  • “Absolutely perfect place to get away from it all (but still have wi-fi!)”
    The chalet is perfect for a couple with dogs and/or a small child (one bedroom). It's very well equipped and warm. Coming in October, we were prepared for the weather and brought books and DVDs (though there are plenty in the chalet). In spite of the wet and windy weather, we were out every day. Sanna Bay is only a mile away and is stunning. The local shop - Ferry Stores, Kilchoan, about 5 miles away - is very well stocked; you could live out of it for a week or two, but bring anything you'd ...

Sanna Bay is only a mile away and is stunning. The local shop - Ferry Stores, Kilchoan, about 5 miles away - is very well stocked; you could live out of it for a week or two, but bring anything you'd REALLY miss. Sanna Spice (delivered) is a MUST - find it on Facebook. Good walks out of the front door eg to abandoned village of Glendrian. Ben Hiant about 7 miles from Kilchoan gives the best "bangs to the buck" of any mountain I've climbed - it's only a Marilyn, but the views are spectacular.

The property

Kilchoan 5 miles.

This very comfortable and hi-spec log cabin has been tastefully furnished and lovingly equipped to provide every possible comfort for visitors to this beautiful and remote part of the Scottish Highlands.

Situated in a small and friendly hamlet on the owner's croft, this Highlands cottage would suit a couple who want to embrace the tranquillity and beauty of the area.

The accommodation in this Highlands cottage is all on one level, and is bright and airy with a spacious double bedroom situated just off the stunning open plan living area.

A sofa bed in the sitting area provides flexibility for guests, and double doors lead out onto a fabulous veranda with settee and seating areas, ideal for watching the eagles soaring overhead and soaking up the sea and mountain views.

A quiet single track road leads down from your Highlands cottage to Sanna Beach, a big stretch of quiet golden sand with clean blue sea for swimming in.

The village of Kilchoan provides good local services as does nearby Tobermory on the Isle of Mull.

The whole area is great for exploring and would suit walkers and cyclists but it is doubtful that guests will want to stray far from this wonderful Highlands cottage and fabulous location.

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 and restaurant, and from Mingary Pier there is a regular ferry service across the Sound of Mull to Tobermory, on the Isle of Mull. Tobermory offers visitors enhanced services and it is quite feasible to take the ferry across for a nice meal out in one of Tobermory’s restaurants or perhaps do a little shopping? A short drive away is Ardnamurchan Point complete with its own lighthouse and visitors 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, Rum and Canna?
