The Wow Factor


Badan Mhugaidh – Two Cottages in a stunning location in Scotland

Badan Mhugaidh is delightfully located in a superb location by the Balgy River, in the shadows of Beinn Damph and looking across the loch directly to the Torridon mountains Beinn Alligin & Liathach. Fanstastic Highland mountain & loch scenery, wilderness and wildlife is all around. This is the perfect place to simply  get-away-from. The ideal retreat for families or couples

The Cottages at Badan Mhugaidh

(pron. Batan Vugey) are newly built in 2016 in the grounds of the Stalker’s House of the (former) Ben Damph Estate. There are two cottages to rent and they are separated (or joined) by a common boot room enabling them to be rented separately or together for up to 8 people, 4 in each cottage.

Open plan kitchen, dining and sitting areas overlooking Loch Torridon and across to the Torridon hills. The kitchens are equipped with double ovens, microwave ovens, induction hobs, dishwashers, fridge/freezers, wine coolers, Nespresso coffee machines and Dualit toasters. Wi-Fi is available, free of charge, throughout the property.

A superking (can be twinned) downstairs bedroom with en-suite bathroom featuring a double-ended bath and separate rainfall shower, and a twin room (can be superking) upstairs with en-suite rainfall shower.

The beds are huge, soft and super-comfy with duck feather and down mattress toppers and duvets, luxurious Egyptian cotton bed linen, and fluffy towels and bath robes.

Other features include a heated porch with boot/shoe storage in each cottage. There is a shared boot room with dog bed, washing machine, clothes pulley and plenty of hanging hooks. Iron and ironing board.

Bed linen and towels, electricity and logs are included.

Oak and Italian porcelain floors throughout with underfloor heating. Flat screen satellite SMART TVs. Wood burning stoves. Larch decking with furniture. Direct access to miles of lochside Estate walks.

See & Do

Photography – be inspired with these local shots from Steve Carter
