Property Description

Iconic Architect-Designed Property

Perhaps one of the most iconic properties on the West Coast of Scotland, Taigh Dubh Na Mara, is an award winning, Architect-designed property, located in the most desirable area of Camusdarach at Morar.

Enjoying spectacular views, the sale offers a very rare opportunity to purchase a modern property with outbuilding, set in mature grounds.

Bedroom with En-Suite Cloakroom (currently used as an Art Studio) and Boot/Utility Room are on the ground floor. Three further Bedrooms, Master En-Suite and Family Bathroom are located on the first floor, whilst the Open-Plan Kitchen, Dining & Lounge are positioned on the second floor.

Situated in a stunning location, only a short walk from the famous dunes of Camusdarach beach, Taigh Dubh Na Mara was architecturally designed by Raw Architecture Workshop and was built to capture the spectacular sun rise views over the mountains and sun sets behind the islands, whilst offering interesting accommodation over three levels.

Externally, the property is built upon on a concrete base with a timer frame superstructure, using locally sourced timbers. Internally, the property has been thoughtfully designed to create a fantastic home, which flows over three levels. On entering the property, on the ground floor, there is a dark atmospheric feel. This level provides an en-suite bedroom (currently used as an art studio) and utility/boot room. Pendent lighting and the draw of natural light from a feature glazed panel leads you to a bespoke stairwell and the upper levels. The first floor is home to the bedrooms, with the master bedroom benefiting from a picture window and large   en-suite bathroom with walk-in rain shower. The top level, with its vaulted ceilings, boasts a modern kitchen, dining area and lounge with wall mounted wood burning stove. This area is flooded with light and boasts two cathedral windows, one with Juliet balcony and the other leading to an outside decking area. The open-plan space is divided with a most impressive hand crafted birch ply staircase. Taigh Dubh Na Mara benefits from the highest standard of energy efficiency, with under floor heating throughout provided by an air source heat pump, which qualifies for the greener energy Renewable Heat Incentive grant.

The garden grounds are laid in the main to lawn, offset with trees and shrubs. A gravelled driveway leads to the entrance of the property, outbuilding and provides ample parking. There is a decking area to the rear of the property.


Morar is a popular West Coast village, situated on the road between Fort William and Mallaig -”The Road to the Isles”. Taigh Dubh Na Mara’s privileged coastal position in Glenancross, is an ideal location from which to explore this extremely attractive part of the Highlands and Inner Isles. The village itself has a primary school, hotel, garage, church, etc with further facilities being available at Arisaig, Mallaig and Fort William – to which there is a link by both road and rail.
