Overlooked by mountains and surrounded by the crashing sea, this impressive holiday home offers enchanting views and a truly unique location within the Scottish Highlands.

Pack your bags and escape to this spectacular seaside abode which exudes contemporary style and warmth. This home-from-home promises to provide you with all the creature comforts you will need after returning from days spent adventuring bonnie Scotland. Not only can you step out of your door and into the sea, but you are treated to your own private hot tub, so you can enjoy a soak even closer to home. Sitting between the mountains and the coast with breathtaking views across Lochailort and islands Eigg and Rum, this home is a delight for those with a passion for hiking, swimming and admiring dramatic craggy landscapes. Sleeping 12, make memories with family, friends and four-legged guests and gather in the spacious communal hub which offers the perfect environment for both lively and peaceful nights.

Stepping through the charming porch entrance, find yourself in the vibrant heart of the home. The open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is a double-height space creating a light tranquil environment for that post-adventure downtime. In cooler months, fire up the wood burner and lap up the roaring warmth as you brew a mug of tea in the sleek kitchen; or when the sun shines slide open the doors and let the outside in. Three of four bedrooms can be found on the ground floor, two of which are treated to en-suites and all of which are perfect places to rest weary heads.

Head up to the first floor for a quiet moment in the sitting room; steal away and lose yourself in a book or simply put your feet up and unwind. Younger guests might want to challenge you to a board game, of which there are many on offer. The fourth bedroom is also on this floor and its exciting cabin-style bunk beds are suited to young children.

Although the beautiful interior of this bolthole offers great comfort and class, in this idyllic location you will want to spend every bit of daylight in the great outdoors. With a wonderful decked area overlooking the water, you can do just that. Dine alfresco and cook up a storm on the BBQ as you let the hot tub bubble away, then hop on in and sip a tipple as the sun sets. For a tasty holiday dessert, toast marshmallows over the fire pit and savour a sweet treat before bedtime. Climb down the stairs from the decking and scramble across the rocks and down to the water. Parking at this property is unlimited.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £250 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

The film buffs amongst you will be pleased to admire the Glenfinnan Viaduct which features in the Harry Potter movies when the Hogwarts Express makes its way to school!

Those with a passion for action can make the 35-mile journey to the Nevis Range Mountain Resort where an abundance of exciting activities await including snow sports, paragliding and adventuring amongst the treetops. There are also exhilarating mountain bike trails and a mountain gondola so you can enjoy looking down at the land from above.

Stay close to home and spend the day hiking local trails or head off the beaten track and discover secret spots. For a fun day trip, drive 22 miles to Mallaig and hop on the ferry crossing to the island of Eigg, a beautiful Hebridean island steeped in history where tales of Vikings await.

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.
