It is situated a stone's throw from the beach in the hamlet of Ardaneaskan and is just a few miles from the popular lochside village of Lochcarron. Lochcarron has a pub that serves real ale and good food, a well-stocked Spar supermarket with Post Office, a gallery/gift shop, several artists' studios, a very good bistro/restaurant and an award winning café.
Ardaneaskan is less than 10 miles from Strathcarron Railway Station (on the Kyle Line), is easily accessible by car and is a beautiful 2 hour drive from Inverness Airport.
The Isle of Skye is 30 miles round the other side of Loch Carron and the Highland mountains are within easy reach. The area offers great walking, cycling and touring with plenty of quiet coves, shorelines, hills/mountains and woods to explore. The beach by the cottage is a great place from where to explore the loch by kayak (if you have one and are confident paddling on open water). The Kyle Line, said to be one of the best railway journeys in the country, runs along the other side of Loch Carron. Lochcarron is on the south-western corner of the celebtared the North Coast 500 route .
