Description

Spectacularly set close to a secluded shingle beach and private mooring, this detached property has an enviable location and is perfect for those looking for peace and quiet. The property is beautifully furnished and commands stunning sea views over Loch Shieldaig and the sea. Seals and otters are a common sight from the house, which is guaranteed to keep the whole family fascinated for hours. Dramatic mountain views can be enjoyed and for keen walkers there are plenty of interesting walks to be found, including climbing in the Torridon Mountain Range. The cottage is reached via a short rough road from the village where a pub, two shops and a restaurant can be found. Boat trips from Shieldaig and Torridon to the Inner Hebrides on a newly built catamaran.
Trips to the beautiful city of Inverness are easily accessible and the village of Plockton, home to the popular television series Hamish Macbeth is just a short drive. The Isle of Skye is well worth the visit and is accessed via a bridge over the Kyle of Lochalsh. Applecross is another village not be missed, it is an idyllic place where visitors can wander along lanes banked with wild iris and orchids, and explore beaches and rock pools on the shore. It is also an adventure travelling to Applecross, where some of the most breathtaking scenery in Scotland can be seen with panoramic views across the Minch to Raasay and Skye. The nearby Countryside Centre is the gateway to a massive mountain nature reserve. Excellent restaurant 15-minutes drive. Shop and pub 1/2 mile.

About the local area

Discover a wonderful variety of contrasting landscapes that will make a lasting impression, from the remote rock-hewn wilderness of far north west Sutherland to the green rolling coastal lands by the Cromarty Firth. Wherever you travel you're surrounded by some of the most outstanding remote natural beauty in Scotland.

The Highlands is not only blessed with wonderful countryside, there are also miles of dramatic coastline, with quiet pristine sandy beaches, picturesque sea lochs and a scattering of pretty coastal villages close to clear turquoise waters. This is a place to really enjoy `The Great Outdoors', with plenty of activities from mountain climbing and white water rafting to gentle family walks and mountain biking for all abilities.

This part of the British Isles is also a great place to see wildlife; unsurprisingly wildlife flourishes in this great wilderness and there are plenty of opportunities to get out and about on land and sea - take one of the many boat trips on offer for close encounters with seals, whales and dolphins or simply get out into the glens, hills and forests to see eagles, deer and maybe even the elusive pine martin to name but a few.

For a holiday at a more leisurely pace visit the region's many historical sites, ancient castles, stately homes and fascinating museums, learn about the Highlands rich history and culture, its clans and conflicts, the tragedy of the Highland Clearances and its role in the Jacobite risings.

Summer visitors to the Highlands (mostly July and August) may not want to miss the annual Highland Games, which are held across the Highlands and are a unique spectacle of athletic, dancing and piping events which should not be missed!
