Property code: CA040

This delightful property is located deep within the Scottish Highlands on the shores of Loch Gairloch, a fantastic vantage point for exploring your spectacular surroundings.

Overlooking the bay in the picturesque village of Badracho, this charming cottage is packed with home comforts for a comfortable stay. Moored yachts, trickling water and views of rolling hills make this tranquil spot all the more special, with an abundance of scenic walks nearby to enjoy. Try your hand at a spot of fishing, a round of golf, or charter a boat to explore the serene waters. Round off your day with delicious fare at the friendly inn, not forgetting a taste of artisan gin from the local distillery.

The cottage is a wonderful mix of rustic charm and contemporary style, with wooden floors, bright decor and a character staircase, complete with rope bannister. The entrance hall leads to an open-plan passage to the kitchen/dining area, with a handy utility room tucked underneath the staircase. The kitchen is simple and compact, equipped with everything you need to rustle up simple snacks or hearty suppers. Gather together at the table for meals, swapping stories about your day's adventures. The cosy lounge is also off from the main hallway, a snug haven with a crackling wood burner for chilly evenings. Upstairs there are two comfortable bedrooms: a double and a twin, both featuring crisp linen and homely details. The adjacent family shower room is irresistible for a refreshing shower after a long hike.

Outside, the enclosed garden is a brilliant spot to perch with your coffee, listening to the sounds of the bay in the early morning mist. You may even spy a resident otter or seal in the waters of the Gair Loch.

Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

Good location for peace and quiet, and a great window for watching bird life on the water. Nice and warm, comfy bed, great shower and all the appliances you would need. A short walk to the pub, with lovely food. We had a great week in the cottage.

A beautifully light cottage with extremely comfortable beds. We loved our weeks stay. The scenery is stunning, and even though the August weather wasnt so kind to us we had a lovely time. It was great to be able to look out over the Loch whilst eating at the kitchen table.
