Tigh Beg Croft, Nr Oban, Scottish West Coast
With a view of only open land and the sea, Tigh Beg Croft holiday cottage has to be an ultimate Scottish secluded highland hideaway . This classic ‘get away from it all’ location is set in some fifty acres of foothills and and shore line giving spectacular walking country.
This idyllic 3 bedroom cottage with open log fire is quietly situated at the sea entrance to Loch Feochan, with spectacular views down the ‘Firth of Lorn’. Only six miles from the popular town and ferry port to the Western Isle, Oban with all its quality amenities, shops and restaurants.
The croft and this part of the coastline were used in the 1968 filming of ‘Ring of Bright Water’ and more recently in the final scenes of ‘Enigma’, based on the Robert Harris thriller.
Waterside Breaks is privileged to be able to offer Tigh Beg Croft as a holiday cottage and short break destination to enable all guests to totally unwind and relax. The croft has been recently renovated and completely refurbished to give you all the home comforts you would expect, making a great holiday destination at any time of year.
As you would expect from an ultimate Scottish secluded highland hideaway, access is by a private track road of about one half miles with the final approach over un surfaced track – perfect for four wheel drive, but not essential! You can also access Tigh Beg by sea.
A country pub, ‘The Barn Bar’ is situated further up the glen offering fine home cooked food and ales with informal music nights during the season.
Prices start from £590 / week for up to 6 people. Tigh Beg is always very well booked up sometimes a year in advance so it is a good idea to plan in advance to be able to enjoy such an idyllic location.
Oban – The beautiful and bustling town of Oban under 3 miles from Cologin deserves its reputation as the ‘Gateway to the Isles’. It boasts Caledonian MacBrayne’s west coast ferry port serving Mull, Iona, Colonsay, Islay and many islands in between. Its scenery is quite stunning. As the largest town in the area, Oban has three excellent supermarkets, a cinema, sports centre with swimming pool, sailing club, bowling club, tennis courts, golf course, charming shops, its own distillery, a sandy beach and a great variety of pubs and restaurants.
Isle of Mull – One of the most popular day trips from Oban is the ferry to the Isle of Mull. If you’ve got young children a visit to ‘Balamory’ is a must! Whilst Tobermory hardly needed a toddler tourism boom, the town has now accepted its starring role in the TV series. If you do go wear flat heels as all the Balamory houses are on the hill above Tobermory bay!
Fort William – About an hours drive up the coast from Oban is the Highland town of Fort William the self-styled ‘outdoor capital of Scotland’. With Britain’s highest mountain – Ben Nevis – and the munros of Glencoe there are certainly plenty of great walking, climbing, mountain biking and skiing opportunities.
Inveraray – The former ‘capital’ of Argyll, the delightful town of Inveraray lies just under 40 miles south of Oban on the shores of Loch Fyne. The current town was planned and built between 1753 and 1776 replacing the old town which was demolished to make room for the rebuilding of Inveraray Castle. The castle is open to visitors and is well worth a visit as is Inveraray Jail – a great place to take the family.
