Station Cottage, near Plockton & Skye in the Scottish Highlands

3 bedroom self catering holiday cottage, sleeps 6, dog friendly

Station Cottage is a characterful cosy railwayman's cottage next to tiny Duirinish Station, set in beautiful unspoilt National Trust land by the sea near Plockton overlooking the Isles of Skye and Raasay and the mountains of Applecross. ‘Duirinish’ means ‘the headland of the deer’ in old Norse, and the moorland and crystal clear sea surrounding the cottage is home to abundant wildlife.

Family friendly and dog friendly, the cottage has recently been redecorated in a simple, traditional style to provide comfortable self catering accommodation for your holiday. It has a large garden and summerhouse with lovely views.

It is both perfectly peaceful and secluded, yet not isolated, and is connected by the railway which carries 4 trains a day from Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh. The 'Kyle Line' is famous as one of the most spectacular rail journeys in the world.

A warm, comfortable and well equipped cottage in a wonderful location

We loved our stay in this warm, comfortable and very well equipped cottage. We liked the fact it was an old house that blended older style furniture with modern equipment. Superb location with easy walking access to a rocky coastline and easy to get around the area by car. Lots of information left to make you aware of places to visit, where to eat etc
