  • "Could do with more cutlery, crockery and glassware."

    Slightly odd to have full size dishwasher and only 4 knives and forks.

  • "The Gate House is quirky, unusual and fitted out to a very high standard."

    It's by a main road, but triple glazing keeps it quiet inside. There were no problems with anything in the house - great shower, comfy beds. A sofa would be nice as would a cafetiere or coffee machine. There is no freezer - but the ice box in the fridge works well. Good mobile signal.

  • "The Gate House is in a fantastic position for accessing walking around Ullapool."

    I used it as a base for walks in the Fainnachs, Dundonnels and around Assynt. It is close enough to Ullapool, without feeling like a 'town setting'. Perfect for self catering as the oven and hob were well specified. As it is a gatehouse, it is on the entrance to a large estate, but it was very quiet at night. It is exceptionally well decorated and appointed, and is well described on the site, so there were no surprises about equipment etc. There are now plenty of knives. I met Wayne (who seems to oversee the place) and he was very pleasant and helpful and keen to set up the place for the best possible stay. The cottage is decorated to a high standard and is really set up to be a really pleasant place to stay. I really liked the details like the use of the local wool pattern for the cushions and blinds. I would happily stay again, I am contemplating a booking for later in the year and this would be my base again.

  • "0ne very small thing I completely understand the COVID situation and why properties need to have the minimum equipment but only 1 very small sharp( that was not very sharp) is taking it a little to far would suggest 2 as a minimum would be a good shout , Great place to stay with many fantastic walks on your door step would visit again any time and the seafood shack in Ullapool for still remains the best takeaway in the UK if you are a fish love."

The property

Ullapool 14.8 miles.

Situated adjacent to Corrieshalloch, resting amidst the mountain scenery of Beinn Dearg and Sgurr Mor, is this detached, stone-built dwelling, The Gate House.

Resting at the entrance of the Braemore Estate, this wonderful accommodation is ideal for a couple or a group of friends seeking a walking holiday, or simply an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Be welcomed into the property into the spacious open-plan living room, where a charming woodburning stove offers a sense of comfort during those chilly winter evenings.

Beyond the fire is the contemporary kitchen, fitted with everything you could possibly need to pack a picnic for your next day’s hike or a heart-warming evening meal to refuel after an action-packed afternoon.

Gather with your loved ones around the formal dining table to tuck into your home-cooked meal as you catch up on the day’s events and the woodburning stove gently fills the room with warmth before you head to bed.

The contemporary charm of the dwelling is continued into the bedroom, where two well-presented bunk beds await you, designed to ensure a flexible sleeping arrangement to suit the needs of your group.

If you don’t feel like cooking one evening, or looking to celebrate a special occasion, head to the nearby village of Ullapool, where you will be spoilt for choice by the bars, pubs and restaurants that await you, catering to all tastes and requirements.

Make The Gate House a wonderful stop on an adventurous road trip; the North Coast 500 is a beautifully scenic route around the north coast of Scotland and with The Gate House lying on the very route you are travelling, you are perfectly situated to rest up and relax before continuing on your Scottish tour.

Whilst you are still in the village of Ullapool, be sure to make the most of their superb activities ranging from seascape expeditions, Shearwater cruises and golfing.

Alternatively, soak up the Scottish scenery by visiting the Knockan Crag National Nature Reserve or climbing the mountain peak of Sgurr Mor or Beinn Dearg.

The Gate House is a wonderful hideaway for exploring the picturesque scenery of Scotland.

About the location


Inverness 57 miles.

Ullapool, nestling on the shores of Loch Broom and overlooking the Summer Isles, is the largest settlement in Wester Ross. This picturesque town was designed in the 18th Century by Thomas Telford and boasts delightful, whitewashed buildings and is also the main terminus for the ferry to Stornoway, the principal town in the Western Isles. The town offers some lovely pubs and restaurants, a range of shops including a well-stocked supermarket, a challenging coastal golf course and a museum and Visitor Centre on West Argyle Street for those wishing to discover more about the area. The museum covers a range of topics including crofting, fishing, emigration and the history of the town. Ullapool is also an ideal base from which to explore the North West of Scotland, with most of the main tourist attractions an easy drive away. The National Trust for Scotland Inverewe Gardens, created by Osgood MacKenzie who collected plants from all parts of the world, is a particular highlight.
