  • "This is a cottage is definitely in a remote destination & a great escape to rewind & recharge the batteries."

    The beach nearby is lovely & with the right weather a fantastic retreat for the day. There's plenty of good walking & local places to visit, park up & sit in awe of the ever changing scenery. A trip to Mull is a must & an island we would love to return too but be aware the ferry is not bookable for the return passage & puts added pressure on you especially in high season with a limited service to ensure you get a space on the boat - its an 80 mile diversion if you miss it!! Wildlife spotting is great with eagles up above, otters in the lochs & red deer visiting the pastures right in front of the cottage on a nightly basis. However, the down sides : the main bed is just not adequate enough for 2 fully grown adults. After such a long drive to get there you want a bed that you can sleep in rather than be folded in half with a super soft mattress & an Ikea/B&Q at best bed frame that's low to the floor & not made to take anyone over the 12 stone threshold! My wife is also in a wheelchair & ramps to property starting to rot & although not sold out as a disabled cottagethe literature emphasises all on one level & open planned it lacks little aids that would just help a disabled client enjoy their stay that little bit more such as a simple arm bar to get on & off the toilet (which would have helped if it was a disabled height) or a rail in the shower to hold onto. Its also disappointing to find that TV didn't work (pre-warned as having signal issues) but fully operational & good Wifi signal which begs the question why there isn't a smart tv or box that operates through the internet. A little guide book of suggestions, eateries, food stores & places to visit would have also helped.

  • "We loved this log cabin!"

    Out of all the different places we have stayed in over the last 20 years, this is our favourite. The location is stunning -remote and with red deer wandering past. Mari the owner was so helpful and kind when we needed to ask something and the log cabin is large, spacious, warm and comfortable. We brought nearly everything to cook with withus, but the local shop does stock basics. Great trip to Mull and Staff to see eagles and dolphins. We will return.

    Sanna beach is beautiful, saw seals in the bay and had deer in the surrounding fields. I would definitely return!

  • "Cottage warm and spacious and in a lovely area."

    Down side was the black and moldey wood in the corners of the bedroom. Cottage could do with some repair work.

  • "The cabin was delightful."

    It's one downfall was the mattress.. That aside it was beyond our expectations and we will definitely be rebooking!

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?
