The House

Suil Na Mara was completed at the end of 2013 so is still a fairly new property.  We are now in our 6th year of successfully renting this lovely holiday home and have many positive comments in our guest book.  The house, which guests have often referred to as a 'Tardis' sleeps up to 8 people in four bedrooms and has far reaching views towards the Sound of Mull and other islands. 

Suil Na Mara is extremely well equipped and has many additional touches to make a stay there extra special.

With an open plan design downstairs, Suil Na Mara offers guests, a light, tastefully decorated house which has low level switches in every room making it suitable for Wheelchair users. Suil Na Mara has hardwired smoke alarms and a carbon monoxide alarm.

Open plan to kitchen which has a washer dryer, dishwasher, breadmaker, ceramic hob stove, microwave and many other labour saving gadgets. Table with 6-8 chairs and breakfast bar with 2 stools.

Large bedroom/day room, with link zip bed (can either be two 3' singles or one large 6' Super King).  Small table and two tub chairs, wardrobe, chest of drawers and bedside cabinets.  Mini Telescope.  This room has far reaching views out to sea and towards Mull.

Bathroom with Shower, basin and WC and heated towel rail. (activated by a switch in the master bedroom).

Bedroom with two single beds, wardrobe, chest of drawers, bedside cabinets and far reaching views.

Outside the house is a long gravelled path with parking for more than one vehicle.  The ground has been seeded several times with a couch type grass to try to encourage it to be more like the island Machair environment.  This is not a lawn but a natural area of varying grasses (and the occasional thistle).  We hope to further landscape this in the coming years.

We do allow well behaved pets to stay at Suil Na Mara - see Terms and Conditions for further information.
