A very important design factor of this luxury highland holiday cottage was light - so we have endeavoured to make all rooms as light and bright as possible to enable guests to enjoy the magnificent mix of modern and antique within the barn conversion. The main rooms are positioned to gain full advantage of sunlight at all times. The kitchen/lounge/vestibule doors are old pitch pine from a local monastery.
Camerons Cottage has full double glazing throughout and a log boiler central heating system. There is also a wood burning stove for the colder nights which makes the cottage very cosy. The cottage is fully insulated making it warm and cosy throughout the winter months. Entrance to the open plan kitchen/dining room/living room can be gained from the main hall way. Both front and back doors ensure a light, bright entrance allowing plenty of light to flow into the hallway.
Kitchen & Dining area
The open plan kitchen with dining area and lounge has four windows which look out on to spectacular highland views. Whether standing at the sink, sitting at the breakfast bar or eating at the dining table there are stunning views to the woodland and mountains beyond.
Top of the range equipment is installed - ceramic hob with extractor fan - built in electric fan oven and integral dishwasher, microwave and spacious fridge/freezer and washing machine. Crockery and cutlery comprising of 12 place settings are supplied along with everything one might possibly need in a truly luxury kitchen. There are also baking tins and trays, a toastie maker and an electric whisk. All essential cleaning equipment is provided under the sink along with dishwasher tablets.
A breakfast bar separates the kitchen/living area with bar stools and a radio/CD player. The open plan dining area is furnished with cottage style chairs around a large solid antique pine dining table seating six very comfortably and making each meal relaxing and enjoyable. We have positioned a large framed wall map of the Highlands to help visitors plan their day trips over breakfast.
The spacious lounge enjoys light streaming in through large windows to the floor which look out over the farm fields and the woodland and mountains beyond. It is a very relaxing room especially when the wood burning stove is alight. There are two comfortable 3-seater sofas and a red leather winged chair next to the wood burning stove.
