General

  • Coastal location 400 metres from spectacular Tralee Bay beach
  • On a seven-acre croft eight miles from Oban and the island ferry
  • Boat slipway, putting green, fly fishing and chippy within half a mile

Well now, this is a pretty spectacular spot. Highfield Holidays is a seven-acre croft about eight miles from Oban on Scotland's west coast, in a peaceful rural setting within five minutes' walk of a sandy beach. The site is by the sea with views to forests and hills, surrounded by mountains, lochs, crofts and beaches... seriously, this is a pretty spectacular spot.

It's 400 metres from the croft's main gate to Tralee Bay beach (and only 200 metres to a restaurant and the Tralee Bay chippy), 10 minutes' drive to Forestry Commission marked hiking trails, and 15 to Oban and the ferry to other Highlands isles.

The site has a modern (built in 2017) shower and toilet block with four bathrooms, each with its own shower, basin and toilet. Guests can use the boat slipway, putting green and fly fishing area of the local lodge park, half a mile away.

A café and village shop are also half a mile away; pubs and restaurants are within three miles.

Please note

Local attractions

Obvs one of your first holiday activities will be to pick up a fish supper from the nearby chippy and take it to munch on the beach, but once you're up for exploring there's a good bit to do within a short drive.

Oban, the biggest town between Helensburgh and Fort William, has plenty to do for all tastes – although you may spend much of your time just pottering about and staring at the splendid scenery... Drop into the visitor centre on the North Pier for a flavour of what to see and do: options include the Oban War and Peace Museum, events and touring shows at Corran Halls theatre, tours of Oban Distillery, and a hike around 13th-century Dunstaffnage Castle a few miles out of town.

Taking a ferry to the nearby Hebrides islands is also an Oban must; vessels leave from here for the Isle of Mull, Islay, Lismore, Colonsay, Islay, Coll, Tiree, Barra and South Uist.

Must see

  • Glencoe Visitor Centre (16.2 miles)
  • West Highland Museum (24.8 miles)
  • Treasures of the Earth (26.2 miles)
