Description

Ardaros is a large detached cottage situated in a stunning position above Loch Sunart on the Ardnamurchan Peninsula. Beautifully presented throughout, Ardaros has generously proportioned rooms with large picture windows which exude an air of light and spaciousness. The main lounge has a welcoming open fireplace, with deep sofas and amazing views. Doors open onto the pretty gardens, which are mainly laid to lawn, with flowering shrubs, plants and trees. The farmhouse-style kitchen / dining room is well-equipped, with large range-style cooker and big dining table; ideal for family get-togethers. All the bedrooms are attractively furnished and with two family bathrooms and two en-suites, Ardaros is ideal for larger families, groups and joint-family holidays. The pool / games room at the far end of the landing doubles as an occasional bedroom, with sofa bed.
The gardens are a real delight, with mature flowering shrubs, trees and meandering lawns. They lead directly onto open hillside with lovely walks direct from the property.  Strontian is situated on the edge of beautiful Loch Sunart and the area looks to the sea for its recreation and historically its livelihood. The nearby slipway just a few yards away is suitable for a wide variety of crafts, with a 40’ yacht mooring for visitors’ use.

About the local area

The village of Strontian has good facilities, including a village store, a hotel and restaurant and post office.  The Ardnamurchan peninsular is a totally unspoilt area of the western Highlands.  It offers an abundance of wildlife; otters, pine marten, seals, deer, whales, dolphins and numerous bird species can be sighted in the region.  Take a trip to Ardnamurchan Point, the most westerly part of the UK mainland and visit the lighthouse.  Discover Sanna Bay, with its beautiful white shell beach and turquoise blue sea offering views of the Inner Hebrides. Spend a fascinating day at Glenmore Natural History centre or visit the atmospheric 13th century Castle Tioram, perched on a rocky promontory jutting out into Loch Moidart. The beautiful Isle of Mull is also easily accessible by boat trip from Ardnamurchan.  Enjoy a day wandering around the picturesque town of Tobermoray with its brightly coloured houses clustered around the bay. Just 30 minutes’ drive away, via the Corran car ferry, is Fort William.  Rightly known as the ‘outdoor capital of the UK’, the wealth of activities, outdoor pursuits and places of interest available here are world-renowned.  Climbing and hill-walking in this area are second to none and the Ben Nevis range offers an amazing variety of other sporting activities all year round, including para-gliding, skiing, snowboarding and a world-class mountain bike course.  The less energetic can take a spectacular ride on the gondola that runs up the side of Aanoch Mor and enjoy a meal at the famous mountain restaurant at the top or enjoy a cycle ride along the Great Glen Way.   In the summer months the West Highland steam train, or ‘Hogwart’s Express’ of Harry Potter fame, runs along a wonderfully scenic route through to Mallaig.  From here you can explore some of the smaller isles of Muck, Rhum and Eigg or take the boat across the sea to Skye, returning via the Skye bridge to complete a spectacular circular tour.
