Luing is a delightful small island within a 40-minute drive of Oban. The regular car ferry takes only 2 minutes to cross the 200m-wide Cuan Sound. The views from the island are some of the best on the west coast of Scotland.

The pretty whitewashed cottages in the little village of Cullipool were built to house the slate miners of the past and to withstand the worst of west coast weather.

No 8 is a Grade II listed cottage. It was built about 160 years ago and has been carefully restored to provide the comforts of modern life whilst retaining the traditional slate floors, large hearths and slate lintels which give the island cottages their distinctive character.
