Luxury family seaside location - 10 + 2 Ideal for 8 adults and 4 children

What a location! Looking out over the sea, this fabulous holiday house captures the rugged beauty and timeless magic of the Scottish Highlands. Designed and built to be part of the landscape, Taigh Na Coille takes full advantage of the mesmerising views from all angles.

Taigh Na Coille occupies a wonderfully secluded position tucked behind pine trees above the beach creating an outstanding holiday destination for all ages. The beautifully presented interiors combined with the inspirational views across Lochailort to the Hebridean islands of Eigg and Rum make it easy to slow down, unwind and truly relax into holiday mode.

The double height open plan sitting, dining and kitchen area ensures that you don’t miss out on a moment of holiday time and the floor to ceiling windows make the most of the captivating views. Slide open doors on to the large elevated decking area which literally floats over the ancient rocky landscape beneath. Soak up the unrivalled al fresco dining seascape from sunrise to sunset or relax in the cedar hot tub and watch the sun sink beneath the horizon, leaving the sky ablaze with colour. If the weather changes simply retreat to warmth of the heated oak floors and curl up on the large sofa by the log-burner.

The second cosy sitting room upstairs is perfect for those who might want to watch TV or play games and the adjacent bedroom with its two cabin-style bunk beds will delight the younger generation. The luxurious master bedroom not only has its own decked balcony but also boasts a log-burner, making it all the more tempting to enjoy a lazy morning. There are two further delightful downstairs bedrooms both taking full advantage of the panoramic views and the bathroom is stylishly furnished with a deep double-end bath which has been perfectly positioned for relaxing in while gazing out across the bay at the astounding outlook.

Nestled between the mountains and the sea, Taigh Na Coille is ideal for enjoying the great outdoors with glorious picnic spots and endless walks right from the doorstep. Conveniently located within easy reach of Fort William, ‘Outdoor Capital of the UK’, Taigh Na Coille is a perfect base for those looking to explore this fabulous area of Scotland with its amazing history, outstanding scenery and glorious wildlife. There are many local attractions including the distinguished Glenfinnan Monument, Nevis Range Ski Centre and downhill mountain bike course. Take a trip on the wonderful Jacobite Stream Train over the famous Glenfinnan viaduct from the Harry Potter films or experience the historic Glencoe. Loch Ness, The Isle of Skye, Ardnamurchan and Oban are all a comfortable day out and the islands of Skye, Rum, Muck, Eigg and Canna can be visited from nearby Mallaig and Arisaig.

Roshven and Lochailort is a fantastic place to observe many of the iconic Scottish species including otters, red deer, pine marten, Scottish wildcats, red squirrels and seals – you may even glimpse a golden eagle or sea eagle flying over the loch or in front of the mountains and trees.

