The Studio Apartment sits at the head of Duart Bay, and has fantastic views over the sea to the hills of Morven beyond, as well as the dramatic Duart castle on its cliff top perch. Just a short distance from Craignure, with its village shop, cafe, pub and golf course, this modern studio apartment sits within a group of beautifully converted farm buildings. This is a warm, comfortable, well equipped self catering property ideal for couples searching for that island hideaway.
The Studio offers a great base from which to view wildlife, including the many marine mammals to be seen in the Sound of Mull. There are great walks to be had along the coastline of Duart Bay, a favourate haunt of the local otters.
Parking in the courtyard the Studio is accessed via a roomy, light covered porch. Entering into the hallway, there is a toilet and single bedroom on the ground floor. The downstairs single has good sea views and is comfortably furnished.

The kitchen is well equipped for self catering, and has excellent views from the window above the kitchen sink. There is also a dining area by the window in the main living space.
The double bedroom has plenty of storage space and great views from the windows toward the mountains of mainland Scotland. The main bathroom is upstairs too with a basin, toilet and bath with shower attachment.
The Studio is a building conversion and benefits by being well insulated, and purpose built. It makes for a comfortable base for a holiday on this Isle of Mull. There is also a small private garden area with table and chairs for outside dining with spectacular views.
The location, halfway along the road to Duart castle, is superb. A walk down to the shore will reward with excellent views and good opportunities to see wildlife. A fifteen minute walk to the castle and Duart headland, along the single track road, offers outstanding panoramic views, rocky coast and a small sandy beach. There is also a tearoom at Duart to refuel for the fifteen minute return walk.
