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.

Ardnamurchan

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.

"Perfect peace, perfect cottage, perfect holiday"

This was our 2nd stay on the Kingairloch Estate. Because my Brother in Law came with us this time, we booked the Gate Lodge having rather liked the look of it from last year. We were not disappointed. It is such a comfortable cottage and we all felt very much at home there. Wonderful comfortable beds, we all slept soundly. The showers were the best ever, and the kitchen had everything we needed. With the stunning views down the loch to wake up to and gaze at over breakfast, it is hard to beat. But Kingairloch itself is rather hard to beat it is such a very special place. It just grabs you and drags you in! If the kind of holiday you like is one where the outside world is left well and truly behind, where you can walk out of the door and choose half a dozen excellent walks to suit all abilities, where deer, pine martins, eagles all vie for your attention, where all you can hear is the sound of the tide coming in and out and the birds singing, then this is the place for you. However, this is rural with a capital R. 12 miles from the nearest shop, you need to plan! It really is not for everyone, but we love being off the grid. Where Kingairloch really has the edge is The Boathouse restaurant, which is open from Thursday to Sunday. The Boathouse is a superb restaurant. A wonderful warm welcome awaits from Bea , and Roger the chef and his team do not disappoint with the food. It is not cheap & cheerful, we are talking serious good food here, but still reasonably priced for the quality. It is also great to go for morning coffee and homemade shortbread and catch up with the 21st century and log onto the Internet. We were amazingly lucky with the weather, which was stunning all week apart from one day when it was a bit dull and rainy. It really is true that when Scotland has the weather it is the most stunningly beautiful place on earth. We had deer grazing in the garden, pine martins feeding outside the kitchen window, cuckoo's & eagles flying about over our heads. When you feel the need to get out and about there is so much to see and do in the area it is hard to pack it all in, but if you don't it just means you have to come back again and again. A truly wonderful holiday.

"Absolutely perfect accommodation with spectacular views!"

This property was extremely clean, well equipped and cosy due to the underfloor heating. The views were stunning and a perfect location to relax and watch the wildlife. We saw pine martens each evening, red deer grazing by the side of the property and a golden eagle which landed at the end of the garden! It did not feel like holiday accommodation, but home and my only regret is that we should have booked two weeks, rather than one.

"Our pretend second home!"

I am almost reticent to write this review as the Gate Lodge does tend to get booked up ages in advance anyway and I don't want other people competing for our weeks!

This was our fourth week at Kingairloch, our third at the Gate Lodge. We LOVE it! We have two dogs and a toddler. The house is beautifully decorated and the view is amazing - I spend most of the week looking out of the window. The Estate is wonderful. The path network means that you can do a different walk every day and not have to worry too much about roads or sheep (if you have naughty dogs as we do.) The walled garden is worth a look, as is a chat to the lovely Molly who looks after it. The Boat House restaurant is a less than five minute walk, even with a toddler, from the house. It's my favourite restaurant in the world; simple, interesting but unpretentious food and great service from Bea and Roger who also run the Estate now. There is another great restaurant; The White House in Lochaline, about half an hour's drive away, that makes this location great for foodies.

Given the standard of the accomodation, the food and the privacy, if this were a hotel it would be at least a five star and very expensive.

"A most relaxing "estate" of mind"

Two stays at the Gate Lodge within three months says it all ........... When you find somewhere that enables you, within moments of arrival, to relax immediately in the most beautiful, peaceful and remote surroundings .......yet within a short walk of an excellent restaurant ......then you really have arrived at somewhere very special.

Go and stay in this lovely property and treasure the beauty of the stunning Kingairloch Estate.

Thank you for your wonderful review. It really is a special place where you can relax and recharge. We hope to see you again soon.

"I would live there if I could ....."

An outstanding property that feels like home, with a view to die for, and wildlife to enliven every moment. Red deer, pine marten and otter either in or at the end of the garden, together with wonderful bird life that most people only rarely see.
