Comraich, meaning sanctuary and protection in Gaelic, is a charming wooden holiday property that welcomes pets and offers self-catering accommodation with all amenities that a family can enjoy. It is situated on a remote rural hillside behind the village of Kilchoan and features stunning sea views over to the Isle of Mull, making it an ideal location for walking and fishing.

Comraich is an unusual A-framed holiday lodge set in a beautifully landscaped garden with a paved patio at the front, perfect for catching the morning sun. It is located on the hillside behind the village of Kilchoan in Western Ardnamurchan, and boasts breathtaking views across the bay from Ben Hiant on one side to the wide Atlantic on the other.

The house provides an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area, including the delights of Sanna Beach, Ardnamurchan Lighthouse, Nadurra Natural History Centre, and Ardnamurchan Distillery. Recently refurbished with meticulous attention to detail, Comraich is a haven of comfort and charm, offering accommodation for up to six people.

The ground floor features an entrance lobby leading to an open plan living/dining area with a separate kitchen and a curtained-off sleeping area with a double bed, as well as a bathroom with a whirlpool bath and electric shower. Upstairs, you will find two single beds on the landing and a double bedroom with an en-suite shower room.

Outside, the garden is fenced and gated, ensuring the safety of your loved ones and providing peace of mind for parents and pet owners.

Arrival Date

Departure Date



We have stayed at Comraich many times and also been to the area for many years and this house is still one of the best places we have stayed.

It has everything you could wish for and always feels welcoming, with good back up from the team at Steadings.

Thank you


Very well appointed accommodation

A very well set up house which provided a very comfortable living space for the week. Everything was in good order. My only criticism was that the kitchen equipment, e.g. the glasses, were not that clean on arrival and needed to be washed.
But overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful area.


Brilliant holiday

We had a lovely time in Comraich. The accommodation suited our needs very well (party of 5 adults). Everything was very clean and well laid out with a personal touch here and there. Perfect location too and the shop was well stocked with supplies. We were very lucky with the weather and made good use of the barbecue.


A weeks chill

We stayed at Comraich for the first time and were pleasantly surprised. The location was spot on, local inn and ferry terminal in easy walking distance. The accomodation was spot on, clean and homely with every amenity you could want. At the end of our stay I did not want to leave.


a great location and accommodation for the holiday we were looking for.

We enjoyed our stay at Comraich very much. The house and especially the garden were ideal for our holiday and our dog who was with us. The beach at Sanna was superb.


Beautiful location

Lovely location and very well equipped.A really wonderful place to relax and use as a base yo explore the surrounding area and ferry to Mull.Hope to return.


all ok

it was all ok in general but it wasn't really cleaned.


Steading Holidays in Ardnamurchan, Scotland

My partner and I arrived at our A-frame wooden lodge to find it airy, fresh, clean and very well equipped.

Our week was one of fabulous Spring weather - we awoke each morning to the singing of many willow warblers in the trees surrounding our holiday home in Kilchoan village. During our stay the cuckoo arrived! And - sitting outside our lodge enjoying sunshine and coffee al fresco on the garden furniture - we watched the swallows explore their nesting areas round the lodge. Thrushes and blackbirds sang and fed on the lawn and we could see bats flying from dusk.

It was lovely to lie on the sofa in the evening seeing the moon in the window and the stars - during the day Comraich has a great view of Loch Sunart. Straight out the door you have a lovely gentle walk to the ferry pier - where we saw porpoises.

We've had three holidays over a period of ten years with the Steading - we always wonder why we leave it so long to return! Walking on the nearby famous (but never crowded!) Sanna beach with its fine white sand and turquoise and indigo sea is an experience that always leaves you feeling rested and restored. This visit we also discovered - thanks to a tip-off from John at the Steading office in Kilchoan - the very lovely Bay McNeill. Just near the Stevenson lighthouse - fabulous!

If you've ever thought of exploring Adnamurchan then we highly recommend The Steading properties - they're all great in our experience and they come with the added benefit of the experience and knowledge of John and Jacquie who run the Steading outfit - they are never far from the office or Gallery shop and they know Everything and Everyone!

So you can relax and enjoy the Wilds of north west Scotland with the peace of mind of knowing advice is at hand if you should need any.

It was a wonderful week and Comraich is definitely on our list for another visit - it's so cosy and comfortable we'd be happy there even if the weather kept us indoors! Excellent power showers were a real bonus, a light, pleasant kitchen and comfortable sleeping quarters all made for a home-from-home feeling.




Really enjoyed our stay, although weather not so good. The house itself was really good. Although did not understand why we should pay more for electricity, when we did not use that much. Should be included in the price.Wonderful location, very close to Mull, only 35 minutes by ferry. Had a lovely day there. Kids intrigued by all the wildlife!


