Property code: CA357

One-of- two detached properties set in a spectacular and secluded location, experience life with an entire island (almost) to yourself when staying at this cosy ground floor property – the perfect retreat for unwinding from life's daily stresses.

Dry Island, upon which this property is set, is a beautiful and peaceful island brimming with wildlife and gorgeous scenery. For those that are a fan of sea life and fishing, sit back and admire the seals and dolphins right from the house itself, or head out on the property owner's creel fishing boat to catch a delightful dish for dinner. The local inn is just 1 mile away, where you will find great food, drink and spectacular views out to the sea where your meal has been sourced from. 5 miles away is the village of Gairloch which has a small selection of cafes, pubs and independent shops, perfect for a bit of retail therapy throughout your stay.

 

Upon arriving at this property, you will be greeted by the owner who will take your luggage over to the island allowing you to experience the magical winding path and floating bridge that lead to this quaint cottage. As one of two properties on the island, the peace and serenity that surrounds this abode will amaze you, alongside its beautiful waterside location with views out to sea and onto the mountains beyond. Inside, you will find a well-equipped and well-presented kitchen and a dining area to enjoy a nice romantic meal at, which then leads onto a cosy living room – an ideal space for enjoying a good book or some games. The double bedroom and shower room are both well finished and have everything you need to both get ready for the day ahead and have a restful night's sleep.

 

Out the back of the property, there is a beautiful suntrap garden area where you can sit and enjoy a nice refreshing glass of wine while the BBQ sizzles away. There is also a wonderfully romantic hot tub. The shared patio at the front of the building is where you can catch the most stunning sunsets – you will be truly amazed at how at one with nature you will feel upon returning from a stay on this island.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £100 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

Perfect place to get away for a peaceful and relaxing break. The views from the cottage were superb and the hosts were very helpful.The hot tub was a very welcome bonus after a long day walking with the dog.

A lovely, small but perfectly practical cottage. It has a washing machine, dishwasher, oven and microwave. Bring detergent for the washing machine if you plan to use it. Perfect place to rest your head after a jam-packed day of exploring the island your staying on, the local village pub and the surrounding mountains and lochs. Great for an active hRead moreoliday. You will need to be fit and energised for the walk to the car everyday, it is along a very rough path along some rocks, up some steep stairs. Hide
