  • "Lovely location set amongst other similar lodges in an elevated position overlooking Loch Carron."

    Took a while to warm up, but after the first night we were lovely and cosy. Enjoyed sitting on the decking watching the sun go down. Living room was comfy and the information about local walks helpful. Kitchen could do with an update, but everything worked. Washer and dryer were so useful, thank you. Had night time visitors on the roof, never got to see them, but wondered if they were pine martens? Made quite a racket on the tin roof! We all enjoyed our stay and would come again. Thank you.

  • "We loved Roisin Dhu."

    It's ideally located in a peaceful spot. The lodge is cosy and warm with stunning views. It's so comfortable and well equipped with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. The owner's organised and straightforward approach was very much appreciated. Covid security has been carefully considered. Thank you, and we will return...

  • "Great cottage in a beautiful location - Beautiful wooden cottage in the middle of wildlife (saw loads of birds and deers behind the house)."

    It's very peaceful so exactly what we needed after a crazy COVID year! Strathcarron is beautiful and this is a perfect location to visit Wester Ross. We had wifi issue however the owner was very quick in replying and finding a solution for us. The only downside would be that the curtain are very thin so if you are a light sleeper you might wake up very early , especially over the summer.

  • "Very comfortable and relaxing holiday."

    The kids relaxed a bit as well. Lovely touch of a beautiful home made cake on arrival. Weather was great at the beginning and the end of the holiday. In the middle it was typical Scottish summer weather. The accommodation was clean and had been slightly upgraded since our first visit in summer 2017. Will definitely return.

    Very clean and comfortable. Great view over the Loch. Handy for local shops. Local roads can be challenging, but worth the effort to see such a fantastic country.

  • "Extremely good value for money considering the location, facilities and the cleanliness of the property."

    The owner kept in constant communication by email, making sure that we had a pleasant stay. The cottage has everything that's listed in the advert and much more. The kitchen for example has everything one needs to cook and serve most types of meals, for the listed number of guests (6), not just the obligatory pan and the couple of plates and cups you find in most other places. Electricity and heating was included in the price. Heating throughout the property was good, with no shortages of hot water at anytime during our weeklong stay. Surrounding areas have some of the best scenery in the UK. Applecross peninsula was breathtaking! All within driving distance or a long walk if one fancies! Overall, a really nice experience and we have no hesitation in recommending this cottage.

The property

This cosy, detached log cabin is situated in an elevated position near Lochcarron, where far-reaching loch and mountain views can be appreciated.

The log cabin has three good-sized bedrooms, a well-equipped kitchen and a large living/dining room where guests can relax at the end of a busy day.

A door from the sitting room gives easy access to the patio area which is a lovely spot from which to fully appreciate the stunning views.

The sloping garden is mainly lawned and is child friendly.

Lochcarron is an ideal location for visitors who enjoy walking and wildlife spotting, so make sure you never leave home without your camera!

Close to the amenities of this pretty coastal village, guests will appreciate the lovely walk down the brae to the village shop and other services.

For those who want to tour the magical west coast there are a handful of pretty villages and quiet beaches, as well as high towering mountains for those who are a bit more energetic.

A short drive away is the bustling village of Kyle of Lochalsh, providing enhanced shopping facilities.

Kyle is also the gateway to the Skye Bridge and this toll-free bridge gives easy access to the most famous of the Inner Hebridean Islands and is well worth a visit.

This is an area of magical beauty and at the end of a busy day, returning to your cosy log cabin is ideal.

About the location


Plockton 18.6 miles; Dornie 21 miles; Torridon 22 miles.

Lochcarron runs along the north eastern shoreline of Loch Carron, an area of wonderful unspoilt beauty surrounded by mountains. The village attracts many visitors and has good local services including hotels, shops and a petrol station. There is also a golf course that borders the shoreline of the loch and it is home to the famous Lochcarron of Scotland, the world’s leading manufacturers of tartan. From Lochcarron you can easily access the Applecross Peninsula by taking the famous Bealach na Ba mountain pass road, not the easiest of journeys but the views from this route are unforgettable and well worth the journey. The central location of the village means that access to such places as Skye, Plockton and Torridon is very easy.

Note: No children under the age of 5.
