The region is considered to be one of the remotest in Britain and the vast, humbling scenery will not disappoint.
Situated in the small township of Arrina, the cottage has the stunning Applecross Peninsula as its backdrop and enjoys wonderful inland views with Loch Torridon just a few steps away over the ridge.
Whether you’re looking to enjoy high or low level hill walking, fishing, sea kayaking, canoeing, climbing or wildlife tours, there is a wide range of activities on offer that explorers of all levels can enjoy right on the doorstep and in the neighbouring villages of Applecross and Shieldaig – both just 15 minutes away by car.
Most famous for its spectacular scenery, Applecross is a small, remote village situated in the County of Wester Ross. To experience its true beauty we recommend taking the road in from Kishorn over the Bealach na Ba, following the coast road to Shieldaig. With its hairpin bends and steep inclines, this track is not for the fainthearted, but is so worth the experience as you will be rewarded with the most breathtaking views across the bay to Raasay and Skye.
Nestled in the bay of Loch Torridon, Shieldaig is one of the most picturesque villages in the Highlands. With its beautiful shoreline, abundance of wildlife and variety of walks suitable for beginners to seasoned ramblers, it is the perfect destination for those interested in sea fishing or those looking for a beautiful location to take a leisurely stroll or something a little more challenging. And if you want to experience the local culture, there is a delightful annual fete held in the first weekend of August where the whole community comes together to provide a fun filled weekend.
Whether you are looking for adventure, culture, fine cuisine, afternoon tea and a delicious cake or just need to pick up a few essentials, the area offers everything you need to ensure your visit to this stunning region is nothing short of spectacular.
