Overview

About the property

views from apartment over the bay to islands of kerara, lismore & mull

Argyll Mansions is an imposing sandstone Victorian building with a prominent waterfront position. Beautifully presented and spacious, this three bedroom apartment oozes charm and elegance. You will not be disappointed staying in our luxury apartment. It sleeps up to five, so is large enough for a family but is cosy enough for two and is centrally situated on the third floor of the prestigious, Category B listed building. Built between 1905/07, Argyll Mansions has been described as “one of Scotland’s finest tenements” and represents a late work by architect William Leiper, with stunning panoramic views over Oban Bay and the islands beyond of Kerrera, Mull & Lismore.

Everything is on your doorstep, from Oban’s many renowned restaurants in the town and surrounding area to its many curio shops and streets to keep you busy and entertained. There is also a two screen cinema and a leisure centre. Or you might enjoy taking a walk down to the beaches at Ganavan, or a short ferry trip to the Island of Kerrera with its very own castle, and in summer a Tearoom! Oban is known as the "Seafood Capital of Scotland" with a fishing boat fleet in the bay, a good range of seafood restaurants and an excellent fish shop, and it is also known as the “Gateway to the Isles” with its busy Calmac ferry terminal for trips to Mull, Colonsay, Mull, Tiree, Lismore and Barra.

Views to die for

  • 5 of 5

We were very lucky to win a competition to stay for one night in this apartment. Unfortunately we only wish we had more time off work to extend our stay as we soon felt at home. Oban is not a huge place but this apartment is central with views to die for. Samantha who the booking was with couldn't have been more helpful a personal thank you to her. The place was well presented, immaculate and seemed to have everything you would want including alternative family entertainment in board games if bad weather made you stay indoors. The kitchen seemed to have everything you would need, washing machine, tumble dryer, dish washer, the list is endless. The visitors pack was warm, welcoming with all the information you would require for a safe stay and all the instructions for appliances. The apartment is on the third floor and is only accessible by stairs so if you are not the smallest of packers keep this in mind. There is no direct parking facilities for this apartment and in Oban generally it can be a nightmare it is well worth doing your homework before you go.

Just want to say thank you for a most enjoyable stay at Argyll Mansions. The apartment was in a lovely setting overlooking Oban bay. Fantastic views from bedrooms, living room and great views to McCaigs tower from dining area and kitchen. Lovely warm and very inviting coming in from the cold. Well equipped apartment, thought of everything. Would highly recommend and use again.

Great Location and a Lovely Apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment on two occasions for a total of about three weeks. The living room and two main bedrooms have fantastic views over the centre of Oban harbour. The apartment is furnished to a very high standard and has all conveniences needed for a comfortable stay.

The owners are extremely attentive and contacted us to ensure we were comfortable.

We will stay at Argyll Mansions again.

Excellent flat in great location with fantastic views over Oban bay; perfect for exploring Oban and the surrounding countryside. Would definitely recommend this holiday flat and hope to come back soon - our stay was too short.
