Its a great base for a quiet peaceful holiday, and also for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits from walking, kayaking, sailing, fishing, cycling (hire bikes on Luing and enjoy the beautiful, quiet island) bird watching and photography. There are local walks from within the village and a slate beach to enjoy skimming stones on. The village has a pub/restaurant, small playground, museum and harbour where you can take boat trips out to the Corryvrekan Whirlpool and the surrounding Inner Hebrides. Take the local small ferry to neighbouring car free Easdale Island only a few minutes ferry trip away and treat yourself to a coffee and cake at The Puffer Cafe/Pub and just watch the world go by! . Rockpool Cottage is right next door to Seashell Cottage and is pretty much iidentical to Seashell Cottage. If we are booked try Rockpool Cottage for availability More
House Rules
Pets Allowed: Yes
Smoking Allowed: No
Kid Friendly: Yes
I generally allow 2 dogs in the cottage depending on size. However we would ask that owners of our furry friends leave the cottage as you found it and that the blankets provided are used on the sofa if they are likely to jump up on them. Thanks for respecting the house rules. This is a semi detached cottage and people must be aware of their neighbours, so we ask that there are no parties in the property. Thanks

We highly recommend Seil Cottage. It is stylish but also homely (and very clean). Has all modern appliances and is well heated. We really appreciated it yesterday after a wet, wet walk on Liung island! Owner is very friendly and helpful.

Truly wonderful cottage in the beautiful village of Ellenabeich. Well furnished and ideally situated for the Oyster Bar, Easdale, Golf Course and Oban. This place has everything including super quick WiFi. I believe next door is pretty good too. 5 star rating for me.

About the neighbourhood
Ellenabeich has craft shops, a bar which also serves meals and the An-Cala Gardens which is part of Scotland's garden scheme. We also have a Heritage Museum that depicts the way of life when the area was a thriving Slate Quarry Industry. Four miles along the road is 'Tigh an Truish' Hotel/Pub and the famous 'Bridge Over the Atlantic' built in 1792 and described as the only bridge that crosses the Atlantic. This bridge connects the mainland to the Isle of Seil where Ellenabeich is situated. The ferry ride from the old slate pier to Easdale Island takes only a few minutes and transports you to another world where there are no cars, just natural paths that criss-cross the Island. The pub and restaurant are the centre of the Island's active and varied social life and the award winning Folk ...
