The Writer's Retreat is an idyllic refuge for romantics, lovers of nostalgia or those looking for creative inspiration. Situated in the Pool House grounds, this cosy hideaway offers a more private space but with all the comforts of a serviced guest room. Whether you are an artist, an author or are simply looking for a relaxing weekend break surrounded by sea and rugged mountain landscapes, this quirky combo of retro living spaces is bound to appeal. There is a delightful boathouse for sleeping in, complete with traditional king-size Scottish box bed, cathedral ceiling, woodburning stove and mood-lighting. The comfy sofa is the perfect spot to watch the sunset over the sea or watch otters and seals swim past. The bathroom has underfloor heating, a huge bath for two plus a separate double shower cubicle. As a concession to modern living, the television has Sky Entertainment Plus and includes Sky movies.
Next door is a gorgeous, cosy shepherd hut. The perfect place to relax and indulge your artistic talents. Whether you like to sketch, paint, draw or write the next best-selling novel, you will find plenty of inspiration inside and outside the hut. There is a small fridge to keep your wine chilled and a kettle for brewing up a cuppa. The windows overlook the fast flowing river just a few feet away, or open the stable door for views across the bay and to the hills beyond.
Outside there is a small grassed area with patio, seating and a table to make the most of the view and a hot tub to luxuriate in; with perhaps a glass of "bubbly"!
During the summer months you have a short stroll to the main house through the garden for your "full Scottish".
In the winter enjoy a cosy lie in and help yourself to a delightful breakfast hamper in the shepherd hut.
