Overview

It stands just 50 yards from the sea at the end of a single-track road where it is completely secluded.

The cottage is set in its own private enclosed garden which has a small stream and access to a further five acres of wooded garden with many rare plants. Facing south, it has truly spectacular uninterrupted views across Loch Broom to the Dundonnell Mountains and west to the Summer Isles, as well as to craggy Ben Mor Coigach at its rear.

It is easy to see why it is such a popular cottage. Not only does it have its fabulous situation, but its interior too is full of character and charm. Recently renovated to a high standard, it is very comfortably furnished, pine-panelled and double-glazed throughout.

The stone flagged sitting/dining room with its exposed stone wall, wood-burning stove and beams is a welcoming place to relax and chat about the doings of the day. The spacious, colourful kitchen is both modern and practical, with all necessary appliances.

The downstairs double bedroom (with queen size bed) again has beams and an exposed whitewashed stone wall. Also on this level are the family bathroom with bath and shower over and a spacious sunroom from which to enjoy these truly marvellous views.

Upstairs the two twin bedrooms have a lovely cosy ambience, with coombed ceilings and warm wood panelling throughout and a shower room completes the accommodation. Outside is a grass and gravelled enclosed garden with seating for you to make the most of the stunning sea views.

Map & Local

This is an ideal location from which to explore the wonderful beaches, islands, cliffs, mountains, lochs and moorlands of this remote, beautiful part of Scotland.

It is also perfect for those just wanting to relax and unwind. Keep an eye out when you are out and about, as whales, seals, deer, golden eagles, ptarmigan and many seabirds can be seen nearby.

It is also worth taking a day trip across to Stornoway in The Outer Hebrides, using the local ferry service in Ullapool.

Restless souls who wish to thoroughly explore the area will find plenty to tempt them. One possibility is, on the way back to Ullapool, to turn left on the ‘wee mad road’ which runs over to Lochinver. The scenery here is absolutely amazing and you camera will never be out of your hand.

Take time to stop at Inverkirkaig and walk up to the Kirkaig Falls and perhaps on to the lochan at the foot of Suilven. To do this, you will park beside the scarcely less amazing bookshop and café, which is a welcome halt in this lonely place.

From Lochinver, if you are still not sated with magnificent scenery, you can take the further loop round the coast from Lochinver via Clachtoll and Drumbeg, finally returning by the main road (A894). This takes you past the ruined, rumoured to be haunted Ardvreck Castle on the shores of Loch Assynt near Inchnadamph. The romance of this landscape resounds even in the place names!

Please note: while we make every effort to be as accurate as possible, the actual position of the cottage indicated on the map above and the proximity of the amenities in the Local Info section cannot be guaranteed to be precise and should be used as a guide only.
