Coorie Cottage at Castaway Cove

Coorie Cottage is a one bedroom cottage built of natural stone and timber, parts of which are nearly 300 year old.  The cottage comes equipped with all the modern appliances including satellite TV and 4G mobile high speed internet.  Centrally heated along with a wood burning stove and double glazing mean that the cottage is always cosy warm.  Set in beautiful grounds with 360 degree views there is a decking area with built in BBQ and sunken hot tub with complete privacy from the outside world.

With a fully equipped kitchen, a vaulted ceiling bedroom and a lounge with wonderful views out over the gardens you are sure to relax.

Solid oak floors with sheep skin rugs, flat screen TV, a selection of CDs, DVDs, books and the radio you might not leave the cottage although we would recommend strolling in the grounds or swimming in the loch for the truly immersive experience.

Reduce your carbon footprint

Provision of energy is a very significant issue for us as Altnaharrie is not connected to the National Grid.  We produce nearly all of our enery from renewables with a mixture of micro-hydro and solar photovoltaic panels.  We put a great deal of effort into ensuring that we and our guests have the comfort of high-tech at the same time as being ultra-conservative and eco-friendly with our energy.  Your stay with us will actually reduce your carbon footprint.

Fully Equipped Kitchen

All appliances in the cottage have been chosen for their eco credentials and include an induction hob, electric oven, fridge, microwave, Nespresso coffee machine, washing machine and tumble dryer.  We supply a good selection of local eggs, butter, milk, coffee, tea, spices and other condiments.  Along with the basics such as kitchen roll, tin foil, washing and cleaning materials.

The kitchen is fully stocked with glasswear, cookwear and crockery.  you really could just turn up and relax!

Romantic Bedroom

The vaulted ceiling bedroom is a wonderful cosy, romantic space with a solid oak four-poster bed.  Choose from a selection of pillows including duck feather.  A velux window over the bed allows for star gazing at night whilst snuggled up in Fairtrade, organic, natural raw cotton luxury bed linen.


We provide a good selection of soaps and washes for you to enjoy in the bath that also has a shower attachment.  Bath towels, towelling robes, and other accoutrements are supplied.

Relaxing Lounge

With unlimited wood supplied for the wood burning stove, relax in the reclining leather arm chair or real leather couch. 

Eat at the fabulous ‘one off’ driftwood and glass topped dining table.  Rummage through maps of the area, local history books or the selection of board games and switch off from the world.

Scandinavian style wooden hot tub

With it’s own integral boiler that heats up by burning wood, setting the hot tub up in advance ready for a night in the tub under the stars, is the perfect excuse to open a bottle of wine and watch the loch go by.

The hot tub is sunken into the wooden decking which has fabulous views across the loch to the surrounding mountains.  Next to the decking is a stone built natural BBQ along with a seating area for al fresco dining.
