Welcome to Fois a Chridhe BOOK NOW!  AVAILABLE SUMMER 2016
Fois a Chridhe (‘Hearts at peace’ in Gaelic) is a luxury three bedroom, modern cottage nestled within the tranquil village of Morar in Inverness-shire. The cottage is a few minutes walk from the famous ‘Silver sands of Morar’, and a 5 minute drive away from Camusdarroch beach of ‘Local Hero’ fame.

Fois a Chridhe is beautifully finished and is the perfect blend of modern convenience and traditional charm, which appeals to adults and children alike. The cottage benefits from most modern amenities, including oil fired central heating throughout. The latter makes it a cosy retreat whatever the time of year. In addition gas and electricity, towels and bed linen are included. The cottage has adjacent parking, and an enclosed garden with a decking area and seating for enjoying the out-of-doors. In addition the local play park is situated closeby along with the local football pitch. (Please note for safety reasons young children should not be left unattended).

Some feedback we have received:

'The house was perfect in every sense. We went in February and took books to read, but there was too much to see and do. The swimming pool in Mallaig has a sauna and jacuzzi & an inflatable island during fun periods. The Heritage Centre next to the railway station is informative and tells us about the covert secret training that went on during WWII. Recommend the book in the Fois a Chridhe bookcase "Commando Country" that brings this serene quiet area alive with history. The property is brilliant and the special touches everywhere will delight young and old alike. A very high standard for your money and you won't be disappointed.A week wasn't enough. The kids will remeber this well into their adulthood. A word of warning. Read the leaflet on Prince Charlies Cave nr Arisaig, before you spend 4 hours trying to find it from the road maps.Loads of information available at the property'.
