The Old Cottage
Lochhournhead, Kinlochhourn, Highlands
Lochhournhead is situated at the head of Loch Hourn, approximately 2 hours drive west from Inverness and 1 1/2 hours north from Fort William. The 22 mile Kinlochhourn Road is accessed via the A87 west of Invergarry. This road is a single track road, taking you through dramatic scenery, passing the 1950s Quoich Hydro Electric dam and into the rough grounds of Knoydart.
Loch Hourn is a hidden gem, often referred to as fford-like, habitat to a wide range of sea birds, fish, seals, porpoise (dolphins) and outstanding hiking for all abilities. It is also a notable point on the Cape Wrath Trail.
The cottage extremely remote and is perfect for those wanting to get away from the stresses of modern day living. There are some challenging hill walks as well as some easier routes on old stalkers paths - all are in the most spectacular scenery and you will be rewarded by breathtaking views. Return from a day on the hills or on the water to relax in front of the wood burning stove in this very comfortable and cosy cottage.
