Fasnacloich is situated in a quiet but accessible glen close to the sea, the scene of several dramatic events upon which Robert Louis Stevenson based his book 'Kidnapped'. It enjoys all the benefits of remoteness and solitude expected of a highland property while being within easy reach of the attractive town of Oban, which provides first class shopping facilities.
Links with the south by road are excellent. Glasgow and its international airport can be reached within two hours by car by way of Glencoe, Crianlarich and Loch Lomond. The local village of Port Appin has a convenient shop, a hotel and an excellent seafood restaurant and pub. The area provides a wealth of sporting facilities from hill walking and sailing to skiing at both Glencoe and Aonach Mhor.
Fasnacloich House occupies a quite lovely position in front of a wooded hillside overlooking its own loch with a mountain ridge beyond.
The house has been meticulously maintained with recent refurbishment of the kitchen and other areas. It provides extremely comfortable and easily managed accommodation. Fasnacloich is a really beautiful house of traditional character with some wonderful pine woodwork internally.
Gardens and Grounds
Meticulously maintained gardens and grounds surround the house, which is a particular feature of the property. To the south are terraced lawns leading down to the loch and a stone pier and boathouse. The whole area is interspersed with azaleas, rhododendrons and daffodils in the spring. To the west is a walled garden with lawns and a delightful herbaceous border.
Beyond this lies an enchanting water garden. On the east side of the house are further lawns, numerous small burns with mossy stone bridges and waterfalls and a sunken garden. Banks of mature trees including oaks, beeches, eucalyptus and cedars shelter and protect the house. Beyond the gardens are about 40 acres of woodland, grassland, paddocks, islands and rough ground.
Loch Bhaile Mhic Chailein (or Fasnacloich Loch) covers about 39 acres. There is a stone jetty and boathouse in front of the house.
