Tour Scotland Island Of Lismore Oban and Argyll Holiday Cottage. Idyllically set on the beautiful island of Lismore, overlooking the sea and hills of Appin, this converted steading, adjoining another property, is spacious and full of character. Surrounded by spectacular scenery, the holiday property stands just 100 yards from the passenger ferry slipway, giving easy access to the mainland with a 10-minute crossing time. There is sea fishing on the doorstep and an abundance of wildlife in its natural habitat, including otters and seals. This breathtaking island is also very popular for walking and cycling. Port Appin offers excellent restaurants with good shellfish. The popular bustling town of Oban known as the ‘Gateway to the Isles’ is half an hour’s drive.
