There are wonderful walks on the estate along wild shorelines and in the hills, with abundant wildlife. There are four hill lochs on the estate with wild brown trout. In winter the ski slopes near Fort William and Glencoe are easily accessible. Other sporting facilities are available on request.

Les Ecossais sont toujours très accueillants. Cottage à recommandé. TRANSLATION: Beautiful cottage, well appointed, and comfortable. Beautiful place, in the middle of nature, and easy access. Many sites to visit without making many kilometers: Malaig, Isles of Skye, Loch Ness, Glenfinnan ... Natural preserved area where we can see "Red Deer". Magnificent. The Scots are always very welcoming. Cottage recommended.
    Mr Royer - August 2019
    Beautiful cottage! It was like coming from home to home!! Definitely booking again next year.
    Mrs Circelli. - August 2019
    Shepherd's House was a remote spot which was great! Friendly welcome from the estate manager who gave us some local tips. House was great for a base, and enclosed garden was good for kids and dog (though beware of tics!) There was even a friendly deer that visited most days. Internet did not work during our stay, though we managed fine without. Water was peat stained - so if that bothers you bring bottled, but is uv filtered so safe to use. Good wee store several miles away which was well stocked. We had great day trips put to Glenfinnan, Mull and some nearby woods and an animal hide.
    Dr Treon - July 2019
    Clean and comfortable, well-equipped house. Friendly welcome by estate manager Harvey. Huge variety of day trips from the house. We particularly enjoyed a trip to Iona, Ardnamurchan lighthouse and sailing on the loch. We recommend eating out at Strontian Inn if you want a break from self-catering.
    Mrs Jensen - July 2019
    After a long journey from Cornwall, the Shepherd's House was an absolute joy to find. The location is beautiful with incredible mountain/loch views, a peaceful setting and a contemporary, comfortable and spacious place to stay. Harvey was brilliant, friendly and helpful and the farm setting was secluded (no traffic noise) yet with easy access to the main roads around the area. The cottage has everything we could wish for and is so well equipped including a handy cloakroom area for drying boots/coats with ample hanging space and massive wardrobes. Immaculately clean and perfect for a couple or family, it was relaxing just to sit on the sofa and watch the changing light on the mountains and although our weather was mostly wet, it was warm and inviting to return to. Even had a delightful visitor, a deer 'Deerdre' who enjoyed our carrots. The mountain water is 'peaty' brown but it feels healthy and is safe to drink! The village of Strontian has a fabulous 'Strontian Hotel/Bothy Bar' that serves superb food. The Glencoe Gathering serves the best haddock and chips in the world. The Corran Ferry (free to us as my husband is registered disabled) was straightforward to use too. The location is excellent for walking, running, sports and sightseeing for Glencoe/Fort William and the Ardnamurchan Peninsula and Lighthouse (awesome but challenging 40 mile drive on single track road with exquisite views - well worth the journey). There's even a beach within a few minutes' walk! It felt like paradise for us - the best holiday cottage we've ever stayed in. We LOVED our week there and were sorry to leave.
    Mrs Pyke - June 2019

    Mr Ratzsch - August 2018
    Shepherds House is in a beautiful location with everything you need for your stay. It was very clean with facilities including washing machine, dryer and dishwasher. We stayed in May/June and the weather was fantastic and it proved a perfect base to explore the area. We visited Fort William, Oban, Loch Ness and the west coast including Sanna beach. Would definitely recommend this cottage and the area, our only problem was we didn’t get to use the log burner as the weather was so good.
    Mrs Tarbitt - May 2018
    Been here 3 times already , and would definitely go back again, lovely and warm clean cottage, had a visit every time from the manager Harvey, who is helpful with the area ,lots of info what to do, where to walk, very friendly and happy to help, the Corran restaurant at the ferry ,is excellent, great food and staff, also a little tea room ,at ariundle, had fresh scones out of the oven and a pot of coffee , after a good walk round the ariundle area , spacious cottage, fenced round for pets can't fault it Pat and Alan lancs
    Mrs Davies - May 2018
    Clean comfortable cottage. Remote enough to be peaceful and near enough to explore highlands. On arrival a little disappointed to find building work being done on site, however, spending most of the time exploring surroundings this did not affect our enjoyment. Would book again.
    Mr Hilton - March 2018
    Was a lovely cottage very roomy bedrooms comfy beds and lovely and warm..the logs and kindling provided were very welcome and the log burner made a great homely feel to the place. everything you could need on holiday was provided in the well stocked kitchen ..... the only thing that was missing from this cottage (compared to many we have stayed in ) there were only 2 books and one tiny puzzle ..we would have liked to play cards or board games as we were out during daylight hours but came in by 6.30 pm in (March time cold and wet so evening activities were an important part of the day) We would definitely go back to this cottage but will take our entertainment with us..the best was the comfy beds and lashings of red hot water for a long soak after a cold day outdoors.
    Mrs Muter - March 2018
    Lovely house. Really great to relax in. Estate Manger was very friendly and helpful. Would recommend.
    Mrs Paget - August 2017
    We Highly recommend this beautiful little cottage, we had a fabulous week exploring the highland of Scotland. The accommodation was quiet, clean, modern, very comfortable with superb views for the and back of the property.
    Mrs Smith - May 2017

