Explore Kintail and the surrounding areas from a base near Kyle of Lochalsh

Kintail is on the ‘Road to the Isles’, where the Atlantic Ocean washes the base of some of the oldest mountains in the world.

“Where the lochs meet the mountains
and the eagles and buzzards circle overhead,
where the stags roar to possess their territory,
and heron hunt as salmon begin their journey upstream”

Finding John Fisher’s Cottage

The cottage is situated in the centre of Kintail, at the head of the tidal waters of Loch Duich so that the spring high tides enter the bottom of the garden. A causeway carries the main A87 road to Kyle of Lochalsh (20kms away) across Loch Duich on the seaward side of the cottage, leaving the former main road as a peaceful lane to the crofting hamlet of Caringorm (OS map No 33 [1:50,000 series] ‘Lochalsh & Glenshiel’ ref 956208).

Kintail – The cottage is 65 miles from Inverness and it is easily accessed by main roads from Fort William (A82 & A87) and Inverness (A82 & A887). Four trains each day run into Kyle of Lochalsh (20km) from Inverness. There are twice daily buses to and from each of Glasgow and Edinburgh and three times daily to and from Inverness; the bus stop is 1km from the cottage. The nearest Airport is Inverness (110 km) served by the low cost airline EasyJet from Luton, Stansted and Bristol as well as other airlines; cars can be hired at the airport or in Inverness.
