Description

Morlich is a spacious single storey, detached house situated in an elevated position in the charming and renowned west coast village of Gairloch. Accessed via a quiet lane and surrounded by its own gardens, it offers peace and seclusion in a lovely setting. The main living area is open plan, with large picture windows drinking in the amazing sea and mountain views, with Gairloch bay in the foreground and the Isle of Skye clearly visible in the distance. This delightful room is spacious, with plenty of comfortable seating for six, a large dining table and a well-equipped, bright, contemporary kitchen. There is a family bathroom with bath and shower and four good-sized bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom. The gardens are mainly lawned, with small sloping banks with shrubs and trees. There is a further area of garden which is enclosed within the grounds, accessed via a low flight of steps leading down to a wild country garden with small stone walls.
There are many wonderful walks direct from the house and plenty of facilities within 300 yards, including a selection of small shops, cafés, pub and restaurants. The immediate area is renowned for its beaches and stunning shoreline, such as the sweeping sandy bay of Big Sand, with miles of unspoilt beach and high sand dunes. There are also some interesting caves to explore close by. The area is famed for its wealth of wildlife; dolphins, seals, whales and a wide variety of sea-birds are all spotted in the region. Golf, fishing, pony trekking, cycling, canoeing, kayaking and sailing are all local pastimes. Fishing trips and sea exploration excursions are available from the pier in Gairloch. The nearby Torridon Hills are a walkers and climber’s paradise. Warmed by the Gulf Stream, this beautiful region of the west Highlands is a unique area, where palm trees and rare plants flourish; the sub-tropical gardens at Inverewe bear testament to this and are well worth a visit. With unspoilt sandy beaches and superb scenery, this is an ideal holiday base for families and all ages. Beach 500 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 300 yards.

About the local area

Discover a wonderful variety of contrasting landscapes that will make a lasting impression, from the remote rock-hewn wilderness of far north west Sutherland to the green rolling coastal lands by the Cromarty Firth. Wherever you travel you're surrounded by some of the most outstanding remote natural beauty in Scotland.

The Highlands is not only blessed with wonderful countryside, there are also miles of dramatic coastline, with quiet pristine sandy beaches, picturesque sea lochs and a scattering of pretty coastal villages close to clear turquoise waters. This is a place to really enjoy `The Great Outdoors', with plenty of activities from mountain climbing and white water rafting to gentle family walks and mountain biking for all abilities.

This part of the British Isles is also a great place to see wildlife; unsurprisingly wildlife flourishes in this great wilderness and there are plenty of opportunities to get out and about on land and sea - take one of the many boat trips on offer for close encounters with seals, whales and dolphins or simply get out into the glens, hills and forests to see eagles, deer and maybe even the elusive pine martin to name but a few.

For a holiday at a more leisurely pace visit the region's many historical sites, ancient castles, stately homes and fascinating museums, learn about the Highlands rich history and culture, its clans and conflicts, the tragedy of the Highland Clearances and its role in the Jacobite risings.

Summer visitors to the Highlands (mostly July and August) may not want to miss the annual Highland Games, which are held across the Highlands and are a unique spectacle of athletic, dancing and piping events which should not be missed!
