5 Strongarbh is situated in a sought after residential development occupying an enviable, elevated position in upper Tobermory, within easy reach of the town’s colourful harbour and Main Street and all the facilities and amenities on offer there.

The second largest of the Inner Hebrides, Mull is a highly accessible island, being reached by a forty-five minute vehicular ferry from Oban. Services from Lochaline on Morvern and Kilchoan on the Ardnamurchan peninsula are also available. There is a small airstrip at Glenforsa suitable for private aircraft and a main line train service from Glasgow to Oban, with some trains connecting with the ferry.

The colourful harbour town of Tobermory is a popular tourist destination and as such provides an excellent range of dining, cultural and shopping opportunities as well as standard services, including a medical centre, churches, a high school with a primary section, and good sports facilities including a scenic nine-hole golf course and tennis court.

Outside the buzz of Tobermory, the Isle of Mull boasts an extraordinary and diverse scenery. From the dramatic Gribun cliffs and the shark-fin peak of Ben More to the white sands of Calgary Bay, Mull has undoubted appeal for all. A multitude of sea lochs give Mull over 500km of coastline to be explored by kayaks, yachts, divers or on land by foot or mountain bike. The awe-inspiring landscape is also a strong lure for artists of every discipline.

Accompanying the varied scenery is a range of wildlife. Mull is home to a variety of rare birds including golden eagles, white-tailed sea eagles and hen harriers. The island is famous for its roaming herds of red deer, and otters may be seen dining on brown trout on the Ross of Mull or playing in secluded bays. Cetacean – and shark – watching trips are a favourite with tourists, as are trips to the Treshnish Isles to visit the local puffin and seal populations, or to Staffa to admire the stunning geology of Fingal’s Cave.

Due to its size and diverse range of attractions, Mull has a longer tourist season than many of the other Hebridean islands, still receiving large numbers of visitors into October. The island also hosts a number of music and arts festivals throughout the year, plus the Tour of Mull Rally.

On leaving the ferry terminal at Craignure, take the A849 sign-posted to Salen. Continue for approximately 22 miles until you come to the small roundabout at Tobermory. Go straight across the roundabout and bear immediately right into Breadalbane Street. Continue right down to the end of the road and turn left onto Back Brae. Follow the road around into Erray Road and turn right onto Western Road. Take the next left and bear to the left, following the single track road past the sign. Number 5 is on the left hand side and is named “Thistle Dubh”.

Strongarbh is a comfortable and well presented modern house, situated within its own sizeable garden in upper Tobermory. Enjoying an elevated position and with open views to the south, the property is light, sunny and spacious, and is currently being used as a holiday let, although it would be equally suitable as a family house.

Inside, the property is in walk-in condition and very good decorative order. The spacious lounge on the first floor is a light and airy room, enjoying a dual aspect with windows to the rear and also to the front taking full advantage of the views over Tobermory Bay.

There is excellent worktop space (including a breakfast bar) and dual aspect windows providing plenty of natural daylight. The décor is modern, clean and uncluttered with beech-effect units, stainless steel appliances and black marble-effect worksurfaces.

Each of the bedrooms which are all on the ground floor have light neutral décor and are cosy and comfortable. Bedroom 2 has its own en suite shower room. All are well-proportioned and either have fitted carpets or parquet flooring, and have plenty of room for storage.

The modern family bathroom is a pleasant spacious room with a white bathroom suite, large double shower and matching bathroom fitments. There is a laminate floor, extensive tiling round the bath and shower and the room is warmly lit by downlights.
