Attadale has three websites, this one for the estate, and one each for the gardens and holiday cottages. Click on the picture below to be taken that site.

Attadale Holiday Cottages

Attadale Holiday Cottages

Those who would like to explore the breathtaking North West Coast of Scotland might like to know that the Attadale Estate has four beautifully appointed holiday cottages, all designed by Nicky Macpherson.

A mile from the Estate entrance, these nestle among the hills and fields and often, in the evenings, deer come in to the gardens to graze. The Attadale Estate offers glorious walking (including two Munros) loch and river fishing.

Attadale Gardens

Attadale Gardens

Started by Baron Schroder in the late 19th century, hill paths meander through 20 acres of conifers and rhododendrons. 

Totally transformed after the 1980 storms by owner Nicky Macpherson, it is an artist’s garden designed to frame the magnificent views of Skye and the surrounding hills. Waterfalls, Monet bridges, meconopsis, bamboo and candelabra primula are reflected in dark pools. Sculpture lurks in unexpected places.

Attadale Estate

Attadale Estate

Attadale is a 30,000 acre estate in the North West of Scotland. It stretches from the south shore of Loch Carron to Loch Monar, 15 miles away to the east.

Attadale is ideally situated for touring the North West Highlands. We are just 3 miles off the North Coast 500 route and form a gateway for those tralleving up the west coast to join it.  To the North are Applecross, Loch Torridon, Loch Maree and the famous gardens of Inverewe. To the South is the magnificent scenery of Kintail with Eilean Donan Castle, Glenelg and, at Kyle of Lochalsh, the bridge over to Skye.
