Welcome to the Tougal Cottage website

The cottage will be closed during the 2023 season for building works and this website will ‘close’ in the New Year 2023.

Email contact tougal@icloud.com will still be available going forward. 


This one bedroom cottage, available for weekly holiday rental, is located on the white sands of the Morar estuary. At high tide it is less than 100 metres from the sea and swimming is safe and refreshing! At low tide there is a beautiful walk around the shoreline to Camusdarach. The Road to the Isles website has information about the area.


Tougal Cottage is available for weekly holiday rental from after Easter through the summer season. The cottage is located approximately 2 miles from Morar village and 4 miles from the fishing port of Mallaig.
The cottage has one bedroom, with a bed that will be made up on arrival as a king size double bed but you can easily convert it into two singles for children as there is also a double sofabed in the sitting room. Please note: the bathroom is accessed via the bedroom. Also, access to the cottage from the parking area at the end of the unmade-up ‘private road’ (off the B8008) is via 80 metres of pedestrian-only access that includes a narrow bumpy path; unfortunately it is not a wheelchair accessible cottage.
For heating, there is a fireplace for a real fire in the living room and wood for the week is provided; there is an electric wall heater in the living room and another in the bedroom. The heated towel rail in the bathroom keeps the bathroom cosy and hot water is plentiful.
Tougal Cottage kitchen was rebuilt and refurbished over the winter of 2019 and is now a modern, streamlined kitchen with induction hob, multifunction oven, microwave, fridge-freezer and washer-drier and fan heater.  The bathroom and bedroom were also refreshed in 2019.
The living room was updated in 2020: BT broadband installed, new windows, some new furniture, a new television screen and all freshly decorated.
Dogs are welcome by arrangement. Please bring your dog’s bed/blanket and clean- up equipment.

There is some useful travel information in the Tougal Cottage Information for visitors which includes detailed directions as the postcode, PH40 4PD, covers quite a wide area and satnav is not reliable! ‘Tougal’ is sometimes spelt ‘Toigal’ and is ‘An Taobh Geal’ in Gaelic.

Booking update 16 November 2022.

Because of building works planned for next year (in particular: replacing the bathroom’s flat roof), I anticipate that the cottage will not be available for rent during the 2023 season. 

Other local holiday lets are listed on The Road to the Isles accommodation page and their Facebook page has plenty of holiday information and lots of lovely photos of the area.
