Oban, Isle of Mull & Lorn Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths Accommodating 6 Guests, Stunning Waterfront Location

Once the stone gate house for the Duke of Argyll’s shooting lodge, Ardfenaig Lodge has been lovingly renovated and extended as a self catering cottage accommodating six guests. Great attention to detail and a passion for preserving original features has resulted in a comfortable and luxurious cottage that will make for cherished memories of your stay on the magical Isle of Mull.

Situated along the shore of Loch Caol in 30 acres of forest, lawn, garden and moors, the Lodge is surrounded by natural beauty, abundant wildlife and a great variety of birds. A large deck overlooking Loch Caol invites you to linger, marvelling at the quality of the light and the peace and stillness surrounding you. A picnic table for al fresco dining is at the centre. The deck is off a sunroom with floor to ceiling windows and two comfortable club chairs perfect for reading a good book or just taking in the view. The dining area is located there and opens onto the kitchen that features a Rangemaster Classic range cooker and everything needed to prepare hearty Highland fare after a day of walking, exploring or just relaxing.

The heart of the cottage is the large but cozy sitting room furnished with antiques and chairs and sofa upholstered in Ralph Lauren fabrics. A stone fireplace with multi-fuel stove rises to the vaulted and beamed ceiling. The sitting room also has a large flat screen television with SKY TV and a DVD player. On the ground floor are two en suite bedrooms, one with a king sized bed and the other with twin beds while upstairs is another bedroom with two single built-in beds (one 2’6” wide and the other 3’) and an en suite shower room. Hair dryers are provided in all bedrooms. A laundry room with washer, dryer, airer, small Belfast sink and loo is also on the ground floor, and Wi-Fi broadband is available throughout the Lodge.

Our hope is that you immerse yourself in a simple, unhurried way of life so different from the cities where most of us live and experience the Highland way of life and rich Scottish heritage here on the Isle of Mull.

About Mrs. Anne Tolleson

In 1999 we celebrated out 30th wedding anniversary with a trip to the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. We chose Ardfenaig Country House Hotel for our accommodation on Mull and fell in love with it the minute we stepped through the door. It had been on the market for a while and since Patrick had recently retired and I had closed my travel business we no longer had obligations in Atlanta and bought the property as our home in Scotland. It came with 15 acres and a lovely self catering property, the Coach House. Six years ago Ardfenaig Lodge and 15 acres of land became available, and I purchased it as a second self catering cottage. The cottage was in very poor condition, but with a lot of work and planning it is now a luxury self catering cottage. We are still in love with Mull and have never once regretted our decision to make it our Scottish home. The community is full of friendly and interesting people, and we are grateful to be a part of it. We spend 6-7 months at Ardfenaig and the rest of the year in Atlanta, but it is always a joy to return to Mull. With 2 self catering cottages we have been able to meet guests from all over the UK and Europe who enrich our lives and become our valued friends.

Mrs. Anne Tolleson purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Mrs. Anne Tolleson chose Oban, Isle of Mull & Lorn

The Isle of Mull is rich in history and Ardfenaig is no exception. Owned by the Dukes of Argyll, Ardfenaig House was once the home of their estate factors as evidenced by rent records we have from 1662. In 1872 the last factor died and the Duke converted the house into his shooting lodge. We believe that the Lodge was once the gatehouse to the estate, and so it seemed right that it should once again be part of the adjoining property. Renovation and extension was a labour of love although often tiring and frustrating. In renovating Ardfenaig Lodge I wanted it to be exactly what I would want as a guest...a home with a welcoming Highland feel, comfortable and as beautiful inside as the natural beauty outside. This was my goal in selecting decor, furnishings and fittings. Using a Glasgow architect and 2 interior designers, one in the UK and 1 in the US, we all had a big job ahead of us. I chose Ralph Lauren fabrics and Farrow & Ball paints along with family furniture and antiques. I am thrilled with the result and hope as our guests you will feel that you have truly come to a special place.

What makes this cottage unique

Living on the Isle of Mull still awakens my sense of wonder almost daily. Not only the natural beauty but the wildlife and birds remind me that I am privileged to live here. The pace of life is slow and relaxed, so different from life in a city. Being mainly a farming community, time is marked not only by the seasons but by events such as lambing, shearing, cutting silage, planting and harvesting. Some of the old ways remain... the Highland Games, the agricultural shows and my favourite, ceilidhs with live music and Scottish country dancing. This is what we want to share with our guests so that you will carry with you cherished memories of your stay at Ardfenaig Lodge.

Awesome Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5
The Lodge is beyond expectations. It was clean, well furnished, cozy, warm, and better than any picture can portray. The caretaker met us on arrival and checked in on us during the week. The view from the Lodge cannot be described and must be seen. Our visit was during the off-season but that did not detract from the enjoyment we experienced. We recommend this site for anyone looking for a fantastic getaway.

Ardfenaig Lodge is situated in an area of such stunning natural beauty that you might be tempted to just relax, take in the views and explore our 30 acres of woodland, moors, fields, garden and shoreline. But there is so much to explore and experience on this unspoiled island that you will probably want to venture beyond the Lodge.
