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 late April 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. Bedding and bed linen are usually provided but in these keep-safe-from-covid days we request, temporarily, that you bring your own; please bring your own beach and bath towels.
For heating, there is a fireplace for a real fire in the living room and fuel for the week is provided; there is an electric wall heater in the living room and another in the bedroom. There is now a heated towel rail in the bathroom which is keeping the bathroom cosy. 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 updated in 2019.
The living room has been improved over the winter of 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.
The cottage is located at the tip of the arrow on the OS map above.
Update on 31 August: Thank you for your interest, the cottage is now fully booked for the 2020 season.
