This detached property is located next to a river in the west coast of Scotland and can sleep six people in four bedrooms.

Glen Euchar House is a superb detached cottage in a secluded location near to a river, just ten miles south of Oban on the west coast of Scotland. The cottage sleeps six people and has two double bedrooms, two single rooms and two family bathrooms. Also in the cottage are a fitted kitchen with an AGA, a dining room, a sitting room with a woodburner and a hot tub.

Outside the cottage is plenty of off road parking and a large lawned garden leading to the river with outdoor furniture and a barbecue. Perfect for a quiet holiday in a spectacular location, Glen Euchar House will suit a family wanting to spend time on the rugged west coast of Scotland.


Peaceful, lots of space
A comfortable and spacious house in a peaceful countryside location - beautiful views all around, and just so green. Very quiet - no traffic noise or farm machinery. A hot tub down the garden - screened by trees, with a view across the valley - what more could you want?(except I didn't manage to train the kids to bring me a glass of wine down there....) The house is well equipped. The kitchen has a vast array of crockery, glasses, pans, cutlery. There are 2 sinks, a big fridge freezer, a big gas/electric cooker, dishwasher and a washing machine. It was an easy place to have several of us cooking together. There are 2 showers but the one upstairs only fits people under 5 foot 4 - this meant I got my own personal shower as the smallest in the family. The one downstairs had a roomy shower cubicle. Outside there is a big lawn, barbecue and lots of space. The driveway is gated and the only property nearby is a well camouflaged forest lodge near the driveway. In terms of access - Oban was about 15-20 mins away depending on traffic, and the Tesco/M+S/Aldi are on the way in to town. There are plenty of places to eat and lots of things to do in the area - we easily filled a week with activities.

Wonderful stay, wonderful place
We stayed here for a week from 13th October. I wanted somewhere really special to stay for my husbands 40th birthday and Glen Euchar House did not disappoint. The house is beautiful, so comfortable and cosy. It's clearly very well looked after as are the grounds. The grounds are beautiful. Gordon the caretaker greeted us on our arrival and showed us around. Although he was at the property every day we barely noticed him and it didn?t impact on our visit at all. He clearly works very hard and appears to have a genuine affection for the place. The hot tub was fab, secluded and with stunning views. We spent a lot of time in it!! The bed was huge and so comfortable, we slept really well all week. There are lots of really nice touches throughout the house, my husband loved having the full sky package and I loved the range cooker and the Rayburn. An extremely well stocked kitchen with everything provided that you could possibly need. All in all we had such a great time, it really felt like a home from home and we were really sad to leave. But we will be back. Thank you to Gordon for all his hard work and his warm welcome and his lovely cheery greeting whenever we saw him.

We arrived at this stunning place on the 6th January the pictures do not do this stunning place justice we were met by the caretaker Gordon who had put a lovely bottle of presco in the fridge for us to bless our wedding day, cara who was lovely his dog came and said hello the grounds were beautifully kept and maintain the house was lovely and warm and clean on arrival, beautiful scenery we walked for about 45 minutes and came across lake scammerdale which was breath taking, people surrounding were so friendly and waved when they drove past while we were walking. the hot tub was amazing looking up at the stars whilst drinking preseco, the kitchen was well equipped with everything you could possibly need televisions in every room a gorgeous roll top bath and two lovely showers the birds are lovely gordon keeps the bird feeders topped up and the scenery is second to none we enjoyed our stay and the visits to oban were lush were booking again for july. thankyou john and cath kennedy xx

The photos on the site does not do this place justice it is secluded in 8acres of land with absolutely we'll maintained grounds has soon has you drive in over a fast flowing stream down a beautiful drive way that opens up is WOW,there is a log cabin that can be booked with this house to accommodate extra people but it is well hidden and they can not use your facilitys,it is spotlessly clean with good decor 4bedrooms with one with the largest beds we have been in,the kitchen has everything that you could think of with a big Rayburn stove it has full sky package with good wifi but a poor phone signal that can soon be rendered by going to the main road the hot tub is fantastic for later on perched in an isolated spot surrounded by tress over looking the stream with a music system behind you with a barbecue area ,about 20 minutes drive away is Oban we did island tours to mull Staffa Iona rib boat rides from easdale 10 minutes away,if you like sea food you have to go to the shack on the pier at Oban no frills but the best you could possibly taste.
