lochcarron, wester ross

Glayva Cottage is located in the heart of the pretty village of Lochcarron, where most of the houses are traditional whitewashed fishing cottages located along the north shore of the tidal sea loch, Loch Carron.

In the village there is a hotel (two in the summer!), two well stocked local stores, a petrol station, a post office, an ATM, a two cafes and a bistro.

Glayva cottage is in the centre of the village and only a few hundred metres away from any of the main amenities. There is a lochside footpath along the length of the main village.

In the loch you may see dolphins, seals, porpoises and otters, with pine marten, deer, golden eagles and sea eagles often seen around the village itself.

In and around the village you could go fishing, golfing, walking (there are many easy walks in and around the village), climbing, wildlife spotting or diving. It is also possible to hire bicycles from Lochcarron garage. The village is also ideally located for touring the West Highlands and Skye or for just relaxing. The availability of local shops, pubs and restaurants means that you don't need to use the car every day.

For children, there's a small play park in the village, seal trips and beaches nearby! The restaurants in the village are child-friendly (subject to time of dining).

If you choose to explore, we're only about 20 miles from Applecross with its beaches and famous Inn. It is an easy drive of less than 30 minutes north to the pretty fishing village of Shieldaig and the hikers paradise of Torridon. Half an hour to the south is the stunning Eilean Donan Castle, the Skye Bridge and the beautiful village of Plockton - famed for seal trips, palm trees and Hamish MacBeth!

We're also right on the North Coast 500 which is a superb scenic touring route around the North of Scotland and Glayva would be a superb base for this.

Should you choose to 'let the train take the strain' there is a station three miles away in Strathcarron. The line from Strathcarron takes you to either Inverness or the Skye Bridge at Kyle of Lochalsh. Either way, it's a stunning journey and has been voted one of the top ten railway journeys in the world.
