Viking Cottage description

Holiday home
Viking Cottage is a detached cottage in a fabulous position in the heart of the tiny coastal village of Glenuig, and affords breathtaking views over the Sound of Arisaig. Located next door to the pub, 100 yards from the shop, church and village hall, and a stone's throw from the safe and sheltered sandy bay, Viking Cottage is a restful retreat set in beautiful surroundings. The cosy accommodation includes four bedrooms, a fitted kitchen, a sitting room with a woodburner and a dining area. The cottage is a lovely base from which to explore the walking, wildlife (including otters, deer, eagles and occasional porpoises), birdwatching, fishing, golf, and water sports of this wonderful area.

Area
The Sound of Arisaig is a Marine Conservation Area, which is home to Glenuig village that faces west towards the little Isles of Eigg, Muck, Rum and Canna. Maerl, which is a type of seaweed only found in unpolluted waters, and other intriguing flora and fauna can be found in this unspoilt area. Gelnuig is a tiny community with a population of just over 30, and is situated in the Parish of Moidart in remote and secluded West Lochaber, which includes the neighbouring settlements of Samalaman and Alt Ruadh. There are only 25 dwellings in the village - and four of those are holiday homes. If you're looking for a peaceful antidote to the hustle and bustle of modern living, this is it.

Region
From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.

Beautifully appointed cottage in a stunning location. There was nothing the owners hadn't thought of. We would recommend Viking Cottage without reservation.

Viking Cottage was a home from home. It was warm, spotlessly clean and had all the facilities you could want. It was in a lovely position overlooking the bay and so peaceful. The owner was friendly and gave us information on the area. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend staying here.

What can I say? Magnificent views, lovely accommodation...it was perfect. The weather made our stay even more special, but the house is lovely and has everything you could possibly need. Right next door is the Glenuig Inn, where you can get lovely food and great service. They allow the dog in so even better. I cant say enough good things about this house and location. There are no street lights in Glenuig so when you are out at night with the dog, the sky is just magnificent. We will definately be back.
