Staying at Marys House was a truly unique experience that we will remember for many years. I never realised that such remote locations existed in our crowded country anymore and with the sea and beautiful sandy beach within a stone throw from the house, you simply could not envisage a more tranquil picture postcard spot. Marys House is well furnished, clean and has everything you need for your visit and is ideally situated for a relaxing/walking holiday while the tiny village of Kilchoan, which is about 4 miles away has a good pub and well stocked shop. The village is so remote it really is like stepping back in to the 1950,s and if you need petrol, someone from the village shop even comes along to operate the pump for you. The ferry to the island of Mull also leaves from Kilchoan, were you can visit the now famous town of Tobermory, which is better known as Balamory in the childrens TV series and believe me it really is worth a visit. The nearby lighthouse is also a good attraction as is the fabulous beach at Sanna Bay, a few miles away. The only downside is the road that takes you to Kilchoan. For 20 miles it is a single track road with passing points scattered along the way to allow oncoming traffic to pass and it is an arduous drive. The road from Kilchoan to Marys House is also little more than a track and seems to go on forever, but dont let this put you off. It guarantees the remoteness of the place and many of the villagers prefer it to stay like that, although for those who have to commute to work, it must be a nightmare.
