  • "Mary’s House is the jewel in the crown, Very warm enough room for 4 the sofa ..."

    Mary’s House is the jewel in the crown, Very warm enough room for 4 the sofa bed is comfy I always bring a duvet to lie on anyway, Fantastic broadband now 30mbps, Pet safe garden, Stunning Views, Extremely Clean, Hot Shower, Tons of coal for multi fuel burner which is rare for this area, Owners lovely people who are nearby if any concerns, The winter months are very cheap and the electricity cost to the owners must be a lot as the cottage is extremely warm I have stayed at a lot at Ardnamurchan they are nothing like this, Don’t forget to visit Sanna and the lovely beaches at Portuairk

  • "The cottage was warm and comfortable with great views."

    The area is very remote and we found the 25 mile single track road difficult to negotiate. With the wide open spaces we thought it would be ideal to walk our Labrador, but no there are sheep surrounding the cottage and on the beaches so he could not exercise off lead, which was a problem. I would definitely recommend Mary’s cottage if you want seclusion with lovely views and walks without your big bounding dog.

  • "Lovely wee cottage, clean and very quiet."

    Situated uphill from the shore on a twisting single track road and down a rough track. Ideal if you wish a very relaxing holiday. Need to be fit for walking and cycling though as whole area hilly . Basic equipment in house but no ironing board or iron. Only a small frying pan and Small pots so difficult if you like larger portions’. Overall though an amazing Holiday with loads of cycling, walking and beautiful beaches ! Take your folding chairs to Sid outside if you don’t want to sit at picnic table in the evening. Dark sky country so plenty of stargazing ❤️

    Very peaceful with outstanding views and walks .Bring binoculars if you have any we saw a large pod of dolphins as we were at looking out to sea from the garden also my wife is a keen bird watcher and loved the variety and large numbers that visited the bird table. Bring some bird food or you can buy it from the Kilchoan Ferry Shop who also stock a good variety of food and other essentials.The Puffin Coffee shop and craft centre on the way to the road to the ferry itself is also worth a visit. A cottage to visit again and highly recommended.

    Comfortable seating and plenty space for a couple. The views are spectacular, an uninterrupted vista of Sanna Bay from the cottage. We saw otters playing on Portuairk beach - that was the highlight! Friendly and informative owner is nearby, local knowledge is fab. Amazing place, well worth the drive there.

    Mary’s House is very well equipped and extremely clean. We spent most of our time walking; Ardnamurchan Lighthouse, the stunning Sanna Bay and to the top of Ben Hiant. Our visit to Tobermory was very enjoyable and only takes about 35 minutes on the ferry. The weather was very kind to us with blue sky and sun every day. It was wonderful to be in such a beautiful part of Scotland after such a dismal locked down winter. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mary’s House.

    The best cottage we have stayed at by far. The view from the cottage is priceless.Its well away from the rat race 4 miles to the nearest shop, P O + groceries etc + fuel with allegedly the oldest working petrol pumps in Scotland. The rd for the last 25 miles is mostly single track with lots of blind summits, but well worth it at the end. We have two dogs and it was great for them. Log burner is superb with logs supplied for the weekend and free coal for your stay. Have a wonderful holiday.

    Many thanks to Donna for all of her hard work and commitment which still allows people to enjoy this beautiful peninsula from the comfort of this warm and cosy cottage. Plenty of fuel provided to enjoy the real fire which we especially loved. The cottage was very clean and we felt safe. It was easy to forget the troubles of the pandemic for a short blissful week. Thanks to Donna for making it possible. Regulars to the cottage will benefit from knowing, take your own fold up chairs, dvds (if you like that kind of thing!), books and board games as these are usually in the cottage but sadly they have had to be removed due to Covid rules.

  • "The cottage was absolutely lovely, the pictures on here do not do it justice, the decor is lovely and homely, facilities in the cottage are fantastic the kitchen especially has all the kinds of pots and pans you would need for an array of meals."

