About the property

Tigh Bhan Studio is beautifully designed with vaulted ceiling, wood burning stove and bright colourful furnishings. The bedroom has a king sized bed with bath and shower en-suite. It has its own private garden and decking area from which to enjoy the garden birds and occasional visit from red squirrel and pine martin.

The Studio is located in a quiet country lane leading to the enchanting Cuil Bay with its beautiful sunsets, dramatic coastline and wide variety of wild life . The Studio is also ideal to use as a base to explore the wider area such as Fort William, Glencoe, Oban and the islands. As well as cycling or walking along the cycle paths which take in some of the West Coasts most breath taking scenery.

Tigh Bhan Studio is truly a place where you can relax and unwind and just enjoy being.

About The Owner

Although we both originate from Worcester I spent most of my childhood holiday up in Aberdeen, decided some 27 years ago to move to Scotland, worked in Edinburgh and lived in Fife for three years then moved to Inverness lived there for 15 years then moved to set up a bed and breakfast down on the west coast near Glencoe, fort William and Oban, Tighbhan in Duror is our location. This is what we came to Scotland to do some 27 years ago now living the dream, the self catering studio is a new part of the B&B business

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2006

Cosy and well located

  • 5 of 5

The owners were friendly and helpful. The studio was clean and well laid out. We travelled around the locality easily and saw some stunning sights. We had a pine marten who came to eat peanut butter on the patio along with a friendly vole and many species of birds. Good location for island trips from Oban, Loch Ness, a seal sanctuary and Fort William.

Comfortable well equipped house

  • 5 of 5

Delightful accommodation, great decor, comfy bed and sofa. Perfect - but blackout blinds on the velux window would be great!

Great studio in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Loved our stay in this studio. It was very cosy and clean. It was nice to have a bathtub to soak tired muscles after hiking. There is a small wood burning fireplace if it gets cool. There is a lovely private garden area where you can sit if the weather is nice. Very quiet and peaceful at Tigh Bhan Studio. There is a rocky beach area just a short walk down the quiet road. Great location for exploring Fort William, Glencoe, Glenfinnan and Oban. I would highly recommend this studio to anyone planning on staying in this area.
