Activities at Shepherds Cottage

You can explore the beautiful countryside and gorgeous beaches or enjoy the many activities available in the local area. Many people who visit do so to escape from it all, to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life, and to enjoy the peace and tranquillity and the truly spectacular views - it is an ideal spot for walkers, photographers, artists, wildlife watchers and all those who simply enjoy touring and seeing the different views which appear around almost every corner.

We highly recommend guests visit the beautiful art gallery & painters studio in the nearby village of Achintrad.  The following website will give you an insight into the artist’s work:

For those who also like activities of a more energetic or sporting nature, there are ample opportunities for the following:

  • Sailing
  • Canoeing
  • Kayaking
  • Fishing (salmon and trout)
  • Riding
  • Deer stalking
  • Mountain biking
  • Walking / Hiking
  • Climbing
  • Golf course

Lochcarron even has its own 9-hole golf course to which visitors are very welcome. Clubs are available for hire and the club house has its own 'Tee Rooms'!

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,
