Beautiful Highland Farmhouse
We have just returned from our stay in the beautiful Farmhouse at Bourblach. My family and I stayed there for 1 week to celebrate my 60th Birthday which was my wish as I spent all my growing up years holidaying on the hillside in our family holiday cottage by the shore below the farm and it turned out to be a dream come true with treasured memories of my childhood and making wonderful new memories with my loved ones. The location is so beautiful overlooking Morar Bay and a stones throw over the hill to the beautiful beach of white sands and blue sea looking out to the Isles of Eigg and Rum where we had the beach to ourselves apart from the gulls and the cuckoo who kept us company on the hillside. When the sun was out we walked to the beach, collected shells and paddled in the sea - perfect. We visited the famous Camusdarach beach from the film Local Hero, played golf, went fishing, enjoyed a picnic by Loch Morar, climbed hills, took a boat trip to Rum, visited Airsaig and ate out in the lovely pubs and restaurants in Mallaig enjoying the fresh fish and pottering round the pier looking at the fishing boats. When the weather turned bad we were so happy in the beautifully renovated farmhouse with all mod cons and very well equipped with kitchen equipment but still so full of character, cosy and warm with the AGA in the kitchen and lighting the real fire in the living room. On my birthday we had a bbq using the the stone built bbq in the garden and enjoyed the delicious Mallaig Prawns and Scallops and cant think of a more perfect location to do this with a piper on the hillside to make it even more haunting and magical. John has communicated brilliantly from booking a year ago right through to coming home and we have had some lovely wee chats about the area and mutual friends from the village. It is a long journey from Somerset but well worth it and it was a truly glorious stay so much so we have all promised to return to Bourblach as soon as we can.
Many thanks to John and we look forward to the next time

What a great house. Excellently kept by a landlord who cares about his property.
All you could need is there. Plenty of room for all.We were only 4 people and plenty of rooms to get lost in. Views are stunning from the front patio. Put up the garden table turn the bench to look out across to the Morar Sands. Don't forget the wine and glasses though as you can while away a few hours when the sun is shining.Stunning views.
Many places to visit in the area all made better knowing you were going back to a house the felt just like home. Recommend for a treat is the Terrace Restaurant at The West Highland Hotel in Mallaig. Book a table for around sunset (if your lucky to see the sun) and see the small islands as the sun goes down. Stunning.
How lovely to have guests who appreciate our lovely house as much as we do. The view across the sands is particularly appealing since the estuary is an ever changing canvass, as it fills and empties literally before your eyes. So glad our guests enjoyed it to the full.
Lovely property, fantastic location
We had a fantastic week. The property was great for our party of 6. Tidy, spacious and very welcoming. We would stay again. Just a short walk down to the beach to explore, our children loved it. Plenty of great places to eat locally.
Delighted you had such a great stay at Bourblach, and we would love to welcome you back at any time. Many thanks for such a positive and succinct review. Much appreciated.
Fantastic Highlands Retreat
The photos of Bourblach online don't do it justice. It is even more beautiful and more magical. It is a fantastic retreat, quite comfortable and cozy. The surrounding area, beaches, sheep, etc, were all breathtaking and added to the charm and delight of the property.
The house itself is extremely well situated and quite comfortable. Really felt like home.
We often just potted around the house and the local beaches or the nearby villages, but the house is close to Mallaig, where day trips to Skye and Knoydart are easy to take (and highly recommended). As a runner I appreciated the many options from the house.
John was very helpful and extremely easy to work with.
We arrived/departed by train and rented a car in Morar - very easy to arrange.
A week was not enough! Would love to go back!
A warm and cosy home in a stunning location
Our first glimpse of Bourblach was as we drove from Ft. William to Mallaig a few days before our rental began. We were astounded by the idyllic setting and were not disappointed when we arrived on Saturday to begin our two-week holiday.
The property felt like a home, not a rental. We found the surrounding beaches beautiful, secluded and rugged - perfect for exploring during low tide and scrambling over rocks during high.
The proximity to Mallaig made day trips to Skye and the Knoydart peninsula easy. Similarly, Arisaig and Camusdarach provided us with short outings for the morning or afternoon. Some days, we just stayed in and around the house.
You will not be disappointed with Bourblach. We will be back.
Another wonderful week
Bourblach is everything you could possibly want from a holiday cottage in Scotland. Well equipped and breathtakingly sited with views over the clear blue sea and soft white sand. Our party ranged from seven to 70 and all had a brilliant holiday. We dearly hope to return once more, thanks for letting us share this amazing place!
Activities abound when based at Bourblach. But one of the house's prime assets is its peace and tranquility, a haven of beauty and serenity set in stunning scenery. It’s the ideal place to unwind, spoil for choice between eating out in nearby Mallaig and cooking some of the fresh-off-the-boat seafood available in Mallaig.
Bourblach is perfect for a traditional beach holiday with young children - its beaches are rated amongst the cleanest in Europe. It’s great for walking sailing, fishing or golfing for all ages. There are spectacular walks including one along the banks of Loch Morar, the deepest stretch of fresh water in Europe, and reputed home of Nessie’s sister Morag. Walkers can cut across the narrow isthmus to Loch Nevis and catch the MV Shearwater back to Morar. The Sheerwater can also be used for day trips to Inverie on Knoydart, location of the Old Forge, officially the most remote pub in Britain.
