    “We drove up to the house in the pouring rain, but it was so beautifull, after we crossed with the ferry it was still half an hour left but we were so bussy looking around that we never noticed it until it was mentioned by the third person of our party (who did the driving).”

    When we arrived at the house the central heating was off, but we found this was not a problem as the heating in the house worked perfectly and within 10 minutes it was very nice and comfortable. The house was very big for 3 people, but it was so relaxed, the showers were excellent (good water pressure) and looked gorgeous, do remember to turn the warm water valve. The kitchen was amazing, the fridge was large with two large freezer drawers, we were so impressed by the kitchen. The ...

    When we arrived at the house the central heating was off, but we found this was not a problem as the heating in the house worked perfectly and within 10 minutes it was very nice and comfortable. The house was very big for 3 people, but it was so relaxed, the showers were excellent (good water pressure) and looked gorgeous, do remember to turn the warm water valve. The kitchen was amazing, the fridge was large with two large freezer drawers, we were so impressed by the kitchen. The fireplace worked perfectly, the fact that around the corner of the kitchen door there was wood and coal you could use, made it really convinient and comfortable. We saw a lot of beauty, made a recommended walk that we found in the folders. For our trip home we left at midnight and couldn't take the ferry, we took the small road up to forth william. It is advisable that if you have to drive at night, to make this road atleast ones during the day so you know what to expect, because there are a lot of sheeps and deer. But it was also well worth it secretly, because we finished our vacation with a view of a massive deer, the big pappa, who got up right infront of us. We were very blessed that we were allowed to stay in a place and a environment like this. Would we return? For sure, if we get the oppertunity to be in the same place, we would go back and to that house. Thank you very much for a lovely place for our holiday. p.s There is a place for glass recycling in the village (strontian) on the square, we found it on our drive home! A lot less difficult than we thought it would be (we come from the netherlands and such containers here are usually at very strategic places that are hard to guess) p.p.s If you want to go geochaching, there are two boxes close by, for the one behind the house, don't climb up behind the house unless you want to walk in mud, there is a path just down the road.

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.

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.
