Guests with children - Please see note below

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

This house had all you could wish for excellent accommodation and so well furnished and equipped setting and views are a dream. Only disappointment was we could not get access to the beach because the gate had been bolted which could not be removed. A return visit is a must.

This was our first stay at Sealight and we were not disappointed in any way. It is a beautiful, large property with everything you could possibly want or need for a comfortable stay, and with a view to impress. The wildlife watching kept us busy, with birds, deer and pine martens. You will not be disappointed if you choose to stay at Sealight.

A stunning home away from home! The cottage is so cosy, comfortable and very tastefully decorated. The views from the bay windows are magical. We loved sitting on the comfy sofa, doing nothing but enjoying the view, with a roaring fire. The cottage is very clean and well equipped. The shower is powerful and the bed comfortable. The pine martens (at least 4) visited us each night and enjoyed their supper of eggs, jam and peanut butter sandwiches. What a treat! We also spotted the otter fishing in the bay. Lots of lovely woodland walks nearby and a wildlife hide a couple of miles away to watch seals sunbathing. Perfect house in a perfect location.

Sealight has the wow factor from the moment you open the front door. It is beautiful and very well equipped. The view from the decking is stunning. Pine marten visited every night. The area is so beautiful and the colour of loch Sunart changes by the hour, the view is never the same. The drive up from the South through Glencoe is one of the most breathtaking drives We have ever done. Before you leave stock up on a couple of days food as the nearest supermarket is a 15 mile drive and a trip on the Corran ferry away in Fort William. Saying that the local shop in Strontian is well stocked, just understandably more expensive. Go to Mull for the day, visit the Ncnnean distillery in Drimnin and have lunch at The Whitehouse in Lochaline. Sealight is the perfect house in the most perfect setting. A real get away from life holiday. A week is not enough.

Another fabulous week spent at Sealight. This is our third year here for hubby and I and second year my parents have joined us. We love this place so much, it's like coming home. As always it was beautiful and clean and warm. The weather for our week was lovely with mild weather and sunshine. Fabulous day spent on Mull in almost summer weather. The pine martins came every night and this year we saw sea otters in the bay in front of the cottage plus roe deer in the front meadow. The birds were beautiful and we struggled to keep up with feeding them! We have already booked it again for next year.

Exceptional property, absolutely top drawer. The view across the loch was beautiful, the weather changing the colours frequently. The underfloor heating kept the house incredibly warm & cosy. And there was the fire to enjoy too. Everything you could possibly need in the kitchen was provided. It was a real wrench to leave.

Returned to this magical place and had the most relaxing week. We had fantastic sunny, but cold days whilst the rest of the UK was suffering from "the beast from the east". The pine martens came onto the decking for their peanut butter sandwiches and we saw countless deer and buzzards. This wonderful property feels like home, we will return again next year.

The house was perfect in every way. The owners have thought of everything. It was very relaxing and comfortable with lots of space, and the view from the lounge was great, We enjoyed the lovely beach through the garden gate which opens out to the left for a longer walk when the tide is out, it was great to see the pine marten and all the birds so close to the house. We look forward to returning in the future.

I struggle to find the words to describe Sealight, it is a beautiful house in a stunning location with everything you could possibly need. It wraps itself around you as soon as you step inside. The weather was not kind to us but the Pine Martin visited every night for his nuts and Bread and Jam and we had a wonderful week enjoying the peace and quiet and the enjoyed the local hide and walks, along with visits to Oban and Inverness and other places.

We had a fabulous time at Sealight, the weather was very good, apart from the last 2 days, but did not stop us going out walking/ climbing. The house is amazing...everything you could need and cosy, we would defiantly stay again... lots to do if you like the outdoors. Don't know why we had to phone the caretakers as we did twice, but no answer on both occasions!

A dream of a house in a perfect location. We had a wonderful relaxing stay that even Storm Doris couldn't spoil. The property is in the perfect location and is the best equipped we have ever stayed in. We managed to get on the hills and had some wonderful trips further afield. The wildlife is amazing and the nightly visits from the Pine Martens made our holiday. We will definitely be back.

We had the most wonderful honeymoon at Sealight. We arrived at the end of October, staying for a week and unfortunately, this is the out of season period where most places are closed. However, Sealight has everything you could possibly need to have a lovely, chilled, warmly stay. From books to every kitchen utensil you can think of and even jigsaw puzzles/games, we were never bored! The log burner was our favourite part of the house and we loved having the fire burning every night whilst watching a movie! We came home very relaxed and refreshed. Exactly what we needed! We are hoping to come back for Christmas next year.

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.

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 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)

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.

Great place and great area to get away from the stress of life - would highly recommend!
