Inside, with a light and airy feeling throughout and an open plan layout that is cosied by underfloor heating, the house offers comfy accommodation and plenty of room to spread out into.
Glass doors out to the patio area and windows to three sides in the open plan living area allow the sunlight to flood in and a warm ambience is created at its heart by the fire crackling away in the wood-burning stove. A large island in the kitchen provides handy extra space and the dining area is right alongside making sure that the nominated cook doesn’t miss out on the conversation and fun.
Downstairs there are two attractive double bedrooms that both benefit from modern en suite shower rooms with walk-in showers that are hidden away behind space-saving sliding doors. Heading up to the mezzanine level, is a games/TV room that is partly open to a double bedroom that makes use of the bathroom downstairs.
The shared, fenced garden is laid mainly to grass and to the rear is a large parking area and an outbuilding that allows for bikes and other sporting equipment to be stored away safely.
Larger parties of guests may wish to also book Darach’s sister property, Camus, that shares its garden and parking area.
A 10-minute stroll leads to the amazing Camusdarach sandy beach that is sure to be right at the top of the holiday agenda whatever the weather with its white sands and sparkling waters. Mallaig (5 miles) is a popular fishing port so it is the ideal place to try some amazingly fresh seafood.
Wildlife spotting boat trips run out from Mallaig harbour with the hope of seeing birds, seals, dolphins and even whales and basking sharks. It stops off at the Green Island on the Knoydart peninsula which is known as a haven for wildlife. There are also ferries available for those wishing to head over to the Isle of Skye for a day trip spent exploring the picturesque island.
Horse riding along the beach can be tried with the Silversands Trekking Centre (0.5 miles) and there is a very picturesque, 9 hole golf course right by the coast at Traigh (1.5 miles). A must visit nearby is Morar (3 miles) where there are even more wonderful beaches to enjoy (the Silver Sands of Morar) as well as a hotel bar/restaurant to stop off at for a meal or drink.
In the summer months there are exciting Highland Games to go along to with Arisaig’s taking place in July and Mallaig and Morar’s joint event happening annually every August. Both of these draw in visitors from all around and offer traditional music and dancing as well as the long-established heavy games such as tossing the caber and throwing the hammer.
Head into Fort William for further shopping and exploring and perhaps a truly memorable train journey with a trip on the Jacobite Steam Train that runs from Fort William to Mallaig. Film fans may recognise the train from its fame as part of Hogwart’s Express in the Harry Potter films and the scenery that can be taken in on the journey is truly breathtaking.
