Cromag (Gaelic for shepherd's crook) is a luxury shepherd hut set in its own private garden to the rear of the owner's property with views to lovely Lochcarron and the surrounding hills. This little beauty for two is packed full of character and all mod cons (sofa bed, shower room, full cooker, sink, fridge/freezer & TV/WiFi/Bluetooth). Glamping at its best and the perfect base to explore the magic of Wester Ross, Skye & Lochalsh or as a great stop over on the world class North Coast 500 route.

Location

Lochcarron, Scotland, United Kingdom

The beautiful village of Lochcarron (Lochcarrann in the native Gaelic) takes its name from the sea loch itself which is long and fjord like. Whitewashed houses stretch along its shores for approx. 2 miles with a scattering of smaller outlying settlements.
The village is the largest in the locality and boasts a number of amenities including two award winning grocery stores, both with petrol pumps; PO; cash point; friendly hotel; popular café and bistro; medical centre; library: information & heritage centre and a village hall. On the sporting front the village has its own shinty club, 9 hole golf course and sailing club as well as children’s adventure playgrounds.
The smaller townships of Strome & Ardaneaskan are a few miles towards the mouth the loch and make for a lovely cycle or short drive. Stop off at Lochcarron Weavers in Mid Strome, walk up to the deserted village of Stromemeannach on the hillside above, admire the views further along from the ruins of Strome Castle or take in a spectacular sunset from the bench at the end of the road at Ardaneaskan with Plockton and the Skye’s Cuillin mountains in the distance.
Five miles away at the head of the loch you’ll find Strathcarron with its hotel and train station, one of the stops on the famously scenic Kyle Line and a short distance further on brings you to Carron Pottery and Restaurant and Attadale Gardens.

HILL WALKING
The area is a hillwalker’s paradise with routes to suit all levels of ability from woodland and coastal walks to serious climbing. Lochcarron is central to the Achnashellach, Torridon and Kintail mountains offering a wealth of Munros and Corbetts.

Lochcarron has its own established sailing club which welcomes visitors and families. There is a slipway in front of Lochcarron Hotel and Slumbay Island near Cromag is also a safe harbour for a number of local boats. Loch Carron and neighbouring lochs are also suitable for kayaking.
Boat trips run from Plockton and Shieldaig.
GOLF
Lochcarron’s nine hole golf course with clubhouse and tea room are in a spectacular setting beside the loch at the entrance to the village. Further afield there are courses at Gairloch and Strathpeffer.
CYCLING
There are lovely roads to cycle safely in the area. For serious cyclists there are the annual Bealach Beag (44 miles) and Bealach Mor (90 miles) challenges, which incorporate Britain’s highest road climb. Mountain biking is also very popular.
