Be immersed in the wild rugged mountains and countryside of this splendid Highland estate with generous grounds and interiors for an invigorating family or group holiday.

The property rests on a seemingly endless expanse of unspoilt hills, mountains and lochs, home to an array of wildlife from wild deer to birds of prey and skipping salmon in the autumn. By arrangement, you can embark on wildlife-spotting trips, both on land and via boat to Handa Island courtesy of the estate’s knowledgeable staff. Pristine west-coast beaches abound within 10 miles in almost any direction, and just a 22-mile drive away are the arresting cliffs and trails of Cape Wrath which are sure to delight keen walkers.

Inside the property, find beautifully appointed, generous sized rooms, including the large living room overlooking the private gardens towards the loch and hills. An expansive kitchen is a delight in which to cook a delicious meal and comes with a walk-in fridge room, while the spacious dining room is the perfect setting for a special group meal. Lose yourself in a book, choosing from the library, the invitingly furnished drawing room with wood burner, or the perfectly situated sunroom surrounding the property, gazing out to those stunning views. Extra peace of mind is on offer with a two-hour daily housekeeper to hand so you can enjoy a truly peaceful break. At the end of a long day of adventure, recline among the crisp linens in the five bedrooms, many en-suite, for a perfect night’s sleep.

Outside, walk the beautiful mature lawned garden to find a bubbling burn at the foot of the green. Indulge in a picnic on the lawn, or spot the salmon spawning within metres of the house.
