Craobh Haven: The village and marina were built some 25 years ago; the harbour created by ingeniously joining together a few small islands with a causeway, giving a stunning walk with frequent sightings of seals, sea birds, otters and eagles. There are wonderful views to the many Inner Hebridean islands and the famous Corryvreckan, the world's third largest whirlpool. Fishing boats work from the harbour and fresh seafood can be bought straight from the boats.
The Lord of the Isles pub has been newly taken over and refurnished, serves excellent food and is a WiFi internet point. Its windows and terrace offer spectacular views across the marina's many boats and harbour to the sea and islands beyond. The perfect place to 'ooh and aaah' at the unbelievable beautiful sunsets!
The village shop is well stocked and The Giving Tree gift shop/art gallery has successful exhibitions of professional local artists' work. The Lunga Riding Stables offer natural horsemanship from beautiful Appaloosa horses.

Guestbook comments from the manager
We had a very good time here at this lovely house and the beautiful landscape around it. Also the weather was "unScottish" - sunny and warm! We went to Oban and had some amazing fish-meal at the end of the pier, also bought some local whiskey. The walk up behind Ardfern was great, even if it was one big swamp in places.
And did you know that famous 007 - James Bond shots were done here in the area, as my husband got told by another tourist. The children loved the horse-riding most! We were also glad we took the effort to go to Glencoe, even though it's a long journey for the kids - what an amazing landscape.
