Haunn – Toechtamhor Cottage

Toechtamhor is a unique Mull self catering cottage, sitting in a fenced grassy garden, overlooking the wildflowers of the Haunn field and enjoying wonderful sea views over to the islands of Tiree, Rum and Skye.

Toechtamhor is one of the four Mull self catering cottages situated at Haunn – a truly peaceful place, two miles from the main road along the farm track. Its large double glazed windows provide opportunity to enjoy extensive views over the fields to the sea, west to Tiree and Coll and north to Rum or watch red deer, eagles and sometimes hen harriers without leaving the cottage!The bright and spacious open plan kitchen-living room forms the heart of the cottage. The well equipped kitchen area with ceramic hob cooker, microwave, fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine also has a dining table with chairs; the restfully decorated sitting area has comfortable sofas set around the welcoming wood burning stove.   There is no TV reception, but there are games, books and a CD player.  The living room is floored with lovely warm coloured reclaimed maple and kilim rugs.

The main bedroom has a 5′ double bed and en-suite bathroom with washbasin, WC and double ended bath.   The bedroom has a locally sourced red pine floor with rugs whilst the bathroom has traditional terracotta floor tiles.  The second bedroom has twin beds (and there is room for a Z-bed for +1 child) with an attractive painted wooden floor and rugs.  It has a terracotta floor tiled en-suite shower-room.

Over the last few years Toechtamhor has undergone an ‘eco-renovation’ – solar panels, new aluminium clad wooden windows, cavity wall insulation, sheeps wool insulation, natural paints and beautiful reclaimed waxed maple flooring. Heating is provided by a combination of thermostatically controlled electric heaters backed up with a cosy wood burning stove.

Access to this glorious spot is along an un-metalled farm track.  The large grassy garden is stock fenced but please be aware, within the spacious garden, there is an unfenced small burn running down from the hill. There are wonderful walks from this Mull self catering cottage, through the fields to the path which leads down to the shore and along the dramatic coastline. Whilst Toechtamhor sits in a slightly elevated positions above the track on its own, the three other Mull self catering Haunn Cottages (East, Middle and West) are only a few hundred metres away – sometimes we have guests who book all four Haunn Cottages to sleep a larger number.
