  • Tranquil cottage located on a remote glen with breath-taking views from the property

  • Ideal base to explore the Scottish Highlands and fishing opportunities in Loch Shin
Property code: CA074

This former shepherd''s cottage boasts plenty of character and forms an idyllic base from which to explore the rugged Highlands.

Tranquility and seclusion reign at this former shepherd's cottage in a remote Highland glen. Sleeping six people across four bedrooms and welcoming one furry friend, the bright and colourful property sits at the foot of a rugged hill and has a burn on its doorstep. The burn runs all the way down the glen to Loch Shin, making this a magical place to go walking with your trusty pup by your side. With its idyllic, ‘getaway-from-it-all' location and stunning panoramic views, this is the perfect rural retreat for families or groups of friends who like to pull on their hiking boots and discover what the Highlands has to offer.

 

Brimming over with character, this cottage retains a real sense of its history in its pleasingly simple decor. After a day's hiking or fishing, play with your pup in the property's grassy burn-side garden before cooking up a storm in the fully-equipped kitchen. In the early evening, keep an eye-out for the herds of red deer that come down from the hills, and at the end of the day, chill out in front of the fire with your four-legged friend or retire to one of the comfortable bedrooms.

 

Take your pup for a pretty stroll as the Falls of Shin (21.5 miles), one of the best places in Scotland to see salmon in their natural habitat. The café there is also dog-friendly. Alternatively, take a scenic drive to the gorgeous Dunrobin Castle (36 miles). Your hound may not be welcome on the formal gardens, but they'll have a great time exploring the woodlands that surround the castle.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

We loved it here. We booked a week and really regretted nor making it 2 weeks. We loved the isolation, walking on the hills and swimming in the stream. It was the perfect place for us. Also great having a fully equipped kitchen so we could cook proper meals. We will definitely come back

Lovely roomy well appointed property. Double bed in master bedroom. Two single bedrooms. One bedroom with two single beds. Kitchen has all white goods. If I had a negative to express I would suggest a larger TV in the sitting room. Well worth a visit

Great remote location. Escape the city/town life. We arrived very late and Amanda was understanding(many thanks) Greeted by a herd of 30+ deer after driving along the lane to the cottage. The views are fantastic, enjoy the walks to the tarn. Cottage is close to the most northerly munro(check the distance from the cottage first) Along with this AmanRead moreda somehow arranged for the satellite(LNB) to be replaced within 3 days!! Hide

Great location. Saw deer golden eagles curlew.Fishing on shin merkland and grimha was great. No water for the river. Hill lochs above and across from cottage very good but a hard slog to get to them.Great place to get away from civilisation for a week. Hotel only for residents.

Location is amazing: bottom of glen, 3.5 miles from nearest houses, as antisocial as even we could have hoped for! House was clean and generally comfortable. Some limitations as to kitchen equipment, probably due to Covid, e.g. no wooden spoons or spatulas,etc. We only used 2 bedrooms but both were comfortable. Caretaker was very friendly and helpfRead moreul. Would definitely come here again but maybe not in August due to the midges. Hide

Once again we had a fantastic holiday at Corriekinloch. My eldest caught lots of big trout and my youngest enjoyed exploring the waterfall, mountains and walks. Both dogs had a fab time along with us grown ups. The only downside was the midges were so bad we were stuck in for the mornings and evenings and didn't see any deer because of them. ObviouRead moresly the midges can't be helped. Luckily during the days they weren't so bad. All in all we had a lovely time away again Hide
