Perched high on a hill above what many consider to be the finest view in the west coast of Scotland sits Appin Bay View. A 180 degree view takes in not only sea lochs, islands and mountains, but a bona fide 13c Medieval Castle. ( Fans of Monty Python and the Holy Grail will be familiar with Castle Stalker, but alas the French Knights are no longer in residence!) A private villa for over 30 years, the views and gardens were closed to the public, but with the house fully refurbished we are now delighted to share them with our guests.
Appin Bay View is perfectly situated between Glencoe , the most dramatic of the Scottish Glens and Oban, the gateway to the Isles where Calmac ferries sail back and forth and some of the worlds best seafood is on sale.
The Village of Port Appin is only 2 miles away and features two international class restaurants, both serving the very best of West Coast seafood. Port Appin is also the place to catch the ferry to the nearby island of Lismore, where visitors can enjoy some quite beautiful walks.
Nearer to home, our local pub The Old Inn is 132 steps from the house ( perhaps a few more on the way back!) and serves some of the finest highland steaks ever cooked. The pub is over 300 years old and reputed to be very very haunted.
In winter we are only 20 miles from the Nevis range ski centre and 17 miles from the Glen Coe Ski Lifts. Some of the best winter walking anywhere can be found around Lochaber, and when you come back to Appin Bay View, you can have a fantastic hot shower, jump in to our fluffy bathrobes and snuggle down under your cozy duvet and admire the mountains with a coffee or a glass of wine.
Summer or winter we look forward to looking after you at Appin Bay View.
