Blackmount House

Self-catering holiday cottage, Oban



Blackmount House

A very attractive and cosy house new for 2022, situated in a peaceful and quiet area of Oban - yet very convenient being only a 5min drive to Oban town centre. It’s the perfect place to stay if you want rural, yet still close enough to the town centre with easy and cheap taxi back and forth for restaurant/pub visits. 

As you walk through into the property there is a bright open plan kitchen dining space with patio doors leading to out to the garden area, which is great for BBQs, reading, drinks and catching up on the day’s events.

The living room consists of a wood burning stove perfect for cosy nights in sampling some fine Scottish whiskey. For the summer months the living room also has the wide opening patio doors which lead on to the hot tub, outdoor bath, Sauna, and magnificent views into the countryside.

The garden area is all enclosed – perfect for guests with fury animals joining in on the fun. This large garden space also features a large 6-person wood fired hot tub an outdoor hot/cold bath and a sauna room (you may not want to leave this house!). While sitting in the hot tub enjoying a glass of bubbles you have lovely countryside views listening to the wildlife that embraces this property. Patio seating area with garden furniture – ideal for BBQs and dining Al-fresco.

This spacious house comprises of a large utility room, great for when you come back from a day of activities to hang up all your jackets, pull off those wellies and dry the animals down.

You have a great choice of walks on your doorstep, one being Glencruitten Woods. This area is a spruce plantation with a good network of forest roads, old tracks and trails and is only a 5 min walk from the house. If you fancy walking into town, it’s a pleasant 30-minute walk or a 10-minute cycle to the seafood capital of Scotland.
