Ardoch Bothy sits in an elevated position overlooking Loch Kishorn and the Isle of Skye. The  property is a perfect base for exploring the surrounding west coast area, including the Applecross peninsula, the Isle of Skye, Torridon and Gairloch. This unique property has recently been completed and is perfect for a couple, a single person, or a couple with a young baby.

The spacious open plan design incorporates the sitting room, kitchen and bedroom. Stylishly furnished and equipped to a high standard including a wood burner, guests can relax and enjoy the views of the sea loch and the surrounding countryside from the large windows. Outside a pretty terraced area is ideal for those warmer summer nights.

Achintraid is neighboured by the village of Kishorn, which has a small craft shop and the renowned Kishorn Seafood Restaurant, which serves the best of the local catch. Further afield you will find Lochcarron and Shieldaig - Lochcarron being the larger offers a wider selection of facilities including a hotel bar and a couple of restaurants. Crossing the historic Bealach na Ba “pass of the cattle” which is the highest mountain road in the UK, takes you to Applecross, one of the most unspoilt and remotest areas in Scotland

I loved every minute of my stay at Ardoch Bothy. The views are to die for and the bothy itself is a delight. Everything so thoughtfully done - it was cosy, comfortable and inspiring. I can't wait to go back.

There are few places in Europe that you can be nearly isolated from the grey and boring common world, this is definitely one of those magic places! The house is very well decorated and comfortable! I think It will be very hard to find a cottage with this quality!

One of the most magical of holidays. Ardoch Bothy is exceptionally comfortable. We stayed here in January 2015 and it would be fair to say the weather was challenging but we loved every moment. The owners were very attentive in a non-intrusive way. Proof of the pudding is we are returning in June. This will become a regular holiday destination for us.

Awesome location and neat as a pin with all the modern conveniences. Located in Kishorn only few minutes drive from Loch Carron. The cottage is extremely peaceful with a great view of the water. I wish I hadn't been so busy with work to have time to enjoy it during daylight hours!

Ardoch Bothy was perfect. Everything one would need was there to make you comfortable. The view was incredible and the meadow of wild flowers between house and view added to the enjoyment. I would thoroughly recommend this beautiful cottage.

My wife and I had a wonderful long weekend (January 2012) in this absolutely idyllic cottage. It was exactly what we were looking for situated in an exceptional location and providing real cosy comfort for our last wee break together before our first baby. We now look forward to returning with our wee baby girl, Lauren, in the near future!

The perfect getaway location. The cottage has such stunning views to the front of Loch Kishorn which a person would never get tired of. It has been finished to a very high standrd throughout with little touches everywhere. A perfect location to explore the surrounding area too. Highly recommend.
