The detail

Nestled on a remote and visually stunning headland by the historic Sound of Mull, Pilothouse P5 is a truly unique two storey lighthouse-style self-catering cottage, designed to maximise the views in every direction, and resembling the conning tower of a submarine. Finished in aluminium, and removed from traffic, industry and other sources of noise and light pollution, Pilothouse P5 is the perfect romantic retreat for anybody looking to spend time rambling, wild-swimming and generally unwinding on Scotland’s most rugged and dramatic coast.

Internally, judicious design choices have been made to maximise the light, views, and sense of space. The elliptical space has been carefully optimised, and the amenities and finishes all suggests utility, industry, and practicality. Laid out as two large open plan spaces, the ground floor houses the bedroom, while the kitchen-cum-dining room is on the upper storey. The living room has comfortable sofas and soft furniture, as well as windows on all sides, and the private bedroom comes with a queen-sized bed. In addition, a wraparound balcony provides 360 degree outlooks in every direction, facing the hills and greenery of the inland region, and the raging sea as you look out over the coast.

Whatever weather comes rolling in over the bay, you’re in for a real treat. An engineered wood-burning stove will keep you cosy and warm, while the simple kitchen has everything you need to prepare romantic meals for two making use of local ingredients. In addition to the main spaces are a full bathroom, an individual WC, and a carefully carved out study or reading space with a small desk.

From the timber floorboards and ultramarine ceilings to the unique corrugated aluminium outside cladding, everything about the Pilothouse is as visually stunning as it is unusual. With large windows and high ceilings, this is a house which manages to feel airy and spacious on a small footprint.

With books, good food, wine and your partner, there really is very little reason to leave the pleasing comfort of the house, and with excellent broadband internet, you can work or watch films to your heart’s content. That said, the iconic Sound of Mull is within easy reach for those who enjoy a romantic stroll along the shoreline. Café Fish is in Tobermory on the Isle of Mull which is easily accessible by the ferry which runs throughout the day, while The Whitehouse Lochaline also nearby! Pubs with great cheer, local ales and hearty food can be reached in a short time via motor vehicle, and there is a great range of restaurants specialising in seafood and game. The Island of Mull itself is just 17km away, and is well worth the ferry trip.
