Property Details

Tiree is a wonderful destination for family holiday's with over a dozen quiet white sandy beaches, 46 miles of coastline to walk around as well as perfect conditions for plenty of watersports such as body-boarding, wind-surfing, surfing and kite-surfing. The most westerly of the Inner Hebrides, Tiree is easily accessible via the daily car ferry service from Oban as well as daily flights from Glasgow - FlyBe provide a great connection service to most UK airports direct from Glasgow.

Machair Cottage has a stunning location on the machair (grassland) 150 yards from the sheltered, white sandy beach at Heanish on the beautiful Isle of Tiree. Superb dual aspect, sea views from all 4 main rooms in the cottage with easterly views over towards the Isle of Mull and westerly views across Hynish Bay. This traditional Tiree Blackhouse not only sits just yards from the beach but is less than 10 minutes walk (or 2 minutes in the car) to the main supermarket as well as the Scaranish Hotel bar and restaurant.

Brand new fitted kitchen in 2014 including washing machine, double oven, microwave and very well stocked with kitchen utensils. The cottage benefits from FreeSat TV, 32" LCD TV, DVD player and Playstation v1 with selection of DVDs and PlayStation games, storage heating throughout plus electric wall fires in the lounge and dining room, a large capacity hot water tank for the mains pressure shower and wireless broadband.
