The House

Tostarie is a converted barn that overlooks Loch Tuath on the west coast of Mull. It sleeps six people in four rooms (one double bedroom, two singles and a room with a bunk bed), has a new bathroom and kitchen, a living room and dining room/conservatory.

Renovated from a ruin in 1980, the house has been  refurbished to high standards and provides comfortable, warm accommodation reflecting the expectations of modern living while preserving aspects of its original heritage.

The house affords stunning views across Loch Tuath towards Ben Moore and has commanding views of the sea, nearby islands and mountains, it is an ideal base from which to explore Mull, to relax on the Island’s beaches, or spend time in charming and bustling Tobermory (the Island’s capital and inspiration for the children’s TV show Balamory).

The property will be appreciated by people who enjoy nature and the natural environment, or who would just enjoy relaxing and chilling out with a book. With magnificent views to in all directions, the property really is an atmospheric treat.
