About the property

Near Acharacle & Salen village, Ardnamurchan Peninsula, near Loch Shiel, rural.

Brae Cottage is the ideal place to escape to for a relaxing holiday. Perfectly positioned on the outskirts of the beautiful village of Acharacle, within easy walking distance from the cottage. There you will find the local grocery shop and post office, bakery, take away, and pub. Only a short drive will take you to the neighbouring villages which also hold a host of amenities.

Brae Cottage itself is a small open plan semi detached cottage, once the local coffee shop, now loving renovated to make the most of its easily accessible location. The cottage features a country kitchen with breakfast bar and dining area, opening out into a cozy lounge area with a fantastic real wood burning stove and leather sofa - perfect for those wintery nights!. The lounge area also includes a large TV/DVD player along with a selection of DVD's. In the open plan kitchen there is a halogen hob, oven, fridge freezer, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine, along with all the other essential you would expect in a homely kitchen. In the bedroom there is a cozy double bed with plenty of storage for you clothes. We have included a hairdryer in the bedroom for your convenience. The neat bathroom features a large walk in shower and heated towel rail. In the entrance hall you will find plenty of space to hang your jackets and a place for your muddy boots after that long walk.

Because of its beautiful rural location, mobile signal can be a bit unreliable, so we have installed a landline for your convenience. Also included is unlimited wi fi.

We welcome (well behaved!) pets.

Ideal for the outdoor lover, there is an abundance of walks and outdoor activities to choose from (local information provided in cottage), and when you get home from either an exhausting or chilled day out, you can relax by the cozy fire in perfect peace!

Please note the cottage does not have a garden/enclosed area.....but don't let that put you off........there is so much to do, and so many beautiful things to see - you wont need it, or miss it!!

About Kirsty Thomas

I have lived on the West Coast of Scotland all my life and am passionate about the area and the abundance of wildlife and activities that you can see and do when visiting. I believe that a holiday is more than 'getting away from it all' its creating a memory, and its my job to help you make those memories wonderful! I have been renovating and running holiday houses for several years now and am proud to say the others have achieved 5 star reviews and continue to do so. I plan to make Brae cottage the same!

Kirsty Thomas purchased this cottage in 2014

Brae Cottage is a perfect getaway retreat.

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage has been decorated beautifully. It is cosy and compact but still allows the feeling of plenty of space. It is resourced enough to allow you the comfort of home and you will want for nothing. Ours evenings were perfectly relaxed after long days exploring stunning locations.

Brae Cottage is perfectly situated for peace and quiet with stunning views just minutes away. The takeaway (just down the road) serves wholesome homemade food and the local shop is fully equipped for essential items.

Kirsty is a perfect host and she wil literally bend over backwards to make sure your stay is perfect. Wifi is strong and the landline is perfect as mobile reception is really poor. We thank you for everything you did Kirsty.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and fully recommend Brae Cottage for the perfect, getaway.

Every care taken to make this cottage cosy and bright

We absolutely loved staying here, it's such a nicely thought-out space for two. Kirsty has obviously put so much care and effort into making the place nice and she was really pleasant to deal with. Highly recommended!
