Welcome to Sandholm
We offer free WIFI to all our holiday lets. Please note that we are in the Scottish Highlands and the connection to broadband is slow. Our house was built in the 1930’s the walls are brick and so we have two routers to provide wifi for both the cottages and the apartment.. Although we try to monitor the routers we are not always aware that they are connected. If you are relying on broadband/WIFI and are not receiving WIFI whilst enjoying staying in our holiday properties please let us know.
Sandholm’s self-catering holiday accommodation is located in an elevated position in the village of Morar with stunning views over Morar Bay to the islands of Rum and Eigg.
Sandholm’s two holiday cottages and the apartment are the perfect place to unwind. The beach is only a 10 minute walk away with acres of sands at low tide. The famous Silver Sands of Morar are only a 20 minute walk away or can be reached by car in 5 minutes.
You can enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this small village location whilst being able to access Mallaig, which is only 2.5 miles away and Arisaig, which is only 5 miles away. Mallaig has a choice of hotels, restaurants, bars and shops. Arisaig has a hotel, restaurant, 2 cafes and a shop. There is an authentic Thai takeaway in Morar village.
Mallaig was at one time the largest fishing port in Scotland and still has a busy harbour where you can see fishing boats unloading. Seals can often be seen basking in the sunshine. The ferry leaves from Mallaig to go over the sea to Skye and the Small Isles, whilst leisure cruises operate from Arisaig Marina to visit the islands of Rhum, Eigg and Muck.
