New for 2019!! Upstairs now fully renovated!!:-
Newly converted upstairs now added to the house, implementing the unique style of Scottish cabinet maker Euan Cuthbert. Euan has a passion for Scottish hard woods and has prioritised comfort, space and light in his vision for Bramble. This is our much loved holiday home and we have really invested our passion in creating a warm and welcoming environment to enjoy year after year.
Second Lounge:- Wander up the hand made oak stairs, made from local wood, to enter the open plan spacious and relaxing lounge. You wont find a second TV here(!) - this space is for relaxing, unwinding and spending time together. Perhaps read a book or watch the diverse range of birds through the patio doors in the surrounding trees. Why not enjoy a glass of wine on the balcony whilst taking in the views of Loch Sunart.
Bedroom 3:- Just off the lounge is a luxury master bedroom suite with hand made king sized bed, simba mattress and en suite which includes roll top bath. This suite will be available from July 2019 - why not treat yourself, you are on holiday! Warning - once you enter, you may not want to leave! (discount available £75 per booking per week for small parties not wishing to use this bedroom)
Garden - Enclosed large, flat sunny garden with seating area.
Large drying shed - 11metres x 2.5 metres - plenty of space for bikes, kayaks and walking equipment!
Fire pit for those who love natures TV with garden enclosure to protect you from the local breeze!
The cottage looks towards beautiful Loch Sunart - a few minutes walk away and an ideal spot for kayakers and sailors alike. Fishing is also popular in the village and local permits are available at the shop.
Strontian is the perfect hub for walkers and nature lovers wishing to explore the many local paths and mountain trails of the area known as the Outdoor Capital of the UK. You may be happy with the walks from the door, and there really is no need to venture far to enjoy the scenery and tranquility, not to mention the wildlife, but it would be a shame to miss out on some of what the area has to offer.
The village has invested in a new pathway this year making it easier to get to the beach. Walks through the Sunart Oakwood forest are also very enjoyable.
Visits to Mull and Iona via the nearby Lochaline ferry or Skye via Mallaig are very enjoyable day trips. The majestic mountains of Glencoe or bustling Fort William can be reached within 45 minutes via a short crossing on the Corran Ferry. Why not climb Ben Nevis - Britains highest mountain, while here? Or simply enjoy the Stunning sandy beaches and secluded spots of Sanna, within easy reach on the Ardnamurchan peninsula whilst Ardnamurchan Point itself, with its dramatic views out to the Hebrides, is the most westerly part of the British mainland. Enjoy lunch at Ardurmuchan Lighthouse - Britains most westerly point. The majestic scenery of the West Highland Line can be experienced by train from nearby Fort William, giving visitors the opportunity to see the world-famous Glenfinnan Viaduct at the head of Loch Shiel. Whatever you choose to do, you will look forward to returning to Bramble Cottage, perhaps preparing a meal in the kitchen to enjoy al-fresco in the garden, or simply relaxing with a good book in one of the lounges before taking a short stroll to the local hotel for a meal.
Forgotten a key ingredient or pint of milk? Don't worry - there are 2 well stocked shops within 5 minutes stroll!
The cottage has been designed for both couples, friends and families in mind and we have many return guests each year from each group. The upstairs area would be perfect for a second couple or for families keen to bring the grand parents and ensure everyone has space. The additional en-suite will save queues in the morning!
The ground floor is wheel chair friendly, with flat entrance, wide doors and lower wall switches. If you have mobility issues you have no need to go upstairs.
The cottage offers a selection of books and DVDs for those wet afternoons and there are board games to bring the whole family together!
An Amazon firestick gives access to Netflix and Amazon Prime, along with all the usual BBC iPlayer/ STV Player content.
A newly installed signal booster means you are now able to make and receive calls from you mobile with most network providers (but you don't need to tell anyone that if you don't want to be contacted!)
At bramble you can do as much - or as little! - as you want. We hope you enjoy it as much as we and all previous guests do.
Many of our guests tell us it the best holiday cottage they have ever stayed in - which explains why so many return year after year!
