Morar · Inverness-shire
Bourblach is a superbly restored croft-house, set in a commanding position, overlooking the Morar Estuary where the river winds its way through the famous White Sands, giving the house a spectacular and ever-changing view.
The setting is idyllic with secluded beaches just over the hill and the 'Local Hero' beach at Camusdarach nearby, while you pass the 'Harry Potter' viaduct at Glenfinnan, en route from Fort William. The fishing port of Mallaig with its shops, seafood and other restaurants, bars and hotels, is just three miles away. The house is situated about 500 yards off the main A830, 'Road to the Isles', and there is ample parking space at the side of the house. The location creates a wonderful 'away from it all' atmosphere. The Accommodation The house is extremely well appointed with three good-sized bedrooms which sleep 8 in comfort and style and it comes complete with a full Sky TV package and free WiFi access. The house is set in its own fenced grounds in the midst of a working croft. It is furnished and decorated to a very high standard. The accommodation consists of: An entry vestibule with an assortment of walking sticks, kites and a beach-toy hamper. The hallway gives access to both the farmhouse-style kitchen and the large living/dining-room. The kitchen has a long table that comfortably seats 8 and an oil-fired AGA-style cooker and central-heating boiler. There is also a conventional electric hob and oven, microwave, large fridge/freezer, washing machine and dish-washer. The living-room has an open fire and the dining-room table seats up to 12. There is a family-room off the kitchen with SKY TV, DVD player, a HiFi system, MP3 player, bookcase and CD Collection. Next door is the ground-floor bathroom with a walk-in shower. Upstairs are the three large family-sized bedrooms each with its own handbasin. The main bedroom has a king-sized double bed, there are twin beds in the room above the kitchen and the back bedroom has a large double bed and two single beds. The bathroom has a slipper bath with shower attachment. There is double-glazing throughout and full central- heating. The kitchen and living-room both have a French-door leading to a small patio. There is a built-in BBQ and patio in the back garden and a garden shed with patio furniture. Activities Morar is easily accessible by road from Glasgow (150 miles) and Edinburgh (170 miles) and by train, with the Fort William to Morar leg covered by the Jacobite Steam Train during the Summer months. The area is ideal for walking, fishing and sailing. Golfers will enjoy the 9-hole course at Traigh, three miles away. Buzzards regularly patrol the skies above Bourblach and white-tailed sea eagles have been known to nest in the area and otters regularly fish at the mouth of the Estuary.
