If you’re aching for a secluded and atmospheric escape with the one you love, Conch Cottage is the destination of your dreams.
Inspired by the natural, curved beauty of a seashell, the architect-designed cottage is set on the wild west coast of Scotland, overlooking the shimmering Loch Sunart.
Hidden on the side of a hill, and boasting a gently sloping turf roof that blends seamlessly into the wilderness, you’ll feel blissfully set apart from the rest of the world as you step inside the eco-friendly haven.
Floor-to-ceiling windows showcase those spectacular, far-reaching sea loch views, whilst allowing natural daylight to flood inside, creating a warm welcome you won’t forget.
The open-plan living and sleeping space curves around the cottage’s central chimney, with a gorgeous open fire you won’t be able to resist huddling round by evening.
The wooden, fan-like beamed ceiling and contemporary lighting add more than a touch of opulence to your surroundings, while extra luxuries include an elevated double spa bath, heated ceramic tiled floors, and an intricately hand-crafted wooden bed that’s ideal for lazy lie-ins.
Prepare a sumptuous meal-for-two in the elegant, well-equipped kitchen area, or head outside to the gravel terrace for a sizzling barbecue, just as the golden sun begins to set over the glens and mountains.Keep reading
