A gobsmacking location on the west coast's Ardnish peninsular.
The story of an abandoned place and its people
We said digital detox, and we meant digital detox.
"Ultra-remote seaside cottage"
"Lower Polnish is hidden on the private 3,500-acre Ardnish peninsula"
Anyone in search of an off-grid staycation need look no further....
"Laggan, a stone’s throw from the sea"
'"About as far away from it all as you can get."
"Fed up of humans but don't want to leave Britain? This delightfully solitary cabin off Scotland's west coast is only reachable by boat, only on a Saturday, only when the tides allow, and only between June and September (so leave quickly or wait until next year)."
"Look out for the extraordinary wildlife and take your swimming costume to bathe in the sparkling sea with the best view in the highlands."
"Around you, you’ve got the almost entirely deserted hinterland of the Ardnish peninsula. By some standards, all this makes it one of Britain’s most truly secluded spots in which to hire a cottage."
"If you have time, explore some of the peninsula’s stunning wild coastline. Look out for otters on the shore, and for seals and even dolphins out on the bay. If you stay overnight, the red deer descend from the hills during the hours of darkness to feed on the low ground, and seem to lose all fear of man. If you are camping here in autumn you can expect a restless night, surrounded as you are by the echoing roars of the stags just feet away from you. It just adds to the otherworldliness of this extraordinary place."
"As for the hinterland of Ardnish, it's pretty much yours to discover – almost entirely deserted, and populated mainly by deer, who roam a landscape of bare hills, forest, several lochs, and a fabulous coastline of pure white sand beaches..."
"In short, a visit here has to be well planned. If this sort of thing appeals to you, however, you can be sure that there are few other such places available for rent in Britain, and almost none that deliver quite so much peace, space and solitude."
"A fabulous walk on a fine day with stunning views of the hill loch, Loch Doir a Gherrrain and the coastal loch, Loch nan Uamh."
