Shepherds Cottage, Lochcarron Estate

Shepherds Cottage is located within the Lochcarron Estate in the Scottish Highlands, and provides self-catering accommodation for up to 6 people.

The Cottage dates back to the early 19th Century and was purchased by the current Owner in January 2014.  The property was completely rebuilt during a substantial renovation project lasting 1 year.

From the floors to the roof, everything became ‘as new’ (in 2015).  The Owner spared no expense on the highest quality and attention to detail.  Today, the Cottage is of the highest specification whilst retaining classic tradition, resulting in a perfect combination of ultra-modern with period design.

For those wanting to get away from it all in a unique and remote setting, Shepherds Cottage is one of a kind.  Surrounding you are hills and Lochs and the deer graze right down by the house while the river bubbles past. You can fish from the banks of the Loch for native brown trout and you can walk for miles and see nobody. 

The only neighbour within several kms is Glasnock House (same owner / also holiday rental).

Features of the House:

  • Master Bedroom downstairs with adjoining bathroom (full tub)
  • 2 Guest Bedrooms upstairs (1 double,1 twin), sharing a showerroom/WC
  • Large open plan living area downstairs with 3 rooms leading into each other - the beautifully located dining / eating area with 3 sided windows and French doors, leading into the spacious open plan fully equipped kitchen which in turn leads into the spacious living room with central staircase
  • The living room has a traditional wood burner, 50"ť plasma screen, SKY TV package, DVD, iPod docking station/music system.  WIFI available.
  • The Porch doubles up as a perfect dog room and well designed for leaving your wet wellies and jackets to dry (tumble dryer is in the porch)
  • The outhouse storeroom is connected to the cottage, with logs and extra toys!
  • In addition there is a beautiful summer house / outdoor pavilion with fitted cushion seating, rocking chair, camp beds, and board games. The ideal place for the kids and adults to have some extra time out from each other! 

Shepherds Cottage is the perfect getaway for families or couples in search of pure escapism in a rustic but highly luxurious environment.
Everything in Shepherd’s cottage was spot on, decor was to such a high standard we felt immediately at home with all these lovely touches and mod-cons. The Neptune furniture and accessories fit in so well and make a stay in this special location even more enjoyable. Loved all the artwork – feels a bit like staying in some sort of gallery ;-) The kitchen is very well equipped, the mattress in the master bedroom was so comfortable and we enjoyed to relax in the evenings in the living room. We have seen your photo-book about the remodeling of Shepherds Cottage and know how much work has to be done to achieve these modern style in an “old shell”. You have done another perfect job and you are a wonderful host! Even the weather was almost perfect for this time of the year and we used the only fully rainy day as an excuse to enjoy a whole day in the cottage. Was a nice surprise to find out that the Lochcarron Spar shop has some delicious breads (including our favourite “wholemeal chia power”). Only downsides are that we had to leave and that we did not made it to your mom’s gallery – but perhaps next time…would happily return! With best wishes,
