About the property

Scottish Hill Farm Cottage by shores of Loch Creran, near Oban, Sleeps 4-6

West Ferlochan is a well appointed 4* traditional Scottish Hill Farm cottage by the shores of Loch Creran which is designated as a Special Area of Conservation (SAC). Fully modernised in 2011, it comfortably sleeps 4-6 in two double bedrooms with an additional twin children’s bedroom. With a fully equipped and modern kitchen/diner and comfortable lounge with open fire, it makes an ideal base to explore the beautiful West Highlands of Scotland and the Scottish Isles.

The cottage is part of a 220-acre working farm which is home to the internationally known Mottistone Fold of Highland Cattle, including many Scottish Champions. There are many walks across the farm and up to Sguir Mhor which offers spectacular and panoramic views across Loch Creran to the mountains beyond. Good size utility for storing boots/coats. Open all year round and Short Breaks welcome.

great property and fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

I couldnt fault this lovely cottage and such a great time was had by all of the family from grandparents to the children of 6 and 9. It is remote location but only 15 minutes from Oban, for local ameneties for ferries to the Islands or a just a short walk to the coast itself and Loch Creran. Super clean property and comfortable place to live. Fantastic kitchen to both prepare and dine in. Great handsome neighbours of the highland cows. Would stay again .

Excellent vacation

  • 5 of 5

West Ferlochan Cottage was perfect for us. Our group was made up of 6 family members who live in Scotland, England and Canada meeting up for a vacation together. The setting of the cottage is beautiful and its location was central to places we wished to visit. The facilities were excellent, plenty of room, everything we needed in the kitchen and spotlessly clean.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! The kitchen was very well equipped, the house was cozy, and the surrounding farm was fantastic. We especially enjoyed meeting the cows and learning about them from Willie and his daughter Lyn. I highly recommend this house. Bring your hiking boots and camera--the views from the top of the hill are magnificent.

Charming;convenient to Oban; welcoming ,attentive staff

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is spacious, beautifully decorated , and has a large well-equipped kitchen.

The property manager , Sandra, met us personally and explained in detail how the appliances operated and where to buy local eggs at the Pink Store down the road.

Sally quickly responded to inquiries, and was especially helpful when directions on our phone would not load and we emailed her for last minute help.

The Hawthorne Restaurant down the road served delicious, gluten free dinners .

Very convenient!

We hope we can return very soon!
