About Anna & Norrie Maclaren
Artist and Gardener, Anna Raven and her husband Norrie Maclaren have lived at Ard daraich for over 15 years. Norrie took over the Hill Garden and Shrub Nursery in 1999 from his parents who bought Ard daraich in 1969. Once the holiday home of Constance Spry, The Maclarens, both father and sons, developed a garden that is now of special interest. On her arrival, Anna converted the potting shed into a self catering cottage within the garden making it an ideal retreat for garden lovers. The main house is now also self catering and Anna paints in her Studio whilst Norrie had a career in photography, film and television. The house is full of art and personal memorabilia and The Maclarens welcome everyone as friends. In the spirit of Highland hospitality!

Why Anna & Norrie Maclaren chose Fort William
Situated at the beginning of the Ardnamurchan penninsula, Ard Daraich is perfectly situated to get the best Lochaber can offer. Within easy reach of the popular attractions of Glen Coe and the Nevis Range we are a step away from the busy roads and tourist attractions. Ardnamurchan (of shipping forecast fame) is the most westerly point on the British mainland and has a quieter pace of life. With a Stevenson lighthouse, white sandy beaches, ruined castles and few people, you can find all the peace you need for solitude and tranquility. The Garden Studio is set within a plantsmans garden with an interesting collection of Rhododendrons and other ericasious plants with complete access to all our guests.
What makes this Cottage unique

Local pork sausages made to order and available from the freezer, you can eat "Local" Easy access to stunning Highland landscape at the door.
