About this property

  • Tigh Na Failte is a delightful detached bungalow set in a magnificent beachside location with uninterrupted open aspects to the Isle of Iona. The bungalow is of Dorran construction (non-standard) but was built to take full advantage of the magnificent open aspects. The accommodation is decorated in pale tones on both walls and floors giving it a light and airy feel and it begins with an entrance porch opening into the hallway. This in turn leads into the heart of the property: a bright and generously sized (29 ft long) open plan sitting room / dining room with beautiful open aspects framed by large picture windows and a working open fireplace making the space cosy in colder weather. The modern fitted kitchen is equipped with an excellent range of light grey base and wall mounted units and there are three double bedrooms (one with an en suite shower room), built in wardrobes and a bathroom, all immaculately presented, as is the entire property.

    The property is surrounded by carefully tended south westerly lawned gardens with the front garden leading directly down to the beach. Tigh Na Failte could make a wonderful main residence, second home or be utilised as a holiday rental business (our clients have successfully let out this property for many years).

This charming bungalow is deceptive - it is much bigger than it seems and has something of a New England beach house feel inside. The waterside location provides an ever-changing vista of skies and birdlife, making this both a wonderful permanent home or a very appealing holiday let.

Local information

  • Tigh Na Failte occupies a beautiful beachside position with panoramic, uninterrupted open views over to the Isle of Iona.
  • Fionnphort has a ferry to Iona and trips to Staffa (Fingal's Cave) and the Treshnish Isles.
  • The Fionnphort area also houses the multi award-winning Ninth Wave Restaurant, The Keel Row Pub/Restaurant and The Ferry Shop selling groceries, hardware, books and souvenirs.
  • From the windows of this property our clients have seen white-tailed eagles, hen harriers, cuckoos, shelducks and several beach dwelling birds. Otters, gannets, dolphins, seals, cormorants, basking sharks and minke whales are frequently seen from the cottage feeding in the Sound of Iona.
  • Mull is a world renowned area for wildlife experiences having the largest population of breeding sea eagles in Europe and a huge population of red deer. The very elusive corncrake is regularly heard but hardly seen close to Fionnphort.
  • The cottage is within walking distance to idyllic high rated beaches such as Knockvologan, Fidden and The quarry Beach.
  • Northern lights (aurora borealis) are regularly seen from the cottage garden and the sunsets can be truly spectacular enhanced by the local red granite and can be seen from the lounge, dinning area and bedroom 2.
