For obvious reasons the house is particularly popular with those who come to shoot and fish, but will appeal to everyone who would enjoy relaxing in such comfortable Highland surroundings.

Most of the ground floor is given over to a huge open plan living area with various sitting areas and a wood-burning stove. On this level also is a double bedroom with en suite bathroom. Upstairs are two more bathrooms and three further bedrooms - a double (en suite), a twin and one with four full-size bunk beds which children will doubtless adore.

With a drying room and separate utility area, the house is ideal for families who relish the outdoor life and an active holiday, as well as those who prefer to relax and take in the stunning local scenery.

Map & Local

Guests have access to splendid walks on the estate land, keeping a look out for the abundant wildlife in the area. Loch fishing can be arranged locally. There are also several sandy beaches to enjoy, the nearest about 2 miles from the cottage.

Acharacle (2 miles) offers shops and eating places while day trips via the ferries to Skye from Mallaig and Mull from Kilchoan are only some of a host of possibilities in this wonderful corner of Scotland.

No trip to this lovely part of the world would be complete without a trip to the Ardnamurchan peninsula, the westernmost point of mainland Britain. There is a Stevenson lighthouse right at the tip and the sands at Sanna Bay are justly famous. The road along there (turn right at Salen) is a delight in itself and en route you will pass the RSPB reserve at Glenborrodale, where in addition to wood warblers and redstarts you may also see otters and red squirrels.

To the north, the trip via Lochailort and 'The Road to the Isles' is equally rewarding, with the little port of Mallaig lying at the end of it. Prepare to be beguiled by the silver beaches and turquoise waters of Arisaig and Morar, with their wonderful views of Rum and Eigg, or even the links golf course there at Traigh, surely one of the most scenic in all Britain.
