Ceol-na-Mara (Gaelic for Music of the sea) cottage is situated on the shore of Loch Kishorn offering superb loch views to the Applecross Mountains and in the distance the Cuillin mountains of Skye. This traditional Highland cottage has been fully modernised, affording self catering guests the convenience and comforts of home on the inside, together with the magical beauty of the Western Highlands on your doorstep and an ideal centre for boating, fishing, hill-walking, climbing, wildlife, seal spotting, cycling and relaxation.
The picturesque crofting village of Kishorn is set in one of the most dramatic and beautiful, tranquil corners of the West Highlands of Scotland. Kishorn is a sleepy little village, quiet and unspoilt, with traditional houses scattered along the shore and neighbouring hillsides. The craft shop in the village "Patterns of Light" sells local crafts and paintings. The owner makes and sells dreamcatchers and does workshops - great for adults and children on a wet day (you would need to book though).
The cottage is situated within easy reach of many places of interest along the West Coast. Nearer to home, the award winning Kishorn Seafood Bar is open during the summer months and, very popular with tourists and locals alike, is approximately a mile from the cottage. There is a wealth of art/craft studios in the local area, including two well-known artist's studios in Kishorn itself.
Lochcarron, which is approximately 6 miles to the east of Kishorn, has a restaurant, three hotels and a café. The Spar supermarket for groceries and papers and Maclennan's butchers for meat and fish, (they also visit Kishorn twice a week in their van). The village also has a bank, petrol station and a doctors surgery. In Torridon, there is a Countryside Centre devoted to red deer and other wildlife in the area.
