As the winter wind begins to sing through the yew trees at Home Farm, we light the fires and fold in for the season...
Set in its own little forest near Oban bay, there is something perfectly tranquil about Home Farm – a softness and privacy, a sense of being folded into trees. Part 1600’s, part Arts and Crafts, this is the oldest building in the glen. Fully restored to accommodate ten guests, each room in the house has been individually composed - paintings and prints by local artists on the walls, a bespoke croft bed, open fires. Owls, deer and red-squirrel live in the large, secluded grounds beyond windows flooded with the silver and apricot light that characterises the west Highlands. Drive here, or take the famously vivid train route from Glasgow, past Loch Lomond and up to Oban. The town is just a country walk away, its famous bay dotted with seafood stalls and restaurants, and boats sailing to the rugged and rolling Isle of Mull, and the white-sanded Inner Hebrides beyond. Water and forest, Highland and garden, peace and bustle: Home Farm offers it all.
