It can be a risk returning to a place you really liked the first time, but on this occasion Melfort Pier and Harbour lived up to expectations! It is quiet above all. The appartment was clean, well equipped, warm and welcoming. It was good to be there with longer days and kinder weather. We saw an otter and a red...

Lovely place and amazing lake's view. Our cottage was ' Anchorage', very clean and with everything you need to stay cosy and comfortable. If you need a place to relax yourself and enjoy the nature that's the perfect place. Our dogs enjoy the place as well! We'll surely visit it again! Absolutely recommended.

Each flat has its own sauna and most have log burning fires; all have a great view out over Loch Melfort; even though you're only 20 minutes from Oban you feel a miles away from anywhere; not matter the weather it's easy to wind down and relax at Melfort Pier; I've been a regular visitor for over 10 years and...

Almost don't want to tell you just how beautiful this place is as I want to keep it all to myself! We had a self-catering apartment with incredible views, both out over the loch and into the little harbour. It was very clean throughout and even had the bonus of a whirlpool bathtub and a sauna! Hazel, the manager, was...

Drove here to do a site visit for a pending trip with some clients, weren't sure if there was an office so we went to the site to have a look, it was stunning and everything we were looking for, then a golf buggy styled thing came into view and we thought great, lets chat and see who we speak...

My partner and I are just back from staying in the admiral suite for two nights. Cannot say how much we enjoyed our experience. It was fantastic and we were treated excellent. Thankyou to one of the locals Olga for dropping us off at our destination. The apartment was of extreme high standards and we wanted for nothing. Returning again...

The Commodore Suite is spacious and well appointed. However, the bathroom, in particular the tiling, could use refurbishment. The sauna was well used following short walks battling against storms Barbara and Conor over Christmas 2016. FreeSat TV, wifi and a phone signal all enhanced the experience. Better weather, a barbecue on the veranda and my bike and canoe would make...

Another lovely Christmas on the loch enjoying the luxury of the house while battening down from Hurricane Barbra, eating nice food and enjoying fine wines! Excellent facilities with everything required to prepare a lovely Christmas lunch, beautiful log fire very warm and comfortable. Santa even found us! Staff warm, friendly and helpful as always. We will be back!

This is a natural harbour sheltered by mountains, in a remote area of the Argyleshire countryside. The pier is actually on private land, but there is access to the water a few hundred yards away. There is a small shop and some equipment for hire.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
On the West Coast of Scotland, just 16 miles south of Oban, the Gate way to the Isle, is Melfort. Melfort Pier & Harbour is right on the shore of one of the most beautiful sea Loch's in Scotland, where the Highlands come down to the sea.............We have 10 Scandanavian houses, all with a different lay out. Some all on one level. Other ones up stairs. Every house has a superb view of the Loch. Our main asset is our unique location,protected on the seaward side by uninhabited islands and sheltered by the hills of the Melfort wood to the North. Our high quality, self contained houses, surround our private harbour. When you are here, we provide you with privacy and the freedom and flexibility to do what every you like. We have 6 houses for the less mobile. 2 Pets per house are very welcome ... more   less
