Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Strathcarron - THE OLD SCHOOL HOUSE

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Relax and unwind in this former school house. Secluded, yet within a wonderful location to explore. Excellent walking and climbing nearby.. This secluded and spacious cottage with its own walled garden, enjoys a gloriously sunny position on the seashore with spectacular views towards the islands of Raasay, Rona and Skye. Reached via a quarter-mile track, this former school house has been tastefully converted, whilst retaining interesting original features; formerly classrooms, the living-room and kitchen feature lovely high ceilings, and there is a large picture window in the hall, ideal for viewing wonderful sunsets and abundant wildlife.This is a superb location for touring the scenic Applecross and Torridon areas; for a truly memorable drive out, head for the Pass of the Cattle – at 626 metres above sea level, this is Britain’s highest pass and affords some dramatic scenery along its length. There is excellent walking and climbing terrain nearby, both inland and along the rugged coastline – watch out for seals and otters just off shore. Several NTS properties make for good days out, including Strome Castle, and the Countryside Centre at Torridon (open May to September), the latter providing an insight into local flora, fauna and geology. From Torridon village, a scenic drive takes in the shoreline before winding past cliffs and gorges up to Diabaig, whilst 8 miles to the north, Lake Maree is dotted with Caledonian pine clad islands and lies as a scenic gem. The surrounding area also offers some of Scotland’s best deer-sighting country.Sandy beaches are to be found at Sand (3 miles) and Applecross Bay (7 miles); the village of Applecross itself has a P.O./local store and a friendly inn serving fresh seafood dishes. The sheltered, fertile coast around the village is idyllic: you can wander along lanes banked with wild iris and orchids, and explore beaches and rock pools on the shore. Fishing and golf are both within driving distance. Shop 7 miles.. Hall/sitting room with sea view from picture window. Large, part-panelled living room with multi-fuel burner and splendid views. Well-equipped, modern fitted, farmhouse-style kitchen/dining room with multi-fuel burner and electric cooker. Bathroom with shower over corner bath and toilet. First floor: Three bedrooms with sloping ceilings; two bedrooms, each with Velux window with sea views, one double with 5ft bed, en-suite bathroom, wash basin and toilet, one twin, and one single..