Recharging batteries

We loved staying at Comraich, it suited everything that we needed. Just wished we had booked earlier when the price had been cheaper, as we were only two persons, but, as we are hoping another trip up in September, maybe staying again in the surrounding beautiful area. Think we would have preferred a log burning fire, for the cooler nights, as the glow and heat of a real fire is very comforting, especially if theres a lot of wet socks, and walking boots to dry out. Thank you again Susan Joerg Sommer.


A very homely and comfortable place to stay.

Comraich seemed to have everything we needed for our stay and always felt like a place we were coming 'home' to at the end of each day. Even when we hadn't gone out, we never felt 'trapped' in the house since it was such a nice place to hang about in, reading or just watching the weather (and occasional pine martin) go by.


Home from home!

Beautiful chalet. Kitchen has everything you need for any dish so self catering is easy. Garden nice and big for kids (bit boggy at bottom though). Son even found a slow worm ? swallows nesting in eaves and swooping around garden - bliss! Double bed upstairs could do with a new mattress but other than that a superb chalet. Had a great holiday once again ?


Really relaxing break

We spent 5 nights here and had an amazing time. The lodge is very well equipped with everything that we needed, possibly the best equipped place we have stayed in. The lodge was warm and comfortable, a great place to return to after a day exploring the area. We really enjoyed the early morning coffee sat out on the balcony looking towards the sea. The dog loved the big garden.
Very peaceful, surrounded by wildlife. Really relaxing. Highly recommended.

Late Summer Chill

This is the second time we have stayed here, the property is well equipped, clean and comfortable. The location is convenient for local amenities. If you are looking for a total chill in beautiful surroundings, then this is it.

Graham Kirk

Easter break

The Comraich is a very well equipped lodge in an excellent location. We were very happy with the accomodation itself however felt that the kitchen and rest of house could be cleaned to a higher standard for guests. I think this could be something the owner could improve on in the future. We will definitely return as we had a great holiday and this is the second time we have stayed.


Happy times.......

Excellent facilities, kitchen has all you need. Perfect .....

Susan Hiles

A lovely escape.

This was a lovely place to stay. Very comfortable and great value for money. I would stay here again and recommend it to friends. The showers are excellent and the beds comfortable.


A very out of the way log cabin

The log cabin had everything you could possibly need, we arrived late 350 miles from home to a away dream ,The quietness, apart from all the bird song, we had a lovely quiet 4 nights break. ,only niggles,, downstairs toilet seat had wonky seat. Downstairs bed maybe needed up grading, otherwise very wonderful. Will consider going later in the year.

Michael Rhodes

Lovely stay

A really enjoyable week, very nice property. Tremendous location and views. Huge garden. Quiet, well removed from neighbours. We visit the W or NW Highlands every year but hadn't been to Ardnamurchan before - it is a wonderful area.

Simon Roberts

Loved it!

This is the fifth property we have rented in the area and is by far our favourite.

As a family with a 3 year old and a baby, we found the property to be clean, modern, well equipped & near to the park.
A cot, high chair, stair gate and potty were all provided within- along with children's books and DVD's.

I think the house had literally everything you need for day to day living, with lots of lovely little extras like a toy box, a multitude of cleaning products, boxes of tissues throughout, candles, a sewing box etc for emergencies. Some serious effort has gone into this house.

There is a large surrounding garden which we had great fun playing in & feeding the birds that were nesting on the porch. I loved lying in bed with the window open, listing to the cuckoo & birds singing. Not so much for the husband..

I only hope we are able to get booked again for next year as we just had the most amazing two weeks of chilling out!

Caroline Niblock

Great lodge in lovely location

The lodge is very well equipped and met our needs completely. It's location in Kilchoan is ideal as a base for exploring Ardnamurchan and taking the ferry over to the Isle of Mull.

Linda Bell

We love this house!!!

This is our second consecutive stay at Comraich and we have quickly decided that this is by far the best house we've stayed in in over 14 years of visiting Ardnamurchan and Kilchoan.
The house is always clean, well kept and excellently catered for in the kitchen.
The showers, yes, there are two and very powerful. The kitchen is brilliantly laid out, lots of workspace and plenty of crockery and utensils.
The fenced garden is essential for our children and dog Ella to play safely in and it's huge with land all round the house.
We enjoyed sitting out and enjoying BBQs on the picnic table and star gazing with the wife under a clear sky in the love chairs.
Of an evening during the wetter days, we play board and card games for hours at the dining table, the window next to it provides great viewing of wild birds of prey and bats at night.

We have come to love this house, and Sarah and Geoff, though we haven't physically met, are really friendly and accommodating with any requests or needs as are the housekeepers Jacqui and John.

Don't be deceived by the shape and size of this house, you'll be surprised what is within once you get inside.

Kelly Fulton

Had a tear in my eye when we left.

Thoroughly thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Such a calm , peaceful and relaxing atmosphere to be in. Sitting watching wildlife until the sunset.
Comraich was home from home and was ideal for dog owners, our pooch had a whale of a time.

