About Us

In 1991 Mrs MacKenzie joined forces with two other holiday home owners in Lochcarron in what can loosely be termed as a co-operative arrangement. Other properties joined in and Lochcarron Holiday Properties became established and respected as a locally based holiday cottage management and letting co-operative. Mrs MacKenzie acted as the administrator for the group of properties over the next 24 years.  

In January 2016 Mrs MacKenzie retired from the co-operative and Lorna Shelbourn took it over. The aim is to continue to offer the best service to both guests and home owners.

The properties in the group are all individually owned as follows:

  • Moriston Cottage - Mrs Elizabeth Stanway and Mr V & Mr A Summers
  • Tigh an Eilean - Mr and Mrs Keith Jones
  • Harbour Cottage - Mrs Lyall and Mrs Wilson
  • MacKay's Cottage - Miss C MacKay
  • Samphire Lodge - Mrs Joan Stalker

The co-operative arrangement primarily allows the advertising net to be spread further for a reasonable budget, it also provides the visitors with some choice between the cottages and their locations depending upon individual tastes, needs and preferences.

While Lorna will arrange for the cleaning of the properties as required, the cleaners work for the property owners. Property owners in the area feel free to contact Lorna for more information on joining in this arrangement.

Lorna Shelbourn acts only as an administrator for the collective owners and customers make their booking contract with the individual owners. Lorna will collate all admin tasks relating to the property and report to the owners as a booking is generated, then collate end of month returns, which allows for a good flow of information and a simple set of paperwork for accounts. Owners have great flexibility over when, how and what weeks are made available for letting.

All enquiries and bookings are made through Lorna Shelbourn (Lochcarron Holiday Properties) info@lochcarroncottages.com, but it should be noted that all brochures, properties and facilities are under the control of the individual property owners. 

Lorna Shelbourn  is usually available to supply information and any assistance to visitors while they are in Lochcarron on holiday. She is familiar with the area and will endeavour to find out any information requested by the visitor. However, family commitments mean that Lorna cannot be in contact 24/7, but any messages left on her answering machine will be given attention as soon as possible. (Tel: 07717 625593).

Lorna Shelbourn  takes every care to ensure the accuracy of the property descriptions and all information is given in good faith and believed correct at the time of publication, but she cannot be held reponsible for changes beyond her control or be liable for any act, neglect or default on the part of the owner resulting in loss, injury or accident caused by the hirer.

Visitors are advised to read the full terms an conditions of hire on this web site prior to signing the booking form.
