This is a self contained loft in a 300 year old farm building. It is 50m from the beach with direct access to the beach. There is no public road between you and the shoreline - very private! The views are spectacular and the kitchen is very well equipped. Perfect for hiking or skiing the mountains, kayaking to the seal colony or cycling, walking or horse-riding along The Caledonia Way/National Cycle Network.

The space
It is a converted loft in a listed farm building. It is on a private estate and has direct beach access and amazing view of the sea.

The main bedroom has a super king size double bed which can also be set-up as two singles. A further single bed can be set-up in this larger bedroom so that it sleeps three people in total.

The second bedroom has a super king size double bed which can also be set-up as two singles.

We provide luxury quality towels and bed linen for use during your stay. We will also supply some seperate beach towels which we don't mind going in the sand and salt water.

Location

Port Appin, Scotland, United Kingdom

Port Appin is very peaceful and surrounded by the sea and mountains. It's at the end of a single track road so doesn't receive so many tourists. There is a small co-op for buying food 500m away and a few restaurants nearby

Steeped in the history of the Appin Stewarts and nearby Castle Stalker, Robert Louis Stevenson based his novels Catriona and Kidnapped on the story of the murder of The Red Fox of Glen Ure in the Appin area. Built in 1320 it sits in the loch watching over the local residents.

Scenic horse trekking is available locally (March to October) to enjoy the scenery.

Take a sea trip out of Oban to view whales, seals and dolphins (in season) or just enjoy a big bag of fresh, locally caught fish and chips in the harbour of Oban or sitting on the beach at Ganavan sands.

Fort William with its skiing, mountain biking and hiking are a 45 minute drive from the cottage while Oban is accessed by car in 25 minutes. From here you can take ferries to all the other islands such as Jura or Mull.

Highland Games, hiking challenges, motor rally, the world cup stone skimming championships - these are just some of the local events throughout the year.

I am from Scotland and live with my English wife. We are based between the UK and Myanmar and travel between them all the time. I spend my time in Myanmar working on electrification: 40 million people still don't have a reliable source of electricity. My wife has a company, Kalinko Homeware, which supports artisans and communities in rural Myanmar, exporting and retailing Burmese homeware and textiles to the West. We love travelling, eating, the outdoors and we couldn't live without some time at our home in Scotland to relax.
