Welcome to Grasspoint

Archie's Cottage

The former home of Archie McPhail is a classic self-contained highland cottage that sits on the shoreline, with spectacular views across to Ben Nevis and the mountains of Argyll. It still retains the charm of a bothy, with a living room/sleeping area, a small galley kitchen and bathroom. The cottage sleeps two.

Archie's Cottage weekly rates start from £710 to £925 (Christmas and New Year weeks £1,000).


This compact cottage for two is heated by a combination of night storage heaters and a new wood burning stove (starter pack of logs provided) and contains the following:

  • Bedroom/living area with a king sized bed, dining table and chairs, armchairs.
  • Galley kitchen with electric cooker, toaster, kettle, microwave and fridge/freezer.
  • Bathroom consisting of loo, basin and cast iron bath (with shower head).

Linen and Towels

Bed linen is provided, but please bring your own towels.


The cottage has no BT telephone line internet access. There is, however, satisfactory 4G mobile data available with Vodafone and EE. This can be strengthened if you wish to bring your own router or similar. Personally we recommend a digital detox, particularly at the cottage.


We are happy to host a maximum of 1 dog per booking, at an additional cost of £40. Please kindly keep the dog in their own bed in the porch, and do not let them on the bed. There is ample space in the porch.

We share the surounding land with highland cattle, red deer and sheep. Please be particularly mindful of your dog around the Highland cattle - they can be extremely protective of their calves and potentially dangerous.
