About the local area

Port Henderson is a pretty crofting hamlet that straddles the sea shore. Water’s Edge is situated on a promontory on a small no through lane that leads down to the sea. All along the top road are small bays, sweeping sands and stunning scenery. Four miles further along the road finishes at Redpoint Bay, a renowned beauty spot that will appeal to beach lovers in particular. This wide sandy beach has incredible views across to the Isle of Skye and the Applecross Peninsular. There are superb walks all around the area, both sea and mountain, with the Torridon Mountain range in close proximity. Whilst quiet and unspoilt, there is a good restaurant and bar just 2 miles from the property. There is plenty to see and do in the surrounding area. For horse riding enthusiasts there is a thriving pony trekking centre just a short drive away. The charming west coast village of Gairloch is just 6 miles along the coast. It is also renowned for its beautiful sandy beaches, with awe inspiring Torridon Mountains acting as a dramatic back drop. Here and in the nearby village of Strath there is a good selection of shops, as well as excellent restaurants, bars and cafes. Warmed by the Gulf Stream this beautiful region of the Western 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. The immediate area offers a wealth of activities including a 9 hole golf course, cycling (bikes available for hire locally), canoeing and sailing, as well as walking and climbing in the spectacular Ben Eighe National Park. Fishing trips are available locally and there are also various wildlife excursions to suit all needs, including a special Giant Skate fishing trip, as well as a wonderful voyage out to the uninhabited Shaints islands (the only trip from mainland Scotland to these remote islands) to view the millions of nesting sea birds, spotting whales and dolphins on the way. With unspoilt sandy beaches and superb scenery, this is an ideal holiday location of all ages.
