Swordle Bay House
With such expansive views across the white sand bay towards the islands of Eigg, Muck, Rum, and the Cuillins of Skye – we had to justify it with equally enormous windows to help take it all in. From summer sunsets to winter storms, this comfortable fireside view rarely disappoints.
The secluded beach is just in front of the house at the end of a private road, perfect for sunbathing, swimming, boating trip and bbqs. Not to mention a popular place for kids to while away the hours on – making sandcastles, exploring pools and paddling.
There are two double bedrooms, two twin ones and a family bedroom, all of which are en-suite. There’s also an additional shower and toilet. The kitchen has cooker, microwave, washing machine, dishwasher and fridge-freezer. The lounge features a large flat-screen television and satellite TV.
All of our properties are supplied by private water sources, burns or springs. The water is tested by the local authority environmental health department each year and is perfectly safe to drink and to use for washing or cooking. Guests who may prefer the taste of processed water rather than the real thing are welcome to bring their own supplies of drinking water.
On occasion, this cottage is available to book for 3 days at a time. Please phone our estate office to check availability.

You will soon come to a junction to the right, signposted Kilmory (2.5 miles), Fascadale (4 miles), Ockle (4 miles). Take this road and then follow the signs for Ockle. After 3.5 miles there is an Ardnamurchan Estate sign on the left. Take a left turn here and then follow the track through the farmyard and down to Swordle Bay House.
