Nestled in the hills outside Glenelg, Cosaig Cottage is the perfect West coast hideaway. Full of character and beautifully positioned with views over stunning countryside towards Skye, Cosaig is wonderfully private whilst being within walking distance of the renowned Glenelg Inn, a village shop and local amenities. This romantic refuge is a sanctuary from the outside world and provides a great base to enjoy the West coast.
With whitewashed stone walls, open fireplaces, flagstone floors and an archetypal corrugated iron roof, Cosaig is brimming with charm and character. This two bedroom but ‘n’ ben has a cosy living room, kitchen diner, two double bedrooms and a downstairs bathroom. The traditional two up two down layout is truly enchanting just the way it is but, we believe there is scope to extend the accommodation further subject to statutory consents. The addition of an enlarged kitchen and creation of a third bedroom would transform this cottage whilst adding to the overall appeal and capital value.
Glenelg is a picturesque settlement which until 200 years ago was the main crossing point to the island. A small ferry still makes the short crossing to Skye and is the only manual turntable commercial ferry in the world. The narrow strait has fierce currents but these make an ideal playground for numerous seals and otters which can easily been seen from the ferry. It is a memorable drive to the ferry on either side with narrow winding roads reaching an impressive elevation on the mainland. The area around Glenelg is a walker’s paradise. You can explore any or all of the Five Sisters and for the really ambitious there is the Cluanie Ridge, which takes in no fewer than seven Munros in one long scenic hike. Alternatively, keep a boat moored in the bay at Glenelg and use it to explore the many secret coves and sandy beaches nearby. With great diving, sailing and kayaking opportunities, Glenelg is a haven for the intrepid adventurer.
The famous Glenelg Inn, described by Bill Bryson as an “outpost of comfort and graciousness”, is a mere half mile amble from the cottage and serves as an ideal pit stop to recharge the batteries after a long day exploring.
