If you are the kind of couple who want a really dramatic escape, and a place that will stay with you forever, then Cuil Moss Cottage could be the one. We were won over by the views to Scotland’s most famous mountain – Ben Nevis from this secluded luxury former shepherd’s bothy.
Cuil Moss Cottage is nestled down its own driveway under Scots pine trees. The building has been given the full luxury treatment, with a contemporary interior that has kept all the charm of its former life as a croft haven. It’s a place with a relaxing atmosphere, where you can sit back in front of a log burning stove in the living room, with a tweed rug and comfy sofas. There is a free unlimited supply of kindling and wood, so you can relax and enjoy the complementary whisky by the fire.
There is a spacious kitchen dining room. We recommend you cook up the local shellfish – we’ve never tasted any nicer than that in Scotland. When the weather is fine, you can open the large concertina doors onto the patio area for a barbecue, or a glass of wine outside.
The sunny bedroom enjoys a romantic king-size four poster bed, with luxurious bed linen, and views from the windows, through to the woodland. In the bathroom, the luxury theme continues, with an enormous waterfall shower and double ended spa bath, all complimented with local Highland toiletries, fluffy bathrobes and slippers.
Once you step outside, you are right among Scotland’s rugged glens, remote beaches, and dramatic scenery. Making the most of the Dark Skies and abundance of Wildlife – in the grounds of the cottage you will find your own private wildlife watching – star gazing tower!
The cottage is five minutes from the Corran ferry, and well placed to explore Salachan Beach, only a stroll away, which captures a stunning view up to Ben Nevis – across to Glencoe and down to the Isle of Mull. There are also the hills and beaches of Ardgour and Ardnamurchan to find, the distilleries to explore, and a whole host of restaurants surrounding Fort William.
No wonder this cottage has achieved a 5 Star Visit Scotland Rating, and the highly acclaimed Green Tourism Gold award!!
