This home is set on the Applecross Estate, owned by The Applecross Trust, that comprises some 26,000 hectares of stunningly beautiful mountains, beaches, woodlands, lochs and rivers, from Loch Torridon in the north to Loch Kishorn in the south. Guests have access to many walks from the door and as well as three excellent restaurants and a pub within a couple of miles.

Applecross is a peninsula with a fascinating Gaelic history and a brilliantly preserved heritage in the form of many archaeological and historical sites of interest. There is an abundance of trails and routes to choose from, including a short woodland trail between Sea Bridge and Home Bridge following the southern bank of the stunning River Crossan. Alternatively, the smooth-surfaced Beechwood Trail path passes the Holy Well and provides the best foot access to the bay and glen area from the south, and offers outstanding views westwards beyond an old stone fish trap to Raasay.

For an exciting adventure, pay a visit to the Mountain and Sea Guides based in Applecross, less than a mile from the property. They offer activities for everyone all year round, from sea kayaking, climbing, mountain walking, gorge walking in the summer to mountaineering and safety training in the winter.

This property is personally managed by Carol.

I rented Faoilinn and Bramble together for both me and my husbands families when we got married in Applecross this year. Even though the normal holiday let runs for a week (weekend to weekend) they were so accommodating and allowed us to rent it from Wednesday-Monday which allowed us to stay over the whole weekend which was just brilliant. Stair gaRead moretes and high chairs were provided for the children! Worked out really well and I will definitely come back and stay at Faoilinn/Bramble!

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.
