Tigh an Aullt sleeps six guests in three bedrooms and is a spacious holiday home in an enviable position with views across the loch and mountains. Sitting in the Scottish Highlands in the village of Ault na Chruinne at the foot of the famous Five Sisters of Kintail, access to Tigh an Aullt is exceptionally scenic through one Scotland's most beautiful glens. Cluanie Glen is simply breathtaking with its tranquil loch, tumbling rivers and magnificent mountains. Whatever the season, the colours of the surrounding landscape are sure to impress.
Famed amongst climbers and hikers, the munros provide a wonderful playground for outdoor enthusiasts, as well as a beautiful setting for a relaxing holiday. Tigh an Aullt affords the most elevated position of all the properties in the village, perched on the side of the hill with a stream flowing past adding to the tranquility of the setting.
The cottage provides a warm and cosy retreat and a perfect base from which to explore this incredible landscape. The Skye Bridge is easily accessible by car and just fifteen miles away providing a 'gateway' to some of Scotland's most spectacular scenery. Superb walking, mountain biking, sailing, fishing and pony-trekking are all available locally and you can hire a boat to enjoy the scenery from the shoreline.
Plockton, Eilean Donan's romantic castle (one of Scotland's most visited castles), Applecross and Torridon are all within driving distance. There is also an award winning pub with excellent restaurant just a quarter of a mile from the cottage and a shop half a mile away.
If you are looking for peace and tranquillity, then this is the place for you. The views over the surrounding mountains, loch and streams are incredible and you will find yourself continually drawn to the cottage windows to marvel at them! Of an evening, there is a special visitor, the Pine Marten and if you leave out bread, butter and strawberry jam you can watch the feast!
This area of Scotland is known as Kintail and is extremely mountainous with seventeen munros. Located between the eastern end of Loch Cluanie and the western end of Loch Duich, Kintail is said to be one of the last remaining great wildernesses, still accessible from the main areas of Scotland.
