    “Great cottage”
    Really enjoyed our stay. The cottage was well equipped and presented. There's ample parking outside. The caretakers for the cottage live next door and were very helpful. They even gave us their WiFi password, so we could access the internet. Highly recommended.

The property

Lochaline 3 miles.

A delightful stone-built mid-terrace cottage, in the south-west corner of the beautiful Morvern Peninsula, 3 miles from the small village of Lochaline, which overlooks the Sound of Mull.

Originally built over 100 years ago for workers on the nearby Ardtornish Estate, the cottage is well maintained and offers simple, comfortable accommodation with views of woodland and mountains, a cosy sitting room with woodburner, three bedrooms and a front and rear garden.

There are excellent walking, fishing, cycling and wildlife spotting opportunities on the doorstep, and a short car ferry ride will take you to the Isle of Mull, or you can take the old road along the north shore of the Sound of Mull to catch the foot ferry from Drimnin to Tobermory, which runs every Monday and Friday and returns after three hours.

A great cottage to escape to for some peace and quiet.
