Description

Tulach Beag is one of two modern cottages set in their own garden grounds in one of the most beautiful parts of the Highlands, in the heart of Wester Ross. This spacious single storey cottage offers bright open plan accommodation, with three good sized bedrooms. Built to a high standard with solid wood doors and a large multi fuel stove in the main living area, Tulach Beag provides ideal holiday accommodation for up to six people. The combined living area has large picture windows that look out across unspoilt open countryside. Patio doors lead through to a delightful outdoor dining area and then to the main gardens. There are two double bedrooms, one en-suite, a bunk bedroom and a spacious family bathroom.
Situated in a quiet no-through lane that leads away into the hills, Tulach Beag is ideal for visitors who enjoy walking, cycling, fishing, canoeing, sailing or simply relaxing away from the crowds in one of the most scenic areas of the Highlands.
The surrounding area is a haven for wildlife and its a photographers and bird-watchers’ paradise. Otters, red deer, seals, pine martins and a wide variety of birds including red-throated divers and corncrakes are all seen in the region. There are some wonderful walks direct from the property and with the Torridon mountains, the Skye Cuillins, MacLeod’s Tables and the Five Sisters of Kintail mountain ranges all within easy reach, hillwalkers and climbers are spoilt for choice.
The picture postcard village of Plockton is just over a mile away. Made famous as the venue for the television series Hamish Macbeth, it is well worth a visit. With its picturesque flower-filled gardens, little winding streets and pretty cottages lining the foreshore its easy to see why it has also become a haunt for artists.

About the local area

Skye is one of the largest and best known Scottish islands and is particularly famous for its spectacular mountain scenery. It is also home to some dramatic history, diverse wildlife and rugged mountain beauty. The island of Skye makes for a great holiday destination with many visitor attractions, endless walking routes and fabulous restaurants.

Due to its popularity with tourists, you will find many craft shops and cottage museums. As for sports, you can visit the swimming pool in Portree, play golf at Sconser and Skeabost or go pony trekking. Watersports available on the island include diving, canoeing, windsurfing and yachting. Skye is also the ideal place for fishing and birdwatching.

Skye is easily accessible by either road or ferry. The road bridge is accessible from the Kyle of Lochalsh on mainland Scotland making it ideal for a day trip as well as a longer stay.

Lochalsh is truly highland territory full of clans and castles, hills of heather and views of lochs to the sea beyond. Visit the village of Plockton, a picture perfect location or Scotland's highest waterfall, The Five Sisters of Kintail. Where ever you go you are sure to be surrounded by some truly awesome scenery.

The Western Isles is a chain of islands also known as the Outer Hebrides. The main destination is the Isle of Lewis, a fairly flat island with many spectacular sandy beaches, a rugged coastline and a landscape that is worth investigating. Visitors will enjoy lots of activities including fishing, cycling, walking and bird watching. There are many other standing stones and archaeological monuments to visit too.

The rest of the western Isles can be explored using Lewis as a base. Most of the surrounding islands are covered in a blanket of peat meaning they are teaming with wildlife. Spot birds such as Kittiwakes, Guillemots, Kestrels, Hen Harriers and Redshank. With any luck you may even see otters, seals, eagles or dolphins off shore. In the summer months there are many colourful wild flowers to be seen and if you visit later in the season you can enjoy the heather in full bloom.
