Luxury Self Catering Cottage situated on the coast road between Shieldaig and Applecross
Craig Cottage is a luxury self-catering holiday cottage situated near the small township of Kenmore on the beautiful Applecross Peninsula in the north west of Scotland. The cottage has been built to a high specification and furnished to an exacting standard.
Craig cottage nestles on the side of a hill overlooking the bay at Kenmore with views across Loch Torridon towards Diabaig and Beinn Alligin. The cottage is situated on the site of the original Tigh a’ Chracaich (house on craggy hill), which in years bygone was used as the winter grazing house for the shepherd to Kenmore common grazings.
Our Visitors say "this is not a holiday cottage, it's a home from home".
The area is of interest to geologists, botanists and ornithologists. It is ideal for leisure activities – mountaineering, hill-walking, fishing, sailing, canoeing and diving. If your wish is to have a romantic escape or just to unwind and take life at a slower pace, relax and enjoy the views, chill out on the decking reading or just watching the world go by.
This is an area set in dramatic scenery, dominated by mountains, lochs and sea, well noted for its exceptional beauty, peace and tranquillity. What better way to end your day than to sit out on the decking with your glass of wine in hand, watching the herons at work, the otters, seals and occasionally dolphin or porpoise at play in the bay.
If you are sea food lovers, then this is the place for you, as locally caught crab, langoustines, squat lobster & lobster are available in the Applecross Inn, The Potting Shed in the grounds of Applecross house and the Shieldaig Hotel, all within driving distance.
