Traditional style cottage in renowned garden on NW coast of Mull with stunning views. Bed and cooked breakfast included in price.

Parlo Italiano et un po' di francese.

The space
Large double room with ensuite shower room in traditional-style cottage in fabulous location by the coast with views over Loch Tuath to the Isle of Ulva and the Treshnish Islands. An extra mattress on the floor can be provided for an additional charge. Cooked breakfast is served in the farmhouse style kitchen with Aga, and features local, seasonal produce: home-baked bread , eggs from own hens and Isle of Mull dry-cured bacon. Other dietary requirements by prior agreement.
Lip na Cloiche has a wonderful garden, featured in numerous magazines, including Country Living and The English Garden. It is on a steep slope and planted with a huge range of shrubs and herbaceous, and is maintained solely by Lucy. There is a wonderful seating area at the top to enjoy the view and watch for wildlife: there are frequent sightings of eagles and otters.
Lucy also makes cards and crafts from driftwood and other found objects, a selection is for sale at the cottage.
Ballygown Bay – 200 metres in front of the cottage – is sheltered and great for launching kyacks to explore the coast and neighbouring islands. The hills behind the cottage provide excellent hillwalking.
Lip na Cloiche is an ideal stop-off point for cyclists on the west coast. It is also an excellent base from which to explore the offshore islands. Ulva Ferry is 2 ½ miles away: there is a ferry over to the Isle of Ulva – wonderful for walking, wildlife and the renowned Boathouse Restaurant. Sea trips to Staffa, the Treshnish Islands and Iona also leave from Ulva Ferry, also sea eagle viewing trips.
Because of rural location with no scheduled bus service, Lip na Cloiche is not recommended for those without their own transportation.
Ballygown restaurant (BYOB) is just down the road for excellent evening meals in friendly location, three nights a week (ballygownmull:gmail.com). There is a restaurant in Dervaig (7 miles), The Bellachroy, which also does pub meals, and just beyond Dervaig An Birlinn Restaurant. In Tobermory (14 miles) Cafe Fish is very popular, or MacGochan's for pub meals. Booking is strongly recommended for all restaurants.

Guest access
Sitting room with open fire. Guests unfortunately do not have access to kitchen.

Other things to note
Please note that Lip na Cloiche is quite remote and may not be suitable for the less-active who do not have their own transport.
