Laxdale Cottage

Price: from £500 per week sleeps 2

A truly remote cosy loch-side cottage

Laxdale Cottage is a remote fishing bothy, sitting about one mile from the main road in a grove of woodland on a hillside.

It is a truly isolated location, and was built in the 1900s with fishing in mind: it is only 50m from Laxdale Loch, the leading salmon fishery on the Estate. This is a productive fishery, and salmon and sea trout enter Laxdale to spawn in the up-stream gravel, after passing through the coastal Fincastle Loch and seapool. Because of its isolated location, Laxdale Cottage is not just for fishermen, and is popular with those who appreciate a truly remote and calm location.

Inside, the Cottage is well-equipped and has been maintained in a classic simple style, with wood panelled walls adding to the cosy ambience. On the ground floor there is a bathroom and separate toilet and a main double bedroom.

As our most remote location, Laxdale Cottage does not currently benefit from broadband/wifi.  Most mobile networks can be received.
