How to Find Shepherds Cottage

Shepherds Cottage is situated in a beautiful and peaceful location on the Lochcarron Estate, Ross-shire, Scotland.

It is less than a 2 hour drive away from Inverness Airport, with the Applecross Peninsula 45 minutes away, and 5 km away from the nearest resident neighbour.

There is a 1 km private track leading to Shepherds Cottage.  The track is kept in excellent condition and although a 4x4 vehicle might be preferable it is certainly not essential and access for regular cars is fine.

Testimonials
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
