Pronounced MacCloud by the Scots, the MacLeod clan is best known for promoting bagpipe music in Scotland. When the chieftain of Clan MacLeod returned from the Middle East, he brought along a piper of sorts to entertain his household at Dunvegan Castle on the Isle of Skye. And so began the history of bagpiping in Scotland. And so does the MacLeod cottage honor the piper as a symbol of the richest tradition of Scotland. In the mantle is carved an ancient lone piper paying silent tribute to the image of Culloden field hanging above. A picture of the castle appears over the fireplace and a poster near the door portrays the playful nature of some bagpipers.
The large living room window to the woods is a seasonally changing mural to the many faces of nature. And don’t forget the outside light under the window; the raccoons and deer love to dance in the spotlight! Enjoy the warmth of the massive stone fireplace in the sitting area and a small Franklin stove in the bedroom.
When you step out on the deck, you will find a private hot tub. Let your senses co-mingle with the warmth of an anticipated hot tub soak, the quiet sounds of nature and the fresh evening air. Step to the privacy wall and delight in your own secret garden with hammock and chairs, and listen to the gurgle of legendary Camusfearna Gorge deep in the woods of your personal estate
The cream colored walls frame a set of pipes and other memorabilia. There are even CD's of some of the world's best pipers-if you please.
