Cuan Choluim Chille has been designed with the view in mind. There are wonderful sweeping panoramic views of the sea and islands beyond. This western coast of the island is celebrated for its quiet and remote nature, with a scattering of houses dotted along the rugged coastline.

Things to Do
If you are looking for peace and relaxation in a wonderful Scottish island setting, then look no further! The west coast is fantastic for cyclists and Ulva Ferry is a wonderful place to launch a sea kayak from. Equally, walkers will be in their element as the rugged west coast is well worth exploring on foot. The closest beach is Traigh na Cille (less than two miles from the house) which has a bay of fine grey sand. There is some lovely mature woodland in the surrounding area of Torloisk too.
The island of Ulva is a big draw for those visiting this part of the island. A short ride with the ferryman gives you access to this beautiful little island, inhabited by a handful of locals. The Boathouse restaurant provides delicious fresh seafood for those visiting and there are lots of waymarked trails criss-crossing the island. The flora and fauna is particularly good here and there is an old black house to look around too for those interested in the history of the island and its people. Ulva Ferry is also the point from which boats depart for tours to Staffa and the Treshnish islands.
Lip na Cloiche has a wonderful garden for visitors to explore (donations welcome) and Ballygown restaurant is also only a mile away from the house, where Jeanette provides fantastic home cooking in her family restaurant. The village of Dervaig is a twenty minute drive from the house and has a village shop and pub. Calgary is another great area which guests have easy access to (less than 30 minute drive). The beach here is superb and there is a tearoom and woodland walk which is great for children.
