Traigh Mhor (pronounced ‘try vohr’) is situated in an idyllic spot on a small working croft just 200 yards away from the stunning white sands and turquoise waters of Gott Bay on the Isle of Tiree in the Inner Hebrides.
This traditional cottage has been lovingly modernised whilst retaining many of its charming original features, including the wood-panelled ceilings of what was once the island’s Registry Office.
The warm and inviting sitting room has comfortable seating around the open fire that sits in an impressive original stone fireplace. The large south-facing picture windows keep the room light and bright and offer some fantastic sea views.
The modern, well-equipped kitchen has a dining area and a little multi-fuel stove to keep it cosy during lingering evening meals. The bathroom has a bath with shower over and an interesting original marble washstand. There is also a handy drying room.
Upstairs the rooms have slightly coombed ceilings and are divided up by the original wood panel partitions. There is a twin bedroom and two double bedrooms, one of which has an additional single bedroom off it.
Outside there is parking within the large enclosed garden (with furniture), which is laid to grass with a sunny southerly-facing aspect that is perfect for sitting and admiring the wonderful views of the bay. On a clear day you can even see the Treshnish Isles, Iona and the Isle of Mull off in the distance. There is also a shed that provides useful storage for bikes, etc.
The ferry across from Oban (vehicles and foot passengers) docks at Scarinish (2 miles). The ferry can get quite busy, particularly at weekends, and as tickets must be pre-booked we recommend that you book your ferry tickets at the same time as you book your holiday (see Calmac Ferries website). You can also fly across to Tiree from either Oban or Glasgow and car hire is available.
