Benderloch is a small village just north of Oban, with a wonderful cafe (Ben Lora Cafe), grocery shop (open till ten!), petrol station and a large sandy beach (Tralee). There is also a wonderful forest walk to Ben Lora, which has simply stunning views over the Firth of Lorne and the Islands of Lismore and Mull.

The Scottish Sealife and Marine Sanctuary is nearby. Sealife Safaris and marine adventure trips for all the family are also available just a few minutes away from the cottage.

There is an abundance of wildlife, rare butterflies and wild flowers with lovely shoreline walks.

Oban is just 15 minutes away and is a bustling harbour town with ferries departing regularly for the inner and outer hebridean islands. Mull, Iona, Staffa and Fingals Cave can all be visited in a day trip. Duart Castle and Torosay Castle can be visited by ferry from Oban. Delightful and easy walks can be had (or bicycle if you prefer) on the enchanting Isle of Lismore.

Seafield looks directly onto Oyster Bay in Loch Creran, and the area is naturally famous for its magnificent seafood, with excellent restaurants in both Oban and to the north in Port Appin. Just close by there is the famous deluxe Isle of Eriska Hotel.

Music abounds around Oban, with a culture of celtic sounds.
