Situated at the foot of the Five Sisters of Kintail, Tigh an Aullt is a holiday property set within a truly outstanding location. With far-reaching panoramic views out across the Highlands and the Clunanie Glen, the Scottish scenery is truly beautiful no matter what time of year.
Tigh an Aullt is located at the foot of the Five Sisters of Kintail, a famous set of Munros which draw climbers throughout the year. Sleeping 6, the property has 3 bedrooms (one double, one twin and one bunk room) alongside a separate family bathroom which has the added benefit of a two person Swedish sauna. The main double bedroom features a king-sized bed and also has a ensuite bathroom with Jacuzzi bath with a built in shower unit.
The house also features an excellently equipped kitchen, which is fitted with an electric oven with grill hob, digital slow cooker, microwave, dishwasher, Bosch Tassimo coffee machine and slow cooker, and an adjoining utility room is home to a washing machine, tumble dryer, fridge and freezer.
A spacious lounge offers spectacular views of Loch Duich and the Five Sisters of Kintail, where there is also a telescope in the sitting room which allows you to see Dolphins, Seals, Porpoises, Otters and Birds of Prey. A multi-fuel stove along with large comfy sofas, a TV and DVD player provides a relaxing space to gather everyone together for cosy evenings after enjoyable days walking. There is also a separate dining room with a large oak table, enough seating for 6 people and again magnificent views.
Outside Tigh an Aullt is a patio area with wooden bench and BBQ. Very close to the property is a spate stream full of large boulders which flows down the hillside beside the cottage garden and you can often hear the boulders moving along. There is also a special visitor that comes to the property in the evenings - the Pine Marten, who is easily attracted by leaving bread and butter with strawberry jam outside.
Close by there are a whole host of activities for guests to enjoy. Water sports are on offer in the Loch, and there are plenty of cycle routes, walks and climbs to explore. Fishing and whale watching can also be organised and you can even enjoy a days kayaking with the local National Trust ranger. The small hamlet of Shiel Bridge at the foot of the mountains has a local shop and filling stations, but more local amenities and shops can be found at the larger town of Kyle of Lochalsh. The famous Five Sisters of Kintail and surrounding mountains are popular with walkers and climbers alike.

A Doubly Amazing Cottage.
What an amazing cottage and an amazing area to stay in. Of course Eilen Donnan Castle is a must, as is the fishing. We walked four of the five Sisters and did three Red Callins on Skye. That takes us up to 93 mountains. Then had a day horse riding across the loch. And a must is the Jacobite Restaurant, wonderful food and such a warm welcoming conversation. Thank you one and all.
As wonderful as ever. Thank you so much. Great weather only rain on second Friday.
Views To Die For!
Lovely warm and comfy cottage. The views are to die for. Lots of birds, deer and wild goat. You could sit all day by the window and not get bored. Hope to come again.
Another fabulous week. Thank you so much. Saw crows, mice, siskins, gold finches and deer. The views are to die for, we're really envious.
As Beautiful As Ever!
Great to be back having had to miss our annual fix last year. Beautiful as ever, but milder and damper than most years. On Sunday evening we think there was a Mountain Rescue exercise on the slopes of Sgurr An Airgidh opposite with helicopters coming and going all in the dark - no mention in the West Highland Free Press.
A fabulous cottage in a beautiful area. Definitely five star accommodation.
