Middle House Back

Self Catering Caolas

Middle House is recently built to a stunning modern design based on a traditional Hebridean longhouse.

It sits on the machair just a few yards from the beautiful, sheltered beaches of Caolas at the east end of the island. The picture windows and the decks have views over the waters of the Gunna Sound towards Coll and Mull, with Rhum and Canna visible to the North. For wildlife lovers there is an ever changing scene including wild flowers, birds, seals, basking sharks, hares and otters.

The middle of three houses in this quiet location, there is a traditional blackhouse style cottage on one side and a modern timber-clad house on the other. Access is via a track across the machair. The ferry and the shops of Scarinish are ten minutes away by car.
