Lovely house, stunning location, friendly and helpful owner
Beautiful location, off the beaten track but short drive to shops & civilisation at Mallaig. Well equipped kitchen, comfortable furniture in a warm and well refurbished cottage. Marion was super helpful and responsive. Couldn’t be happier that I found this little gem. Highly recommended.
Thank you Simon.
So happy you enjoyed our home as much as we do.
You are welcome back any time.
Beautiful location - high quality accommodation
The house itself looked pleasant enough and well maintained from the outside. It is well away from the nearest other houses - all out of sight, giving the impression of complete isolation. Sheep graze the fields leading up to the house from the road and a small stream provides background sound. Otherwise there is complete silence.
Inside it is well furnished with good quality modern furniture and fittings. The house was well heated and excellently equipped with every possible piece of equipment/tools/kitchen utensils/laundry and dishwasher needed to enjoy our stay. Surplus dry food, pasta etc and bottles of cooking sauce and more were available although not needed for our short stay.
The location of the property is awesome. We were spoiled by a few days of bright autumn sunshine which provided views to the horizon and beyond, with snow capped mountains around us. Access to the main road to Mallaig/Fort William is easy enough along a single track road along the Loch, allowing a rapid dash to catch the ferry to Skye. Visitors should take the trouble to abandon the modern main road and use the old coast road to see the best of the fabulous beaches, especially at sunset when the sun sinks behind the islands to the west.
Behind the house, the hills rise and provide fairly easy climbing to the plateau overlooking the house and Loch Morar to the south, the sea with the small Isles and Skye to the west and further hills stretching away to the north - wonderful jaw droppingly beautiful views in the clear air. Mountain-top snowball fights in the sunshine in October were an unexpected bonus.
In icy conditions some care may be required to navigate the last few hundred yards of the road where there is a bit of a hill and the drive up to the house. Fortunately any snow at ground level had melted away within a few hours.
I did not recall seeing mention in the property description of the 3rd bedroom having bunk beds. Fortunately the younger children were able to use them without problems. Some families with older children may find this more of an issue. Apologies if I missed that detail.
Overall a wonderful stay in a lovely property.
Wow, thank you for such an amazing review! We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. You have captured perfectly what we think about our cottage and so pleased you think the same.
We would gladly welcome you back anytime!
Our house is situated near the deepest fresh water loch in the UK which is great for fishing wild trout and salmon (Fishing Permit required). if you are a Harry Potter fan you can catch the Harry Potter Steam train over the Glenfinnan Viaduct. lots of beautiful white sandy beaches are within minutes from the house.
Sea-Kayaking is available from Arisaig if you would like to explore the coast line, Whale and Dolphin watching is also available from the Marinas in Arisaig or Mallaig
