The cabin's position gives it a natural vantage point from which guests can enjoy the constantly changing light and shade on the loch beneath it and the mountains beyond. It is reached from the ‘main’ road by a short, private, mostly tarmac track and there is plenty of parking right at the door.
South facing, centrally heated and double-glazed (thus snug and cosy all year round), the cabin has a well-equipped kitchen and a spacious living area with glorious views over the loch. The pine lined interior is well furnished, with a small electric stove in the living area providing a focal point and additional warmth if required.
There are three bedrooms (a double, a twin and a single), sleeping a total of five people and the double and twin rooms are surprisingly large for this type of house.
Best of all, the views can be enjoyed not just from the windows, but also from the covered veranda to the front (with furniture) and the picnic table which occupies an idyllic situation in the garden area. It is one of several cabins scattered around the hillside in its own natural surroundings and is superbly positioned, approximately 100 yards from the loch shore.
The charming village of Strontian has shops, a bistro and a hotel, all of which are within an easy stroll of the cabin. You are also excellently placed for exploring westwards along the loch to Ardnamurchan Point, the most westerly point of mainland Britain.
You can visit the silver sands of Arisaig (38 miles) and Morar (links golf course) and the end of the Road to the Isles at Mallaig (48 miles) where you can take the 25 minute ferry crossing across to Skye for the day.
Another island-hopping possibility is to trundle down to Lochaline (19 miles) where the little ferry will take you across to Mull, from where Iona and Staffa can be visited. For a bit of urban bustle, you are only 20 minutes drive from the Corran Ferry (no booking necessary) and a further short drive will have you in Fort William (all facilities, leisure centre and boat trips).
The area abounds in wildlife - deer, pine marten, otters, buzzards, eagles to name but a few. The hills behind the cabin offer wonderful walking opportunities and fishing can be arranged.
