Traditional 19th century crofter's cottage in the village of Inverasdale overlooking Loch Ewe, refurbished to provide modern self-catering convenience whilst retaining its rustic character. Set within 6 acres of partially wooded croft land with access to the loch shore and panoramic views over the mountains of the Great Wilderness, Beinn Eighe & Sutherland. Huge sandy beaches are 5 minutes away by car and close to the famous North Coast 500 touring route. Children & pets welcome.
Coille Bheag is a six-acre working croft situated in Inverasdale, on the shores of Loch Ewe in the wild and beautiful landscape of Wester Ross, perfectly placed for exploring the hills and mountains of the Great Wilderness or the Torridons as well as our wild land and beautiful beaches. We are within the Wester Ross National Scenic Area and the Unesco Biosphere, 4 miles from the village of Poolewe and the NC500 tourist route. We enjoy beautiful views across the loch towards the mountains, including An Teallach; Beinn Eighe and the mountains at Ullapool and in Sutherland, and have direct access to the loch shore. The Cottage is a traditional 19th century stone-built Highland croft house, set up for self-catering and sleeping up to six people in two double bedrooms (one of which is on ground floor) plus one single bedroom with extra pull-out bed. (We can lend you a travel cot for babies if you let us know in advance, but bring your own baby bedding!) Children and pets are welcome, but we're sorry, the Cottage is not suitable for guests in wheelchairs. It commands beautiful panoramic views over Loch Ewe and the mountains and there is no street lighting for miles, so if you're a stargazer you'll see wonderful dark starry skies on a clear night. If you're lucky you might even catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights! The cottage has its own garden area, a sun lounge, and ample parking. The living room has a compact Aga stove which burns coal or wood, set in the original old stone fireplace. We can supply you with fuel, which is included in the price you pay along with electricity. The room has satellite TV/radio and DVD/CD player as well as two small sofas and a coffee table. A range of books, DVDs & CDs is also available for you to enjoy. The bathroom is on the ground floor. The Cottage is great for a family holiday or a romantic getaway - and if you come for Christmas, we'll even throw in a real Christmas tree from our own managed wood.
This is a friendly traditional crofting village in a very rural environment. There's plenty of scope for outdoor activities - walking, swimming, cycling, climbing, fishing, wildlife watching or messing about in kayaks - but not much in terms of nightlife! We're very close to some wonderful beaches, some within walking distance, and we're conveniently placed for hillwalkers. There aren't many opportunities for formal dining, but there are plenty of pubs and cafes offering good food, some of which are open throughout the winter. There's a pub, shop, weekly market (not winter) and indoor heated swimming pool available in the local village of Poolewe (10 mins by car), and many more shops, pubs and takeaways in the larger village of Gairloch (20 minutes by car). Boat trips and day cruises are also available in Gairloch or the ferry port of Ullapool (90 minutes) or you can go kayaking on our loch with local company Ewe Canoe. If you're into history, there are two local museums nearby to visit - Gairloch Heritage Museum, and the Russian Arctic Convoy Museum in Aultbea. Keen gardeners can visit Poolewe's world-famous Inverewe Garden (10 minutes), there is a pony trekking centre at nearby Red Point, and golfers can enjoy "possibly the best wee golf course in Scotland" at Gairloch Golf Club by the beach.
  • We had such a good time on our weekend to the cottage. Such a calm space with lovely welcoming people and thoughtful touches to help us enjoy our stay. We were only sad we had to leave!

  • Alasdair is a very welcoming host. The cottage is a lovely old place with lots of character. Really cosy with the log burner. Loved the garden, we could walk down to the lock and explore the rockpools. Further up the road there is a beach you can visit. We had a little swim there too. And the views from the upstairs windows are amazing!!!

    Vanessa2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing cottage to explore one of the best bits of the world. Everything you need and more thoughtful touches!

