Am Bathach is a lodge cottage which has been refurbished using traditional stonework and cedar logs as part of the renovation of a cow barn, and makes a superb retreat for two, with local tweeds and classic Scottish furnishings throughout, alongside all the modern amenities you could want. Watch the Hebridean sheep grazing the hills of heather and you can have no doubt about which country you're in.
The area is world renowned for its stunning scenery, wildlife, food and drink and friendly local communities. Not so well known is the low rainfall and mild climate due to the Atlantic Gulf Stream, with glorious summers and beautiful long sunsets throughout the year. The dark sky is a stunning sight with the stars clearly visible, particularly here in Altass.
The cottage is situated in the small hamlet of Rosehall which is surrounded by magnificent salmon fishing rivers and trout lochs, woodland walks and a welcoming local hotel serving delicious food.
A perfect base for touring, being based midway between west, north and east coasts, where the varied coastline is a magnet for wildlife and birdwatching.
