From Arduaine pier to sheep-dotted Shuna is 20 minutes… and you almost have the island to yourself! Bliss for wildlife lovers, kids and dogs

Peace, beauty, seclusion… no roads, no cars, a turbine, solar panels – welcome to the island of Shuna. With your own boat you can stock up in Oban and visit nearby Craobh Haven (eat at the pub or take a cruise to Correvreckan Whirlpool, one of many local wonders). The island's cottages are owned and maintained by enthusiastic, charismatic Eddie: South End House, with spell-binding views south to Jura; Boat House, high on stilts, with a boat shed below to the jetty; and Garden House, bow-windowed, white and pretty, 200m up the track. Spot otters, seals, eagles, deer, picnic on unspoilt beaches, chop logs, catch fish... Then it's back home to books, games and pure spring water. Backing onto dense woodland, Garden House is well-proportioned inside, with bedrooms up and down and a homely feel. Spacious, light-filled Boat House, newly encased in wood and cosily furnished in Scandi style, comes with a kitchen that's a pleasure to work in and a wood-burner that belts out the heat. Pleasures here are simple but rich, and walkers, dogs and kids will adore it.

Kathryn James:

  • Guardian writer Dixe Wills declared "Shuna: the overlooked jewel off the west of Scotland" in his recent article featuring our special place to stay. Read the article on our website, listed above.
  • Shuna lies in the heart of the biggest archipelago in the British Isles. Dozens of islands offer countless coves to explore and stunning views to enjoy. Colours change with the sea's mood in what is a paradise for boatmen, fishermen and artists alike.
  • Between these islands lie some of the world's most stunning tidal races. The Gulf of Corryvreckan between Jura and Scarba, the world's third largest whirlpool, is the most famous, but the pass of the Gray Dog, just to the north, can be even more dramatic!
  • The islands, including Shuna, are home to European Otter and Red Deer, Roe Deer and Fallow Deer. Atlantic Grey Seals, Minke Whale, Bottlenose Dolphin, and Harbour Porpoise are regular marine visitors. Golden and White-tailed Sea Eagles scour land and sea.
  • Visit the bustling local town of Oban. Try the delicously fresh seafood or tour the whisky distillery. Take the kids or yourselves to the Scottish Sea Life Sanctuary on nearby Loch Creran. Try some fly fishing on Loch Awe side. Argyll has so much to offer!
