With dramatic vistas over Loch Ailort and out towards Rhum and Eigg, this secluded holiday home is an outstanding base from which to explore the rugged north-west of Scotland.

Escape to nature with a trip to this wonderful Highlands lodge, where you can collapse into a comfy sofa and watch wildlife saunter past from the large windows. This totally secluded home is set amongst the trees in the rugged Scottish countryside, surrounded by towering mountains, quiet lochs and dense woodland. Sleeping ten guests and boasting plenty of space to settle in, you’ll instantly feel at home in this charming property.

Decorated with an original farmhouse style, the property has a homely atmosphere that’ll leave everyone feeling instantly welcome. The large rooms boast a muted decor, utilising printed soft furnishings and antique-style furniture. Throughout the home, you’ll find generous windows that offer far-reaching views of the breathtaking surrounding scenery.

The heart of the ground floor is the spacious lounge and open-plan sunroom. An abundance of seating options offer space for everyone to curl up in the evening, and you can sit and enjoy watching TV together. In the sunroom, you’ll find armchairs pointing towards a wide window, an excellent spot for watching the local wildlife or sitting down to a good book. Draw the curtains between two rooms in order to enjoy a spot of privacy whilst relaxing. Another large area is the farmhouse kitchen – which is well equipped and offers the chance to cook on an original Aga – leading onto a dining room with sociable circular table. Sit down to a cheery breakfast as the sun pours in from surrounding windows. The first of an impressive five bedrooms can be found on this floor too and is arranged as a cosy twin with a handy en-suite shower room.

Everyone else can head to bed upstairs, where four further bedrooms can be found on the first floor. Two of these bedrooms are cosy doubles with handy en-suite bathrooms. Completing the home are two twin bedrooms. These cosy spaces are great for children sharing, and both rooms share a final family bathroom. All the beds are perfectly comfy for resting after a long day in the Scottish hills.

At the front of the home, you’ll find a large gravelled driveway with more than enough space to park your cars. To the rear of the property is a large grassy lawn, surrounded by bright flora and greenery. The secluded location of the property ensures privacy in this lovely garden, and you can enjoy ball games with the children with wonderful loch views in the background.

Walking, hiking and mountain biking are the most popular pastimes in the western Highlands, and an abundance of mountains and hills are nearby for you to summit. Enjoy far reaching views from the top of Rois-Bheinn, a mountain you can access within 1.5 miles of the house. Many choose to explore the nearby An Stac (2 miles) alongside Rois-Bheinn. Those who prefer the calmer sport of golf can head 14 miles north to Arisaig for a popular course.

The Highlands offers plenty of options for keen fishermen, and you can fish for salmon, sea trout and brown trout in the nearby lochs and waters. Head to Loch Eilt (6 miles) for an enjoyable day out on the water. You can also retreat into the woodlands to track exciting wildlife such as red and roe deer, grouse and wildfowl. Head to the nearby Loch Ailort (1 mile), a sea loch, to spot seals and even the odd whale!

Take a trip to the closest built-up area of Fort William, a picturesque town that sits at the base of the towering Ben Nevis (31 miles). Here you'll find a selection of charming waterside pubs and eateries, a museum dedicated to the history and culture of the West Highlands and even a popular distillery for whisky tours.

Large and comfortable cottage in a very peaceful location, helpful and friendly caretaker, with all the proper precautions in place for Covid-19. Recommended for a break to get away from it all.

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
