Local information

  • The Tower House is located in an area of dramatic natural scenic beauty at Loch Melfort, about 0.9 miles south of the village of Kilmelford on Scotland's west coast. The house sits in a commanding hillside position on the south bank of the loch and from its vantage point boasts stunning views out over Loch Melfort and the surrounding mountains and glens.
  • Kilmelford has a local post office, shop and provisions store which caters for everyday requirements. The district is well served by a fine range of local country pubs, restaurants and hotels, all of which usually sell local seafood and seasonal produce. Kilmelford Haven Marina is only 2.4 miles from The Tower House.
  • Arduaine Garden, 3 miles to the south of The Tower House, is famous in the district, originally conceived by J. Arthur Campbell who also built the awardwinning Loch Melfort Hotel. The gardens are extensive but retain the intimacy of a private garden.
  • The main west coast town of Oban is about 15 miles to the north and Lochgilphead is about 22 miles to the south; both offer a much wider range of shopping, professional and leisure services. A local bus service runs between Oban and Lochgilphead and Oban has a mainline railway station with a service connecting to Glasgow.
  • The waters off the west coast of Scotland are famed for challenging sailing and stunning scenery. The sheltered sea loch of Loch Melfort is well known among the sailing community and has always drawn yachts and boating craft to its pretty and safe anchorage.
  • The surrounding countryside provides an abundance of outdoor and sporting activities including hill walking and mountain biking. Oban, Lochgilphead and Ardfern provide sea fishing, wildlife boat trips plus sailing access to the west coast.