    Tom2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • A perfectly formed original cottage in a trad, and slightly quirky, comfortable and cosy style. It's in the most amazing location for both quiet and active moods and enjoys ever changing light, colour and weather which affect the stunning views and landscape all around it. Alasdair and Clare were easygoing and helpful hosts. And their hens lay quality fresh eggs should you run out. Altogether a happy and memorable stay in a fantastic part of West Coast Scotland.

    Valeska2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely, quirky cottage with lots of character and incredible views. Helpful hosts and stunning beaches nearby which meant we enjoyed some fabulous winter walks! Struggled to find somewhere nearby for a "pub lunch" but imagine this wouldn't be such a problem in season. Great find!

    Jodie2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Quiet, comfy and well equipped, a great place to stay with stunning views.

    Martin2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent place for winter break, we will need to come back in the summer! Thanks for a great Christmas

    Catriona2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage was a pleasure to stay in, was very cosy, especially with the fire on and Alasdair and Kate were very accommodating (helped get our car out of a ditch, oops!). The views here are stunning and we spent a lot of time at the loch just staring out. Seeing all the stars was one of the best things I’ve ever seen and was definitely the highlight of my weekend. I’d definitely go back and recommend anyone looking for a relaxing time away to book this amazing place! Thanks again to you both.

    Modern lochside self-catering all electric eco-Lodge in the village of Inverasdale, architect-designed in Scandinavian style to provide modern convenience and beautiful panoramic views over Loch Ewe and the mountains of the Great Wilderness, Beinn Eighe and Sutherland. The Lodge is set within 6 acres of partially wooded croft land and has access to the loch shore. Huge sandy beaches are 5 minutes away by car and we're close to the famous North Coast 500 touring route. Children & pets welcome.

Our open-plan, all-electric eco-friendly Lodge is fully equipped for a perfect self-catering holiday, set within its own garden area with ample off-road car parking, and children and well-behaved pets are welcome. However, we're sorry, The Lodge is not suitable for guests in wheelchairs.

Upstairs on the mezzanine is a large loft-style double bedroom with king size bed. Some of the furniture within the house is antique or has been creatively upcycled to add individuality and character to the interior. The house sleeps up to 4 people, and there's a also an extra camp bed available if you want to bring a fifth person (we can lend you a travel cot for babies if you let us know in advance, but bring your own baby bedding!) Great for a family holiday or a romantic getaway - and if you come for Christmas, we'll even throw in a real Christmas tree from our own managed wood. Huge sandy beaches are within walking distance, or five minutes' drive by car. There is no street lighting for miles, so if you're a stargazer for much of the year you'll see wonderful dark starry skies on a clear night. If you're lucky you might even catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights! In midsummer, it's still twilight at midnight.

  • Fantastic and practical accommodation for a trip to the west coast. Very quiet and ideal for some nice walks.

  • Beautiful place in an absolutely spellbinding location. Alasdair couldn't be more helpful and our experience of the area was hugely enhanced by our stay here. Highly recommended.

    Rupert2020-02-29T00:00:00Z

    Kris2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a a wonderful stay. The place was spotless on arrival and I think the pictures of the inside do it a disservice. Much bigger and more open than I expected, fantastic space for the 4 of us! The location is beautiful too :)

    Jack2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had such an amazing month at the cabin. So much to see and do in the local area with our dog, the ability to work from the cabin and amazing hikes and trips further afield too. Highly recommend this for a restful, peaceful stay to fully relax in the Highlands.

    Emily2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • The perfect Highland retreat - outstanding lodge, beautiful scenery and warm hosts. Our only disappointment was not being able to book for the same time next year as someone beat us to it!

