Knoydart is often referred to as “Britain’s last wilderness” and it’s not hard to see why. Free from light pollution, mobile masts and roads, its remote and rugged landscape is one of the most unspoilt natural landscapes you could ever hope to visit. The best way to explore and experience the countryside at its best is on foot - stroll along the beach, go on guided or historical walks, try deer stalking, go hill walking or climb a few munros. And if you want to get out on the water you can go sea angling and kayaking or charter a boat to take you to Kinloch Castle, Eilean Donan Castle, Arisaig and the tiny Inner Hebridean isles. This is the perfect place for dolphin, otter, seal and whale spotting, you could go cycling, or you could take a trip on the Jacobite steam train that featured in the Harry Potter films. Fishing rod hire can be arranged.
There are no roads into Knoydart so you will have to drive from Fort William to Mallaig on the A830. See the website for full driving directions. The ferry from Mallaig then takes 25 or 45 minutes. If you want to get the train you’ll need to go via Glasgow to Fort William and Mallaig and the sleeper train from London Euston is a very civilised way to travel. We will arrange a collection and drop off service from the ferry so you can relax about transporting your luggage.

The house has been built to make the most of light, loch views and natural resources, with windows that invite the outside in, framing the woodland wonderland. Beneath the Italian tiles there is under floor heating throughout, and pieces of furniture like the super king canopy bed and the mahogany dining table all add to the feeling of indulgence. The freestanding bath in the en-suite bathroom enjoys incredible views, the living room stays cosy with a wood burning stove, and the state-of-the-art kitchen has all the mod cons, from a bread maker to a coffee machine. Fluffy bathrobes, organic lemongrass toiletries and crisp white linen are part of the package.
