Description

Lily Lodge is an outstanding holiday home that everyone will love. It has been designed, built and finished to an exceptional standard, and the interior is exquisite, not to mention its location and stunning views. This detached property is everything you want from a holiday home. Driving to Diabaig on the west coast of Scotland is one of lifes joys. From whichever direction you are coming from, you will have mountains, forests and lochs galore to feast your eyes on. Once you arrive into Torridon, there’s just 9 miles left to go to Diabaig where Lily Lodge awaits. It’s one of the best drives in the world, and perhaps one of the slowest as there’s so many photo opportunities.

Entering Lily Lodge you arrive into a useful vestibule with space for coats and boots. The hallway is large and there are two bedrooms, one with a double bed, the other with twin beds, as well as a spacious shower room. The piste de resistance of Lily Lodge is the open plan living space which incorporates a sun room. This room is truly special and really makes the most of the setting and abundance of natural light. This large space is perfect for the whole family to relax and enjoy a meal, a movie or simply enjoying the sea view. There is also a utility room with access to the garden. On the first floor there are two further bedrooms, both very spacious with en-suite facilities and views over the bay, to the mountains and out to sea. There is also a small double bedroom with views over hills and crofting land. For those looking to enjoy a family get-together or spend time with friends, there is also a bothy in the grounds which offers accommodation for 2 guests.

Arriving into the hamlet of Upper and Lower Diabaig you’ll be taken aback that the road has been trumped. This amazing settlement of crofts and cottages terraced around the bay has a historic curved pier as its centrepiece, all surrounded by rocky, imposing hills. This idyllic spot really shows Scotland at its best. Staying at Lily Lodge means you’ll be able to soak in the Diabaig setting with ease. The location is perfect and views can be enjoyed from pretty much every room; take in the bay, the sea further out and surrounding hills and mountains.

For those looking to explore, there is so much close by. Hiking is high on the agenda for most that visit this part of the world, with Torridon just down the road. There are walks and hikes all over this part of Wester Ross, and the Beinn Eighe National Nature Reserve on the southern shores of Loch Maree is easily accessible. Beyond Torridon and Loch Maree you have Gairloch to the north with its lovely neighbouring villages, and to the south there is the amazing Applecross Peninsula which can be seen from Lily Lodge. Come for a week, and return for years! Shop 9 miles, pub 11 miles and restaurant 500 yards.
Lily Lodge can be booked together with Mango Pony’s Bothy (ref UK31959) to accommodate upto 12 guests.

About the local area

Skye is one of the largest and best known Scottish islands and is particularly famous for its spectacular mountain scenery. It is also home to some dramatic history, diverse wildlife and rugged mountain beauty. The island of Skye makes for a great holiday destination with many visitor attractions, endless walking routes and fabulous restaurants.

Due to its popularity with tourists, you will find many craft shops and cottage museums. As for sports, you can visit the swimming pool in Portree, play golf at Sconser and Skeabost or go pony trekking. Watersports available on the island include diving, canoeing, windsurfing and yachting. Skye is also the ideal place for fishing and birdwatching.

Skye is easily accessible by either road or ferry. The road bridge is accessible from the Kyle of Lochalsh on mainland Scotland making it ideal for a day trip as well as a longer stay.

Lochalsh is truly highland territory full of clans and castles, hills of heather and views of lochs to the sea beyond. Visit the village of Plockton, a picture perfect location or Scotland's highest waterfall, The Five Sisters of Kintail. Where ever you go you are sure to be surrounded by some truly awesome scenery.

The Western Isles is a chain of islands also known as the Outer Hebrides. The main destination is the Isle of Lewis, a fairly flat island with many spectacular sandy beaches, a rugged coastline and a landscape that is worth investigating. Visitors will enjoy lots of activities including fishing, cycling, walking and bird watching. There are many other standing stones and archaeological monuments to visit too.

The rest of the western Isles can be explored using Lewis as a base. Most of the surrounding islands are covered in a blanket of peat meaning they are teaming with wildlife. Spot birds such as Kittiwakes, Guillemots, Kestrels, Hen Harriers and Redshank. With any luck you may even see otters, seals, eagles or dolphins off shore. In the summer months there are many colourful wild flowers to be seen and if you visit later in the season you can enjoy the heather in full bloom.