    This is a very peaceful place with great and uninterrupted sea views. It is a former Police House with a small conservatory at the front. The room is ensuite with a double bed and a saga bed. This room overlooks the sea. The house is close to the Aultbea Hotel and bar. A shop and Post Office are also nearby. A paved area with a bench also overlooks the sea. This property is NO SMOKING or Vaping throughout.
    The house has a spacious kitchen, dining room and a small conservatory. These spaces are open to be used if not abused. I try to make the house open and relaxing. I have no televisions or radios but I do have Wi-fi.
    The Highlands are a safe and interesting place to live. People tend to like their own company while valuing community. The area is of great scenic beauty and there are lots of hills to climb or explore. There are also varied unspoiled beaches. It is on the North Coast 500 Route
  • Very nice and clean place to stay high 5 stars

    Maureen2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • We very much enjoyed staying at Seaview (Richard’s place). It is located just above Laide with great views of the sea and especially the northern sky just in case the elusive aurora appear. It is modern, spacious, well-equipped and spotlessly clean. The beds are notably comfortable, as are the sofas in the sitting room. We felt warm and secure even though it was February and a freezing storm was blowing outside. Laide has a good local shop and a petrol station. Richard was a very responsive host, answering every question and even supplying Google pluscode and what3words code to pinpoint the house location. Kate and Neil, the local hosts, were very helpful and friendly. Highly recommended.

    Brendan2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Seaview is a lovely cosy and comfortable cottage. It is spacious with a perfect layout. We were very comfortable (the sofa is so comfy), it was warm and had everything we needed. Laide Village is quiet and the shop is small but very good. There are lovely beaches and a nice walk in the woods close by. Richard had left us some toys for our 1 year old which was thoughtful. If you are into mountain biking then this place is great as Richard has tracks marked on OS maps. We went with our surf ski and had fun in the sea, even in February! Note that the front door is stiff so give it a good push to get in.

    Kildonan is situated beside with sea with spectacular views across to surrounding mountain ranges. It is a very peaceful and relaxing destination, a place to recharge the batteries. Stunning beaches all around, safe and clean. A wide variety of wildlife sea and on land. Facilities nearby include, restaurants, cafes and tea shops, golf course, swimming pool and leisure facilities, museum. It is a fabulous location in the Highlands of Scotland.
  • This is a fabulous house and very well equipped. I’ve stayed in several Air BnB properties and this is by far the best. Spotlessly clean, well equipped, really good beds and a real home from home. Highly highly recommend.

    Jimmy2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely clean, well equipped and comfortable apartment with spectacular views.

    Neal2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place if you want somewhere quiet and comfortable, with interesting easy walks from the front door. There is an excellent kitchen, very comfy sitting room, good shower and bathroom and the beds were good too. It was all spotlessly clean. We had lovely walks along the road to the beaches at Mellon Udrigle and Gruinard Bay and the footpath to Slaggan Bay is full of interest, passing small lochs, highland cattle, ruined cottages and ending up at a lovely sandy beach. Beautiful Inverewe Gardens are nearby. Recommend the cafe at Aultbea, Oran-na-mara, which does not look very impressive when you drive up but had lovely food and an excellent view of Aultbea. It's an interesting area historically and has many relics from WW2 as Loch Ewe was a naval base then. The Gairloch Museum is very fancy and new with lots of interesting displays and well worth a visit if you are interested in the history of the area. The very well stocked post office and store is just a few minutes walk down the road and the prices are Co-op prices. It also sells petrol.

