Polanach Cottage Argyll Family friendly Holiday Cottage for romantic breaks near a beach in Appin Oban, Argyll and Bute, Scotland


Polanach is a traditional foresters' cottage, set beside a waterfall and burn running through a large garden. There are with stunning views all round: the place for peace and quiet, yet the main tourist centres are only a short drive away.

Polanach sleeps 4 in two bedrooms: a double and a twin. The lounge has a 2-seater settee and two more easy chairs, dining table, tv and wood-burning stove. The well-equiped kitchen has fridge, freezer, oven, hob, microwave and washing machine. Another reception room has a South-facing picture window, catching the sun for most of the day. All the accommodation is on the ground floor, including the shower room / WC.

There is no mobile phone reception at Polanach but there is internet connection (Wifi or Ethanet). TV reception is very good. Polanach is all-electric, including night-storage heaters. Guests pay for exactly what electricity they use, typically between £20 and £40 per week. The wood-burning stove is available in cold weather: logs on site at small extra cost. The water supply is from the burn, fed through 2 filters and an ultraviolet lamp.

Polanach is located 2 miles North of the township of Appin, on a secluded slip-road (part of National Cycle Route 78) off the main A828. On one side of the garden is a paddock with horses, one the other a field of sheep or cattle. The stony shore of Loch Linnhe is 150 yards away. The burn, with its paddling places, is a great attraction for children. Wildlife abounds. Visits from deer are frequent and pine marten come down from the woods when tempted with a honey or peanut butter.

Local facilities are mainly at Port Appin (6 miles): a well-stocked general store and post office; a craft shop (well worth a visit); 2 hotels with restaurants; ferry to the island of Lismore. However, nearer at hand is a cafe and gift shop overlooking the picture-perfect Castle Stalker and the atmospheric Old Inn which has very good food.

The tourist centres of Oban and Fort William are within easy reach: 30 and 40 minutes drive respectively. Oban has a whisky distillery a wide variety of shops and restaurants and boat trips to Mull, Iona and Fingal’s Cave. Fort William has a array of outdoor sports and is the start of the Jacobite steam train to Mallaig, via the famous “Harry Potter Viaduct” at Glenfinnan.  Shorter drives away are Glencoe (perhaps Britain’s most spectacular mountain scenery, ideal for climbing and skiing) and the Scottish Sealife Centre at Barcaldine.
