A truly unique and unrivalled location, this beautiful Scottish land of mountains, lochs and islands can be experienced from the comfort of one of our self catering holiday cottages situated close to or on the banks of Loch Feochan, Scotland, with sea views, or our holiday cottage in North Connel with panoramic views over Loch Etive. All of our holiday cottages are very high 4 star Scottish accommodation.
Two of the cottages are situated in the peace and calm of Lerags Glen only three miles from Oban, "Gateway to the Isles" in Argyll, Scotland and one is situated 5 miles north of Oban, in the pretty village of North Connel. You have a truly great choice of accommodation from a cosy, peaceful cottage, a large holiday house suitable for house parties or family gatherings, and even your own highland croft, all with a great view and set in a haven of tranquility, guaranteed to revitalise the most world-weary guest. Only a short walk up the glen, a Country Pub can be found serving fine home-cooked food and ales.
At West Coast Cottages you'll find a warm highland welcome from resident owners Colin and Jo Mossman. Our location allows you to take full advantage of all that the west coast Highlands of Scotland has to offer, ensuring you have a memorable holiday. We are open all year and offer short breaks out of season.


Tigh Beg Croft Cottage

Tigh Beg Croft holiday cottage (sleeps 6)has to be one of the ultimate secluded Highland hideaways - there are no garden fences, only the open land and the sea to keep you in and amused. This classic 'get away from it all' location is set in some fifty acres of informal hill land and shore line giving you some spectacular walking country.

The croft and this part of the coastline were used in the 1968 filming of 'Ring of Bright Water' and more recently in the final scenes of 'Enigma', based on the Robert Harris thriller.


Grannda Mhor

Grannda Mhor is an incredibly special Scottish Cottage set back into the hillside, its full length panoramic window taking advantage of the most spectacular seascape views to the south-west across Asknish Bay to the islands of Shuna, Scarba and Jura.


In an area of great natural scenic beauty nestled between Oban and Lochgilphead, the cottage enjoys a fine prominent hillside position with spectacular views south and west over Asknish Bay to Shuna, Luing, Scarba and The Paps of Jura.

Acquired by west-coast-cottages.co.uk in 2016 and subsequently refurbished to an exceptionally high standard; Grannda Mhor combines class and quality whilst offering you all you could hope for in terms of comfort, peace and relaxation.

Comfortably sleeping 8, Grannda Mhor is available for rental all year round and is an ideal base for your self-catering holiday in Argyll.

The gardens and immediate surrounding area play host to a wide range of fauna including red squirrel, pine marten and otters playing in the bay with numerous bird species also present, which includes occasional sightings of Golden and Sea Eagles over the Bay.

A few hundred yards north of Grannda Mhor are the famous Arduaine Gardens and The Loch Melfort Hotel offering an excellent bistro and formal restaurant with incredible views to the west.

The bay at Arduaine has its own jetty for you to launch your rib or kayaks and is on the now famous west coast Sea Kayak Trail!

2.5 miles to the south of Grannda Mhor is Craobh Haven, a popular holiday and sailing village with berths for up to 250 crafts.

With a harbourmaster, marina office and store -the stunning views take in the local islands of Shuna, Seil and Luing, as well as many better-known islands from Jura in the South to the highlands of Mull in the North.

Running regularly from here are a number of excellent wildlife cruises which also take in the famous Gulf of Corryvreckan with the largest whirlpool in the world.

The village has a local shop and a highly recommended pub/restaurant 'The Lord of The Isles'.

25 minutes' drive north along the A816 coastal road is Oban, a picturesque and bustling harbour town with an array of splendid shops and restaurants to experience; known as "The Seafood Capital of Scotland" it doesn't disappoint. With fishing boats in the bay, and regular Calmac Ferries leaving for the Inner and Outer Hebrides, one visit will never be enough.
