The property

Strontian 1 mile. This lovely, detached cottage is located on the Ardnamurchan Peninsula, on the outskirts of the village of Strontian, and boasts magnificent loch and mountain views. Tastefully decorated in a contemporary style, this cottage is ideal accommodation for a family or a group of friends. The cottage has four bedrooms, a large ground floor double, and three other bedrooms on the first floor, one of which benefits from en-suite facilities. There is also a separate shower room on the ground floor and a family bathroom to complement the first floor bedrooms. The spacious sitting room has a wall of windows allowing unrestricted views over the loch, and the multi-fuel stove provides a cosy atmosphere. The front garden is a special place to sit and enjoy the incredible scenery, and in the garden at the rear, you can view open hillside where deer roam freely. The village of Strontian offers good local services, and there is a variety of hotels to choose from, which provide good dining opportunities. A visit to the wildlife hide at Ardery is a must, where you will be able to see seals, otters and perhaps golden eagles that are common in the area. Alternatively, take a ferry to the small islands of Rhum, Muck, Canna, Mull, Iona and Eigg which are all close enough for a visit from your superb Scotland cottage on the unforgettable Ardnamurchan Peninsula. This fantastic cottage offers a wonderful base to explore the surrounding lochs, beaches and mountains of this glorious part of Scotland.

About the location

STRONTIAN

Corran ferry 14 miles; Mull 20 miles; Glencoe 22 miles; Fort William 23 miles.

Strontian lies on the north shore of Loch Sunart and is the main village serving this sparsely populated but stunning area of the West Highlands of Scotland, generally referred to as the Ardnamurchan Peninsula. The area offers a relaxed pace of life typical of the Highlands with friendly and helpful people, quiet roads and spectacular scenery. Strontian boasts good local facilities with shops, pubs, a petrol station, Post Office and local hotels providing an excellent standard of cuisine. There is a real ‘buzz’ about the village especially in the summer months and wonderful live music can be heard in the Sunart Centre where famous Scottish bands along with local musicians entertain on a grand scale. From Strontian you can drive the spectacular mountain road over the shoulder of Ben Resipole and down to lonely but beautiful Polloch, on the shores of inland Loch Shiel.
