New to West Coast Cottages 2021

Happy 2021 everyone!

Although it hasn’t started as we had hoped, we are still looking forward to welcoming our old and new guests back to West Coast Cottages when it is safe to do so.

While we haven’t had any guests, we have been busy bee’s here at West Coast Cottage collaborating with local business’s in Oban to make your stay ever better and also adding a beautiful new apartment to our properties.

So here’s what’s new to West Coast Cottages;



When you book direct with West Coast Cottages you can now add on a bottle of refreshing Barra Atlantic Gin to have waiting for you in your cottage. 

"Barra Atlantic Gin is distilled from 17 handpicked botanicals foraged from the island shores, capturing the essence of our beautiful home. Born from the island, every drop is distilled, bottled and labelled right here on the Isle of Barra".

Its our personal favourite, and the reason we are so keen to support and offer it to our guests to enjoy too.

They recommend that you serve it with grapefruit and we couldn’t agree more as it brings out the flavours of juniper, citrus and dulcet carrageen.

Perfect way to refresh yourself on a hot summers day!!

For more information please visit their website or their Instagram @isleofbarradistillers.



Why not add a hot tub and a outdoor cinema to your holiday while staying in Fechoan Bheag & Achalic Beag at West Coast Cottages.  The ideal way to relax, unwind and recharge!!

New to West Coast Cottages, our two bedroom Seaside Apartment has an enviable and superb position overlooking Oban Bay and the historic McCraigs Tower which can be seen in all its majestic glory fully lite up in its many differing colours each evening.

This apartment is fully fitted out to a high standard with all conveniences you would expect, from its spacious living and panoramic window view’s over Oban Bay and up to McCraigs tower in the background - you could just sit there and watch the world go by all day.  With one double bedroom with en-suite facilities and one twin room with separate family bathroom.

One of the main advantages of Seaside Apartment is having its own private car parking space close to the apartment.
