Description

Explore the Highlands from this unique, elevated, cruck-frame strawbale house with southerly views over Loch Sunart and a hot tub on the large deck.

This unique, eco-friendly strawbale house has incredible views from its elevated position and is as spectacular as many featured on TV’s ‘Grand Designs’. Boasting a Green Tourism Gold Award, and facing due south with commanding views over Loch Sunart and the Morvern hills beyond, this detached property offers a huge upstairs with an arched roof and open plan kitchen, ?dining and living areas. It has floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors at the southern end which lead out onto the balcony where there is a small table and chairs for you to enjoy your morning coffee. A spiral staircase leads to the large lower deck with the hot tub, dining and sitting areas with a chiminea. Enjoy walks through the historic Ariundle oak woods, a temperate rainforest, and discover the old lead mines which are close by.
The rest of the peninsula has much to offer, including a number of ’Corbett’ mountains, the stunning Loch Sunart, Ardnamurchan Lighthouse at the most westerly tip of the British Isles and the Ardmamurchan Distillery. There are pristine, sandy beaches along the coast, including Sanna Bay with its impressive white sand dunes and views across to Muck, Eigg and Rum. There is an abundance of wildlife, seabirds, seals, otters, deer, pine martens, as well as dolphin/whale watching and the Natural History Visitor Centre. It is possible to rent mountain bikes in the village and go for local kayak trips. You can also enjoy day trips to Glencoe and Ben Nevis (with skiing possible at each), and fans of Harry Potter can take the ’Jacobite Express’ steam train from Fort William to Mallaig, see the Glenfinnan Viaduct and so much more. This peaceful and tranquil place offers a truly ‘get away from it all’ experience and the views will amaze you - so come and relax. The local beach is less than ½ mile away and the stunning sandy coves at Ardtoe just a 12 mile drive. Shops, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our family holiday at Jill Strawbale House. From the minute we arrived we were made to feel very welcome by Justine and the first view was breathtakingly beautiful. Hopefully we will have the chance to return here in the near future.

    As a base for exploring Ardnamurchan in style "Jill" is pretty much unparalleled. The location and view are stunning, the facilities first rate and Robert was the perfect host.

    We have had the best holiday yet, every year we go somewhere different but all being well we will be booking Jill again for next year. The house is amazing and the view is to die for! We spotted Red Deer, Golden Eagles and Pine Martin all from the living room window. There is so much to do in the area if you want to explore, if not Jill is perfect for relaxing in and the view from the hot tub is superb. Highly recommend and can't wait to return!

    Remote retreat in a spectacular part of the country. Fabulous open living space- light, bright and welcoming. Great balconies- we all enjoyed the outdoor hot tub and chimenea with darkest of dark skies at night. Eco-friendly with all the comforts and mod-cons for a great holiday.
