Rockpool House sits only a few metres from the shore of Loch Sunart on the beautiful Ardnamurchan Peninsula in a west highland coastal setting is blessed with a stunning view south, across the loch, to the mountains and glens beyond.
At the heart of Ardnamurchan, close to the villages of Strontian, Salen and Acharacle, it is the ideal base for walking, cycling, nature-watching, fishing and touring. The road by it leads to the most westerly point on mainland Britain, passing through Glenborrodale where there is a RSPB reserve and a new distillery. About 7 miles to the north is the Ariundle Oakwood Nature Reserve with ancient moss covered oaks; a remnant of the Atlantic oak forest which once covered most of the west coast.
Completed in 2011, the house’s design makes the most of its magnificent situation, with all windows (except the one in the utility room!) benefiting from a sea view. The double letting bedroom to the front of the house benefits from the most amazing views up and down the sea loch, with its adjacent upstairs sitting area having windows from floor to ceiling to give it a "wow factor". The self-catering apartment located beside the main house and accommodating 2 guests, also has a floor to ceiling window facing the loch to provide equally breath-taking views.
Wildlife abounds in the area, with otters, seals, porpoises, eagles and other sea birds spotted most days from both the main house and the self-catering apartment.
