Overview

Faire Chaolais, meaning "View of the Sound", is a modern, architect-designed, eco-friendly home in Morar in the west Highlands of Scotland, on the "Road to the Isles". The house, which was completed in 2014, boasts two double bedrooms, one room with bunk beds, one master bathroom and two en-suite shower rooms. Even in winter, the large living space on the upper floor with two large leather sofas, a dining area and a wood burning stove takes advantage of the most spectacular view. The house is built to minimise heat loss and has a heat recovery ventilation unit and underfloor heating and renewable energy from an air source heat pump; with a wood burning stove in the living area it is warm and cosy throughout the year.

What makes a stay at Faire Chaolais unique?

The house was created by award-winning architects Dualchas, who transformed the idea of the classic Highland agricultural building for contemporary living and turned it towards views of the "Silver Sands" and Isle of Rum across the entire gable end. Faire Chaolais is located on former croft land and enjoys passing of the 'Harry Potter' steam trains on the lovely West Highland railway line above the house. 

What is the capacity for Faire Chaolais?

With two double bedrooms, one bunk room, one master bathroom and two en suite shower rooms, the house can accommodate six people. 

What can guests enjoy when staying in the Mallaig area?

The town is a fascinating and relaxing place where visitors can soak up the atmosphere of a working fishing port. There are many walks to explore in the area: try the scenic Mallaig Circuit walk, which offers stunning views of Mallaig harbour and across Loch Nevis to the remote Knoydart peninsula. Mallaig is also a ferry port for the Isle of Skye and day trips are available, also to the Small Isles (Eigg, Rum, Muck and Canna) and Knoydart. Horseriding and sea kayaking are available.  Local museums include the Mallaig Heritage Centre, the Land, Sea and Islands Centre in Arisaig and the Clan Donald Centre in Armadale on Skye. 

Where can guests enjoy food and drink?

The area has a selection of local restuarants with an emphasis on local produce. Local suppliers benefit from regular catches of some of the best seafood in the world and wonderful seasonal produce. A local professional chef is available to deliver high quality meals to the house.

Other Information

The house has an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating Band B and is licensed by Highland Council as a short term let, certificate number HI-40025-F.

A perfect week’s holiday in this fabulous house. Amazing design inside and out, and its situation is stunning. We have been so lucky with the weather and captured a series of breathtaking sunsets. We will definitely return to refresh our memories

A very mild and quiet Christmas at Faire Chaolais, immersed in the great beauty of a magical landscape; timeless and majestic. A great place to sit in front of the fire and watch the wonders of the natural world.

GN

We had another lovely week at Faire Chaolais. We find the house magically symmetrical and soothing… The setting takes your breath away when you enter the house even when you have been before.

AS

Faire Chaolais is such a beautiful space to spend time in. We’ve loved the quality of the light, the view, watching the deer, running out to wave at the Jacobite, our daily walk on the beach.

DR

We can’t thank you enough for the wonderful week we have spent in this little bit of heaven. Our first family holiday since the pandemic and one we will treasure forever - thank you

JW
