Overlooked by mountains and surrounded by the crashing sea, this impressive holiday home offers enchanting views and a truly unique location within the Scottish Highlands.

Secluded above a beach and hidden amongst pine trees, this stunning property has been designed to blend in perfectly with the Lochailort landscape, known for its majestic mountains, tumbling sea, and abundance of wildlife. Discover a taste of the Highlands with a visit to Glenuig just 2 miles away, a bustling village with a thriving community hall that hosts regular musical events. It is also home to a fantastic smokehouse, famous for locally sourced produce and mouth-watering delicacies.

Inside is a masterpiece of design, characterised by high ceilings, contemporary lighting and wooden details. The floor-to-ceiling windows fill the open-plan living space with natural light, offering spectacular views of the surrounding rocky landscape. It's the perfect backdrop for enjoying a leisurely breakfast at the dining table, or step outside onto the decked patio to take in the sounds of the sea. Chillier evenings are made cosy by the crackling wood burner, curling up on the sofa with a glass of something delicious. Off from the lounge is the master bedroom complete with an en-suite double shower room, wood burner and private balcony. The twin bedroom and double bedroom are also on this floor, both sharing a large bathroom with an irresistible double-ended bath, and separate shower room. A handy utility room can also be found downstairs. Upstairs, the second lounge offers a comfortable retreat for curling up in front of a film. The adjacent family room features two sets of cabin-style bunk beds ideal for younger guests to enjoy the ultimate sleepover, just don't forget the midnight feast!

Outside, the decked patio leads to open grounds and the shoreline, where you can find adventure from the comfort of your doorstep. Gather around the fire pit to toast marshmallows under the stars, or relax in the hot tub after a scrumptious BBQ.

This is a superbly located house close to the wild sea shore. It is a low, organic wood-and-glass build which respects its environment and yet has airiness, light and high space.

Fantastic gateway for out door types and adventure seekers. The location of the house is breathtaking. The only problem was the hot tub had broken down, but we were blessed with the weather that enabled us to visit the beautiful beaches with our young granddaughters. Plenty of lovely restaurants in the area. Minch Adventures adventure boat trips isRead more a must. Billy and his wife were amazing hosts taking us around the islands, giving us a history of the area and pointing out the wildlife, fishing and visiting the most remote pub for lunch. We will definitely return. Take the midge spray! Hide

Great cottage on sea front and great wildlife around, due to hot weather which was great outside, we couldn't get the cottage to cool down even after 3 days, but still a great holiday we had, thanks.

This lovely house is in a beautiful setting, remote enough for peace and tranquility but close enough to a local convenience store at Glenuig or Arisaig.

The hot tub wasn't prepared so needed filling and heating but was greatly enjoyed eventually! ( Some extra towels would be helpful for use with the hot tub and /or more washing powder and dishwasher tablets/ tea towels ). Despite the hiccups - which could have happened anytime- we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, hence the 5 stars! Hide
