Lake (Loch?) side holiday homes/cottages in Scotland

Loch Tay and Loch Lomond Holiday Parks are where we send tourists who want to go ‘outdoors’ but haven’t yet made it across the threshold of realising that the attraction of being outdoors in Scotland is you can be away from droves of other people. Its one step up from Centre Parks. After that then you are probably on to Loch Google … and finding your own way in the world.
My point here is that Scotland is a big place with a lot of lochs. Depending what you want Loch Tay might be ideal, but its not quite my idea of rural tranquility.Posted 4 years agoKunstlerMember
Maybe have a look for a cottage on the shore of Loch Maree. It’s a big loch with multiple islands to explore by canoe, and although I’m not sure what might be rideable from the door (Tollaidh path, probably) some of the best biking anywhere is not far away (20 – 30 mins drive to Torridon).
There’s also Acharacle on Loch Shiel. I’m not sure about how much biking is available there but you have a large loch to explore and beaches and lovely walking in the area.Posted 4 years agopiemonsterMember

We’ve just booked a week in this place. 11 miles from the nearest public road.
Lets dogs in, and it’s by a loch.Posted 4 years ago

We spent 2 weeks on Eilean Shona last June, in Red Cottage.Posted 4 years ago
Small island with no vehicles, shops or anything. About as close to deserted as you’ll get. Our cottage was in the forest on its own but a 2 min walk from the loch side.
Only neighbours were deer, pine martins and a cheeky blackbird, all of whom wandered around near the cottage.
The dog loved it, as did we.
Even the drive to get the boat to the island is pretty cool, a good 5 miles of singletrack road seeming to lead to nowhere.
One of the 3 other sets of guests had kayaks with them and spent most of their time paddling about, would be handy if you wanted to see the mainland too as there are only boats across 2 times a week.
We will be going back at some point….
