Curlew Cottage


Highlands and Islands, Scotland

This two bedroom, four star cottage boasts a king size double bedroom and a further twin bedroom and can sleep up to four people.

The cottage has recently undergone an extensive refurbishment to include a wood burning stove, low energy lighting and heating system and a hand built Cherry wood kitchen.

Curlew Cottage is a delightful, 19th century cottage that in days past was the Pig byre to Portnellan Farm. Nowadays, Curlew is fully upgraded to a Visitscotland 4 star holiday cottage.

Located in Portnellan’s private courtyard with views across the lambing meadow to the Loch and River Dochart, this topsy turvy (living quarters upstairs, sleeping quarters downstairs) semi detached cottage has had a recent interior refurbishment to include redecorated walls, doors and ceilings, low energy LED lighting and mega flow hot water system.

To the left is a fully fitted modern hand built Cherry wood kitchen with all modern conveniences including washing machine, dishwasher, NEFF ceramic, fridge, hob, oven and combination microwave. To the right is a living and dining area with suite, writing chest, TV with SKY package and DVD and views across the lambing field across to the river and Loch Dochart where you can explore the island with its very own castle ruin.

The property is fully double glazed with low energy electric heating throughout.You can really experience living in this truly Scottish cottage, complete with three feet thick stone walls and all the comforts and conveniences of your own home. Gaze through the window or step outside your front door and you you will met by the dramatic and atmospheric mountains within Glen Dochart. A short walk across the lambing field or along the dismantled railway line takes you to the glistening waters of loch Dochart.
