About the property

Roddy's Cottage is a charming cottage, nestled in the scenic coastal village of Glenelg, Scotland.

Boasting spectacular views of both the sea and nearby mountains, this holiday cottage provides an ideal base for families and groups of six to explore the Lochalsh Highlands.

Enter into the welcoming and well-thought out kitchen and discover an abundance of handy appliances such as a fridge and an electric cooker and hob, where you can cook up a storm for friends and family to enjoy around the spacious dining table located in the sitting room.

After indulging in a delicious meal, retire to the traditional sofa or cosy armchair and lose yourself in an enthralling book or captivating movie on the TV with the entertaining Sky package.

Keep warm under the duvet in the spacious double bedroom with delightful oak furniture and ample space for storing your belongings or escape the excitement to the snug twin bedroom, where you can lay your head to rest after an action-packed day exploring the local area.

The final bedroom is home to a charming bunk bed, perfect for the children or those who may want to pair up with a pal, decorated with neutral tones and crisp white bedding.

After a day of walking, why not enjoy a relaxing soak in the bathtub in the family bathroom, or choose a refreshing shower instead.

Make the most of the spacious front garden as you dine outdoors with a picnic on the lawn or delight in your evening meal alfresco as you watch the sun set on the beautiful mountains.

Spend your days on scenic hikes up Loch Duich View Point or exploring the historical 13th Century Eilean Donan Castle.

Enjoy the magnificent views as you travel to Plockton for a stroll along the tranquil Coral Beach, stopping off for a bite to eat at the Glenelg Inn and enjoying a quiet night indoors.

About the location


Shiel Bridge 9 miles.

Just ten miles from the main route to the Isle of Skye, the small coastal village of Glenelg lies on the shores of the Sound of Sleat, surrounded by scenery deemed magnificent even by West Highland standards. The glen has preserved its unspoilt beauty and sense of isolation, yet remains within easy reach of the more well-known centres of attraction in the area. Overlooking the Isle of Skye, it is situated on the route once used by drovers from Skye to get their cattle to the mainland, crossing over the narrow Kyle Rhea straits. A couple of miles from the village on the Arnisdale road you will find Sandaig bay, named "Camusfearna" by Gavin Maxwell in his novel Ring of Bright Water, and where there is a cairn for his beloved otter Edal. Glenelg also has the best preserved Pictish Brochs on mainland Scotland. The ruins of Bernera Barracks, an 18th Century garrison for English government troops, still stand next to the village.

Note: Max 4 adults and 2 children under 12.
