Matenderere is in Kilchoan, the largest settlement of West Ardnamurchan. This view looks along the coast of the Ardnamurchan peninsula towards Ardnamurchan Point, the most westerly point of the British mainland. To the left is the Sound of Mull. The house is marked with an arrow.

The site on which Matenderere stands is in the crofting township of Ormsaigbeg. In this picture, Matenderere is marked with the arrow. The house is built on decrofted land, with the township's common grazings to the left and Kilchoan Bay, which opens out to the Sound of Mull, to the right. The main village of Kilchoan is in the middle distance.

The house was completed in 2005 on a plot with commanding views down the Sound of Mull. It was designed by our architect to take full advantage of both site and views. The concept was to create a house which blended with the local croft architecture yet maximised the scenic and southeast-facing opportunities of the site. Thus all living rooms, including bedrooms, face the front; further, all these rooms have at least one window in a minimum of two walls, so they enjoy as much natural light as possible.
