  The Detail...

Hidden in the Scottish Highlands on the shores of Loch Linnhe and surrounded by the majestic Glen Coe and Ben Nevis, youll find the charming Ard Daraich. This was once the holiday home of Constance Spry, famed florist and cook, and is now a self-catering apartment alongside a separate Garden Studio. Both the apartment and studio have access to the beautiful nine-acre garden and provide the perfect base from which to explore the West Highlands and Inner Hebrides.

The Garden Apartment provides cosy and homely accommodation for up to five guests. Step into the apartment from its own garden entrance and youll find calming colours, traditional Highland features and tasteful dcor. The sitting room, with comfy sofas and armchairs gathered around a wood-burner, looks out over the garden. This is a relaxing spot to settle down with a whisky after dinner and enjoy a board game or two in front of a roaring fire. The modern kitchen features a dining table and chairs and is equipped with everything a self-catering holiday demands.

Head up the book-lined staircase and youll come to two large bedrooms and the bathroom. The Tudor bedroom has a magnificent four-poster bed which came from Kenilworth Castle and enjoys spectacular views out towards Ben Nevis. The Italian room features a sumptuous king-sized bed, an original fireplace and beautiful views of the garden. In the bathroom, youll find the propertys original rolltop bathtub, the perfect place to relax after a day exploring the Highlands.

The Garden Studio provides a romantic retreat for couples, with an open plan living space and a private garden and terrace. The studio has also been designed to be eco-friendly with the wood-burning stove boosting the underfloor heating and a passive ventilation system. Downstairs, youll find the charming kitchen which opens out onto the cosy living area and French doors lead out to the garden. Upstairs, there is a luxurious king-sized bed and an ensuite bathroom, both with stunning views.

Ard Daraich is located near Fort William on the Ardnamurchan Peninsula, ideal for exploring the wild and beautiful landscape of the West Coast of Scotland. There are endless opportunities for walkers of all abilities to get out and reconnect with nature on one of the many trails and routes. A trip to one of the local reserves will give you the chance to spot some of the native wildlife, such as red deer and golden eagles. Fort William offers a whole host of outdoor activities from white water rafting, theres something to suit all tastes.
