General Info

There is luxury 5 star self catering accommodation in these 2 cottages: Honeysuckle House has 4 bedrooms (8 guests) and Rose Cottage has 2 bedrooms (4 guests). Available separately or they join by a huge conservatory which creates an enormous holiday house in Scotland, sleeping 12 in great comfort, or up to 16 with children. Strontian is on the Ardnamurchan peninsular, near the sea on the West Coast of the Highlands of Scotland. There is a giant hot tub under the stars for use all year round - described by the Sunday Times as 'the best sited hot tub in Europe'! The property has a Green Gold Award for environmental efforts & policies and it is very wheelchair friendly (wheel-in showers and easy access throughout downstairs) in category 1 (un-assisted wheelchair access).

Beauriful white sandy beaches of Sanna and the Singing Sands. Ben Nevis and Fort William are only half an hour as is Glen Coe. There is an impressive coastal hide at Garbh Eilean 6 miles away, perfect for wildlife-watching.

Accommodation Details

Interior Details
Honeysuckle House has two double bedrooms and two twin bedrooms. The double rooms have king-size beds and both twin rooms can be turned into super king-size zip and link doubles. All four bedrooms are en-suite. There is lots of space in the enormous sitting/dining room. The large conservatory has spectacular views across the valley to the hills and gives access to the hot tub. There’s a large drying room in the porch area for wet clothes and boots. Rose Cottage has one double bedroom and one twin bedroom. The double room has a king-size bed, and the twin room can be turned into a super king-size zip and link double. Both bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms. The kitchens in both houses are superbly equipped. Both houses have free wireless broadband, a TV, DVD and CD player and are well stocked with books, DVD’s, puzzles and board games.

Exterior Details
We have a barbecue which runs on wood or, if you prefer to bring your own, charcoal. In Honeysuckle house an enormous table and chairs face up the glen to the spectacular mountain view of Sgurr Dhonaile. Rose cottage has a table and chairs in a wonderfully secluded, sunny spot facing south towards Loch Sunart. The hot tub is for the exclusive use of guests staying at Honeysuckle House and Rose Cottage. Being on a working croft, guests at the holiday house in Scotland can help us collect free-range duck & hen eggs and enjoy fresh seasonal produce from the poly-tunnel and allotment, as available. The houses are situated close to a National Nature Reserve with walking and cycling from the door and sea kayaking 1/2 mile away. Day trips to the Small Isles and Mull/Iona, and ski-ing nearby in Glen Coe and the Nevis Range are all tempting options.

Further Details
We have created buildings which are very well insulated and full of low energy appliances and lights, and toasty under-floor heating downstairs that renders the upstairs radiators redundant for most of the year. We actively encourage and have facilities for, recycling paper, cardboard, glass, tins and cans, recyclable plastics and organic waste via composting. There is a wind turbine situated 300 m from the houses - it can’t be seen or heard but on windy days generates all our electricity. We have a wood boiler and solar panels - and we are burn no oil in the two houses - a long held ambition fulfilled. Outside we try to strike a balance between making our small croft productive while doing what we can to encourage biodiversity. The top field is grazed lightly from midsummer, allowing bluebells and orchids to thrive, while the bracken is kept in check by harvesting for bedding and composting. Elsewhere, native trees and berry bearing hedging have been planted, ponds created and areas set aside and allowed to be overgrown, though these areas can yield wild brambles and raspberries. Lots of bird and bat boxes and feeders are distributed about the place. Much produce is available from the working croft from eggs, fruit, vegetables, jams or even a beef casserole to order for the evening you arrive prepared especially for you so you do not have to cook after your journey.

Conditions of Rental
Changeover day is Friday. For guests with children we can provide cots, highchairs, toys, games and books. There are DVD's for little ones and a trampoline. The holiday house in Scotland is very wheelchair friendly with an electric hoist, wheel-in shower, shower/commode chair. It is very family friendly accepts dogs with care and follows many green environmental policies- Green Tourism Gold Award.  As well as access to home produced ingredients from the working croft, there is a beef casserole available by prior order.
