews help and support prior to our arrival was invaluable to ensuring this trip was possible, as we were a group of 12 with various logistical requirements. Beyond this, the house itself proved to be fantastic at accommodating a group our size, was in immaculate condition, and provided the perfect home away from home for our new years celebrations. No words here can help to describe the surrounding environment better than the photographs already do, other than to say this is a truly sensational place that really must be experienced. I have already recommended this to all my colleagues here in Glasgow and so too have the other guests. I very much expect I will be trying to plan a trip back to this beautiful home sooner rather than later.
Many thanks Rob for the kind words. And many thanks for looking after the house and leaving it so tidy. It’s a wonderful place to spend time with friends, thanks again you were a pleasure to deal with and I hope you do return soon. All the best Andrew and Annie
My family and I stayed here for a week at the end of October/beginning of November, made up of me and my husband with our 3 young children (age 5, 3 and 1), my brothers and their wives/families (kids aged 8, 5 and 4) and our parents in their 70s. This house is at the end of the Loch, around the hill from the quarry, but that honestly wasn’t an issue. We barely knew it was there bar a few trucks up and down the road during the day if we were home.
The outlook from the house is just breathtaking. The autumnal colours take in a life of their own and the serenity of watching seals jump and play in the water is therapy for the soul. The house is renovated to a very high standard and beautifully kept (be sure to look at the book there which shows the story of it all - quite remarkable!) The kitchen is extremely well equipped - though could do with a few more spare cupboards to store food as most are full. Most beds are comfortable- though a shame there is a reliance on so many put up beds to make the numbers up, which for a week are no comfortable. Some of the bedrooms are gallery rooms - open over the lounge and kitchen - so not ideal for children or early settlers. I’d also say that this isn’t a house for young children. We were terrified all week of them breaking something or marking something and there is stuff everywhere for them to fiddle with and explore / none of which suitable for them! Plus the pianos that they’re not allowed to touch!! The only brown water we saw (from filtration) was bath water or toilet water which didn’t bother us - the tap water was clear and delicious.
There’s plenty to do - horse riding, castles, the prison, though no boat tours this time of year - and Poppies Garden Centre nearby in Oban was a lovely place for tea. There’s nearby waterfalls to visit and beautiful walks or cycle routes too.
Andrew - the owner - was so helpful and accommodating. We never felt intended upon and when we needed something - like extra towels - it was sorted straight away.
I would have no hesitation in highly recommending this property for a Scottish break - without small kids! Simply stunning location and I’m sure in warmer months the loch can also be enjoyed a bit more!
Outstanding and Memorable
We have rented homes and have stayed in grand hotel suites around the world. This home neat Oban is especially memorable.
The location is spectacular as is the view.
It is near Oban ( 20+ minutes drive) and is centrally located in Scotland.
We used the house with our grown kids to explore the western coast of Scotland. Each evening we would return and cook a great meal in a Professional Chefs kitchen and talk about our day while watching the late summer sun set over the lock that inspired important western lititure while feasting on some of the finest seafood freshly caught off the coast of Oban.
We have travelled in over 100 countries and this is our handfew whe want to return.
If you want to experience the best od Scotland as as Scot I recommend staying here.
Thanks for the kinds words Steve, you and your family are most welcome to return anytime.
Thanks for looking after the house for us.
All the best
Tigh na Breac is situated on Loch Etive 12 miles from Oban. The Glen Etive Way starts nearby and extends 11 miles up Loch Etive to Glen Etive and Glen Coe. This is a stunning and popular walk. Oban is a busy and attractive harbour town with an excellent range of shops, supermarkets, restaurants and cinema. Known as the Gateway to the Isles, Oban has a thriving fishing industry and ferry terminal, from where you can take sightseeing day trips and ferries to many beautiful West Coast Island destinations. Within easy reach are many castles, standing stones, sea-life sanctuary, marinas, craft studios and galleries as well as other tourist attractions. Glen Coe, Inveraray Castle, Loch Awe and Loch Lomond (amongst others) are ideal day trips.
Argyll is a beautiful county with stunning countryside where lovers of outdoor activities and nature will find plenty to occupy and interest them - such as diving, kayaking, sailing, hill-walking, fishing and golf all within easy reach of the house.
