This wonderful property nestles in a tranquil position and enjoys splendid mountain scenery and views of the enchanting Isle of Seil. A perfect rural retreat for families and groups.

Perfect for a large family or group of friends, with up to two doggie pals also welcome, this wonderful spacious house has spectacular views. Near to the beach for carefree walks, it is set close to the largely undiscovered island of Seil, one of the Slate Islands that are said to have roofed the world. Seil is separated from the mainland by a narrow strip of water crossed by the humped 18th-century Clachan Bridge, locally known as the Bridge Across the Atlantic.

Within this fabulously roomy house, you will find a large and welcoming lounge. Equipped with an open fire, comfy furniture and TV/DVD, this beautiful room is perfect for you and your dogs to relax, offering fantastic rural vistas. The open-plan kitchen/diner is well-equipped for all your culinary needs, while hard floors are ideal for muddy paws. Outside, you can enjoy the large enclosed garden – ideal for you, your children and your four-legged friends – while appreciating the views of the spectacular scenery.

Seil island's main village of Ellenabeich (5 miles) is a picturesque location which has featured in several films and TV shows. The village's main attractions include the gardens of An Cala and the Scottish Slate Islands' Heritage Centre. Seil also boasts a golf course and popular yacht anchorage at Phuilladobhrain and Balvicar (3 miles). Within 13 miles lies the charming seaside town of Oban, with its colosseum-like McCaig’s Tower, from where you can take boat trips to Mull (39 miles), Staffa, Iona and the Treshnish Isles. Closer to home, less than half a mile across the bridge is the dog-welcoming Tigh-an-Truish Inn (house of the trousers), the name dating from when kilts were once banned. Be aware of sheep in the area; but your dogs will love to run free on the beach.

Beautiful house in a beautiful setting but the house and garden are in need of some tlc. The garden is not fully enclosed and the grass through the gates at both cattle grids is waist height resulting in our dogs getting ticks when taking them for walks. With a little tlc this could be five star.

A spacious, warm house in a great location. However, we felt that it was in need of refurbishment to make it a truly relaxing place to be.

Beautiful house. Very clean and spacious with everything we needed. Special consideration for those with limited mobility with the inclusion of an electric riser chair and a seat in the downstairs ensuite shower. Driveway a bit steep but managed ok in a small electric buggy. House is set in a superb location. Walking distance to pub which serves faRead moreb food, near boat trips and plenty of walks to do from the doorstep. Hide

Clachan, near to the 'Atlantic Bridge' to the island of Seil and about 20 minutes' drive south from Oban, is a very comfortable and well-equipped house in a wonderful location in a beautiful part of Argyllshire. Ideal for families up to 8 people.

A beautiful and well equipped house just up the road from the "Atlantic Bridge". The main highlights for us were the very light and spacious lounge, comfortable beds and a huge bath. In a very quiet location, but a short drive for Oban. Highly recommended
