Property Description



Centrally located in the popular coastal village of Mallaig, with it’s bustling port and marina, the subjects of sale form a most attractive, traditional detached cottage, set in garden grounds with private parking. Enjoying an elevated position with views towards the bay, Shore Cottage is in immaculate order both externally and internally, and is beautifully presented. Offering deceptively spacious accommodation, in a convenient layout over two levels, the property is double glazed with electric wet central heating. Utterly charming throughout, the current owners have sympathetically upgraded and modernised the property over recent years, resulting in a “walk-in” condition home. Boasting superb features including a spacious lounge, impressive dining kitchen with integral appliances and oak flooring, generous bedrooms and contemporary shower room, the cottage also benefits from fresh, neutral décor and flooring. Due to the size and location, the property would be ideally suited as a superb permanent home, as an idyllic holiday retreat or as an exciting investment opportunity for the buoyant self-catering market.

Mallaig is a popular west coast village, situated at the end of the “Road to the Isles” from Fort William to Mallaig. With its coastal  situation, it is an ideal  location from which to explore this extremely attractive part of the Highlands. Ferries operated by Caledonian MacBrayne and Western Isles Cruises sail from the port to Armadale on the Isle of Skye, Inverie in Knoydart, and the Isles of Rùm, Eigg, Muck, and Canna. The village itself has hotels, restaurants, shops, superb bakery, gallery, primary and secondary schools, while further facilities are available in Fort William, to which there is a link by both road and rail, including the Jacobite Steam Train.

Offset with mature trees, hedging, shrubs, bushes and seasonal planting, a wooden decked patio area also features, providing a fantastic entertaining area which is a real “sun-trap”.

Travel Directions

From Fort William, travel on the A830 Road to the Isles to Mallaig for 45 miles. When entering the village, turn right at the roundabout, past the Co-op and the pelican crossing. As the road bears left round the bay, take the road on the right hand side for Gillies Park and turn right immediately. Shore Cottage is the first property on the right hand side with the For Sale sign.
