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.

    • “Simply Amazing, Rural Location”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “I cannot recommend this cottage highly enough. The lounge/dinning area is expansive and leaves plenty of room for lounging on the two leather couches or sitting at the 8 place round dinning table. One bedroom was downstairs (great for Grandad) and the other upstairs (great for us and the kids). Three shower rooms (one with a bath) are more than sufficient. Lovely wooden floors throughout which meant the kids could make a mess and we could tidy it up with little fuss! The Cottage has basic Sky channels, a DVD player, HIFI and WIFI. The WIFI was of a good standard with only a few dropped connections and could usually sustain a 1mg+ connection throughout the house. Signal was better in the lounge of course. The Cottage itself enjoys great views up the Loch and is only a short walk from the path to the beachside. The path to the beach was quite soggy when we visited to wear appropriate footwear. From the Cottage you have 3 or 4 local choices for food without driving more than 10 minutes. Anything else is quite a drive though and requires careful planning on your return from trips out or cooking at home - which we did alot of the time on the large double sized electric hob and oven. If you plan to be in Fort William or on the "real" mainland for much of your trips I would make sure you factor in Ferry times and costs, but I imagine if you're looking this location that isn't your real concern. Be prepared though, the location is on the Ardnamurchan Peninsula (effectively) which is accesible by Ferry for £9 or so a trip (which leaves every 30 minutes and takes only 5 to cross) or by longer single track road to Fort William which takes around an hour or so.”

    • “We'd love to return.”

    • “We had a lovely stay in this fantastic cottage on the outskirts of Strontian overlooking Loch Sunart, beautiful views from all the windows. The house was beautifully clean tidy and warm with plenty of coal/logs for the stove. The owner had even lit the stove for our arrival.....a lovely welcome. The highlight of the cottage was the pinemartin who visited almost every night to eat the peanut butter we had put on the log store right outside the back door to entice him. The kitchen light and us with our noses pressed to the door didn't deter him. There are a couple of shops and cafes in the village for necessities. There's also a hotel/pub overlooking the bay. Fantastically positioned for touring the area, although be prepared for the very narrow roads!! Not much traffic though and plenty of passing places. We had a fantastic relaxing time and would love to return someday.”

    • “Myself and three friends rented this property. It has been one of the best holidays we have ever had.The views are absolutely mind blowing. The property itself has been done up to a very high standard. It has luxurious furniture, amazing kitchen and appliances including cutlery, pots and pans, plasma tv, sky, dvd player, book, games and wi-fi. It is very easy to get to and has good privacy. The landlords are very very nice people and the local people are very welcoming. There is a pub, hotel, petrol pump, two local shops and a cafe. The property is not that far from Fort William and other tourist attractions. The beach is a five minute walk and is good for fishing. There are many, really nice, footpath walks within the immediate area. We will definitely be back again in the near future and would recommed to all. To summarise, great location and views, value for money, amazing facilities and really welcoming locals.”

About the location


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.
