Relax in luxury in this beautiful house with picture windows overlooking the stunning loch and mountains beyond.

Carron House is a superb, contemporary, detached house set in its own generous gardens and enjoying stunning loch and mountain views. Situated in the quiet hamlet of Slumbay, just over a mile from the pretty West Highland village of Lochcarron, Carron House provides a high standard of accommodation in a beautiful and unspoilt setting.
The main entrance opens onto a spacious hall/dining area with solid wood flooring, high ceilings and glass panels that drink in the light. French doors open onto the patio area with the garden beyond. The living room on the ground floor has a welcoming wood burner and one of the sofas can be used as a sofa bed for two extra visitors, if required and there is a spacious shower room on the ground floor. A wide staircase leads up to the first floor with the landing area doubling as a second living room with comfortable seating and a large picture window that maximises the wonderful views across Loch Carron to the hills beyond. There are three attractively presented bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom and double basins, and a further separate family shower room.
The nearby village of Lochcarron is situated right on the shores of the loch, surrounded by the spectacular hills and mountains of Wester Ross. The village has good facilities, with a number of pubs, cafés and shops, as well as a golf course which is open to visitors. The area is also a haven for wildlife where otters and seals can be seen along the shore-line and dolphins have been spotted in the bay. The surrounding area provides some of most scenic locations to be found anywhere in the Highlands. A trip to Applecross via the highest pass road in Britain is a must. Known as the ’Pass of the Cattle’ and rising to over 2,000 feet, it affords amazing views across The Minch to the isles of Raasay and Skye. A paradise for lovers of the great outdoors, there are unlimited sporting opportunities such as climbing, hill-walking, fishing, canoeing, diving, sailing and cycling, all available locally.

    Carron House is an excellent property for a family with a spacious layout and great views. Despite the poor weather we had a good weeks holiday and the house was a large reason for this.

    Missing basics like loo rolls, logs for woodburner, woodburner tools. Dog hairs quite noticeable. Prior warning of the roadworks along the Loch would have been nice as this had a major impact on our plans while there.

    A fantastic location and property. Reading other reviews regarding the DVD player, it works as long as you change the HDMI cable from the FreeSat box however there is no remote for the DVD.

    We were three generations sharing the house, and we thoroughly enjoyed the week due plenty of space, a high degree of comfort and a great location. The weather unusually for the NW Highlands was on our side!

    Lovely holiday at Loch Carron, the house was perfect for us & Max the dog. The house was comfortable with wonderful views. Nice places to visit & places to eat in the village. Hope to be back in the future.

    Whilst we enjoyed our stay at Carron House we had a few issues. - There was no remote control for the DVD player and it was missing the necessary cables to be plugged in to the TV. - Instructions for appliances weren’t easy to find. A quick summary in the house file would have been helpful. - The noise of the boiler firing up in the middle of the night woke us every night. - The kitchen tap was broken and had been inexpertly fixed. - There was a lot of food in the cupboards which seemed to belong to the owners rather than having been left behind by previous guests. - The property wasn’t as clean as it could have been. We did enjoy our stay and the house was very comfortable. Having a stayed in a lot of self catering properties in the past, for the money that we paid, we just expected a little more.
