  • “Rural Highland Escape, Stunning Views, Wildlife”

    Outstanding base for a true rural escape. We booked this Chalet, literally, as I was driving north from Glasgow so if you are looking for a last minute retreat then rest assured you will receive a prompt reply ...

    Outstanding base for a true rural escape. We booked this Chalet, literally, as I was driving north from Glasgow so if you are looking for a last minute retreat then rest assured you will receive a prompt reply. The facilities in the chalet are good. Plenty of hot water for the shower or bath and a good kitchen, well equipped and more than adequate to prepare proper meals. There is a washing machine and clothes-line to use (and a clothes rack if the weather is bad.) Tv with a wide selection of dvd is available but as you are looking out onto fantastic views I would take a book and enjoy the veranda seating area, keep binoculars handy for the wildlife that you may encounter - eagles, pine marten, squirrels, sea life. There is a very friendly local shop within walking distance. Nearest large supermarket is a 120 mile round trip so either shop in Fort William before arriving or eat out in the local pubs, hotel and cafes. The real test is whether I would recommend this place to a friend and if I would book again and the answer to both is yes. It is an isolated rural setting, fantastic starry nights and without the usual touristy attractions - go because you want the quiet, natural environment with a real tranquil experience.

The property

A pleasant wooden lodge in the Highland village of Kilchoan, Ardnamurchan in Scotland.

A small family wanting a relaxing, remote holiday would find this the perfect spot.

The Chalet is situated amongst beautiful countryside on the outskirts of Kilchoan village, with a few steps taking you up to the property.

Immediately you are welcomed with the warming open plan living area with wood-panelled walls giving the place a rustic, homely feel.

The sitting area comes with two comfortable sofas and a TV, there is no better place to sit and let your hair down in this secluded location, with the breath-taking views of the scenery over the Sound of Mull to accompany it.

The kitchen is compact yet surprisingly well-equipped, boasting all of the appliances you will need during your stay.

The bedrooms are cosy and comfortable.

The Chalet comes with an enclosed lawn, when the weather chirps up, sit out on the covered decking and just take in the phenomenal views on show.

The village of Kilchoan is pretty and secluded, offering quiet beaches as well as a village shop, post office, petrol station and local pub.The closest town with a range of amenities and activities is Tobermory, which is 30 minute ferry ride away, a popular choice with a lot of visitors to Kilchoan.

Tobermory, the principal town on the isle of Mull, is a pretty bustling town with a busy pier, museum and aquarium amongst its many attractions.

The Chalet at Ben Hiant is a warming little lodge in a simply amazing location.

About the location

KILCHOAN

Tobermory 7 miles (via ferry).

The pretty village of Kilchoan is the most westerly village in mainland Britain, situated on the stunning Ardnamurchan Peninsula and surrounded by magnificent mountains and breathtaking coastal views. The area close to Kilchoan offers a choice of quiet sandy beaches and an abundance of wildlife with eagles regularly spotted overhead. Until 1900 the village was only accessible by sea, but now access is via a single track road that leads through some of the most beautiful scenery in Scotland. The village has good local services including a shop, pub, restaurant and community centre. From Mingary Pier there is a regular ferry service across the Sound of Mull to Tobermory which gives the opportunity to explore the islands of Mull and Iona. There are wildlife excursions on land and sea and the new Ardnamurchan Distillery and Natural History Centre are added attractions. A short drive away is Ardnamurchan Point complete with its own lighthouse and visitor centre which is well worth a visit, or perhaps you simply want to sit on the glorious Sanna Beach and enjoy the views across the clear blue sea to the islands of Muck, Eigg and Rum?
