This charming 19th century cottage has been sympathetically renovated, combining original features and traditional Highland décor with contemporary elements, resulting in a cosy and exceptionally stylish holiday property. The open-plan ground floor features a cosy sitting area with wood burning stove, a sleek modern kitchen with stone worktops and a bold contemporary staircase with steel rails and oak treads. A mix of period and modern furniture, paintings and solid oak flooring creates a homely but elegant space.
The kitchen is well equipped with everything you might need for cooking up a feast, as well as plenty of decent wine glasses and crockery. The all important bootroom has space for all your outdoor gear as well as dog beds. Heating and hot water provided are by a biomass log boiler that runs on waste timber from the estate, ensuring the house is always warm and eco friendly too.
To the rear of the house there is a large private garden which is securely fenced. There are swings and a' tree house' slide to keep the children amused. A shallow stream runs through the garden with a waterfall that cascades over a stone wall, providing a wonderfully peaceful background for outdoor eating or relaxing with a drink. The games room (shared with Stalker's Lodge) has a pool table, table tennis and darts, perfect for wet weather days and evening entertainment.
Keeper's Cottage can be rented together with Stalker's Lodge next door which has a dining table big enough for 10 - perfect for two families holidaying together or an extended family group.

Upstairs there are two spacious double bedrooms featuring designer wallpaper and antique furniture. The comfortable Hypnos beds are made up with feather duvets and fine white cotton linen, ensuring a good night's sleep.
The bathroom has a magnificent vintage roll top bath as well as a separate modern shower. Little luxuries like thick cotton towels and organic soaps and bubble bath by the Highland Soap Company make bath time a pleasure.
The bedrooms have lovely views out the front, across the rolling fields of sheep to the loch and hills beyond.
