Scottish Country Cottages

From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


Character cottage in secluded setting on tree lined avenue, just for couples, take the trail to Ariundle Oakwoods Nature Reserve.

" 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.

Reached along a tree-lined avenue, this cottage of comfort and character, originally the dairy for the estate, enjoys a secluded setting with its own garden. Entrance porch to modern kitchen/dining room with pine furnishings. Small sitting room with open fire. Double bedroom. Shower room with toilet.

    Brilliant location - could do with a few more bits and bobs in the kitchen (mugs especially) and we were a bit concerned that the windows could be opened from the outside. Very comfortable, will definately be back

    Although we were only there for the weekend, we really enjoyed our stay. The surrounding countryside was stunning. The owner was very helpful and our dog enjoyed meeting the other dogs. The house was warm and the log fire was wonderful for the evening.

    Lovely cottage. After a day out walking it was wonderful to come home to. Great area for walks and wildlife. We saw red deer and red squirrels from the cottage. It is a wonderful area to explore and also there are many places to visit just a short drive away. We enjoyed the cruise on Loch Shiel from Glenfinnan, seeing Castle Tioram near Dorlinn, had great views of Otter at the Garbh Eilean wildlife hide on Loch Sunart and visiting Eigg and Muck on a boat trip from Arisaig. Excellent holiday.
