BUNGALOW STRATHAN COTTAGE: 3 BEDROOMS, SLEEPS 5

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday bungalow in Strathcarron - Attadale Holiday Cottages

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. Convenient for exploring Isle of Skye and Applecross peninsula.

Our own Attadale Gardens are free for you as visitors at any time, so you can explore whenever you feel like it. 20 acres of beautifully laid out water gardens, with sculpture scattered throughout. Enjoy the kitchen garden, the fern garden, the Japanese garden.

Attadale station is on the Inverness-Kyle line which means you have easy access both East and West

Sightseeing: Ideally positioned on the South side of Loch Carron you can explore the Isle of Skye, Plockton, Eilean Donan Castle, Applecross and Inverewe Gardens.

Super schön!!

  • 5 out of 5
Wir verbrachten die erste Woche unseres Schottlandurlaubs in Attadale.
Es war wunderbar! Das Haus hatte genügend Platz für zwei befreundete Familien. Alles war sehr sauber und in Ordnung. Die Lage ist traumhaft! Das Beste ist der kostenfreie Eintritt in den Botanischen Garten, wo wir viele wunderschöne Fotos machen konnten. Bewundernswert, die Teestube im Park mit der Kasse des Vertrauens, was in Deutschland vielleicht nicht so möglich wäre.
Auch in der Umgebung haben wir sehr viel unternommen.
Von der nahe gelegenen Bahnstation sind wir mit dem Zug nach Plockton (wunderschön) und Kyle of Lochalsh gefahren, haben die Insel Skye besucht (leider kamen wir für die Runrig-Ausstellung in Portree im Skye's Heritage Centre ein Jahr zu spät), haben uns die Ruine vom Strome Castle angeschaut, waren in Gairloch an einem traumhaften Strand, waren natürlich im Eilean Donan Castle und erlebten unseren schönsten Ausflug nach Applecross. Atemberaubende Landschaft bei Traumwetter!
Einkaufen war im nahe gelegenen Lochcarron gar kein Problem. Und auch das Essen schmeckte in allen von uns besuchten Pubs und Restaurants. Besonders gemütlich und lecker war es in der Kishorn Seafood Bar an der A896 zwischen Lochcarron und Tornapress und im Applecross Inn, wo wir auf Grund des schönen Wetters draußen sitzen konnten.
Auf unserer Weiterreise sind wir von der Insel Skye mit der Fähre von Armadale nach Mallaig übergesetzt, um den traumhaften Blick vom Glen Finnan am Loch Shiel zu genießen!
Fazit – wir würden jederzeit gern wieder in Attadale Urlaub machen!!

cottage très bien aménagé et très bien situé pour découvrir cette partie de l'Ecosse et en particulier l'île de Skye. Tout le confort y est, y compris le feu ouvert qui même en été ...est très agréable ( oui, c'est l'Ecosse quand même). Il y a de l'espace et le tout est aménagé avec goût. Je vous recommande aussi le visite des jardins " Attadale " qui sont juste à côté et qui sont superbes ( c'est gratuit pour les locataires des cottages) et où vous rencontrerez peut-être Joanna, la sympathique propriétaire .Aussi, vous vous retrouverez probablement nez à nez avec un jeune cerf qui vous regardera par la fenêtre en venant brouter l'herbe aux abords du cottage :)

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.
