3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Acharacle, Argyll and Bute, Scotland
Laundry Cottage nestles in the picturesque hamlet of Shielfoot – a short distance from Acharacle. It forms part of an old servants block and has been tastefully renovated, retaining many original features. It is set on a quiet single track road a short drive from Castle Tioram.

This spacious three bedroom home is ideal for families, friends or couples who want a blissful break in the north of Scotland.

Can we bring our dog?

Yes, we find dogs and their people love exploring the beaches and countryside. In the kitchen we provide a bed and blanket, and a food bowl. Please take care to keep dogs on the lead where there are sheep, and watch out for cattle grids. We ask that dogs stay downstairs during your visit. We allow one dog free of charge, and have a cleaning charge of £10 for every additional dog.

Laundry Cottage may be slightly 'old school' but touches like a kitchen pulley for drying wet clothes from walking and a log/coal fire (central heating/radiators also available) make it homely and welcoming. With 3 double/twin rooms pleasantly decorated and furnished and a well equipped and...More

Getting around
You'll need a car to get around. There is a bus service but it isn't frequent or designed with tourists in mind. The area is perfect for cycling as the roads are quiet and generally well maintained, and there are lots of scenic walks both from the cottage itself or the surrounding area.
