About Liz Cuthbert
I live in East Kilbride with my husband, Euan and 2 children, Adam and Emma. We have holidayed on the Ardurmuchan peninsula for years, loving the peacefulness of the area, beautiful beaches and scenic hill walks. Euan is a furniture maker, specialising in reclaimed Scottish Hard woods (Tailormadefurniture.co.uk). In the last 12 months Euan has been very busy adding to the cottage - with a new porch, outdoor drying shed, hand made beds , extra kitchen storage and display unit in hall. In 2019 we are very proud to open the upstairs area of Bramble, which has been a real labour of love for us to incorporate our design ideas, natural wooden touches and maximise the use of space to create a relaxing and tranquil environment. Euan is a keen walker and can be booked for guided walks in the area. I am in banking, so love to get away to Strontian as you can imagine! We love the area so much we got married in the local church in 2018! (So if you are planning a local wedding ask me for some tips!)
Liz Cuthbert purchased this bungalow in 2015
Why Liz Cuthbert chose Strontian
We bought this property as we recognised Strontian as being in the perfect location for a varied family holiday. We can get to the beaches of Sanna, the hills of Glencoe, the picturesque Island of Mull or Fort William in an hour, or we can take a walk through ancient oak lands or by Loch Sunart straight from the door. When we viewed the cottage it was obvious the previous owners had invested great love and attention in the cottage having only built it 5 years previously. It had a warmth and welcoming feel that felt like coming home. Previous visitors in the visitors book all spoke of their love for Bramble and their desire to return. The cottage has a shop, cafe and hotel within a few minutes walk and we liked the benefit of being "away from it all" but with convenience on the door step. All locals have been friendly and the small town has a real community feel that is missing in today's busier towns. We love getting off the Corran Ferry on the peninsula, feeling our modern day stresses melt away safe in the knowledge that in 20 minutes we will be Enjoying the peace and warmth of Bramble Cottage. The cottage is rarely empty - if we don’t have guests staying we will be there ( more often than not looking for more ways to improve it for the following year!). But every day starts with a walk to the shore to see the loch and reconnect with the peace and beauty of the area.

Bramble Cottage is set in an ideal situation. It is only metres away from all local amenities but has no passing traffic. It offers privacy with a fenced front garden and has enclosed, flat gardens to the rear - so perfect for children or pets. It is situated on the edge of a woodland offering fantastic walks. It is in the ideal location to enjoy a varied holiday, with majestic Glencoe, the scenic Island of Mull, the glorious sandy beaches of Sanna all within an hour, or fabulous walks from the door. The cottage has generously proportioned rooms and is wheel chair friendly ground floor. We aim to provide a home from home that you will want to return to again and again. We try to take the stress out by providing quality linens, towels, kitchen basics such as washing up liquid, a complimentary welcome pack with fresh milk in the fridge. We hope you will love Bramble as we do! Why choose Bramble? Its a unique and much loved property where we invest our heart and soul into making it as good as it can be. Euan is a Scottish cabinet maker and has really brought the house to life, giving it unique character with stylish use of Scottish hardwoods. Many of the furnishings are hand made to traditional methods by Euan. Liz has focussed on comfort and tranquility with quality soft furnishings in relaxing shades.
