This fantastic beach house is set in an enviable location on the Applecross shoreline, offering a unique holiday destination with breathtaking views.

Escape to the Highlands for a taste of the simple life away from the hustle and bustle of the everyday. Sitting on the shore, wake up in this delightful home and let your senses run wild as you breathe in the fresh sea air, dip your toes in the water and listen to the gentle ebb and flow of the lapping tide. Boasting views across Applecross Bay, Skye and Raasay, you can while away the hours gazing over your surroundings and keeping your eyes peeled for a majestic sea eagle. Creature comforts and sociable spaces are plenty at this abode. Sleeping 12, invite friends, family and tufty-pawed guests to enjoy a spectacular Scottish break with you and make the most of time spent together as you snuggle up on cosy sofas and cook up a storm in the pretty kitchen.

Arrive in Applecross and enter this beautiful listed beach house. Pale tones create a warm yet tranquil environment in which you are invited to sink into the comfortable sofas, put your feet up and unwind. Switch on the TV or curl up with a book for a moment of peace before heading into the spacious kitchen to put the kettle on and rustle up a feast. Bring everyone together around the table and serve up a storm as you raise your glass to a holiday by the sea. Once you have savoured every mouthful, make quick work of tidying up and plan tomorrow’s adventure before resting tired heads. For any guests with mobility issues the ground floor is home to a king-size bedroom with en-suite so there is no need to climb the stairs to the first floor.

The first floor is home to three more king-size rooms where dreams can be had and you will wake feeling refreshed and rejuvenated after nights spent curled up in soft bedding. A family bathroom also resides on this floor where aching muscles fresh from adventure can enjoy a soak in the bath.

Head up another flight of stairs to the second floor for the two remaining twin bedrooms. These rooms have sloping ceilings due to the nature of the property so do take care.

Spend sunny mornings in the walled garden with a mug of hot coffee or enjoy a short walk to the shoreline for a refreshing early dip. There’s nothing quite like a plunge in the ocean to wake you up! When evenings are balmy and mild dine al fresco at the garden furniture and really make the most of your fantastic waterside location. There is ample parking.

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

Please note there is a refundable £350 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

For a more relaxing day, step outside and down to Applecross Bay. With a picnic packed up and your swimmers ready to go, dip in the fresh ocean before enjoying a homemade feast and settling down for the afternoon.

the Estate House is spectacularly located on the shore in the immediate vicinity of Applecross Village (and the excellent Applecross Inn). the views from the house across to Raasay and Skye are a delight; we enjoyed spectacular sunsets and good views of wildlife, including three apparently resident stags. The house itself is very roomy, warm, well Read moredecorated and very well equipped. the beds are very comfortable; the sitting room is cosy (not large). Hide

The house was clean and comfortable and right on the shore. We were greeted by Red Deer Staggs every morning at the back of the house . The Applecross Inn is 50 metres away and it gets very busy , so if you enjoy lively days then I would recommend this place . The Walled Garden which is about a mile away is a nice place for something to eat .

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.
