Dockmaster is right on the shores of Loch Melfort and is very well equipped for a relaxing break - the sauna, spa bath and log fire adding a great level of comfort! This is a very peaceful and idyllic part of Argyll with lots to do in the area - although many people just relax by the loch and enjoy the fantastic views of Loch Melfort from the patio. The house is suitable for disabled visitors too (Cat 2) and there is also an electric wheelchair available at no charge.
The area has great hill walking, wildlife watching, biking and wonderful beaches. You can fish off the ancient pier, or use the row boat or canoe, all free of charge. With good shopping in Oban 16 miles away, castles and gardens to explore, and island hopping this is an ideal base for touring all of Argyll. There are a number of excellent restaurants and pubs nearby serving the excellent local produce.
Dogs very welcome, as are children of all ages - and it is also ideal for a romantic break too. You can also bring your boat, kayak or canoe - this is a beautiful part of the west coast and idyllic for pottering around on the water!
