Oban is a great base to explore the west coast of Scotland and islands of the Inner Hebrides, with stunning scenery, boat trips, walks, wildlife-watching, castles, gardens and numerous outdoor activities all within easy reach.
Outside, there is access to a communal garden at the water’s edge, protected by a crenelated stone sea wall. The Turret has one designated parking space as well as visitors' parking.
The Turret is located on the first floor of Kilbowie House, situated a mile from the centre of Oban and set in its own grounds by the sea. The building is entered through an impressive timber-panelled hall with an ornate fireplace. There is a grand staircase up to the first floor.
First Floor Description
Once inside the apartment, there is an entrance hall leading to the living room and bedrooms. The generous open-plan living space includes a corner turret, as well as comfortable sitting and dining areas. Oak flooring makes this a light, airy space, reflecting the shimmer of the sea, and beautifully furnished in soft greys and whites with splashes of colour. It’s the perfect haven for relaxing days, watching the yachts and ferries sail by, and cosy evenings in front of the woodburning stove. The compact yet well-equipped kitchen contains all you might need to make best use of the fabulous local produce on offer in Oban.
The two luxurious bedrooms are both decorated in calming greys with crisp white linen. The en-suite master bedroom features an indulgent window seat in the bay window, somewhere to curl up with your favourite book. The bathrooms are both decorated to a high standard with walk-in showers.
Window Views Description
The turret in the living room has panoramic views towards Oban harbour to the north, the Sound of Kerrara to the south and the island of Kerrara immediately opposite. The dining area has sea views to Oban harbour. The master bedroom has a side window with sea views, as well as a bay window looking out to the woods behind. The windows in the second bedroom are etched at the lower level for extra privacy, with treetop views above.
