We stayed in the one bedroomed fisherman's cottage for an unseasonally sunny week in April with our 15mth old son. The setting is stunning, with spectacular views of Loch Carron; a wooded island that can be walked to from the beach at low tide (tides never low enough whilst we were there); and a rare breeds farm on site. The changes in light outside make the views of the loch dramatically different each time you look. It's compelling to watch for wildlife on the loch. We saw seals, herons, ducks and Llamas right outiside our door which the wee one just loved. The farm itself is wonderful for kids. You can take some feed and wander round feeding all the animals as you go, Our son adored this, and this became a daily activity. The cottage has a wood burning fire and some electric radiators for heat. There is no TV reception so if you have kids and they need TV, take DVD's - you really shouldn't need them unless there's rain and/or midges. There is a grassed area right outside the cottage with areas for camp fires, and a rocky beach. The accommodation is fairly basic, but you'd be a fool to think you'd get better value with the superior location and a brilliant farm on your door step.
