Shian Cottage

Shian Cottage is a dog friendly cottage on a farm near Calgary beach. A great cottage for a couple or a small family!

Shian shares an enclosed grassy garden and washing line with its neighbour Duill. These Isle of Mull cottages were originally farm workers cottages, so their rooms are smaller than modern-day cottages, but they have been carefully furnished and decorated to create comfortable and characterful accommodation.Shian was renovated during the winter of 2013/14. As well as improving the windows and adding wall insulation to external walls, a small (unheated) sunroom was added, which is a great place for enjoying the views and midsummer sunsets! Shian is a perfect cottage for a couple or a family with child. There is a practical kitchen with fridge/freezer, ceramic hob cooker, dishwasher and washing machine. The welcoming living-room forms the heart of the cottage with its cosy wood burning stove, comfortable sofas, small library of books and games, radio/CD and the dining table sits in front of the window which has the best view of the sea! It also has a flat screen TV with built in DVD player.

All rooms lead off a small central hall with reclaimed beech Junckers flooring. The double bedroom has a king size bed and a wonderful sea view. There is a narrow second bedroom with a adult sized single bed. Both bedrooms have reclaimed beech flooring and bedside sheepskin rugs produced on the Isle of Skye. The bathroom, with bath, washbasin and lavatory, has a ceramic tiled floor.

The sunroom (or ‘sitooterie’ as we call it) was built using reclaimed windows. It is deliberately unheated, and has an external thermal door between it and the living room so that there is no heat loss from the cottage to the sunroom. It has a Fired Earth tiled floor and comfortable ‘chaise longues’ (daybeds) to recline on whilst admiring the views and enjoying ‘outdoor space indoors’.
