Description

Airidh Bheag Cottage ("small sheiling") is a lovely semi detached holiday property which nestles by the banks of the Savary River on the Morvern peninsula in the West Highlands. This self catering accommodation provides a fantastic retreat for a couple, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The lounge has low windows which means you can relax and enjoy a lovely view down to the river and onto the bird feeders where an array of birds, and if you are lucky, even a cheeky pine Marten may come to visit! You can access the owner’s large garden and gain a splendid view over the fields to the Sound of Mull. Access to the seafront is only a 10 minute walk. The local village of Lochaline is two miles away and it provides all the essential amenities including a shop, post office, hotel with pub and an award winning restaurant - the Whitehouse. There is also a ferry which runs regularly over to the Isle of Mull. This is an ideal location to explore the surrounding areas of Morvern,

About the local area

Ardnamurchan, Sunart and over on to the Isle of Mull. The countryside in these areas is diverse with rocky coastlines, fine beaches and majestic mountains, with fantastic areas of unspoilt wilderness. Many of the roads skirt the coastline providing close proximity to the sea, offering plenty of opportunities for coastal walks, kayaking, wildlife watching and sea angling. Locally there are many walks, from gentle strolls to mountain climbs. There are forest trails and the quiet single track roads make for ideal cycling. Horse riding, diving and clay pigeon shooting are all available from local providers. Kiel Church is worth a visit to see the collection of Celtic crosses in the Session House. Ardtornish Gardens has a wonderful selection of rhododendrons and azaleas which are wonderful to see in bloom in late spring. Over on Mull you can enjoy a day trip, or longer - perhaps visit Iona to the South of the island or Tobermory famous for its multi coloured buildings (better known as "Balamory" by younger members of the family!) in the NOrth. You can also take a guided tour around the island perhaps spotting a sea eagle or two. There are also wildlife boat trips where basking sharks and dolphins may be seen. The Point of Ardnamurchan is the home to the most westerly positioned lighthouse in the UK mainland, with wonderful dramatic seascapes. Nearby Sanna Bay, with its perfect white sand, is an ideal spot to watch stunning sunsets over the Inner Hebrides. The Glenmore Natural History Centre is a must visit, described as a "living building" with its turf roof, nesting birds and even home to an otter’s den! A great starting point to find out about the abundance of wildlife in this area. Driving north through Strontian to Acharacle you have yet more stunning coastline and views west to the Small Isle of Canna, Rhum, Eigg and Muck. You can either travel further west to Mallaig and take a ferry to Skye or alternatively, head east for Fort William, passing through Glenfinnan and perhaps even catch a glimpse of the steam train crossing the famous viaduct used in Harry Potter films. Morvern is a wonderful setting for a holiday, really allowing you to get away from the buzz of everyday life, and offers outdoor enthusiast’s really special countryside to explore.
