This is a place to spend lazy days absorbing the sheer beauty of the surroundings followed by nights round the fire with only the sounds of waves on the beach.
This Highland Holiday Cottage is special! It has spectacular views from all around the house, with the Sea in front and a Sea Loch behind, fed by a sea channel. The beach is just metres away so the house is surrounded by water on three sides. It is situated at the far end of the Coigach peninsula, near what is known as 'The Island' where there is walking, hiking, rock climbing, fishing and beaches just a short walk from the front door. No need to drive.
The cottage is light, airy, bright and modern with large viewing windows all within a stone's throw of a beach. It is decorated in the style of a beach house with white floorboards throughout, reindeer and sheepskin rugs and an open log fire in the sitting room. The view from the sea from the picture windows is breathtaking - a panoramic sea view with the Summer Isles framed by a range of mountains.
As the former family home of an artist, film maker, cook and environmentalist it has a warm, homely feel with original paintings sourced from all over the world and family furniture which makes for a charming 'homely chic' look full of character. With a well equipped kitchen for all your self catering needs. Every attempt at being environmentally conscious is made, particularly for the benefit of the marine environment upon which our community depends so we particularly welcome people who share our values. Please support our local creel and hand dive fishermen by purchasing sustainably caught scallops or fresh lanquostines, crab and lobster when in season.
The cottage sleeps 8 with 4 bedrooms, two double rooms and two twin rooms. It is surrounded by a loch-side garden for al fresco eating, and has one bathroom with bath and shower and a second shower room and lavatory. The kitchen is open plan with a kitchen table seating 8, and the view from the kitchen sink overlooks the loch. The front sitting room looks over the Minch, the Summer Isles and the Reef which has spectacular waves on a rough day. On a good day you can see the Outer Hebrides - Lewis, Harris, The Shiants and Skye.
Ideal for walkers, artists, rock climbers, bird-watchers and families wanting an 'away from it all' holiday in beautiful surroundings. Dolphins, Basking sharks and Otters are frequently seen in the summer months.
Kayak hire and trips are available from Norwestseakayking.
From the 1st of Jan 2017 we will no longer be accepting pets, although we will honour those who have booked already for the duration of 2017. From 2018 the house will be pet free. I am deeply sorry this has become necessary.
PLEASE NOTE: The dates for the Christmas and New Year week have some flexibility - so far there is a booking from the 28th Dec - 4th January so Christmas week is still available.
