Pitsruan is a fabulous large holiday house set in an idyllic location in Argyll. This is an exceptional holiday retreat - a secluded house set within private grounds at the top of Loch Feochan. Situated at the edge of the sea loch, the views over the loch and surrounding hills are magnificent. It is tastefully decorated and thoughtfully equipped - perfect for a large group or families on holiday together (it sleeps 10).
This is a perfect location for a highland holiday - there is even a babbling brook at the bottom of the garden! Just relax and watch the wildlife and birds on the loch - it is a ideal highland hideaway for a break from your busy everyday life. You can walk up the glen to an excellent pub with good food and ales if you don't want to cook on your self-catering holiday or it's close enough to Oban to get a take-away!
There is so much to see and do in this part of the Scottish highlands - the outdoor activities are legendary: you can go on wonderful walks from the doorstep with rarely another person seen. Nearby Oban is a picturesque harbour town where you can get a ferry to the isles - Mull is an easy day trip and children will love to visit Tobermory (the real town of Balamory). Argyll's gardens are glorious and many of them are within easy reach of the holiday cottage. There are lots of historic houses and castles to explore and the area also offers horse-riding, golf, sailing and diving. The empty, sandy beaches are perfect for building sandcastles and swimming in the blue sea on a good day.
