Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Car advised
  • Pets welcome

Bluebell Croft offers 5 Star luxury self catering in the West Highlands of Scotland.

The property consists of 2 separate self-catering units. The 4 bedroomed Honeysuckle House sleeping up to 8, and the 2 bedroomed Rose Cottage sleeping 2-4. Both houses may be combined, via the sunroom, to create a unique space for larger gatherings or family re-unions sleeping 12 in great comfort, or up to 16 with extra beds for children. Both properties have Category 1 disabled access downstairs.

The huge sun room, normally used by Honeysuckle, leads out to the perfectly situated hot tub. The patio for both cottages is a marvellous place to relax and has breath-taking mountain views. It is also the perfect spot for romantic star-gazing!

The houses share a spectacular, elevated West Coast location on the Ardnamurchan penninsular, with stunning mountain views across the Strontian glen. Well behaved dogs are welcome

Strontian is located on the Ardnamurchan peninsula and has a fascinating history. In the 17th and 18th Centuries it was home to one of the biggest lead mines in the world. Now little remains of the mines where once thousands worked or of the infrastructure that supported them.

Strontian is now a quiet, sleepy village, proud of its new High School and, through the recent formation of the Strontian Community Company, of its role as a guardian of the local woods and rivers.

The National Nature Reserve at Ariundle is just a mile or so away, and Strontian is located in the middle of the Sunart Oakwoods initiative area. The program, operated by the Forestry Commission, maintains and develops the remains of ancient oakwood that are found in Lochaline to the south, and all along the south-facing shore of Loch Sunart, from Strontian to Salen. This ancient woodland is of great importance to a wide range of plant and animal species. The Forestry Commission is removing non-native species, encouraging native regeneration, and constructing a range of pathways to improve amenity access. There is an impressive coastal hide at Garbh Eilean 4 miles away, perfect for wildlife-watching.

The peninsula as a whole is a fascinating place to explore, with remote sandy beaches, lochs to fish and hills to roam. You will never be far from a view of the sea. At Kilchoan this is a small ferry to Mull, and at the end of Ardnamurchan you'll find the lighthouse, which marks the most westerly point on the British mainland.

Should you wish to explore further, we are within easy striking distance of Lochaline where there is another small ferry to Mull, which gives access to and Iona, Staffa and more. A little further north are the white sands of Morar and Arisaig from where you can take a magical boat trip to the Small Isles of Muck, Rum and Eigg. The winter skiing and summer mountain gondola rides of Nevis Range and Glencoe are just as close.

We fell in love with the area when we visited in 2010. We'd love to share it with you

Thank you for taking the time to review Bluebell Croft we really appreciate it.
We are pleased that the property had something for everyone in your extended family group, and that the hot-tub was enjoyed so much!
There is currently an installation of fibre-optic cables being installed to upgrade the area and this was probably the reason for interruption of service.
We do hope to see you all again.

"Bluebell Croft"

Thank you for your review.
We are happy that you found the property clean and had plenty of space for your needs.
We are always keen to represent the property in a true and representative manner, and as you rightly point out the drive to the property is steep. Whilst this does give fantastic views, the flipside is the climb.
However it is not always necessary to climb the hill as we do have parking at the bottom of the drive so that wheelchair users may access the country lanes.
