Seafield Cottage, near Benderloch, is just a 15 minute drive north from the delightful west coast fishing port of Oban. Oban is the unofficial capital of the Western Highlands. It is surrounded by the clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the Gateway to the Isles boat trips are in abundance offering wildlife, loch and island tours. Oban itself is hugely popular with visitors, set around a fabulous natural harbour, sheltered from the west winds by the Isle of Kerrera where you can enjoy spectacular coastal walks. The familiar white-and-red painted Calmac ferries constantly sail to and fro from islands of the Inner and Outer Hebrides.
Just a short distance from the hustle and bustle is a calm oasis and you can retreat to Seafield Cottage, set in a beautiful coastal location. The shores around Loch Creran are dotted with both sandy and pebbly beaches with Barcaldine Castle just close by. The district of Lorn is a stunning area where the high mountains of the highlands come right down to the sea and the views are amazing.
A short drive north takes you to the charming village of Port Appin, famed for its seafood restaurant, The Pier House. Just offshore is the Isle of Lismore, a fertile island known as the Big Garden and great for cycling and walking - further up the coast you can ski in Glencoe in the winter. Seafield is also a great base for scuba divers and sea kayak enthusiasts as the west coast waters are perfect for exploration. Whatever you want to do (or indeed do nothing!) this is a very relaxing house to hire for a holiday on the west coast of Scotland.

Driving from the south - 1 mile after leaving the village of Benderloch, the turning is very small and not obvious after a long straight stretch. It is actually the first turning left over a small bridge onto a single track road in the area of Letterwalton.
If coming from the north it is the turning on the right after the village of Barcaldine (sign posted to Eriska Hotel) and after the Appin Pottery and St Columba's Bay Twisted Wheel Cafe. Once on the single track road, count about 6 cottages up on your left hand side and go past an oak tree which is in the garden of Seafield Cottage - just past Hallival.
To get to the cottage you have to go left into an entrance by a small service road the rear of the cottages. If you get to Barcaldine Castle you have gone too far. Sat Nav is PA37 1SA.
