Welcome to Tighachuain Mhor
Margaret and Tim welcome you to their cosy family home, which was architecturally designed and built in 2012. We have two lovely, spacious rooms that we have decided to let.
We have lived here in Port Charlotte for over fifty years (in fact Margaret was born and grew up in the village). The house was built on ground that was part of our original family garden – the breath-taking views across Lochindaal were just too beautiful to lose! The home is situated on the edge of the village in a very peaceful and tranquil location. It has a well-kept garden with colourful flowers, perfume-scented roses and seasonal plants and vegetables. Guests are welcome to relax in it as they wish.
Port Charlotte is without a doubt one of the most picturesque villages on Islay, and that’s why people come back year after year. It has two hotels with bar and restaurant, which serve local produce on their menu and offer live Scottish music several times a week. There are several other eating options close by, plus a small shop with post office and fuel pumps.
Also located in the village is the Islay Museum with its amazing array of items showing what Islay life was like in years gone by. There is also an interesting display about World War 1 ship wrecks located on the Islay coast – many items donated by Tim who was once a keen diver.
Islay is the perfect location for Tim to enjoy his passions – gardening, history and collecting rare collectable Islay whisky.
Margaret loves the outdoors, and enjoys nothing more than walking the many stunning, sandy beaches Islay has to offer. She is also a fabulous cook – seafood is her specialty!
We are on the main bus route with a bus stop close-by with links to the rest of the Island.
