Tour Scotland Laurel Tree Taynuilt Argyll Holiday Lodge. These truly excellent Scandinavian style lodges, 30 metres above the River Awe and just half a mile from the Bridge of Awe have unspoilt views of the river and surrounding mountain scenery. Graded as 5 star holiday accommodation by STB, they are only 14 miles from the bustling harbour town of Oban, the Gateway to the Isles, and just 2 miles from the thriving small village of Taynuilt, Argyll. They are surrounded by wildlife, golden eagles and buzzards which are often seen, or more adventurous visitors can spend a day on the seas dolphin spotting. Catch a ferry from Oban to the Isle of Mull, one of the Inner Hebrides, where visits to Torosay Castle or the colourful town of Tobermory are possible. Inveraray, Glencoe and Fort William, the ‘Outdoor capital of the UK’, are all within easy reach and promise a memorable day out. Close by there is plenty to see and do for all ages from exploring the historic Bonawe Ironworks, venturing inside the hollow mountain at Cruachan, watching the seals at the Sea Life Centre, playing a round of golf, visiting one of the many beautiful gardens, fishing or canoeing, cycling some of the many forest tracks, hill walking, birdwatching or lazing on the beach. This is truly a place where guests will be spoiled for choice.
