Bluebell Croft

Bluebell Croft
15 Anaheilt, Strontian, Highland, PH36 4JA

On the hillside beside Strontian, the village at the head of Loch Sunart at the gateway to Ardnamurchan, Chris and Chrissie Morgan run a croft that blends self-sufficiency, sustainability, good food and two luxury self-catering houses. Sleeping eight and four respectively (more children can be fitted in, and the two houses have an interlinking door), they're kitted out to VisitScotland's five-star level, including underfloor heating, an Aga and an outdoor hot-tub with glorious views up the glen. The heat and electricity comes from a wind turbine and a solid-fuel burner, while the hosts' enthusiasm for home-cooked and home-raised produce means that you'll find freshly baked scones on arrival, the option of a stew made from the croft's own beef, and opportunities to gather eggs, pick raspberries or gather salad leaves.
