It is a charming and traditional highland home, a real but 'n' ben, whitewashed, detached, standing in its own neat and enclosed grass garden, from where you can enjoy the stunning views, with just the tiny road between it and the shoreline.

Inside, it is 'bijou' in the best sense of the word, a lovely little retreat which would make a great honeymoon cottage. The living area is open plan, where a wood burning stove adds to the romantic ambience. There is a delightful double bedroom and a shower room with a walk in shower.

Map & Local

Port Appin is within walking distance and in addition to a couple of shops has two eating places, Airds Hotel and The Pierhouse, of international repute. From the slipway there, you can take the foot ferry (with your bikes if you wish) across to Lismore and cycle the length of this unique island, stopping for refreshment at the cafe and heritage centre as you go.

Back on the mainland, you can enjoy trips to Oban (all facilities), perhaps for some additional island hopping, or to Fort William, where you can take cruises on the loch, or climb Ben Nevis and mountain bike or ski at Aonach Mor.

Beyond there, you can make for the Great Glen and Loch Ness, or take the Road to the Isles out to the silver sands of Arisaig and Morar. Closer to home, there is riding just up the road at Lettershuna and a golf course at Ballachulish. Ballachulish is also the entrance to Glencoe, for some of the best climbing, walking in the country, plus, of course, skiing in winter.
