The renovated Jam Factory offers extremely comfortable self catering holiday accommodation for two. This natural stone property is situated privately with its own driveway and has separate parking. The interior is a warm and welcoming open plan room with a cosy wood burning stove.

Whilst providing the perfect Scottish holiday for people who enjoy wildlife and walks, the Jam Factory is set within 20 minutes walk from the village of Applecross, providing a delightful base to explore the scenic west coast of Scotland and all it has to offer. The Walled Garden restaurant which is a five minute walk is open from the beginning of April to the end of October. This secluded and romantic get away is ideal for a relaxing break.

    Jam Factory reviews
    The property is really secluded, well finished and well equipped - exactly as advertised. For that part of the world it’s just lacking a view. Thanks for having us.
    Miss Simpson - August 2019
    An amazing place to stay if you like peace and quiet, fresh air, mountains, forest and sea. The recently refurbished kitchen, furniture and decor is an improvement but the Jam Factory will always be a special place for us.
    Prof Waller - July 2019
    We had a great week at The Jam Factory, 28/6/19 to 6/7/19. Could have had better weather, but the accommodation was just right. The cottage is very well equipped with everything that we needed, except perhaps for a lighter weight duvet. The design seemed to have been properly planned, and the cottage had a cared for feel to it. We found it odd that all the clocks were wrong when we arrived, but we managed to put them all right, so the underfloor heating came on at appropriate times. Perhaps the main switch had been put off at some point?
    Mr Mcdowell - June 2019
    Excellent accommodation, very clean house with all the things you need. Great location just far enough away from the madding crowd. Applecross Inn was a great place to eat and drink and the menu was second to none. Great area to explore, good exciting roads in and out to drive and the Highland cattle make it a challenge. The beach’s looked amazing but due the time of year it wasn’t possible to sit on them.
    Mr Young - March 2019
    Facilities were top notch. Plenty walks around and about the estate. The cottage was so warm and cosy with a wood burning stove. Its also dog friendly. There is under floor heating in the hall and bathroom, So once you have been a lovely walk, your slippers are nice and cosy when you get back. Brilliant food and service at Applecross inn which we would recommend you have a bite to eat here. Such a peaceful holiday and plenty wild life to see on your walks too. Highly recommended this if you want a peaceful retreat. We have been twice and will definitely be back without a doubt.
    Miss Hawke - February 2019
    The Jam Factory provided a comfortable and peaceful retreat in a beautiful place. The only down sides were: lack of TV lack of frying pan lack of bath (shower only)
    Owners Response: "Thank you for your review but we do not advertise the house having a TV and sorry you missed the frying pans because there are 2 in the kitchen drawer. We are so pleased you enjoyed the peacefulness in a lovely place."
    Mr Clay - December 2018
    The cottage is a peaceful escape from the increasing madness of society today.This was our third late-December visit and it's becoming almost like returning home. The situation of the cottage itself and the idyllic surroundings, are unmatched. Forest walks, a raging river (does this tell you something about late December weather?), and a stunning bay with distant views to the isles of Skye and Raasay are just 'on your doorstep'. When we were there this last December there was a surprising amount of wildlife around from the amazing selection of feathered friends around the cottage feeders to the seals, otters, eagles, ever present deer (shy and difficult to approach according to a popular documentary series which was based around Applecross some years ago - don't you believe it!) - oh and passing minesweeper ships. We were privileged to be the first incomers following a major revamp of the main room in the cottage. A new three-piece suite, king size bed (with a lovely soft mattress), room decor and kitchen. A word about the latter - there are new state-of-the-art kitchen appliances; dishwasher (which we didn't use), oven with hob, and microwave. We found the hob tricky to use with it's touch controls & very sensitive safety cut-outs, and I found the microwave controls mystifying. As a last resort though, there are operating manuals if you have a spare hour or two. Of course all of the changes were much appreciated, I'm just showing my age here - it's a generational thing! To sum up, we had a wonderful time in a wonderful property and will return to this special place.
