Lochside Cabin nestles at the junction of three ancient sea lochs, with views out over the Kintail Mountains and the iconic Eilean Donan Castle. We highly recommend a stroll down to the castle, and a ramble along the unfenced track to the pebble beach.
Foodie highlights include artisanal sourdough from Manuela’s Wee Bakery only a short walk away and creel-caught langoustine from local fisherman Duncan. For lovers of peated whiskies, a tour of Skye’s Talisker distillery shouldn’t be missed. The award-winning Kinloch Lodge and Duisdale House Hotel are an easy drive away (pre-booking is a must).
You must spend a day exploring the Isle of Skye and if you’re brave enough, do take a dip in the fairy pools. There’s so much beautiful wildlife to spot; from otters, whales, seals, sea eagles and dolphins… and if you’re not sure where to start looking, the island has guided tours.
A completely unique property in the Scott Williams UK programme which we are extremely excited about:
The house is a modern interpretation of a traditional crofter’s dwelling where the rugged exterior conceals exquisitely designed and tactile furnishings. Here, the owners have achieved a luxurious balance of modern Scandinavian, mid-century and Scottish design whilst acknowledging the legacy of the Norse-Gaels who settled in western Scotland in the 9th century.
Sliding glass walls make the living space part of the landscape beyond and from here, guests can relax amid panoramic views of Loch Duich, Eilean Donan Castle and the Kintail Mountains.
The owner tells us that at this latitude there’s daylight for almost 18 hours during the summer solstice, it’s an idyllic place to sip an early morning coffee or while away long sunsets over the water.
Stay here for a natural antidote to hectic daily life.
