Airidh Mhaoraich (shelter of the limpets) is situated on the east side of Arinagour Bay in a delightful, rural and semi remote location on the popular and picturesque Inner Hebridean Island of Coll. The island, which is approximately 13 miles long and 4 miles wide, has been enjoying a resurgence in recent years with a growing population of about 225 and significant investment in a new community centre and bunk house.
The generously proportioned, 3 bedroom property sits in an elevated position in Arinagour Bay opposite the Island's principle village. Access is by small boat or on foot via a causeway. Alternatively, at low tide, the bay can be crossed with a quad bike. The semi remoteness of the property provides the ideal setting for a private hideaway, coupled with the convenience of Arinagour only a short distance across the bay. The detached property, which dates back more than 100 years, has been completely renovated in 2009 by the current owners to provide spacious, modern accommodation whilst retaining the character and charm of the original house. The refurbishment work included new double glazed windows, new kitchen, bathroom and repairs to the roof. More recently, the property has benefited from the installation of panel heaters. The property is finished to a high standard and has solid wooden flooring throughout. The house is surrounded by a good sized garden with scope for further enhancement beyond which is direct access to the sea.
