Shuna is ideally situated in a small development of similar properties located in the thriving and picturesque village of Port Appin. It enjoys a degree of privacy and seclusion, but with the benefit of village life offering the usual amenities and friendly community. Port Appin is one of the most sought after coastal locations within Argyll. The village overlooks the Lynn of Lorn and Loch Linnhe, and offers uninterrupted views towards the Island of Lismore with the mountains of Kingairloch and Morvern forming a stunning backdrop to this rural location.
Port Appin has a range of local amenities, including a doctor’s surgery, shop and post office and a well respected primary school serving the local area in Appin, with secondary education being undertaken in Oban, for which a daily bus service operates. The internationally famous Airds Hotel and Pier House Hotel are situated within walking distance of the house. The village hall and churches in Port Appin and Appin provide the focus for numerous local activities.
As the name suggests, Port Appin focuses very much on the water and summer moorings may be available within Port Appin which would enable full enjoyment to be obtained from exploring the many islands and beaches within the Lynn of Lorn. The nearby small Marina at Lettershuna has a pontoon and a courtesy boat tender service, whilst a new facility at nearby Barcaldine offers excellent indoor boat storage.
The famous Castle Stalker is a prominent local landmark and can be visited on selected dates during the summer.
The hills and glens surrounding the area have many way-marked walks, as well as the National Nature Reserve at Glasdrum and mountain climbing and skiing are available within the nearby National Scenic Area of Glencoe. Glencoe itself is in the heart of Lochaber which is now known as “The Outdoor Capital of the UK” due to the easy access to all types of outdoor activities; recent additions have included a world-renowned mountain biking track and one of the finest indoor climbing centres in the UK, as well as a cycling track which is nearing completion.
The nearby centres of Oban and Fort William provide a wide range of services including shops, offices, banks and hospitals, as well as being the local centres of employment. Oban, which is attractively laid out around Oban Bay, serves as the main embarkation point for the Caledonian MacBrayne ferry services serving the Inner Hebrides and some of the Outer Hebridean islands. Oban offers good travel links by rail, air and road to the rest of the UK.
