Sorry No Pets Allowed

Sealight is located near the village of Strontian and enjoys a fabulous shoreline location with beach access and views across Loch Sunart. This unique property is architecturally striking and designed to take full advantage of the views. This part of western Lochaber offers some of the most spectacular scenery in Scotland and an abundance of wildlife. The property makes a perfect choice for a family holiday or for a romantic retreat.  

Inside the property certainly has the wow factor with floor to ceiling windows, vaulted ceilings with exposed beams and a modern open plan layout. Beautifully furnished in a contemporary style, and equipped to the highest of standards, the accommodation offers a change from the more traditional holiday cottages usually available.

The accommodation is on two levels with the majority of the rooms enjoying either a garden or sea view. The main living accommodation is on the ground level, as is the twin bedroom, a utility room, and a family bathroom. Upstairs the mezzanine area gives views to the lounge and kitchen below, and access to the master bedroom with its en-suite shower room. An additional sitting area is also available on this level, ensuring that no matter the size of your party, a quiet spot can be found to relax.

Outside a decked area is situated at the front of the house, and from here direct access to the garden and the beach can be obtained. The owner has also provided garden furniture and a barbecue, ideal for a spot of alfresco dining after a day exploring, or simply to relax and enjoy the beautiful views of Loch Sunart. There is a good chance of spotting otters on the beach, sea eagle and golden eagle or a  pine martin having an evening stroll on the deck all from the comfort of the house, telescope provided but bring your binoculars to add to the experience. There is also a very good wildlife hide just a few miles west of the house.

Within walking distance of the property a small restaurant and pub can be found, however for a larger choice Strontian itself offers is located just two miles away. The village offers a good range of facilities for the visitor, including a selection of cafes, hotel restaurants, a general store and a tourist information centre. The Ardnamuchran area offers much for the visitor including an abundance of wildlife, quiet country roads for walking and cycling and some of the most beautiful scenery in Scotland. Various wildlife boat trips are available and day trips to the small isles are within reach. For those guests looking to visit Mull, the property is ideally suited for a day trip, travelling on the Kilchoan or Lochaline ferry which is located within an hours’ drive.

Please note the shortest and best route to the property would be to take the Corran Ferry from Corran which is located nine miles south of Fort William to Ardgour, a link to the timetable for this ferry can be found here

Fantastic property, fantastic location. We couldn't have asked for anything more really, the kitchen was by far the most catered for kitchen we've come across and we've stayed in a few. Pine Martens every night without fail, plenty of wildlife and great cycling with traffic free roads too. Great week and we will return very soon.

Our second stay here - which should say all that's necessary (who would return to somewhere that wasn't a great place to be?) The only thing I'd say is, if you're not happy with peace and quiet, a fair bit of driving, walks in the rain and midge-avoidance tactics - it's not the place for you! The cottage is clean, incredibly well-equipped and has water-side views; enough said.

We loved this house. Wonderful remote location with a lovely outlook onto Loch Sunart. The house itself is a wonderful design and has everything you could ask for. If we were back in the Western Highlands again, I would not hesitate to book this house. If you are looking for peace and quiet in comfort, this fits the bill.

Lovely house, very well appointed and perfectly situated overlooking loch sunart. Lots of lovely walks nearby and easy access to Mull. We had Pine Martens on the decking every night! Great sightings, highly recommend.

We stayed at Sealight for two weeks in August 2015, the property is modern, very well equipped and tastefully decorated. The views from Sealight are splendid looking out to the loch and to the mountains beyond, The surrounding area is quiet, lots of good walks and climbs and an abundance of wildlife, we saw deer, pine martins, birds of prey and in the loch, seals and porpoises. We have stayed in many holiday cottages across Britain over the last ten years but Sealight is certainly the best, we would definately holiday there again.

Just.......wonderful! Fantastic house, EVERY mod-con, light and roomy with views to die for - what more can we say? We are hoping to return again in 2016 - can't get a better recommendation than that! (Only 'warning' to other guests - we had O2 and Orange/EE phones - neither of which had reception on most of the peninsula; occasionally we noticed that the 'Vodafone' network was available - but that was also patchy. The wifi was BRILLIANT at the house - so we used Skype to keep in touch with family - but best not to rely on phone/text!)

Just........WOW. A FABULOUS holiday home, with all the trappings you could POSSIBLY want for a luxurious stay in a peaceful and beautiful area of Scotland. Kitchen had just about everything imaginable (AND some!), living areas were to die for (my favourite 'bit' was the sun room; my other half just loved the reading area on the mezzanine) and the beds were comfy and warm ( a little TOO warm, we found....... beautifully luxurious duvets!). This would NOT be the place for anyone seeking 'nightlife' - but it was perfect for us as a 50-something couple, looking to 'get away from it all' and treat ourselves to a little luxury. LOADS of room for parking car(s); lockable area for bikes; decking area across the full width of the back of the house, overlooking the loch and hills on the far side. I literally can't find anything to fault (unless there's a miracle cure for midges.......they DID mean that it was tricky to have windows open or sit outside in the evening - but we accepted this would be a problem in deciding to book here in the first place!) Thank you to the owners for sharing their holiday home with us - we had a wonderful holiday and would LOVE to come back! (LOADS of pics taken - but no facility to upload them here)

Beautiful house with every mod con in a stunning setting, hills still had snow, peaceful and quiet, just right for a lazy week away from work. Weather was sunny and warm and we didn't have a coat on all week, considering it was 14th - 21st March that was amazing. Highly recommended.

An exquisite setting for an outstanding house. We loved the views from every room, the peacefulness and being able to potter out to the beach for shells each day. The owners have catered for everything possible including food for the birds ! The underfloor heating ( our stay was over Xmas ) was delightful and cosy. We didn't want to leave !

What a superb property. Stayed here at the beginning of Feb 2014 and had a fantastic time. Beautifully fitted with everything you could ask for - the log burner was great. Amazing views over the loch from the property as well. We had a good explore around the area and the Ardnamurchan Peninsula and I have to say that this is probably the nicest property in the area, the owners have done an excellent job. Great place and great area to get away from the stress of life - would highly recommend!
