Glenview Cottage Achmore, Strome Ferry - No.1 for holidays in Scotland
Looking for a relaxing, stress free holiday amongst beautiful, spectacular scenery? Then come to Scotland where a warm welcome awaits you at Glenview Cottage.
Situated in the small rural hamlet of Achmore in Ross-shire, and surrounded by natural woodland and pine forests, Glenview cottage enjoys uninterrupted views of largely unspoilt natural habitat rich in wildlife. With plenty to see and do for all the family, Glenview’s location is ideal as a touring base.
The ‘tropical’ village of Plockton, with palm trees growing along the main street, is just 7 miles away. 11 miles away is the old fishing town of Kyle of Lochalsh, with the road bridge to take you ‘over the sea to Skye’, and just 8 miles away is surely one of the most famous castles to be found in Scotland, Eilean Donan. With its beautiful and romantic setting on the shores of Loch Duich, Eilean Donan Castle has been featured in many films over the years and is a popular venue for weddings.
There are plenty of amenities in the area, including golf, fishing, horse riding and even trips in a glass bottomed boat! In Kyle you can also enjoy the facilities of an indoor swimming pool at the Leisure centre but, if you just want to ‘head for the hills’ for a spot of walking or climbing and to take in the spectacular scenery, the Kintail, Cuillin and Torridon ranges are all practically on the doorstep!
When it comes to eating out, you will be spoilt for choice. There are a number of excellent award winning restaurants and pubs in the neighbouring villages and further afield, all serving some of the very best and freshest local produce cooked to mouth-watering perfection! The local shops are well stocked for all your self-catering needs with post offices and banks at hand too.
The city of Inverness, the ‘Capital of the Highlands’ and gateway to Loch Ness, is approximately 70 miles away and offers extensive shopping, entertainment and leisure activities with Inverness airport close by. But, why not sit back, relax and let the ‘train take the strain’- starting at Kyle, the train journey to Inverness will take you through some stunning scenery and don’t forget to keep a lookout for the herds of deer along the way!
