  • “I really do not want to be negative but the cleanliness of this cottage was not good, the shower was all black round the lower tile grout,the water would not run away in the shower tray and we discovered the trap was clogged up with hair and soap scum, the work top in the kitchen was sticky,the microwave we had to clean ourselves.”

    When we booked there was a bath room and shower room but with the bathroom locked we were left with the shower room which is totally unsuitable, it is a good sized shower but the rest of the bathroom is 6ft by 4ft the first night I banged my head on the basin whilst drying after showering, the basin is so small my husband had a job to shave, washing your hands got you soaking wet,you had to reach over the toilet to open the door which only just skimmed past the toilet,the toilet seat slipped to ...

    When we booked there was a bath room and shower room but with the bathroom locked we were left with the shower room which is totally unsuitable, it is a good sized shower but the rest of the bathroom is 6ft by 4ft the first night I banged my head on the basin whilst drying after showering, the basin is so small my husband had a job to shave, washing your hands got you soaking wet,you had to reach over the toilet to open the door which only just skimmed past the toilet,the toilet seat slipped to one side presumably caused by having to twist right round to the window sill to reach toilet roll as there was no where to put a holder.The lights in the Kitchen were so dim it was almost impossible to see what you were doing, and because of Covid 19 we could not eat out like we usually do and had to cook. In general there was a lot off badly finished areas that made the cottage seem a bit run down. The pictures of the property need updating as there is a static caravan being placed right in front of the bedroom window, just a few yards away, complete with concrete mixer I would never have booked that cottage if I had known that a caravan was right in front like that.We love the area and will be back, we have booked with Sykes for many years and will continue to do so

The property

Tucked away down a single-track country road, resting just under a mile away from the quaint village of Kilchoan, is this traditional detached cottage boasting spectacular views out across the coastal waters to the Isle of Mull.

The walled garden welcomes you on approach down the path and to the front porch, where you will enter into a bright and airy hallway.

Just off from here is the double bedroom which is well-appointed with bedside cabinet and a wardrobe, with a scenery-filled window providing wonderful sea views to wake up to in the morning.

This ground floor level offers a shower room at the rear of the property, so you can choose where you wish to get ready for the day ahead.

Step into the cosy sitting room and relish the warmth from the multi-fuel stove, the seating is pleasantly arranged for you to enjoy its radiant glow from different angles.

At the rear of this Kilchoan cottage you will find he kitchen complete with classic wooden units and a dining area to enjoy your meals at throughout your stay.

The first floor sits under the eaves of the cottage with two single rooms resting peacefully either side of the landing.

The Velux windows flood the rooms with light during the day whilst the comfy beds allow you a good night's sleep.

This lovely surrounding area offers sandy beaches and an array of glorious wildlife to behold.

Why not take a trip over to Tobermory on the Isle of Mull, the ferry port is conveniently positioned at the end of the road which you can embark on foot or by car?

Nearby Ardnamurchan Point boasts its own lighthouse and visitor centre, and the Ardnamurchan Distillery is well worth a visit for those who like their whiskey.

With plenty to do in the local area and good access to the surrounding attractions, you won't want to miss an opportunity at this delightful Scottish Highlands cottage.

About the location

KILCHOAN

Tobermory 7 miles (via ferry).

The pretty village of Kilchoan is the most westerly village in mainland Britain, situated on the stunning Ardnamurchan Peninsula and surrounded by magnificent mountains and breathtaking coastal views. The area close to Kilchoan offers a choice of quiet sandy beaches and an abundance of wildlife with eagles regularly spotted overhead. Until 1900 the village was only accessible by sea, but now access is via a single track road that leads through some of the most beautiful scenery in Scotland. The village has good local services including a shop, pub, restaurant and community centre. From Mingary Pier there is a regular ferry service across the Sound of Mull to Tobermory which gives the opportunity to explore the islands of Mull and Iona. There are wildlife excursions on land and sea and the new Ardnamurchan Distillery and Natural History Centre are added attractions. A short drive away is Ardnamurchan Point complete with its own lighthouse and visitor centre which is well worth a visit, or perhaps you simply want to sit on the glorious Sanna Beach and enjoy the views across the clear blue sea to the islands of Muck, Eigg and Rum?
