Boasting a spectacular location for the ultimate relaxing break, these two exceptional cottages nestle serenely on the shores of Loch Duich. With their tastefully and very comfortably furnished interiors and easy access to sailing and fishing (boat hire and launching facilities are available just across the road), they offer an ideal holiday base. Lochside House, ref S4532, has magnificent views from most rooms and is stylishly furnished throughout and Achnateird, ref S4172, has direct access to the loch from the large garden. This is excellent walking, cycling and climbing country (the south ridge of Glen Shiel has no less than five munros – hills over 3,000 ft), affording magnificent views of Loch Duich, the Five Sisters of Kintail and famous Eilean Donan Castle, which is surrounded by majestic scenery and is one of the most visited and important attractions in the Scottish Highlands.There are several National Trust properties in the region, including Plockton, a delightful village much loved by artists, and which lies within an easy drive as does Glenelg, home to a country inn providing good food and the seasonal ferry to the Isle of Skye. Here visitors can discover the Isle’s stunning landscape of rugged mountains, tumbling rivers and spectacular coastline that is home to bountiful wildlife, fine museums and craft centres. A shop, post office and pub serving food can be found in Shiel Bridge, 5 miles.
