    The house en the surroundings are perfect. We stayed 1 week (family of 5, incl. teenagers). It should have lasted longer. Everyone enjoyed their stay very much.

The property

Kilchoan 5 miles.

This impressive and welcoming detached farmhouse is located at the far western end of the stunning Ardnamurchan Peninsula, the most westerly point of the British mainland, and makes a truly perfect holiday home for families and friends.

The house itself is in a wonderfully scenic location with views of Loch Grigadale and the surrounding hills and a small distant view of the sea and the northern tip of Coll where the lighthouse can be seen flashing at night.

This is the only light to be seen, apart from the stars.

A driveway from the single track road to the lighthouse leads up to the house where the bright and comfortable accommodation is set over two floors.

The fitted kitchen is extremely well-equipped and leads through to a magnificent wood floored dining room where meals can be enjoyed together around the table.

The sitting room has a welcoming open fire and a door that gives access to the garden.

There are three bright and sunny bedrooms on the upper floor complemented by two bathrooms and the views from all windows are simply delightful!

It will be difficult to leave this wonderful house with its generous supply of reading materials and high level of comfort.

Outside there is a family-friendly garden and picnic area.

Here you can sit and relax whilst soaking up the beauty and tranquillity of the area and perhaps even enjoy some alfresco dining on a pleasant evening.

Situated in 1800-acres of its own land which stretches from the ridge of hills behind it to the coast a mile to the west there is plenty to explore on your doorstep.

The land incorporates about two miles of coastline featuring two small sandy beaches (only one suitable for swimming), two rocky bays, low-lying rocky shores and cliffs ranging from 250 to over 400 feet with magnificent views to the islands of Muck, Eigg, Rum, Canna and Skye to the north, to the west Coll and even the Outer Hebrides on a clear day, and to the south the Treshnish Isles and Mull.

The land also includes the most westerly point on the mainland, Corrachadh Mor, slightly to the west of Ardnamurchan Point and three lochs.

Why not visit the famous Ardnamurchan Lighthouse, just a mile away, and treat yourself to a snack in the friendly tearoom?

The lovely sandy beaches of Bay MacNeil, Portuairk and Sanna are very close by too, and you may have them all to yourself!

Wildlife lovers and walkers will see deer, pine martins, otters and eagles so always have your camera at the ready.

What a fabulous holiday home and what a truly magical place!

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?
