Hot Tub

For those seeking the ultimate getaway, look no further than Jack Strawbale House. Offering spell-binding views, in this beautiful two bedroom Scandinavian-inspired, cruck-framed lodge.

This modern property with a ’minimalist’ style, emanates charm and style but perhaps one of the most endearing features, is a rare chance to offer those who are unable to climb a hill themselves. This property is the ’perfect perch’ to enjoy the breath-taking views afforded at this elevation, with disabled facilities and wheelchair access throughout. To fully appreciate these spectacular views, expansive balconies can be found on each level, as well as floor to ceiling windows which are all south facing and make the most of the daylight. The lower deck includes a sheltered hot tub, an outside seating area, a BBQ, and a chimenea (with loungers) to sit around. Guests won’t feel the need to go far, with Loch Sunart and the Morvern Hills acting as a backdrop, whilst enjoying some al fresco dining, or in the evenings a spot of stargazing under a clear sky.
The spiral staircase leading up to the first-floor balcony which is adjoined to the extensive open plan living space which occupies the entire first floor. This area is the perfect place to entertain, with a large kitchen with lowered worktop for accessibility, a selection of board games and even a telescope to study the stars or local wildlife. Both stairs and a wheelchair lift provide access between floors. There are two spacious en-suite bedrooms downstairs with the master bedroom specially fitted with a walk-in shower, a remote-control toilet and a hoist for disabled guests to manoeuvre comfortably. The second bedroom can be either twin or kingsize and has a wet room bathroom complete with a walk-in shower and separate bath. This eco-friendly property, powered by a 10kw hydro and heated with a ground-source heat pump, truly has something for everyone. The design to be inclusive for all shines through with the attention to detail the owners have given in all aspects. Those who come and stay at Jack Strawbale House will have a wonderful escape and most definitely come back feeling refreshed after retreating to this Highland hideaway. Beach 12 miles. Shops, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.

Fantastic one week break for my wife’s birthday. Beautiful setting with great facilities. Everything needed for a self catering break. Daily visit of pine martens to the balcony was a highlight. Overall would thoroughly recommend and I would happily come back again.

We had a fabulous holiday in Jack Strawbale House, it was great for a relaxing break, it had everything you could wish for and more, in a very beautiful location. Great for exploring the west coast and trips to Islands such as Mull. Steam Train Fort William to Mallaig was very good.

An amazing property with stunning views. Designed with the environment at heart and lots of attention to detail. Ideally positioned for exploring the local area. We went on some lovely walks, visited some stunning beaches and had a great time spotting the local wildlife. Our visit was just before the start of the main holiday season so local amenities were a little limited, however “Jack” is very well equipped, so great for self catering. A property we would definitely return to.
