Tigh Ban Lek is a traditionally built stone and wood cottage and is an area of dramatic natural scenic beauty.  It is situated in the Traighuaine area, pronounced Tri-oo-ni and meaning Green Shore in Gaelic.  The detached house enjoys a prominent hillside location from where there are spectacular views south and west to Craobh Haven, Shuna, Luing, Scarba and Jura.  On a clear day Islay can also be seen.  It is a cottage with a difference, in a peaceful area surrounded by spectacular scenery.

The house was built in the late 90's and has been carefully incorporated into the hillside.  It is oriented to maximise the spectacular island views and seascapes which extend over 30 miles.  It is a light and bright property with many full length windows allowing you to take full advantage of the views from both floors.

Ground Floor

There is a small entrance porch with space for outdoor clothing leading into the hallway.  This provides access to both of the bedrooms within the property which have patio doors allowing direct access to the gardens.  There is an additional W.C. which has a washer/dryer for guests to use (no washing powder is provided).  The area underneath the stairs provides a storage point for the travel cot and highchair.

There are a large number of productive fruit trees and many herbs - feel free to help yourself when these are in season.  There are many other trees, shrubs and border plants that bring a lot of colour to the garden throughout the year.

The garden is not fully enclosed so children should be supervised.
