Get away from the crowds. This picture postcard cottage is a hidden gem. Located on the edge of the historic village of Ellenabeich with its own walled garden and stunning views to Easdale Island it is a little piece of heaven.
Offering a true Scottish Island feel, of peace, quiet and remoteness whilst still being very accessible to the Kintyre Peninsula and Oban - "The Gateway to the Isles", this West Coast hideaway offers so much more.
From Garragh Mhor a short walk one way through the old slate mining village gives stunning views of Mull, Inish and the Garvellach islands and 5 minutes the other way takes you to the harbour, Oyster Bar and Restaurant. With the little village shop, Museum and dynamic sea adventures company SEAFARI all within 5 minutes of the B&B and Oban, just 15 miles to the north, this is a perfect location from which to base your holiday.
Dunmore Hill directly behind Garragh Mhor offers one of the best views in the Western Isles; local attractions and excursions are a plenty. Enjoy a Seaweed Foraging Trip, Wildlife Tour; Whirlpool or Seakayaking Adventure or the delights of the beautiful garden of An Cala. Visit Easdale Island with its quarry pools (one is great for swimming - the black slate warmed by the sun); The Puffer Tea shop and Restaurant (serving fabulous seafood and other local fayre) and the quaint car-free village (Photographer's love it here!). Many just like to sit and enjoy the peace and beauty from the many viewpoints around the village.
Garragh Mhor's sun porch, ('Sit-Innie' and several garden swings and decks 'Sit-ooties'); your own private access and key to the door; and attentive and relaxed hosts, offering a wealth of knowledge of the area means you will have a Home from Home experience.
Our recently decorated modern rooms are comfortable and well equipped, (many guests report their "great sleeps") and we pride ourselves on our varied breakfasts - ranging from FULL SCOTTISH to VEGGIE and VEGAN options and catering specially for those with allergies or intolerances.
Our glamping option (Gypsy Caravan) is currrently in the making and will soon be advertised. Come and see it being renovated by Daz - he made it from scratch many years ago!
Hosts, Jan (Nutritionist and Homoeopath) and Daz (Blacksmith and Wheelwright) have been seakayaking the west coast for many years. They are enthusiastic and passionate advocates for the area - "We know what delights await you and we plan to make your stay as comfortable and as enjyoyable as possible".
Whatever the weather; whatever your motivations - we can help you uncover the adventure, the wildlife, the beauty and the peace that will give you many happy memories and will surely have you wanting to return time and again. Many of our guests are regulars. We are building quite a tribe!