    Unique, peaceful, loch-side accommodation on working croft on Loch Ewe's western shore. A comfy double bed, with a single bunk bed above, in Juliette's cosy shepherd's hut. A shower-room, kitchenette, dining and lounge areas are in the Hub nearby. Electric vehicle charging point. Set in Wester Ross National Scenic Area and Unesco Biosphere, 4 miles (6.4 km) north of Poolewe and NC500 route. Uninterrupted views over loch to An Teallach; Sutherland mountains and Beinn Eighe.
    IMPORTANT: Please note that the top single bunk bed in Juliette's has a built-up side, so is suitable for children confident of climbing the sturdy ladder hooked to the side. THE CROFT We specialise in growing historical daffodil varieties, maintaining Plant Heritage's National Plant Collection of pre-1930 daffodils, so the croft is ablaze with white, gold and orange in April. Although we don't keep livestock, this is a three-and-a-half-acre working croft, and during the summer we're working flat-out lifting, cleaning and sorting out daffodil bulb orders for despatch. We have many commitments, so we're constantly chasing our tails, and we can't deny the croft looks messy -- especially after summer rain. Some of the land is peaty, rough grazing, but the inbye is bulb plots and grass and meadow flowers. The grass is kept long deliberately to encourage birds to feast on the seed (and to attract corncrake, which haven't found us yet), with paths mown through it. JULIETTE'S For your comfort, there is an electric panel heater in the hut and a choice of duvets of varying TOGs, plus fleecy throws and microwavable bedwarmers. There is bench seating and a table in the hut, and, for al fresco dining, a table fitted over part of the towing gear with cushions for the plat. THE HUB The lounge area of the Hub has a corner window seat, a comfy sofa, and a television with DVD slot and FreeSat box. A JVC radio plays tapes and CDs. The kitchenette has a coffee machine, toaster, kettle, induction hob, combination microwave and 'fridge, plus all the cooking utensils, crockery, cutlery and glasses you should need to rustle up a meal. Please ask if we've forgotten something. Teas, coffees, drinking chocolate, sugar and milk are provided. The dining area seats four comfortably. The Hub has convector heaters in both the main room and the shower-room. Toiletries, a hair dryer, feminine hygiene products and basic first aid items are provided -- please feel free to have a rake around in the cupboard beside the wash hand basin. Just ask if there's something else you need. An expanding heated clothes horse for wet clothes can be set up in the vestibule of the Hub.
    The croft is an ideal base for outdoor activities: walking, (energetic) cycling, birdwatching, botanising, kayaking, swimming (wild or tame), climbing and photography. Sandy Firemore beach lies a couple of miles north of us, just beyond Inverasdale Primary School, now a volunteer-led tea room, open for delicious homemade bakery on Wednesday and Friday afternoons. Further along the peninsula is the tiny, working harbour of Cove, and, at the end of the road, are dilapidated WWII gun emplacements and the Sasan, which commemorates the brave Royal Navy and merchant seamen who perished undertaking the "worst journey in the world" (Churchill). If you'd like to know more about the role Loch Ewe played in WWII, head along to the Russian Arctic Convoy Museum, beside the main road at Aultbea (10 miles/16 km away). To witness how this challenging environment has been tamed horticulturally, visit Inverewe Garden, a mile northeast of Poolewe, en route to Aultbea. During the summer, you can lunch at Aultbea village hall on a Thursday; visit the market at Poolewe village hall on a Tuesday, and dance to a ceilidh band there on Wednesday nights. On Friday evenings (5 to 7 p.m.), fish and chips are served from a caravan beside Poolewe camp-site. Poolewe Hotel serves evening meals in the bar and restaurant, and offers free WiFi. Bridge cafe in Poolewe is open until about 4 p.m. -- how about refuelling there after a swim in Poolewe's newly refurbished swimming pool? There are post offices and grocery stores in Poolewe, Aultbea and Laide -- the latter sells petrol and diesel too. Fishing and marine-wildlife-spotting trips operate out of Gairloch (10 miles/16 km to the southwest) and Badachro (beyond Gairloch). Gairloch has more facilities, including a bank A.T.M., public library, museum and 9-hole golf course. Booklets, leaflets and a fairly up-to-date copy of Yellow Pages, the local paper, will be left in the Hub, so you can keep abreast of what's available.
  • Duncan and Kate’s croft is in a stunning location on the western shore of Loch Ewe with views across the loch stretching from the mountains of Letterewe Forest all the way to Suilven in the north. The croft has access directly to the loch shore and it’s a fabulous location for bird and wildlife watching. During our stay, there were Great Northern Divers and wintering Slavonian Grebes on the loch and, if there hadn’t been so much else to do, I could have happily spent the entire time birdwatching from the croft. The sleeping accommodation is in a charming, cosy shepherd hut, with bathroom, kitchen and lounge facilities in a separate hut just a few yards away. Throughout our stay, we enjoyed flawless sunny days and brilliant clear night skies which, as it was the very end of October, meant that it was also very cold outside - there was snow on the mountains and a hard frost at night - but the hut and the hub were always warm and very comfortable. Everything we needed was provided, including breakfast food, beverages, snacks and even a welcome dram or two of whisky! There was also a well-stocked library of books in the hub, and both Duncan and Kate were happy to provide us with lots of helpful information about the area and local wildlife.

