One of Tigh Bhaan’s best features is its garden and view. The garden extends from the stone wall both sides of the track down to the shore (MHWS). Stones have been placed to show the boundary with our neighbours to the right. Boats, kayaks can be launched from the garden and stored on the front lawn when not is use, if you require a mooring please get in touch it would be at your own risk with our permission only (insurance purposes). We have recently built a garden room/day room/hide for you to enjoy on stormy, rainy or even midgy days where you can spend time enjoying the view and watching the wildlife. We have outdoor garden furniture seating and tables placed at the best view points and a gas BBQ for your use and enjoyment.
