CRAOBH HAVEN - SOPHISTICATED TINY VILLAGE AND MARINA
Craobh Haven is a tiny village with a 300 berth marina on sea Loch Shuna, a mile off the main A816 midway between Oban and Lochgilphead. The village and marina were purpose built some 25 years ago, created by ingeniously joining together a few small islands with a causeway, creating a stunning walk with frequent sightings of seals, sea brids, otters and eagles. There are wonderful views to the many inner Hebridean islands and the infamous Corrie Vreckan whirlpool.
The Lords of the Isles pub has been newly taken over and refurbished and serves excellent food. Its windows and terrace offer spectacular views across the marinas many boatds, out to the sea and islands beyond. The village shop is well stocked and the wonderful gift shop/art gallery, The Giving Tree, has just had a successful exhibition of professional local work.
The local Lunga Estate riding stable offer natural horsemanship from beautiful spotted Appaloosa horses and they are open year round for lessons and trecks.
Craobh Haven is a perfect spot to enjoy Argyll’s spectacular west coast scenery, it is bursting with wonderful views, sunsets, scenery, boats trips, fishing, wildlife, walking and even just relaxing and enjoying the peace and tranquillity.
