On an extensive farming estate amidst glorious Highland scenery, this property offers an opportunity to enjoy the peace and quiet of a 'get away from it all' holiday. Wildlife abounds in the varied habitat - forests, moorland and hills - bird-watching and hill-walking can be enjoyed here and trout fishing may be arranged. Access to the hills may be restricted in certain areas in October. The property is on a working farm - the Highland cattle are a particular attraction!

GLENFERNATE HYDRO SCHEME


In 2012, Glenfernate went green.  We installed a hydro electric scheme to provide power for the farm and most of the houses, and it has been running ever since.


It takes water out of Loch Crannach and it pipes it down under pressure to a turbine house about a mile up the glen.  The resulting electricity travels along a high voltage cable to the farm.  Some of the power we use ourselves; the rest is put into the grid to be used by others.  Only Daldhu cottage is not on the scheme: it was just too far to reach.


The water pipe and the electricity cables are all buried.  The turbine house is faced with natural stone.  So we tried to make the whole scheme as environmentally friendly as possible – not like those wind farms springing up all over Scotland!


So when you cook on an electric stove at Glenfernate, or lie in a hot bath, it’s good to know that the energy all comes from the power of falling water, just a mile away.
















Daldhu

In a wonderfully remote situation amidst hills and moorland, this simple stone shepherd's cottage offers complete peace and seclusion. The single track road meanders 5 miles up the glen beyond the farm and goes on into the next glen. The cottage is simply furnished and quite basic - ideal for outdoor types who want a magnificent remote location.


There is no mains electricity but this year we have installed a larger automatic generator in an outhouse that supplies electricity for lighting, hot water etc. And also a limited amount of electric heaters. The generator is controlled from within the house. Shops 9 miles.


Upstairs - 1 Double room with additional single bed and 1 Twin room.

Downstairs - 1 Double room.

(cot available),  sitting/dining room with open fire, small kitchenette, walk-in larder with stone shelves, scullery, bathroom.


Coal is supplied for the open fire which also heats the water. Cooking is by calor gas cooker and there is a small calor gas fridge. Bed linen and towels are not supplied but can be hired by overseas visitors at £12.00 per person.
