Why Mandy Ross chose Oban

Teach Aisling is situated on the shores of Loch Creran enjoying stunning panoramic views of the water and the hills. As life long visitors to the West Coast we fell in love with the site and built Teach Aisling as a family holiday home.

This house is Awesome and the owners are a pleasure to deal wilh

  • 5 of 5

An amazing get away from it all holiday, but so much more to do if you want to. I personally spent all the time at the house, as i found it hard to tear myself away from the stunning ever-changing view. The house is equipped with everything you could possibly think of, and some. I highly recommend this property to anyone who is looking for that something different in a holiday, close enough to all the amenities you could wish for, yet so quiet that the silence is scary. Mandy made us most welcome when we arrived a tad early, and it was no problem at all. All going well, we hope to return next year as believe me there is nowhere anywhere quite like Teach Aisling. Thank you, George, Linda and family

The house was lovely and clean when we arrived. The views over the Loch were amazing and as the weather was fabulous it was a joy to just sit in the sun and watch the wildlife.

The house is very well equipped and had everything that we needed, comfortable bedrooms and plenty of showers.

There is plenty to do in the area so we will be back!

"A real dilemma"

  • 5 of 5

Teach Aisling is a true gem of a holiday home, so it is 'A real dilemma when describing how much we are enjoying our time here! If we tell to many people how fantastic and special the home is, they will want to book it and it will become to busy.... On the other hand who wouldn't say what a thoroughly relaxing time we have had, can't wait till the next time. On the fist day we watched two young seals swimming past, then just as the tide was almost out we looked on in awe as an otter fished for its lunch, that really was special, for many a once in a lifetime experience seeing an otter in the wild.

We will not be able to help ourselves from telling our friends what a special place 'Teach Aisling is and are already planning our return.

It is difficult to put into words the feeling of total relaxation and restful tranquility that you experience when you enter this lovingly cared for home, on this beautiful shore line.

You sense isolation, but you are only a few minutes from the main road.

You can see the ferries go past, but you can barely hear them as pass on the far side of the loch

If you are into wildlife, then it's here. If your joy is in walking, its here, if you want to do nothing - then there is not a better place to that.

Can't wait to return.
