The property

Glenuig 3 miles.

This very special detached cottage is situated in the small community of Roshven, in the grounds of a former estate, and close to the village of Glenuig in the West Highlands.

With wonderful uninterrupted views of the sea and the rugged hills of Ardnish Peninsula beyond, this cottage makes a superb holiday home for families and friends who want to enjoy this stunning part of the country together.

The cottage has direct access down to a lovely beach and the crystal clear water of the sea loch which seals and otters frequent.

There is another sandy beach a few minutes' walk along the shore.

This is a great location for all ages!

The cottage is situated at the end of a track and has a large garden with front lawn, woods and a stream to the side.

The entrance hall doubles up as a boot room, a really handy place to leave outdoor clothes.

The fitted kitchen is well equipped and leads through to the impressively spacious open plan dining room with a sitting area, and with windows providing uninterrupted views to the sea and beyond.

The upper floor has three comfortable bedrooms, all with stunning sea views, one benefitting from en-suite facilities, and a family-size bathroom.

From the dining room, French doors lead out onto a large balcony area and this is a special place for a morning coffee or a quiet read.

There are great opportunities to see the local wildlife, including pine martins, red deer, wildcats and many species of birds.

There are fantastic walking opportunities from the front door all around the extensive grounds of the former estate, including on the small hills, from where amazing views can be seen.

The cottage also has direct access to the rugged hills of Moidart with three Corbett Hills in easy reach, including Roshven Hill rising 882 metres almost straight up from the sea.

From this charming holiday home, there’s direct access to a number of lovely sandy and pebbly beaches with views of the small isles.

As well as coastal walks, there’s also countless other walking opportunities in the immediate area, both strenuous and easy, and you will find lots of information about walks in the area in the cottage.

Close by are the villages of Glenuig and Lochailort, both with their own Inns providing good food made from local produce and friendly bars should you decide on dining out in the evenings.

The area has much to offer visitors, so why not follow the famous road to the Isles all the way to Mallaig on the west coast where you can cross over the sea to Skye?

From nearby Arisaig or from Mallaig there are also day trips to some of the smaller isles such as Eigg, Rum or Muck.

Alternatively, visit nearby Glenfinnan with its magnificent monument and history.

For the more active, the area has some excellent walking opportunities and the nearby Glenuig Inn provides sea-kayaking guided trips.

So much to see and do, a great location and a great holiday cottage!

About the location

GLENUIG

Lochailort 8 miles; Acharacle 11 miles.

Glenuig village looks west across the Sound of Arisaig towards the small Isles of Eigg, Muck, Rum and Canna. The Sound of Arisaig is a Marine Conservation Area, home to maerl (a type of seaweed only found in unpolluted waters) and other fascinating flora and fauna. A tiny community of just over thirty folk, Glenuig is located in the Parish of Moidart in remote West Lochaber - including the neighbouring settlements of Samalaman and Alt Ruadh, Glenuig contains 21 houses in permanent occupation plus four holiday homes. Perfect to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
