Less than 2 miles from Seil's famous Bridge over the Atlantic, Ealachan Bhana is a stylish one and a half storey apartment that lies to the side of the owner’s property. This newly designed apartment is spacious and bright with double aspect views across the garden, woodland and countryside to Balvicar Bay. There is ample parking for two cars (and boat etc) off the main house driveway.
The accommodation is over two floors and consists of a ground floor open plan living area with kitchen and dining. The kitchen is well equipped with full size electric hob and double oven, microwave, toaster and integrated fridge with ice-box. A welcome pack is provided for arrival. The living area has a comfortable good sized sofa which if needed easily converts to an additional full sized double bed. The apartment includes a 32” flat screen television with satellite TV including Cinema, Box Sets and Sports packages. There is also a DVD player and wi-fi internet access (fibre-optic).
Upstairs there is a comfortable and airy double bedroom and an en-suite shower room with shower enclosure, wash hand basin, toilet and heated towel rail. All towels and linen are provided.
All heating is electric and included within the tariff. Our Scandinavian windows and doors contribute to this modern and well insulated apartment. Guests are welcome to use the garden where there is also seating and barbecue facilities.
The island's shop is a short stroll away in the village of Balvicar.
Waiting to be discovered the Isle of Seil has great walking, fresh air and stunning sea views. You can also enjoy bird watching, sea-kayaking, sailing, boat trips, fishing, cycling, golf, diving and photography.
Whether it’s a peaceful stroll along the shore or enjoying the views at Pulladobhrain anchorage, the Atlantic Bridge or around the whole of Easdale Island, you’ll be inspired by what you see. For wildlife enthusiasts there are seals, otters, porpoises, deer, sea eagles and much, much more. For the energetic, enjoy high point views from the trig point on the ridge, or the almost aerial views from the impressive slate cliffs across Ellenabeich, Easdale Island, Luing and on to the Garvellachs, even Jura, Colonsay and Islay on a good day.
If you do want to eat out and enjoy local seafood and game, there is the characterful Tigh an Truish Inn by the Atlantic Bridge, the Oyster Bar at Ellenabeich where you can watch the sun set, or if you fancy a short trip across the water (4minutes) to Easdale, the charming Puffer Bar. Just a little further away is the new award winning Atlantic Islands Centre on Luing which also offers good food, and sea views alongside interesting local history.
The main town of Oban, seafood capital of Scotland, is 30 minutes away by car or the local bus service. The home of a cult whisky and the impressive McCaig's Tower, it gives excellent access to other Hebridean islands. There’s a good beach at Ganavan Sands, a pleasant 2 mile coastal stroll from the centre of the town. Entertainment comes in the form of the Phoenix 2 screen cinema, the Corran Halls Theatre, evenings at the local pubs, celtic sounds and seasonal ceilidhs.
Other places to visit include the magnificent Glencoe and Ben Nevis, Inveraray Castle, Ben Cruachan, Crinan Canal, Arduaine Gardens, Kilmartin Glen, Ardfern, Kilmelford and the home of the very first Scots, Dunadd.
