2023 post covid, new legislation et all.

Covid and restrictions seems ages away. We have left the isolation and distancing with others behind us, and some things like extra careful hygiene became a good routine we have continued with. We are very fortunate to be able to offer you a safe and beautiful holiday away from home. 

We are in the process of getting registered under the new Scottish law for self catering holiday accommodation.  This law was mainly put in motion to ensure that all rentals are safe and comply (what we already do) with health and safety measurements. 



Oban Seil Farm commitment to the environment

We work on minimising waste and energy and reduce the harmless effects that we have on the environment we live in. Over the years we have carried out many improvements and we continue to do so. We have got triple glaze windows to minimise heat loss. we encourage our guests to use the compost bin and we empty that for you on a regular basis when you are here. the compost is fed to the hens and sometimes to the sheep when appropriate. Our bins are for general waste and recycling waste according to Council policies. Our cleaning products are all environmentally friendly and we refill containers as much as possible and we use natural products locally produced as much as possible.

We encourage you to shop in our local shop and we have a contact to the local fisherman who often sell fish on the day of catch. We have a local baker who will deliver your pizza, and a fisherman who makes the most fantastic plattters to order and delivers them to your door.  The island have a variety of local craftsmen who you can visit and perhaps buy their craft and pr

We use low energy lightbulbs and we ask you to be mindful of using the heating, and especially the showers in a sensible way.


To make the farm as friendly to wildlife as possible we try to offer a variety of homes. Shelter, a place to eat, a place to hide, a place to drink fresh water and a place to swim. The sky is the limit and we are so lucky to have the most amazing wildlife on the farm. Sea otters, seals, crabs and wild oysters can be found and seen on the shore. We have bats near the barn that you can see flying around at dusk. You will see golden eagles, sea eagles, buzzards, herons and ospreys above us and so many small birds and insects are always buzzing around us. We have bird feeders and wild flowers and plenty of spaces to hide and live.

Oban Seil Farm complies to all relevant legislation and regulations that relate to Health and Safety and the environment. We are open to suggestions and advice, even if we cant do what you suggest right now and we are constantly changing to get better at what we are doing.

last but not least, Please use the right bins for the right waste. Our bins are not emptied if the wrong stuff is in the wrong bin.

All the best and warmest wishes.

Nick and Bette Hunter
