The Cottage

 

Tigh Ban Lek is a traditionally built stone and wood cottage and is in an area of dramatic natural scenic beauty. It is situated in the Traighuanie 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. This 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 hooks and 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 provided).  The area underneath the stairs provides a storage point for the travel cot and highchair.

It has large built in wardrobes with mirrored doors and an additional chest of drawers for storage.  The en-suite bathroom provides a bath with power shower over the bath and a heated tiled floor.  It also provides plentiful storage for all your toiletries

The four seater sofa converts into a sofa bed which is a full short king bed size and easily sleeps two adults in comfort.
