Description

Stone Ewe Croft is a pretty whitewashed stone cottage situated on the owner’s 12-acre working croft, in the charming hamlet of Inverasdale, near Poolewe. With an open hillside to the back and lovely sea views from the pretty, stone-walled, country garden adorned with shrubs, it offers peace and tranquillity in a quiet and unspoilt setting. The kitchen/dining room has a welcoming wood burner. There is a cosy cottage living room on the ground floor and two attractive bedrooms on the first floor.

The owners farm the surrounding land and ponies graze in the adjoining fields. There are superb hill, loch and seaside walks direct from the cottage. The owners also own and run the Sealife Glass-Bottom boat trips from nearby Gairloch and operate wildlife cruises from the renowned sub-tropical garden at Inverewe, just 4 miles away.

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!
