Tenure: Freehold

Sunlight Cottage sits in a prime, seafront location in the small settlement of Kintra, a former fishing community that was built by the Duke of Argyll. Kintra lies approximately two miles north east of Fionnphort, and is mostly laid out in the form of a line of houses parallel to the shore. To the front, Kintra Bay is sheltered by numerous small islands and outcrops of local granite stones.

Fionnphort, the principal port of the Ross of Mull is the base for the ferry service between Mull and Iona and has a museum, shop, post office and restaurant.

Approximately eight miles from Kintra, and the capital of the Ross of Mull, the village of Bunessan has the usual village amenities including a shop, post office and a primary school. There is also a popular hotel serving bar meals, a restaurant, a doctorsí surgery, a police station and a fire station.

Tobermory is approximately 57 miles away on the north of the island.

The Isle of Mull
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 Isle of Mull boasts extraordinary and diverse scenery. From the dramatic Gribun cliffs and the shark-fin peak of Ben More to the white sands of The Ross, Mull has undoubted appeal for all. A multitude of sea lochs give Mull over 500km of coastline to be explored by kayaks, yachts and divers, or on land by foot or mountain bike. The awe-inspiring landscape is home to a vast range of wildlife, including golden eagles, sea eagles, otters and seals.

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

From Craignure leave the ferry terminal and turn left onto the road signposted for Bunessan. Once through Bunessan, proceed to Fionnphort ad take the Kintra turning. Head as far as possible down the road into the village. Park in the car park and the property is the third house over the bridge. It has a granite front and a maroon front door.

Sunlight Cottage is a traditional semi-detached stone built one and a half storey cottage with a tiled roof and a harled exterior. Originally built by the Duke of Argyll as part of a small fishing community, the property has been extended and modernised over the years, and would be an ideal permanent home, weekend bolthole, or holiday let.

The accommodation is relatively spacious and well laid-out, and whilst it may benefit from a little cosmetic upgrading, it retains several of its original features and character, is in walk-in condition and has double glazing and electric heating.

Inside, the property is accessed via a hall which has doors to the lounge and bedroom 1. Bedroom 1 has a window facing north west to the front with superb views. There is a tiled fire surround, mantel and hearth in which sits an open fire. The room has a wood panelled ceiling and a fitted carpet.

There is under-stair storage, and the room is decorated in a neutral colour with a fitted carpet.

From the lounge, a rear hall leads to the kitchen and bathroom, and has a glazed internal door to a side vestibule, which in turn has an external door to the side garden and a cupboard which houses the hot water tank.

The kitchen/day room is a bright and airy room with sunny dual aspect windows to the south west and south east. There are a range of fitted floor units, and ample space for kitchen appliances as well as space for a dining table. There is a mix of parquet-style flooring and a fitted carpet.
