our guests love our large luxury scottish holiday home

"It was a real treat to stay in this beautiful house for a week. The bed was supremely comfortable, the views from the bedroom (and everyone else's) to die for. The kitchen was one of the best equipped we have ever used. We enjoyed the snooker table a lot too!"

The Brown Family

this large luxury holiday home may be in scotland but it feels like another world

We were retreating from the world; it was really comforting to be there. We just headed north and escaped. It was glorious. In the evenings, you could walk outside and there would be this endless sky. In some ways, it was at the end of the world.

And then suddenly the world opens up in front of you and you are greeted by a garden sloping down towards a long curved white sandy beach and shallow bay. Welcome to Ronachan.

Inside the house the wonder continues as you enter through a tiled porch vestibule into a grand hallway with original wooden floors and panelled walls. There is a cosy and snug library on your right hand side with leather bound books and luscious fur throws to coorie under infront of a roaring log fire. On your left is a long dining room able to seat all of your friends and family together for evenings filled with laughter and the clinking of glasses.

Through a traditional arched dividing wall into a quiet seating area, and then into the grand marble floored kitchen with all of the amenities you could ever need to cook up a storm.