    Mr Dack - December 2018
    Very clean and comfortable in a lovely setting.Utter peace and quiet Excellent restaurant The Walled Garden a short walk away.Food delicious staff very friendly and helpful Applecross inn a specialised fish restaurant with a good atmosphere not to far away Found a couple of good beaches which the dogs loved and drove on to some of the surrounding villages Plenty of walks on to the hills with plenty of sightings of deer Had a wonderful holiday can’t wait to return
    Mrs Abbott - October 2018
    Loved the Jam Factory miss it already !! So peaceful quiet long walks and The Walled Garden so lovely .
    Mr Hopkins - July 2018
    We had a great break at the Jam factory would recommend to our friends and family.
    Mr Little - June 2018
    The Jam Factory was well equiped, comfortable and delightfully quiet.
    Mr Rogers - June 2018
    Cottage was a great retreat and we loved no tv or wi fi. Fantastic log burner and a glass what else could you need. Pet friendly, great walks and even the “ Walled Garden” restaurant which also was dog friendly. Scenic and Na Ba to cycle, Applecross Bay on your doorstep. Everyone friendly can’t recommend it enough.
    Mrs Taylor - March 2018
    Our second visit with hopefully many more to come. Beautiful little cottage with all the amenities you need and none that you don't, i.e no TV, internet or mobile phone signal, fabulous! Warm and comfortable, set in its own secluded grounds you can stay and relax / read when not exploring the amazing local area. We are out every night at the Applecross Inn. Outstanding food and just the most friendly and welcoming staff. Great opportunity to meet other travelers or just keep to yourself next to the open wood burning stove. Pet friendly for our little Westie, but doesn't smell of dogs and you'd never know any pet had ever been there before. Can't wait to return.
    Mr Lindsay - March 2018
    The jam factory was an amazing we cottage and perfect for the two of us and our dog, with an enclosed garden and plenty birds to watch while cooking breakfast. There was lots of walk around the area which ment no need to drive if you just fancied a walk. There was a walk a few miles away by car that was out on the coast where we saw plenty seals the actually followed us while we walked it was so nice. The cottage had everything we needed with plenty space. The kitchen was great with plenty space there too and everything we needed for the full week. There is a washing machine and tumble dryer if you feel The need to wash as you go. The wee stove was a perfect size and heated the house up very quickly so no need for the heaters to be on. The under floor heating was perfect in the hall. I put my slippers on the tiles and my dogs towel. So they were nice and warm after a cold and wet walk. It was so quiet and peaceful. The Applecross inn was so good too food was so nice. I will definitely return.
    Miss Hawke - February 2018
    Excellent facilities and wonderful location. Great walks for our dog and beautiful beaches close by. The journey over the pass is spectacular.
    Mrs Kershaw - October 2017
    Jam factory is in a great location for accessing the extensive applecross house estate and the excellent potting shed restaurant which is ideal for any meal anytime.
    Mr Pollock - September 2017
    We loved this cottage. It was very clean and well equipped with everything we could possibly need, including a great wood burning stove making for cosy evenings in. The surrounding area is great for walking with some amazing views and sunsets over the bay. The village is only a short walk from the cottage, where the Apple Cross Inn has a good choice of food and a pizza restaurant can also be found, but by far the best find of our stay was the Walled Garden café and restaurant, which is a 2 or 3 minute walk from the cottage. It is very handy for breakfast or an evening meal and the food was excellent and we would highly recommend paying it a visit. We had a very relaxing few days in the Apple Cross area, everyone we met was friendly and helpful and my only regret is that we didn't stay longer. We would without a doubt stay at the Jam Factory again and are already trying to work out when we can manage another visit.
    Miss Brindle - August 2017
    The Jam Factory, seemed perfect at first. Compact, but lovely and peaceful. I couldn't fault the cleanliness either. Sadly with the secluded and wooded garden meant no views and worse still millions of midges!!! We managed to eat outside once, but the rest of the week, we couldn't even open the windows as the midges came flooding in. This meant that the Jam Factory turned into a damp hell. Carpets, clothes, towels, bed all damp. Would I return? In the winter maybe, in the summer absolutely not!
