Cruachan is a contemporary holiday cottage in the Isle of Mull’s main town Tobermory. Tobermory is famed for its stunning natural harbour fringed by woodland, with the iconic brightly coloured cottages of the town making it a well known destination.
Cruachan is located above the harbour in upper Tobermory, and is the first of three cottages that share this location, Lileas and Struan being the other two. Cruachan has ample parking for three cars and a lawned garden to the front of the cottage.
A raised patio looks over the lawn and is equipped with a picnic bench for alfresco dining. Entering the cottage, guests will find that the main open plan living, dining and kitchen area is a great family space with plenty of room to relax in. The house is well appointed throughout with light colours and modern furnishings creating a contemporary look.
The living room has comfortable seating for six guests and a wood burning stove creates a focal point for the room. The dining table accommodates up to six people, and there are great views from here, out to the front of the cottage with the church tower on Argyll terrace visible in the distance.
The kitchen is well appointed and equipped with all you need for your self-catering break on Mull, and the double glass doors can be slid open to allow easy access from the kitchen to the outside picnic table and patio area.
You’ll find a double bedroom on the ground floor with plenty of storage space. Also on the ground floor is a bathroom with shower unit, basin and w.c. A separate utility room features a washing machine and dryer and provides useful extra storage space.
Upstairs a landing leads to the second double bedroom, a light room thanks to double aspect velux windows (both with blinds), and a large south facing window. The twin room is also spacious with comfortable beds. The bathroom has a bath with shower over, basin and w.c.
Cruachan is a perfect base for those wanting to make the most of the amenities of Tobermory. There is lots to see and do in the area with a network of forestry track walks close by, boat trips departing from the harbour for wildlife watching excursions and trips to Staffa and Treshnish islands. You can take a tour of the whisky distillery in the town, visit the aquarium and museum, or head up to the cheese farm on the outskirts of town for lunch and some local produce.
