Glenfinnan | The world-renowned story of Bonnie Prince Charlie 's fight for the British throne gathered momentum at Glenfinnan where he raised the Jacobite standard and rallied his clansmen for battle.
Mallaig | At the end of the ‘Romantic Road to the Isles’ and the West Highland Railway Line lies Mallaig, just over an hour from Fort William. To go further afield, board one of the ferries either to Skye or to the Small Isles of Muck, Eigg, Rum and Canna.
Morar | As the Atlantic Ocean rolls in past the Small Isles, its azure shallows tumble on to sparkling white beaches which have long lured photographers and film-makers – none more so than the stretches from Traigh Beach to the silver sands of Morar where 'Local Hero' and 'Highlander' were filmed.
Arisaig | This is the area where the renowned west coast sunset can be enjoyed at its best. There can be no more magical sight than the sun as it disappears behind the islands in a riot of pink, red and purple, setting the mountains of Rum and Skye ablaze with colour.
Lochailort | Loch Ailort cuts its way in from the Ardnamurchan peninsula. The loch, with its clean and sheltered waters was where Scottish fish farming was pioneered. Just a mile further north at Polnish the road passes the old white church which was used in the film 'Local Hero'.
The Small Isles | Unlike many groups each island is distinct and different in geography, agronomy, population and ownership. From Muck in the south, through Eigg with its tooth-like Sgurr, and Rum, mountainous and mysterious in the clouds, to Canna in the north, the Islands offer a wonderful variety of scenery, wildlife and lifestyle.
Knoydart | The Knoydart peninsula is only accessible by boat from Mallaig or by a 20 mile hike on foot. A wonderful area for walking and camping, this is truly a miles-from-anywhere, get-away-from-it-all place. The Old Forge has the accolade of being the most remote pub in mainland Britain

Fois a Chridhe

Fois a Chridhe (‘Hearts at peace’ in Gaelic) is a luxury 3-bedroom, new build cottage nestled within the tranquil village of Morar. The cottage is a few minutes walk from the famous ‘Silver sands of Morar’, and a 5-minute drive away from Camusdarach beach of ‘Local Hero’ fame.

Fois a Chridhe is beautifully finished and is the perfect blend of modern convenience and traditional charm, which appeals to adults and children alike. The cottage benefits from most modern amenities, including oil fired central heating throughout. The latter makes it a cosy retreat whatever the time of year.
In addition gas and electricity, towels and bed linen are included at no additional cost in the rental price.
The cottage has adjacent parking, and an enclosed garden with a decking area for enjoying the out-of-doors. In addition the local play park is situated close by along with the local football pitch. (Please note for safety reasons young children should not be left unattended).
For the comfort of all our visitors Fois a Chridhe operates strict NO Smoking and NO pets policies.

Visit Scotland awarded Fois a Chridhe a 3* PLUS award. Whilst all the other rooms easily reached four star status the living room was deemed slightly too small for a four star award. This affected the overall grading. Feedback from our guests however has been overwhelming and we know you will not be disappointed. During the inspection we also gained a Walkers Welcome and Children Welcome status.
Fois a Chridhe can sleep up to 6, plus one infant under the age of 2, in comfort. Two of the three bedrooms are upstairs, one with bunk beds and an ensuite shower room and the other with a double bed and ensuite bath and shower room. The two upstairs bedrooms are large with walk-in wardrobes and can easily accommodate a travel cot if required.
With another bathroom and smaller double bedroom downstairs, the cottage is ideal for those with accessibility limitations. The rear entrance to the property benefits from an access ramp and is suitable for a wheelchair of up to 2'3' width.
The cottage is romantic both in setting and finish but is also equipped to meet the practical needs of those holidaying with babies and young children.
Most of the downstairs floor covering, apart from the bedroom, is tiled for practicality and is easy to maintain.
Fois a Chridhe has modern laundry facilities and many safety features such as stair gates, bath mats and socket covers. A travel cot and highchair are available if required.
The house adjoins another privately owned property but is completely separate from it with gardens at opposite ends to ensure quiet and privacy for both.
