    “Fantastic cottage in a lovely location.”

    It is kitted out with pretty much eveything you could need and was immaculate when we arrived. Nightly visits from pine martens and badgers on the porch looking for food. They are not noisy and just go on their way if no food is out, we chose to give them something as the kids loved seeing them a couple of feet away as they can be seen through the patio doors of the lounge and seem unbothered by an audience! It is very peaceful, little background noise at any time other than occasional ...

    It is kitted out with pretty much eveything you could need and was immaculate when we arrived. Nightly visits from pine martens and badgers on the porch looking for food. They are not noisy and just go on their way if no food is out, we chose to give them something as the kids loved seeing them a couple of feet away as they can be seen through the patio doors of the lounge and seem unbothered by an audience! It is very peaceful, little background noise at any time other than occasional vehicles. Walks down to the beach and along the road yield some amazing views of the surrounding mountains, Eilean Donan castle can be seen from that side, nicely lit up at night. Reaching the cottage is done via a 5 mile stretch of single track road that winds around the loch, there are plenty of passing places but it requires an amount of care as it is lined with ditches and drops down to the beach and I don't imagine an easy recovery is possible! One thing to note - the online listing indicates a pub and shop within 4 miles, this is not the case, nearest pub is around 8 miles away on the other side of the loch and shop is part of a filling station at around 9 miles. This has a decent selection of items. For a bigger selection the Co-Op in Kyle of Localsh is good. It wasn't a huge issue but did catch us out in terms of expectations for ability to shop on arrival, if you are due to arrive quite late it is better to have some basics with you.

The property

This charming cottage nestles on a pretty hillside in the tiny village of Letterfearn, overlooking Loch Duich with views down the loch to the Five Sisters of Kintail.

The elevated situation of the cottage is enhanced by the addition of a full length covered veranda from which the spectacular location can be truly appreciated in all weathers.

With the spacious accommodation on one level there are two generously proportioned bedrooms, a twin room and a double room, which has doors leading out to its own private decked patio area.

The well-equipped and sunny kitchen/dining room is simply ideal for those who wish to enjoy home-cooked meals together and the cosy sitting room with the woodburning stove is to be enjoyed after a busy and active day.

With a mountainous backdrop and wonderful views to the front it will be hard to leave this perfect spot but close by there are an amazing amount of activities to be enjoyed.

A short drive around the loch takes you to the much photographed Eilean Donan Castle which boasts a good restaurant and shop and the castle is open to the public for much of the year and well worth a visit.

If castles interest you then cross the bridge to Skye and incorporate a visit to Dunvegan Castle during your tour around the magical island.

For a more adventurous drive follow the hill road over Mam Ratagan and into the village of Glenelg.

The road itself is a popular attraction with great viewpoints and during the summer months a small ferry crosses the Sound of Sleat to Skye which is a special crossing and perhaps more enjoyable than taking the bridge.

A wonderful unspoilt area and a charming cottage to ensure a great holiday.
