Treshnish Farm

Argyll & Bute

Walkers, nature lovers, couples will love this eco-friendly cottage near Calgary beach: a breath of warmth in the beautiful back of beyond


2 beds


1 bedroom


Sleeps 2


On Mull’s wild northwest coast, your heart will soar. Let it be blown back to the Charringtons’ award-winning farm, a 1,900-acre slice of nature where cattle and sheep roam happily amid birds, orchids and wildlife. Two bumpy miles and four gates from the road, in a cluster of four sea-facing crofters’ cottages (a mile from the farm), your restored traditional ‘blackhouse’ melts into the landscape. Open-plan but for a double room (and through this the neat bathroom) – how special to wake on your handmade oak bed to the sound and sight of the sea? Artworks and ethnic throws bring colour inside, there’s a bright corner kitchen, an alcove dining table with sea views and a wood-burner belting out the heat with a sofa just there for lolling on, book in hand. It’s a magical place for a couple or a small family and it’s blissfully free of mod cons – no TV but plenty of games and books. Heaven to lie in the shared garden watching for red deer by day and shooting stars at night. The setting is dramatic and remote but the welcome is warm, eco principles impressive, and Calgary beach is three miles as the sea eagle flies.

A wonderful setting. We stayed in studio cottage which is beautifully decorated and furnished, with lovely views to the sea and the sunset from the sunroom. Fabulous! We will definitely be returning!

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Carolyne Charrington

  • There is a lovely walk from Croig pier to Port na Ba. See if you can find the painted stone village in the sands...
  • The field that West Cottage sits in has been selected as one of the Coronation Meadows project, run by Plantlife. Our field is a donor meadow, so our flower seed will help establish or restore other meadows. Look at the Plantlife website for more info.
  • Watch the sea as you walk on the farm - you could see an otter, or a bottle-nosed dolphin or even a basking shark. Look up and you could catch sight of the White Tailed Sea Eagle, or a Hen Harrier hunting over the Haunn field.
  • Enjoy a little 'Puffin Therapy' by taking a trip from Ulva Ferry with local tour operator 'Turus Mara' to the beautiful Treshnish Isles. Our guests are eligible for a discount on their trips!
  • Mull & Iona have a Food Trail now, to help visitors (and locals) source the wonderful island produce available - farm shops, producer's markets and eateries. You will find some tasters waiting for you when you arrive!
  • Our cottages sit under wonderful dark skies, with no light pollution. Watch out for shooting stars, the Milky Way and the Northern Lights!
