A Highland Residence for Bonnie Prince Charlie

09/10/2020 A Highland Residence for Bonnie Prince Charlie

Step back in time at Borrodale House where Bonnie Prince Charlie first set foot on the mainland of Scotland.

Borrodale House

This handsome Highland house near Arisaig is steeped in history dating back to the Jacobites and set back from the shores of Loch nam Uamh with Borrodale beach just a short walk through the pastures.


Guests can enjoy wide open spaces (plenty of hiding places to keep everyone entertained), privacy and the freedom of a large well-maintained garden with a burn running alongside which flows down to the sea. The house comfortably sleeps sixteen people over three floors. There are eight bedrooms, four bathrooms, a separate WC downstairs, three reception rooms and a kitchen. The principle reception room has a cosy fire side area one end and a dining space the other end that can sit 16 people.


Very much a family house it works perfectly for big family gatherings and equally good for friends wanting to meet up and spend quality time together. Beautifully furnished throughout with all the equipment and facilities to keep all ages entertained from morning to night whatever the weather!


The surrounding area boasts a multitude of things to do and see from the white sandy beaches of Morar to skiing on Ben Nevis with everything in between including the steam railway, fantastic walking, fishing and boating.  Whether you want to visit for sunny days on the beach or a snowy Christmas by the fire, Borrodale is the perfect place to come and stay.


Just a short walk along a sweeping pasture to the shores of Loch nan Uamh in the Sound of Arisaig affords the visitor some of the finest west coast views, sweeping down from the Isle of Eigg to Ardnamurchan Point and beyond.


Visiting yachts can moor in Arisaig Marine which is a fully equipped boatyard where you can catch the MV Sheerwater for wildlife sightseeing or to visit the small isles.