    Morag2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • Really lovely hosts in an incredible location. I wouldn't hesitate to visit again.

    Alex2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place, outstanding views, silence, nature. Kate and Duncan are very friendly and helpful. I hope I will come back once for longer than two days. I do recommend this place!!!

    Agata2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing place to stay. Loved the shepherds hut and the relaxation space of the hub was excellent

    Ian2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Duncan’s place was a dream. A place you would not normally stay but glad you did! Amazing views, welcoming family (Duncan, his wife and adorable dog), and a warm/cozy hut. It was a bit of a drive but well worth it. I recommend to any couple or person who want to make lasting and unique memories. Would stay again if we could on our trip! Thanks again!

    Rachel2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • The location is marked very well by their very sweet wind turbine, with the hut in the lovely garden overlooking the Loch. The area is beautiful, the dog is adorable, the beds were warm and comfy. Whisky included. Cheers!

    Ralph2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • This was an awesome place! Right on the water with an amazing view of the moon and milky way at night and sunrise in the morning. Duncan and Kate put a lot of thought into the setup and made sure I felt at home and knew how everything worked. There was even a piece of cake Kate made, which was delicious. They are very sweet and their dog is so cute too. I had a great time talking to them and wish I had more time there

    Ashcroft is our home, which is located in the traditional crofting Hamlet of Inverasdale. It is 5 miles east of Poolewe on Loch Ewe in the North West Highlands, an area of outstanding natural beauty. With beautiful beaches, sea loch, mountains and the Isle of Ewe. Loch Ewe is the WWII historic home of the Royal Navy and the Russian Arctic Convoys. Ashcroft, is situated at the end of a quiet lane 1/2 mile walk to the sea. Firemore beach, which is a lovely sandy beach is a 2 mile walk.
    Ashcroft is perfect for: Visiting Loch Ewe and the Russian Arctic Convoy Monument at Cove & Museum at Aultbea North Coast 500 Route Visiting Inverewe Gardens at Poolewe Cyclists & Bikers Walkers & Hikers (Ashcroft is located at the beginning of the OS route to the Rua Reidh lighthouse, an 8 mile hike) Kayaks, Canoes & sailing dinghies can be launched at Inverasdale slipway Rock climbing on the crags in the area Fly fishing on local Lochs (daily licence purchased at Poolewe Post Office) The two cosy double en-suite rooms at Ashcroft are situated on the ground floor of our house. The rooms are suitable for singles, a couple, 2 adults 2 children or 4 adults Bed linen, towels, duvet and pillows are provided and each room has a private bathroom One double room with shower One double room with bath Tea, fresh coffee, hot chocolate are provided in our kitchen Wifi is provided but is very slow as we are in the Highlands Ashcroft is located at the end of a small quiet lane with the odd tractor passing from the Croft (small farm) next door. We have a horse - Mr Magoo; a dog - Pippi Longstocking; ducks; chickens; cats - Tiger and Jess. Therefore animal lovers are welcome!
    Inverasdale is a small traditional crofting Hamlet on the edge of Loch Ewe. It is 4 miles from Poolewe & the A832 Route 500, along a single track road with passing places. You will find restful open space and a traditional way of life. Please note:- The Poolewe Post Office is the nearest shop and the Poolewe Hotel serves food until 8.30 pm booking a table advised, during the Summer months . There is a Chinese takeaway, restaurants and bars serving food, situated in the Village of Gairloch. You are very welcome to bring groceries and cook in our kitchen.
  • The house: Clean, modern bathroom and shower room with underfloor heating. Comfortable bed linen and pillows. Bedroom and bathrooms were spotlessly clean, warm, and with welcoming decor. Bedroom had a bed, lamp, heater, side table, coat hooks, leaflets for local attractions, and a hairdryer. If you’re an animal lover - they have an adorable and friendly dog, some chickens, and a horse. Parking is just outside the house. The host: Guy was very helpful with directing us when we got lost, providing lots of useful local tips and maps, and offering cups of tea on arrival. His daughter was home too and they both gave us a warm welcome. Location: Not far from Gairloch at all. Inverasdale is a good stop if driving the NC500 or taking a coastal walking holiday. The house is in a fairly remote area (like most of the Highlands!) with only a handful of homes on the same road so it’s quiet. If you’re wanting a quick walk to the shop/pub/beach this isn’t the place, but it’s perfect for peace & quiet, and views over the highland. We wouldn’t hesitate to return if ever near the area again.

