Self Catering Accommodation in Beautiful Surroundings


Sithean is a stunning new house on a working hill farm. Sithean, (pronounced shian), means 'fairy knoll' in Gaelic and is built in an elevated position overlooking Glen Lonan. The house commands spectacular views of Loch Etive and the 'Shepherds of Glencoe' to the North, Ben Cruachan to the East, and the sun sets over the distant hills of Morvern.


The house is beautifully designed and is full of surprises like the sauna which accesses into the birch woodlands. It sleeps eight and our goal has been to make it as family-friendly, comfortable and unique as possible.

We have attained four stars with VisitScotland's Quality Assurance scheme, and have achieved the Gold Award in the Green Tourism Business Scheme. Internal and external photographs of Sithean can be found here.

Sithean is secluded and peaceful, yet is only 2 miles away from Taynuilt, a lovely well-serviced village on the shores of Loch Etive. The West Coast town of Oban, known as 'the Gateway to the Isles', is 8 miles away; from there you can take a ferry to many of the inner and outer Hebridean islands.

The location is ideal for walking and cycling for the whole family, and there is an amazing range of wildlife; hen harriers breed in the rough grassland below the house, deer wander down off the heather hill and red squirrels breed in the surrounding oak and birch woodlands.

Within walking distance is Angus' Garden, one of the 'Glorious Gardens of Argyll & Bute', which is a beautiful 'wild' garden built around Loch Angus, and like the rest of this glen is a magical unspoilt place.
