Located by the A861 in Mingarry near Acharacle and overlooking Claish Moss Nature Reserve, with views towards Beinn Resipol and Sgurr Dhomhnuill in Ardgour, Cnoc Breac is a traditional stone croft cottage set in over 3 acres of garden with a knoll behind the cottage that provides wonderful views across Loch Shiel and beyond, and a small burn that flows through the lower part of the garden. It is the perfect place as a ‘getaway’ for a quiet relaxing break and for exploring the Peninsula.
Cnoc Breac provides self-catering accommodation for up to two people and is available all year round. Thought to be over 150 years old, the cottage is the only surviving (habitable) dwelling believed to be part of the now abandoned settlement of High Mingarry.
The open-plan design includes a well-equipped kitchen-diner that includes a fridge-freezer and a washing machine. The porch has ample room for coats and boots. The sitting room has views across the loch and a wood burner, while the bathroom has a bath with overhead shower and a heated towel rail. Central heating is provided throughout the cottage along with inclusive electricity, gas, Wi-Fi and fuel for the log burner. The sleeping space has a double bed and is reached by a ladder; however, a sofa bed is also provided for anyone who prefers not to climb the ladder. Bedlinen and towels are provided throughout. There is ample off-road parking near the cottage, and undercover storage for two bicycles is available upon request.
Loch Moidart and the 13th Century Castle Tioram, Loch Sunart, Loch Shiel and sandy beaches at Ardtoe and Samalaman are all within a few miles of the cottage. There are many walks for different abilities, some within a short distance of Cnoc Breac taking in spectacular views of coastline, lochs, and woodland in this beautiful area of the West Highlands.
