Island hotel has a private beach and great views

A striking Victorian country house with a private beach and magnificent views over Loch Scridain is now for sale.

Presented for sale by Savills, Tiroran House is a detached country house which sits in an elevated position overlooking Loch Scridain on the Isle of Mull.

Originally a Tackman’s home, and dating back to the late 18th century, this beautiful country house property was substantially upgraded and enlarged to create a shooting lodge for the Tiroran Estate in 1851.

Tiroran House is a much loved family home that the current owners operate as a very successful and high quality, four gold star, multi award-winning hotel with restaurant – Tiroran House is currently the only hotel of its style and quality on the Isle of Mull – the business element of the property may be available by additional and separate negotiation.

The property is set over two floors and offers an excellent balance of reception rooms and bedrooms, ideal for family living. The accommodation extends to approximately 4,800 sq. ft. and is tastefully decorated throughout.

The principle reception rooms are situated off a welcoming reception hallway. The main drawing room boasts wonderful views over the immaculate gardens towards the loch.

Tiroran House has several reception rooms

There is a second very comfortable sitting room, a dining room which is open to the conservatory and snug/seating area.

There is a spacious kitchen with breakfasting island and a larder, pantry and utility room off.

There are two en suite bedrooms on the ground floor, one of which benefits from its own access. There are a further five en suite bedrooms on the upper floor, most of which boast stunning views over the gardens and loch.

As one would expect from a property with such history, Tiroran House has a lovely array of period features throughout including exposed wooden floors, open fireplaces, deep bay windows, and stunning views across the gardens and to the loch beyond.


Tiroran House is presented for sale by Savills

In close proximity to the main house and retaining the name from the previous owners, the sellers have converted this Granny Cottage into two large en suite bedrooms and three storage rooms. With very little effort this pine constructed, chalet style property could easily be returned to one or two self-catering units.

The annexe has five bedrooms and two shower rooms, and this pine constructed, chalet style property is also in very close proximity to the main house. There is a small kitchenette area and again the possibility to create a larger kitchen space if required. This property is currently used as seasonal staff accommodation.

Tiroran House sits in approximately 17.5 acres which is made up of wonderful Victorian gardens with an additional area of mature woodland.

Tiroran House currently operates as a hotel

Situated within a designated area of outstanding natural beauty, the Victorian gardens are a delightful picture of imaginative colour and skilful planting. The gardens and grounds include bridges crossing beautiful streams, spectacular rhododendron bushes, an orchard, beech hedges, old climbing roses and immaculate rolling lawns leading down to the shore front of Loch Scridain.

The driveway leading to the house is a stunning journey in itself, the loch and hills to the left are seen as it winds through the mature lime trees and when rounding the corner, the striking façade of Tiroran House sits proudly ahead. To the front of the property there is a good sized vehicle turning circle. Beyond this, stone steps lead down to an area of levelled lawn which would at one time have played host to both tennis and croquet games.

The Allt Orian burn runs through the gardens and towards the large private beach. There is a mooring included within the sale. The woodland provides split logs for the biomass boiler (servicing all heating and hot water to the main house) which benefits from the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme.

The Isle of Mull is the most studied volcanic island in the world with the famous MacCulloch’s Fossil Tree being accessible from the walk beginning at Tiroran.

The agents will consider offers over £900,000.