    Mrs Hague - August 2017
    We had a fantastic holiday at the jam Factory. The cottage was lovely and cosy, with plenty of space for us and the dog considering it was very open plan. It had everything that we needed, although the sharp knives were not sharp( but they never are in a holiday cottage!) Applecross, is a beautiful area, with everything that we wanted there...lots of paths for walking and running for me and the dog, and great roads for the motorbike for my husband who travelled seperately! The walled garden was very pretty, and Peter a mine of information. The restaurant.......FANTASTIC! We had 3 breakfasts, one evening meal and one mid-morning coffee and cake, and they all were really good. The staff was friendly and very welcoming and as a coeliac, I had plenty of choice, including the all important cake. The Applecross Inn was also good for eating. and all the places that we found, we were able to take the dog into(on a lead) which was really handy Overall I would recommend the area and the Jam Factory for your holiday. The only thing that would have been useful would have been a wee list giving the times of shop opening and things like that, Luckily I had asked, in advance, the contact lady, whether we should bring all food.....yes. Thank you for a great holiday.
    Mrs Bosomworth - July 2017
    We spent a fantastic four days in Applecross, made all the better by the comfortable and cosy Jam Factory. The accommodation was in a great location for exploring Applecross and the surrounding areas. Highlights for us were the walled garden and restaurant which is a 5 minute walk from the cottage - we ate there twice and the food was outstanding on both occasions. The Applecross Inn is also very nice for a drink in the sunshine and lovely view across the water. We cycled the Bealach na ba which was challenging (lots of rain and strong winds) but ultimately enjoyable. We were very thankful for a hot shower back at the cottage. We will definitely visit again.
    Miss Chalmers - June 2017
    Cottage was immaculate on arrival and, to our surprise but delight, the coin-operated electricity meter fully loaded. We did experience three minor 'problems' during our stay; the toilet seat was wonky, the instructions provided for the fire were for the wrong log-burner and the washing machine was stuck on cold wash only. The gentleman who came to strim the grass in the garden early on in the week corrected the first problem, took away the wrong instructions for the fire and told us he would provide the correct leaflet (he hadn't done so by the time we left - but we managed to work out which lever did what and had two successful fires) and noted the fault with the washing machine, saying that the machine had been in place since 1995 and was due for replacement. Although not needed in quantity by us, the ample, free supply of fuel for the fire was appreciated and in colder months will be a boon for cottage residents. The location of the cottage within the Estate was perfect, giving ready access to excellent tracks within the immediate environment of Applecross House and beyond, and a mere 5 minute walk from the Walled Garden café/restaurant for evening meals. So, bar the above 'niggles', the cottage and Applecross lived up to expectations.
    Mr Reed - May 2017
    Beautiful little cottage in its own grounds in the heart of the Applecross Estate. Gorgeous scenery and lots of wildlife - woodpeckers, seals, deer and Highland Catle.
    Mrs Kershaw - March 2017
    We had a great short break in The Jam Factory, helped greatly by sunny days and the tremendous location. We enjoyed many walk with the best being to the coral beaches and following the extended archaeological trail. We also enjoyed using our mountain bikes- mainly on the quiet roads and tracks. the Applecross Inn was great for a couple of evening meals (good food and drink and very friendly) and the restaurant in the walled garden at Applecross House also looked good although we didn't have time to try it. Enjoyed reading "His Bloody Project" while there.
    Mr Inglis - February 2017
    The cottage is hidden away in the grounds of the local Manor House amidst trees and close to a rushing stream. There are lovely walks possible from the doorstep one of which, by the shore, leads to the Applecross Inn! The Walled Garden, however, is just a stagger away in the grounds, where superb food and refreshment can be found (except at Christmas when we were there!). We found the cottage had everything you would need for a cosy, warm, and private escape from the troubled world of today. A leaflet outlining local walks is provided in the cottage as well as a wealth of local detail in a visitor's folder (we loved the 'Archaeological Trail - 4.6 ml - which has the built-in exciting possibility of getting lost in the woods half-way round!). When we contacted the local caretaker prior to the visit about a slight uncertainty of our arrival time due to horizontal rain and 90mph winds en route, Mrs Summers was very friendly and helpful as was Mr Summers who we met at the end of the stay. I have been a visitor to the Applecross area for some fourteen years and this brief break in The Jam Factory was by far the nicest and most relaxing time of all. Don't tell anyone about this place, I want to keep it a secret!
