Surrounded by breathtaking scenery, this traditional farmhouse is the perfect base from which to explore all the west of Scotland has to offer with family and friends.

This welcoming farmhouse is set deep in a valley on a large hunting estate, surrounded by rugged beauty and secluded Scottish Highland glens. Sleeping eight guests across four bedrooms, it’s the perfect retreat for a group of walkers, or families who love to embrace nature with sporty challenges, wildlife treks, and adventurous days out. Right from the doorstep, you can enjoy sensational views of lochs, forests, moorland and mountains from every vantage.

Head up a long farm track and gravel driveway to reach your historic hideaway which has been recently refurbished to make your stay incredibly comfortable. Traditional features have been carefully treasured so you can all enjoy the original charms of the pine-clad sitting room with its welcoming and warming open fire. Contemporary updates, thoughtfully designed with guests in mind, include the bright and spacious bathrooms and kitchen area.

There’s a homely feel throughout the property which is well-equipped and has relaxed muted decor tones. Wooden furniture, soft textures and panelling add a cosy feel to the ground floor living space where guests can enjoy TV with Freeview, challenge each other with puzzle games, or catch up on a good book by one of the open fires in the main living room or the snug; there’s plenty of space for the group to gather together or to find their own wee neuk. The kitchen and dining room are open-plan and have everything you need to hand for mealtimes; and there’s also a convenient shower room, utility room, and single sofa bed on this floor. A travel cot is also available on request.

If you’re planning a long hike, then early nights and cosy beds are called for. You’ll find bright and airy bedrooms to keep your entire brood happy upstairs; choose from two king-size and two twin bedrooms, all with magical landscape views to inspire romantic dreams of Alba. There are also two bathrooms upstairs, both with bathtubs and WCs.

Outside the setting is simply breathtaking, with a picture-perfect mountain backdrop, bound to inspire wonderful days out and happy holiday memories. Enjoy the spacious enclosed grounds which feature a lawn which children and their four-legged friend can enjoy (pup pals are also welcome in the utility area of the house). The helpful owners can provide ideas for local walks and activities to keep the group entertained. There’s a private garden available for guests and walks right from the doorstep. In the evening you may spot deer, or on starry nights, the Milky Way or Aurora Borealis may light up the night sky in this rural area. It’s a short drive to the nearest shop (4.5 miles), and pub (5.5 miles), and private parking is available for guests.

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

It' also within easy reach of Loch Maree (14 miles), and the lovely sandy beaches around Gairloch (23 miles).

Those who appreciate wildlife and enjoy walking, fishing and country pursuits (available by arrangement with the estate), will never want to leave this vast estate where there are thousands of acres to ramble and explore. Take a group picnic and venture towards Achnashellach (6.5 miles) where you can enjoy a circular trail through pine woods with spectacular sea and loch views and enjoy lunch by the waters of Easan Dorcha Falls.

Or enjoy a rewarding day out shopping, walking and hiking in Torridon village (14 miles); set on the northernmost shores of upper Lough Torridon, the area is revered by walkers, photographers and dreamers for its majestic mountains, dramatic cliffs and spectacular gorges. Each adventure in this wonderful corner of Alba is rewarded on the scenic drive home to the warmth of the log fire in your cosy farmhouse retreat.

This is a wonderful holiday house. It is spacious, very comfortable and furnished and equipped to a very high standard, the beds and bedding like a good hotel. It is hard to think how the house could be better. We were specially grateful to Neil, who supplied us with delicious venison, more wood for the fire and advice about the area. The views froRead morem the house are superb as are the hill walking and more gentle walks around the loch. Hide

Great time there. Extremely clean and well looked after. fully equipped. two suggestions: 1- provision of a fire pit for having fire outside 2- A gazebo for the back garden, as its mostly raining so we can still enjoy the weather - couldn't be better if its fly/midgets proof/ netted.

We had a very happy week at Coulin Farmhouse with our grown up children. The house was perfect and had every thing we needed. The gravel driveway was slow but in good condition and no problem at all. We did a couple of great walks from the house and very successful day trips to Applecross and Diabaig. Excellent lunch spots in both places. Also did Read morea couple of extreme walks and bagged a couple Munros! Lots of good walk info at house and we also had fun doing a challenging puzzle. Hide

The house was the perfect place to stay. It's not only located in a beautiful spot but it also offers all amentities we could hope for. Communication with the caretaker went well and he gave us some useful tips. It's only a pity we only stayed for three days (or rather two) days. Definitely a place to visit again!

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.
