Strathcarron Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Sleep from 4 - 8 comfortably, your choice. Private road so no through traffic

A mile from the Estate entrance, the cottages nestle among the hills and fields and in the evenings, deer often come into the gardens to graze. A small stream runs through the garden and you can watch the cows and sheep all round. Attadale Estate offers glorious walking (including two Munros), loch and river fishing. Up in the hills, you can walk all day without seeing anyone. If you enjoy mountain biking, you have lots of opportunities here. You are near the sea. There is no passing traffic as the cottages are at the end of the tarmac road. Furnished with an eclectic mix of antique and modern furniture with attractive prints and paintings in every room, the cottages offer a relaxing and pretty home. New 26' widescreen DVD player in every house. Spend the day curled up with a book or explore far and wide and then return to your comfortable home and warm fire in the evening. Uniquely visitors are able to visit the award winning 4 star Attadale Gardens free of charge at any time during their stay.Free Wifi available

Hill walking, loch & sea fishing, mountain biking: A map is provided in each house with a selection of walks marked on it. The walks vary in length from a couple of hours to all day. Climbing the Munros is only recommended for people who are fit and accustomed to hill-walking. The Attadale estate is ideally situated for walking enthusiasts.

There is fishing available in the hill lochs if you are keen on walking. The river Carron is available to fish for the price of a day ticket which is available locally.

It is good country for mountain-biking enthusiasts. The Lochcarron Garage rents bicycles if you do not bring your own.

Wonderful lodging/stunning location!

  • 5 of 5
Beautifully decorated cottage, with a very comfortable, homey feeling set in an amazingly beautiful area near the Isle of Skye in Northwest Scotland. Everything was handled in a most professional and cordial manner from start to finish regarding the rental of and our stay in the West Bothy at Attadale Estate.
I stayed at the cottage for a week with two teenage daughters and we enjoyed it very much. The kitchen was fully stocked with a nice assortment of everything you could need to prepare meals and there is even a caterer on the estate who will prepare home cooked meals to be picked up or brought to your cottage. Everything from homemade bread to natural, healthy pizza! We enjoyed sitting around the wood fire in the evenings watching BBC historical dramas on the DVD player. Since we are from America we thought that was as British as we could get! The Attadale gardens were amazing in their Fall colors...made some great photos. We hope to return in the future!

Beautiful sights in a comforting home

  • 5 of 5
When we arrived the cottages were beautifully clean and all prepared for us to simply relax into. The area around the cottages is beautiful and many an hour was spent wandering the Attadale Gardens, which were conveniently free for residents of the cottages.Vegetables and herbs from the gardens are also sold and make for a delicious dinner addition, as they are organic and fresh. The cottages were well equipped with all tools needed, and if there was anything wanting, the owners were so welcoming and friendly that it was easy to ask questions. There was also a good supply of books and movies to fill any spare time. It is in a location where it is easy to access beauty spots; such as the Isle of Skye and Loch Ness.
These cottages are well worth staying in for anyone looking for a quiet area to rest and relax.

Strathan & West Bothy Cottages, June 2013

Strathan & West Bothy Cottages, June 2013
  • 4 of 5
Our group of 11 thoroughly enjoyed our week-long stay on the Attadale Estate in June 2013. Five of us used Strathan & six used the West Bothy. The latter would benefit from having a second toilet but otherwise we found both properties to be well equipped & maintained and very clean. We very much enjoyed the two meals we purchased from the newly established catering service run by Linda & her husband Soren, a real must for anyone staying at Attadale. This is a great area for walking, hills, scenery and enjoyment of the lovely gardens on the estate. A bit more garden furniture would be good. We came on the recommendation of friends & have no hesitation recommending Attadale to others.

Attadale Estate

  • 5 of 5
We have been taking holidays at Attadale for over ten years now. Originally we came for the stunning hills of Torridon and Glen Shiel and for access to Skye but we also love being on the estate and enjoy the many low level walks that are available, both on the estate and elsewhere in the area (Coulags to Torridon is a favourite). The gardens on the estate are also absolutely beautiful and merit a visit in their own right - lots of little paths and bridges that children just love exploring as well as a huge range of fascinating plants and sculpture.

We have stayed in all of the cottages (other than Strathan House) over the years and they are all of a similar high standard. They are very comfortable, warm and cosy (good open fires/wood burners with a plentiful supply of logs) and are all well equipped. Everything that you need is there and works and the beds are very comfortable. The cottages are situated about a mile into the estate and are therefore very peaceful, with regular visits from the deer.

In the local area, there are good places to eat and the drive to Applecross, over the Bealach Na Ba, gives jaw dropping views on a clear day and is a pretty exciting drive at any time. There is also a lovely sandy beach just north of Applecross, as seen in Monty Halls’ Great Escape.

Overall a blissful place that we just keep coming back to.

Attadale is a 30,000 acre estate in the North West of Scotland. It stretches from the south shore of Loch Carron to Loch Monar, 15 miles away to the east.

Attadale is ideally situated for touring the North West Highlands. To the North are Applecross, Loch Torridon, Loch Maree and the famous gardens of Inverewe. To the South is the magnificent scenery of Kintail, Glenelg and, at Kyle of Lochalsh, the bridge to Skye.

Attadale Gardens is close by and free access is available to all those who have rented accommodation at Attadale Holiday Cottages.

Lochcarron is but a few miles away around the loch with a number of shops selling useful items.

Other Activities: Fishing, walking, climbing, sailing

Golf: Loch Carron Golf Club - www.lochcarrongolf.co.uk

Lochcarron is a nine hole golf course, although there are actually eleven tees. It measures 3575 yards for eighteen holes and is an enjoyable challenge of accuracy. The Standard Scratch Score and par score for the course is 60.

Every hole on the course offers the golfer something of a challenge.

Whether it is simply avoiding the beach on the first three holes or trying to keep your ball on the humpbacked green at the seventh and sixteenth, all players will find the course a test of skill and character.

Being partly along the shore, a player really knows when the wind blows. Due to the criss-cross nature of the course, the golfer can find themselves faced with a downwind tee shot, then one into the wind and finally a crosswind shot and all in the space of three holes.

The greens are all quite small. Some are flat, some sloping and others with tricky breaks and borrows. They come into their own in the fine summer conditions.