    Mr Dack - December 2016
    A lovely little cottage, I liked that it was completely secluded and hidden away. When the fire was lit, it was very cosy, but the lighting is gloomy and more atmospheric than suitable for poring over maps and reading.
    Mrs Fisher - October 2016
    Cottage was ideal for what we were looking for. Lovely woodburning stove. Secluded. Lots of nice walks in the area. Potting Shed and Applecross Inn nearby. If you want to get away from the rat race for a bit this is the place to stay. The only things that could be improved are keeping the information book updated and I would advise you to keep the heating on low throughout the day as the property can be slightly damp.
    Mr Mcmurray - September 2016
    We had an enjoyable though short stay - using the cottage as a base for some walking. It's well looked after and thoughtfully supplied with all that's needed. Perhaps a standard lamp by the sofa might help to make reading more possible - all this new age lighting does not illuminate sufficiently for ageing eyes.
    Mr Charlton - September 2016
    The cottage was clean and tidy. It had more or less everything that was required. There were plenty of logs for the wood burner. The walks around the cottage were wonderful. Being an older person, my eyesight needs light in order to be able to read and I was obliged to remove the lamp shades during my stay in order to read my books. (I did put them back) Some of the information leaflets were well out of date. The shower was somewhat sensitive and feeble. For finding the cottage initially, I never did see the wooden sign proclaiming it was 'The Jam Factory' The Walled Garden was a good place to eat.
    Ms Macdonald - July 2016
    The Jam Factory has become a home-from-home for us over the last 20 years or so. It's secluded but not isolated (by north-west Highlands standards), in a stunningly beautiful part of the country with everything that you could need for a relaxing getaway. The Jam Factory itself is very comfortable and well-appointed and ideal for two people (and dog-friendly!), but don't expect mobile reception, TV and Wi-Fi, although Wi-Fi is available at the Walled Garden café/restaurant and you can get Vodafone (and maybe other) reception halfway up the hill towards Sand. This place is all about scenery, wildlife, walking, reading and getting right away from the stresses of modern life. Once you're over the Bealach and into Applecross, we guarantee you won't want to leave! Excellent food at the Walled Garden and the Applecross Inn, though the latter gets very busy in the season. Take midge repellent in the summer months - in common with the rest of the Highlands, midges are abundant and hungry! "Smidge" works as well as anything we've tried.
    Mr Summerfield - May 2016
    We really enjoyed our stay. The cottage is in a great location tucked away on the Applecross estate with a very private, secluded feel. However, while it does feel secluded, it is a short stroll to the Walled Garden restaurant and within comfortable walking distance of the Applecross Inn. There are beautiful walks in the area and the scenery is fantastic. The cottage itself is comfortably furnished and well equipped with everything you need for two people and in our case a wee westie dog! Fantastic wildlife, especially the birds - if you like birds bring some food for the feeders in the garden! No tv, no wifi, no mobile reception (although you can get online at the walled garden if you wish) - it was absolutely perfect for a true getaway! We could not have had a nicer stay and I am sure we will be back.
    Ms Langley - May 2016
    A very good location for two people who want to get a well from urban living. Loved the underfloor heating and the wood burning stove. We would return.
    Mr Wheeler - February 2016
    The Cottage was easy to find, after we spoke with the care taker Michael, who gave us clear direction and left a light on in the cottage, as we arrived in the dark. He visited us the day after we arrived, to make sure everything was fine, which was very much appreciated by us. The Cottage was very nicely fitted out with a very good bed, the kitchen well equipped and easy to use. The wood burning stove was easy to use and there is plenty of firewood. We bought some fire starters to help the process, but on the whole didn't have any problems. What we didn't know was that the electricity was to be paid with a pound coin operated electrical meter. This should be made clearer to potential guests, as the cottage is far from any shops or the Inn were money could be exchanged.
