The wing is completely self-contained with its own entrance and is closed off from the main lodge for privacy. Its cosy sitting room is a light and bright space to relax in and the kitchen is neat and well-equipped with dining for four and a door out to the garden where there is a pretty seating area (with BBQ) from which to admire the beautiful views of the Isle of Skye. There is also a handy WC on this level.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms, a double and two single rooms that share a modern shower room with spacious walk-in shower.
There are 18 acres of garden to explore and guests also have use of the pool table in the games room and the useful drying room, both of which are housed in outbuildings within the grounds.
Just 5 minutes’ drive away on the shores of beautiful Loch Carron is the village of Plockton (2.5 miles) that is known as the ‘jewel of the Highlands’ and has several shops, a pub and a village shop.
It is an ideal place to enjoy an evening meal as it has several excellent restaurants, as well as the option of some local fish and chips that can be enjoyed whilst admiring the sea from the pretty palm tree-lined harbour.
Lots of boats and yachts anchor up in the bay and every July the village holds its famous Plockton Regatta with hundreds of colourful boats drawing in visitors from all around.
If you fancy exploring the surprisingly clear turquoise waters for yourself you can head out on a sea kayaking expedition (lessons available) where you can see some of the local wildlife up close. There are also boat trips that run out for seal spotting and the organisers are so certain know the area so well and are so sure you will see them that if you don’t you actually get your trip for free! There is some wonderful scenery to be taken in from the boat, with particularly good views of Duncraig Castle.
Following the road up around Loch Carron you come to the delightful Attadale Gardens (12 miles) that are a great place to spend an afternoon (open April – October). There are lots of interesting and colourful plants and flowers to admire with sculptures dotted about that you can keep an eye out for as you wander around.
Heading south, from Kyle of Lochalsh (4 miles) there is easy access over the bridge to the Isle of Skye where you will be spoilt for choice for places to visit with long sandy beaches to explore, impressive mountains to climb (including some munros and corbetts) and plenty of gorgeous countryside to admire along the way.
