The most secluded cottage ever! This was the cottage used in the Ring of Brightwater film. Situated at the sea entrance to Loch Feochan it has spectacular views down the Firth of Lorn. Access is by private track of 1.5 miles. No neighbours, just you, the hills and the sea - the ultimate get away from it all location.
Tigh Beg Croft holiday cottage has to be one of the ultimate secluded Highland hideaways - there are no garden fences, only the open land and the sea to keep you in and amused. This classic 'get away from it all' location is set in some fifty acres of informal hill land and shore line giving you some spectacular walking country. The croft and this part of the coastline were used in the 1968 filming of 'Ring of Bright Water' and more recently in the final scenes of 'Enigma', based on the Robert Harris thriller. We feel very privileged to be able to offer Tigh Beg Croft as a holiday cottage and short break destination to enable our guests to totally unwind and relax. The croft has been recently renovated and completely refurbished to give you all the home comforts you would expect, making a great holiday destination at any time of year.