    Ms Stolk - February 2016
    The Jam Factory was so lovely, warm and cosy to stay in. Tucked away in the woods which was very peaceful and quiet but close enough in walking distance to the local walled Garden restaurant and award winning Inn where the food is exceptional at both places. Can't wait for our next adventure to Applecross and our stay at The Jam Factory. Definitely worth every penny, thank you
    Mrs Summerfield - October 2015
    Lovely cosy little cottage, well equipped kitchen, modern bathroom, comfortable living area. Heating was very efficient, beds comfortable. Ideal base for exploring the area, but nice to come back to in the evening too. Would recommend the Walled Garden cafe/restaurant for delicious food in a relaxed atmosphere. We also spent time at the beach and discovering the craft / food producers up the coast road to Shieldaig.
    Mrs Leith - August 2015
    Well presented, and well stocked with everything you need for a relaxing break in the woods. My only suggestion for improvement is that the wood for the burner needs seasoning properly. It was very damp and required a lot of air to keep burning. This resulted in burning more than necessary.
    Mr Wilkinson - March 2015
    Our sixth visit to the Jam Factory, we never tire of the variety of walks available from the front doorstep, woodland, hills, river and beach walks all equally beautiful and full of wildlife, majestic views and stunning scenery. The Bealach na ba (cattle pass) highest road in Britain offers most unusual access to Applecross and is not easily forgotten.The cottage is immaculate, snug and cosy and has everything you need for a perfect stay. We will return.
    Mr Weaver - March 2015
    Very beautiful scenery. Isolated location, but with excellent pub a 20 minute walk away. The local people are very friendly and helpful, particularly the pub landlady. A great retreat with no mobile phone signal, no broadband and no TV. (WiFi available at the pub!)
    Mr Cooper - February 2015
    Another relaxing holiday at the Jam Factory. Warm and comfortable in beautiful surroundings, away from the daily grind of life.
    Mr Flanagan - December 2014
    the house was well equipped, though it lacks written instruction for numerous plugs and equipment, notice of log store, use of fire etc. We inadvertently turned off fridge and underfloor heating due to no or worn labels. A welcome pack would have been nice. Having to pay for electricity is very mean. It cost about £4 for our week in August, so would hardly dig too deeply into the profit of renting house out for £400+ for the week. The kitchen lighting is also poor, couldn't see hob dials at all even with light on. The area was lovely, despite a lot of rain. Walled garden potting shed does a great breakfast and evening meal and Applecross Inn has great food too, everyone very friendly. We also went sea kyaking with local co. excellent value and very enjoyable, even if one of us did fall in. A day on Skye was disappointing and a very long drive. Plockton was charming. We drove from Glasgow and bought supplies with us but also stopped at Lochcarron spar, better stocked than Applecross shop.
    Ms Henry - August 2014
    Suited one couple and dog just fine.
    Mrs Loftus - May 2014
    Great location for walking Applecross estate and well beyond. Very well equipped considering size of the cottage. Cleaned and tidy with great log burning fire. Comfortable arm chairs and sofa just right for tea and cake in front of the fire after a long walk. The Potting Shed and Applecross Inn great places to eat. Local residents all very friendly and Fantastic views across to Skye.
    Mr Goble - May 2014
    Excellent property with all we could need for a perfect, quiet week. Local pub is brilliant and the Walled Garden is a lovely spot too. The beaches at Applecross and at Sand are great for all the family. The Jam Factory was again spotlessly clean for our arrival and we would like to send our thanks to whoever prepared it.
    Mrs Hazon - April 2014
    A return visit this time autumn and we were lucky with the weather. A perfect week,blue skies and sunsets, autumn colours and the rut in full swing with stags roaring around the hills. Excellent walking and cycling and the applecross inn for dinner most nights. The jam factory was cosy with the log fire and the heated floor in the porch and shower room kept our walking gear dry. It is well equipped with everything to make our holiday comfortable. Thank you.
