About Jackie Robertson

Hi, my name is Jackie Robertson. I run Knoydart House and Hide our smaller luxury hideaway for couples, both offer something very very special. Remote luxury self catering for families and friends in our larger property Knoydart House or for 2 people in our new luxury let Knoydart Hide on the beautiful Knoydart Peninsula. We have 2 children, are pet friendly (well behaved pets) and enjoy sharing Knoydart House and Hide with families with children as well as couples in love who want to unwind and enjoy the unspoiled beauty of the rough bounds of Knoydart Peninsula. Our lifestyle is very different, being accessible only by boat Knoydart offers a true escape, 15 minute by boat off the beaten track. Although boat access only, Knoydart is a bustling little village with pottery tea room. post office, seafood pub and restaurant for great reconnection time with those that matter the most. Knoydart is a fantastic place to bring up children, the lochs are bursting with scallops and razor fish, fresh mussels, lobsters crabs, mackerel and creel langoustines. Folk music figures highly. Go wild swimming in our clear crystal river, relax by a waterfall, go sealife spotting for whales, orca, minke, porpoise, stag, deer, otter or sea eagle.

Jackie Robertson purchased this house in 2010

Why Jackie Robertson chose Fort William & Lochaber

We have lived here on Knoydart for 20 years, it is known as the last wilderness and is a stunning location. Having run mainland Britain's remotest pub The Old Forge for 20+ years and recently sold it we bought the land where we built Knoydart House and then last year Knoydart Hide. The location overlooks Loch Nevis, sealoch Gaelic for heaven set in under an acre of private woodland with uninterrupted views across the loch. The spot where we built Knoydart House was first claimed by our young Children aged 10 and 12 for their den and made way for our larger development of our new eco house completed August 2010 and Hide completed in 2014. There is no light pollution on Knoydart, you can watch otters feast at dawn from the decking, the boats come and go across the loch and observe the milky way for the first time!

What makes this house unique

Knoydart has no roads in, boat access only and is a great family and friends castaway destination. Knoydart House has featured on Sky Travel Channel described as having one of the best sealoch hot tub views in Scotland. The house has 2 private moorings, antiques, wifi, Nespresso coffee maker, Brabantia, Panasonic breadmaker, TV, freesat and pro running machine. There is a BOSE ipod dock for your iphone or ipods. The house has large vaulted ceilings and 5 bedrooms, no bunk beds all rooms are either twins or superkings configured to your choice there is also a king size bed, underfloor heating and wood burning fire with drystone features and Douglas fir open beams throughout. The house was built with social space in mind, musical instruments, a selection of games. Although a more unspoiled location Knoydart really has something for everyone, the walking is out of this world 3 munros on our doorsteps, complete privacy yet only 5 mins walk to the pub, village, tearoom pottery and pier. Mackerel fishing, crabbing, ceilidhs and the best seafood on our doorstep. Relax under the nightsky and watch the milky way with a glass of bubbles in the hot tub or watch the boats slip their moorings and dine alfresco breakfast with the stags, otters and porpoise at play in the loch.
