Digital Detox Retreat, near Glencoe (039)

When James Bond drove down to Glen Etive he was returning to his ancestral home of “Skyfall” but you can make this holiday house your home and find out why this area is so special.

What is on offer here is a scaled down version of a comfortable traditional lodge that replaced the old shooting lodge back in 1982, which by default due to the remote location, can now be offered as a “digital detox” destination as there is no WiFI, no TV signal and no mobile reception. So if you are looking for a holiday house that is all about the walking and the outdoor activities, and you enjoy dining together in the evening and generally socialising together without the distractions of the modern way of life, then this could be perfect for you.

Within it is comfortably furnished with a lovely sitting room with open fire, nice dining room and well equipped kitchen. There is one bedroom and shower room available at ground level, with the rest of the accommodation on the first floor. At the rear of the building is a large rod room, which is a large practical room, making it ideal to store all your outdoor equipment, heavy clothing and appropriate footwear. A kennel is available to use or dogs can be left in this rod room. The grounds are private and there is ample parking for all your cars. Whilst you may be lucky enough to see deer in the grounds, you will only miss the fantastic view over Loch Etive and surrounding hills when you leave.

Living Space

Reception rooms

The sitting room is a large space with comfortable sofas and armchairs with an open fire as the focus point. The room is decorated with pictures of local landscapes whilst some of the best landscape scenes can be seen out of the windows. There is also a small study off the sitting room, which is like a writing room and ideal for one or two people to part from the rest of the group for some peace and quiet. A DVD player and monitor can be plugged in for watching a DVD. Additionally there is the rod room, which traditionally stores fishing rods, but is also an ideal space to store extra kit you may require during your stay.

Kitchen / Dining

The dining room is simply furnished with a dining table that can seat up to 12 people. The picture windows look out to the front overlooking the lawn and across the glen. The dining room and kitchen can be found next door to each other, allowing for easy transportation of food. The kitchen was upgraded in 2016 and is well equipped with wall units and a stainless steel gas range with 5 hobs, grill and double oven, so is ideal to cook for the number required. A microwave, dishwasher and large upright fridge and separate upright freezer are also provided. Additionally there is a large pantry area where further dry goods can be stored and here you will also find the washing machine and tumble dryer.

Argyllshire

Argyllshire is one of the larger of the Scottish counties. Located in the west, Argyll incorporates the coastline and isles between the Mull of Kintyre up to Ardnamurchan. The area’s biggest attraction is its immense range of landscapes; with miles of rugged cliffs and mountainous highland scenery to discover, as well as beautiful woodlands, the area is a dream destination for nature lovers. Why not visit the magnificent volcanic rock island of Staffa, where the puffins make their summer home? Or join the Beaver Trail to spot the elusive mammal recently reintroduced to the area. You could also take in the Gulf of Corryvreckan on the island at Jura, the third largest natural whirlpool in the world! Island hopping tours are a great way to discover the isles of Argyll, and for keen walkers, the mountainous landscapes of the likes of Ardgour, and the westerly range of Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park are well worth a visit. Towns to take in include Oban, a resort town nestled on the Firth of Lorn; Dunoon, home to the famous Cowal Highland Gathering, an annual highland games; and Campbeltown, the county’s historic centre for whisky, fishing and ship-building.  

Highlands and Islands

This region takes in Inverness-shire, Ross-shire, Sutherland, Caithness and the islands include the Inner and Outer Hebrides as well as Orkney and the Shetland islands. For spectacular scenery the Highlands of Scotland provides some of the best, with a huge expanse of area full of mountains, lochs and glens full of romance, wildlife and scenic beauty. The heritage of this area includes Culloden, taking the ferry to the Isle of Skye or just taking in one of the many castles like Eilean Donan. There is also an immense range of wildlife to be found.
