Tour Scotland Ceol Na Mara Oban Holiday Cottage

Tour Scotland Ceol Na Mara Oban Holiday Cottage. Spectacular views over the Firth of Lorne towards the islands of Lismore and Mull can be enjoyed whilst relaxing in this spacious detached house, and exploring the extensive landscaped garden. It lies just 2 miles from the busy harbour town of Oban - where ferries offer popular day trips to Mull and Iona, Islay, Colonsay, Tiree, Coll and Lismore. In town, time can be spent admiring the interesting boats and watching inquisitive seals in the bay. A pleasant evening walk can be made from Ganavan to the town centre past the rocky ruins of Dunollie Castle and along the Corran Esplanade. A 5-minute stroll leads to the sandy beach of Ganavan where spectacular sunsets can be seen. A further cliff-top walk to Dunstaffnage Castle, ancient seat of the Clan Campbell is a must. For children, Oban’s Sea Life Centre offers a chance to see life under the seas including seals and otters. There are plenty of attractions in Oban, known as the Gateway to the Isles, including a good selection of shops and restaurants, as well as the Oban Whisky Distillery and McCaig’s Tower, a replica of the Coliseum of Rome that overlooks the bay. Oban’s Atlantis Leisure Centre is a great facility for the active. The Oban area hosts many events during the season with Highland Games, festivals and West Highland Yachting Week. The Isles of Lismore and Kerrera are not to be missed for walking and cycling enthusiasts. On Lismore, an abundance of wild flowers and birds can be seen, and visits can be made to the cathedral of St Moluag, Tirefour Broch, Castle Coeffin and Sailean - with its diused limekilns and cottages, the ruins of Castle Achadun and Barr Mor, the island’s highest point.
