The Scottish Highlands region
World-renowned for their Scenic beauty, the Scottish Highlands offer unsurpassed touring, mountains, lochs, glens, wildlife sightings and much more! The beauty of this part of the world is the peacefulness, clean air and the friendly people.
Although The Scottish Highlands does experiences high levels of rainfall, it really isn't expected to top up your tan on a holiday here! However, the months of April, May, June, September and October usually expect better weather. During the months of December, January and February there is often snow on the mountains and often at lower levels.
Situated on the Stunning West Coast of Scotland, Ardnamurchan is a long, narrow peninsula along the shores of Loch Sunart and includes the most westerly tip of the British Mainland. Kingairloch is actually on the Morvern peninsula which flanks the other side of Loch Sunart and the sound of Mull. The name is derived from the Gaelic A' Mhorbhairn, meaning Sea-Gap.
A visit to the Ardnamurchan Lighthouse located on the most westerly tip of the British Mainland is well worth a trip, the views of the Atlantic are quite amazing. There are numerous sea tour operators that take visitors for day trips to explore the local coastline, a trip to Fingals Cave on Staffa is very special.
The Isle of Mull is only a short drive away and is home to the famous town of Tobermory, Sea Eagles and fantasitc beaches. Visitors can catch the ferry from Lochaline and enjoy a fantastic day out.

Fantastic Cottage lovely views. Great walks from the door step or just relax. We seen the roe deer by the river and we had a visit from a lovely stag in the garden one night.The boat house a lovely place to eat beautiful food cooked by Roger. His wife Bee is a lovely person very helpful if there is anything you want to know just ask her.The dogs loved every minute.We would recommend Kingairloch Highland estate and Ghardail cottage to everyone.If you just want chill out and relax great. We hope to return soon.

"Excellent cosy cottage surrounded by stunning scenery"
Excellent fully equipped cottage that was ideal for a family of 4. Set in stunning scenery with lots of walking opportunities. Nice big stag on the back lawn one evening and eagles flying in the valley. Not far from the Ardnamurchan Peninsula where we saw otters, seals and herons.

"Comfortable cottage - incredible scenery"
Well equipped and very comfortable cottage, easily accommodates four. Surrounded by magnificent scenery, with stags on the back lawn in the morning. Delicious food at The Boathouse Restaurant.

"Still the perfect getaway!"
Already had one week in Ghardail in 2012. This was a welcome return and I loved it even more.
The cottage is nestled up in the hills, a couple of miles on from the main Kingairloch base. This makes it extremely private, without being even close to rustic. I've been to many places in Scotland over the years but I now find myself planning a third holiday at Ghardail.
The things I love:
- No light pollution. If you are blessed with clear skies at night, make the most of them. The stars truly appear heavenly from this site, and that includes all the ones you normally can't see from even rural English locations.
- No interruptions. I love the fact I cannot even receive a text message unless I'm out in the open and at least halfway up the hill. If you're one that cannot leave your work behind, for even just a week, this isn't for you.
- Deer! On good days you have to venture out to find them. Once you do, stay still for an hour and you'll notice more, and more, and even more. Oh, and several golden eagles. The weather turned sour halfway into the week and this resulted in the deer coming down lower. Woke up in the night to a stag outside the cottage, 'roaring' out, with it's call being responded in kind by other stags around the nearby hills. What I wouldn't have given for a night vision camera at that moment.
This year we got our admin and prep just right so that we could settle in immediately and enjoy the first few days. We only had to come back to civilisation once for a big shop and fresh local langoustine of course. Other than that, we remained on the peninsula the whole week.

"Lovely renovated cottage on a wonderful estate"
Lovely, comfortable and well equipped cottage. It has been renovated to a high standard.The estate is superb with excellent walks/runs from the doorstep. (there are no marked routes or paths to follow so you are in the wild! The beauty and freedom of this is fantastic). Our dog loved it. Nearest shop is in Stronthian about 12 miles away. Really nice drive to get there and also some good walking.
We feel that the photograph of the cottage with the clearing on the left hand side needs updating as there is now a large building (water pumping station?) in very close proximity to the cottage. During our weeks stay there were dumper trucks and diggers coming and going. We realise that Kingairloch is a working estate. However we would have booked a loch side cottage if we had known as Ghardail is not completely isolated.
We also didn't realise that the cottage was 2 miles by road and 1.25 mile walk from the loch. (I am sure that his was our misunderstanding). We were under the impression that the cottage although not loch side was only a short distance from it. This did not spoil our weeks holiday in any way. We had a superb time and will certainly return to the estate. We saw seals in the loch, an eagle and had a large red deer eating in our garden. We also had a wonderful meal at the boathouse. The venison was excellent. Highly recommended.

"Isolated & idyllic"
A memorable stay in a beautiful and (to us) previously unknown location.
Delightful and well appointed cottage.
Only 2 minor gripes: 1)For a keen cook, the lack of a sharp knife or steel was problematic
2)We had no person interaction with anyone from the Estate.
These small matters did not spoil in any way a lovely peaceful break.
Thank you for your feedback, it's always very helpful to have customer comments. Ghardail is certainly a remote cottage and I hope you enjoyed the walks from there.

"Great cottage for a rural retreat"
Great house, comfortable, well finished, peaceful, renovated to a high standard with quality furnishings. Woodburning stove with adequate supply of firewood ( we turned off the heating to enjoy the ambience of the stove). Comfortable beds. spacious bathroom. Reasonable path down to sea and Boathouse restaurant ( good food, reservation suggested). The kitchen is well appointed however could do with a dishwasher; there is adequate space. The property would benefit from wifi however all in all a superb 'get away'.

"Beautifully presented traditional cottage in remote wilderness location"
A unique opportunity to stay in one of the few remaining wilderness areas remaining in Britain. Although this wilderness has a tragic origin -- Morvern was viciously cleared of its crofting communities in the mid-nineteenth century -- all those who love wild, unspoilt wilderness are its beneficiaries now. The cottage is beautifully decorated and very comfortable and warm (oil central heating and a log stove) and only a few miles from the Kingairloch Estate's own restaurant which is friendly and reasonably priced. The walking across this and the neighbouring estates is superb especially if, like us, you are interested in planning your own long-distance routes. We took two cars and, on one of the days, walked from Ardtornish back to the cottage via Glensanda Quarry -- a superb expedition.
The estate is also dog friendly and there are plenty of walks onto the hill straight from the door. Very highly recommended.

"The perfect getaway!"
The truly remote location belies the luxury within. The cottage has a good sized and well equipped kitchen with dining area. Plenty of everything, particularly roasting venison. The estate prepare … More