  • Guy and his family a very welcoming. After a short drive to the house, we were offered a tea, sat down at their table and talked a lot. Guy and his wife both were very interesting and interested people who could give as further information for our roadtrip. We only needed one of the bedrooms - but both were really fine. They are seperated from the rest of the house with a toilet and a bathtub adjacent to one room and another toilet with a shower adjacent to the other one. Very clean, absolutely nothing to complain, we'd come back any time. Thanks for a wonderful evening, night and morning!

  • Staying at Guy's place was such a treat! His whole family is so friendly, hospitable and accommodating that we felt at home instantly! The room and private area is so comfortable and we were impressed by their DVD collection. They were so informative, letting us know what was in the area and what was worth checking out, and we quite enjoyed chatting with them about all sorts of things. We would highly recommend staying at Guy's charming home to anyone staying in the area!

    Brittany2019-09-28T00:00:00Z

    This is a truly peaceful setting. The vibrant Loch teems with life and you have spectacular views of the mountains. An Teallach is around 25miles away and Torridon is further to the south.
  • Zieda was a very welcoming host and provided us with an incredible breakfast. The room and bed were comfortable, and this kind of hospitality suited our road trip well!

    Bono2019-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • Zieda was a great host and made a beautiful breakfast porridge fresh fruit and home made bread etc. for breakfast just note you cannot use her kitchen or loungeroom .We did not understand that but Zieda helped us out it us just the way Airbnb has listed it. It does cause confusion but Zieda is trying to sort this out thanks again we enjoyed our stay

    Adélie2019-05-08T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed one night at Zieda's place as part of a motorbike road trip around Scotland. Parking was easy, and the location of her bungalow is amazing. Her back garden backs onto the loch, and is perfect to watch the sun set. There are also otters that come onto the slipway and can be seen from the garden. Zieda was very friendly and welcoming. She provided a continental breakfast with home made bread. The room was very nice and the bed was comfy. The only downside was that we had bought some food from the local shop to cook tea, but were not allowed to use the kitchen (we were led to believe that the kitchen amenities were available from the description). We would recommend Zieda's place.

    The Pentagon is a four bedroom, deceptively spacious, modern house situated in the small crofting community of Cove and enjoys stunning views over Loch Ewe. Comfortable and well-equipped throughout including a large kitchen/diner and a lounge with open fire and satellite TV. The sleeping accommodation of a double bedroom with en-suite shower room, large twin bedroom and two single bedrooms make it ideal for families. There is an enclosed garden and well-behaved dogs are welcome (max. 2).
    Situated beside Loch Ewe, visitors staying at the Pentagon are ideally placed to enjoy the tremendous varied landscape of Wester Ross and to pursue the wide variety of leisure activities it has to offer. It is situated near Poolewe, a few miles off the popular North Coast 500 (NC500) scenic route. Please Note - We are NOT on the Isle of Skye! Walking - Short or long, flat or hilly, beach or mountain, river or ridge – whatever type of walking you enjoy, you’ll find it within each reach. For the serious mountain walker, Torridon, Fisherfield Forest, An Teallach and the Fannichs are all only a short drive away. While for lesser mortals, there is an excellent variety of interesting paths and tracks to explore, many of which are also accessible by mountain bike. There is even a church in a cave on a beach within 150 yards of the Pentagon! Beaches - For beach lovers, Wester Ross has lots to offer. Just a mile down the road at Firemore, there is a large, superb sandy beach, which is safe and gently sloping. Another favourite nearby with many of Pentagon visitors is at Mellon Udrigle. There are many others locally to choose from including Gairloch, Red Point and Gruinard Bay. Wildlife - Few visitors will depart without seeing a seal staring at them from the sea. The lucky ones may see an otter or a stag or one of the many local birds of prey including white-tailed eagles. Whales and porpoises are also regularly sighted. And then there are the sheep….
  • We stayed here on the first night of our NC500 trip. The accommodation was excellent, clean, spacious and in a great location. We made use of the fireplace and were able to easily cook in a giant kitchen. I highly recommend it.

