Description

Four Lagg is a beautifully renovated semi-detached cottage on the shores of the sea loch Loch Long. The location is unrivalled for scenery and is perfect for exploring the best of the Scottish Highlands as well as the ever-popular Isle of Skye. As you reach Eilean Donan Castle, iconic now around the world, sitting out on its island in the sea loch, you arrive into the wonderful shoreside village of Dornie.
There’s a front and back garden to the property, perfect for you to walk around and simply gaze out across the water or up towards the mountains that surround you. Sheep, deer and pine marten come right down to the garden from the hills, and you’ll see golden and sea eagles soaring above.
Inside the property the living/dining room is spacious, light and very comfortable, furnished with the owner’s exquisite handmade cushion covers and with views along Loch Long. The kitchen is adjoining the living/dining room and is large, modern and very well finished, there is a breakfast table as well as a utility room with door to the garden. On the ground floor you will also find the well finished shower room with walk-in shower. Upstairs there’s a kingsize bedroom and a spacious twin room. Both have gorgeous views across the loch and of the surrounding mountains.
There is so much to see in this part of Scotland, and Four Lagg is in an unrivalled location to be able to explore it all. You can be on the Isle of Skye in 15 minutes, round to Glenelg and Arnisdale in 30 minutes, over to Lochcarron in a similar time and Applecross and Torridon only 45 minutes to an hour’s drive. You can walk in every direction from the property, along the shore to Eilean Donan Castle or up into the hills for some of the finest hiking you’ll find. There’s a pub a short walk away and a restaurant, so you can stroll back home after a bottle of wine, a rare opportunity in the Highlands. Beach 1 mile. Shop, pub and restaurant 500 yards.

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.
