A four-bedroom traditional cottage, set on the Applecross Estate, perfect for families and friends seeking a tranquil base from which to explore the Scottish Highlands and coastline.

Located in a beautiful estate on the tranquil Wester Ross peninsula, this comfortable and welcoming property offers traditional and cosy accommodation for eight guests. This beautiful cottage makes an ideal holiday home for a larger family or small group seeking a fantastic holiday base. The holiday lodge is part of Applecross House and can be rented by larger groups in tandem with the neighbouring property, Faoilinn. The estate offers stunning views of the Cuillin Mountains of Skye and the hills of Raasay. Highland cattle can be found grazing in fields around the lodge and wild deer can often be spotted nearby.

Stepping inside this light, spacious and airy lodge you will find tastefully decorated and attractively furnished living areas, and a choice of cosy, comfortable bedrooms. For guests who have also booked the neighbouring cottage, an interconnecting passage joins the two properties.

Decorated in cool, neutral tones, the inviting lounge is an ideal space to relax in at the end of a great day, with plenty of comfortable seating, a TV and a glass-fronted wood burner ideal for winter evenings. The bright and attractive dining room is a perfect space for sharing a special meal. You could also enjoy a snack or breakfast in the farmhouse-style kitchen/diner which features all the equipment you may need, including an oil-fired Rayburn and delightful country dining table. Two charming bedrooms can also be found on the ground floor: a single and a double, each with a delightful en-suite shower room. The ground floor also features a handy utility room and a WC.

Heading up to the first floor, there are two further bedrooms: a king-size bedroom and a triple room with three single beds. Please note these rooms do have quite low, sloping ceilings. There’s also a bathroom and an additional WC.

The lodge is set in the heart of the beautiful Applecross Estate, which extends for 260 square kilometres and features a wealth of beautiful woodlands, spectacular mountains, secluded beaches and stunning lochs. The popular Applecross Walled Garden and Restaurant (0.1 miles) nestles at the edge of Bealach na Ba, and offers a range of great food and drink. You can also head to the famous Applecross Inn (1 mile) which enjoys fabulous views over the Inner Sound of Raasay. With miles of wonderful walks to enjoy from the doorstep, this fantastic lodge makes an ideal base for keen walkers, cyclists and nature-lovers seeking a blissful retreat in gorgeous surroundings.

Lovely cottage in an amazing location. It had everything we needed. We rented it alongside Faoilinn which it connects to. It was ideal for our party of 9. There are beautiful walks straight from your front door. The Walled Garden is right next door where you can get coffee and a cake or a great dinner. The Applecross Inn, a short drive or a very plRead moreeasant walk away has really great food. There were highland cows and deer in the field right outside the cottage. We loved it! Hide

The cottage was spotless, really spacious and probably the best equipped kitchen with regard to any previous cottage we have stayed in. To have the local red deer grazing on the lawns was special for us townies. If you like walking and wildlife this is the place for you.

Appreciate the peace and tranquility, though in autumn the Deer rutting season starts so be prepared for noisy deer outside at night and close to the cottage. Dogs are restricted to the kitchen and utility areas, not an issue for us, and dogs loved the heat from the Aga.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
