Our stunning spa home is located in the rural heart of the Highlands & has 3 double bedrooms + 1 single bed (Apple bedroom as per first picture in this listing) with an optional pull-out extra bed underneath, + 2 bathrooms. We offer B&B or Self-Catering for up to 8 guests who rent the whole property.

Der Wohnraum

Katie and I own a stunning, luxurious Guest House / Bed and Breakfast or Self Catering cottage in the rural heart of the North West Scottish Highlands.

We invite you to stay for a couple of days, a weekend, a week or longer in one of our beautifully furnished double / twin bedrooms or alternatively use the property for a self-catering break from a minimum of three days and for up to eight guests.

We have a lovely home in an idyllic location. Our cottage is at the top of the valley of Inverailort (Lochailort). We are surrounded by mountains and have a lovely stream flowing past at the bottom of our garden.

The sea is just a short 10 minute walk away (2 minute drive) and geographically - we are extremely well placed for day excursions being located at the three-way intersection which offers you easy access to Fort William, Mallaig, Roshven / Glenuig, Kinlochmoidart, Acharachle, Ardnamurchan, Arisaig, Glencoe, Loch Lomond, Inverness, Loch Ness, Skye, and the Outer Isles. Each journey being full of the hidden gems of Scottish beauty and the most beautiful scenery.

The ‘Harry Potter’ Jacobite steam train literally passes our home four times a day during the summer months and is an amazing sight when viewed from just a few metres away.

There is so much to do in the area - aside from sightseeing, why not take a boat trip to the amazing Knoydart or the outer Islands of Rhum, Canna, Muck, Skye,and Eigg?

Alternately you can hire our kayaks in two hour time slots for some local freshwater loch exploration (sea water also possible - ask for details).

We now also have five bikes that can be rented for the day or half day if you prefer to stay local and get some exercise!.

Walk along the beautiful 'silver sands' at Morar or play a nine-hole round of golf at Traigh - quite possibly one of the most stunning golf settings in Scotland.

Take a day trip on the Jacobite Steam train from Fort William to Mallaig and experience the Harry Potter viaduct at Glenfinnan and some of the most spectacular scenery in the world.

If you like hiking or hill walking there can be no better place to get out and about - our local mountains and well trodden trails offer some spectacular scenery - with beauty unfolding before your eyes with every step you take. Ask about some of the less well journeyed local hikes that provide some beautiful hidden secrets..!

Our house has four letting bedrooms - each is very tastefully renovated in French Renaissance style with traditional period furniture and every care has been taken to ensure your maximum comfort.

We have three luxurious double bedrooms each with their own wash hand basins, plus one very elegant twin bedded or single room.

We have a newly refurbished shower room in a modern / contemporary style, and a newly refurbished bathroom in a ‘traditional period finish’ with a modern twist!

Please see our other listings for the self-catering information where you will have your own access to both kitchen and dining room areas and the facilities therein..

The house is clad in half-round logs and is finished in a 'rustic Scandinavian cabin effect, with surrounding decking and a decked terrace overlooking the burn, (which is also accessed from the French doors in the living room and is a beautiful place to enjoy afternoon tea on a nice sunny day).

We have an adjacent 'spa' cabin at the end of the property which houses a six-seat Jacuzzi hot tub and 6-8 seat sauna – an ideal way to relax after a hard day in the Highlands! There is a cold ‘douche’ style shower located in between the two. There is an additional charge for the use of this facility in order to help towards the upkeep, energy and maintenance costs, plus laundering of the spa towels etc.

Well behaved / trained pets are welcome but unfortunately can not permitted inside the house or bedrooms for hygiene and sanitary purposes.

We have a strict no-smoking policy please anywhere inside the house. Smokers are very welcome to make use of our outdoor work shed for smoking if the weather is inclement.

All guests are welcome to make use of the dining room, conservatory, , bathroom or shower room and living room with large 8-seater sofa and fire.

We have Free-view television with a good quality surround sound system plus are a large number of DVD'S and music C.D's available to use, in addition to numerous books, travel guides, maps and games for guests to take advantage of if desired.

We have complimentary high-speed wireless Internet available for those who need to keep in touch with the 21st century..!

We own two young Springer Spaniel / Labrador dogs that keep a low profile and who are well trained, know their place and not the sort to be jumping all over people!

We also keep chickens (fresh organic eggs for breakfast!) and grow our own vegetables in our poly-tunnel throughout the summer season.

Two and three course dinner menus are available for those who might prefer to eat in. We use the freshest ingredients (our own where possible and if not - sourced locally as much as we can). We will try and remember to send you the menu of the week as close to your arrival as we can. Please let us know as soon as possible if you are interested in having any dinners with us as we are 27 miles from the nearest shops and therefore need to plan in advance.

Finally - a brief insight into our background so you can be assured we have some depth of experience to take care of you.............(URL HIDDEN)I, (Gary), have spent some 20 plus years in the Catering Industry - providing all aspects of catering up to and including for various members of the Royal Family. In addition - I have spent around 15 years renovating property for high profile clients in London, France and Australia.

