Outside:

Outside there is approximatley 2 acres of mountain land from the top of which has fantastic sea views out and across the Currane pennisula opposite the Island and is great for an early morning walk! There is also ample parking for cars etc at the back of the property. There is a  picnic table where you might like to have breakfast  on sunny days looking out to sea. There is also a path leading up to the land at the back of the house.

The garden is typical wild mountain land (peat bog and quartzite) and has many wild flowers, trees (including Willow), assorted mountain heathers, ferns, fuschias, wild grasses & nettles and wild berries as well as a small wooded area directly behind the house (see our photo section). At certain times of the year the mountain sheep can also be seen in the garden as well as the Rabbits, Hares, Foxes, Badgers and perhaps even a local lost sheep dog!

Directly to the side of the property is also the mountain river which leads down to the sea and can be heard from the property especiually following heavy rainfall. There is also a small footbridge running over the river which is a nice feature to wonder over to and view the river from.

For keen bird watchers there is an abundance of bird species in the immediate area of the cottage from Robins to Ravens, Gold Finches, Blue Tits, Black Birds, Sparrow Hawkes, Falcons, Swallows and perthaps even the resident Cuckoo may make an appearance or two! The abundance of bird species makes this area quite interesting.
