Grigadale on the Ardnamurchan Peninsula is as close to the perfect detox / chillout holiday from the stresses of modern life you could wish for.. The location is so peaceful with some of the most awe inspiring landscapes, seascapes and geological interest you could imagine. This has to be one of the most unique places in the UK and with the amazing Grigadale cottage as your base you cannot fail to be impressed and relaxed in equal measure.
The accommodation is first class as is the service from the local agent Davie who ensures you have everything you need to support the house, with the nearest shop around 5 miles away in Kilchoan you do have to plan for your vacation and bring with you as much as you can. The house facilities support this very well as it is superbly provisioned and with a view like there is from the kitchen window it's actually a joy to cook.
The vistas from all sides of the house are stunning, your nearest neighbour is at least a mile away and you have completely open and unspoilt 360 views. This is a superb base for chilling out, walking, climbing, photography or anything where you crave the outdoors or some peace to be creative. We have stayed twice already and have another 3 stays booked already.
You do have to be mindful of the local roads, they are single track, so if you plan to head out in the car to visit Sanna, Portuairk (both walkable though), Swordle Bay, Kentra Bay, Fascdale, Glenborradale which are all stunning do plan appropriate time to drive safely and enjoy the draw dropping scenery en route. You can easily head of further afield to Mull on the ferry from Kilchoan and Skye is also doable if you wanted to tie in a visit there too. But to be honest, with 1,800 acres of it's own land you wont be short of places to explore on foot including Corrachadh Mòr the most westerly point of mainland Great Britain.
All in all an amazing place to stay and such a laid back pace of life you'll not want to go home.
