One-of- two detached properties set in a spectacular and secluded location, experience life with an entire island (almost) to yourself when staying at this cosy ground floor property – the perfect retreat for unwinding from life's daily stresses.
Salty dogs and fishing pals will love the privacy and tranquillity of this waterside property on an Island. Leave the car behind on the Scottish mainland and enjoy the feeling of escape from busy lifestyles, as you cross over on the floating footbridge to this hidden treasure with its picture-postcard sea and mountain views. There’s a friendly pub just a mile away, and shops and village amenities in Gairloch (6.5 miles) in the North-West Highlands, ideal for fun-loving couples, canines and families.
Step on to the island, The Kingdom of Islonia is an independent micro-nation - Rover is bound to approve. Step inside your cosy, self-contained ground floor area of a country-style cottage with its rich vibrant hues. Enjoy the bright and airy feel of the open-plan dining and living area, while the kitchen space makes mealtimes a breeze. Enjoy favourite films together in the living room, or hot tub soaks in the sunshine. As evening falls, you’ll find a double bedroom, a shower room (please bring towels), and a shared patio at the front of the building - the perfect spot for Rover to steal sausages from your al fresco BBQ dining treats.
Take a traditional creel fishing boat tour with the owner, and trawl for lobster, langoustine and crabs - a feast to enjoy in your holiday retreat. See abundant wildlife in the local area including birds, seals and dolphins, and enjoy four-legged wanders in the fresh country air of the surrounding hills and majestic mountains. Sporty guests can hire bikes and canoes by arrangement, or head for the sandy beaches of Gairloch (6.5 miles). Visit Beinn Eighe National Nature Reserve and mountain trail near Loch Maree (11 miles. Or pack a picnic with dog treats, and amble the circular trail in Achnashellach (6.5 miles) where you’ll find pup-loving pine woods and waterfalls.
