Stay in a characterful converted former Scottish church on the rugged Isle of Mull, with Loch Scridain on your doorstep and impressive local wildlife to look out for.
Benefiting from a unique setting overlooking the shores of Loch Scridain and Ben More, Mull’s highest mountain, this 19th-century former church is now a dreamy self-catering holiday home. Located in Pennyghael on the Isle of Mull, it welcomes up to ten guests and two dogs to enjoy an escape like no other. Ideal for those looking for somewhere off the beaten track and with a penchant for panoramas, it promises mornings of indulgence, days of exploration and evenings of pure R&R.
This spacious family homes pays full attention to the finer details whilst retaining a thoroughly welcoming vibe throughout. Homely and boasting huge arched windows that make the most of the views, it is both a wonderful base for exploration and a cosy retreat for celebrations with your nearest and dearest. Featuring exposed beams and lots of playful quirks, its undeniable charm offers plenty for the eye, without detracting from the spectacular views of the mountains and sea outside.
Particularly homely, the downstairs open-plan living area provides the perfect venue for convivial chat, family games and simply curling up with a book. With plenty of seating, including a luxurious window seat, wood burner and collection of books, the lounge holds the fort at one end of the space, whilst at the other you will find the well-equipped kitchen. Ideally sized for preparing meals for all the family, you can whisk your way around the kitchen while the children lay the dining table.
Taking the open-tread wooden staircase from the lounge to the first floor, you will come to five bedrooms. Each as cosy as the next and benefiting from glorious views, you can choose from two doubles and three twins. These comprise a master double bedroom and an en-suite bathroom with large traditional bath; a double bedroom with a shower room; two twin bedrooms and a bunk bedroom ideally suited to children.
Showing off stunning views over the loch, the enclosed garden is beautiful even on the rainiest of days. Sip your morning coffee at one of the picnic benches before taking a stroll down the private driveway and wandering along the banks of the loch. Enjoy it all, from morning paddles with your four-legged friends to watching ospreys and white-tailed sea eagles soar overhead to dreamy sundowners wrapped up in blankets. Nothing will beat spending time in this Scottish haven and refreshing your mind, body and soul with the heavenly scents of fresh mountain air.
