Cottage | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 12
Nestled at the foot of the Five Sisters of Kintail in a glen that boasts no fewer than twenty one Munros, Woodlands enjoys the best of both worlds being in a remote location yet having a shop plus a bar and restaurant all within walking distance. This spacious house sleeps 10/12 extremely comfortably and has 4 bath and/or shower rooms. In one of the outbuildings there is a pool table and dart board.
Woodlands is incredibly well-placed for both hill-walkers and tourers. It is also ideal for large family get-togethers and is often rented out for those special occasions.

The Scottish Highlands region
Glenshiel is one of the most awesome and atmospheric glens in Scotland. Situated at the head of this amazing glen, Woodlands is a fantastic base for climbers, walkers and tourers. Apart from the multitude of Munros in Glenshiel (Five Sisters and Saddle being accessed directly from the house) there's a whole host of other walks to do including coastal, valley and woodland. Wander along tumbling burns and deserted glens, marvel at the many cascading waterfalls, especially after heavy rain. Other mountain ranges reachable from Woodlands are the Cuillen hills, Ben Nevis range, Glen Affric, Glenelg, Torridon and Knoydart. In addition, Glencoe is about two hours away.
The Isle of Skye, with all it has to offer, is twenty minutes by car. Eilean Donan Castle, reputed to be the most photographed in Scotland, is nearby. For those interested in history, the iron age brochs are a must. Armadale Gardens, Poolewe Gardens and Attadale Gardens are all within reach for the avid horticulturalists.
Woodlands is also extremely well-placed for touring the Highlands and Islands. Enjoy the peace and tranquility of Applecross accessed via the highest road in Scotland or take a cruise along Loch Ness and visit Urquhart Castle. Closer to home there is the glorious Glenelg peninsular, the delightful Plockton or you may fancy going over the sea to Skye. Take a seal trip, sail in a glass-bottomed boat, go boating, pony trekking, mackarel fishing or just relax in the house and enjoy the views.
