The property

Balmacara 8.8 miles.

Tucked away on the rural outskirts of Achmore, a quaint village just a short drive north of neighbouring Balmacara in the Scottish Highlands, lies the charming, two-bedroom holiday lodge or Dailfearn Chalet.

Boasting off-road parking for two cars, delightful wooden interiors and exteriors, and a wonderful, woodland setting located a brief walk from the crisp waters of Loch Carron, this tasteful property makes a perfect base for a family or group of sharing friends seeking a refreshing escape within the beautiful Scottish countryside.

Park up, unpack, and make yourself at home in your lovely new lodgings, where a well-equipped kitchen awaits the chosen chef with all the appliances required to prepare delicious, home-cooked meals.

Savour your feasts as a group around the dining table, before you head to the sitting room to kick back and relax as you enjoy a DVD on the TV whilst the space is kept warm by the crackling embers of a woodburning stove.

When day rolls into night, head for a rejuvenating shower on your way to settling down for a much-needed rest in either an inviting double or twin bedroom.

After you've finished your morning coffee in the calm setting of the outdoor decking as you soak in views of the surrounding woodland, head out and explore what the local area has to offer.

A brief car trip south will bring you to Balmacara, where you can stock up on essentials at the SPAR before you sit down to refuel with a hearty lunch at the Balmacara Hotel.

A short car journey from your new home will take you to a variety of noteworthy attractions and landmarks, including the Loch Carron Viewpoint that enjoys terrific views of the eponymous lake, the gorgeous grounds of the Attadale Gardens, and tranquil hiking trails of Otter Hide, where visitors can soak in views of both Loch Alsh and Loch Hourn.

Enjoy an unforgettable retreat in Scotland by booking a stay at Dailfearn Chalet.
