The cottage dates back to the 1800's where it was a shepherds cottage. We have still maintained the wooden walls and the huge open fire. The cottage is well equipped to provide 'Home from Home' and is an excellent base to explore from. We are a short drive from the coast and well positioned between the ports to go and explore the Islands. The estate hire out canoes, rowing boats and bicycles. We also can arrange wild brown trout fishing in the hill lochs and course fishing on Loch Ederline. The local area is steeped in history and archaeological sites. There are many local attractions and activities including horse riding, sea trips, museums, jails ,golf courses, mountain biking,walking and bird watching to name just a few.

The garden is fenced to keep out the sheep but the deer still jump in, so hence no borders of shrubs for them to feed on! The access to the cottage is up a half mile gated track and parking is available beside the cottage. There is a log shed to the back of the cottage with a clothes line as well. This cottage is remote but a tonic to be consumed regardless of season.
The cottage is let out on a weekly basis from a Friday 4.00pm till Friday 10.00am
We do accept short lets out of high season but a minimum of three days.
We would need a £60 deposit to secure the booking with the balance paid six weeks before the guests arrived.
We provide all linen/towels/tea towels and logs for the open fire.
if there were any breakages we would hope some money would be left to cover it.
Electricity is metered and charged at cost at the end of your stay.
We do ask if the cottage can be left as clean and tidy as found.
