Description

Victorian coach house in sunny, secluded location, with wood burning stove, hill walking, fly fishing and sailing all close by.

" In a land steeped in legends of the Bonnie Prince – close to Moidart’s sandy shores..."

Where a tree-lined glen opens out onto Loch Moidart and in countryside steeped with tales of Bonnie Prince Charlie, these fine properties stand upon the Kinlochmoidart Estate, within half a mile of the coast and 4 miles from the beach at Glenuig. The Scottish Baronial mansion of Kinlochmoidart House, occupies a marvellous position amidst some of Scotland’s most magnificent West Country scenery. It has been sensitively formed into three residences; two are careful conversions of an extensive service wing, while the main house (part of which is still the owners’ home) is a substantial property laid out over three floors and forming the middle portion of the building. The remaining three properties presented here are separately set in secluded locations within the vast grounds, comprising extensive shared gardens and the surrounding 2,000 acre estate grounds, which grant opportunities for excellent hill walking and fine varied fishing (fly fishing is available by arrangement). Very comfortably furnished, cosily heated and well-equipped throughout, each provides the perfect holiday retreat from which to enjoy an abundance of interests and scenic splendour with which this area is blessed at all times of the year.
Designed by William Leiper in 1884, Kinlochmoidart House is one of the finest examples of his work. It features a superb Art Movement interior – tilings, wallpapers, paint work, panelling and many other intricate architectural features have been painstakingly restored and represented, under strict architectural guidance, to return it to its former splendour. It occupies the site of a house which was once the resting place of Prince Charles Edward Stuart during the 1745 Jacobite Revolution – a connection commemorated in a nearby meadow, where seven beech trees symbolise the Seven Men of Moidart, the sum total of the army which he brought from France.
Just a short walk away from the house lies Loch Moidart, where vast expanses of sand are thrown up by the sea at low tide. At the seaward end of this beautiful inlet, sit the ancient ruins of 14th-century clan castle of Tioram (once the stronghold of the Lord of the Isles), providing a focal point for gloriously scenic views. Between nearby Loch Shiel and Loch Sunart, a trail leads through the Ariundle Oakwoods Nature Reserve – a haven for wildlife – whilst southwards, the coast is punctuated by bays of white sand excellent for fishing and shell-collecting, or admiring the views over hill, loch and sea from horse back. Fort William, gateway to Ben Nevis, is a scenic drive away, and the Western Isles, Skye and Ardnamurchan are all accessible. Sailing at Acharade, 6 miles. Golf 30 minutes’ drive. Inn at Glenuig, 4 miles. Shops 7 miles.

In a sunny and secluded location, this stone-built, Victorian coach house with its own garden offers attractive, comfortable accommodation. Large sitting/dining room with pine cladding, wood-burning stove and modern fitted kitchen area. Double bedroom (5ft bed). Bathroom with toilet. Steep open-tread stairs from sitting-room to small galleried twin bedroom with very low (6ft) ceiling (unsuitable for small children).

    We stayed for a week after walking the Great Glen. It is very remote which is superb. Nearest shop (a community shop with very limited choice) is at least 15 minutes away by car. We did not use the upstairs as it was just the two of us and our dog. The log burner kept the place suitably warm and we were provided with a huge log basket which lasted the week. The downstairs bedroom has a walk in wardrobe (cupboard) with plenty of shelves and the electricity meter. The bed was very comfortable with a warm duvet. The main room is very large and contains the kitchen which has a good range of pans, cutlery, toaster, cafetiere, etc There is a small library of books and a freeview TV. Phone signal is poor (which was good) but can be obtained by standing under the power lines outside.

    This is a wonderful location, and going in the winter made it more special. The Coach house is idiosyncratic and great if you like those kind of things. It was not very clean and if you are a clean freak you may have had issues with the dust cobwebs and some of the furniture. But the beds and towels and bathroom were clean and my son and i were perfectly happy. When we arrived there was no sign of the owner and we needed to find our accommodation and make ourselves at home. It was very cold and the house had not been "aired" or the heating turned on - everything was very cold and we turned on everything we could find and built a fire - having travelled 8 hours. When we saw her the next day she asked us if we had"read the meter" - we hadn't and later we found she had been in the house and done so - when we left we were told electricity was extra - and that they had no card machine - we needed to turn out our pockets and get the £30 together to pay for the electricity - as we had paid a good price for the accommodation - out of season - this left a bitter taste in the mouth.

    A great little place and lots of space for 4. The log burner is awesome in cold weather and will heat the whole place for you. I have never been a fan of Economy 7/electric heating but there are few other options available in this location. Budget about £25-30 a week in the winter for heating on top of the cost of your holiday. The grounds are stunning, and the avenue leading to the main house is really impressive. The setting of the house is very much like 'Skyfall'. A large, open, flat area surrounded by hills/mountains, and then suddenly this tremendous house appears. Mrs Stewart is very friendly, her dogs even more so. And the pedigree chickens...a sight to behold. We will definitely be back

    Loved the cottage. Perfect for two, plenty of space but cosy. Lots of hot water to enjoy the bath. Had everything that we needed in the kitchen. The bed was so comfy. Didn't really hear a thing from anyone else on the estate the whole time, even though the lovely big house is close by. Saw red squirrels every day, and deer from the cottage. Absolutely great location for what we wanted... canoeing, cycling, visiting the small isles. A bit far away from the pub so spent the evenings in, but again the cottage was great.

    The outside view does not do the inside justice. This is a superb location, (we saw a red squirrel from the back door and red deer within a quarter mile of the cottage).You won't need a car to find plenty of walking. The shop at Acharacle has been modernised, extended, and restocked, and now has enough of the necessities of life to make shopping trips to Fort William or Mallaig an option rather than a necessity. The inside of the cottage is pleasant and comfortable particularly when the fire is lit, (logs and kindling included).
