Follow the road for 15 miles down the glen, past tiny cottages and wandering sheep, around the loch and over the mountain, to a converted croft house at the end of the track, where a glass of prosecco greets you on arrival and Belgian hot chocolate is offered before bed.
The breakfast room runs along the front of the house with a string of windows that frame the view, and the restaurant is in the conservatory. While the wood-burner keeps things cosy, the small daily-changing menu is testimony to the chef’s exceptional food. Two bedrooms and two suites – simple and stylish – are divided between Coruisk House and The Steading next door.
Drop down to Elgol harbour, where Bonnie Prince Charlie fled for his life, and gaze upon the mighty Cuillin rising from the sea – you might also glimpse seals and puffins. You can roam the hills for miles to spot deer.
