A scenic, tranquil village located 15 miles north of Oban on Scotland's rugged west coast, Appin is the ideal escape for those who crave a bit of peace and anonymity. Set against a dramatic backdrop of islands and mountains, Castle Stalker sits on its own island overlooking the community which has resided here for centuries. Appin has a deep-rooted and bloody history, and it is said the identity of the murderer of the Red Fox (the famous "Appin Murder" famously re-told in Robert Louis Stevenson's Kidnapped) will forever be kept secret by one of the local families.
Nowadays Appin is a peaceful and beautiful corner of Scotland, a haven for walkers, photographers and wildlife enthusiasts. Each season offers something completely different, from the fiery red West coast sunsets in Summer to the stunning golden spectrum of colour on the hills in Autumn.
