Availability

Sealight

Our holiday property takes the name "Sealight" from one of the old Clyde built 'Puffers.' The Clyde puffer was essentially a type of small steamboat which provided a vital supply link around the west coast, including Loch Sunart, and Hebridean islands of Scotland, stumpy little cargo ships that have achieved almost mythical status thanks largely to the short stories Neil Munro wrote about the Vital Spark and her captain Para Handy.

Strontian

The village of Strontian (from the Gaelic 'Sron an t-Sithein' - 'point of the fairies') owes much of its history to the connection with mining. Between 1722 and 1904 lead, zinc and silver were extracted from mines near the village. However the main claim to fame occurred with the discovery of the element Strontium, named after the village, extracted from ore mined in the late 18th century. Strontium is used in the manufacture of diverse products such as fireworks, TV screens and medecines. Although closed for many years you can still walk via Ariundle Oakwoods and view the ruins of the old lead mines.

What a superb property. Stayed here at the beginning of Feb 2014 and had a fantastic time. Beautifully fitted with everything you could ask for - the log burner was great. Amazing views over the loch from the property as well. We had a good explore around the area and the Ardnamurchan Peninsula and I have to say that this is probably the nicest property in the area, the owners have done an excellent job. Great place and great area to get away from the stress of life - would highly recommend! ----- J F Feb 2014
