Rose Cottage

Oban, Argyll, Western Scotland


Heavenly Highland estate

Be transported into another realm at this stunning getaway on the rugged and beautiful west coast of Scotland. Part of the sprawling and majestic Ardtornish estate, Rose Cottage will be your idyllic home away from home. This property has been a temporary home to many writers and artists, and when you see its lovely setting you’ll see why. The grounds are truly breathtaking, and you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to deciding how to spend your days there.

The Location

Located in Morvern, the estate is spread out around the gorgeous Loch Aline, surrounded by woods. The 35,000 acre property includes the main mansion house as well as seven loch or river side traditional stone cottages. The amount of available outdoor pursuits on the estate is staggering – think kayaking or mountain biking. The sparkling rivers are ideal for fly fishing, while the glens are just waiting to be discovered on foot as well as the many walks within the woods or along the loch – guided walks are available.

If arriving by air, Glasgow Airport is a 3 hour drive away. Fort William, approximately a 1 hour 20 minute drive, is home to the nearest railway station.
