The MacTavish Cottage

Legend has it that Ceymus MacTavish was the Laird of the original Glenlaurel estate – 300 years ago. The true history of the MacTavish clan is interwoven with stories, the facts have long since vanished. The Clan MacTavish Cottage embodies all the enchanted fairytale elements that have woven the ancient lore of Scotland.

The soft golden glow of the walls and warm honey tones of the furniture combine to let reality melt away, inviting the mind to drift off to thoughts of romance. Even the location of the MacTavish, at the far corner of the Hamlet, places it in the realm of faeries and the wee people.

Pass into the bedroom and feast your eyes on the luxuriously fanciful wrought iron King Bed. Venture onto your private deck and let your senses delight in the warmth of an anticipated hot tub soak, the quiet sounds of nature, and the fresh evening air. 

Enjoy the warmth of the two fireplaces; one large stone fireplace in your sitting area and a smaller Franklin stove in your bedroom.
