Nestling beneath the mountains and set amid some of Scotland’s most magnificent scenery, this traditional cottage offers the chance to truly ‘get away from it all’ on an unforgettable holiday on Scotland’s glorious west coast.
Some of the house’s charming original features have been retained such as the exposed stonework and wooden beams throughout the downstairs. An oil stove in the sitting room cosies the whole house while the kitchen has everything to hand that you will need for a comfortable stay. Both rooms have wonderful views out over the bay and it is worth keeping the binoculars to hand for some wildlife spotting.
The wood-panelled twin bedroom has been positioned downstairs with an adjoining shower room and upstairs (steep stairs not suitable for those with limited mobility) is the double bedroom that looks out towards the surrounding wooded hills and has a bathroom just across the landing.
Outside the rough grass garden leads directly down to the rocky shore where you can watch the boats bobbing in the water and keep an eye out for otters and other wildlife.
The long gone village of Tarbet was a bustling herring port but is now just a small scattering of houses. The Wee House adjoins what was the Tarbet Inn that is now accommodation for the estate’s employees.
There are no shops at Tarbet so all provisions should be brought across with you. The boat from Mallaig calls at Tarbet on Mondays and Fridays throughout the year and on other days during the summer months.
Although the amazing surroundings may tempt you to simply stay put and relax, there are plenty of activities to try out nearby. Take a stroll along the pretty shore of the loch and perhaps even try catching your dinner fishing off the rocks or foraging for shellfish.
Hill walkers can ‘bag’ some of the munros in the area, while the less energetic can try out some of the picturesque walks on the estate that stretches from Loch Nevis down to Loch Morar to the south.
Sea kayaks can be hired from Arisaig on your way to the cottage and taking to the water is a wonderful way of exploring the beautiful coastline from a truly unique perspective.
