A wonderful B Listed country house overlooking the Sound of Mull


Meall Mo Chridhe is situated in the village of Kilchoan towards the western end of the Ardnamurchan peninsula, the most westerly point on the British mainland. The area has some of the most spectacular coastal scenery in Scotland and includes rugged mountains, sea lochs and miles of coastline and sandy beaches.

The Ardnamurchan peninsula offers a wealth of activities for the outdoor enthusiast. The landscape is ideal for hill and coastal walking, with magnificent walks to the summit of Ben Hiant, the highest point on the peninsula. Other places of interest are the golden sands of Sanna Bay, the former Crofting hamlet of Portuairk, the Ardnamurchan Point lighthouse, Mingary Castle dating back to the Spanish Armada and Kilchoan Old Kirk, which reputedly dates from the 12th/13th century.

The area is noted for being very unspoilt and undisturbed, and offers opportunities for stalking and fishing. Ardnamurchan is also home to a diverse range of wildlife, from golden eagles, otters and wildcat to whales and dolphins.

Kilchoan provides a good selection of local amenities including the Kilchoan Hotel, which has a restaurant and bar, a village shop and Post Office, a church and local community centre. There is a daily bus service to and from Fort William, and regular sailings to Tobermory on the Isle of Mull (seven per day in the summer months and three per day in the winter) which has a Co-operative supermarket, excellent local restaurants and a dentist. There are primary schools in Kilchoan and Acharacle villages. Fort William provides more extensive facilities including a hospital, mainline railway station, supermarkets and a range of local shops and services. The bustling town of Oban is within reach and offers further amenities and access to the Islands via the ferry terminal.


Meall Mo Chridhe is a charming stone-built country house which dates back to the late 18th century. The property is a former Church of Scotland manse constructed in 1790. A larger Georgian extension was added in 1829, offering larger windows, high ceilings and detailed cornicing which is typical of that period. The property is Grade B Listed as a building of historical or architectural interest.

The property is set over three floors and is presented in immaculate order with a wealth of period features throughout. A welcoming vestibule and entrance hallway gives access to the principal reception rooms, with stairs giving access to the upper floors.

The drawing room and dining room are both situated to the front of the property and boast fine period features including fireplaces, cornicing and wooden floors. Both rooms are spacious and offer fantastic views over the gardens and the Sound of Mull towards the Isle of Mull.

The kitchen is fully fitted for everyday use, and has previously been used commercially. There is a 4 oven Aga and dual aspect windows overlooking the gardens. A rear hallway is situated off the kitchen and gives access to a spacious utility room, larder and storage cupboard, while also giving access to the gardens. There is also a useful downstairs WC.

The master bedroom is located on the first floor and benefits from an en suite bathroom. Stunning views over the Sound of Mull can be enjoyed from both the bedroom and the freestanding bath in the en suite.
