This bright, well-proportioned coastal cottage is a home for all seasons, with an open-fire for the winter months and an enclosed garden for when the weather is fine.

Sleeping six guests across three bedrooms, this charming house has space for everyone to relax in after a day exploring the Highland countryside, perfect for a small party of family or friends. For evenings out together, there is an inn only 0.5 miles away, by the shore of Loch Gairloch. The interior of the house is bright and homely, making the most of the stunning views with dual aspect windows in the living areas looking across to the mountains and down to the harbour.

When you return to the property, remove coats and shoes and put anything in need of a clean in the handy utility room. Prepare a hearty meal in the kitchen/diner, where the whole party can sit round the table and enjoy local produce. Throw a log on the lounge’s open fire and curl up on the sofas to watch a film. A spacious room for socialising, the lounge also has a second, smaller, table and chairs, ideal for planning the days ahead. Head upstairs to bed, where all three bedrooms are bright and elegantly decorated. One of the doubles has an en-suite shower, while the second double and the twin have the use of the bathroom, where you can unwind and soothe tired limbs in a hot bath after a day hitting the trails. Settle in for a good night’s sleep to wake refreshed and rested the next morning.

Outside the enclosed garden is made up of a large sloping lawn at the front of the house, while there is a decked area at the back. Dine alfresco when the evenings are warm, then sit out with a dram and simply enjoy each other’s company amidst the peace and privacy.

Torridon Sunrise is a fabulous house in a stunning location. The house was perfect for the five of us with all the mod cons and home comforts we needed. It was pretty much perfect to use as a base from which to explore the surrounding area and the Badachro Inn instantly became a favourite after our outdoor adventures. We'll definitely be back!

We had a great time. Stayed here 4 years in a row now. Perfect place to relax and for kids to have fun

For all the many years we have been holidaying in.Scotland, this has to be the best property and location we have stayed in. It was spotlessly clean when we arrived with a nice welcome message on the chalkboard in the utility room and an email from the owner. The property was very light, spacious and roomy with wonderful views from all aspects. TheRead more view from the kitchen sink window was the best as we could see the harbour from there and watched the spectacular sunrises and sunsets, that occured throughout the week. Everything we needed was there and it all worked as it was meant to. The heating was left on for us and it worked very well but as the weather was fine we did not need it for the rest the week. The beds were very comfortable and the wi fi worked perfectly! All in a a great proprty and location, add to that the fantastic weather we had all week and the very friendly local people. I have to say it was definitely our best holiday in Scotland we have ever had. Hide

This is a very nice house in a superb location. Spacious and very nicely appointed. It is surprising how many properties have insufficient toilet comestibles but there was a good supply. The house is very nicely decorated and clearly well looked after. I would certainly recommend this house. My only issue was the master en-suite bedroom and bathrooRead morem were very cold as the under floor heating didn't appear to be working properly. It was working fine in the other rooms so this needs to be looked at. Oh and a few microwaveable dishes for heating veg would be good but other than that I would be more than happy to book this house again. Hide

Torridon Sunrise is a very spacious and warm property with amazing views across the bay towards Gairloch. The new owner is in the process of making his mark on the property and has one or two improvements planned. The beds were comfortable and cutlery, plates, bowls and mugs are new. Unfortunately we had one or two hiccups at the beginning of our sRead moretay but the owner was extremely responsive on the phone.There is much to explore in the surrounding area. Don't miss the fantastic beaches at Redpoint, Gairloch, Firemore and Mellon Udrigle. Also well worth a visit are the NTS gardens at Inverewe, the new (opening June 2019) museum in Gairloch and the very interesting displays at the Arctic Convoy Museum in Autlbea. Hide

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.
