A traditional, detached croft house, cosy and double-glazed, it is one of a little group of three in this peaceful spot. It faces south west, so is sunny for most of the day and ideally placed to view the spectacular west coast sunsets.
To the front there is a sun-trap terrace garden (with furniture) and a nearby path leads down to the shore, where otters and seals can often be seen. The house is accessed by a 50 metre path from a small car park at the end of Ardnaeskan Road.
Inside, it has been refurbished to a high standard and the wood panelling, so typical of traditional Highland houses, has been retained in most of the rooms. The living accommodation in particular cannot fail to delight guests. The wood-panelled sitting room is large and beautifully furnished with comfortable seating around the little electric stove. The staircase at the back of the room is a further attractive feature.
The well-equipped pine kitchen is very much farmhouse style with plenty of room for cooking. Guests have the choice of eating either in the kitchen or in the dining room that also has another electric stove. The handy utility room also houses a useful additional WC.
There are two staircases, one leading from the hall to a double bedroom with a king-size bed, a twin bedroom and a bathroom. The second staircase leads from the sitting room to a second twin bedroom and another bathroom so you can go to bed in your own separate ‘wing’. All of the bedrooms are very comfortable and of a good size and in all of them you can wake up to the lovely view from their dormer windows. Loads of character then, as well as comfort!
Chilling out and relaxing is the order of the day at Cuillin View, but there is so much to do and see in this part of the world, that you are bound to be tempted away to explore at least some of the delights of the area.
An hour's drive will have you on Skye (30 miles) with its many attractions. The Applecross Peninsula, which you access over the spectacular Pass of the Cattle, is a delight and there is a sandy beach there just beside the village (10 miles, with pub). Heading further north, you will reach Shieldaig and Torridon (26 miles) so beloved of walkers and climbers and on to the famous sub-tropical gardens at Inverewe (50 miles). If a day in the city appeals, then you could leave the car at Strathcarron Station and take the train up the glen to Inverness (67 miles).
Don't forget to visit picturesque Plockton (23 miles), with its palm trees and yachting marina, perhaps stopping for lunch at one of its excellent restaurants. The Rockvilla Hotel at Lochcarron and the Strathcarron Hotel at Strathcarron (9 miles) both serve good meals and the Carron restaurant is just a mile further down the Kyle of Lochalsh road. Lochcarron has two well-stocked general stores, one of which is also a PO, and some lovely gift shops. Strathcarron has a PO, while Kyle of Lochalsh is the nearest place for major supermarket shopping.
There is an attractive 9-hole lochside golf course at Lochcarron which welcomes visitors, with snacks and bar meals available in the clubhouse. Lochcarron also has a sailing club and mountain guides for climbing on Skye and the higher peaks round about and mountaineering courses, are available locally.
