Camus na h-Airdhe

Loch Sunart, near Strontian, Argyll


Part of the spectacular Laudale Estate that stretches along the south shore of Loch Sunart, Camus na h-Airdhe (pronounced camus na hay riv) was built sometime in the 1800’s to hold sheep, cattle and goats before they were taken to market by boat. Meaning ‘the bay of the walled enclosure, some parts of the old wall remain behind the building.

First occupied by a family who traded from it, it became a store for estate trade and finally an office for a fish farm before it was fully restored in 2011 and purpose built to offer a romantic holiday house for one couple. It has been virtually fully booked since becoming available in April 2011.

The front door of the cottage opens into an open plan well-equipped kitchen with dining and sitting area and a log fire, and double doors that open on to a patio with superb views over the Loch.

 All on one level, the comfortable elegantly furnished double bedroom is tucked away at the end of the house and a modern, luxurious shower room completes this very special cottage.

Outside, in addition to the terrace, there is a fenced garden screened off to the road by a high wall. The buildings behind the cottage are just used for storage.

 Strontian is just 10 minutes away by car and has a selection of shops and a number of good eating and watering holes. The Mull ferry is only 30 minutes drive away.
