The Old Armoury is situated in a quiet no-through road right on the sea front in the charming west coast village of Gairloch. This substantial semi-detached stone house has an interesting history; once used as a store for the military during the First World War, it now provides accommodation for up to seven visitors in its spacious high-ceilinged rooms. The uninterrupted views across the bay, with the beach in the foreground and mountains beyond are exemplary.
The living room has a warm, welcoming open fireplace and from the main window there are amazing seascapes. Across the hall is a large dining room with the same magnificent views. The spacious kitchen is very well equipped with appliances such as a 4 slice toaster and a bread maker, and a further utility room is a useful addition. A wide staircase leads up to the four generously proportioned bedrooms. All except the single room have their own hand basin. There is a family sized bathroom, with a separate shower room on the ground floor, making this house an ideal choice for a two family holiday or for larger groups.
Situated close to the centre of Gairloch, it has all its amenities right on the doorstep, whilst being tucked away in a quiet lane. The sweeping sand and pebble beach is immediately opposite and there are lovely walks direct from the property. There is a good selection of restaurants, cafés, pubs and small shops within easy strolling distance.
Warmed by the Gulf Stream, with palm trees and rare plants flourishing, this beautiful area of the Western Highlands is unique. There are numerous sandy beaches close by; just 5 minutes away is the wonderful sandy bay of Big Sand, with high sand dunes and miles of white sand. The immediate area offers a wealth of activities, including golf, cycling, kayaking, sailing, hill-walking and climbing in the incredible Torridon hills and mountains. Fishing and sea life boat trips are available from the local pier. With unspoilt beaches, plenty of outdoor activities and quiet roads for exploring further afield, this is an ideal location for holiday makers of all ages. Beach 20 yards. Shop 600 yards, pub and restaurant 30 yards (summer) ¼ mile all year round.
