About the property

Extensively refurbished in 2015, this cottage offers modern living, comfort and unrestricted views across the Firth of Lorn towards the Isle of Mull.

Downstairs comprises of an open plan living area with open coal fire, digital TV, DVD/CD players and a selection of board games & books. There is Wi-Fi available throughout. The kitchen/dining area is equipped with dishwasher, washing machine, fridge-freezer, microwave, ironing board and iron, and cooking utensils. The cottage sleeps 5 - 6 guests in three bedrooms, with the first double bedroom being located on the ground floor. A children's travel cot and highchair are available. As the property is pet free this means it is suitable for guests with allergies.

On the first floor are two further generous double bedrooms and the family bathroom, complete with a heated Easdale slate floor and free-standing bath.

Area Situated on the former slate mining island of Easdale, 15 miles south of the town of Oban in Argyll, the island has around 60 permanent inhabitants and has a fantastic sense of community; a warm welcome awaits any visitor. The island's local pub is open all year round and serves a selection of locally brewed ales. The attached tearoom/restaurant is open during the summer months and serves award-winning, locally caught seafood. Easdale is a peaceful and car free island, allowing the visitor unrestricted enjoyment of the natural environment.

There is a network of footpaths and it typically takes around 25 minutes to walk the entire island, which includes climbing the 125-ft hill that offers panoramic views of surrounding islands.

Access to Easdale Island is via a three-minute passenger ferry crossing from the village of Ellenabeich on the Isle of Seil. Oban; the gateway to the other Hebridean islands, is less than 30-minutes drive via the famous 'Bridge over the Atlantic' that connects the Isle of Seil to the rest of Scotland. A number of supermarkets and other general tourist facilities are available here.

The Easdale Island Community Hall stages regular entertainment throughout the year with nationally and internationally acclaimed acts performing to a full auditorium.

Seafari Adventures offer a number of high speed boat excursions departing from Ellenabeich, including trips to the world's second largest whirlpool at Corryvreckan with the opportunity to spot some of the local wildlife, which includes; whales, dolphins, basking sharks, white tailed eagles, deer, goats, seals and their pups.
