A warm welcome awaits you here at Shenavallie Farm Bed and Breakfast. Elaine looks forward to having you stay in our purpose built home designed with our guests in mind. We are on a working farm,the farm itself and orginal farmhouse are just a mile from the B&B where we breed Highland cattle, beef cattle and North Country Cheviot ewes.
Guests are free to have a walk down by the shore where the Highland Cattle roam freely and explore the areas around the farm,but it can be wet so walking boots or wellies are recommended.
We could go into greater detail for there is so much to tell you about the beauty and history of this part of Scotland’s famous West Coast. Why not come and see for yourself – we will be delighted to be your hosts.
Peaceful location for exploring Oban area
Lying on the outskirts of the village of Benderloch, our B&B is only a twenty minute drive from Oban and all the facilities there. Oban is known as the ‘seafood capital of Scotland‘ and rightly so with a selection of excellent restaurants serving locally caught shellfish and seafood. Oban is also well connected to the outlying islands and from here you can explore the islands of Mull, Iona, Staffa, Lismore, Kerrera and more.
Based at Shenavallie there are many beautiful and interesting places to visit. The Sea Life Centre,only five miles away, provides a close-up view of local fish and other sea creatures and has proved to be a great place for children (some small species can be touched!) .
Further on, heading northwards past Castle Stalker is Appin, site of the infamous Appin murder which featured in Robert Louis Stevensons’s book “Kidnapped”,continue North yet, only about 30 mins. drive is the Pass of Glencoe, scene of the infamous massacre of 1692. There is an Information Centre here where the story of the Massacre is portrayed, but it also tells of the wildlife that abounds in the glen and surrounding mountains. It is difficult to stand here and not feel in awe of the majestic scenery.
An hour’s drive will take you to Glen Nevis and if you are fit for it, a climb up Ben Nevis – Britain’s highest mountain. An easier mountain climb is at Aonach Mhor but you may find the Gondola a bit easier. Aonach Mhor is one of Scotland’s finest ski areas and the Gondola station by the car park means that you don’t have to be very fit to enjoy the magnificent views whilst having a refreshment or meal in the bar and restaurant at the upper gondola station. Further north, but a longer drive is Loch Ness where you may encounter the legendary monster but are more likely to have the pleasure of the spectacular scenery.
Also within easy reach are Fort William,Mallaig Glencoe and Inveraray. The surrounding area offers a wide range of activities from gentle strolls along the loch sides to such sports as kayaking, mountain biking, orienteering and gliding at our local airport. With breathtaking scenery and varied wildlife just waiting to be spotted this really is perfect for nature lovers. If you have a particular interest, then let us know and we will endeavour to find out more for you.
