Grannda Mhor is a newly refurbished luxury four-bedroom house in Arduaine, on the west coast of Scotland, with absolutely stunning views across Asknish Bay. Set back on the hillside with sea views south and west, an incredibly social space- ideal for multigenerational families or couples looking for a retreat. An ideal base for a self-catering holiday in Argyll.
Set in an area of great natural scenic beauty, between Oban and Lochgilphead, Grannda Mhor has views south and west over Asknish Bay to Shuna, Luin, Scarba and The Paps of Jura. Just a few hundred yards north of the house are the Arduaine Gardens and the Loch Melfort Hotel with its excellent bistro and restaurant. The Bay at Arduaine has its own jetty where you can launch your rib or kayaks. The village has a local shop and pub, The Lord of the Isles. 2.5 miles south is Craobh Haven which is a popular holiday and sailing village. It has a harbourmaster, marina office and store, and a number of excellent wildlife cruises run from here, some of which take in the famous Gulf of Corryvreckan with the largest whirlpool in the world. The picturesque and bustling harbour town of Oban is 25 minutes drive north along the coast road.
There’s masses to do in the surrounding area, for all interests and ages. Oban itself is a centre point for activities and there are lots of things to do in and around it.
