Property Description

Ard Daraich Garden Studio is a self-catering romantic cottage for two. Set within the eight -acre garden, started by Constance Spry and now a large and well-known collection of Rhododendrons, the Studio offers accommodation within easy reach of several ‘Corbetts’ and only a short walk from a sandy beach.

The living space is open plan with fitted kitchen and integrated appliances at one end and wood burning stove with two sofas at the other. French doors open onto a small self-contained garden and terrace looking towards the River Gour and on to Ben Nevis. Upstairs is open-plan with king-size bed and ensuite bathroom and more spectacular views.

The Garden Studio has been converted to a high standard of eco friendliness, with the under floor heating boosted by a wood burning stove and logs from the garden. There is a passive ventilation system and thick insulation, whilst inside there is a drying room to get outdoor clothes dry after expeditions in bad weather.

This is a cosy cottage in a beautiful place, accessible but with the relaxation of somewhere remote.

Anna & Norrie Maclaren, Owners

Artist and Gardener, Anna Raven and her husband Norrie Maclaren have lived at Ard Daraich for over 15 years. Norrie took over the Hill Garden and Shrub Nursery in 1999 from his parents who bought Ard Daraich in 1969. Once the holiday home of Constance Spry, The Maclarens, both father and sons, developed a garden that is now of special interest. On her arrival, Anna converted the potting shed into a self catering cottage within the garden, making it an ideal retreat for garden lovers. The main house offers a self-catering option for 5 and Anna paints in her Studio whilst Norrie had a career in photography, film and television. The house is full of art and personal memorabilia and The Maclarens welcome everyone as friends. In the spirit of Highland hospitality!
