Tigh an Aullt Cottage - Sleeps 6
This 3 bedroom bungalow is the highest of all the houses in the township of Allt na Chruine. Its peace & tranquillity needs to be experienced to be believed. The views of the surrounding mountains, streams and loch are splendid in their grandeur and keep you forever looking out of the windows!
There is a special visitor that comes in the evenings, the Pine Marten! To ensure a visit put out bread and butter with strawberry jam, either on the ground or on the table. There is an outside light that is switched on beside the patio door, this does not worry the Pine Marten.
As you enter the sitting room there are 2 large leather sofas with occasional tables: opposite the sofas is the TV/DVD player/Video Player and the Stereo system. There is an open fire. In the dining room you will find a collection of DVDís & Video’s. At the far end of the sitting room there is another set of 2 sofas & a chair with an occasional table. This is a great space to chill out; listening to music & talking whilst looking at the wonderful loch view.
The telescope in the sitting room allows you to see Dolphins, Seals, Porpoises, Otters, and Birds close up. The Eagle is seen sometimes soaring above the cottage, and if you are lucky, Harriers and Peregrines are viewed.
The modernised kitchen with newly fitted gas hob & electric cooker. There is a breakfast bar overlooking Loch Duich & Mam Ratagan. A dishwasher beside the sink and plenty of built in cupboards are equipped with everything that is needed to cater for up to 6 people. A door leads to the utility room which contains the washing machine/tumble dryer/fridge/freezer units, and there is also a useful large sink for cleaning the kids sandy beach gear.
A large separate dining room with a large pine table which seats 6 and has a large welsh-dresser which contains all the glassware and DVDs.
