Welcome to Duart Cottage!
Duart is our self catering holiday property and stands in the centre of Lochcarron village in an attractive south-facing position looking across Loch Carron towards Attadale.
The foreshore of the loch is only a few steps away from the front door of the cottage, literally just on the other side of the road. All the local village amenities - pub, shops, restaurants, etc. - are within easy walking distance.
Lochcarron is an excellent base for those who wish to tour the north west Highlands with the whole of Wester Ross, Lochalsh and the Isle of Skye all being within easy reach for days out. Near at hand are such popular places as Applecross, Shieldaig and Plockton whilst the Skye Bridge (now thankfully toll-free!) is just 30 minutes' drive.
Those who enjoy walking, climbing or cycling really are spoilt for choice as there are a good many paths and tracks within a comparatively short distance of the village. There are circular walks, linear walks from Glen Carron through to Glen Torridon and Munro-baggers will find several peaks to tick off their lists. There is more information in our Tourist Information section.
The whole local area is one of magnificent coastal and mountain scenery, some of the finest in Europe, and abounds with wildlife. There are regular sightings of otters in Loch Carron as well as the occasional dolphin or porpoise and, despite being generally regarded as something of a rarity in the UK, pine martens are also to be seen, as also are golden eagles and sea eagles. It is therefore advisable to come equipped with binoculars and camera!
We hope you will enjoy browsing our website and viewing the wonders of this beautiful area. However, in order to appreciate it fully, you really need to take a holiday here!
