The Old Little Theatre and The Potting Shed are situated at Druimard House, owned by welcoming hosts and resident artists, Graham and Sally Bruce-Richards. The Old Little Theatre is detached from Druimard, in the grounds of the house and The Potting Shed is at one end of the house with an outlook towards the glen below, so each holiday let retains a feeling of privacy, each with their own parking space.
From the elevated position of the house, guests have a superb vantage point with a sweeping view of the glen below, with reed beds, woodland and sea to survey; a haven for a wide variety of flora and fauna. Bring a pair of binoculars or just sit back with a cup of coffee and relax in front of the huge windows. The property is also within easy walking distance of the village centre where there is a shop and the oldest inn on the island.
Nearest village: Dervaig (village shop and pub within walking distance)

Things to Do
Dervaig is a great location for those wanting to have easy access to both Tobermory and to some superb coastline in the area. Calgary beach is the best known beach on the island is only a ten minute drive from The Old Little Theatre where you can walk along the beautiful white sand and enjoy some great coastal walks. There is a gallery and tea room close by too, as well as a restaurant at Penmore (Am Birlinn), or another option at Ballygown on the west coast (fifteen minute drive).
In Dervaig itself, there is a village shop and pub, which serves lunches and evening meals during the summer months, and The Old Byre Heritage centre. Guests staying at the Old Little Theatre can walk to the edge of Loch Cuin within ten minutes, a pretty tidal loch, with a rocky shoreline. There's a nice woodland walk at Quinish too, which is on the opposite side of the village and various forestry tracks for mountain biking close by.
Tobermory is less than a twenty minute drive away, with its picturesque harbour, range of craft and gift shops and places to eat. The arts centre, museum and aquarium are all worth a visit and there are boat trips departing from both Tobermory and Ulva Ferry, on the west coast.
