Alt Na Criche is situated on the banks of Loch Torridon and enjoys spectacular panoramic views of the Torridon mountain range across the loch. Set in its own generous garden grounds this delightful single storey holiday cottage has undergone a complete renovation and provides a high standard of accommodation in a truly superb Highland setting. The pretty lounge has large picture windows overlooking the gardens and across Loch Torridon to the mountains beyond. A wood burning stove acts as a welcoming focal point and the solid oak floors throughout add to the sense of country luxury. The large kitchen/dining room has built in appliances and a family sized solid wood table. There are three beautifully presented bedrooms (one en suite) and a superb modern family sized bathroom. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn. A patio area with outdoor dining table and chairs provides a superb spot to sit and drink in the amazing views. From the cottage and gardens watch otters, seals, red deer, birds and if you’re lucky, even golden eagles. It also provides a wonderful vantage point from which to admire the amazing sunsets over water. There are beautiful coastal walks and beaches right on the doorstep.Shop, pub and restaurant 5 miles.
