About Cam-Allt Na Mara

Cam-Allt Na Mara sleeps up to eleven guests in four bedrooms and sits in an enviable position on Scotland's West Coast, on the edge of Loch Carron. With spectacular views over Loch Carron and the mountains beyond, Cam-Allt Na Mara provides an ideal retreat for groups of friends with a keen interest in outdoor pursuits or families wanting to holiday together and explore this beautiful part of the Highlands.

The scenic Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh railway line runs past the front of the house. Made famous by Michael Palin and the “Great Railway Journeys”, this single track line only has three or four trains each day - if you see the train, make sure you give the driver, Donald a wave!

Lochcarron is a superb holiday destination for those who enjoy outdoor activities and want to explore this beautiful natural area by bike, car, foot or even kayak (three kayaks are provided for guests use). The area offers excellent cycling routes including off-road routes for mountain bikers and superb hill walking with a great mix of short coastal and inland walks, plus longer hikes including 9 Munros and 8 Corbetts - all accessible within ten miles of the house. Fishing is also available from the river in front of Cam-Allt Na Mara (permit required and can be purchased in Lochcarron) and there are plenty of opportunities for those who enjoy climbing, pony-trekking and sailing.

The village of Lochcarron is across the loch and a five mile drive (just two miles by Kayak!) from the house offering a great range of amenities including a petrol station, restaurants, shops for stocking up on provisions and a cafe. There is also a restaurant within a five minute walk of Cam-Allt Na Mara, along with a pottery.

A trip on the Kyle Line is a great day out. One of the most scenic train rides in the world, the line runs close to the loch shore, providing the opportunity of seeing seals, otters and herons if you're lucky. Take a trip to Duncraig (make sure you let the driver know as it is a 'requested' stop) and then walk to Plockton for lunch, then take a train back to Strathcarron afterwards. Plockton is a picturesque village with great restaurants and coral beaches fringed with palm trees. From here you can take a boat trip and do some seal spotting.

Attadale Gardens is another popular local attraction (which hosts the Lochcarron Highland Games each year) with its intriguing gardens, sculptures and DIY tearoom. A drive to Applecross over the Bealach Na Ba (nervous drivers beware!) is an adventure in itself. Once in Applecross you are rewarded with wonderful beaches and superb eating places. Other popular attractions include iconic Eilean Donan Castle and Glen Elg with its ancient stone Broch's and ferry to the Isle of Skye.