My wife Katie is from Poland and has a Masters Degree in Business Administration and has previously spent over five years managing our Property Rentals portfolio in London. She is also an excellent cook! We married in August 2010 and following our wedding we decided to re-locate back to my homeland where I grew up as a child and begin a new chapter of our lives together.

Katie gave birth to our beautiful daughter Maia on 25th February 2012 - our latest addition to the Mo-Dhachaidh family. She is the most adorable, delightful young girl and sure to melt your heart :-) Our second child is on the way and due in Feb 2015...Our latest addition is Eoin (pronounced Owen) - born in February 2015. He is very cute too!


We love to take care of new friends and look forward to meeting you here one day.

My sister and I stayed in the Cappuccino room. The room was cosy and comfortable. The ceiling fan was helpful on the rare hot days in the Highlands. The house was easy to find and the surroundings were quiet and secluded. Both Gary and Katie are excellent hosts, friendly and helpful. Communication was prompt and efficient. The house in itself was very clean and comfortable. The shared bathroom was spotless and well equipped. The breakfast was excellent and beautifully presented. It was a great pleasure to meet Gary and Katie's children, who are gorgeous and well behaved. We absolutely loved to have the opportunity to use the spa ( sauna and the hot tub). It was beautifully presented with candles, ice cold drink and calm music. I would definitely recommend Gary and Katie's place and wish them good luck in the future and with the arrival of baby number three.

Wonderful b&b great location for exploring Arisaig and Mallaig. We were made to feel very welcome and the breakfast was fantastic, lots of choice! The highlight of our whole trip was the kayaking on the nearby loch. Gary loaded up the kayaks for us, gave us a safety briefing, and we went on our way, exploring the beaches, bothy and Islands, we even had a steam train pass by. After 2hours of kayaking Gary collected the kayaks.. all for £15 each! We then spent the evening in the Spa. Thank you Gary and Katie for your hospitality, we will be recommending you to friends and family. Amy & Annie

We were disappointed with the size of the room. With the floor fold out bed taking up a lot of space, it was difficult to find a place to put our bags etc. Also it was difficult to literally get out of the fold out bed ....otherwise the welcome and information provided re places to go were very good. The breakfasts and dinner were excellent. We enjoyed very much the area.I

Antwort von Gary & Katie:
It is unfortunate that you did not find the room to your satisfaction despite me checking that it was appropriate for you just when you made the reservation. It may have helped too if you had mentioned your wife's disability when booking as we would almost certainly have recommended another room for you. For the benefit of any potential guests viewing this - the second bed is not a fold-out bed - it is a pull-out floor level bed with an extremely comfortable mattress as described here on the site :-). Sorry it was not what you expected.

Gary and Katie made our stay at Lochailort lovely. Our favourite day was a trip to the white Sands beach, which we wouldn't have found if it weren't for Gary's detailed instructions! Breakfast every morning was wonderful and it was clear that Gary & Katie work very hard to keep everyone happy. We enjoyed a couple of nice dinners at the inn down the road, so would recommend that too. Thank you for a lovely stay, Alice, miranda & jocelyn

We spent 3 nights here and had the most amazing time, thank you Gary and Katie, for making us feel so welcome from the minute we arrived, when Gary and the dogs met us at the train station! Gary and Katie's beautiful home is in a perfect setting for a relaxing break. You are in a rural idyll yet close enough for day trips to the beaches and islands. There are many options for trips from Lochailort. We managed a day trip to the Isle of Rum by public transport. Gary has lots of local knowledge if there's anything you want to know about. There are no shops nearby, but there is a local inn about 5-10 minutes walk from Gary and Katie's place. This was a very welcoming place too. There are so many thoughtful touches to make guests here feel comfortable and pampered. Your home is beautifully finished to a high standard and spotlessly clean. Bedlinens, towels and furnishings are high quality. Guests can use the comfortable sitting room with its library of books and dvds for all tastes. We found the Apple room small but perfectly formed, ideal for us as mother and adult daughter, with a pull out bed which slid out easily. I tried both beds and both mattresses were equally comfortable. Breakfasts are fabulous, cooked to order using the best ingredients, including new laid eggs. All beautifully presented in your bright mountainside dining room. Last but not least - the spa! If you visit, you should definitely book it. There is a small charge, but well worth it. Fluffy robes, towels and slippers are provided, twinkly lights, candles...best sauna and hot tub ever, we loved it! Total relaxation after a day of walking through the beautiful surroundings! We absolutely loved staying here and would recommend it to anyone!

We do hope you will return and stay again - it was lovely to meet you both. Warm regards from Gary, Katie and our wee family :-)

Katie and I have left the city life behind us in 2010 to pursue a more relaxed and calm lifestyle here in rural Scotland where I grew up.

It has been a total change for us after living for 7 years together in a cramped attic room in North London. Although we sometimes miss the hustle and bustle a big city brings, there is simply nothing that compensates more than when we look out of our windows and see the beautiful scenery here.

The mountains are majestic and powerful. The air is clean and on a clear night the skies are heavenly! The water is pure and organic - as it should be...

We love to travel and have seen a lot of the world, but equally - we love to be hosts and pride ourselves on being very attentive to our guests needs.

We wish everyone who comes to our home a very warm welcome, a pleasant and happy stay, and a safe onward journey...