    Mrs Davies - May 2016
    The view, the peace, the setting - all fantastic. The local estate manager was tremendously helpful in suggesting walks and wildlife spotting sites and the cottage was really comfortable.
    Mrs Griffiths - July 2015
    This is a lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings. We have stayed here before and were looking forward to coming back and we were not disappointed. Mr Philips the Estate Manager is friendly, welcoming and helpful. Lots of wild life and a superb location. The cottage is clean very comfortable and well equiped. Suited us perfectly as we could also take our dog.
    Ms Fiani - May 2015
    We selected Shepherd's Cottage primarily because of its location, which for us was an unexplored area of Scotland. The ferry crossing at Ardgour made the experience that bit more exciting for my two boys, aged 10 and 12. The cottage itself is nested at the head of the valley to the west and faces to the east over Loch Linnhe to Glen Coe; stunning 360 degree scenery! The cottage was good but somewhat short of excellent. It was clean and tidy but there was no hot water for much of the holiday until we discovered the heating thermostat tucked away in a cupboard in the utility room. Had there been any welcome pack we would have known how to control it from the first day. The water also ran yellow and was distasteful which meant that we had to buy in bottled water. Also the television aerial was damaged and only in clear skies without any wind could we watch any of the five available channels; this was a shame as we all wanted to watch the closing ceremony of the Commonwealth Games. We found this surprising as it was mentioned in the guest book as far back as 2008!! Rectifying these issues could make this cottage achieve a five star rating.
    Mr Bennett - August 2014
    Shepherds house was a delightful cottage.It was well stocked with kitchen equipment and beautifully furnished, the sofas are so comfy. Plenty of bedding supplied, with extra quilts available if needed. Well positioned for trips to the west coast, Loch Ness and Ben Nevis. Local area is beautiful, with great wildlife. Good housekeeping deposit returned promptly.
    Mrs Simpson - August 2013
    Sheperd's House was exactly what we were looking for. It was comfortable, quiet, and truly authentic. The view from the back of the house is wonderful. Thank you very much, Harvey for making us feel at home and for the freshly picked winkles! We had a great week.
    Mr Leroi - August 2013
    The cotage was great, but the place was a little too far.
    M Guirado - August 2012
    We were impressed by the space of the Shepherd's House - recent renovations have yielded a house suitable for a large (or small) family group to holiday in comfort. The house is in turn-key condition, and has been furnished with the help of IKEA; it's easy to keep clean and the kitchen is well-equipped. Although there is a stove (which we used one night for the sheer fun of it), the house is amazingly snug. We holidayed in the 'summer' of 2012: two days were hopeless weather-wise, two were idyllic, and the other days were ok. But people don't come here for sunshine, so that was fine; but the warm, damp spring and summer meant that midges were everywhere, so sitting outside was a non-starter. The estate manager made us welcome, and with kids eager to walk and get out, regardless of the weather, we had the run of 8,000 acres, across mountains and shoreline. The opportunities for eating out are excellent. We enjoyed the hotel in Strontian, and the Boat House. Scotland's alcohol licences mean that children must be out of bars/restaurants by 10pm; hence some of them stop serving anytime from 8.30pm onwards, which needs to be kept in mind for parents who want to eat something other than fast food. We were late coming down from Ben Nevis, and the only option in Fort William at 9.40 seemed to be McDonalds. The kids were thrilled. The Corran ferry is the other time factor that needs to be kept in mind. It stops running at 9.30. After that time, travellers from the south will have to take a long journey. If you enjoy wildlife, that's fine (we spotted - close-up - deer, hedgehogs, sheep, an owl, foxes and HUNDREDS of frogs on our later travels). In short, we enjoyed our holiday. We had TV and internet for when we were in the house; we had an excellent kitchen in which to have a go at cooking haggis; we had excellent opportunities to eat out; and we we could enjoy being a ferry-ride away from civilization, we knew that we could hop in the car and head for the town if the need arose. The owners are doing an excellent job of making it easy to delve into the highlands, and the estate manager has a gentle way of offering hospitality.
    Dr Pierce - July 2012
    Accommodation was lovely (2 showers would have been useful for 6 of us), area was lovely though ferry somewhat expensive and really needed it to get most places, buying a book of tickets worked out better value. Would definitely go back if holidaying in the area again.
    Mrs Manvell - August 2011
    This was our third stay in this excellent cottage and as always we enjoyed it immensely. The cottage is warm and comfortable and the furnishings are much better than many other cottages in this price bracket. The garden is large and fully fenced, perfect for pets and small children. The scenery is wonderful and there is a sandy beach virtually on the doorstep. We would easily rate this cottage as 4 star if it had wifi and satellite TV.
