This cottage is a local gem, fantastic! It is really a labour of love and the details of rustic and naturalistic decorating and gardening plus inside upkeep really prove positive. All the modern amenities too. For children, there is an attic bedroom and a lighthouse tower to get the full panoramic view. It is centrally located just a few minutes walk into Tobermory's Big Tub harbour. The sunsets glinting on the front lawn across from the docks and diving spots are breath-takingly amazing. Go ahead, treat yourselves!
