Enjoying an idyllic location right on the shoreline of Lochcarron, this single-storey cottage has large picture windows which drink in the loch, hill and mountain views.
Situated on a quiet no-through lane, right on the shoreline, Fasgadh is a traditional single storey cottage for six. Fasgadh is set in its own pretty gardens and grounds that lead down to Loch Carron, a tidal sea loch. The lounge has large picture windows that drink in the stunning views of loch, hills and mountains. There is a bright kitchen/dining room and three attractively presented bedrooms.
The nearby village of Lochcarron is bounded by the sea loch on one side and attractive cottages and houses that straddle the main street on the other; it is one of the prettiest villages in the western Highlands. It has good facilities, including restaurants, cafés, pub, garage, post office and a small general store.
The immediate area is renowned for its wildlife. Dolphins regularly frequent this coastal region and visitors are also just as likely to spot otters and seals close to shore. A paradise for lovers of the great outdoors, it offers unlimited sporting opportunities; golf, climbing, hill walking, fishing, canoeing, diving, sailing and mountain biking are all enjoyed locally. There are some spectacular drives in this part of the Highlands. A trip to Applecross via the highest road in Britain is a must. Known as the Bealach or “Pass of the Cattle” and rising to over 2,000 feet, it affords amazing views across the Minch to the isles of Raasay and Skye. The small railway station at Strathcarron is a halt on the Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh route. It was voted one of the most scenic railway lines in the world. The picture postcard village of Plockton is also just along the coast. With its picturesque flower-filled gardens, little winding streets and pretty cottages lining the foreshore, it is easy to see why it has also become a haunt for artists in recent years. The nearby gardens at Attadale are well worth a visit and the charming sea port of Kyle of Lochalsh, gateway to the Isle of Skye, is also within easy reach.
