Eilean Feoir, Portuairk, Ardnamurchan
Eilean Feoir meaning 'Grass Island' in Gaelic, is a tastefully decorated, bright and spacious cottage in the beautiful village of Portuairk. Occupying a peaceful spot on the hillside of the village it is only a stones throw away from the water's edge, the perfect location for a family holiday right by the beach, with magnificient views over to Sanna Bay and out to the Small Isles in the distance. Watch the tide ebb and flow from your living room window whilst you enjoy the warmth from the multi-fuel stove. There is an abundance of wildlife in the area, which makes it an excellent base for nature lovers - look out for golden eagles, red deer and pine martens as well as basking sharks and dolphins in the summer months. For the more energetic, there are marked circular walks up and over the surrounding hills and cliffs. For spellbinding scenery and unforgettable sunsets, it never fails to impress.

"Fantastic secluded location great walks from the doorstep, wonderful wildlife (otter on walk along the coast, sea eagles over the bay), cottage very clean comfortable and well equipped fabulous view by day and clear starry nights and aurora borealis! Dogs loved it and large enclosed garden ideal for them. Ardnamurchan is somewhere we return again and again and this is one of the best locations.
"The house is in a superb spot, the views blew us away. It is a comfortable and well equipped holiday home. Portuairk and the surrounding hills and bays are incredibly peaceful. We would have no hesitation in recommending you have a holiday here. , "
"The house is very clean, warm and comfortable. Everything you could need has been thoughtfully provided and kitchen well equipped. The views are fantastic so even if the weather is bad you don't mind staying in. The beauty of the place is that it is very isolated. It can take almost 2 hours to drive from Corran ferry to the house. The nearest general store is in Kilchoan, so you need to be prepared with groceries. The hotel does serve meals but we didn't eat out this time. It is a long drive to go anywhere so, apart from visiting castle Tioram and doing the Silver walk, we enjoyed walks in the area of the house. Be aware that many walks are difficult and boggy, and you need the right equipment and waterproof boots. An ordinance map (390) is also helpful. We stayed with adult children, but the beach and rocks in front of the house looked nice for young children to play and paddle. We loved our stay and will definitely return! Comfortable home with lovely view, "
"The location of the house is breathtaking, with ever-changing views north over the islands, and Eilean Feior offers endless fun for a family like ours. Thank you to Alistair and Janet MacColl for being on-hand and lovely. We loved staying in this cosy, comfortable house and appreciated the clean windows! Gorgeous Family Holiday with a FANTASTIC View, "
"Yet another relaxing week in this comfortable and well maintained cottage. The coal fire is very warm and welcoming. As usual, the views are stunning. Free internet access is a real bonus. The area is quiet and out of the way, far from the bustle of normal life. Relaxed location, "
"We had an amazing two weeks at Eilean Feoir - even the weather was excellent! The property is spotlessly clean, very comfortable and extremely well equipped. Alistair and Janet were very friendly and helpful and the booking via Steadings went very smoothly. We have already booked our next visit. Thank you. Portuairk Paradise, "
