Description from owner

Description

Glenhurich Lodge is located in the small peaceful hamlet of Polloch that lies between scenic Loch Doilet and the unspoilt Loch Shiel. A traditional Highland lodge set in in an acre of mature gardens and surrounded by one of the few areas of true wilderness that remain in Scotland. It is something special and just a little different from the norm. This is the perfect location for those seeking tranquility in the Scottish countryside. Inside, the house has been carefully and comfortably furnished.

Location description from owner

The Lochaber region

Ardnamurchan is the most Westerly peninsula on the UK mainland and is, without doubt, one of the most beautiful and remote wilderness areas on the west coast of Scotland. The Lodge is nestled in Glenhurich, arguably the loveliest glen in Scotland, with the magnificent Loch Shiel nearby. The area is home to some of the few remaining ancient oakwoods; the last remnants of a temperate rainforest that once extended south as far as Spain. Glenhurich is a haven for naturalists, artists, photographers, sports enthusiasts and those who are simply searching for peace & tranquility.

From Bonnie Prince Charlie's Monument in Glenfinnan in the north (a 15 mile cycle on forestry track) to Castle Tioram in the south, Loch Shiel is steeped in history. Despite the unspoiled wilderness of Glenhurich on the Southerly shores of Loch Shiel, approximately six miles away is the local village of Strontian, which has a tourist information centre, supply store, hotels, a post office, police station, petrol station, camp site and doctors' surgery. The village lies on the shore of Loch Sunart.

Strontian

Glenhurich Lodge is a wonderful escape. Close at hand are many outdoor pursuits, including walking, cycling, climbing, fishing (river, loch and sea), bird-watching, canoeing and star gazing on clear nights. A "walk on the wild side'" starts at the front door and there are wonderful walks to be enjoyed in the surrounding glens and hills, ranging from leisurely Lochside walks to stiff climbs to gain the magnificent views of Lochs and mountains from the ridges.

Those interested in the local fauna will find this a perfect paradise. Deer (red, roe, fallow and muntjac), pine martins, wild cats, foxes, red squirrels and badgers roam the woodlands with otters along the watercourses. Bird lovers will find themselves in heaven, because in addition to many song birds, buzzards, osprey, etc, the area is one of the best landscapes to observe Scotland's largest raptors. Golden eagles can be seen soaring in the sky, often accompanied by mocking buzzards, and the spectacular white-tailed-sea-eagle, re-introduced in 1975, is becoming a common visitor to Loch Shiel. Glenhurich Lodge has its very own meandering burn, where brown and sea trout spawn in the late autumn.

Fishing in the area, both on the Lochs and along the rivers, is readily available at reasonable cost. There are also numerous hill Lochs in the area with good brown trout taken in warmer summer months. Fishing permits can be obtained for both Loch and river fishing locally.

Unique guided cruises can be booked on the stunning sheltered waters of Loch Shiel. Bonnie Prince Charlie used this waterway to reach Glenfinnan and start his 1745 Jacobite quest to reclaim the British throne for his family. Follow the Prince's journey to Glenfinnan while learning about the history and geology of this beautiful part of the highlands. Share the local skipper's experience in spotting golden & sea eagles, red deer, black-throated divers and a variety of other rare wildlife.

Live music can be enjoyed at the Sunart Centre, (Àrainn Shuaineirt), in Strontian, a thriving community centre, which houses a magnificent concert hall, conference facilities, library and sports centre. Check their events calendar listings for live music concerts and cinema.

Some 30 miles away by road is the outdoor capital of the highlands, Fort William and nearby Ben Nevis, which boasts world-class mountain biking and skiing in winter at Aonach Mor, and the start of the Road to the Isles.
