27 Toberonochy, Isle of Luing (Near Oban)

We would like to welcome back a cottage on the island of Luing, near Oban, ‘No 27 Toberonochy’  after a short break from holiday lets to do some remedial work. This charming little cottage has been proving very popular with all those who have stayed here,  thanks to the thoughtful preparations by the owner.


It is complemented very nicely by a new property on this same island, ‘No 6 Toberonochy’  so if you have a larger family or group of friends wanting to have a break together this is the chance to accommodate up to eight people between these two properties which are just a short walk apart in the village.

Burns Night deals for the New year

Happy New Year to all our customers.We hope the weather will be kind to us in 2012. The next few months are likely to be cold, but the heavy snowfalls of last winter and extreme cold are not likely to be repeated. This is an ideal time to have a short break at very reasonable prices.

We have a Burn’s Supper coming up on 28th January in our little village of St Fillans so if you would like to experience a really friendly village event book Tarken Lodge (Property Ref PE43) and order tickets. All proceeds will go to Help for Heroes and we will donate the proceeds from letting the lodge. Demand for tickets is huge so book now to avoid disappointment.

Many of our properties have log burning stoves to keep you cosy and a romantic break for Valentines day could be just what you need to banish the winter blues.

The mid term break in February is an ideal opportunity for families with children to have a budget holiday. The Gondola at Aonach Mor will take you up to the snowline and you can ski or just relax in the café and enjoy the fabulous view. Roads are quieter for touring and with snow on the mountains the scenery is quite spectacular.
