About Christine Gregson

Hi! I am Christine Gregson and together with my husband, George, we own and run two self-catering cottages and two static caravans. In 1990 we purchased Seagull Cottage in Seahouses, a converted fisherman's cottage just a stone's throw from the harbour where one can obtain one of the most iconic views in Northumberland - Bamburgh Castle. There are miles of beautiful sandy beaches nearby but we are well located for shops, restaurants etc. Nine years ago we also purchased Dalilea Bungalow, Acharacle, Argyll in Ardnamurchan, after falling in love with the area and its breathtaking scenery. We own 2.5 acres and have installed 2x 30ft. caravans for our guests, many of whom are repeat bookers. Indeed, our own children and their families love the area where they delight in many outdoor sports.

Christine Gregson purchased this mobile home in 2005

Why Christine Gregson chose Acharacle

The area is renowned for its unique splendour and is one of the most unspoilt regions in the Highlands, from the rugged mountains to one of the many beautiful beaches and coves abundant in the area.

Because of this and its remoteness we were instantly attracted to the area. It is however within a reasonable commute of Fort William and Mallaig where one can take the Ferry to The Isle of Skye. During the season the well-known Harry Potter "Hogwart's Express" runs from Fort William to Mallaig.

What makes this mobile home unique

There is an abundance of wildlife in the area, namely red deer, eagles, seals, otters, indeed, there is a resident pine marten in the garden shed. Fishing is also very popular with the jetty at Loch Shiel only a mile away where canoes and kayaks can be launched.

Although Dalilea is private, it is a short distance (4 miles) from the village of Acharacle where there is a shop, bakehouse, Post Office/Cafe and two restaurant/hotels serving delicious home-cooked food.

Dalilea has three units - one bungalow and two 30 ft. caravans which are fully equipped and have their own privacy. It also has the potential to cater for up to 18 people if taken as a whole for groups of family or friends. The grounds amount to 2.5 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens and sunart oak woodlands.

Key collection to be arranged via Mrs. C. M. Gregson. There is a washing line and wheelie bin for use by Caravan tenants at the side of the concrete sectional garage.

Owner's Response: Dear Billy Many thanks for your kind comments. It was most interesting to see the wild cat in our garden on your night time camera. No doubt if you`d stayed longer you would have perhaps have seen our Pine Marten. Sorry for the delay in response but have only just had broad band installed since our move up here. Looking forward to perhaps seeing you again next year. kind regards George and Christine

A functional and well located base

  • 4 of 5

An extremely functional and well located base for exploring this part of Scotland. We have stayed at this location twice and would recommend it to anyone wanting to visit the area.

The tearoom by the Post Office in Acharacle is very friendly and helpful, with excellent cakes, and has wifi.
