    • “This was a first time holiday with our dog and the review reflects this. On arriving at the Clifton the instructions given were first class and access to the apartment was stress free. Inside I found the standard of fixtures and fittings as well decor all to be to a very nice standard and well presented. The dog bed fitted nicely under the stairs and shee seemed happy with that. I found the mattress slightly soft but my wife thought it just right and slept well throughout the stay. A good stock of cleaning products and condiments was readily available and a nice surprise. One of the house rules was no leaving the dog unattended in the apartment. I was apprehensive about this but found that taking her with us at night was no problem. The nearby hotels the Millcroft (50m) and the Mytrle Bank (10 mins) were very accommodating and served food in the bar areas. I found the Myrtle Bank food to be a higher standard but the seating arrangements not so good (high bar chairs & tables), if you want a challenge try the seafood platter. One of the nicer touches was the restaurant below the apartment allowed us to order food from their menu which the delivered to the door. It is called Spiral and the head chef Kieran was very helpful. The food was also very nice. Other amenities that are very close are village store, butcher (recommend their black puddings), Fish and Chip shop directly behind the apartment (fish was very tasty) and coffee shop (homemade cakes very good and available for takeaway). The main reason we chose Gairloch was its central location to allow us to get our dog out for beach walks, the best 2 being Red Point (go left towards the farm for the better of the 2 and quieter beach) and Mellon Udrigle (stunning). They are all shirt car journeys through beautiful countryside. Badachro Inn is a nice place to stop for a bar lunch on your way to Red Point. Lovely setting for a meal. Ullapool is also worth a day trip too. You will not be disappointed should you chose Clifton as a base for your Highland stay.”

    • “The accommodation was absolutely superbly furnished and decorated, with everything you could possibly wish for in order to make a week long stay comfortable and relaxing. We loved the area and will most definitely be booking Clifton again! In fact, we want to move there, we loved it so much!”

    • “I liked that the apartment was dog friendly and in an excellent central location, as well as the décor. Local amenities were close by and it was a great base for day tripping. All in it was a first class stay in a nice place.”

About the location

The thriving Wester Ross community of Gairloch is made up of the villages and hamlets around Loch Gairloch - the village of Gairloch being the largest of the settlements overlooking the Loch. The area provides spectacular scenery, with unforgettable sunsets across the Minch to the Western Isles and the dramatic backdrop of the Torridon Mountains to the south. There is plenty too for the visitor to enjoy; clean sandy beaches, porpoises and seals in the Loch, fishing boats in the harbour, boat trips to the Isle of Skye, a superb golf course, opportunities for fishing and pony trekking, and some of the best and most varied walking in Scotland! To top it all, there are lots of different places to wine and dine around the Loch. A superb base for a holiday!
