Cottage
Glayva is a luxury self catering holiday cottage set in the pretty, whitewashed fishing village of Lochcarron in north west Scotland. Lochcarron lies among some of Scotland's finest scenery and is close to Plockton, Applecross, Torridon, Shieldaig and the Isle of Skye. The cottage sits 10 metres from the shore of beautiful Loch Carron and affords uninterrupted south facing sea views over the sea loch to the hills beyond. The house was recently renovated and was sympathetically modernised to sleep four in comfort. To celebrate the renovation, the cottage was renamed Glayva. This is an English language interpretation of the Gaelic words 'gle mhath' which translate as 'very nice' or 'very good'.

The cottage has two good-sized bedrooms, one double with a large en-suite bathroom, and a spacious twin room which has an adjacent shower room. There is a large and well appointed kitchen/diner with modern SMEG appliances and a dining table which has been designed so you can look out over the loch while you dine (we've seen dolphins, porpoises and otters from the window - so keep your eyes peeled!) There's also a relaxing lounge with a woodburning stove, maps, books, games, iPod dock, CDs, DVD player, Nintendo Wii and satellite TV. As part of the renovation process the cottage was fully insulated with modern materials and new central heating and hot water systems were installed - this means that Glayva is one of the warmest and cosiest cottages around!
