Because of the situation of the Boathouse, it is not suitable for children under 10.

Taynuilt (8m) has small shops including an excellent general store. Tesco deliver to Achnacarron Farm 100 meters from the Boathouse (a mobile number is needed for the driver).


The area

For such a quiet and peaceful place you are nevertheless spoiled for choice for nearby eating places, such as the Taychreggan Hotel on the lochside. Just a little further up the road, for something very special, you also have the choice of the Ardanaiseig Hotel, one of the most prestigious in the country - a gastronomic experience not to be missed.

The cottage also makes an excellent base for the many things there are to do in the area. The loch itself offers fishing and sailing, speak to Cliff at Lochawe boat yard and there are walks of all levels of difficulty to be enjoyed in the surrounding mountains. For wet weather entertainment, you can go right inside one of them from the Cruachan Visitor Centre and see the hydro-electric station that was built in the heart of that mountain. Taynuilt (8m) has small shops (including an excellent general store), an hotel and a golf course and is on the shores of lovely Loch Etive where you can also visit the old Bonawe Ironworks.

There are superb beaches at Benderloch (turn north across Connel Bridge on the way to Oban), while Oban itself is a bustling port with all facilities including a rail station and from there you can take all kinds of boat trips, either to the islands or to view the marine wildlife in the surrounding waters. A particularly scenic, if slower route from Taynuilt to Oban is the back road through Glen Lonan.
