Located in Ceallan [Kallin] and overlooking a pretty waterlily loch, named after its wild duck population (Loch nan Lach), this cosy cottage was built circa 1955 by my father and grandfather from local stone. This was transported by boat from a nearby island and broken with fire and water, all done without machinery. With this amazing history, the cottage was rebuilt from the inside, keeping these four outer walls intact.

The accommodation comprises porch with original church pews, living room with multi-fuel stove, kitchen/diner, bathroom and three bedrooms with beautiful views over loch, hill and sea. The feature mantelpiece was once part of a shipwrecked beam of wood, brought to shore by my grandfather, originally to support the downstairs floor. This was salvaged and refurbished in his memory.

The kitchen opens onto a secluded patio with uninterrupted, wilderness moorland views. Enjoy beautiful sunsets in this tranquil space. The wonderful quality of the light, with no pollution, is a joy to behold. In winter, the night sky is ever changing, whether it's the black of night or bathed in moonlight, lit by the twinkling of a myriad stars or the Aurora Borealis in the northern skies, you'll want to come back for more.
