Kingairloch Estate is located on the Morvern Peninsula along the coastline of Loch Linnhe and is only a three hour's drive from Edinburgh or Glasgow.
Within it's 14,000 acres of staggering scenery are eight unique self catering properties ranging in size from accommodating two, four, six and ten. All properties stand alone and have their own character with each having magnificent views of the mountains, glens lochs or rivers.
They are all well equipped with most having either wood burning stoves or fireplaces and up to three pets are welcomed in each.
Change overs on either a Friday or Saturday for seven night breaks, plus weekend and mid-week breaks are also available.
Guests to Kingairloch will enjoy the rugged untouched beauty of the West Coast of Scotland and also get to see a wide variety of wildlife such as red deer, otters and eagles. There are numerous walking and cycling routes on the estate and when in season guests can enjoy fishing and other traditional sporting activities.
We've been coming to Kingairloch for a number of years but this was our first time at the Old School. The house is in a fantastic, quiet location with superb sea views. It is warm and comfortable, the kitchen is very well equipped, comfy beds and large towels all adding to a positive experience. The weather wasn't very kind but provided ever changing sea views and lots of rainbows. Wildlife included otters, eagles, pinemarten, bats and unidentified marine life.
We booked The Old Post Office for a friend's wedding on the Estate and so glad we did! We loved it and would definitely choose the same cottage again.
The approach road to the estate was long, single track and extremely bumpy. It is in serious need of repair to potholes, however, was probably my favourite stretch of road in the Highlands, as it had mountains on one side and Loch on the other. The views were stunning! Sheep, vows and red deer frequent the road too.
The loch is stunning. The whole area is breathtakingly beautiful. This is no ordinary Highland estate.

We have just spent the most restorative week in Kingairloch - The Steadings was great- lovely to have all of that space. The wildlife is sensational- even the pine martins made an appearance. Hiking up and around the Horseshoe was wonderful and the views make the thigh burn all worthwhile. Hope to return again and again!
If you are looking for a quiet location then Pier Cottage will probably suit you. It is in a very peaceful location with an abundance of wildlife close at hand - deer, Pine Martens, various bird life including eagles. If you do book a stay at Pier Cottage take some peanuts or peanut butter with you to feed the Pine Marten, you should be rewarded with regular nightly visits. Lots of other wildlife can also be seen without having to venture very far from Pier Cottage. Should you want to eat out then the nearest places are some 30 - 40 mins drive from the cottage.
I think the estate and its area are hidden gems. It’s beautifully maintained and the workforce where cheerful and helpful. Lunch at the Whitehouse and Kilcamb lodge recommended, as is the community cafe in Lochaline. Some good forestry walks too. The road across to the lighthouse takes you across the edge of an amazing volcanic crater. I would happily return.
