Watch the Isle of Mull’s wonderful wildlife from the window at this charming holiday cottage!
Tigh na Mara is a traditional stone built croft cottage with a red tin roof that inside has a contemporary open plan interior. Well equipped with original artwork and fantastic sea views, this Isle of Mull holiday cottage also has a wealth of wildlife on the doorstep.
The house is set back from the winding single track road that leads to this beautiful corner of Mull and has a backdrop of mature trees. The sloping field leads down to the rocky shoreline where the tide rises and falls in front of the cottage. All sorts of wildlife frequent the shoreline and the land around the cottage is actively farmed as part of a working farm, so sheep and cattle are sometimes grazing around the cottage.
Stepping inside the cottage, the open plan living room is bright and welcoming with windows on both sides of the room and fantastic views of the surrounding hills and sea. There is comfortable seating, an electric stove, reading material and a television and DVD player here, as well as a well-equipped kitchen and dining table for two.
A utility room with a washing machine, dryer and fridge freezer leads through to the modern bathroom with underfloor heating, shower cubicle, basin and w.c. Guests will love to sink into a king-sized bed each night while still soaking up that stunning sea view. There’s also plenty of storage in the double bedroom.
The sea air and mountainous scenery make this a great place for a relaxing holiday. Outside the cottage the view is constantly changing and artists, photographers and wildlife enthusiasts will not be short of things to do. There is a rocky and pebbly coastline just in front of the holiday cottage and a mile and a half walk along a track leads to a secluded sandy bay.
It takes 30 minutes or so to reach the small village of Craignure in the car and Tobermory is a further 40 minutes’ drive from there, with its pretty harbour, shops, eateries, museum, arts centre and theatre. Heading west, it takes an hour and 15 minutes to reach Fionnphort, where there are regular boats departing to Iona, Staffa and the Treshnish islands (April to October). Tigh na Mara really is a brilliant rural base for your next adventure on Mull.
