about us

Your hosts, Sue & David Holland welcome you to Conchra. Built circa 1760 as the seat of the local constable, it later became the ancestral home of the MacRae's of Eilean Donan Castle, who were loyal followers of the MacKenzies, Lairds of Kintail and Earls of Seaforth.


Conchra (meaning "the sheltered place" in Gaelic) is aptly named as it provides a welcoming haven for visitors enjoying the majestic beauty of the Kintail landscape. Nestling in the shadows of Beinn Conchra, it overlooks the ever-changing reflections in Loch Long, a place of beauty and romance.


In more recent years the amenities and comforts that one would expect of a fine country house have been discretely added. As a result Conchra makes the perfect base for discovering the dramatic scenery of the West Coast and one of the few places which truly provides the kind of hospitality others boast about. There is plenty of space for parking outside the house.


The accommodation comprises five cosy bedrooms - each enjoying en-suite facilities. The twin and double room on the second floor can double-up, if required, to make an excellent family suite, thus providing that extra degree of privacy. Downstairs, the spacious and tastefully appointed lounge provides the perfect environment for relaxation beside the crackling log fire.

Main Room

In the morning, the dining room which overlooks the loch will welcome you to another fascinating day, beckoning the intrepid explorer to the nearby Falls of Glomach and Five Sisters of Kintail just along the Glen. For others, there is a host of historic attractions to visit including Eilean Donan Castle and the Isle of Skye, only 20 minutes away by car.

Whatever you choose to do, you are sure to catch a glimpse of either a golden eagle, a red deer or an otter - or many of the other varieties of wildlife that inhabits the 2500 acre hill estate surrounding the house.
