Location

From the Owner

Elspeth inherited Helensdale from her Grandparents, who built the property. It has been completely refurbished to provide very comfortable self catering accommodation in a peaceful scenic location. Guests love the ever changing view of the sea, and Ireland beyond along with the amazing sunsets that can be viewed from the comfort of the lounge. It is a completely "Away from it all" location - you will be guaranteed to see more wild life than people and more boats sailing in the North Channel than motor vehicles.
