The Window Seat is evidence of the proverb ‘good things come in small packages’. An imaginative use of the space, has created a very inviting place to stay, filled with natural light. Located by Loch Don in the Isle of Mull’s south east, The Window Seat offers a perfect slice of top quality self-catering accommodation with contemporary styling; luxurious furnishings and superb views over the waters of the loch.
Located at Craigdarroch, this self-contained holiday property with its own private entrance and parking space, is located at one end of the owner's house. A pathway leads to the rear of the property to the entrance, where there is an enclosed patio area with outdoor tables and chairs.
Guests enter through double glass doors, where there is an area for coats and boots. The double-height ceiling and large windows introduce lots of natural light into the room. The sleek kitchen is very well equipped and laid out, and a wall mounted folding dining table is a clever addition, providing the perfect place to enjoy a lunch or evening meal and making best use of the space.
The living area also has double-height ceilings, comfortable sofas and beautiful contemporary furnishings. Splashes of colour in the artwork and finishing touches provide lovely accents; but the real attention grabber is the large window which looks out over Loch Don with the mainland mountains visible in the distance.
The window seat area is the ideal place to set up a scope, and look out for the abundant wildlife this area is known for. In fact, binoculars are provided for this purpose along with a good selection of reading material and books about the wildlife of Mull. An efficient wood burning stove adds a warm and cosy glow of an evening.
Also on the ground floor is a cool and contemporary bathroom with a large shower unit, basin and w.c. The staircase leads upstairs to the mezzanine bedroom area, a great space with high quality bedding and linen provided for guests.
The Window Seat is ideal for couples or singles who appreciate quality, hotel-style accommodation, with the convenience of self-catering facilities and the benefit of superb views. Much thought has gone into making this a very relaxing and comfortable place to stay.
Guests can make the most of the superb walks on offer in the area and abundant wildlife the habitats here provide shelter for. The single track road that leads to Grasspoint is a good starting point. An old stone humpbacked bridge spans the tidal upper reaches of the loch, and is a great place to see otters and sea trout heading up stream.
Red deer are commonly seen on the tidal grasslands of upper Loch Don and the area is abundant in bird life. From white-tailed and golden eagles to the smaller hen harriers and short eared owls, birdwatchers will be in their element.
Craignure (less than five minutes by car) is the closest village with a couple of shops, cafés and eateries as well as the Isle of Mull’s swimming pool and spa. This is an ideal location from which to explore all areas of Mull, being located centrally between Tobermory Mull’s main town to the north and Fionnphort (ferry port for Iona) in the south.
