Description

Westfield House is situated right on the shore line and commands stunning sea views from its large picture windows. Originally a croft cottage, Westfield House is set in its own gardens and 2 acres of grounds. Its gently sloping grass fields lead down to the sea shore. Dolphins, whales, seals and otters are spotted directly from the property and fishing off the rocks is highly recommended. The hills and mountains beyond serve as a wonderful backdrop. The cottage has been tastefully furnished and renovated and now provides attractive, warm and welcoming accommodation in a truly spectacular setting. The cottage is situated in a quiet no through road that leads down to a lighthouse and out onto the rocks. Adjoining the cottage the land goes straight out onto open hillside, providing unlimited scope for superb hill walking amongst some of the most amazing scenery in the Highlands. This area is designated as the largest Geopark in Europe. Majestic mountains interspersed with pretty lochs make this a climber's and hill walker's paradise. The nearby town of Ullapool, just over two miles away is absolutely charming. Built as a model town by Thomas Telford, its whitewashed buildings and wide sweeping harbour never fail to impress the visitor. Seals can be seen bobbing amongst the fishing boats as they unload their catches. There is an excellent selection of restaurants, bistros and small shops along the seafront and boat trips run from the harbour to explore the coastline, including a wonderful pleasure trip out to the nearby Summer Isles. Ullapool is also the terminus for the ferry to Stornoway in the Outer Isles. There is a fascinating museum as well as an excellent sports centre in the town and a wide variety of events, galas and activities take place here throughout the year. This area of North West Scotland is renowned for its pristine sandy beaches, ancient settlements and incredible sandstone mountains. On a trip through the local area known as Assynt the visitor can explore the Bone Caves (a series of caves and tunnels which have recently been found to contain bones and fossils of long extinct animals, dating back over 4500 years) and the ruins of Ardvreck Castle perched on the edge of Loch Assynt, before arriving in the pretty fishing port of Lochinver. The nearby white shell beach of Achmelvich is simply stunning. Canoeing, sailing, body boarding, golf, fishing (sea, river and loch), horse riding, mountain biking, climbing and hill walking are all enjoyed in the area.
Westfield House is superbly placed for exploring the enchanting region of the Highlands

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!
