Fernbank Cottage (Bruach Roineach) is a modern and well-appointed Isle of Mull Cottage, which boasts an idyllic location at Calgary in Mull's north-west corner. There are good walks from the house exploring the surrounds, including a wooded trail to stunning Calgary beach. But with beautiful views from the balconies and a unique wooden walkway, you’d be forgiven for simply wanting to stay in.
Approaching the house, guests open a wooden gate to access the drive and garden area. There is ample off-road parking outside the house. The outside space is gravelled with tended borders and has a wooden decking area with outdoor seating.
Entering the house, there is a boot room, utility room and a large hallway, perfect for storing walking boots and outdoor gear for your getaway. There are also two spacious bedrooms – one twin and one double – each with outstanding views out over the hills and woodland that back Calgary beach. Bed linen and towels are provided for your stay. There is a large family bathroom on the ground floor, with a bath and shower over, basin and w.c.
Head upstairs and guests will enjoy the main living accommodation. A spacious, open plan area with great views from the large windows, make this a really fantastic place to relax in. There’s a wood burning stove, comfortable seating and there are two sets of doors leading onto balconies. These offer the perfect spots to take in the views of the beautiful surrounding countryside from a peaceful, secluded vantage point.
The dining area is a bright space with ample seating and space for six people. The open plan kitchen is well equipped with everything you need for a self-catering holiday, ensuring an effortless, home-from-home experience.
The main living area also leads onto a hall to the double bedroom and bathroom, which features a bath and shower over, basin and w.c. A second hallway provides access to the upstairs toilet, with a hand basin as well as space in which to hang coats and boots. From here, you can head outside to a wooden walkway, which is a really unique and favoured feature of the house.
This is a very well-kept property in a peaceful countryside setting, peaceful but with neighbouring properties and with fantastic walking opportunities available from the doorstep. Just down the road there is the tearoom and gallery at Calgary Art in Nature and there are a couple of options for evening meals within a 10-minute drive of the house. The village of Dervaig (10 minutes away) has an excellent village shop and a pub serving food. Tobermory, with all its amenities, shops and restaurants, is only a 25-minute drive away.
