Lovely cottage in beautiful spot with great views of Beinn Eighe

Stunning location in the wilderness.

Torran Cottage is the loner's dream. Hidden away at the end of a 3-mile drive through woods, lochs and rivers, it stands in splendid isolation at the head of Coulin Pass. You can just about see the Coulin Farmhouse half a mile off, but that's about it. There's everything you need in the cottage, so there's no need to go out...unless you want to samRead moreple the joys of nearby Torridon and Sheildaig, the inspiring Benn Eighe, and the unspoilt Loch Maree. A morning run through the Coulin pass will take you around 7 miles through empty hillsides and and an idyllic descent to a valley. Again, no people. Be careful of the midges and horseflies though. They literally eat you alive. Take plenty of repellents and wear long sleeves, even on a hot summer day. Even pradise has its drawbacks...Oh, and take you dog. He'll never be the same again. Hide

Our second visit to Torran cottage and it was as good as the first. We will never tire of the views from the cottage, the peace and quiet and the amazing walk/running routes.

Reviewed by Mr Stark June 2019

This is a spacious but basic cottage with an awesome view of Beinn Eighe. You could just live in the kitchen and admire the view. There have been a few recent changes on the estate - two new "run of river" hydro schemes, one near the cottage but so neatly done that it adds to the scene. A great deal of mature timber has been felled, leaving the lowRead moreer slopes rather barren pending re-planting. Finally, the cottage now has Wi-Fi - you won't be downloading films but it's great for news & weather info. Hide

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.
