Sealasdair is located in an area of dramatic natural scenic beauty at Loch Feochan, and from its south facing vantage point there are wonderful views out over the sheltered anchorage and marina of Loch Feochan.

The house is situated in a wonderful coastal spot known as Lerags Glen which is well known for its natural scenic beauty and yet is only about 6 miles to the south of the main west coast market town of Oban.

As mentioned Oban is about 6 miles to the north and offers a near complete range of shopping, professional, cultural and leisure services.

Oban has a number of primary schools, a well-respected secondary school as well as a medical centre, hospital and churches of various denominations.

A local bus service runs between Oban & Lochgilphead and Oban has a mainline railway station with a service connecting to Glasgow. The Caledonian MacBrayne ferries depart from Oban to many island destinations.

The west of Scotland is famed for its scenic sailing, associated chandlery and marina services. The sheltered sea loch of Loch Feochan is well known among the sailing community and has always drawn yachts and boating craft to its pretty and safe anchorage.

Further to the south is Craobh Haven marina, where a larger, safe water marina was formed by the building of causeways and a large breakwater between a small group of tidal saltwater islands. The marina has been developed from a near perfect natural harbour, with berths for up to 250 craft of all sizes to a maximum length of 33 meters. Craobh marina offers access to a fabulous selection of west coast sea lochs and islands with lots of sheltered anchorages to explore and has a harbourmaster, marina office and chandlers. There are also many opportunities for seal and whale-watching, bird watching and diving opportunities in the surrounding waters.

The local inland countryside provides an abundance of outdoor and sporting activities including hill walking and mountain biking, and there are many small, well-stocked hill lochs for trout fishing plus some spate streams for salmon and sea-trout. Oban and surrounding sheltered sea lochs provide excellent and abundant sea-fishing plus sailing access to the west coast, inner and outer Hebrides all of which is widely recognised by yachtsmen and women the world over as some of the most scenic and testing sailing available.

For field sportsmen and women there are shooting and stalking opportunities by prior arrangement on some of the local estates in the district.
