The Dorran enjoys an idyllic setting on the Isle of Mull’s west coast, overlooking Kilfinichen Bay. The house is perfectly placed to allow guests to enjoy the ever-changing sea views, with the rising and falling tide and the weather rolling in from the Atlantic.
After driving through Glen More to reach the cottage, you leave the single track road that follows the shore of Loch Scridain and a short track leads to The Dorran. This continues a short distance on to the neighbouring cottage, Fisherman's Bothy.
The Dorran is a detached, single storey property sitting within an enclosed garden area. There is ample parking space for two cars. You enter the cottage into the kitchen dining area, which is well equipped and looks out over the rear garden. The dining table comfortably seats four and a large L-shaped hall leads too all other rooms.
The living room is very comfortably furnished with a large picture window framing the view over the bay. The neutral colours, natural light and finishing touches make this a relaxing living space. The wood burning stove is a great addition for making the house cosy in the evenings, along with a selection of books and games to enjoy.
The double bedroom is a spacious room, which also has superb sea views over the bay. There is lots of storage space and a super king sized bed. The twin bedroom is generously proportioned too and has views to the rear garden. Quality bedding and linen ensure a good night's sleep and there is built-in storage space and a dressing table provided.
The family bathroom is well appointed with a bath with shower over, basin and w.c. From the hall, there is a front porch area with a second external door leading to the front garden where there is an outdoor dining table and chairs, lawned areas and excellent views.
The Dorran is an excellent choice for guests seeking a comfortable and homely cottage in a stunning setting on Mull’s west coast. You can launch kayaks and small boats from the shoreline, explore the fantastic walking opportunities in the area, or take to two wheels and see the surrounds by bike.
Nearby, the Tiroran hotel has a café and well regarded restaurant (under two miles from the cottage), and a track from here follows the coast of the Ardnameanach peninsula, also known as 'The Wilderness'. The area has an abundance of wildlife, owing to the varying habitats on offer, and there are local guides who can take you out for the day to try and spot some the sea eagles that nest in the area, or otters around the coast.
