The
Experience

This area is one of Scotland’s most awe-inspiring. Take the short walk down to the loch; it’s stunning at all times of year. Jan and Nigel, who built two cottages on an old estate midway between Torridon and Shieldaig, want to give you the best and love to share their knowledge. So welcome to off-grid luxury by the loch: heating and hot water from solar power, a wood-burner fuelled by the estate, and filtrated spring water from a private bore. Nature lovers, head here – it’s a place for dreamers as well as adventurers: feel free to sit back with a book. There are walks from the door, munros further afield, sea tours you can book in advance, and the place is a dog walker’s dream, what with dog mattresses and dog bowls in the utility room where your wet togs dry. Stalk, fish, feast on salmon in Shieldaig. Return to a modern, double-height, open-plan living space, with one bedroom up and one bedroom down, linked by a steepish stair. Raise your glasses to sunsets – the finest you’ve ever seen; each secluded terrace has a front-row view.

Location

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Nigel Thomas

  • Set in glorious Highland wilderness - awesome scenery, flora, fauna and wildlife. Stunning walks straight from the door from high level Munros to estate tracks to secret coastal paths. Put Torridon mountain-bike trails on your bucket list of must-rides.
  • Torridon Rib Charter & Shieldaig Adventures provide a wide variety of activities - loch tours, sailing, sea kayaking. Gin-clear diving. Launch your trailer-sailer from a nearby slipway and enjoy an unforgettable sailing area as if it were your very own.
  • Some of the most exciting driving on the planet! Mostly single track roads, and two challenging mountain passes that really need to be tried. The Bealach na Bá (Pass of the Cattle) to Applecross and the Bealach na Gaoithe (Pass of the Winds) to Diabaig.
  • Take a trip to Applecross for lunch. Reached either by the coast road or the uniquely stunning Bealach na Bá – one of Britain’s highest road passes. National Geographic magazine listed this circular route as one of the top ten scenic drives in the world.
  • You're spoilt for choice with a plethora of award-winning eateries around Torridon and the Applecross peninsula. Eat wonderful local sea-food whilst gazing at the ever-changing mountain landscape, or out to sea across the Minch to Skye and the Hebrides.
  • Fill the hamper with goodies and take a walk from the house along the stunning Falls of Balgy to picnic at the secret sandy beach amongst the mountains on fresh-water Loch Damph.
