Fantastic two weeks spent here
Couldn’t give Joanna and her staff enough praise to this fantastic cottage. Two lovely weeks was had with another week planned.
A must holiday retreat...
Harvey and Su
Sehr zu empfehlen!!!
Wir, 2 Erw., 2 Kinder hatten einen rundum wunderschönen Urlaub im Strathan Cottage. Die Unterkunft ist sehr großzügig und gemütlich, es ist ein 3. Schlafzimmer für eine weitere Person vorhanden und eine 2. Toilette. Die umgebende Landschaft ist atemberaubend, Attadale Gardens sehr eindrucksvoll. Es ist alles vorhanden, was man benötigt. Die Kinder und wir mochten auch den offenen Kamin besonders (Holz ist da) und die Tiere hinter dem Haus. Die vielen Inseln machen Ausflüge auf dem Wasser zum Traum (klares Wasser: Seesterne, Seeigel, Muscheln, ...auf dem Grund zu sehen). Wir waren mit Kajaks unterwegs- Seehunde haben uns neugierig beäugt (Touren sind möglich). Eine Tour ganz hoch hinauf bleibt in Erinnerung (super Fotos). Highland-Landschaft, Seen, ... rundum, wie erhofft. Natürlich darf das Eileen Donan Castle nicht unerwähnt bleiben, quasi um die Ecke, die Insel Skye ebenso, ... .Wir waren 1 Woche hier -> viel zu kurz!!!!!
Viele Grüße an J. Macpherson und vielen Dank, daß wir von so einem gemütlichen Ort aus einen so schönen Teil Schottlands entdecken durften!
Britta und Werner
great cottage, beautiful location!
very nice cottage, clean, great fireplace, bedrooms were nice an big, a lot of things to see in the immediate surroundings. One little thing: there was no exhaust hood in the kitchen and you couldn't open the windows because of the midgets.
Many thanks for your kind review. We do appreciated your feedback. The midges are of course a problem at this time of year - but that isn't just Attadale - it's one of the joys of being in the Highlands of Scotland!
Well furnished charming cottage.
Beautiful location in the most wonderful country. Estate walks (inc mountains moor and forest)and surrounding country are spectacular. Really excellent places to eat locally.
Many thanks for your enthusiasm, which will help others get an idea of Attadale Holiday Cottages.
Pratique, confortable, idéalement placé.
Je vous le recommande.
Many thanks indeed.
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 :)
Merci beaucoup pour tous vos aimables paroles
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.
