West Ferlochan is a well appointed 4 star cottage in Benderloch. Our cottage, near Oban, is in a tranquil location close to Loch Creran. It is situated by the A828 Oban/Fort William road and therefore provides excellent access to the best of the West Highlands and a whole range of recreational facilities.  Just a 20 minute drive to Oban - " the Gateway to the Isles" or a 50 minute drive to Fort William - described as "the outdoor capital of the UK".

The cottage is situated on our 220 acre grass and woodland farm. It is the home to our Highland Cattle, namely Sguir Mor Fold and our Galloway cattle namely, Ashfield Pedigree Galloways.  Willie MacLean, our Farm Manager, will be pleased to show you both the farm and the cattle upon request.

Farm Gallery

  • “This is one of the best accommodations we've ever been to. The house is located on a farm, you can see all the animals, you can walk around and explore the beautiful surroundings like the mountain stream up the hill and the beautiful Scottish cows. It's perfect for trips to Glencoe, Glenfinnan, Oban, famous Eilan Donnan Castle, Fort William, Fort Augustus (Loch Ness) and even Isle of Skye if you leave early. The house is very nice, very clean and there's everything you need in the kitchen and bathrooms. Highly recommended, you won't be disappointed. We'll be back one day.” 2024
  • “We enjoyed the beautiful cottage - a fabulous place to celebrate a milestone birthday party! The cows are gorgeous!" 2023
  • “The home is very clean and well furnished. We enjoyed the physical structure, but also the ideal location that is close to Oban and other areas that allowed us to relax most of the time. The farm setting was peaceful and refreshing from city life. The hosts were were very friendly and welcoming. I would enjoy staying at this property again in the future." 2024
  • "From the moment we arrived we knew we had made a good choice. It was really clean, cosy, spacious. Amanda had thought of absolutely everything. We loved the situation, so very near to the loch, and very peaceful, only the cows calling when the farmer arrived to feed them. Very Highly recommended. Hope to return one day." 2024
  • "Thank you so much for having us! We had an amazing stay and felt very much at home in this lovely cottage of yours.” 2023
  • "This cottage is in a quiet peaceful location that is close enough to Oban to be convenient, but far enough to be away from the hustle of the town center. Communication with Amanda was easy, and she even contacted us after checkin, to be sure everything was ok. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a place to stay near Oban." 2024
  • "Thank you for a really lovely week - the place is incredibly clean and comfortable. Got to see lots of the area, had a fabulous time and fantastic weather!" 2023
  • "Perfect in all ways & the location can not be beat. The home was amazing as was the farm. Everything you need for a comfortable stay. From a fully stocked kitchen to luxury items. The house was clean and very comfortable. It was awesome to meet Willie, Brad, the Highlanders & Galloways. The baby highlanders were a bonus. We loved the tour of the farm Willie took us on. Also the walk up to the top of the Hill was great with awesome 360 views. Amanda is a most welcome hostess. She is quick to respond and very helpful. We loved this farmhouse so much we will be coming back. Thank you Amanda, Willlie, Brad & the Coos." 2024
