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.

Fasnacloich House is furnished to a high standard providing comfortable accommodation ideal for a family holiday. Terraced lawns surround the house leading to the Fasnacloich Loch. In front of the house is a boathouse and stone jetty.

Azaleas, rhododendrons and daffodils are a riot of colour in the spring, and banks of mature trees including oak, beech, eucalyptus and cedar create shelter. The local village of Port Appin has a convenient shop, a hotel, seafood restaurant and pub.

Fishing and red/roe stalking may be available on request. Local activities include sailing and water-skiing. Nearby Glencoe offers winter skiing and the surrounding mountains have excellent hill walking and mountaineering.

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.

Fasnacloich is one of our first houses to install an Electric Vehicle Charging Point!

We say...

In a quiet but accessible glen close to the sea, made famous by Robert Louis Stevenson in his book Kidnapped, lies Fasnacloich House. With wooded hills behind and views over its own loch to the mountain ridge beyond this delightful house enjoys all the benefits of remoteness and solitude expected of a highland property.

You say...

The house is enchanting and we didn’t want to leave, me least of all. The house is situated in the most stunning setting, it’s extremely comfortable, it’s a genuine home from home and we thoroughly unwound and had the loveliest time together. It’s a place you could stay happily without venturing out, it’s that lovely!

We had a fabulous week at Fasnacloich, the house was lovely, one of the nicest we have stayed in, and all our party enjoyed their week. Irene the housekeeper was a great help, it was so nice to return each day to a tidy house! We would definitely consider staying again, and if not there we will use George Goldsmith for future Summer breaks....we have already recommended you to many of our friends.

We had a lovely time at Fasnacloich - not only was it a wonderful house and surrounds but we had great weather too. Sorry to have to leave... Hope to hear from you soon. Kind regards Caroline

Thankyou, Fasnacloich was fabulous. The house, situation and the people made our holiday memorable. Would love to return. One day if the house is available. Thanks Jenny.

Mrs Jennifer Barr, Gers, France


We had an excellent time at Fasnacloich, it is a beautiful and very comfortable home and we were very well looked after by the housekeeper Mrs Livingstone. All our guests were entranced by the setting, with very peaceful and everchanging views of the Loch and hills. The chef, Jeremy, was tremendous, very good food produced quickly and nothing too much trouble. I therefore had a very relaxing time! We do not know our plans for next year, but if we were to go back to Scotland would contact you. Many Thanks. Lady Chadwyck-Healey

Just returned after a great few days at Fasnacloich drenched in sunshine. You can't beat the West Coast with weather like that. House was fabulous, great setting, grounds and decor/facilities made for a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. Chirstine was superb - great wholesome food. She was great with the kids too. Thanks again for organising at short notice. My American contingent said it just blew them away. Kind regards. Peter.
