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 two beds – one single bed and one single that converts to a double – and there is also a double sofabed in the sitting room. Please note: the bathroom is accessed via the bedroom. Bedding and bed linen are provided; 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; the bathroom and kitchen have electric fan heaters for occasional use. Hot water is plentiful.
The 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. There are some recent photos posted on Inside Tougal Cottage.
There is a television in the sitting room with all the popular channels. For your mobile phone and ‘Myfi’, EE offers a good signal. Although there is Broadband planned, it has not arrived just yet.
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.
