Property Description

On the sheltered south-east coast of Mull, between Craignure and Iona and overlooking the River Lussa and Loch Spelve, these two wonderful properties (refs USK and SAAX) enjoy a glorious secluded position within the 4,000-acre Ardura Estate. Bordered by the River Lussa to the north and east, and protected to the west by the masses of Ben Fhada and Glas Ben, the estate is home to highland cattle and sheep, as well as an abundance of other wildlife, including red deer, eagles, buzzards, seals and otters. The estate is recognised as a European Heritage Site for its otter population and ancient Caledonian oak forest. Craignure (6 miles) has a food shop, garage, post office, tourist information centre, pub and restaurant, and is the car ferry port to Oban. Ardura is a great base for visiting Iona, Tobermory and Duart Castle. Excellent hillwalking in the area. Nearby are a swimming pool, gym, health spa, golf courses and sandy beaches. Shops 6 miles.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The cottage has everything one needs and is very spacious yet cosy, with a log burner in the lounge and electric radiators throughout. The kitchen appears newly equipped with electric cooker, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and tumbledryer. The bedrooms are both very comfortable and the double room has the added bonus of an ensuite. The location is everything we expected and much more - Wow! Sept 2012.
  2. Very well equipped and extremely comfortable. Good furnishings - John Lewis duvet covers like our own at home! Would highly recommend this cottage. Good location for exploring the island. Red deer every day from the bedroom window. June 2012.
  3. Fantastic cottage ideally placed to explore the whole island. Lorraine & Neal were very welcoming! Booking again next year overall an excellent break away from it all. June 2012.
  4. The fact we were delighted to return to the cottage for a second visit speaks for itself!The setting is lovely and the welcome from the owners’ agents very friendly. Part of the pleasure is seeing the farming activity going on nearby and learning from them about sheep and cattle farming in Scotland. The views from the cottage windows are wonderful and we kept our binoculars on the window ledge so we didn’t miss any of the abundant wild life around. May 2012.
  5. What a warm welcome we had when we arrived. The cottage was so cosy and in a beautiful peaceful setting. Spotlessly clean, everything provided for a comfortable stay. We could not have asked for more. Great little enclosed garden safe for your dog and wonderful walks from the door. We found it difficult to leave and as soon as we returned home booked the cottage again for next year. Oct 2011.
  6. Fantastic cottage, caretaker could not have been more helpful. The wildlife from the cottage was breathtaking stags grazing in the field opposite and eagles spotted. We can’t enthuse enough about this cottage one of our best holidays ever. Aug 2011.
  7. A lovely cottage surrounded by farmland, water and wildlife. Very well kept. June 2011.
  8. A very friendly welcome from Lorraine who looks after the property, got our visit off to a very good start. The situation is splendid and we could even watch wildlife from inside the property and always had the binoculars handy! How often can you watch a white tailed sea eagle from your bathroom?! The position of the property made it convenient for visiting all parts of the lovely island of Mull, and there were also lovely walks from the door. We hope to return. May 2011.
  9. We have been here before, quite a few times, and only have to add that a a bigger and better television would help. Also more comfy settees would help. Apart from these two things everything was fine. A special thanks to Lorrainne and Neil (the couple who look after the place), who put us up overnight when violent storms on one day threatened to blow a tree on the cottage. Neil made the cottage safe the next morning. May 2011.
  10. Excellent cottage, very clean, home from home feel. May 2011.
  11. Very well equipped and in a stunning location. The caretaker couple could not have been nicer. Oct 2010.
  12. Fabulous location. Great views of Glen More. Well equipped cottage. Sept 2010.
  13. Aspect, views. Sept 2010.
  14. The cottage was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Sept 2010.
  15. Fantastic location with views from both the front and the back. We saw red deer everyday from the cottage and there is a short walk to the loch nearby.The whole cottage is light with large windows in all the key rooms. The lounge is very comfortable and the kitchen clean and has everything you need and in sufficient quantity.Both bedrooms are spacious and there is plenty of storage space.The caretaker was very friendly and helpful when needed, but not intrusive. July 2010.
  16. Stunning location with very friendly caretakers. July 2010.
  17. Interesting and quiet situation. July 2010.
  18. If you like peace and quiet with outstanding views from both back and front windows, then this is the place for you. We are very interested in wildlife and saw both eagles and deer without even going outside the cottage. The week passed in a flash and we were very sad when we had to leave. We shall be back! May 2010.
  19. Excellent. Very comfortable and Lorraine who looks after the property is lovely. Sept 2009.
  20. An excellent cottage with fabulous views of the hills and along the river. The estate staff were very welcoming. May 2009.
