Luxury grass roofed eco cabin on the Ross of Mull with sea and mountain views.

Fairwinds cabin is a larch and grass-roofed eco conscious cabin on the Ross of Mull, in the southwest of the island. Built and owned by a trio of locals, building the cabin was a true labour love.

The interiors are a delicate balance of hand-crafted finds and good-looking but practical pieces: friends and locals bound the log basket, carved the chopping boards and wove the blankets from local Iona wool, whilst the old Belfast sinks, brass taps and oak parquet floor were reclaimed from an old church. The cosy boxbed gives a nod to past architectural traditions of the West Highlands, whilst natural linen and locally woven tweed give it a modern, luxurious twist. We've ditched the mod cons, replacing broadband with board games and a carefully curated collection of vinyl and inspiring books.

Sea views extend over to the Treshnish Isles, Coll and Tiree and mountain views of Ben More, Mull's only Munro, can be enjoyed from the comfort of sofa. Spot sea eagles, seals, dolphins, whales and basking sharks from the wildflower garden, and take advantage of a clear night toasting marshmallows over the outdoor fire.

The cabin is five minutes drive or a leisurely cycle away from some of the best beaches that the island has to offer, where you're likely to have the whole place to yourself, bar the odd wooly companion.

One kingsize boxbed

The cabin has a studio set up with all areas within one room. The living room is situated around a log burning stove at the front of the cabin, directly looking out at the view through patio doors. To the West side of the building there is a well-equipped kitchen and on the East wall, a dining table, record player and large collection of records and books. Tucked away at the back of the cabin is a kingsize boxbed with under bed storage and a separate bathroom with walk in shower.

The cabin exterior is of a weathered silver larch with grass roof and log-top herb garden. In the spring, the rough grass becomes a beautiful colourful wildflower roof and the garden mirrors this, with only a small circle cut around the fire bowl.

Unfortunately, the cabin is not easily wheelchair accessible due to it's size and small bathroom. Access is along a gravel path and up one step, with sliding entrance door with raised threshold.
