Why Burn Cottage and Broom Cottage?

The names of our cottages were chosen to reflect natural features of the site.

We have a small burn running along the North edge of our property which flows into Loch Shin. Burn is a Scottish word for a stream or small river. Scottish Gaelic has the word bùrn which means “fresh water”. The actual Gaelic for burn is “allt” which you will see used in a number of local placenames.

Broom cottage is named after the common broom or Scotch broom cytisus scoparius, a deciduous shrub. When we built the cottages in 1995, we planted a variety of broom bushes on the raised ground to the right of the drive, and these are now well established and come into flower during the summer. The most common colour for the flowers is yellow, but some of our varieties also flower in orange or red
