Traditional style holiday cottage situated in the small hamlet of Arrina overlooking Loch Torridon, Wester Ross - Scottish West Coast - Sleeps 4 - 1 Pet welcome (by arrangement) Log fire. 

Jura is a traditional cottage in the remote and un-spoilt hamlet of Arrina on the West Coast of Scotland, the property enjoys unrivalled views onto Loch Torridon and the mountains beyond. The semi detached house, with its open plan downstairs layout, has been simply furnished, and has a cosy feel with an open fire in the lounge, and is now available for self catering holidays.

The area has an abundance of wildlife, golden eagles, sea eagles, otters and seals, and if you are lucky you may catch a glimpse of the Red deer that are often spotted in the area. The local hill lochs offer the chance to catch some wonderful wild brown trout and the sea fishing is not to be missed.

For the walkers among you, the area offers some great walks, there are various mountain paths for you to enjoy, such as the walk from Arrina to Cuaig, from here you can enjoy the wonderful views across to the island of Rona, Raasay and the Isle of Skye or for the more adventurous, a longer walk across the hills to the village of Applecross. The Applecross Historical society also has its base here at Clachan, and is well worth a trip to find out about the history of the area. 

The food lover is also well catered for with some excellent places to eat locally. Shieldaig a short drive away is worth a visit, with its pub and Coastal Kitchen restaurant, they serve a selection of the days catch, straight from the pier to the table, along with some more traditional fayre. Why not pop in to Nanny’s, a traditional highland shop that for many years was the only shop in the area, now serving coffee and cakes and selling locally produced crafts, freshly caught seafood and smoked salmon.

A longer drive from the cottage is Applecross, with its well known hotel, pub and restaurant, together with the Walled Garden & Potting Shed restaurant situated in the grounds of Applecross House. For coffee and cake the Broch bar and Flower Tunnel cafe at the campsite is also worth a visit.  For those wanting something extra special the world famous Torridon Hotel is a short drive away and is always worth a visit.  The spectacular Inverewe Gardens are also within easy reach.

The cottage is in a superb position to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the Highlands, and the West coast sunsets.  This traditional house has had a restyle; the downstairs open plan layout makes it spacious and welcoming.

Charming cottage, friendly neighbours and stunning views, but the roads are not for the faint-hearted. If you like it remote and are a fearless driver, this is a great place to stay.

Warm and cosy cottage with wonderful views. Fairly remote(12 miles to nearest shop) but with very helpful neighbours and perfect for peace and quiet. Generously equipped but could do with knife sharpener and some new crockery and glasses and possibly a larger fridge freezer especially for four people.

With the open views onto an ever changing weather affected landscape/seascape, Jura was an excellent choice. Very pleased to view the colourful cottage from your advert - an excellent 'logo'.

Lovely cottage with stunning views. We had a very relaxing time, the children loved the freedom of being able to go exploring down at the burn. The scenary is breathtaking and there are lots of great walks right from your doorstep. Will definitely return.

The cottage was very comfortable, in an extremely beautiful location, good for walking, cycling, swimming and fishing. Really enjoyed our stay there. Was good to have a selection of games to play in the evenings, too.

Jura is a beautifully located and well-equipped pet-friendly cottage. There are wonderful drives to Applecross in one direction, with its lovely Inn for great food, and Sheildaig and Torridon in the other. We would certainly recommend it.

This cottage is a really lovely place. It is situated in a beautiful environment and it is very easy to feel completely at home. You wake up with an awesome view over Loch Torridon. The house itself is equipped with everything you can think of, a lot of books, games, kitchen instruments and so on. It is easy to make wonderful trips to the gorgeous closer and farer landscape. We enjoyed our stay a lot, thanks for a fantastic vacation!
