Architect-designed villa on the island of Mull with beautiful views over Bunessan Bay


Oran Na Mara occupies a beautiful elevated position facing westwards over Loch Na Laithaich (Bunessan Bay). The Bunessan area has a wide range of facilities including a GP surgery, Sub Post Office/Spar grocer, Bunessan Bakery/Café, Fingal's Cave souvenir shop, Church of Scotland, Baptist Church, primary school, village hall and The Argyll Arms Hotel. Fionnphort is approximately 5 miles away with 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 frequently see White-tailed and Golden Eagles, Hen Harriers, Great Northern Divers, Gannets, Terns and ground nesting birds including Skylark, Lapwing, Wheatear, Pipits and Warblers. Red Deer and Otters are regular visitors as are Common and Grey Seals. In the summer Basking Sharks, Dolphins and Porpoise can also be seen around the coastline. Mull has the largest breeding population of White-tailed (Sea) Eagles in Europe and the elusive Corncrake is a regular target species for 'twitchers' from all over the country.

The island of Mull was formed by volcanic activity many millions of years ago. Its northern coast is separated by the Sound of Mull from the land mass of Ardnamurchan, the most westerly point of the UK mainland. The island is renowned for its varied and extensive wildlife, marine life, geology, landscapes and sea views, together with its numerous bridleways and footpaths for walkers of all ages and levels of expertise including its very own Munro, Ben More which can be seen from the rear of the property.
