Tour Scotland Jura Kilmelford Oban and Argyll Holiday Cottages. Close to the head of Kimelford Loch, on a quiet single-track road, this comfortable renovated ground floor apartment is situated in a farm steading which dates back to the 19th century and boasts its own garden. Adjoining the owner’s home, Jura is well placed for exploring Argyll and its Isles; there are numerous pursuits available locally, including riding, boating, water sports and loch fishing. Kimelford has a good hotel and a marina. The vibrant town of Oban (15 miles) is the centre for ferries to the Western Isles; day trips to Mull or longer trips to Islay can be enjoyed. Sandy beaches and many coastal villages and peninsulas can be explored along the Argyll coastline.