Helen Nicolson

Comfortable house in a fantastic location

Had a lovely few days staying in Comraich. The house is in a fantastic location, perfectly situated for exploring the western tip of Ardnamurchan and with a lovely outlook from living room, terrace and garden. It is homely and well-equipped, making for a very comfortable stay. Given that much of the furnishing is of a basic standard and the basic price does not include linen or electricity, it is a bit expensive for what you get. That said, I would be pleased to go back for a good place to stay in this wonderful part of the country.

Richard Moore

Our stay at Comraich

Amazing location and having a large enclosed garden was fantastic with us having 2 dogs. Lovely views and a very comfortable lodge.
We will be back to the same place next year.
Loved every second

Neil Ashton

Another lovely week staying at Comraich

This is our second time staying at Comraich with our two young sons, there was initially a mix up with the bedding however Sarah rectified this asap and also sent us £10.00 in the post afterwards as a goodwill gesture which was a lovely thought. We had a brilliant time again visiting the beaches, tobermory and lighthous. The area is beautiful and we are looking forward to coming back again and staying with you. Very happy with the service and Sarah was more than happy to help with any problems. See you again soon.

A haven of tranquility with everything you could need.

We were blessed to have wonderful weather during our stay but even if we hadn't the cabin was a perfect place to relax and unwind with everything inside it you could possibly need. The temperature tended to drop at night but the heaters kept the place lovely & cosy and there was plenty of hot water for baths or showers. A well equipped holiday home with inviting decor and everything a dog could need too. Big fenced in garden, a kennel if required (we didn't but its a great option) & walks on your doorstep even if its just to the shop or pub. Would love to come back in the future....im sorely tempted to keep this our little secret & scrap the review haha!!

Wilma Howat

A gorgeous cabin set in a beautiful location

The family run steading cottages are lovely. We stayed in Comraich with friends. The cabin was clean, comfy and fully equipt with everything you'd need -from tea and coffee to dog biscuits!

The cabin is in such a beautiful location with lots of lovely walks and sights to see. For families there's also a fantastic playground which has been newly constructed by the local community.

The gallery and craft shop is also worth a visit to see the beautiful crafts made by local artisans!

Would absolutely reccomend staying at Steading Holidays. And I hope to stay again soon!

Dog friendly holiday accommdation

We had a fantastic time at Comraich. We knew it was dog friendly but was totally blown away when we saw just how dog friendly. From the poop scoop to the treats, they thought of everything.The outside kennel, which we never used, but is a good size for your favourite member of the family if you need to visit a non dog friendly establishment in the area. However all the places we visited , including the Kilchoan hotel for evening meals were exceptionally dog friendly. Our 'chap' made quite a few friends there.

I have told friends and family of our wonderful stay. I also advised that the road from the Corran ferry to Kilchoan, is single track most of the way and seem to go on forever. However once we got there it was worth it. We returned via Mull so all in all a wonderful experience. Didn't even mind not having the broadband. In fact it was good to get away from it and simply enjoy each others company. A real holiday indeed.The office and coffee shop as well as the Hotel was most welcoming when it could not be avoided.

The only criticism I have is the overgrown front garden and patio area.

Great holiday in a great location

We had a lovely time a comraich the accommodation was good and In a great location, it was really peaceful and quite and would really have liked to stay another week. The only downside was the bed mattresses could really be doing with renewal, the bathrooms were excellent and nice and clean. The kitchen was very well equipped. The dog loved the garden even if it was a bit overgrown in parts, we loved sitting out each evening watching the wildlife and even spotted a sea eagle on our last day. The highlight of our holiday was at sanna beach on a glorious sunny day. Even though the journey was long we would definitely like to return again.

Fiona Oswald

Our fantastic holiday

Perfect holiday in a perfect accomodation. Spotless. Well equiped. Homely. Cozy
Loved it so much xxx

Judith Richardson

Could do better

A very nice accommodation in a lovely location, a lot of thought has gone into Comraich to ensure that you have everything you need. Getting a good nights sleep in the low budget beds is difficult. Cleanliness was an issue. The previous occupants had left the cooker in a disgusting state. There was a sausage and beafburger in a thick layer of fat left in the cooker. We had to clean everything before we could use it. Also the surround for the doormat cut my foot.

Graham Kirk

Enjoyable stay

The guys thought the accommodation was perfect, they really enjoyed their stay. They enjoyed the views of the surrounding area whilst working.


We loved Comraich!

Perfect family holiday home. Dog friendly, well equipped throughout, great garden space and views. Would definitely stay again.

Stephen Kinnaird

Christopher Rudd

John Coates

Lovely accommodation, lovely place

Another fab week stay in Comraich, very comfortable and clean. It has everything we needed which makes it feel very homely n a delight to stay in. The area is has gorgeous scenery, friendly locals and lots of wildlife around - seals, deer, stag and ypu maybe lucky to see an adder snake as we did. Love this place and will be back again soon.
