    “A really lovely cottage and we were very happy with the excellent location for walking in the hills.”

    The cottage was warm, nicely renovated and well equiped. There was a good selection of dvds however it would be better if the television was also available. We're not there to watch tv but on the darker nights it's nice to have the option. We had very heavy rain which came down and leaked heavily onto the kitchen woodburner. It didn't cause any problem at all but may worry some guests. Overall we were very happy with our holiday and would visit again.

The property

Dornie 3 miles.

This pretty picture postcard cottage, nestling on a hillside in a stunning highland glen at Sallachy, is just three miles from the small former fishing village of Dornie, in the western Ross-shire Highlands.

Creag Mhor Cottage is a traditional cottage that has both character and comfort.

The bedrooms are on the upper floor and the modern bathroom is at ground floor level.

The ground floor is open plan with the kitchen/diner at one end and the sitting area at the other with both benefiting from large woodburning stoves, ideal for cosy nights in.

A private garden surrounds the cottage and from here there are lovely views towards Loch Long and the surrounding mountains.

The village of Dornie is a short drive along the winding loch side road, and here you can buy your groceries and visit the local pub for a pint.

Dornie is also home to the world famous Eilean Donan Castle which is well worth a visit and the visitor centre not only sells gifts but also has a very good cafe.

The bustling village of Kyle of Lochalsh is some 11 miles west and provides enhanced shopping opportunities.

The area is exceptionally pretty and attracts many visitors throughout the year and this cottage makes an excellent base for exploring the west coast villages and crossing the bridge to the magical Isle of Skye for a lovely day out.

The area is perfect for walkers and wildlife lovers and this welcoming ‘wee’ cottage will tick all the boxes to ensure a great highland adventure.

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.
