The accommodation is on 2 floors. The hallway leads to a kitchen, dining area and lounge. Upstairs there is a double room with a small en suite toilet and twin room, both with sea views. The toilet and shower room is located across from the bedrooms. There is an elevated shared private outside area to the rear of the property. Island View is located directly above the popular chocolate factory café on the esplanade only a short walk from Oban’s best restaurants and bars. The property has as an associated mooring located just north of the pontoons. The mooring is bookable separately at an extra cost and subject to availability.
