We would like to clarify that the recent work done to the tidal sea channel between Luing and Torsa were carried out by Cadzow Bros of Luing and have NOTHING to do with ourselves or the owner of Torsa Island - 25 September 2021.
Enjoy a holiday on your own private Scottish island
Situated on the West Coast of Scotland, not too far from Oban, Argyll, Torsa Farmhouse is the only house on the island so you get the whole place to yourself, except for a few sheep and Luing cattle. The house is spacious and well equipped, access is via a small motorboat and the views of sea and islands are unbeatable. The walled garden is good for dogs and as the house sleeps six, the whole family can enjoy the peace and quiet of a holiday on Torsa. There are many attractions in the area, or you can just relax and do nothing. Wildlife abounds, the days are quiet and the nights are peaceful and dark. Torsa is a remote holiday location suitable for those with a sense of adventure.
Bring your own boat for even more adventures
With its own mooring and the sheltered anchorage available within Ardnamir Bay on the Isle of Luing, Torsa is the perfect base for a sailing or power boat holiday using your own boat. Launching facilities are available at the ferry slipway on Luing or from the beach at Ardnamir, and with well established marinas and chandlers in the area you are well provided for in every way. There are plenty of opportunities for exploring the area with Loch Melfort, the islands of the Firth of Lorn, Shuna Island, Jura and the Corryvreckan whirlpool waiting to be discovered.
Transport to Torsa is via a rigid tubed dinghy called Cutty which is kept on a running mooring and ingress/egress is by stepping over the side of her (approx. 1m height) onto the stone beach.
Please bear this in mind if you have leg or hip concerns.
There is no jetty, pontoon, pier, dock etc, which is why we recommend wellies!
