Oakbank Cottage: Self Catering for 6 people
Comfortable, self-catering accommodation for up to 6 people with spectacular views of Ben Cruachan and the surrounding hills on the outskirts of the village of Kilchrenan near Taynuilt and close to Oban in Argyll Scotland.
The house is surrounded by a delightful cottage garden planted with spring bulbs, summer perennials and climbing roses. Later in the year the garden is bright with autumn colours. There are seating areas to the east, west and south of the house where coffee, lunch or afternoon tea can be enjoyed outside along with a backdrop of stunning views. Beyond the cottage garden is an informal wild woodland garden sloping down to the Kilchrenan Burn, flowing from nearby Loch Tromlee to Loch Awe a mile beyond the house.
You will be welcomed on arrival and we request that you arrive between 2pm and 5pm or by arrangement. Your host will introduce you to the house and will be happy to give further advice during your stay. A welcome pack, containing local and Fairtrade products where possible, is provided containing tea, coffee, milk, sugar, biscuits and home baked bread. Other items can be included on request at an additional cost. There is a collection of games, local books and maps in the house for your use.

20 June 2015: "We loved staying at Oakbank and couldn't
fault the facilities. About halfway home we realised we had forgotten to
write in the visitors book but our comments would have been 100%
positive. The welcome from Jo and the provisions you supplied were an
added bonus after a long drive up.
Oakbank is on our list of places to stay again"
