Property Description


Quietly situated on the outskirts of Bunessan village, Mill Cottage forms an attractive traditional stone cottage, set in garden grounds of around 0.25 acres. Neutrally decorated and in very good order throughout, the sale offers an ideal opportunity to acquire a generous family home which benefits from double glazing, oil fired central heating and a multi-fuel stove. The large dining kitchen, wooden staircase and bright, well presented bedrooms are most attractive features. Due to the size, location and flexibility of the accommodation on offer, Mill Cottage would make an ideal family home, a superb holiday retreat or an exciting business prospect for the self-catering market. Subject to the necessary planning consents, the adjoining storage area could provide ancillary accommodation.

Bunessan is the largest village on the Ross of Mull and lies approximately 29 miles south of Craignure. Facilities include a well-stocked grocer’s shop (including Post Office services), gift shop, hotel, primary school, church, doctor’s surgery and police station. Mull itself is the most accessible of all the Inner Hebridean Islands, only a two hour drive north-west of Glasgow and a 45 minute sailing from Oban with regular daily sailings also from Fishnish to Lochaline and Tobermory to Kilchoan. A popular tourist destination, the island is wonderfully diverse, with towering sea cliffs, white sandy beaches and a large mountain range with the peak of Ben More rising to over 3,000 feet. The island is also considered to be one of best locations in Britain for wildlife spotting, with frequent sightings of dolphins, otters, eagles and red deer.
