Property code: CA120

Enjoy views over Loch Torridon from the raised position of this lovingly converted church - the perfect unique bolthole for a family break in the Highlands.

A family home you’ll never want to leave, this converted church sits within a secluded plot in stunning surroundings on the shores of Loch Torridon, overlooked by the majestic figure of Beinn Alligin and the neighbouring peaks.

The house itself has been lovingly restored from church to cottage. Arrive via a set of steps, and you’ll see the facade blending prettily with the landscape, and inside the rooms are bright and spacious, with cosy country touches and elegant, natural decor.

On the ground floor, you’ll find the kitchen and handy boot room. A real country setup, the kitchen boasts a generous family table, all the equipment you could need to make meals for a pack of adventurers, and French doors leading out to a gravelled area, with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. Further on this level is your double bedroom, a sweet, romantic room with en-suite, ideal for a little escape and some time with a good book.

On the first floor, two twin rooms offer delightful retreats, furnished with delicate colours and showing off the astounding views of the surrounding landscape. And, the heart of the home, you’ll find a bright, welcoming sitting room, the perfect place to cosy up in view of the hills and chat about the next day’s activities.

Outside the property is a small gravelled area with mountain views. Please note that the house is accessed via steep steps near the house and that parking is available down these steps and across a bridge.

The property sits in a secluded, wooded area, right on the edge of Loch Torridon. Because of this, guests can enjoy the countryside right from the front door, with walks and trails around the loch, or a scenic drive along the minor road that snakes along this dramatic shoreline.

Beyond the loch sits the mountain range around Glen Torridon, a group of peaks that form a stunning skyline, and, for adventurous travellers, offer a few chances to bag a Munro. Start at the handy parking spot, 2 miles from the house, beneath Beinn Alligin and hike around the steep valley up to the first peak of Tom na Gruagaich.

If this is all sounds a bit too much like hard work, there's plenty to enjoy in Achnasheen (25 miles). This Ross-shire village sits on the River Bran. Take a walk around these valley lanes,or set off from Achnasheen rail station for a scenic jaunt through the Highlands.

There's also plenty to do in the lochs and waterways across the Highlands. Enjoy a tranquil spot of fishing, rent a kayak or learn to windsurf. Travel 18 miles to Beinn Eighe National Nature Reserve in the heart of Wester Ross and explore the woodland or mountain trails.

Lovely property in an idyllic location. Just out of the way enough to feel away from it all. Great facilities and within an hours drive if some great attractions, ideally placed as a stopover for the NC500.

This is a well appointed, spacious cottage, situated about 50m from the shore of Loch Torridon. The area is stunningly beautiful, hill walking heaven and the loch is great for snorkelling and paddle boarding, so long as you don't mind sharing with the otters! We had a wonderful time, and will hopefully return one day.
