    Faoilinn reviews
    Our cottage accommodation was warm, clean, well-appointed, comfortable and spacious. We liked the kitchen Aga and the wood-burner too. We wanted somewhere remote and quiet, and that's what we got, and Applecross is a great place from which to do a bit of touring and walking, with plenty of low level walks through the woodlands immediately to hand. The Applecross Inn served excellent food, and we ate there 4 evenings out of 7, partly as we were holidaying out of season and most other eating places were closed, but mainly because the food at the Inn was so good. The only slight negative was the existence of a door which connected Faoillin Cottage to Bramble Cottage, and although locked, did detract from the feeling of total privacy. But an excellent, and well-managed holiday home in a lovely spot - thoroughly recommended.
    Mr Blair - November 2017
    Another lovely week in Faoilinn. We love sitting at the dining table. The beds are comfy and overall lovely holiday accommodation. Roll on next July.
    Mrs Sibbald - July 2017
    We've been going to Applecross for around 15 years and just love it! From the accommodation to the people, the scenery, the walks and of course the Inn, we will be back again next year.
    Ms Prager - December 2016
    We had a Fab Four nights stay at the Faoilinn. The house is immaculate, well placed for lovely walks, the beach and the Applecross Inn. We were blessed with sunny days and blame evenings (even though it was late August). Just loved the place and felt ta tally relaxed and de stressed after our stay.
    Mrs Garner - August 2016
    Applecross as lovely as ever, however we felt there was insufficient crockery, cutlery & glasses supplied with the cottage this year.
    Mr Carrington - August 2016
    Have stayed here several times and again had a lovely holiday in Applecross. Thanks also to Kate and Rory the house was spotless.
    Mrs Sibbald - July 2016
    Excellent as usual, no different to previous few years, I think there is a sky box now but we're on holiday so this stays off, just like the phone and other technology! Great cottage. Great location, great food, great people! What more could you want.
    Mr Wilkinson - July 2016
    Great location. Comfortable apartment. Applecross Inn so welcoming. Walking trails a good guide. Heritage center very informative. Super weather.
    Mrs Maxwell - June 2016
    My family really enjoyed staying in this very nice cottage in stunning surroundings & the pub a 20 min walk away & the walled garden tea rooms & restaurant a real asset It was a very successful happy time with the rest of us through the adjoining door in Bramble cottage. The cottage was very clean .Everyone on the estate was extremely kind & helpful
    Miss Stammers - May 2016
    We were only there for a week and for holiday offering peace and quiet in a home from home setting you couldn't wish for more. My wife and I have visited Applecross many times for several years and in that time we have made many friends and always receive a wonderful welcome when we return. During our stay we enjoyed in particular the food at the Walled Garden restaurant, certainly an experience not to be missed and well worth a visit. Also the Applecross Smokehouse is not quite what you'd expect but if you like smoked fish it's well worth the effort to pay a visit. Every time we return we are always amazed to see how the foot paths are developing and are largely easily navigable for disabled users. If you're looking for a good place to stay which offers a warm, quiet, dog friendly place with a wood burning fire to sit beside with a nice drink and book, you could do a lot worse than staying at Faoilinn.
    Mr Staff - May 2016
    Really appreciated the old fired range and the endless supply of logs for the log burner as the weather was a bit cold at the beginning of our stay. Bed was very comfortable and good quality bed linen. Towels in the bathroom were a bit on small side. We are not on the large side and they only just fitted! Would also suggest that you provide a spare bin bag for the kitchen as we were having to use our own supermarket bags by the end of the week. Apart from these small niggles we had a wonderful time and would highly recommend the Walled Garden restaurant on site. The food and service was excellent and the whole atmosphere was very relaxing.
    Mrs Wright - April 2016
    This is a very well presented, comfortable holiday cottage in a beautiful peaceful location. Very comfortable beds and well equipped throughout. It is on the Applecross estate right near the Walled Garden restaurant which serves superb local seafood among other tasty treats. A great location for walking, cycling and beaches. Highly recommended.
    Mrs Plaskitt - August 2015
    This was my 5th visit to Applecross and my 4th stay in one of the self-catering 'cottages' centered around/in Applecross House. That says it all really. Faoilinn itself is a comfy, roomy and well-appointed cottage - has everything one needs. As usual, the cottage was spotless: hats off to the caretaker! So why have I given only a four-star rating? Well, Applecross House is part of a busy Estate but, even so, for such a remote spot it seemed incredibly noisy this year - seemingly constant racket from passing cars, delivery vans, lawn-mowers, tractors, other farm vehicles etc. And, ah yes, my pet dislike - Faoilinn fronts a large, square, gravel and stone chippings car-parking area. This desperately needs, say, some hanging baskets of flowers and/or well-placed shrubs to lessen the austere bareness. Oh, and another thing, Faoilinn at the back verges on an unbroken expanse of grassland, shrubs, trees and the not so distant sea - the perfect place for an al-fresco meal on a sunny day! But what do we have here? - a couple of cheap, rickety plastic chairs! For goodness sake, Applecross Estate, give us a good solid bench and table here - please! Ah, but what the heck, ignore these petty quibbles - nothing can really mar the magic of Applecross - wild deer prancing by the kitchen window, nesting swallows in the eaves, owls hooting at night, the Potting Shed restaurant right next door with excellent food and wine and its beautiful walled garden, the friendly Applecross Inn only a leisurely twenty-minute stroll for excellent food and beer (always something happening here!), the many sandy beaches, the coral beaches, the enchanting views to Skye and the Coulinn mountains, the incredibly beautiful sunsets - oh, I could go on and on!! Hate to say this (would like the place to myself!) but you really must go to Applecross and see for yourself. You won't be disappointed!
