Achnacarron Self Catering Boathouse
The house stands in secluded, south-facing grounds with its own loch frontage and is reached by about a mile of meandering private track (some potholes and not suitable for low suspension vehicles) which will bring you to this haven of peace and tranquillity. A hunting lodge stood on this site for several centuries until 1954. The current property is an architect-designed, expertly refurbished and most comfortable house, quite alone in its stunning lochside situation.
It is surrounded by lawned gardens and mature wooded areas and is sheltered by a variety of magnificent trees. There is parking alongside the house, which also has its own private pier, slipway and fishing rights. There is also access to a Canadian canoe, a kayak or a paddle board by arrangement are available for use included in the rental subject to signing the disclaimer. As you would expect in such a location there is an abundance of wildlife here, including deer, pine marten, red squirrels and otters and an even greater variety of birds, including barn owls and osprey.
Downstairs is bright, spacious and open plan, with a modern kitchen, dining and seating areas and wood-burning stove, together with a door to a decked seating area above the water. The master bedroom, with en suite facilities, is also on this level, along with a utility room, a further bathroom and drying room. Upstairs are a further double bedroom and cosy lounge, with a glass wall to provide panoramic views over the water, both of which have coombed ceilings. Furniture and fittings are of the highest quality throughout.
Small, intimate weddings can be arranged down on the shoreline against the beautiful backdrop of the loch and the owner has all the local contacts needed to set this up.

Double bedroom with en suite shower, WC and basin.
