Laura MacCallum, from Bell Ingram, summed up the house called Creach perfectly when she said: “Creach enjoys the sort of landscape that really puts on a show with each season.

“I don’t think you could ever get bored of simply looking out the window.”

The one-and-a-half- storey cottage, on the market with Bell Ingram for offers over £360,000, enjoys breathtaking views and is surrounded by dramatic scenery. Situated in the picturesque, rural settlement of Killiemore, on Mull, Creach is blessed with unique views over Loch na Keal, the towering peaks of Ben More and the surrounding countryside.

The cottage is every bit as spectacular as the setting.

Originally built in the late 19th Century, it has been extended over the years and now has big rooms and large windows that leave its interiors basking in natural light.

Coupled with its bright interior and classic cream colours, this home has the fresh and spacious feel that many traditional cottages often lack.

“The cottage has been very tastefully designed and includes all the mod cons needed for a comfortable and cosy living space,” said Laura.

“Its private location doesn’t leave it cut off – Creach is just half an hour’s drive from the island’s main ferry terminal at Craignure and its principal town of Tobermory.”

It sits in extensive grounds, stretching to nearly 15 acres, which include rugged landscapes, a well-maintained garden and a burn that flows from the hillside past the cottage to the shore line.

The property sings with charm and character as traditional features, such as its beamed ceiling and an open fireplace, have been well preserved while later, stylish additions, including a spiral staircase with gallery overhead, give a modern, visual look.

Accommodation here comprises three bedrooms, an open-plan kitchen/ sitting room, a dining room, day room, utility room, two bathrooms, a shower room and a large detached garage.

And with Creach there really is no need to worry about choosing artwork to impress guests at dinner – thanks to a newer extension just off the south-facing kitchen, Creach’s dining room is glass-fronted, framing spectacular views of Ben More.

Mull enjoys vibrant countryside, with a range of flora and fauna, putting Creach in an ideal setting for spotting some of Mull’s golden and sea eagles, sea otters, deer and pole cats.