  • This was our overdue return to the West coast of Scotland which we had previously explored when our 2 kids were much younger . We had never visited this beautiful peninsula above Poolewe (and very near Gairloch) before and I am glad we did! The Pentagon (well named being on a plot with 5 sides I presume ) was a spacious house for the four of us over 4 days plus the dog ( a helpful gate prevented canine walkabout!) . We were blessed with 2 Mediterranean days of weather and by the third day my sunburn was appreciating a little cool drizzle. Nearby we chatted with a friendly farmer who confirmed that we probably had seen an otter and certainly a seal while taking an evening stroll overlooking the coves of the east facing headland. All the facilities at the Pentagon were good and I found a good holiday read in the well stocked book case ‘Into the Wild’ - which I thankfully finished before the end of our stay. Overall, a great stay - a great base to relax and visit nearby sights such as the amazing Inverewe gardens.

  • The cottage was great and perfect for what we where looking for. Would defiantly stay again.

  • The Pentagon is a lovely house in a great location. It was immaculately clean with all the amenities anyone could need. The coal fire was especially welcome! Andy was a great host, although we didn't need his help as everything is clearly laid out for a stay. Views from the house are amazing!

    Mark2019-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • Andy's house is lovely and has spectacular views over the sea loch, mountainous background and sheep-filled fields. Very peaceful and spotless house, highly recommended.

    This cosy 2-bedroom converted caravan sits beside our home in a quiet crofting community at Achgarve near Gairloch on the west coast of the Scottish Highlands. It overlooks beautiful mountains & is just 10 minutes walk from the sea (see "neighbourhood" details below). The accommodation consists of 2 bedrooms (1 double & 1 twin), shower room with toilet & wash basin, and a well-fitted kitchen/living area with TV/DVD, an L.P.G. cooker, fridge, microwave, kettle & toaster. Electric heaters.
    The Sheiling Holidays (comprising B&B, self catering and caravan) are situated 16 miles north of Gairloch and 44 miles from Ullapool. A wide range of meals is available in cafes and restaurants in the local area where you can sample fresh seafood and game. The village of Laide (2 miles away) has a licenced grocery shop. The caravan is ideal for relaxing holidays to "get away from it all". You may wish to use it as a base to discover the scenery and wildlife of Wester Ross. There are a variety of walking opportunities in the hills and on the sandy beaches. You can take a boat trip to spot whales, dolphins, seals and seabirds. There are also many Highland craft workshops to visit as part of the "Arts and Eats Trail", as well as museums at Gairloch and Ullapool. The famous Inverewe Garden draws many visitors with its sub-tropical plantations which flourish thanks to the Gulf Stream. On clear nights in spring and autumn, you may be lucky enough to see the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) thanks to our "dark skies". We are not far the route of the popular North Coast 500 (also known as Scotland's answer to Route 66) which is a 500 mile circuit around the northern Highlands.

    I can't think of a more beautiful place to be free. We spent days building dams, sandcastles, playing on the rocks and beach and fishing in the bay or off the rocks. Many days were spent exploring, sitting on the "Big Rock" behind the house reading books and day dreaming, going for walks, kayaking, riding our bikes or looking at the seal colony close by. I'm sure your family will love this place just as much as we do, it is truly a special place.
    Mellon Udrigle beach has often been voted one of the best beaches in the UK and is described as "Heaven on Earth" by Andrew Marr whose family have a cottage nearby.
