“Beautiful lochside property “
We invite you to experience our delightful holiday home, suitably named “Cronan-Na-Mara”, which translates from the Gaelic to “The Murmering of The Sea”. If you are in search of peace, tranquillity and spectacular views over Loch Duich and the mountains of Kintail then look no further.
This south facing detached property is situated on its own secluded plot directly on the shores of Loch Duich. Open the front door and you are a few metres from the water, greeted with striking and uninterrupted panoramic views.
The cottage is situated in the small village of Inverinate on the north shore of Loch Duich in the Kintail/Lochalsh area of the Scottish Highlands. The location is quite literally a walker’s / outdoor pursuits paradise with hill walking, climbing, water sports and shore walks right on the door step. The cottage is a perfect base to experience everything that the area has to offer and is a fantastic place to relax and unwind in following a day in the outdoors..
Kintail and Lochalsh is one of the most popular areas for walking and climbing in the Scottish Highlands. Kintail itself is famed for its classic mountain ridge walks. The Five Sisters and the South Glen Shiel Ridge are particular favourites of Munro baggers, whilst The Saddle is one of the most magnificent mountains in all Scotland. Closer to Skye is the Lochalsh peninsula between the shores of Loch Duich and Loch Carron. This area offers varied walking with villages such as Plockton as well as the region's main town at Kyle of Lochalsh. Across the dramatic Mam Ratagan pass is the remote and secluded Glenelg peninsula, a tranquil and peaceful haven far from busy routes.
The area is rich in wildlife and with some patience and determination you will be able to see sea otters playing on the shore of Loch Duich and golden eagles soaring around the mountain peeks. There are also deer, pine martin, badgers and wild goats to be seen. There is good fishing locally both in the rivers and sea. Nearby is the Isle of Skye which can be accessed via the Skye Bridge.
