The Old Post Office

Kyle, Highland

A great escape - for walking and wildlife watching, a trip to Skye, a chance to totally unwind and revel in simple pleasures


2 bedrooms


Sleeps 4


In a remote and spectacular part of the Highlands – a beautiful 20-mile drive from the main road over the Manratagan Bealoch, through Glenelg and Arnisdale, to the lovely loch and river-side hamlet of Corran – is this cosy family cottage built on the site of the old Post Office. Inside everything’s been well thought through, from the underfloor-heated open plan living area, with country-style kitchen and pantry/drying room (marvellous!), to the tartan-clad king size double that converts to a twin, upstairs loo and separate bath and shower downstairs. There’s an open fire in the traditional sitting room – with its books, games and WiFi – and those wonderfully evocative views of Loch Hourn and the Isle of Skye; the lawned and fenced garden is right next to the river mouth and loch, perfect for contemplating your next move. Take the ferry to Skye, stride out through the glens, climb a Munro and explore Glenelg’s ancient Brochs. There’s kayaking, horse riding, wildlife watching  – what bliss to spot an otter or a golden eagle – and in summer you can pop down to the village for tea. A great Scottish escape.
