Holiday Rental House
This is one of the most stunning areas to visit in the West of Scotland, if not in the whole of Scotland. All five properties have spectacular alpine views of Loch Etive, Ben Cruachan and surrounding mountains. This 250 year old traditional 3 bedroom detached croft house has been sympathetically modernised over the years to retain many traditional and period features; it does contain the odd low flying beam and door lintel! From its elevated position it has unbelievable sea loch and mountain views from all rooms. There are patios front and back in a large enclosed mature garden which surrounds the house on three sides and attracts many species of birds and animals and is ideal for barbeques, sun bathing, relaxing and admiring the views. The beach is 1km away and can be accessed via ...This is one of the most stunning areas to visit in the West of Scotland, if not in the whole of Scotland. All five properties have spectacular alpine views of Loch Etive, Ben Cruachan and surrounding mountains. This 250 year old traditional 3 bedroom detached croft house has been sympathetically modernised over the years to retain many traditional and period features; it does contain the odd low flying beam and door lintel! From its elevated position it has unbelievable sea loch and mountain views from all rooms. There are patios front and back in a large enclosed mature garden which surrounds the house on three sides and attracts many species of birds and animals and is ideal for barbeques, sun bathing, relaxing and admiring the views. The beach is 1km away and can be accessed via the owners own private road. Accommodation consists of: large sitting room (bay windows, open fire & piano), upstairs family double room with king size bed, toilet on landing next to double room, kitchen, sun lounge/dining area, downstairs twin room, bathroom (separate shower), upstairs twin room (not suitable for very young children). Large porch with room for bikes, buggies, coats, wellies and wet (happy) dogs! Dogs must not be left unattended in the property at any time. Heating/hot water is supplied by an oil boiler and there are electric storage heaters plus a real fire place in the sitting room. Oil and electricity is included in the rental (please supply own fuel for open fire). Wifi is available and included in the price. Cot available free of charge (bedding not supplied). All our properties are non-smoking.Brolas was originally two croft houses, which over the years have become one large house. This accounts for the layout inside. At one end a sitting room with the double room above it and at the other a bunk room with the twin room above it. The upstairs bedrooms have coomb ceilings and dormer windows, the double has velux windows as well. In the middle downstairs is the kitchen with sun room leading off it. Each side has it's own stairs. The stairs to the twin room are steep with a stair gate fitted and are not suitable for unsupervised children. Brolas has been in our family for generations and is part of a working croft with tractors and animals. We would ask that our guest bear that in mind. The stables and outbuildings contain farm implements/machinery and are out of bounds to guests. We do have five properties to choose from; you have the choice of a cottage style apartment, 3 bedroomed cottage or 3 new log cabins. If you need to book more than one or fancy something different just click on 'see more properties'.More

Brolas was a lovely with great views. We enjoyed the surrounding area and that Oban was only a short journey away so that we could use the ferries and explore the islands. Would recommend the house as an excellent place to stay.

Fantastic week, sunshine every day. Yes Sunshine!! Watched the sunrise every morning from the dining room/sunroom. Fabulous location for exploring the west coast. Oysters in Oban, Loch Fyne whiskey shop in Inverary. What's not to like.

About the neighbourhood
Our properties are approximately a mile away from the centre of Taynuilt. Which is an easy walk or cycle away or a quick drive in the car. Taynuilt itself offers you an excellently stocked village store, with a variety of top quality produce. There is also a Hotel, Post Office, a butcher, tea room, hotel and hairdresser. There is really no reason to travel to Oban, for major supermarkets, as just about everything you need can be bought in the village. The nearest Petrol Station is just 2 miles away. In the village there is also a tennis court to hire, large football pitch, golf course and childrens play park all within a mile. Any trip by foot, road, rail, water or air will offer you unbelievably spectacular views.
Getting around
Most people travel up by car but we do have visitors that come up by rail. We are just a mile from the railway station. We can most times be around to pick you up. A lot of our visitors choose to hire a car as the buses and trains although regular do not run as often as in a city! Cyclists have miles of quiet country road to explore, including a brand new cycle route from Oban to Fort William with large sections of free of motor traffic.