    Taigh na Coille, Roshven reviews
    A beautiful house in a remote yet stunning location. Extremely comfortable with beautiful views from all rooms. Top specification luxury 5 star accommodation. A Great place to unwind
    Mr Slater - December 2018
    Although we knew we were coming to a modern house the actual experience of being in an architect-designed building was brilliant. Everything was so well thought out. The views were fantastic and the extras like the hot tub most welcome. The house was was very generously equipped and everything worked! We would thoroughly recommend staying here and hope to come back ourselves in the future. Marvellous.
    Mr & Mrs Jellicoe - September 2018
    The house is amazing in a fabulous location, we all loved it. Beautiful sunsets every evening. We were blessed with very warm weather do kayaked and swam in the loch. We will definitely return
    Mrs Stanley - June 2018
    We, two families of a total 8 people, enjoyed the beautiful modern house with its stunning view.
    Mr Saremba - May 2018
    We had a lovely week at this beautiful holiday house. Everything was just perfect. A fantastic holiday was had by everyone in our party.
    Mr Maddox - February 2018
    We found this house to be in a great position, well equipped and with views which more than met our expectations having read other reviews. We had a lovely and relaxing holiday and the house is luxurious throughout, bedrooms and bathrooms were finished to a high standard, meaning every aspect of our holiday was very good. Our only slightly negative comment is that the lighting throughout is very low energy (fine) but there is not much of it. We kept going to turn lights on and finding that they were already on. It is November but the lighting is not adequate for reading or any kind of craft such as knitting. The external lights were not very good either and a torch is a must if approached in the dark as the entrance involves steep steps. This is our only moan and the house and the local area are stunning. The Glenuig Inn locally was welcoming and food very good.
    Mrs Sellwood - November 2017
    We had a wonderful week at Taigh na Coille. It is a superb property and fantastic for a relaxed family get together. The view from the house is beautiful and watching the sunset from the beach was very special. We didn't want to leave. The weather was great and allowed us to fully explore the area. We went walking, kayaking and took boat trips out to the Small Isles. The local Glenuig Inn was very friendly and welcoming and offered a very good menu and high quality food. The local smokehouse was great for buying smoked fish and meats. We would highly recommend this property. We will be back!
    Mrs Bone - September 2017
    We absolutely loved our week at Taigh na Coille and can't recommend it highly enough. Total relaxation in stylish comfort with a breathtaking view. We walked, kayaked, swam, enjoyed the hot tub, and spent hours watching the ever changing weather, even the midges weren't a problem thanks to smidge! A very special place, we'll definitely be back.
    Mrs Dunn - July 2017
    Superb, modern house, beautifully tucked away in an unspoiled corner of paradise. Nice access to Mallaig, Arisaig and Morar to the north and Ardnarmurchen to the south. The sunsets over the isles are memorable. House easily accommodated our party of seven, with nooks for teenagers. Local caretakers (Roma, Billy) were delightful. A couple of things to bear in mind. In summer, the architectural floor to ceiling windows bring the outside in, but a rare full day of sunshine makes the inside really hot. No A/C. You can open the sliding doors and windows unless the midges are out! If the midges are out, choose. The guest wifi is fickle, not commercial strength. Maybe that's a plus. House's boats and canoes are understandably off-limits. A boat here would have added a fabulous dimension to the overall experience, so you may want to arrange before you come. Best trips: the beach at Cambusdarroch, just short of Mallaig, is worthy of its movie star status. The drive to Kilchoan, ferry to Tobermory and lunch at the Fish Place on the pier was our favorite trip. Glen Uig Inn is a fine local. Good food and beer, and gorgeous walk along the road after. The Arisaig Hotel is a great pub and restaurant, and really nice people. The Dining Car at Glenfinnan Station is a good lunch, and the whole Glenfinnan visitors' center is well done (even in the pouring rain). Recommend the mussels at the Clachan in Mallaig, and Mass with Father Stanislav was beautiful. Kids (from 9-21) loved the Jacobite Steamer from Fort William to Mallaig and back. Book ... or ride the local service for about a tenth of the price. The golf course at Traigh next to Morar is just stunning, and as quirky as you've ever played if you are a golfer. Do nine. They rent clubs. The major grocery store in Fort William, Morrisons, is behind the station. Otherwise, the Spar in Arisaig and the Coop in Mallaig do the job. Fresh sea food in the industrial area by the pier in Mallaig, and an artisan bakery round the corner. Hours are fickle for a tourist destination. The fish and chip shop at Mallaig station is top notch. Forty five minutes to Fort William and a good four hours to Edinburgh airport.
    Mr Hunter - May 2017
    I defy anyone not to be impressed by this house. It was painful to have to leave. The house is finished to a very high standard and optimises it's location with stunning views across the Loch from virtually every square inch of floor space. The wrap around balcony is also a stunning spot to relax and watch the sunset. It's all very well designed taking advantage of a spectacular landscape. No photo could possibly do it justice. Certain we'll be back!
    Mr Heaney - October 2016
    Beautiful house, amazing scenery,wonderful location.
    Dr Humphries - October 2016
    We have had an amazing stay at Roshven. The whole family wish we had booked for longer as the accommodation was second to none and the location breath taking. We had a lovely week; joining in with the Highland Games; kayaking around the beautiful coastline; swimming in the sea in front of the cottage and also on surrounding beaches; walking the dogs up a couple of hills; relaxing in the hot tub; sitting the decking with the fire pit admiring the sunsets; visiting the local visitor centers and sampling local beers and seafood. Wish we were still there!
    Mr Middlemist - August 2016
