Achnandarach, Plockton

Craigmoss Highland Homes - Taigh Gael

| Ref: SWWE
Grade 4 Star rating

Craigmoss Highland Homes lie in a hamlet enjoying spectacular views over the west coast to the Isle of Skye and Raasay. Parth-Galen (ref. SPPA), one of a pair, is set in a large garden with many woodland walks from the door and a sea loch close by, and is perfect for a quiet, relaxing break or as a base to enjoy wonderful scenery and exhilarating outdoor pursuits. Taigh Gael (ref. SWWE) also one of a pair, is an architect designed property, set with its own garden and has been specifically designed to meet the needs of the holidaymaker. The cottages are situated in the small village of Achnandarach, whose name means ‘forest wind’, and nearby there are stunning views over to Raasay, Skye and the mountains beyond. Set within a tranquil area so peaceful, guests are wakened by a dawn chorus of song birds. For the active, sailing, kayaking, mountain biking, fishing and hill walking are particularly popular with Torridon and Kintail only a short journey away. There are many fine low level and coastal walks in the area where otters and birdlife can be spotted and the local sandy beaches are fantastic. Plockton is a picturesque village on the shore of Loch Carron with many shops, galleries and fabulous eateries with especially good fresh fish, and is regarded by many as the most attractive village in the West Highlands. Locally landed seafood and Plockton brewed ale can be enjoyed all year round in several nearby inns and restaurants. Plockton is an area with interests for everyone, and is also a popular destination for visitors in the summer months, particularly during its long established, small boat sailing regatta fortnight in August, but is quiet through the rest of the year. Visitors can enjoy the romantic Eilean Donan Castle, the Lochalsh Woodland Garden at Balmacara maintained by the National Trust, or the remote coastal settlement of Applecross reached by a memorable journey over the highest road in Scotland. At nearby Kyle of Lochalsh there is the bridge over to the beautiful Isle of Skye which boasts spectacular mountain, cliff and seascapes and some unique geological formations. From there, take a boat trip to spot seals, dolphins or whales or to visit the elusive and magical Loch Coruisk in the heart of the Cuillin Mountains. Visit the Talisker Distillery or one of the many artist studios or enjoy a meal at the world famous Three Chimneys restaurant. Swim and picnic at the enchanting Fairy Pools. An excellent base to tour the surrounding area only a short drive to Glenelg, Applecross and the Isle of Skye. Visit historic sites, Glenelg Brochs, Eilean Donan Castle, gardens, Kylerhea Otter Hide and Bealach na Ba (one of the most dramatic roads in Britain). Activities include swimming, boat trips, pony trekking and so much more…an idyllic holiday base. Shops and pub 2 miles.
