Oban and Argyll is a place of long views, seas, mountains, skies, woods. It is a photographers heaven, a naturalists haven, a heritage buffs treasure trove, and a foodies indulgence. I have shared some of the potential adventures, experiences, activities and events on this website and On booking Kintaline guests get access to a comprehensive digital guidebook that gives lots of information about the house and the area around here, including attractions, experiences, day trips. 
This has details of fishing licences, walks, drives, places to eat, agricultural shows, highland games, and much more.

Forest walks are teeming with wildlife - the flora and fauna is wonderful - soaring eagles, beautiful butterflies, blazing gorse across the hillsides in the spring and heather in the summer, unique hazel gloves lichen from our Atlantic rainforest habitat.

West coast Sunsets are world renowned. 

Our light is ever changing, the skies seem to reach forever, and no road has the same view - you go out towards the sea and come back towards the mountains.

Whilst the Shetland islands are the mecca for those chasing the Northern lights, Aurora dancers are seen in this area too.
