We booked this last minute. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Nice wee hamper of good and some wine upon arrival. The bedroom was modern and stylish and very comfortable. Living room area equally so. Lovely big shower. Only down side was that we could only stay one night. A lovely view of Oban as the appartment is up on the hill. Only a short walk into town perfect location. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

“A wonderful little haven.”

A gorgeous, well equipped little apartment with beautiful views of Oban. Perfect for a break away for a couple.
A well equipped kitchen, perfect for self catering. A good selection of books, DVDs and board games to entertain on rainy days.
Rowan Tree apartment was within easy walking distance of Oban centre but far enough away to feel like a secluded haven to escape to. Very easy to catch the ferry to Mull and have an evening meal out in town without having to drive.
Within easy driving distance of Fort William, Glencoe, Loch Fyne and Loch Ness.
We had a lovely week away - thank you.

The apartment is beautiful, everything you would need is there including a lovely welcome basket. The apartment has stunning views. The owners are very nice & helpful.

Only a 10 minute walk from lovely Oban town.

100% Perfect.

“Fantastic modern and luxurious apartment. Ideal location and stunning views”

The flat is located within a 10 minute walk of Oban town centre. We took the ferry over to Mull, so we didn’t have to use the car at all. The flat itself is modern, very clean, finished to a very high standard with beautiful views over the hills and Oban bay.

When we arrived there was a hamper to welcome us which included eggs, fruit, rolls, oatcakes and a bottle of wine. This was much appreciated. The owners even dropped off some home baking for us - what more could you ask for?

We will defiantly return and would recommend this to anyone visiting Oban.
