The gorgeous five thatched cottages which make up Clan Cottages are sympathetically designed to integrate and blend with the surrounding landscape and are built to recreate a Celtic settlement - a perfect reflection of Scotland's past. They are situated on the the shores of Loch Nell and the River Nell, a stunning and very peaceful location within a 6 minutes drive from Oban and all its amenities. Each cottage can sleep 2 - 6 visitors in luxury accommodation. The group of cottages includes a one bedroom cottage with a beautiful mezzanine lounge - perfect for honeymoon couples. There are also three 2 bedroom cottages, one which has been designed and built to suit anyone who has mobility problems, and one three bedroom cottage.
The area is blessed with an abundance of wildlife and it is the ideal location for fishing, walking, hill climbing, cycling, swimming in the loch and river, and exploring the archaeological features of the area. Camera and binoculars are a must! The location is also an ideal base for exploring Argyll and the islands. The ferry leaves from Oban daily to visit Mull and Iona and a number of other Hebridean islands as well.
Kilmore is a vibrant community with an annual Highland Games which attracts top athletes and dancers. The church dates back to 1876 but there are also ruins of the original church built in 1450. There are several other historically important sites in the area including crannogs in Loch Nell and a Serpents Mound burial cairn on the shores of the loch. Argyll has some glorious gardens to visit as well as castles and distilleries. The Oban area is a perfect part of Scotland for a self-catering holiday - and these stunning thatched cottages are just idyllic!
