Cnoc Na Long
Cnoc Na Long dog friendly holiday cottage in Ardnamurchan. Remote former croft house sleeping up to five way out west, close to stunning beaches and the famous Ardnamurchan Lighthouse on Scotland’s west coast.

It’s set within an acre of private garden looking southeast across the western edge of the Ardnamurchan Ring Dyke (former volcano!). Originally built in the late 1800s, its recent restoration has retained many original features and captured the light and colours of this unique environment to create a very special place.
Dramatic views across the mountains
The dinning room/conservatory offers dramatic views across the mountains and ever changing weather, look out for eagles! The cosy woodburner is ideal for collapsing in front of after a wild walk on the beach.
The furnishings and art have been inspired the local area, including pieces made from reclaimed timber and driftwood gathered off local beaches.
It has one double bedroom and one twin bedroom full of really nice wooden furniture plus a single futon. The kitchen includes a large Belfast sink and range cooker, fridge freezer and microwave.
The only down side there’s no dishwasher! The bathroom features a huge cast iron bath, ideal for long relaxing soaks.
It’s a heck of a drive to get to this inspirational place, the last hour or so on narrow single tracks roads. It’s well worth the effort though!
