A perfect spot for a relaxing holiday with opportunities to see marine life including whales, dolphins, porpoise, basking sharks and otters. Several coastal walks including one past the Lighthouse to the beautiful Camus Mhor bay with its cliffs and spectacular beaches.

The nearby Peterburn beach, with its stretches of golden sand and set in a beautiful rocky bay, is a must, as are the sand dunes and golden beaches, just a short drive away.

Easy access to Gairloch with further sandy beaches plus boat trips to see marine life and puffins, shops, hotels, restaurants, museum, pony trekking, golf course and Leisure centre.

Poolewe Village just a few miles further on from Gairloch has an indoor swimming pool and has weekly markets featuring local handmade crafts. The National Trust Inverewe Gardens are also located here.

The Beinn Eighe Nature Reserve and the mountains of Beinn Eighe, Slioch and Liathach are within easy driving distance, as is Loch Maree with its many islands and trips available to see the Viking Graves. Take the forest walks from the Scottish Natural Heritage base near to Kinlochewe, or for the more ambitious, the Lunar Landscape walk near Loch Maree provides excellent views.

Guest Comments

Location and facilities are excellent.
Mr T, Peterborough : 19th September, 2013

We had a lovely holiday, and found the cottage very comfortable. It's well-equipped to make life easy and relaxing. There are thoughtful touches that we appreciated - plenty of cutlery and crockery so that we could fill the dishwasher through the day, glass tops on the wooden surfaces to help keep everything looking smart. The position is delightful - within an hour of arrival we had the binoculars trained on a school of leaping dolphins out in The Minch.Altogether a very successful holiday :0)
Mrs G, Preston : 4th September, 2013

Very clean and comfortable. Fantastic views of the sea and very peaceful.
G S, Milton Keynes : 8th July, 2013

Situation, comfort and cleanliness are ALWAYS superb. The cottage is well equipped. We rate this as one of the best, if not the best, self catering we have stayed in over 40 years.

Mr J, Walkington : 3rd June, 2013

The cottage was well fitted out and really well insulated and cosy, especially during the bad weather spells.

Mr P, Burntisland : 8th May, 2013

Great sunsets - walked from the cottage to the Rubha Reidh lighthoues (about 3 miles). Superb beach at Mellon Udrigle - no need to go abroad. Went to the Poolewe market which is every Thursday - quite interesting with local art, etc. The Melvaig Inn is a great place to eat. The best views we have had on a west coast holidat yet.
D & A, Aberdeen-shire : 7th March, 2011
