Selma is a self catering cottage on the shores of Loch Duich in a village called Ratagan, located in the popular area known as Skye and Lochalsh in the Highlands of Scotland. We are just a few miles from the historic and world famous Eilean Donan Castle. Ratagan is an ideal base for touring the beautiful Highlands whether you wish to visit the Isle of Skye, Fort William or the Inverness area, all are easily accessable for day trips.
“Absolutly excellent place to stay to explore scottish highlands. You feel at home, the view and coziness of living room is so ideal after long day out. Kitchen is more than fully equipped, it simly has pretty much everything to cook breakfasts, dinner, prepare meals. Powerful heating, so you are never feel cold. Overall spotless clean and great value I would say, its much bigger then the photos/idea of cottage suggests. The hosts are attentive and reply immidiatelly. To sum it up a perfect stay!”
A delightful little place to stay and newly finished in May 2019 'The Wee House' can be found right next door to our own (slightly bigger) house, 'Heisgeir'. We will be on hand just next door to give you a warm welcome and to ensure your stay with us, and in our area, is both enjoyable and peaceful. Being born and brought up in the area we hope our local knowledge will allow you make the most of your stay.
“I think the fact Murray built this accommodation himself shines through in the design considerations made for guests. The property feels entirely private and has a fantastic mountain vista from the main-room. It is very well kitted out with mod-cons and surprisingly (for rural Scotland) fast wifi. The hosts clealy care about their guests as they left us fresh milk and tea bags etc; little touches like that can mean a lot. Murray himself gave us a warm welcome and was very hospitable. Its a great jumping-off point for Skye, but could also serve as a base for those wanting to knock off a few munros. Couldnt fault the place.”
A beautiful cosy, newly refurbished two bedroom forestry house. Situated on the edge of Loch Duich boasting some of the best views across the loch and the Five Sister's mountains. This is a perfect place to stay for a relaxing holiday, great for walkers, birdwatchers and sightseeing, ideal for exploring the Highlands and the Isle of Skye. Suitable for couples and families, the superking bedroom can be adapted to two 3ft twin beds for maximum flexibility
“Helen's house is superb. The view over the loch is amazing, just to wake up to this every morning was so special and never got tiring. Ratagan is a quiet community so peace and tranquillity abound and getting to sleep is no problem after all the fresh air! The property has free wifi and sky TV, together with Netflix, so entertainment is always at hand. The house is beautifully decorated and furnished. We especially loved the "50 shades of Scotland" print. The kitchen is spacious and well equipped, the living area is comfortable and the extra seating area overlooking the garden and loch is bright and airy. Ratagan is within easy reach of Fort William, Loch Ness and the Isle of Skye so makes a superb base for exploring Scotland's West Coast. All in all staying in Helen's house will ensure you have a great holiday with lots to explore in the local region, and a great relaxing evening at the end of each day.”
