Property code: CA003

A three-bedroom waterside retreat perfect for families and friends seeking a tranquil base from which to explore the outdoor activities on offer in the Scottish Highlands.

Sleeping up to six guests, this cottage is situated on a secluded stretch of shore by Loch Broom with uninterrupted and panoramic views in all directions - you couldn't stay any closer to the water's edge. The piece de resistance is the large sunroom at the front of the house with 180-degree views, where you can spend hours relaxing whatever the weather.

 

The spacious holiday cottage provides comfortable and well-equipped accommodation, with views across Loch Broom to Beinn Dearg and beyond. There is a wood burner in the large sitting room, creating a pleasant warm atmosphere on colder evenings. Choose a book from the cottage collection or pop on a film for a quiet night in. The open-plan kitchen/dining room is a stylish and smart space that encourages sociable mealtimes, and the dishwasher will make the clean up easier. During the warmer months, there is outdoor furniture in the private garden where you can dine with an incredible backdrop. There are three delightful bedrooms, one double and two twins. There are also two bathrooms, one with a bath and the other a shower; both have a WC.

 

Wildlife is abundant with resident otters, seals and herons, as well as porpoises in warmer weather and it is possible to fish or canoe off the beach in front of the house. Walk up the hill behind the property for views out to Ullapool, the Summer Isles and the mountains beyond.

 

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

The house enjoys the best of both worlds in a peaceful place, yet with Ullapool only 10 miles away with its shops, swimming pools, restaurants and cafes. There are many craft shops and artists/pottery galleries locally, as well as weekly music sessions and, in the summer months, the local Ullapool Pipes and Drums display. Ullapool is also home to several superb festivals (Book Festival, Loopallu and Guitar Festival).

 

There is a large amount of land to explore around the house, including beautiful woodland - a brilliant spot for dog walking and children to create dens. It's an excellent base for families or couples to explore this area of Northern Scotland, with its white sandy beaches, Munros and hill walks, boating activities and fishing. Trout and salmon fishing can be arranged on the owner's stretch of the River Broom.

 

The magnificent Ben Wyvis provides a great place for climbing or walks, while beautiful Rogie Falls offers many walking trails to enjoy the spectacular scenery. Both are just 30 miles from the village.

This is a beautiful setting for those who want to relax in the splendour that is Scotland. No matter the weather the scenery shines through. Forest/hill walks nearby,& stunning beaches. Plentiful wildlife, wagtails fledging from nest in the boathouse, a mother seal swimming with her pup on her back, porpoises chasing fish with the tide and otters aRead moret dusk. Second visit and won't be our last house lovely. Each time, we have been visited by an otter coming off the shore and crossing the garden. Hide

This is a stunning location, such a beautiful part of the world. The bungalow is situated perfectly to enjoy the loch and see the porpoises/seals almost every day. The location is very rural, the little town of Ullapool is perfect with shops/pubs. The bungalow is cosy and comfortable, it was chilly for August, the heating a little erratic. Great toRead more have 2 bathrooms and an excellent kitchen, well equipped. Lots of seating and the sun room is a winner. The level of cleanliness was varied. Hide

The cottage was clean & comfortable - the sun room was just perfect for wildlife spotting & generally watching the world go by. The kitchen was well equipped, although had there been six of us a few more table mats & cereal bowls would have been needed, no problem for just three though.

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
