Park up in Mallaig before travelling by passenger ferry to your location, venture over the moorland and enjoy the scenic walk to get to your doorstep, or alternatively, travel by charter boat where you can soak in views of the breath-taking coastline and even have the chance to spot porpoises and dolphins! Inside, be instantly welcomed by the splendidly-designed, open-plan living space, where the natural light illuminates the kitchen, dining area and sitting area.
