Romantic and remote refurbished blackhouse
If you’re looking for a remote getaway then look no further than West Cottage, one of four holiday cottages located in Haunn, near Treshnish Point in Mull. West Cottage offers the perfect setting for a romantic escape for two, or for a family of three looking to get away somewhere different and have an adventure.
This delightful cottage is a traditional blackhouse, small but perfectly formed, with a open plan kitchen-living room which offers dramatic sea views from two large windows. There’s also a log-burning stove, a dining table, and plenty of comfortable seating in the living area.
There’s a comfortable day bed in the corner of the living room, which sleeps one person, but also serves as a cosy spot to curl up with a cup of tea and one of the many books on offer on the shelves. Plus, this side of the house has underfloor heating, to keep you extra snug on chilly days!
The bedroom is spacious, with a very comfortable king-size bed. The bedroom has lots of natural light thanks to the dual-aspect windows, which offer yet more impressive views over to the sea on one side and the green rocky hills on the other, and plenty of wardrobe and drawer space. The bathroom is sizeable, with a large rain-shower, a heated towel rail, and plenty of space for your toiletries.
Fabulous place to relax and unwind
This is a tastefully decorated home-from-home, with modern boho-chic touches alongside the traditional, rustic features you’d expect in a traditional Highland cottage. It is well-equipped, with almost everything you’d expect to find in a remote self-catering holiday cottage.
It’s a fabulous place to relax and unwind and the views alone are unbeatable. If what you’re looking for is a peaceful, idyllic escape, West Haunn is the place for you!
Incredible seascapes and wild surroundings
No Television or Netflix in the West Cottage, since the focus is on enjoying the incredible seascapes and wild surroundings with your loved one, but there is a CD player if you enjoy some music whilst cooking, reading, playing board games, or simply staring out the window at the breathtaking views. There’s no Wi-Fi either , but most networks will get some kind of signal. If not, at the main farmstead there’s a convenient room with WiFi, as well as a phone and laundry facilities, and a big chest freezer full of amazing cuts of meat that have come straight from the farm.
This is an eco-friendly farm, so there are also recycling and composting bins available at the main farmstead. They are really committed to sustainable tourism and the passionate owners, who are lovely and very helpful, encourage their guests to take responsibility for their own energy consumption, by paying for their metered heating and electricity usage at the end of their stay. They take these costs into account when setting the cottage rental prices.
Delightful cottage for two on Magical Mull
The drive to West Cottage from the ferry terminal at Craignure takes just over an hour (or longer if you take it really slowly to appreciate the spectacular scenery), and the last leg takes you two miles down a rough farm track, to the cliff edge on the north-west side of Mull. Keep an eye out for all kinds of animals on the drive, including sheep, deer, horses, Highland cows, and birds of prey.
West Cottage is the furthest out of the small group of holiday homes there, almost on the sea, making it feel all the more secluded and exciting.
West Haunn is a delightful cottage for two, offering a relaxing escape in this remote, spectacular setting on the magical Isle of Mull.
