The Boathouse description

In a truly unique location on the beautiful Isle of Kerrera, this detached holiday cottage enjoys an idyllic seaside setting. Well furnished and equipped, The Boathouse is perfect for nature lovers, sea kayakers, groups of walkers, bird watchers and anyone who loves remoteness and extraordinary scenery. It is ideal for relaxation in the day where you can watch the goings on at the marina just in front of the house, or in the evenings when you can look across to the lights of Oban, and if you are lucky, catch the Northern Lights in the winter. The owners will collect guests, food and luggage from the town pier. Guests are welcome to bring their own boats (by arrangement) and moor them at the marina. The layout and facilities make it ideal for families or friends wishing to share a holiday. Kerrera has a very small shop. Whilst situated on an island it enjoys the benefit of a peaceful location but is only a few minutes’ ferry ride to the bustling harbour town of Oban (known as the ‘Seafood Capital of the UK’) with its restaurants, shops, tourist attractions and access to Argyll and the Inner Isles. Shop 100 yards (Apr-Sep).
