There are some properties that we struggle to put into words, the Farmhouse on the magical family-owned Coulin Estate is one of them. Tucked neatly between some of Scotland's most notable Munros, this 4 bed property sits against a dramatic backdrop, guaranteed to take your breath away.
This cosy, country farmhouse boasts 4 beautiful bedrooms; two twins and two king-size, all with plush, comfortable bedding and custom made tweed headboards. There are 3 bathrooms in the property, all with large baths and showers in which to submerge yourself and unwind after a day roaming the hillsides.
The kitchen and dining area have a warm, welcoming, family feel and have everything that you, your family, or your chef, could require to cook a traditional Scottish feast! Keep a look out of the windows to see the estate's two Highland ponies (Rum and Canna) freely roaming, or some wonderful red squirrels.
The main sitting room is unique and very snug with its natural wood panelling. Hand embroidered cushions adorn the furniture, arranged around a beautiful open wood burning fire. Board games for all the family are within easy reach in cupboards to either side.
The property is decorated with subtle, mellow Farrow & Ball tones, that provide a modern day twist to the traditional country farmhouse atmosphere. With sumptuous, cosy soft furnishings throughout and two wood burning fires, you can curl up, relax and warm your toes after exploring the beautiful surrounding Scottish landscape.
The house is situated directly next to Loch Coulin which also leads to Loch Clair, with level walks along the shorelines. You may bump into the occasional walker, but it's more likely you will spot some of the local wildlife. The Estate is home to resident Golden Eagle, Otter and some incredibly rare Black Throated Divers to name just a few.
Peace and quiet are in serious supply here as the house is set well off the beaten track. You'll need a substantial car or 4x4 to get to this property - adding to the feeling of having completely 'escaped'. The owners welcome visitors to explore the available walks, lochs and hills, making this the perfect property for hill walkers, mountain bikers and families with four legged, tail wagging friends.
There is so much to do, see and visit in the surrounding area while feeling completely relaxed and cut off from busy day to day life.
The world famous Torridon hotel is located right on the doorstep of the estate and is high on our list of recommendations for evening dinner or even lunch.
We love the Midge Bite Cafe in Auchnasheen for a quick cuppa or bit of lunch.
As you come into the estate, you will drive along the foot of Bein Eighe and just a few miles further and you can find the beautiful Victoria Falls.
There is some incredible wildlife to be found on the estate, including a Sea Eagle, Whooper Swans (wintering from Iceland) and a Pinemartin. Head further up the snowy hilltops and you might even be lucky enough to spot a Ptarmigan!
Just along the road, in the car park of Bein Eighe, you may be lucky enough to spot the resident stag (who can be seen in our pictures). If you're looking to experience Scotland at it's best, you simply won't beat this location.
