Sleep from 4 - 8 comfortably, your choice. Private road so no through traffic

A mile from the Estate entrance, the cottages nestle among the hills and fields and in the evenings, deer often come into the gardens to graze. A small stream runs through the garden and you can watch the cows and sheep all round. Attadale Estate offers glorious walking (including two Munros), loch and river fishing. Up in the hills, you can walk all day without seeing anyone. If you enjoy mountain biking, you have lots of opportunities here. You are near the sea. There is no passing traffic as the cottages are at the end of the tarmac road. Furnished with an eclectic mix of antique and modern furniture with attractive prints and paintings in every room, the cottages offer a relaxing and pretty home. New 26' widescreen DVD player in every house. Spend the day curled up with a book or explore far and wide and then return to your comfortable home and warm fire in the evening. Uniquely visitors are able to visit the award winning 4 star Attadale Gardens free of charge at any time during their stay.Free Wifi available

Hill walking, loch & sea fishing, mountain biking: A map is provided in each house with a selection of walks marked on it. The walks vary in length from a couple of hours to all day. Climbing the Munros is only recommended for people who are fit and accustomed to hill-walking. The Attadale estate is ideally situated for walking enthusiasts.

There is fishing available in the hill lochs if you are keen on walking. The river Carron is available to fish for the price of a day ticket which is available locally.

It is good country for mountain-biking enthusiasts. The Lochcarron Garage rents bicycles if you do not bring your own.

The villages of Lochcarron and Strathcarron are only a few minutes drive away where all possible facilities are available: an excellent butchers, village shop, petrol stations, garages, restaurant and cafes. In addition a mere five minutes away, you can find an award winning gift shop, the Carron Pottery as well as the Carron Restaurant so you do not have to go far.

Excellent location in the Scottish Highlands

  • 4 out of 5
We had heard about this location from a friend and it was just as good as he had told us. Close to Lochcarron but set in a scenic valley in the grounds of Attadale House with its beautiful gardens.
We had the biggest of the cottages, Strathan House which will sleep eight although one of the twins is a little small if you have two burly walkers and their kit. We only had one lady in it and that was fine. The other rooms are an excellent size. Parking is a bit limited but you can park on the grass if necessary. We had five cars and managed ok.
Being hillwalkers, getting a lift seven miles up the valley from the head keeper was a great bonus. We climbed both the Munros easily from there on a lovely sunny day.
The Strathcarron Hotel proved excellent for both food and drink.
Overall, it was a great week.

un petit coin de paradis!

  • 5 out of 5
La maison est spacieuse, agréable et confortable. La vue et le cadre sont extraordinaires, nous avions les cerfs le soir juste à côté du cottage. La propriétaire est accueillante, et parles très bien français (ce qui a été pratique pour nous qui parlons très très peu anglais). Pour résumer , un séjour parfait dans cette maison.

Séjour à Strathan House

  • 5 out of 5
C'est notre 2ème séjour en famille (2 familles) dans ce superbe cottage. Propre, très bien équipé, calme, on s'y sent tout de suite comme à la maison. Il se trouve dans un écrin de verdure et les cerfs viennent même brouter dans le jardin ! Le cottage est idéalement situé non loin de la route menant à l'ile de Skye et d'accès facile pour les visites sur le continent. Tous les commerces utiles sont au village à quelques miles et les soirées peuvent se terminer dans l'ambiance chaleureuse du pub de Strathcarron. En résumé c'est un lieu que nous recommandons sans hésitation aucune !

Cute house in a very nice surrounding

  • 5 out of 5
It is a very beautiful, clean and cute house, one of the three.  There is enough space for 8 People - there are 4 bedrooms and in the master bedroom is a double bed.
It has a fitted kitchen where you can cook and bake, if you want to. In the living room is a TV, but only for DVD's - you have so many things to see... TV is not necessary ;)
The houses are very close to the Attadale Garden (a really nice place!) where you can find the washing machine.
 
Strathcarron is close by.
Also close by is a good restaurant and a pub.
 
The owner is very obliging and behaves. She'll help you, if you have any questions.
 
The only thing which we've missed, was the garden furniture. There is a small bench but that's all.
 
Enjoy your stay - the people in this area are so nice and the landscape is so amazing!

Fantastic Location

  • 5 out of 5
Over the past 20 years my family have holidayed at Attadale every year and have stayed in all of the cottages.

Many of the other reviewers have commented about the wonderful Torridon scenery, the fact that you can get to Skye and Applecross easily and the local restaurants. Everything that they say is true, but I'm going to concentrate on whats available within the estate.

A lot of holiday cottages look great in the photos but turn out to be situated on a main road, but at Attadale you can put on your walking boots, turn right out of the cottages and go for anything from a quiet stroll along the riverbank to a full blown, dawn-to-dusk Munro expedition. On your trip you will almost certainly see red deer, on the tops you may see mountain hares and ptarmigan and if you are lucky you will see a golden eagle soaring overhead. Take a picnic to Loch an Isaich or the Star Loch and you can sit in perfect solitude, with nothing but the ripples lapping against the loch side to disturb you.

Your younger children can cycle on the estate road, splash about in the river and even go for a swim in the deeper pools. Older ones can mountain bike all the way to Bendronaig Lodge and beyond and there is great fishing available in lochs all over the estate.

Back at your cottage in the evening there is every chance that the red deer will come and visit you. If you open the door quietly you can slip out of your world and share theirs for a few minutes, standing just a few metres from them while they graze on the cottage lawn.

And the sofas are comfy, the fire is warm, the cottages are clean, etc. There are many holiday cottages that tick those boxes, but only a very few that have the Attadale Estate on their doorstep.

Attadale holiday cottages

  • 5 out of 5
Comfortable and well-equipped cottages and a great location on a Scottish estate where the beautiful Attadale Gardens are yours for the week. In the vast and wild "back garden" they have their own two Munros and deer steal down to the cottages in the middle of the night. Nearby Lochcarron, Applecross and Plockton are three of the prettiest coastal communities in the Highlands and Attadale Estate's eating out recommendations are excellent.

Attadale is a 30,000 acre estate in the North West of Scotland. It stretches from the south shore of Loch Carron to Loch Monar, 15 miles away to the east.

Attadale is ideally situated for touring the North West Highlands. To the North are Applecross, Loch Torridon, Loch Maree and the famous gardens of Inverewe. To the South is the magnificent scenery of Kintail, Glenelg and, at Kyle of Lochalsh, the bridge to Skye.

Attadale Gardens is close by and free access is available to all those who have rented accommodation at Attadale Holiday Cottages.

Lochcarron is but a few miles away around the loch with a number of shops selling useful items.

Other Activities: Fishing, walking, climbing, sailing

Golf: Loch Carron Golf Club - www.lochcarrongolf.co.uk

Lochcarron is a nine hole golf course, although there are actually eleven tees. It measures 3575 yards for eighteen holes and is an enjoyable challenge of accuracy. The Standard Scratch Score and par score for the course is 60.

Every hole on the course offers the golfer something of a challenge.

Whether it is simply avoiding the beach on the first three holes or trying to keep your ball on the humpbacked green at the seventh and sixteenth, all players will find the course a test of skill and character.

Being partly along the shore, a player really knows when the wind blows. Due to the criss-cross nature of the course, the golfer can find themselves faced with a downwind tee shot, then one into the wind and finally a crosswind shot and all in the space of three holes.

The greens are all quite small. Some are flat, some sloping and others with tricky breaks and borrows. They come into their own in the fine summer conditions.
