Description

Croft Cottage is pretty whitewashed traditional croft cottage perched on the hillside above the charming west coast village of Gairloch. With stunning views across the bay and the awe inspiring Torridon hills beyond, this charming stone cottage offers surprisingly spacious accommodation in a wonderful setting. Croft Cottage has been sympathetically modernised and upgraded over recent years, whilst retaining many of its attractive original features, including a welcoming open fireplace in the lounge. There is a second lounge just off the kitchen/ dining room which can also double as a formal dining area. Upstairs there are two pretty cottage bedrooms and a good sized family bathroom. All rooms enjoy spectacular sea views, with hills and mountains beyond. The cottage has its own private gardens, with patio area, picnic table and chairs and a separate lawn area accessed via a small gate which is completely self contained. The charming village of Gairloch is just a short walk from the cottage. This renowned west coast village, surrounded by beautiful sandy beaches, with the awe inspiring Torridon mountain range acting as a dramatic back drop, is an ideal location for holidaymakers.

About the local area

There is a good selection of shops in this small but vibrant village, as well as excellent restaurants, bars and cafes within walking distance.Warmed by the Gulf Stream this beautiful region of the Western Highlands is a unique area, where palm trees and rare plants flourish; the nearby sub tropical gardens at Inverewe bear testament to this and are well worth a visit.

The Leisure Centre has a broad selection of outdoor pursuits such as rock climbing, abseiling and kayaking. There is a 9 hole golf course adjoining a beautiful sandy beach within 5 minutes drive.

Cycling (bikes available for hire locally), canoeing and sailing, as well as walking and climbing in the spectacular Ben Eighe National Park in the heart of the Torridon mountain range are all enjoyed by visitors and locals alike. The area is a wild life enthusiast’s paradise. Sea eagles are common to the region and otters seals and superb array of birdlife can be seen in the area. There are a number of excellent sea and wildlife boat trips that can be booked from the harbour, as well as sea fishing trips and excursions.