    Mr Gillman - July 2015
    Lovely cottage in a lovely place. Applecross is a fantastic place for a family holiday. Food at Applecross Inn is excellent. Beach at Sand is well worth a visit, very sheltered and accessible even at high tide. We'll be back again next year for our fourth visit to Applecross.
    Owners Response: "We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in Faoillin and very much appreciate that you took the time to write such a nice review.  "
    Mr Wilkinson - July 2015
    The cottage made a beautiful go-to for exploring and experiencing all that surrounds. The weather proved typically Scottish, so the fire, aga, and all other comforts in Faoilinn were put to good use. Such a wonderful place to stay. Days went fast by running and cycling along the trails, buying local seafood and crafts. The Walled Garden is a total treasure. Do not forgot to get ice cream from Applecross Ices - simply THE BEST in the world!
    Ms Harvey-jamieson - June 2015
    We were exceptionally lucky with the weather during our week in Faoilinn and enjoyed the best weather in the whole of the UK. Cloudless skies, glistening seas and wonderful views from the cottage made this a fabulous choice for our family holiday. The Potting Shed cafe in the estate's walled gardens was fantastic for coffee, lunch or evening meals, as was the Applecross Inn. Shops, pubs and cafes all have cash back facilities which is a really good practice and much used. We found the best beaches, wonderful walking and running trails and it was all midge-free! (almost!)
    Mrs Capper - August 2014
    Property was comfy and cosy, especially appreciated since the weather was inclement. Bedrooms were immaculate but I was disappointed in the cleanliness of the kitchen - stainless steel sink stained, under microwave hadn't been wiped, plastic tub holding dish cloth and washing up liquid was dirty and light fittings were covered with dead midges. The glaze on some of the casserole dishes was cracked. The handles on some of the kitchen units were loose and the insides of some of the cupboards and drawers had seen better days. The utensil drawer would have benefited from having a potato peeler and a corkscrew. All in all kitchen was a bit tired and would benefit from a refurbishment. Thoroughly enjoyed the visiting wildlife ( red deer strolling past the window) and the beautiful beaches at Applecross, Sand and Ardban. Scenery was stunning, seafood wonderful and the Bealach na Ba road breathtaking.
    Owners Response: "We are glad that you enjoyed your holiday and that you found the house a nice place to stay but are sorry that you found aspects of the kitchen to be irritating. Most of the points mentioned would have been corrected by Estate staff whom were approached on another matter and whom, we hope, were found to be attentive and responsive. We do agree that some of the units need a refresh and we undertake to resolve this. The door knobs have already been tightened and we have replaced the corkscrew and potato peeler. We appreciate constructive feedback, thank you."
    Mrs Brown - August 2014
    Lovely clean house in beautiful grounds with short and long walks accessible from the front door, all with breathtaking views of Raasay and Skye. Great coast for seakayaking, spending the day on the beach and wildlife watching. Mountains with spectacular walking close by.
    Mr Craig - July 2014
    All round fantastic stay in beautiful area
    Mr Ewing - June 2014
    A lovely cottage in a beautiful location. Clean, fresh and well equipped. Perhaps some chairs and a table outside would be nice so as to enjoy the summer evenings but that's perhaps being a bit picky. All round an excellent cottage.
    Mr Wilkinson - June 2014
    Great place nd great value for money!
    Mr Howard - August 2013
    Great property....this was my second stay. I love the bay window looking out to the sea and Skye, and the Rayburn/aga which I used to do all my cooking. Only small snag was that this time I had a dog with me and there is no enclosed space to just let her out, but this is outweighed by the many and varied walks you can take a dog on from the property and which are great fun for a dog
    Ms Dean - June 2013
    The cottage was cozy, comfortable and well maintained. We had everything we needed for a great weekend away. It's location was fabulous, very peaceful and just a short walk away from the beach. Also nearby was the Potting Shed, we had a great lunch. A lovely drive to Sheildaig, where we enjoyed a drink in the sunshine on the roof terrace of the hotel, with fabulous views. A major highlight was the Applecross Inn, welcoming, good food and just a short walk away. Our 5 month old pup also had a great time, he needed plenty of sleep after bounding around the beach and walking to the pub and back. The only problem we had was not wanting to come home!
