Tor Fionn, Lochcarron

Sleeps 4 - WiFi - Pets Welcome

Short Breaks - Minimum stay 4 nights available

Torr Fionn is a beautiful cottage located on the sea front in Lochcarron village. The house enjoys views across the loch and makes an excellent base for exploring the north-west highlands and the Isle of Skye which is located just 25 miles away. Throughout the property is tastefully furnished and equipped to a good standard including wifi.

The accommodation at the property is on two levels. The sitting room has comfortable sofas, a flat screen TV and an open fire. The modern dining kitchen is spacious and offers direct access to the enclosed garden at the rear of the property, making it ideal for guests with children or those with a pet.

The kitchen is equipped with all the usual appliances and the dining table ideally placed to enjoy the views over the sea loch. Upstairs there are two bedrooms which both have traditional combed ceilings and views to the sea loch. The master has a double bed and the other twin beds. Completing the facilities is the bathroom which has a bath with shower over.  

The village of Lochcarron offers a good range of facilities for the visitor including a small supermarket, petrol station, cafes, restaurants and even a golf course. A couple of extremely popular places are the Lochcarron Bistro and the Waterside Cafe, which are both within walking distance of Torr Fionn.  Located not far from the village the Lochcarron Weavers shop, with its extensive range of luxury knitwear, kilts, tweed clothing and other goods is well worth a visit.

Lochcarron is located on the North Coast 500, a spectacular coastal route that runs to and from Inverness, venturing round the capital of the Highlands, up the West Coast and back via the rugged north coast. The route offers the chance to see some of the most magnificent scenery that Scotland has to offer, together with the opportunity of spotting the local wildlife and tasting some of the finest of Scotland’s larder.

From Lochcarron you have an extensive range of locations for days out and trips. A couple of recommendations would be to the Isle of Skye, or over the Bealach na Ba to Applecross, then take the coastal route through the small coastal villages of Cuaig, Arrina and Fearnamore, and stop off in the pretty village of Shieldaig. The scenery on the Isle of Skye is constantly changing, from the awe inspiring peaks of the Cuillin Mountains to the striking and unusual landscape of the Trotternish peninsula.

Tor Fionn is a comfortable and well thought out property, which enjoys a great village location and excellent views from all the rooms to the loch.

Tor Fionn is in an excellent location in the village, on the Main Street overlooking the loch. There is ample parking nearby, and an excellent shop just along the street. There is also a choice of places to eat within the village and nearby. The house is very comfortable with a good sized enclosed garden for our dog, and eating outdoors.

We had 7 days of sun sun sun and never saw a rain cloud. We ate out every lunch and dinner where dogs were welcome. We chose Tor Fionn as it was dog friendly. The back garden is supposed to be enclosed but our Hamish managed to escape for a while next door. Weather being so good we only breakfasted in the cottage which was very clean and had every facility one could wish for.. A home from home. We never visited a restaurant twice as there are so many. Opening times are dodgy with a lack of staff, so they have crazy hours. eg Torridon Hotel lunch is from !2.00 till !4.00.......we arrived at 13.50 and were refused . We can recommend the Walled Garden at Applecross and the Carron on east bank of Loch Carron. Driving, if you are not familiar with single track roads could be a bit daunting. Groups of motor bikes and numerous motor homes fight for passing places.

Superb cottage, in a fabulous location within the village with gorgeous view! Very clean, cosy and well equipped. Great location for many travelling to Plockton and Applecross near Attadale Gardens. Plenty of eating places and a well stocked Spar. Enclosed garden to the rear was great for our dog!

We have been visiting Lochcarron and this cottage for over 20 years and have always been happy with our stay. The cottage is warm and well equipped and is well placed for local restaurants and shops. There are lots of walks and places not too far away, including Skye and Torridon and a trip to Inverness and Beauly are an easy day trip. I say easy - you do need to be prepared for single track roads in poor condition.

The cottage is comfortable with everything we needed for a weeks holiday. The location is superb with a cafe, hotel/pub just down the road, an excellent bistro plus one of the best Spar shops around that also has a garage selling fuel. But the best bit - the awesome views from the front door ( and kitchen and lounge!) of the Loch. A lovely village with many walks on your doorstep. The people were so friendly and we would love to return.

The cottage was full of character overlooking the loch with snow capped mountain peaks directly behind. The village of Lochcarron has a good grocery store, petrol station and several good restaurants, so there was no need to travel far for supplies. It was a great location with a number of attractions close by. A secure enclosed garden was welcome as we took our Labrador who also thoroughly enjoyed swimming in the loch. We have stayed at another of your properties before and that too was also of an equally high standard. I would also add,as we did some extensive research,that Tor Fionn was very well priced considering it's amenities and location. We would thoroughly recommend a stay here as it was one of the most beautiful parts of Scotland we have stayed in.

Lovely cottage in a perfect location. Despite the awful weather for the first few days we were comfortable and warm. Great garden for the dog to roam around safely. Everything that you need is provided for and the property was warm and clean for our arrival. The bottle of milk and short bread biscuits when we arrived was a nice touch. A great base for visiting the attractions in the area. Hope to return sometime soon.

Fabulous little cottage in a beautiful village. Tor Fionn has everything you could possibly need, coal fire, electric blankets, best equipped kitchen anywhere I have stayed, beautiful views, pretty little back garden with table and chairs and lots of maps and useful local information. We had a lovely few days here. Do visit Atterdale gardens locally and Armadale gardens on Skye. Local craft shops sell nice things you will want not tat. We ate at the Bistro, Carron restaurant and Lochcarron Hotel. All very nice, local venison is superb.

Tor Fionn is a beautiful cottage in a beautiful location. The little kitchen was perfectly equipped - we even managed to bake a birthday cake! So many nice touches - the binoculars disappeared into the kids' room as soon as we arrived! Lots of nice walks in the area. We loved visiting Lochcarron weavers, Strome castle, the seal boat trip from Plockton and Eilean Donan castle - and so lovely to return to this cosy cottage and a real wood fire at the end of the day. Thank you so much!

The cottage was really lovely: very clean and very well-equipped. We really appreciated the little extras, like the shortbread,butter, milk, teabags and jam on arrival, and the washing up liquid, hand soap and toilet roll! It is well-located with lovely views over the loch and within an easy walk of the excellent local Spar shop. We had a lovely 3 nights there and just wish it could have been longer.

Nice, comfortable, spacious cottage on the seafront in the village of Lochcarron. It looked like it had been recently refurbished. It suited our needs - as a base for walking the hills to the north and south of Strathcarron - perfectly. Everything was as we wished.

We had a lovely stay in Tor Fionn. There was a warm welcome on arrival (oatcakes, jam, tea and milk) and all the arrangements (address, key etc.) were as agreed with Wilderness Cottages. The cottage is cosy, comfortable and well-equipped. The views from all the windows across Loch Carron are superb both during sunshine and when it rains. Shop/post office are in walking distance and Tor Fionn provides an excellent base for exploring Wester Ross. We did walking both in Loch Carron itself and munro walking (slightly further afield) and had a very nice visit to the Applecross peninsula. A great stay in a really nice cottage.
