The property

This thoughtfully decorated cottage lies close to the centre of Strontian, next to Loch Sunart in the West Highlands of Scotland.

The surrounding area boasts enchanting woodlands and unspoilt countryside, making Horlsey Cottage a superb base for families looking to get their outdoor fix.

After a day of traversing wild walking routes, curl up in the sitting room, presented with chesterfield seating in front of a woodburning stove and a TV so you’ll have no trouble easing into your evening.

Beyond here is the kitchen, amply equipped with all the necessities for preparing a home-cooked meal before gathering the family around the dining table to tuck into a sumptuous supper.

As the evening draws to a close, choose between the double and twin bedroom, served by two boutique style bathrooms, one with a roll-top feature bath and the other with a bath and shower over, enhanced with contemporary fixtures and tiling.

Take a refreshing drink outside and sit within the spacious garden, offering plenty of room to enjoy family games whilst your canine companion stretches their legs.

The village of Strontian offers a selection of hotels with fine dining and bar menus, along with a couple of shops for picking up any forgotten essentials.

Walkers will be in awe of the surrounding area; meander along the village paths leading up to the open moor and dropping down to the river valley or take a stroll along the idyllic shoreline where you can spot otters and sea eagles!

With Loch Sunart on the doorstep, guests can bring a small boat and take advantage of the local slipway and enjoy some watersports.

If you fancy a day by the coast then drive along the winding single track road to Sanna Bay, one of the most stunning beaches on the Ardnamurcha Peninsula, here you can lounge on sandy dunes, swim in turquoise waters, explore the rocky coves and look out for an array of coastal birds – it’s a great place to lose yourself.

With the Ariundle Oakwood National Nature Reserve within striking distance, Horsley Cottage provides a delightful base with plenty of outdoor opportunity in the Scottish Highlands.

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.