    Mrs Easton - May 2013
    Excellent well equipped cottage. Would benefit from a more sensible sized TV for nights in in bad weather, 32 min, and larger bath towels. Rayburn stove was super and perfect for scones!
    Mr Weld - December 2012
    Lovely accomodation in a peaceful and beautiful location. Wonderful walking around Torridon. Lovely walking starting right from the front door .Excellant for dog walkers. Good food at the Potting Shed at Applecross House, the Applecross Inn.Kishorn fish resteraunt, and Shieldag .Also bought wonderful smoke Salmon at Shielldag.
    Miss Williams - August 2012
    The accommodation at faolinn was just great. The drive to applecross across the Bealach an ba pass was exciting and different each time,depending on the weather.Much to do in applecross and the torridon area and it was always good to come back to a quiet secluded very clean and warm accommodation.the cottage was kept to a high standard and I would thoroughly recommend this cottage to anyone.
    Mr Thomson - August 2012
    This is a fantastic place to come and unwind. No mobile phone signal means you can really switchoff. The accommodation was great and what a location. We had great meals in the Potting Shed and The pub. We also had a sea kyak lesson. What a way to be in the scenary and see seals/porpoises close at hand. Great destination for all.
    Mrs Markham - July 2012
    Faoillin is a very comfortable cottage for 4. We found the cottage spacious both downstairs and upstairs. Beds were very comfortable. The bay window in the lounge was a bonus, with views across the parkland and also down to the coast. Great to see Red Deer Stags wandering around unperturbed by humans, especially early in the morning and in the evenings. A few minor points - we brought our own towels, which we needn't have done, because the website wasn't clear that towels were provided. We appreciated the coffee and tea pots - not always provided in other self-catering accommodation. There was no fish slice - we had to improvise. There were no pegs, so our washing had to dry indoors rather than on the drying green. We appreciated the payphone to keep in touch with folks at home, although we were bothered most evenings by recorded 'sales' calls for insurance or banking - any way that can be averted would be helpful. It would be great if we could have bought some venison (frozen this time of year) off the estate, to cook during the week or take home with us. We did enjoy a taste of the venison in the walled garden restaurant and bought some local seafood from there too. We went on lots of walks and cycling during our stay. Perfect weather all week and no midges. It was wonderful to walk around the estate paths or down to the sea in the evening.
    Mr Palmer - June 2012
    Directly outside Faoilinn (and the adjacent Bramble Lodge) is a large, dusty, gritty, stony unattractive square used for general parking. It would perhaps be a good idea to make some effort to 'prettify' this area; some hanging baskets and two or three well-placed shrubs would not go amiss! But, inside, Faoilinn is spacious, well appointed and comfy with excellent heating including a fireplace with an ample supply of wood - and it is so good to see deer only a few feet away wondering past the windows! And Applecross House itself is a large handsome building oozing character. Painted white, it contrasts beautifully against the surrounding green 'meadowy' fields and woodland. In effect, Applecross House has its own restaurant, the almost adjacent secluded 'Potting Shed' with its Walled Garden. The restaurant does excellent food but my favourite occupation on a sunny day is to just sit outside with a pot of tea or a glass of wine and admire the garden's lawns and stunningly, artfully arranged flowers. Feeling more energetic, there is always the very pleasant twenty-minute stroll to the nearby Applecross Inn, the friendly hub of gentle activity for the area. The food is renowned and there is an excellent variety of ales. I never tire of siting outside of an evening with a pint or two! There are always interesting and friendly people, both local and visitors, to chat to. The sunsets are invariably spectacular. The view over Applecross Bay to Raasay, Skye and the Cuilinns is truly beautiful, food for the starving soul! This was my fourth visit to Applecross. Need I say more?
    Mr Gillman - June 2012
    Lovely cottage with lovely bay window where you can watch the deer. Our group was particularly impressed by the wood burning stove
    Miss Goth - December 2011
    Excellent property with great facilities
    Mr Dickinson - August 2011
    Clean and pleasant, set in an excellent location.
    Mr Tait - August 2011
    So pleased to see that the property has been redororated, new carpets, bedding and crockery, as well a shower in the bathroom, thanks to Mike. The house and bedding were spotlessly clean, thanks to Kate.
    Mrs Sibbald - July 2011
    A great place for peace and relaxation away from people. You can still have good food eating out at the 'Potting Shed', just e few steps away and the Applecross Inn. Walks abound either close to the cottage along the river or further afield. Everyone in the area is very friendly and welcoming including at the Heritage Centre. The high cost of electricity is a little frightening especially on top of the rent. (We did not use the dishwasher or the washing machine because of this!!). However that would not stop us going back.
    Mr Payne - June 2011
    Everything was great in the house and the surrounding gardens.
    Mrs Jones - June 2011
