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.
