Bungalow | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
The Old Powerhouse self-catering accommodation situated two miles from Tobermory on the Isle of Mull with far reaching views of the isle of Coll and the outer hebrides on a clear night and occasional views of the Aurora (northern lights} . The holiday house is in a superbly located position set on the Glengorm Estate amidst beautiful West Highland scenery. You are assured of completely stunning scenery and can explore your Highland retreat at leisure.
The Old Powerhouse was built in World War II as a generator station (powerhouse) to provide electricity to the masts at the top of Cnoc Fuar on the Glengorm Estate, a vital part to naval communications in the Western Isles. In 1983 the building was purchased from the estate and fully renovated turning it into a luxury four bed roomed bungalow. In 2008 we bought the bungalow and turned it into a luxury two bed roomed self catering accommodation with adjoining bungalow in which we live.
The Accommodation is equipped to 3* standards, sleeps 4 people and consists of a large double bedroom, twin bedded room, kitchen including cooker, microwave, washing machine, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and seating for four people. The water is natural spring water perfect for drinking and bathing. There is a sitting room with sky television and wireless internet. Bathroom including bath with shower over. Electricity, Bed linen & towels are included in the price of the accommodation, cot and high chair available on request.
in the autumn and winter months there is great views of the deer rutting in the valley below and grazing in the winter months whilst the han harriers and short eared owls fly the heather laid areas looking for prey.
