A fabulous one-level coastal retreat on the unspoilt Coigach peninsula ideal for families seeking a relaxing holiday walking, fishing and wildlife-spotting.

On the western edge of the Coigach peninsula and reached by a quiet winding road passing the famous Stac Pollaidh, this spacious cottage is a real escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Surrounded by water on three sides, spend your days discovering the sandy beaches and exploring the plentiful rock pools. Paddle your way around the coastline in a kayak or canoe or walk the coastal path in search of the perfect deserted cove for a picnic lunch. Enjoy the tranquillity of your surroundings as you fish for wild trout or paint the incredible views of the Summer Isles against the backdrop of the Torridon mountains. If you can tear yourself away from your holiday haven, make the short drive to Achiltibuie (6 miles) to stock up on provisions in the general store and enjoy a sociable drink in the village pub, or make the longer journey to Ullapool (27 miles) for shops, restaurants and museums.

As you approach your beachside bolthole you will be greeted by one of the most unforgettable views of the Summer Isles spanning the horizon and know you are heading for a truly remarkable destination at one of the hidden gems of the Highlands. Park your car next to your remote retreat and take a deep breath of the cleansing air. Gaze at the water glinting in the sunlight and at the imposing mountains before turning to enter your cottage. Your holiday home's interiors reflect its seaside location with white floorboards and natural fabrics, wool and furs. Step into the hallway where you can leave coats, wellies and walking boots before heading into your spacious living room. With a large picture window overlooking the gardens and across the water, spend an hour curled up in one of the cosy chairs with your feet up watching the ever-changing colours of the sea. Chat late into the night on the plump sofas with the fire crackling and the sound of the waves crashing on the beach outside. Cooking is not a chore in the well-designed kitchen with views across the water to the mountains beyond. Equipped with an electric oven and ceramic hob, fridge and freezer for storage of your provisions, microwave and dishwasher, you have everything you need to make your holiday a home-from-home. Prepare freshly caught seafood and local produce to be enjoyed around the dining table as you plan your next day's adventures. Off the kitchen is a handy utility room with a washing machine to rinse through sandy beachwear. From the hallway, there are four well-appointed bedrooms, each with its own colour scheme and individual style. Both double bedrooms have ample storage for your belongings. Wake up in the morning to the light playing against the spectacular mountains and on the clear water. Two cosy twin bedrooms are restful spaces with plump duvets and soft throws. With walls adorned with interesting artwork, the family bathroom is bright and colourful with a separate shower, washbasin and WC. A further shower room with washbasin and WC is perfect for freshening up after a day on the beach or hiking the coastal path.

Put up the deckchairs in the garden to watch the seabirds swooping overhead or stretch out your blanket for an al fresco picnic by the water. Take the few steps to the beach and shoreline for a paddle or light the fire-pit BBQ, grill some freshly caught seafood and gaze at the stars glistening in the dark skies overhead. If you are fortunate enough, you may even see the Northern Lights on display.

This excellently presented and equipped and roomy property is in an enviable position in a satisfyingly remote hamlet in Coigach, miles from anywhere on a single track road. It delivered exactly what we wanted. Understandably pet-free. There are great walks in the area, abundant bird life, solitude and quiet. The place is exemplary for its emphasisRead more on sustainability and environmental sensitivity. We were there only a week but would have been very happy to have stayed longer. Hide

The cottage is warm, comfortable, very well equipped and plenty of room for our family of six adults and two children. The location is beautiful with a beach metres from the large garden with the Atlantic on one side and a sea loch at the rear. Great views of the mountains of Skye and on the mainland. Greylag geese rearing their young along with riRead morenged plovers, oystercatchers, dunlins, sandpipers, Great Skuas, Red-breasted Mergansers, Common Scoters and many more all spotted from the house. Our family were there particularly for the rock climbing and Reiff has quality sandstone sea cliffs with routes of all grades within walking distance. An ascent of The Old Man of Stoer was perhaps the highlight. Abundance of really good hillwalking readily accessible, beaches for the children. Local shops to keep stocked up with essentials, boat trips to the Summer Isles - never a dull moment for those wishing to get away from all of life's trappings! Hide
