Clachandubh dates back to the early 1800s, it is located on its own by the burn beside a fabulous old bridge. Quiet and peaceful but only a 15 minute drive to the coast and perfectly positioned to visit the Islands. The cottage has been totally up graded from top to tail with two twins, a twin/super-king and a new en-suite bathroom. A well equipped new large family bathroom and new kitchen. Also a spacious sitting room with wifi, flat screen TV, DVD, docking station and dining area with plenty of seating gathered around a large open fire.

The local area has an abundance of wildlife with ospreys nesting on the loch near the cottage. As guests on the estate you are free to explore this area of outstanding natural beauty.
