The cottage looks towards beautiful Loch Sunart - a few minutes walk away and an ideal spot for kayakers and sailors alike. Strontian is the perfect hub for walkers and nature lovers wishing to explore the many local paths and mountain trails of the area known as the Outdoor Capital of the UK. Visits to Mull and Iona via the nearby Lochaline ferry or Skye via Mallaig are very enjoyable day trips. The majestic mountains of Glencoe or bustling Fort William can be reached within 45 minutes via a short crossing on the Corran Ferry. Why not climb Ben Nevis - Britains highest mountain, while here? Or simply enjoy the Stunning sandy beaches and secluded spots of Sanna, within easy reach on the Ardnamurchan peninsula whilst Ardnamurchan Point itself, with its dramatic views out to the Hebrides, is the most westerly part of the British mainland. Enjoy lunch at Ardurmuchan Lighthouse - Britains most westerly point. The majestic scenery of the West Highland Line can be experienced by train from nearby Fort William, giving visitors the opportunity to see the world-famous Glenfinnan Viaduct at the head of Loch Shiel. Whatever you choose to do, you will look forward to returning to Bramble Cottage, perhaps preparing a meal in the kitchen to enjoy al-fresco in the garden, or simply relaxing with a good book in the lounge before taking a short stroll to the local hotel for a meal.

The cottage has been designed for both couples, friends and families in mind and we have many return guests each year from each group.

Also wheel chair friendly, with flat entrance, wide doors and lower wall switches.

The living room offers a selection of books and DVDs for those wet afternoons and there are board games to bring the whole family together!

At bramble you can do as much - or as little! - as you want. We hope you enjoy it as much as we and all previous guests do.

About Liz Gilchrist

I live in East Kilbride with my partner, Euan and 2 children, Adam and Emma. We have holidayed on the Ardurmuchan peninsula for years, loving the peacefulness of the area, beautiful beaches and scenic hill walks. Euan is a furniture maker, specialising in reclaimed Scottish Hard woods (Tailormadefurniture.co.uk). In the last 12 months Euan has been very busy adding to the cottage - with a new porch, outdoor drying shed, hand made beds , extra kitchen storage and display unit in hall.

Euan is a keen walker and can be booked for guided walks in the area.

I am in banking, so love to get away to Strontian as you can imagine!

Liz Gilchrist purchased this bungalow in 2015

Why Liz Gilchrist chose Strontian

We bought this property as we recognised Strontian as being in the perfect location for a varied family holiday. We can get to the beaches of Sanna, the hills of Glencoe, the picturesque Island of Mull or Fort William in an hour, or we can take a walk through ancient oak lands or by Loch Sunart straight from the door. When we viewed the cottage it was obvious the previous owners had invested great love and attention in the cottage having only built it 5 years previously. It had a warmth and welcoming feel that felt like coming home. Previous visitors in the visitors book all spoke of their love for Bramble and their desire to return. The cottage has a shop, cafe and hotel within a few minutes walk and we liked the benefit of being "away from it all" but with convenience on the door step. All locals have been friendly and the small town has a real community feel that is missing in today's busier towns. We love getting off the Corran Ferry on the peninsula, feeling our modern day stresses melt away safe in the knowledge that in 20 minutes we will be Enjoying the peace and warmth of Bramble Cottage.

What makes this bungalow unique

Bramble Cottage is set in an ideal situation. It is only metres away from all local amenities but has no passing traffic. It offers privacy with a fenced front garden and has gardens to the rear - so perfect for children or pets. It is situated on the edge of a woodland offering fantastic walks. It is in the ideal location to enjoy a varied holiday, with majestic Glencoe, the scenic Island of Mull, the glorious sandy beaches of Sanna all within an hour, or fabulous walks from the door. The cottage has generously proportioned rooms and is wheel chair friendly. We aim to provide a home from home that you will want to return to again and again. We try to take the stress out by providing linens, towels, kitchen basics such as washing up liquid, a complimentary welcome pack with fresh milk in the fridge. We hope you will love Bramble as we do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

In March I spent a week at Bramble Cottage Strontian with a friend and my dog.

It was excellent.

A lovely clean, comfortable, and warm cottage and very well equipped.

The location was perfect, stunning scenery all around, lovely walks, a local well stocked shop and good eateries nearby.

We had a very warm welcome from the owners with flowers and a basket of goodies for us and treats for a very appreciative dog. Every eventuality was catered for.

I hope to visit again and will certainly recommend this lovely place to friends.

Thank you Liz and Euan.

Very comfortable cosy cottage, well maintained, spacious and amazing view down to the loch

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage, it had everything we needed for our stay. The kitchen was well equipped and a lovely big table allowed us all to eat together comfortably. The enclosed garden was ideal for our dogs to play in, when we weren’t out walking and there was plenty of space in the hallway for their beds. The lounge had lots of dvds and books for use and a lovely view towards the Loch. The beds were very comfy and the bathroom with its separate shower was a good size, also the amazing view from the bathroom window. The welcome pack on arrival was much appreciated. The cottage is ideally located for access to the local shops, cafe, Bothy Bar, hotel restaurant and lots of walks from the front door. There is ample parking for 2 cars and being st the end of a lane it is very peaceful. Hope to return very soon

Fantastic place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

A very clean and lovely bungalow which is quite private and yet only 2/3 minutes walk from the very well stocked shops and places to eat.

The TV and mobile phone reception is not good.

We all had a wonderful time in a stunning cottage with everything that you could ever need. The area was great lots of walks from the door which is always a bonus and Kentra Bay is an absolutely must. It is a spectacular bay. We took a trip to Mull and spenta wonderful afternoon in Calgary Bay...... The Strotian Hotel is so handy for a quick bite we can recommend the paella it was delicious and the Scottish breakfast in Café Sunart are gorgeous.

Loch Sunart is within a few minutes walk. At 31 kilometres (20 miles) it is the longest sea loch in the Highlands and a popular destination for kayakers, canoeists and sailors.

There are beaches nearby at Inversanda - less than 15 minutes by car along the main A861 - Ardtoe (around 16 miles or 30 minutes by car) and the magnificent sandy expanse of Sanna Bay - well worth the hour's drive along the full length of the peninsula.


Given the rural nature of the area, the use of a car is essential. Car rental is available in Fort William which has a mainline train station connecting it to Glasgow with 3 services a day in each direction.

Glasgow Airport is around two and a half hours away by car whilst Inverness Airport to the North is approximately two hours drive from the cottage.


A short crossing on the Corran Ferry (15miles/20minutes by car) connects with the main A82. By this route Fort William is 23 miles from Bramble Cottage, Glencoe 22 miles and Oban - with ferries to Mull, Coll, Tiree, Barra and South Uist - 50 miles from Strontian.

Ardnamurchan Point Lighthouse - the most Westerly point on the British mainland - 35 miles.

Lochaline - for ferry to Mull and onward trips to Iona and Staff - is a picturesque 30 minute drive on the A884.

Further Details:

The village is well served by a mini market, post office & general store, cafe, three hotels - two of which have public bars, and a tearoom & crafts workshop.

Petrol and diesel are available just moments from the holiday cottage and cycle hire can also be arranged in the village.

There is a well-resourced community centre with a library which is open 6 days a week including two evenings. The centre also provides community sports facilities including a gym and badminton courts.

There is a cash machine in the mini-market in the village centre.

A seasonal Tourist Information office operates from April to October and is open six days a week.
