Excellent spot for kayaking - easy access to water. Lovely wooded walks nearby. Extremely well fitted place with everything we needed.
We have stayed in some spectacular houses and Tigh na Creagan did not disappoint. It seems NOTHING was overlooked to make our stay comfortable. Home from home indeed and the location - WOW - wish we’d booked for 2 weeks! That’s the best log burner we’ve ever had!
This was our fourth year at Tigh Na Creagan and I have already booked for next year. Can’t praise the accommodation, location and vendor enough! Everything thought of to make your stay as pleasurable as possible. Getting a week of sunshine was an added bonus. A trip to the new distillery further down the peninsula was very interesting and we all enjoyed the samples too! We can’t wait to see how your revamp goes.
Tigh Na Creagan was all we had hoped: well-equipped, well-cared for, and beautiful. The home, situated on Loch Sunart, offered impressive views at all times of the day. We were never lacking for things to do, as the owners supplied bikes, walking maps, recommendations and many ideas to fill our time. Although the weather was not gloriously sunny all the time, we had more than enough activities to fill our week there. Beautiful scenery, abundant wildlife, congenial locals, and delicious food. What a vacation!
We travelled to Tigh Na Creagan with a large group of extended family, and it proved to be an excellent base for exploring the Ardnamurchan peninsula. We were looking for a cottage that was remote, yet accessible, and would provide enough space for a large group to spend a week comfortably, and we were not disappointed.The house sits in its own extensive garden overlooking the jetty in Salen Bay, and has nice views of the bay and the hills surrounding Loch Sunart. Although the house is accessible by road, the grounds are large enough to make the property feel secluded and private.The jetty provided us with a convenient starting point for a memorable boat trip to Tobermory where we observed porpoise, dolphins, seals and a whole host of birds. The road behind the house was quiet and facilitated early morning runs to Laga, as well as being a starting point for an excellent day trip hitch-hiking to Sanna, which hosts one of Europe’s most remote and beautiful wild beaches.Ardnamurchan is a beautiful part of the highlands, and Tigh Na Creagan is perfectly situated for exploring it. The house also provides the perfect environment to simply eat, relax and enjoy the views.
We holidayed here in Summer 2011 and it will forever be a most treasured and beloved place (5 adults and 3 children ages 4, 7 and 9). The most wonderful setting and the most stunning views. House lovely … views onto the loch and very well equipped! Nikki recommended a local fisherman who sold us the freshest and most delicious Langoustines straight from the loch… fantastic (as was the price!). Lovely biscuits and welcome pack on arrival! Sanna Bay was stunning with white sands, glorious sunshine, blue skies and… freezing water! It was our last big family holiday together… as my father sadly, suddenly passed away the following October. Thank you Nikki for some lovely, treasured memories!
We rented the cottage for two weeks during which various members of our family joined us for a few days at different times. All the facilities required for self-catering were on hand – there was a large patio with table and chairs, four mountain bikes, an extensive garden with two lily ponds and a barbeque. The cottage was adjacent to a private jetty from which we were able to book a boat trip directly to/from the jetty to Tobermoray for the day…..this was an excellent trip taking in dolphin and seal watching and still allowing three hours at Tobermoray to have a superb fish lunch at the Fish Cafe and a browse of the local shops. A five minute walk from the cottage takes you to the Salen Hotel and here too superlatives apply….they arranged for us to have a lobster dinner with langoustines and it was presented wonderfully and tasted delightful…..bar lunches were also of a very high quality and the staff were without exception very helpful and informative. We enjoy walking and were well served with oak wood walks about ten minutes from the cottage – these taking us to the other side of Loch Sunart. Other sightseeing included a couple of visit to the white sands of Sanna beach – breath taking and a tour of the Ardnamurchan lighthouse – this representing the most westerly point in the UK mainland. Whilst the roads in the area are narrow and twisty it was never a problem in touring around the area. And, if all that was not enough, the weather over the two weeks was superb – sunny and long days (getting dark around 11:15pm). The cottage and the area around cannot be recommended enough!
Fantastic setting with a warm and friendly welcome from the owners. They had thought of everything right down to fresh flowers, fruit,and a lovely freshly made cake. The house was warm and has a real friendly feel about it. In our party there were 4 adults 3 teenagers and 2 eight year old girls oh and not forgetting the family dog Jazz. There was plenty of space for us all and loads for the kids and adults to do.Within easy reach was Fort William (Morrisons supermarket) fantastic beaches,and breath taking views around every bend. Going back August 2012 and cannot wait.
