Superb loch and mountain views
Nestling against the side of the hill with panoramic views across the waters of Loch Long and towards the beautiful mountains, Otters Drift makes the perfect base for exploring this lovely part of the Highlands. Just 2 miles from the picturesque village of Dornie and the romantic Eilean Donan Castle and approximately a 15 minute drive to Kyle of Lochalsh, the gateway to the Isle of Skye. This detached bungalow offers a peaceful holiday base with so much to see and do on the doorstep. Climbing and hill walking in the nearby Five Sisters of Kintail, fishing and sea cruises, pony trekking and mountain biking are just a small selection of activities available in the area. For the less energetic you can sit in comfort and enjoy the ever changing views. Breathtaking, unspoilt scenery and an abundance of wildlife add to the ’west coast’ experience which many enjoy. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

Customer Reviews of Otters Drift Cabin, Dornie, Sleeps 6-8
1st comment: This is a really lovely cottage - we hadn’t realised quite how remote it would be, but so long as we planned and shopped in advance (the Co-op at Kyle was a godsend and stayed open late), this was not a problem and the peace and quiet added to our enjoyment. The DVD and book library were impressive and a great help on a wet day. July 2011.
2nd comment: The facilities within the cottage were excellent. Kitchen had everything you wanted, living area and bedrooms were warm and cosy. The information provided by the owner was excellent and allowed us to visit places we didn’t know existed. Wonderful views from the cottage and nice walks in the surrounding area. Not too keen on the single track road at night but theres not a lot that can be done ! Overall an exceptional property that I would recommend to anyone. Oct 2010.
3rd comment: A delightful property in a very attractive situation. Very well equipped. Peaceful and quiet location. Many thoughtful extras including a surprise welcome gift. A place we will certainly return to if we visit the area again. Sept 2010.
4th comment: Very well appointed and equipped, in a wonderfully peaceful location. April 2010.
