The Summerhouse has very unusual and attractive architectural features.
The structure is thought to have been salvaged from a hydropathic facility that began construction in the late 19th Century but was never completed.
The extensive windows overlook a large peaceful, green garden to one side, which is often visited by many birds, deer and other wildlife. Oban Bay and Dunollie Castle (seat of clan McDougall) can be seen, and also the islands of Kerrera, Lismore and the Morvern hills.
