Located at the end of a small, quiet, private road just 7 miles from Oban Ardshellach is a very well equipped holiday home with everything required for an enjoyable stay.


Sitting room: This is a spacious, light and comfortable room which provides a panorama of Argyll scenery from its five east and south-facing windows. These were designed with low sills, to take advantage of the splendid outlook.
There are two sofas, two arm chairs and a fitted window seat across the full width of the room. The open fireplace was built by an Argyll craftsman in the soft-colour, local Bonawe granite, and this is flanked by two glass-topped coffee tables.
The bookcase contains a fine range of Scottish books, covering history, archaeology, literature, wildlife, flowers and sea life. On the window seat there is an extensive collection of maps and guidebooks for the area, and a pair of binoculars for spotting wildlife from the sitting room. In addition there is a good selection of games, television set and DVD player.

Kitchen/dining room - A splendid large room, overlooking the loch, with a breakfast bar dividing the dining room from the kitchen. The beautiful maple kitchen was hand-built by Cotteswood, and features Spanish Pueblo handmade tiles. It is excellently equipped, with a De Dietrich double oven, Neff ceramic hob, microwave with grill, and leading brand freezer, fridge and dishwasher. French windows lead from the dining room onto the sheltered terrace and garden.

Laundry room - Leading off the kitchen, and adjacent to the back door and back lobby area, this is equipped with a washing machine, tumble drier, iron and ironing board. Its furnishing matches that of the kitchen.

Twin bedroom - The ground floor bedroom has two single beds and Laura Ashley checked fabrics. It has a gentle, peaceful view over farmland and Beinn Bhreac. It is next door to the cloakroom.

Cloakroom - This has a washbasin, loo, heated towel rail, mirror and shelves and a ceramic-tiled floor.

Location & Directions

To reach Ardshellach, turn off the A85 (Tyndrum to Oban road) at Connel, 5 miles north of Oban, onto the A828, signposted to Fort William. Then, immediately after crossing Connel Bridge, turn right along the road signposted to Bonawe. Continue along the loch road in the direction of Bonawe for around 2¼ miles until you come to a sort of T junction, where the road you are on bends right, and is signposted to Ardchattan Priory and Bonawe. Keep on this, and you will shortly cross a low-sided stone bridge, followed by a beech hedge on the right. Almost opposite the hedge you will see a tarred private road to the left. Go up this road and then take first right. Ardshellach is the house at the far end on the right.
