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 artistís 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'!

Shepherds cottage is surrounded by the most beautiful countryside and really is quite breathtaking. The house really was a home from home and was very comfortable. We were most pleasantly surprised by the great Wifi - although thoughts of keeping in touch with the office faded as time went by! Thanks for a wonderful holiday - we will be booking again!

Thanks so much Rebecca - J and C Taylor
