The cottage is a luxury open plan design with its own large balcony and landscaped garden, both accessed from a sliding patio door. Very well equipped fitted kitchen with dishwasher, fridge, coffee machine, induction hob and oven. Spacious living space with large windows to take advantage of the stunning panoramic views. Designer lighting gives you full control over creating the perfect mood in the cottage. The bedroom has a king sized bed with unique solid oak headboard that is backlit to create a romantic glow. The ensuite wetroom includes a cascade waterfall shower, heated tile floor and features a demisting mirror. The cottage was completely renovated in 2018 with the aim of providing luxury accommodation for two people. Large picture windows flood the modern open plan design with natural light. Carefully chosen furniture and fittings throughout provides the comfort necessary after a day spent exploring this wonderful part of the world. The wall mounted 65 inch smart TV with freeview in the living area includes Netflix to ensure there is plenty of entertainment should a wet day make you decide to wait indoors. You can even continue watching the late night film on the second TV in your bedroom. There is free WiFi throughout the cottage. A separate utility room provides you with an extra toilet and automatic washing machine. A sink allows you to clean and dry muddy boots ready for the next days walking. The cottage has a marked parking space for one vehicle. It directly overlooks the famous tidal race known as the Falls of Lora with excellent views of Loch Etive and Ben Cruachan. It really is a special experience looking out from the cottage onto the Falls, particularly when kayakers are disappearing as they challenge the frothing currents and whirlpools! From the other picture window in your living area the view of Loch Etive as it extends towards Ben Cruachan in the distance encapsulates all that is special about the West Highlands. More

About the neighbourhood
There are many interesting walks, boat trips and other outdoor activities in Connel and the surrounding area. It is easy to join the Oban to Fort William walking/cycle track directly from the cottage. Within the village of Connel there is a very well stocked village shop and two hotels with good quality restaurants and bars. Should it be required a doctors surgery is opposite the cottage. The nearby well known harbour town of Oban. (often called the Gateway to the Islands) provides ferry services to many Hebridean Islands. The town also has a Golf Course, Leisure Complex including Tennis Courts,Swimming Pool and Bowling Green. During the main tourist months many leisure/fishing boat trips depart from the town.
Getting around
Connel village has a train station on the Oban to Glasgow route with six trains a day. This is an easy ten minute walk from the cottage. The main bus stop is only fifty metres from the cottage on the opposite side of the road with a regular service that covers both local and further afield routes. If necessary there are several firms that hire cars in nearby Oban. For those wishing to experience the unique qualities of the Hebridean Islands regular ferries depart from Oban to a wide variety of them. In this part of the world whilst a car is not essential having one available certainly gives you the freedom to fully explore the wonderful countryside.
