In a spectacular position, close to the shores of Loch Linnhe with panoramic views over the loch to the mountains of Kingairloch beyond, this charming semi-detached cottage is part of the original ferryhouse dates from c. 1870. With a fascinating historical background, the ferryhouse has been sympathetically modernised to create a holiday home of unique character with many original features. This 2 bedroom cottage has been recently refurbished and has a lounge and a sun lounge with fantastic views over Loch Linnhe. There is a double and twin bedroom for up to four guests. The bathroom has both bath and an electric shower. There is off road parking space for 2 cars There is an enclosed garden to the front and rear where a path leads down onto the beach. Situated 50M from the local store and within walking distance of two award winning restaurants, this accommodation offers an outstanding base from which to explore the local attractions of Argyll.
The very picturesque village of Port Appin is an ideal base for exploring and Oban is within a 40 minute drive. Day trips can be enjoyed to Glencoe and Fort William or by taking the passenger ferry from Port Appin across to the island of Lismore. Cycle and boat hire can be arranged locally and other activities include fishing, pony trekking and hill-walking. The village shop is 30 yards from the property and there are two excellent restaurants nearby.
