Property Description


Dolphin Cottage forms a most desirable detached cedar log property which lies in a stunning, southerly facing location on the shore of Loch Sunart, in the hamlet of Camas Inas on the Ardnamurchan peninsula. The property enjoys far reaching views across the loch to the Morvern Hills and benefits from direct access to the loch. The property was constructed from substantial British Columbian cedar logs and architecturally designed to capitalise on its location with picture windows and patio doors leading to a raised, lochside decking area. The semi open-plan living area, vaulted ceilings with exposed wooden beams and zoned underfloor heating with flag stone flooring throughout, are all most attractive features. This enviable location in the heart of the West Coast would make Dolphin Cottage a superb family home, idyllic holiday retreat or indeed an ideal self-catering opportunity in an extremely buoyant holiday rental market. The current owners have also indicated that they maybe willing to include the furniture subject to negotiation.

The Ardnamurchan peninsula is rich in history and a haven for wildlife lovers, walkers, climbers, water sports enthusiasts and those who enjoy a natural, unspoilt environment. The area boasts some of the most spectacular scenery in the Highlands and a diverse mix of wildlife. Local facilities, including a hotel and village shop, can be found in the nearby village of Salen (4 miles distant), whilst the nearby village of Acharacle supports an active community and offers the usual village amenities complete with a hotel, post office, tearoom and village store. In addition, there is a doctors’ surgery, several churches and a well-respected local primary school. There is a secondary school in the village of Strontian.
