Shepherds Cottage is located within the Lochcarron Estate in the Scottish Highlands.
The Cottage dates back to the early 19th Century and was purchased by the current Owner in 2014, providing self-catering accommodation for up to 6 people.
The property was completely rebuilt during a substantial renovation project lasting 1 year. From the floors to the roof, everything was replaced, and 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, 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 walk for miles and see nobody.
The only neighbour within several miles is Glasnock House (same owner / also holiday rental).
Master Bedroom downstairs with adjoining bathroom (full tub).
2 Guest Bedrooms upstairs (1 double, 1 twin), sharing a shower room/WC.
Downstairs is a large open plan living area with 3 rooms leading into each other. The dining space has windows and doors on 3 sides and is flooded with natural light, it leads into the spacious open-planned kitchen and through to the living room with central staircase.
The living room has a traditional wood burner, 50″ plasma screen, SKY TV package, DVD, iPod docking station/music system.
Amazon Smart Speakers in Living Room & Bedrooms.
