    “This cottage was perfect, and had all amenities and even logs and coal were provided.”

    The owners live next door, but were never in our faces, they welcomed us, and gave us some info on the area. They said we could knock any time if we needed any help, which we did the very next morning, as my boyfriend woke up with a bad neck, and we had no pain killers, and local shop didn't open until 11am, and nearest town is 40 miles away. They kindly gave us some painkillers and deep heat. We were so grateful. The cottage really is quite remote, so when you first arrive bring the basics of ...

    The owners live next door, but were never in our faces, they welcomed us, and gave us some info on the area. They said we could knock any time if we needed any help, which we did the very next morning, as my boyfriend woke up with a bad neck, and we had no pain killers, and local shop didn't open until 11am, and nearest town is 40 miles away. They kindly gave us some painkillers and deep heat. We were so grateful. The cottage really is quite remote, so when you first arrive bring the basics of your shopping with you. There is a small shop a couple of miles away by Lochaline Ferry port, but they stock limited goods, and they open from 9 till 6 during the week, and I believe 11 till 2pm on Sunday. There is also a small post office in the shop, there is a hotel up the road, doctors surgery, and a restaurant, but it wasn't opened when we were here, it opens from Easter. To get to Lochaline, the last 18 miles are single track road, but there are plenty of passing places. There are also little roads leading off the main track, and we decided to drive down some of them, and they all seem to lead somewhere hidden, Lochs, beautiful views, wildlife, ans one coastal treck brought us out to a bistro, in a tiny village. We enjoyed every minute of the holiday, and was sad to be going home.

The property

Nestled in a remote location on the Morvern Peninsula, with beautiful countryside views and access to the Isle of Mull on the car-ferry, is number 5 Larachbeg.

This semi-detached, 100-year-old workers cottage, set within a row of four, offers a traditional, homely interior, ideal for families and friends.

The lounge is warmed by a woodburning stove, set against a stone surround, and there is cosy seating uplifted by the natural light streaming in through the window.

There is a dining area in the kitchen, ready for you to enjoy some home cooked meals, and though it is simple in design, it is well-equipped with integrated fixtures.

The ground floor is complete with a bathroom in an all-white finish, occupying a bath and an electric shower.

Upstairs are the three bedrooms; two doubles, followed by a twin, which share a shower room.

The large walk-in shower cubicle wakes you up each morning before you step out to explore the wider region of the Highlands.

To the outside, you have use of a patio with garden furniture and a shed for storage.

Just a couple of miles along the River Aline will bring you to the village of Lochaline, which overlooks the spectacular Sound of Mull.

There is a shop, snack bar, seafood restaurant and for those feeling energetic, a thriving dive centre.

Take the ferry over to the Isle of Mull and explore a wealth of flora and fauna, sandy beaches, walking, cycling and fishing.

You may be lucky enough to catch glimpses of whales and dolphins, or even the elusive Eurasian Otter, as well as abundant seabirds that nest along the seaweed covered shorelines.

Fort William is further afield with the Nevis Range and many outdoor activities to enjoy.

A lovely cottage to choose for your next adventure to the Scottish Highlands.