    The bedroom has extra blankets if needed and a hot water bottle under the sink which is a lovely touch. Bear in mind the heating is electric storage heaters so can be a little temperamental. Bear in mind that low cars might struggle going down to the cottage a bit. Sanna bay nearby is beautiful as is the bay that you can see from the windows, but be careful of quick sand! We also went over to Mull on one of the days which was absolutely beautiful, the ferry is around £29 return ticket and the first one leaves at 8am - there is a fab cafe right by the ferry terminal on Mull, fantastic fish chips and scallops - cash only though. You will need to get the Corran ferry if coming from the South, this will cut off around an hour of your journey so look into this before you leave out - this cost about £10. There was coal provided by the owners included in the rent which was fantastic as we really needed the fire on a cold and wintery January week. Make sure you bring some bird seed as the bird table gets very busy if you stock it up and there are some great binoculars on the windowsill! The local shop is fab and has plenty of different things you might need plus a fuel station. Mary's cottage was a real home from home <3

    It takes time and effort to get there, but the experience of the cottage and its surroundings make it every bit worthwhile. There are a range of beautiful walks from the door of the cottage, and the opportunity to return home to the cosy warmth of a woodburner, and views to die for. I will definitely return.

  • "Having stayed at Ardtoe for many years, we chose the peninsula as we love Sanna Bay so much and visiting for a day is never enough."

    From the excitement of driving down the track and pulling up outside the cottage, to driving away, my daughter and I couldn't believe our luck! What a gem of a place. We were blessed with a week of glorious weather and the scenery of turquoise waters and beautiful mountains every day, was stunning. The cottage is clean, cozy and beautifully equipped, with a comfortable bed, fantastic shower and the washing machine which was a boon. We stopped at Salen on the way for a light lunch, and then only came off the peninsula once to visit old favourites, Tioram Castle, Ardtoe Sands and then walked to the singing sands, all on the same day. We walked to Sanna and lazed on the beach, also Bay MacNeil which is equally stunning in a different way. Took a trip over to Tobermory, (catch the ferry from Kilchoan only 4 miles away) browsed the shops and ate ice-cream which was divine! We weren't lucky enough to see any marine life that day but the other wild life made up for it. Eagles, birds a plenty, pine martins, and deer. We did see seals in the bay on our first evening but the visiting yacht's in the bay may have put them off the rest of the week. If you like birds, be sure to take bird seed with you as there is a bird table in the garden. A visit to the lighthouse is well worth it and you will get a wonderful greeting from the lighthouse collie. Also the fish and chips were lovely at the Kilchoan hotel as was the warm welcome. The sunsets as ever, were stunning and its possible to see a lot of the Hebridean islands from your garden! I simply cannot wait to go back. Who needs to go abroad when we have all this here at home!

  • "We have been staying in Portuairk for 23 years and it was our first visit to this cottage, which was really lovely with superb and far reaching views."

    However, I did find it to be "a bit of a squeeze" for myself and my three 'children' (17, 18 & 23), despite the listing saying it "accommodates four".......fortunately, the weather was reasonably dry, so we weren't confined to the cottage and it wouldn't deter us from booking again, although not next year as it is obviously popular and already fully booked. The fenced off garden was very much appreciated by our dog and the picnic table enabled us to sit outside while enjoying the fair weather and great views. However, I do feel that, as the track to the cottage is now quite bad (it was a little better in 2013 when we stayed at Borve House), that potential guests should be made aware of this as it is not really very good for the average car to drive on! Also, the two tracks down from the cottage towards the beach are not really suitable for anyone who is not sure-footed, so this should also be made clear on the listing. In addition, the local information on the listing (and on others in the same area) will need to be amended as the nearest pub/restaurant is now 3 miles away in Kilchoan because the Sonachan Hotel is now a private residence. I hope this feedback has been helpful, thank you.

Our Alaskan Malamute had fun being able to go to the beach, mountain walks or just lying outside the cottage looking out at the sea. Cosy cottage, heating definitely not a problem. Wood burner at night is the best for staying warm and toasty. Just the right size for the 2 of us.

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?
