The cottage is centrally heated and very comfortable throughout. The cosy sitting room has original wooden beams and a multi-fuel stove in a traditional stone fireplace at its heart, making the perfect spot to toast your toes of an evening. The kitchen/dining room is spacious and very well equipped. It even has a dishwasher so you don’t have to worry about the chore of washing up.
There is also a handy downstairs double bedroom downstairs, as well as a handy WC and a family bathroom with bath and shower over.
Upstairs are two charming bedrooms, a double and a twin, that both have coombed ceilings and original gate latch doors.
The cottage is quietly situated off a single-track road to Bunessan and sits in a grassed garden that has a small burn running through it (care to be taken with children). There is parking right by the door and a little patio seating area (with furniture). The owner lives in a small cottage extension that adjoins one of the gable ends of the cottage.
Mull is the most enchanting of Scottish islands which really does have it all, glorious scenery, quiet sea inlets, some superb beaches and its picture book 'capital', Tobermory (42 miles) with its colourful painted houses.
The car ferry over from Oban on the mainland docks at Craignure (29 miles) and there is also a ferry service that links Lochaline in Movern to Fishnish (35 miles). The majority of the roads on the island are single track with passing places along the way that should be pulled into to allow oncoming traffic to pass or for faster traffic behind to overtake.
The little village of Bunessan, that gave its name to the tune of the traditional ‘Morning has Broken’ song, is just a 5 minute walk away from the cottage. It has a couple of little shops and a hotel with a bar and restaurant if you fancy a night off from cooking.
To the very west of the island is the village of Fionnphort (6 miles) that has a grocery shop/PO and a pub. It also has a ferry port from which you can take the 10 minute ferry ride over to the lovely Isle of Iona. The island has as amazing atmosphere, an impressive restored Abbey, very informal golf course and stunning white sandy beaches surrounded by sparkling turquoise waters. It is also known for its unusual machair landscape that is home to a variety of rare birdlife, some of which are protected species.
Boat trips are also available from Fionnphort out to the little uninhabited island of Staffa where dolphins and even basking sharks can often be spotted in the waters en route. Staffa is a geological wonder with an unusual coastline of hexagonal basalt columns that form quite an amazing sight as you approach. No trip to the island would be complete without a visit to the Fingal’s Cave, an enchanting sea cave which you can go inside and explore or climb the columns that surround it.
There are lots of sandy beaches and quiet coves nearby and the beach at Carsaig Bay (13 miles) is particularly picturesque. You can sail, dive, fish, walk the surrounding hills or play golf on one of the island’s two golf courses. Lovers of birds and wildlife will want to keep an eye out for buzzards and eagles, as well as dolphins and even Minke whales and basking sharks in the surrounding waters.
