How would you like to spend your days? A coastal walk with splendid views across to the Isle of Skye? Strolling among traditional croft lands or native woodlands? Or, for the more active, exploring the coast and offshore islands in a sea kayak?
Ferry Cottage was once the waiting room for passengers travelling by steamer and sailing boat to and from Balmacara. Situated on a narrow country lane in the small village of Glaick, the one-storey cottage has magnificent coastal views from the master bedroom and sitting room.
Its historic character has been preserved in the original wall lamps and doors. If you fancy heading inland rather than hitting the beach, the woodland walks around Lochalsh go on for miles.

Croft land, saltmarsh, lochs and coastline are just some of the varied landscapes you'll discover at Balmacara. The traditional Highland estate covers 2550 hectares and includes the early 19th century village of Plockton, as well as an original 18th century mill house and ice house.
Balmacara Square was the original heart of the estate and lies about a mile away, a cluster of 18th century farm steadings and other buildings. Here you'll find a cafe and visitor centre. For stocking up on supplies head to Kyle of Lochalsh, three miles away, a whitewashed harbour village that looks across to the Isle of Skye. Easy access to the Isle of Skye is now possible by road bridge.
