The property

Dornie 9 miles.

This is a wonderfully-located, semi-detached cottage situated close to the shores of Loch Duich in the small hamlet of Ratagan amongst stunning Highland scenery.

Surrounded by the impressive Five Sisters of Kintail mountains and with beautiful loch views, this cottage is perfect for a family or group of friends who wish to spend time together in one of the most beautiful parts of Scotland.

This cottage is very comfortable, cosy and well equipped and has three nicely-presented bedrooms on the upper floor, one benefiting from an en-suite shower room.

There is also a family shower room on the upper floor and a useful ground floor cloakroom.

The sitting room comes with a welcoming multi-fuel stove which heats the radiators throughout the house and is ideal to ensure cosy nights in after an active day exploring.

The smart kitchen/dining room is well equipped and a door gives access to the private rear garden and seating area where a pre-dinner glass of wine can certainly be enjoyed.

The shoreline of Loch Duich is just seconds away and perfect for a gentle after dinner stroll.

Ratagan is ideally situated for visitors who simply want to lace up their walking boots and explore this fabulous unspoilt area by foot.

Guests should follow the single-track, lochside road leading to the neighbouring village of Letterfearn, where they can see otters, seals and deer along with a variety of birdlife.

Just a short drive away is the world famous Eilean Donan Castle and visitor cente, and after a tour, why not continue west and cross the bridge to the magical Isle of Skye?

For horse lovers, there is pony trekking available nearby on native Highland ponies, and from the nearby village of Plockton, boat trips will take you out to see the seals with the guarantee of money back if you don’t spot any!

This cottage sits in a spectacular area, ensuring a memorable holiday for all.

About the location

DORNIE

Kyle of Lochalsh 9 miles.

The picturesque village of Dornie sits amidst the stunning West Highland countryside, just nine miles from the bustling village of Kyle of Lochalsh. The village itself, a walker’s paradise, offers good amenities including a village shop, a local pub and numerous walking and cycling opportunities, with stunning views of the coastline and mountainous regions beyond to be enjoyed. Nearby Kyle of Lochalsh, known as the gateway to the Isle of Skye, offers a range of shops, hotels and restaurants and boasts a busy harbour that plays host to a variety of cargo, fishing and occasional passenger vessels. Nearby Eilean Donan Castle, one of Scotland's most famous and popular sights, is perched at the end of a stone causeway on the shores of Loch Duich, whilst further south is the Glenelg Peninsula, a tranquil backwater, which is beautiful, remote and relatively undiscovered. An easy drive north of Kyle is the charming village of Plockton, famous for its palm trees, yacht-filled bay and Highland cattle which wander the streets! Alternatively, cross the Skye Bridge to Skye itself and explore all that the mystical Isle has to offer.
