About this property

Kilmartin 10 miles. This luxurious, modern house overlooks unspoilt Loch Awe and mountain Ben Cruachan. It's a unique opportunity to get away from it all, in the utmost comfort. Sobrachan also has a private, ten-acre semi-landscaped woodland garden, with streams, waterfalls, decorative bridges, and even a suspension bridge across its gorge, offering magnificent views down to the loch and Ben Cruchan beyond. Far from the traffic and bustle of daily life, there are glorious forest, river and hill walks from the doorstep, and the loch itself is under half a mile away. In this fairytale location, Sobrachan is finished to the highest of standards, making it an ideal stay for families, groups and couples who want a thoroughly relaxing break in one of the area's most well-appointed holiday homes. There is a large, fully equipped utility room with washer and dryer, dishwasher, fridge-freezer, supplementing a separate kitchen prep area with induction hob, two ovens and large fridge, overlooking the vast open-plan space that forms the main area of the house. There are also three different dining areas: the informal breakfast bar, perfect for drinks and snacks, a comfortable, scrubbed pine kitchen table, and the formal dining area with its exquisite antique Hepplewhite table and chairs. There is also a large open-plan lounge area, with a two huge corner sofas, a cosy wood-burning stove, large flatscreen TV and a wide array of DVDs, games and books to enjoy. Guests can even have a sing-along (or musicians can gather safe in the knowledge they won't be disturbing anyone) with a fabulous antique grand piano resting underneath the staircase. This eco-friendly house is beautifully illuminated by natural light as the walls boast floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing astounding views of the loch, mountains, and garden in every season. Sobrachan offers five zip/link bedrooms providing flexible sleeping for guests, while four of the bedrooms host immaculate en-suites and the fifth is right next to the bathroom. The Master suite has its own dressing room, floor length windows overlooking the loch, and a bath. All bathrooms have generously proportioned raindance showers. Outside, there is decking with comfortable seating for a pre-dinner drink or lunch on the terrace. From Sobrachan, some of Scotland's most beautiful destinations are easily accessible. Historic Rannoch Moor and Glencoe is an hour away, the Tayvallich peninsula with sweeping views of Jura, and Kilmory beach, perfect for bracing walks and sealife-spotting boat tours are all ideal days out, while the charming harbour town of Oban, with regular ferries to the Western isles, is a 36 mile drive. The nearest pub can be found in Kilmartin, along with an ancient church, museum and coffee shop. On way are historic Carnassarie castle, standing stones and bronze age cup and ring marks. Slightly further afield is the small but appealing town of Lochgilphead, with a variety of places to shop and eat. The Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park is also nearby, providing even more incredible scenery and opportunities for walking, cycling and wildlife spotting. Sobrachan is a spectacular house in a peaceful, historic and stunningly beautiful area of Scotland. EPC Rating: Band A

  • Lynne

    Very friendly and attentive owner. House and hot tub very clean. Glorious views across Loch Awe. Plenty to see and do in and around the area and trips to islands easy. Wonderful relaxing and fun holiday.

  • Michael

    Would recommend that further cooking/catering equipment be provided to meet the needs of providing meals for the number of occupants that the house can accommodate. In our opinion why head out to eat every day when you have rented such a lovely property ,especially when it was in celebration of meeting up with old college friends.
