Tigh Mo Mhiann, formerly the village blacksmith's cottage, is an authentic traditional cottage nestling in wooded Glen Spean at the edge of the village of Roybridge. It has been tastfully modernised, retaining the timber panelled walls and real fires. Outside, weather-permitting, you can enjoy sitting in the garden which comprises about a third of an acre with trees, a long driveway and a flat grass area. Folding wooden outdoor furniture is kept in the large porch.

Downstairs are a kitchen/dining room, spacious sitting room, bathroom and glazed porch. The bathroom and kitchen have varnished hardwood floors and were fully refitted in 2008/9. The kitchen/dining room has a heavy pine table to seat 6. The kitchen is equipped for serious cooking with dishwasher, double oven, ceramic hob, microwave, fridge, kettle and toaster and offers plenty of storage space. The bathroom has a bath and a separate shower cubicle.

Upstairs are the two bedrooms with Velux windows. The master bedroom has a double bed and the second bedroom has bunk beds plus a travel cot. The stairs in the cottage are narrow and steep and are unsuitable for those with reduced mobility. Small children should always be assisted on the stairs.

One of the sofas in the sitting room is a double sofa-bed to accommodate the 5th and 6th guests when needed.

Roybridge is an ideal base for exploring the West Highlands and Islands and is only 90 minutes by car from Inverness Airport.

The Small Print
A booking deposit of GBP100 is required. The deposit becomes a good housekeeping deposit which is returned to you, all being well, after departure.

Full payment is required 4 weeks before your stay.

The cottage is to be used only as holiday accommodation and can only accommodate those who are named on the booking form.

Smoking is absolutely forbidden in the house or in the garden.

The minimum stay is normally 3 nights (7 nights at New Year). Bookings can start and end on any day of the week.

The rental includes all linen, towels, electricity and solid fuel.

Heating is by a combination of electric storage, electric convectors and solid fuel fireboxes. The electric heating alone is quite adequate for most winter conditions, however most guests enjoy the atmosphere that only a real fire can generate. You may need to purchase firelighters and kindling.

Any of the following may lead to a deduction from the deposit:
Evidence of smoking in the house
Leaving the house unheated in winter
Disabling a water alarm or smoke alarm.
There is no retention of deposit for genuine minor accidental damage unless you fail to tell us about it
