Halftown Cottages by St. Catherines
Halftown Cottages are the remaining two cottages of a medieval crofting village.They were extensively modernised and extended in 1995 and now offer the very highest standards. These secluded cottages are set in 180 hectares (440 acres) of natural woodland, which has heritage status, comprising oak, birch, willow, hazel, beech and rowan trees.
Behind the cottages is “Tom Na Sgeulachd” (“hill of the fable”) which is covered in bluebells in the spring.
A small burn (hill stream) runs down to the loch below the cottages. The surrounding woodland has a variety of orchids including the great butterfly and fragrant orchid, an abundance of whorled caraway, mushrooms including chantarelles, a small waterfall, deer and a great variety of birds. Red squirrels are regular visitors, as this is a red squirrel conservation area.
These cottages are located on a woodland path 300 meters above the road and are woolly children and pet safe.
