the lookout in a nutshell

The Lookout at Ronachan House is a beautifully secluded and private one bedroom apartment that is perfect for romantic getaways, or small family breaks alike thanks to the flexibility of the living space which can accommodate 2 people in a fold down sofa bed.

You access the property from a private decking area straight into the open plan living dining area with dual aspect views over Ronachan grounds. From here you can access the modern well equipped kitchen and the hallway which leads to the luxury bathroom and king size bedroom. There is a comfortable sofa bed in the living room to accommodate two extra people if there are more than 2 people in your party.

The Lookout has dual aspect views over both sides of Ronachan House grounds, and if you fancy a chilled evening on your private BBQ decking area you can look right across the Sound of Jura to the island views beyond and watch the sunset which is always a sight to behold on a clear night.

The white sandy beach of Ronachan Bay is directly accessed from the bottom of the sweeping lawn at the front of the property where you can enjoy activities calm or adventurous, whichever mood takes you.