    Mrs Cameron - October 2013
    This little hidden gem is an absolute slice of heaven, its nicely hidden away and yet within easy walking distance of the Applecross Inn, The Walled Garden restaurant and many wonderful river, beach and glen walks. We were on our honeymoon and despite it being early October temperatures were in the high teen and lower twenties all week. The cottage is intimate, very comfortable and cosy just what we were looking for. This was our first time at the Jam Factory despite staying in Applecross many times before but this is a hidden gem and would not hesitate to tell all about it. It's all on one level so for people not so mobile or are unsteady this is ideal, the shower room is quite spacious and the hole place is made very cosy with under floor heating in the main living area along with a wood burner, or if you didn't want to you could just use the electric heaters dotted around the cottage. At the Applecross Inn the menu's are on two big blackboards but one thing which is not is the "seafood platter" outstanding and well worth the expense. We had a wonderful time and will most certainly return.
    Mr Staff - September 2013
    We arrived armed with fire-lighters and matches thinking there was just a log-fire between us and a harsh Scottish autumn. In fact the cottage has electric heaters and underfloor heating. We used the log-fire of course, it was lovely, but there was no risk of feeling cold. The place was spotlessly clean and had all we wanted or needed. The cottage is in its own gated garden, very quiet, a sense of total seclusion although other services and people are not far away. The sea is not far if you use the short cut by the river which I would recommend over using the main drive. We had a very good week indeed, the locals are helpful and welcoming, there is plenty to do and see (we saw basking sharks for the first time). Thoroughly recommended.
    Mr Price - September 2013
    This was our second stay at the Jam Factory and was a joy to be back. No tv, no mobile reception and a twenty minute walk to Applecross Inn. Beautiful surroundings. Nature on your doorstep, Stags, Hinds at the front gate everyday, birds on the shore, dolphins at Sheildig and even a waterhole in the grounds. When we lit the log burner it was so relaxing, as was walking the dog morning and night through the trees and down to the beach. We will definitely be back, it so beautiful.
    Mr Flanagan - August 2013
    A fantastic place to enjoy a peaceful rest in beautiful surroundings. The cycling and walking in this location cannot be beaten! The Jam Factory has all you need to make the most of this wonderful place.
    Dr Waller - August 2013
    I've been to Applecross twice. I stayed at the campsite last time but found the Jam Factory this time. Such a great little find. Tucked away nicely at the back of the estate, it was the most relaxing, peaceful holiday I have ever had. Applecross Inn was fabulous as always, although they were starved of seafood which was a big let down. Not their fault as the local fishermen hadnt been out due to the weather - a symptom of a winter visit no doubt. Will definitely be staying here again in the future.

    Jam factory, as always, beautifully clean and well maintained. Perfect spot to get away from it all. Mr Summer was very friendly and helpful. NB. It was our third time in the Jam Factory and not our last.
    Mr Adam - September 2012
    Beautiful location, ideal cottage for two with a dog, great walks, wonderful wildlife (stags at the estate entrance), peaceful, Potting Shed great as was Applecross Inn for food. Will be going again
    Mr Flanagan - August 2012
    A wonderful little house on the Applecross estate, surrounded by trees and with its own fenced garden. Well equipped and comfortable for whatever the weather, the midges were bad so spring or autumn would be perfect. Within walking distance of the famous Applecross Inn. choice of places to eat out but all the facilities to eat in too. Lots of good walking around the peninsula, with some challenging cycling on the Bealach. Fabulous views to Skye and the outer Hebrides. We had a great week thank you. To improve! Summer weight duvet as we were far too warm!. Hair drier. Fly screen so windows could be opened without being infested.

    A wonderfully peaceful location with stunning scenery. A very cosy and comfortable little property. The nearby Applecross Inn has fantastic food and a great atmosphere.
    Mr Manson - June 2012
    Beautiful, well-appointed and maintained cottage. Lovely surroundings. Great pub and restaurant nearby. Limited grocery shopping possibilities. Several walking trails, sometimes difficult to locate trailhead. Spectacular drive and view along access road.
    Mr & Mrs Boyd - May 2012

    Mr Dickinson - March 2012

    Mr Weaver - March 2012
    Lovely cottage, recently redecorated, in super location with lots of potential walks and other things to do right outside the door.
