Strathcarron

Situated at the head of Loch Carron in Scotland’s most beautiful western Highlands, Strathcarron is an excellent base for exploring Wester Ross and its spectacular highland scenery. The village itself is small, although it does have a railway station, on the picturesque Kyle of Lochalsh Line, which also houses a Visitor Information Centre and a Post Office.

The surrounding countryside provides magnificent views of the mountain scenery, making this an ideal base for photographers and artists as well as hill walkers, birdwatchers and anglers. Strathcarron is also an excellent place from which to explore the West Highlands including Plockton, famous as the setting for the TV series Hamish Macbeth, the Applecross peninsula and the Isle of Skye.

The way to the Applecross peninsula takes you through the Pass of the Cattle, which is one of the highest roads in the UK, reaching 2,053 feet, and the views from here are simply spectacular, like so much of the scenery of the Western Highlands.

The Skye Bridge, which was opened in 1995, connects the Kyle of Lochalsh with the Isle of Skye. The bridge has been toll free since 2004, and many visitors cross to explore the island each year.

The Torridon Hills lie to the northwest of Strathcarron and are a popular destination for climbers and walkers. The white sand beaches of Gairloch attract many visitors, especially in the summer months, and there are also lovely gardens to be visited in the area, perhaps the most famous being the Inverewe Gardens, where you will find exotic plants growing because of the proximity of the Gulf Stream.

There is something for everyone in the Scottish Highlands, so search for cottages in Strathcarron for a holiday you won’t forget.

    The Cottage is a charming single storey white-washed stone cottage situated in the quiet hamlet of Achintee in the heart of Wester Ross. Surrounded by hills, the Loch Carron sea loch and open countryside and enjoying quiet seclusion in its well established cottage gardens, it provides an ideal base for two. Originally a traditional crofter’s cottage, it has (in 2015) undergone complete refurbishment throughout with a brand new kitchen, the latest appliances, free Wi-Fi and furnished to a very high standard. The Cottage has been attractively restored and renovated, whilst retaining a wealth of original features, such as an original open fireplace and  exposed stone wall in the lounge, stripped pine doors and beautiful wood-lined tongue and groove panelling in the bedroom. There is a large farmhouse-style kitchen/dining room and a modern bathroom. The Cottage looks out across the gardens to the hills and mountains beyond with nearby views of Loch Carron.

    The small village of Strathcarron is approximately ¼ mile away and within easy walking distance. The small railway station is a halt on the Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh railway route; voted as one of the most scenic railway lines in the world. The surrounding area is renowned for its magnificent landscapes, incorporating mountains, rivers, lochs and sea. A paradise for lovers of the great outdoors, it offers unlimited sporting opportunities: climbing, hill-walking, fishing, canoeing, diving, sailing and mountain-biking are all available close by. There are some wonderful walks direct from the property, with miles of hills, riverside and forestry to explore, either on foot or by bike.

    The nearby village of Lochcarron is particularly charming. Set right on the shores of the loch, surrounded by the spectacular hills and mountains of Wester Ross, Lochcarron is bounded by the sea-loch on one side and attractive cottages and houses that straddle the main street on the other. There are a number of pubs, cafes and shops here, as well as a golf course open to visitors which has a fantastic 9 hole golf course (12 tees) situated right on the banks of the loch with stunning views, open all year round. This club is over a hundred years old and is one of the most beautiful spots in the highlands, with a short but demanding course for all levels. A visit to the Carron pottery and restaurant, less than a mile away, is a must with fantastic crafts and renown food (open year round), with the seafood bar at Kishorn another culinary favourite which has won countless awards for its local sustainably sourced fresh seafood, 13 miles.
