Old Cottage, Tigh Cargaman - Map location

A snug one bed cottage hidden behind the main house in the grounds of Tigh Cargaman with views over the hosts’ extensive gardens. Located right opposite a beautiful sandy beach and only a short stroll from the centre of Port Ellen.

A snug one bed cottage hidden behind the main house in the grounds of Tigh Cargaman with views over the hosts’ extensive gardens. The Garden Cottage comes with it’s own parking space and also has it’s own private lawn area, although you often have to share it with the deer at night! Of particular note is that these cottages are set opposite the largest beach in Port Ellen and have lovely views of the sea and the distinctive Carraig Fhada lighthouse beyond. A frequent spectacle each day is watching the Calmac Ferry which seems to line up and head straight for the host’s large Victorian villa before doing it’s sharp turn into the Port just hidden from view.

The entrance door leads to the lounge/dinning/kitchen area. The lounge comprises of a two-seater sofa with satellite TV. Leading on from the lounge area is the kitchen/diner. The kitchen might be compact but it houses everything you need for a comfortable stay with all the usual kitchen equipment. If you happen to glance through the kitchen window at the right time, you might spot some of the locals. Deer, birds & the resident hedgehog family have been known to make an appearance from time to time.

 

Back through past the front door is the bedroom, comprising of two single beds both with cosy electric blankets for those chilly nights. The bedroom also leads on to the shower room comprising of a spacious corner shower, WC and sink with mirror.

 

It’s convenient location, a short stroll from Port Ellen and the ferry and on the bus route for the rest of the island means it’s perfect for travellers without a car, for those with a car off road parking is provided on the shared drive. The host welcomes guests to use the seating and the large front lawn; perfect for ‘sundowners’.

 

With the beach just opposite and only a scenic 5 minute stroll into the centre of Port Ellen, with arguably the best range of facilities on the island, this cottage earns it’s place in our club for being a peaceful little haven in a fab location and with a friendly host too.
