Situated on the edge of Loch Broom, this spacious property is perfect for families and groups of friends seeking a secluded base from which to explore the natural beauty and scenery of the North West Highlands.

Set right on the bonnie banks of Loch Broom with its own secluded beach and views towards the fishing town of Ullapool, this charming three-storey property has spectacular waterside charms in the North West Highlands of Scotland. Sleeping 12 guests across six bedrooms, the property is perfect for family gatherings and reunions, with ample space for everyone to spread out and relax in this wonderful living space. From here, you can discover the beauty and attractions of the Wester Ross region, right from your doorstep.

The ground floor sitting room is cosy with artwork, and picture-windows of the loch, and leads to the kitchen and dining area (with an open fire), where you’ll be pleased to find two fridges, two freezers and a wine fridge - the perfect arrangement for family celebrations! While the culinary experts rustle up delicious feasts, more leisurely guests can enjoy table tennis in the seated summer room which has a wood burner for dreich days. There’s also a convenient utility room and cloakroom with WC on the ground floor.

Step inside the property at the first floor where bright and airy traditional country-style interiors harmonise with contemporary touches and wall art to create a welcoming and homely ambience. Here you’ll find four of the cosy bedrooms (two are en-suite) decked in gorgeous linens with contemporary country-style tartan accessories, plus a family bathroom.

Two further en-suite bedrooms can be found on the second floor, also with a contemporary country-style feel and splashes of tartan clan designs. Parents will appreciate the children’s playroom which has a TV and space for the travel cot, or this can be set up in one of the bedrooms.  All of the bedrooms have waterside views, are beautifully styled and each has been thoughtfully named after a local Ben.

Outside, you’ll find open gardens to the front and rear of the property which is set right on the banks of the loch where guests can enjoy spectacular sunsets and views towards the hills beyond. Look out for land and marine wildlife too; this spectacular region is popular for its otters, seals, and porpoises which can be spotted from the comfort of your holiday home - you may also see rare birds of prey roam these skies, including the Golden Eagle. Private parking is available for guests, while shops, pubs and leisure amenities can be found in nearby Ullapool (1.5 miles), a town planned by the renowned Scottish engineer Thomas Telford.


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

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.
