The Experience

Stunning views from every angle; majestic mountains, (nearly the highest in the UK) including nine Munros; red deer; sea eagles; otters; seals; the occasional dolphin; spectacular light. Nature at its very best.

A challenging climb or a gentle amble along an easy path, go at your own pace and do as much or as little as you like. There are serious outdoor pursuits for the very active, den-building in the woods and beachcombing for the kids, kayaking, boat trips, fishing, stalking, tennis and glorious walking for all.

And, if the weather is disappointing, curl up in front of a roaring log fire with a single malt in hand, read, catch up on films and enjoy the experience. Perfect relaxation.

The house has a large selection of books, DVDs, board games and a wonderful antique chess table for serious challenges.
