‘Cnoc Aluinn’ means ‘beautiful hill’.
The house is comfortable all year round, with an open plan design, real wood floors, and spectacular views of the landscape. The central heating includes under-floor heating and a wood burning stove downstairs and radiators upstairs. Large picture windows (5x2m) face south east, surveying the extensive and beautiful garden, looking out over the loch and beyond. Whatever the weather and season, views are captivating and ever changing, often with rainbows!
Landscape views from every vantage
The kitchen, dining area, hall and lounge are open plan, looking out onto the upper water garden. The lounge is slightly separated from the dining area, allowing people to share an activity or divide in to groups. Children can play while grandparents read a newspaper and others relax with a drink.
What amazing views. We have had a lovely stay. The house is a delight to stay in with everything you could need and more, a real home from home. Thursday Steak Night at the Bistro is a must (just be sure to book)

Experience the environment at any time
The sofa and easy-chairs are always comfortable, and convenient to enjoy the FreeView television or free WiFi internet.
The kitchen is fully fitted with fridge freezer, electric oven and gas rings, microwave, espresso coffee maker and dishwasher. It is spacious and fully equipped with cooking utensils, cutlery and crockery.
The "blue" master bedroom is on the ground floor. It is a large room with a king sized pocket-sprung bed. Another picture window and ample storage space make it a secluded hide-away, despite being adjacent to the front door and potential bustle of the main rooms. The floor in this room is real maple. It has its own en-suite shower room.
Spaces for each guest
Upstairs there are two twin rooms, again with good views, a family bathroom with a large bath and separate shower. The "red" bedroom has a real beech floor and three windows. The “green” room is carpeted with two windows.
There is a third toilet in the utility room on the ground floor, near the washing machine and tumble drier. This utility space, with the most often used external door is also good for changing boots and washing shells found on the beach while you decide if you want to take them home.
The garden is very private, covering the best part of an acre. It has several ponds and water features, grass, and flowering bushes including a large variety of rhododendrons, primulae and other flowering shrubs and trees. There is car parking for up to three vehicles.
The house has beds for 6 people in 3 rooms. With large public rooms, three toilets, and a style that was built to be lived in, this house is a luxury rarely available on the holiday market.
