A fabulous one-level coastal retreat on the unspoilt Coigach peninsula ideal for families seeking a relaxing holiday walking, fishing and wildlife-spotting.

A true escape to nature, this charming coastal cottage is a must-visit location for those looking for a break from city life. In a hidden gem of the North West Highlands, this home is surrounded by water on three sides and boasts remarkable far-reaching views over the Summer Isles and towards the dramatic Torridon Mountains. Sleeping eight guests across four bedrooms, the home is perfectly set out for families with young kids, offering them the chance to explore local wildlife completely carefree.

This coastal home maintains a seaside style throughout, from its whitewashed exterior walls to the bright white floorboards welcoming you into the lounge. The home has a distinct homely feel, combining various patterned fabrics, cosy fur throws and bright colour schemes, such as the vibrant teal bathroom. Any empty stretches of wall have been adorned with fascinating art works, adding to the kooky feel of the home.

All on one level, this bungalow property puts everything you need at your fingertips. Enter first into the spacious lounge, which offers privacy from the kitchen and dining room through a partition wall. Comfy armchairs face towards a large viewing window with wonderful vistas, a perfect spot for watching for local wildlife. Relax in front of the TV/DVD with the charming pen fire flickering away before you. Fill the living space with music by plugging into the iPod dock and head to the kitchen, which is well-equipped to help you feed the family. Seasonally, prawn, crab and lobster can be ordered from local fishermen, meaning you can prepare wonderfully fresh seafood dishes from the comfort of your home. Sit down at the dining table to enjoy this local produce or wake up with a fresh coffee at the casual breakfast table. All four of the property’s bedrooms are on the ground floor, made up of two double and two twin rooms. Each of these bedrooms boasts an individual colour scheme and large widows offer loch and garden views that will be a treat to wake up to each morning.

Head to the rear of the property to enjoy the private enclosed garden with an outdoor play area for young kids. If the weather is on your side then be sure to plan a family BBQ for an evening on your stay, with garden furniture providing a place to dine alfresco and a fire-pit style BBQ for cooking up a feast. To the front of the property is parking space for three cars. The property has an extra garden cottage which is occasionally inhabited by the property’s owner.

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

There is plenty to do in the area, despite your wonderfully quiet location; if you and your group love the outdoors, this is the place for you. The Summer Isles, which is a group of around 20 islands, rocks and skerries, are ideal for walking and hiking. The closest, Isle Ristol (4 miles), has a long white sandy beach and you can walk there in lower tides. If fishing’s your thing, buy an angling permit and fish at the fresh water lochs around Achiltibuie which hold wild brown trout, sea trout, salmon and artic char. The self-guided Coigach Geotrail takes you on a series of geological excursions around the peninsula while you learn about the oldest rocks in Britain and evidence of a massive asteroid impact. Start from Reiff and make your way down to Achduart (10 miles) over the course of a morning.

Reiff cottage has the most brilliant location at the very end of the road, literally. It's less than 100 metres from the beach and also has a small sea loch at the back making it feel like you're surrounded by the sea. The house is laid out perfectly for a couple of families to enjoy with lots of comfy seating and eating options. The rooms are basiRead morec but comfortable and all that's needed for a relaxing getaway and the kitchen has all the equipment you could ever wish for. Hide

We had a fantastic trip to Reiff this May. The location is hard to beat - with great climbing, a beautiful beach and lots of great hills nearby, and the cottage is comfortable and very well equipped. A fantastic place to stay - we will definitely be back!

A spacious, light, airy, well equipped and maintained property, in a stunning location at the end of the road in Reiff, with superb views. The property was spotlessly clean, thanks to the housekeeper, Tarnia and the owner, Sara, was also available by email if needed.

The cottage was very well provided for and everyone felt very relaxed as soon as we arrived. The location gave a great sense of being away from it all and the stunning views of the seascape and mountains were particularly special. A thoroughly enjoyable 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.
