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, plus three additional toilet cubicles and a disabled/family toilet and shower room with baby changing facilities. 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.

Thank you, Amy, for your review and feedback. Our site is too small for a play area but it does say on our website that you're more than welcome to use the one at our sister company across the road 😊

Directions

Local attractions

Being this close to the coast, it’s a given that your first outing (weather permitting) should be to toddle off to Tralee beach for a breath of salty sea air. It’ll only take you a few minutes to wander down there for a smashing stroll through the sand dunes and shingle. There’s a play park down there for the nippers and a café for a warming cup of hot choc if it’s a tad breezy.

Intrepid types can plunge deep beneath the surface here to dive the wreck of the SS Breda, a cargo ship bombed in 1940; have a word with one of the dive centres in Oban (15 minutes’ drive away) to set up scuba adventures. While you’re in Oban you can read a bit more about the area’s wartime history at the Oban War & Peace Museum and raise a toast to a calmer future with a dram at the Oban Distillery.

When you’re done with town time, make for Dunstaffnage Castle (15 minutes’ drive), a ruined waterside castle with some cracking sea views. You’ll get heaps of sea views on a Sealife Adventures boat trip round the Firth of Lorne (40 minutes) too – and with any luck, you’ll also be treated to sightings of dolphins, seals and basking sharks.

Must see

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