Just a fifteen minute drive south of Craignure, in the south eastern corner of the island, this traditional three bedroomed holiday cottage nestled in the hillside, has stunning views overlooking Lochdon estuary and the surrounding mountains.
As you turn off toward Grasspoint after passing through the hamlet of Lochdon, the single track road takes you over a beautiful old bridge and up the hillside to where the property is situated alongside Stable Cottage. Guests can park directly outside the cottage in the courtyard. This is a really picturesque part of the island; the coastline at Grasspoint just a couple of miles further on is excellent for wildlife and has a sandy bay and rocky coastline to explore.
As you enter the cottage from the gravelled courtyard, the ground floor comprises of a kitchen, living room with cozy open fire, dining room and bathroom; a porch leads to the front garden with a bench for taking in the lovely surrounds. A wooden staircase leads to the top landing and the three bedrooms (a king sized double, twin and a single).
This is a homely self catering cottage with character and charm. There are many excellent walks accessible from the doorstep and previous guests have been known to set up telescopes in the garden and from the elevated viewpoint, watch the passing birds or deer roaming on the flats below.
The cottage is a ten minute drive from Craignure where there are several places to enjoy an evening meal, including the local pub, as well as a cafe for lunch, or coffee and cake during the day. Guests can get basic provisions and petrol at Craignure village and can take a tour of Duart Castle nearby. It’s a 45 minute drive to Tobemory and a similar distance to Fionnphort (where boats leave to Iona and Staffa) from this part of the island.
