Fall asleep to the sound of waves lapping at the shore. Awake to the sound of eider ducks and oystercatchers. Admire otters and seals, enjoy the comings and goings of ferries and fishing boats and watch the lighthouse glowing in the setting sun. Barnacle Cottage is a beautiful new holiday cottage and home, set in a stunning location next to Carraig Fhada lighthouse, overlooking Kilnaughton Bay.
The main, two storey part of the house is built in the style of a traditional Islay whitehouse, with sash windows, but the sitting room extension has a fully glazed frontage which affords breathtaking, panoramic views, taking in Kilnaughton beach to the north, round to Port Ellen bay and the Isle of Texa, out past the lighthouse and over to Kintyre and Arran to the south.
The cottage is luxuriously equipped with brand new furniture and furnishings. Barnacle Cottage sleeps six in three bedrooms. On the ground floor there is a single bedroom with a kingsize bed and en-suite bathroom. On the first floor there are two bedrooms, one with a double bed, the other with two single beds, and a shower room.
The spacious kitchen has a built-in double electric oven, hob and extractor, dishwasher and fridge freezer. The large utility and boot room has a washing machine and tumble dryer. In the living room there is a widescreen TV, DVD and CD player.
The cottage is equipped for birdwatchers, with a small library of bird books, as well as wild flower books, for when you go on the short walk over the headland to The Singing Sands.
