Chattan is a modern cottage built in 2000 and designed to reflect the island’s slate-quarrying heritage. The accommodation includes a spacious double and twin bedrooms upstairs with a further double bedroom on the ground floor. The generously-sized bathroom has a heated Easdale slate floor, and a bath with shower.
The kitchen is well equipped with utensils, cutlery and crockery and has a gas hob and electric oven. There’s a dishwasher, washing machine, fridge-freezer, microwave and Nutribullet blender. The large lounge has a digital television, with BT Sports and Kids entertainment channels. There is a selection of games and books for guests’ enjoyment.
Chattan has a south-facing patio with garden furniture to the rear of the property, which is accessed via French doors from the kitchen. The property has a wood-burning stove with fuel provided in the lounge which also has storage radiators. There are wall-mounted Dimplex heaters in the bedrooms. All bed linen and towels are included. There is good wi-fi connectivity.
We permit pets to stay in Chattan with the restriction being no more than two small dogs (or the equivalent) which must be housed downstairs.
“Chattan is a beautiful cottage, where so many happy holiday memories can be made. It’s situated only 75 metres from the slipway where the passenger ferry berths and when you stand at the front door all you can see are hills, sea and islands.
We love sitting on the patio at the back of Chattan, having our breakfast in the morning sun. By afternoon, we’re round the front of the cottage, on a bench or perched on the wall, looking over to Mull or watching the ferry coming and going with locals and visitors.
There’s so much to do on such a small island: we love exploring the rocky shoreline, picking up pieces of slate and shells and finding fool’s gold embedded in the rock. The panoramic view from the top of the hill reveals a lush landscape, with ever-changing light and shade on far-off islands. From above, the island reveals its history of slate mining which stopped in the late 19th century. In summer, people meet and swim in one of the quarries at the back of the island: the cool, salty water invigorating and refreshing.
We also love doing day trips from the island, and there is so much to do and see in this part of Argyll, whatever the weather and time of year. Staying at Chattan makes us feel like we are a million miles away from our cares and worries. The island’s relaxed charm helps us unwind and we’re always sorry when it’s time to go home.”
