Crest Of A Wave
Click to book Crest Of A Wave now: from £1177.06 per night Whether it's a party or just a big get-together, this huge estate sits grandly overlooking Oban Bay, with enough fun to keep everyone entertained. The striking views over the islands backdrop activities here; from the movie room, by the roaring fireplace, or in one of the huge double bedrooms. Even the games room looks out over the ocean - though with ping pong and pool tables, you should be keeping your eye on the ball. Interiors are wonderfully grand and fit for an occasion; we love making a statement by sweeping down the winding white staircase or rustling up a feast in the huge kitchen. For quieter moments, the patio and outdoor sofa is perfect for soaking up the fresh air - and as the sun sets, move quickly to nab your space in the hot tub.

A cosy two-bedroom cottage, this home has beautiful views of the lake, and you're even provided with a telescope to get a better view of the wildlife (and maybe another famous inhabitant). You'll feel at home as soon as you arrive – the interiors have been designed by Scottish furnishings maker ANTA, and classic tartan prints adorn the homeware and bedding. Spend your mornings in the garden listening to the birdsong before heading out to explore your surroundings. There are plenty of Highland hikes in the area, and if you're wanting to get a closer look at the lake, try a cruise – there's a jetty just a short walk away from this home. On colder days, curl up on the leather sofa in the living room in front of the fire, or settle back in an armchair with a book. You'll find everything you need in the kitchen to cook a warming meal, including an oven and grill, dining by the window with a view of the lake. When the sun sets, this home becomes the perfect place for a spot of stargazing. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms

Designed by a prominent 19th-century Scottish architect, this place retains its original charm. We were stunned by the ornate plasterwork, massive fireplaces and antique furnishings. Wake up to a view of the shimmering waters of Loch Long and The River Clyde. Peek through the telescope in the lounge and see if you can spot the isle of Arran in the distance. Every care has been taken to make the place as kid-friendly as possible – from ensuring the sockets and fireplaces are covered to providing high-chairs and cribs. Your little ones will also find plenty of books, toys and a games console. You can sip a cuppa undistrubed, while the kids play make-believe in the grand rooms and sprawling garden. If you can tear yourself away, miles of stunning natural trails await you in nearby Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park.
