CROFTEND in Ross and Cromarty, a cottage in Highlands: CROFTEND exterior

CROFTEND Loch side cottage.

Croftend is ideal for those seeking a peaceful spot for a quiet holiday. It was a traditional stone built former croft house, but has been renovated to a high standard and reconfigured on one level to provide accommodation for four people.
The property, which is approached down a private vehicle track, stands alone overlooking Loch Shieldaig with uninterrupted views over the Loch. The Torridon Mountain range provides a dramatic backdrop.
The village of Shieldaig can be seen opposite with Shieldaig Island lying off-shore nearby. The Island has become a nest site for White-tailed Sea Eagles and these may be spotted from the sun-porch which has open views on three sides.
The house has been renovated with 'green energy' in mind. Atmospheric/Solar and PV. panels provide heating and hot water.
The original building is now one open-plan, vaulted ceiling room, The kitchen/diner is at one end with the comfortable sitting area at the other, where there is a Squirrel stove.
The family bathroom is equipped with bath and walk-in shower and is part of the new- build extension, which also contains the two bedrooms.
Adjacent to the property is a small harbour, ideal for launching canoes and there is a slip suitable for dinghy trailers.
Doireaonar is a crofting township. It provides a home for lots of wildlife and you are invited to explore the woodland, much of which is managed to encourage regeneration.
Seals, sea otters are often around the shore and rocks in front of Croftend, as are herons and visiting wildfowl.
There are many interesting places to visit and things to do around this most beautiful part of Scotland. The Torridon Deer Museum, The Beinn Eighe Nature Reserve, The Applecross and Gairloch Heritage Museums, not to mention Skye and Inverewe Gardens.
Doire-aonar can be reached along the Coast Road to Kenmore from the A896 south of Shieldaig.
