Note: Dogs with well-behaved owners are allowed with prior enquiry & £5 a night cleaning fee. We like to welcome guests with dogs & want to be able to continue to do so, however there are a few caveats. Please see under House Rules - "Custom Rules".
The cottage is nestled in a remote location on the Stoer peninsular, surrounded by spectacular coastline & magnificent mountains. It is semi-detached to a neighbouring cottage. The location is ideal for walking & swimming, mountaineering & kayaking, fishing & swimming.
Torran Cottage is a spacious two-bedroom property which has excellent living space. It was redecorated and refurbished over the summer of 2020 and has a modern upright piano which guests are welcome to play.
The cottage has oil fired central heating and hot water, mains electricity and mains water. Drainage is to a septic tank and care must be taken not to dispose of any unsuitable items through the drains.
The kitchen has a fridge/freezer, washer/dryer machine, dishwasher, microwave, kettle, toaster, electric oven with induction hob and is fully equipped with all the kitchen crockery, glasses, utensils, pots & pans you could need.
Downstairs there is a good sized dining area, a sun room with piano, a cosy sitting room with a multi fuel stove and a bookshelf full of books, CDs, games and ordinance survey maps. Digital FreeSat TV is available with over 200 channels.
The cottage has a 4G Router with unlimited data which provides very good internet speeds.
Upstairs, there is a large double room and a second bedroom with 2 twin beds which can be put together to form a king-size. There is a travel cot but no bedding to go with this apart from a sheet.
The wooden staircase is quite steep & slippy in socks. At the top where the stairs meet the landing, they cut into the landing area near the twin bedroom door. The landing area is therefore quite narrow & restricted by the exposed stairwell. (See photo) This information is mainly for guests with young toddlers and has not been a problem for guests.
A good sized bathroom is also upstairs with a very large shower, basin and WC. Egyptian cotton bed linen & towels are provided.
Torran Cottage is a no smoking residence. Dogs are welcome however we ask that they are kept on a lead in the garden at all times and do not go upstairs or on the sofas.
Check-in is from 4pm (& check-out by 9am) to allow time for a thorough clean of the property.
Please be assured that we continue to adopt enhanced cleaning protocols.
