About Lubna Nasir

We fell in love with North Cottage several years ago and we love spending time there with our two daughters. It really is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the panoramic views.

Lubna Nasir purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Lubna Nasir chose World

The Mull of Kintyre is our favourite part of Scotland. It has so much to offer and we particularly like it for the remoteness and wonderful wildlife. For me and my family, we just love to escape from the city and be surronded by nature.

Fantastic property in a wonderful situation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at North Cottage. The situation and views are stunning and the cottage had everything we could possibly need. It felt very welcoming and we were extremely comfortable. It was definitely one of the nicest places all round that we have ever stayed. We found plenty of walks and wildlife in the area and loved watching the swallows flying around the cottage and gannets diving for fish. It was so very peaceful.

We just wished we had booked for longer!

Peace, tranquility, stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

Throughly enjoyed our visit to North Cottage, can't add to what has been already reviewed, other than in our opinion an extremely comfortable cottage with everything there we could possible need to feel right at home. A wonderful part of the world to explore, and through our own experiences we found the communities who live here, so friendly and welcoming. The crews who work the many small ferries in the area especially friendly and always helpful.

This is a gorgeous cottage in a wonderful location we enjoyed every moment of our stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great cottage - smartly designed with a warm and homely feel. It's has fantastic views to Arran which change every moment, when we visited in April our next door neighbours were lambs! It's perfext spot to enjoy the island and also hop to other islands we visited Gigha and Arran during our stay.

The butcher and fishmonger in Tarbet are fab as is The Larder. We also enjoyed fish and chips from Tarbert chippy and a great coffee at studio coffee shop on the road to the tarbert ferry terminal.

Also visited smokehouse at skipness and walked along to skipness point which was a bracing and beautiful walk.

Whole heartedly recommend this cottage and inner Hebridean isles for perfect peaceful and inspiring get away !

Away From It All

  • 4 of 5

This proved to be an ideal location for our short break, situated in a quiet and beautiful location and North Cottage was very comfortably furnished and well equipped. We enjoyed fabulous weather and so we travelled down and around the peninsula exploring and enjoying the stunning views. Good food is available in Tarbert and in Skipness but it was simply lovely to return to North Cottage each evening and enjoy the peace and quiet and drink-in the views. The location means that a car is a must-have but there is plenty close by, or not so far in a car, to keep most types of visitors very very happy . Will be back.
