Not content with one gorgeous house high on the hill, Jackie and Ian have put up another and it’s every bit as lovely. The only difference is size – this is a magical bolthole for two, perfect for honeymoons or just a blissful time away. Inside, walls of glass open onto a decked terrace, where you can soak in a hot tub while screened from the world by pine trees. Inside, there’s a contemporary wood-burner in the sitting room, a kitchen with ample cooking stuff, a lovely big bed that looks out to sea, then a bathroom that’s hard to beat with a double-ended bath, a walk-in power shower and an infrared sauna. You’ll find all you’d want – fancy TV and DVD player, bath robes to pad about in, a bottle of prosecco on arrival – even the lawn is special, sown with 32 species of wild flower, the same turf as Olympic Park. If you don’t want to cook, a chef can do it for you – lazy breakfasts, afternoon tea, seafood barbecues. Further afield, the wonders of Knoydart: wild orchids, sea eagles, mountains to climb. You can kayak, cruise the sea loch or do nothing at all. Stars fill the night sky, the Northern Lights come in winter.
