Breathtaking location overlooking Lochcarron
This traditional detached stone cottage enjoys a truly spectacular setting, perched right on the edge of the rocks with the waves of Lochcarron lapping beneath. Otters and seals can be seen regularly from the large picture windows.
Uninterrupted views of the surrounding mountains and over the sea to Skye, serve as a stunning backdrop. This exceptional property is set in its own pretty garden, leading straight down to the rocks and shingle beach. The area is renowned for its wildlife, superb scenery and unspoilt coastline.

Customer Reviews of Otter Cottage,nr. Lochcarron, sleeps 6
1st comment: The property was warm, comfortable and homely. Oct 2010.
2nd comment: A well presented, spotlessly clean cottage. The cottage facilities, garden and marvelous views made the holiday one of the best we have had in the UK. A great base for touring but we spent 4 of our days at the cottage just looking at the views and fishing. Our dog loved it and was swimming in the sea each day. Excellent local shops only 5 miles away. May 2010.
3rd comment: Great Location. Wonderful views. Everything we needed for a fantastic family holiday. March 2010.
4th comment: Absolutley beautiful, peaceful and quiet. March 2010.
5th comment: This property more than lived up to our expectations. The owner came to ’show us the ropes’, friendly and courteous and most helpful. Especially his ’Avon’ anti-midge recommendation from the Spar shop. June 2009.
6th comment: We had the most amazing week. The cottage was perfect and had everything we needed and the surrounding area is stunning. Fantastic place for adults, children and dogs! I would love to return. Feb 2009.
7th comment: Fantastic views across the mouth of Lock Carron to the mountains on Skye. When the sun shines walks from the very door step allow views of maybe the very best part of the Highlands. Oct 2008.
8th comment: The directions overall were fine, would suggest adding just left of the phone box, we went to the wrong turning point which was 100 metres passed the cottage, sign for cottage was out of view from road. May 2008.
9th comment: This is without exception, the best holiday cottage break we have taken. The location is breathtaking. I found the owner to be extremely easy to talk to and provided valuable information on where to visit and where to eat. We will be booking it again. March 2008.

12th Comment This has to be the most fantastic view from a holiday property that we have ever experienced. Otters swimming in front of the door on a regular basis with the Coulins on Skye as a fantastic backdrop. Brilliant. June 2007.
13th Comment An absolutely stunning view from the sun lounge, lots of wildlife to be seen. Lucky enough to see a golden eagle on our excursions. Sept 2006.
14th Comment This is an outstanding cottage in a stunning location. Very thoughtful touches (e.g. binoculars in sun room). Owners checked we were OK but were not intrusive. Aug 2006.
