The cabin is about 20 miles south west of Fort William near the village of Strontian (hotels, few shops, bistro). It is en route to the Ardnamurchan peninsula which is the most westerly part of Scotland – a true escapist's paradise.
Double glazed, completely refurbished and furnished by its new owners to a very high standard, it now offers delightful and informal accommodation. The open plan living area is airy and bright with stylish L-shaped seating that makes the most of the amazing loch views. There are two sets of French doors that lead out onto a lovely decked area (with furniture) and with both sets of doors open you can really ‘bring the outdoors in’.
There is a neat, well-equipped kitchen area with an island for extra preparation space and a handy dining area alongside.
There are three bedrooms in total, a double, a twin and a single (with an additional pull-out bed), that are all warm, inviting and pleasantly presented. A modern bathroom with bath and shower over completes the indoor accommodation.
The cabin sits in its own patch of garden (with furniture) from where you can further enjoy the stunning views of the sea loch and the rugged mountain scenery beyond.
This is a superb place to relax and do as little or as much as you want. Walkers will doubtless head for the hills - Ben Resipol is the nearest peak - while others may prefer gentler strolls through the woods on the shores of the loch.
Fishing is available locally, there are boat trips from Acharacle, sandy beaches and secluded coves at Sanna at the end of the peninisula, or visit the Stevenson lighthouse at Arnamurchan Point.
If you turn right at Salen you can carry on up to Mallaig past the silver sands of Morar and the incomparable views of Rum and Eigg from Arisaig. There is an excellent golf course there at Traigh (the name means Shore which says it all). From Mallaig, you can catch the ferry over to Skye - the crossing only takes half an hour. Just over half an hour's drive from Strontian you can be in Lochaline, where yet another half hour will whisk you across on the little ferry to Fishnish on Mull.
Or if you want a bit of urban bustle, you can soon be in Fort William (24 miles via the Corran Ferry), shopping, catching the West Highland Line steam train to Mallaig, swimming at the leisure centre, climbing Ben Nevis or, in winter, skiing at Aonach Mhor.
