Tucked away in the small hamlet of Kishorn, the Lookout is a spectacular modern country home (completed in 2020). The house offers luxury accommodation for families or couples looking to get away from it all in a private and secluded setting, with views towards Loch Kishorn and the rolling mountains.  The mature garden being home to a variety of wildlife and the occasional deer can often be spotted.

Kishorn is an excellent base for exploring some of Scotland’s remote West Coast. Take the twisting journey up the mountain along the Bealach na Ba to Applecross, where you can follow the ring road around the peninsula around to Shieldaig. Less than an hour’s drive away is the Isle of Skye, so famous for its unique beauty that it has been used as the backdrop for many fantasy films, including the BFG and Stardust. Further afield Gairloch and north to Ullapool and the regions of the North West Highlands, make an ideal day trip. 

Furnished throughout with an eclectic mix of modern and traditional furniture, the property is arranged over two floors with the rooms enjoying views to the garden or towards the loch. The lower level offers spacious open plan accommodation, with direct access to the south and west facing patio and the mature garden. The kitchen is well equipped with all the usual appliances and the sitting room with its large windows an ideal place to sit and relax after a day exploring. Completing the facilities on this level is a double bedroom with woodland views and en-suite wet room, which can also be accessed from the hall and a utility room.

The two further bedrooms are located on the first floor; the master located to the west has a fabulous balcony and a beautiful en-suite shower room. The twin located to the side offers woodland views and a stylish en-suite Jack and Jill style bathroom. This level also has a large open plan area with a large south facing window at one end and comfortable seating, an ideal spot for a bit of reading or perhaps a board game.

Lochcarron (6 miles) is the area’s main village and is where you can the find local shops, restaurants and a cafe. Close by is the well known Kishorn Seafood Bar where it is possible to sample freshly caught fish and shellfish.  Within a short drive the village of Shieldaig with its picturesque setting, offers a couple of places for food and a small supermarket.

Nature lovers and adventurers will find plenty of things to do, with a range of excellent hikes available in the area.  For those looking for an organised experience, Shieldaig Adventures offer a range of activities, including kayaking, hiking and archery.

The Lookout Reviews

Excellent, newly constructed Passive House, extremely well kitted out. Homely pictures and touches gave a feeling of being honoured to share somebodies treasured home. Loved the visits from the deer in the neighbouring field, the ability to scramble down to the foreshore via the style at bottom of garden or walk less than a mile to the beach at Ardarroch where crab fishing, stone skimming and even swimming took place. Tried takeaway langoustine super box from Kishorn Fish bar again within walking distance. Stunning scenary and views. We are not ornithologists but we may have seen Sea Eagles near the Kishorn dry dock on the opposide side of the Loch. Unfortunateley wet feet when we used the stepping stones near Drochaid Mhor bridge. Watched the conveys of motorhomes on Bealach na Ba opposite on the North Coast 500 which goes past the entrance to this propoerty. Attempted (sucessfully) the circuit from house up nearly to the shore of Loch Torrodon, round to Applecross and back over the Bealach on a clear day in our campervan. Such beauty and views to Isle of Lewis, Skye, Rona, Ramsay to name but a few. Be warned a long day as you will wish to stop and savour the views. We took 6 hours with 2 hrs 45 minutes actual driving time on the single track with passing places road to do the 44 mile circuit, but well worth it.
