Murdo's Cottage

Murdo's Cottage from the paddock belowSleeps four-five.
A traditional stone croft cottage located in a secluded sand heltered spot, overlooking pasture, the sea and the mountains on the mainland. The springy lawn catches the morning sun, and geese and cattle share the pasture beyond. You will feel far away from it all here, but the café and post office are just a five minute walk.

Murdo's KitchenAccess is an easy 10 minute walk from the pier, without any steep inclines (your luggage will be transported by quad bike). The house is one of the most traditional on Tanera, and was home to the Island's last resident, Murdo, prior to the population hitting zero in the 1930's.


Murdo's sitting room with open fire placeDownstairs: Comprises a cosy sitting-room with an open fire, a kitchen with wood-fired stove, gas cooker, dining table, and fridge. The bathroom has a shower over the bath, wash-basin and toilet. The porch provides for a lovely sitting area with fantastic views accross Badentarbet Bay and plenty of room for outdoor gear.

Please bear in mind when booking: In the Spring of 2011 we replaced the oil-fired rayburn with a wood-fired stove to provide the cottage's hot water. This lovely piece of kit needs to be fed manually with firewood (provided at no extra cost), which is the responsibility of the cottage's occupants. It is not too onerous at all - our visitors generally enjoy the task! - and full training is provided.

Murdo's twin bed roomUpstairs: Comprises one double bedroom, one twin bedroom and a small single bedroom. All rooms enjoy wonderful views across the bay to the hills of Coigach beyond.
