This majestic ground-floor apartment is set beside the spectacular Sound of Kerrera, just 1.5 miles southwest of Oban. This magnificent home exemplifies Scotland's natural beauty and romance. With its high ceiling, ornate cornicing, and burnished oak floor, the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner radiates baronial majesty. The view from the outside is similarly stunning. Open the French doors to the private terraced garden and down the steps to the community garden, which is protected by a castellated sea wall. It's truly breathtaking, and it's a great way to take in Scotland's natural beauty.
