What is a typical expat home or apartment like in Oban?

"A typical expat home or apartment in Oban, is likely to be a traditional Scottish dwelling, often made of stone with a slate roof. These homes are usually well-insulated to protect against the cold Scottish winters. The interior of the homes often feature a blend of modern and traditional Scottish design, with wooden floors, fireplaces, and large windows to let in natural light. The living room is usually spacious, with comfortable furniture and a television. The kitchen is typically equipped with modern appliances, including a stove, refrigerator, and dishwasher. Bedrooms are cozy, often carpeted, and come with built-in wardrobes. Bathrooms are usually modern and well-maintained. Many homes also have a small garden or yard, and some may even offer stunning views of the surrounding Scottish Highlands or the nearby sea. The location of these homes can vary, with some located in the heart of Oban, close to shops and restaurants, while others are situated in quieter, more residential areas," explained one expat living in Oban, Scotland.
