The self catering accommodation is the converted byre of our 200 year old croft house and a sense of this history still settles over the cottage and its surroundings. The accommodation has recently been refurbished to a high standard, and the views from all the windows are delightful. Although part of our own house, the accommodation at Moorcroft is self contained with parking almost to the door.

Moorcroft is set in almost four acres of grounds with picnic tables, seats and a summerhouse. To the rear is a large garden, a meadow with an ancient cairn and a shady picnic area to sit and watch the wildlife, or the sun setting over Mull.

A Post Office and shop, restaurants and pubs are available at Connel (2.5 miles); and Benderloch (3miles) has a garage, hardware/toy/camping/outdoor clothing shop, a Post Office and grocers, a café with second-hand bookshop and a sandy beach to explore.

The Bonawe Road is ideal for easy walking or cycling, or if you prefer something more strenuous, a track from Benderloch leads up to the summit of Beinn Lora which, on a clear day, will reward you with a breathtaking view.

Moorcroft is a perfect base for exploring this fascinating area.
