Charming detached property located on the beautiful unspoilt Isle of Luing. The cottage benefits from magnificent sea views and has two wood burners one in the lounge and kitchen perfect for cosy nights in.

This stunning detached house on the tranquil Isle of Luing sits proudly overlooking the water with far-reaching views of the surrounding islands including Mull. It’s the perfect place for friends and families to spend quality time together in beautiful surroundings. The Isle of Luing is accessed via the Cuan Ferry which runs frequently throughout the day. At only 6 miles long and 1.5 miles wide, the slate island in the Firth of Lorn is ideal for exploring on foot or by bike. With a population of only 200 and few visitors, its unspoilt natural beauty and tranquillity are what makes this island so special. It also has an abundance of rare and interesting wildlife to watch and photograph, such as otters, seals, porpoises and dolphins in the water and a variety of birds of prey in the sky. The house is located within half a mile of the local shop/post office.

On entering this delightful property, you will notice how spacious it is. Neutral colours contrast with the warm wooden tones throughout, whilst the odd splash of blue reminds you of the waterside location.

As you enter, the large lounge is on your left with comfy sofas in front of a wood burner and views out to the front and across the harbour. Across the hall, you’ll find the bright, modern kitchen and dining area, which also has a wood burner. Completing the ground floor is the lovely, fresh family bathroom.

Upstairs, there are two well-appointed king-size bedrooms, both with a seating area so you can enjoy a quiet moment, if needed. There’s also a cosy twin room and a separate WC. All the bedrooms have wonderful sea views.

Outside, there is an enclosed garden with seating for a spot of al fresco dining while you enjoy the coastal panoramas. There is plenty of off-road parking.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • 3 bedrooms – 2 king-size and 1 twin
  • 1 bathroom and 1 separate WC
  • 2 wood burners (first basket of logs included)
  • Electric oven and hob, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave and fridge/freezer
  • Electric and central heating included
  • Bed linen and towels included
  • Ample off-road parking
  • Wi-Fi included
  • 1 dog welcome
  • Beach, restaurant/pub and shop within walking distance
  • TV/DVD in lounge

The house is located in the main 'centre' of the island, Cullipool. As well as the local shop, you will also find the Atlantic Islands Centre, which serves as a hub for the island with a heritage/arts centre and a café/restaurant (0.5 miles). Cullipool is the only place to find public toilets on the island.

Luing is predominantly low-lying, with a maximum height of 300ft, so it is the ideal place for leisurely walking and cycling, and on a clear night, the sunsets are unforgettable against the backdrop of the neighbouring islands.

The Cuan Ferry, which leaves the terminal 2.5 miles north of the property, takes passengers to the mainland. From here, you can travel 19 miles north to the seafood capital of Scotland, Oban. This seaside town has a stunning coastline and is surrounded by beautiful countryside. The town centre is compact with museums, galleries and eateries to explore.

From Oban, you can take a number of boat trips to the surrounding islands, including one where you can see three in a day. If you have good sea legs, you could also take a Seafari from Easdale (7 miles) to the Gulf of Corryvreckan where you'll find the world's third largest whirlpool.

This property is personally managed by Lucy.

This cottage is beautiful with amazing views. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a big fridge-freezer to do a mainland shop and stock up for a week. Great rock pooling and fun beaches right on the doorstep so with children you don't have to go far. Cycling is great because the island isn't very hilly. Travel cot has additional mattress whichRead more makes a huge difference to baby comfort. Lovely garden with bench for al fresco dining. It is an idyllic place. Hide

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