    Dr Walker - March 2012
    No mobile reception no internet jsut a log burner and walking - just what was required.
    Mr Salt - December 2011
    We absolutely loved the cosy warmth of this little cottage set in the beautiful surroundings of the Applecross Estate. The cottage had everything we needed and the well-equipped kitchen allowed us to enjoy many delicious meals by the heat of the fire. The location was ideal with enough civilisation at hand like the Applecross Inn, but set among the wilds and isolation of the Applecross Peninsular to get away from it all. We didn't come across a soul on our walks but did enjoy a late-night chat with some deer on the way back from the pub.

    My husband and I had the best of time in Applecross. No phone and no telly, it is sometime what you need to really appreciate everything around you. We was very luckey with the weather a bit of warm sunshine( for that time of year Oct) a bit of wind and a bit of rain. The way in to Applecross through" the pass of the cattle" was spectatular, just a bit of mist at the very top, where we got out. You could hear the staggs roaring in the mist. Magic. The food in both the Inn and the Potting Shed was fantastic, with many local products. And the locals very welcoming and kind, they go out of there way to help you. We saw plenty of wildlife too, on the walks of which there are many. The walks can be as easy or as hard as you like, and there is water sports too, though we did stay on land. We had a fantastic time, we are still on a high. There are so much to see, we most certinly be back. A little jewall.

    Applecross Jam Factory Cottage This was our first time north of Fort William and what an experience, we unfortunately could only stay from the Sunday to Wednesday but wished we had a lot longer and will return. Upon arriving at the Cottage we found everything we needed for our stay as the cottage was fitted to a high standard as detailed in the brochure. The Applecross Estate and surrounding area was just beautiful and for such a small community we were surprised at the amount of choice for eating out, which was to such a quality we could not fault. The paths and walking areas around the estate were to a high standard, however we did comment that we only found them, detailed later on in the week and would off liked further information on arrival, but in saying that we should have investigated the Web site better which we now know shows all the walks in detail. The Estate and the staff we communicated with were a credit to the Trust and look forward to returning in 2013.

    Quiet and secluded location, very clean and tidy. Very good value for the money
    Mr Dickinson - August 2011
    Lovely cottage like others on the estate that we have stayed in. Warm and omfortable with a well equipped kitchen. The log burner was much appreciated as the weather was awful all week! One minor irritation - although there was ample drawer space there was nowhere to hang clothes other than a coat stand.
    Mrs Hazon - May 2011
    Cosy cottage, everything you need for a short stay. Armchairs could do with replacing as they are not very comfortable. Option of lighter bedding for hot weather would be welcome. Great surroundings with plenty of privacy. Fairly priced for what's on offer. Will return.
    Mrs Muirhead - April 2011
    The Jam Factory is a lovely little place to stay, perfect for two people and a dog. It is within easy walking distance of Applecross Inn but in a lovely secluded part of the Applcross Estate. The cottage itself is small, but not cramped and has everything you need. A well presented, clean and well thoughout cottage. We will definitely be returning!
    Miss Hay - April 2011
    We've just returned from our fourth visit to the Jam Factory at Applecross and the cottage and location seem to be more perfect every time. The Jam Factory is located in a beautiful woodland setting in a lovely part of the Scottish Highlands. It is totally surrounded by deer fencing which makes it ideal for visitors who take their dog and ours is currently exhausted! The Applecross area is great for deer, seal, otter, and bird spotting and the drive there over the single track Bealach na Ba mountain pass is stunning if a bit scary. All in all a great place to visit.
    Mrs Brewer - April 2011
    Lovely cottage, toasty warm with the wood burning stove, quiet, just beautiful. Would recommend it as a getaway place in the winter.
    Ms Baillie - March 2011
    We really enjoyed our stay in the Jam Factory and would love to come again. There were only a couple of problems which were minor - the wood for the log fire was damp, difficult to light and smoked a lot; we could not get the hot water in the bathroom to work because the pulley switch was broken. It would be nice to have a radio, so we will be sure to bring ours next time.
