As you enter the cottage through the welcoming coastal blue door, the slate floored lobby and boot room leads you into the main house.
This charming room comprises two reputable cream sofas, a wood burner, TV with Freeview and CD Player. Everything you need to help you switch off, relax and unwind after your day of adventure.
The bright, clean and well-equipped Kitchen includes all of the usual appliances you would expect and has the added benefit of a large dining table with seating for four - allowing for long, lingering suppers, whilst you talk about the day that has gone and make plans for the day ahead. Off the kitchen are stairs leading to:
Cozy and comfortable, the master bedroom comprises a high quality king size bed that is fitted with a high standard of bedding and bedside tables with reading lamps – if you can stay awake long enough to read that is!
Also designed with comfort in mind, the second bedroom comprises a high quality king size bed that is fitted with a high standard of bedding, that has a zip and link feature, that can be made into two twin beds if required.
Beautifully appointed, with luxurious and soft towels, the bathroom is well equipped with a power shower situated over a good sized bath that is perfect for soaking away any tired and well used muscles.
To the outside of the cottage there is an enclosed garden that features a lovely terrace that wraps along the front of the house.
This is a wonderful place to sit and relax and our guests are welcome to make the most of the garden furniture provided and reflect on the day’s activities.
There is also the added benefit of a barbeque, so you can enjoy dining alfresco.

What a lovely, comfortable cottage, we so enjoyed our stay. We recommend eating at Diabaig and looking out for Eagles. The smoked fish (and cheese) at Applecross Smokehouse is memorable. Please support Nanny’s (the best coffee around), The Potting Shed and the wonderful restaurant at Diabaig. Lots of wonderful walks. We hope to come again.
You found the best location in the west! What an amazing cottage in the most perfect location. We had a great time with our 5 year old – first two days were very sunny, we were glad to visit Applecross and Sand and take in the amazing scenery. Applecross Inn is a must, the food is delicious, with seats found in a flash and fast service with a smile. The highlight for me has to be the walk from Applecross to Sand Beach – amazing views. The cottage is the most comfortable ever – nothing coul…
Another lovely stay at Rowan Cottage, fantastic weather! Great walks and some super seafood in local restaurants.
What a wonderful holiday – a little gem of a cottage in splendid surroundings. Would recommend Torridon Stores & Cafe, Applecross Pub (ate there 3 times), Torridon Inn, and the Walled Garden at Applecross. A must is the mountain pass from Applecross to Locharron. The smoked salmon from the Shieldaig Smokehouse is delicious, wonderful beach at Sand, cosy and perfect for relaxing. Thank you very much!
We returned four years after our first visit sure that it would be books, rain, cooking and short ventures in blustery weather, but we’ve had absolutely glorious wall to wall sunshine and the most amazing temperatures. All the usual haunts of everyone else didn’t disappoint and our walk up to Coire Mhic Fhearchair was absolutely incredible. Cottage still great and garden much improved – sure we’ll be back again.
