  • "Stayed during the week that Storms Isha and Jocelyn hit with a vengeance!"

    I can confirm that the cottage is draught-proof and warm, even then! Initial issues with broadband connectivity very promptly and efficiently sorted by the housekeeper and owner. Sadly the gamekeeper had sold out of all the venison steaks. We will have to return again to enjoy those. Cottage is ideally situated for my (current) favourite area of Scotland: Assynt & Inverpolly. Really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this cottage.

  • "Great location."

    Great views. Great access to the local countryside. Directions to property significantly out. Turn off was described as 6 miles north of Ullapool when it was only 3. Note the 6 miles matches Postcode in Satnav. Irritating when you have driven 10hrs with a baby onboard. Shower was either cold or scalding. Owner said it would be difficult to get plumber at short notice. Research of reviews shows this has been a problem since 2019! Internet was not working and took 36+ hrs to get resolved. With limited phone reception, internet is an essential feature for international travellers who often have to remain connected to their work. Welcome wood pack for open fire miserly and useless without matches!

  • "A lovely cosy cottage, we felt welcomed by the “especially for you“ treat."

    Great place to stay, a great view from the kitchen window, we often had our morning tea on the porch . Enough leaflets about places of interest , books to read, many great places to go to. We have enjoyed our stay a lot, the weather was pretty good, so that an encounter with a billion of midges was limited to the first night! Just a little hint to the owner: a pair of new kitchen pans would be great. Altogether highly recommended!

  • "The cottage is in a superb location just a couple of hundred metres from the shore of Loch Kanaird, with a pleasant walk around the bay available from the front door."

    To be honest I don’t think the photos or description on the listing do justice to this wonderful setting. The cottage was warm (we visited in January) for our arrival and proved a comfy base for our explorations of this stunning area. The drying room was so handy, the kitchen spacious and the lounge cosy, with the fire roaring in the evening. We were supplied with plenty of firewood. Our only quibbles would be the lack of decent chef’s knives in the kitchen and the quirky TV, but these were minor setbacks. We’ll be back, I’m sure.

    The cottage itself is stunning, cosy and very well equipped. Every morning we went for a walk as the sun rose. Spectacular views and then to see and hear the deer at our doorstep. *Goosebumps. The location is perfect for exploring, we visited Durness, Scourie, Lochinver, Old man of Stoer, Gairloch all very accessible from here.

  • "We enjoyed our week at the Fisherman’s Cottage."

    The accommodation was old fashioned but nice and cosy, with comfy beds. The decoration was reasonable with the exception of the shower cubicle which had mould stained sealant and wasn’t hygienic. Needs sorting out quickly. There were lovely views from the kitchen window but agree with a previous comment it would be nice if the windows were cleaned. Great walks around the estate and good location for NC500

  • "The cottage was in a nice position, well equipped and clean but the interior was rather ‘tired’ eg."

    Curtains hanging off a bent rail which I fixed as best I could. There was no hairdryer but this was quickly fixed by the housekeeper. The reason for my low score is the smell of oil in the cottage which originated from a leaking pipe between the tank and the boiler which I identified when trying to discover where the smell was coming from. The estate staff and housekeeper responded quickly and stopped the leak but the smell persisted as the oil had soaked into the ground around and below the cottage. This resulted in me experiencing severe headaches on several days. Luckily it was not quite as strong in the bedroom and I was out all day on an art course. I would not have continued to stay if there had been any other accommodation available in Ullapool.

  • "Good location and generally a nice property but quite a few niggles."

    I sent a text to get the entry code and said that there would be 3 rather than 2 of us - no reply. I had to phone and the owner seemed surprised to hear from me. Then there were only 2 sets of towels. We had mice in the kitchen and had to get Rentokil out. The shower temperature ranged from very hot to scalding, plumber was called but didn't come. Loo seats slipped off to the side continuously. Standard of decoration and fittings very mixed. Dishwasher poor quality, often had to re-wash things by hand, oven had to be turned up higher as it didn't get to stated temperature. Compared with other properties that I have stayed in at similar prices, this one didn't quite come up to scratch. I was very surprised at the glowing reports in the visitor book. I wouldn't stay there again.

    The cottage is very comfortable, has luxurious bedding, high quality sofas, a well equiped kitchen and a great shower. We thought the drying room was particularly efficient. Facilities are excellent though we were disappointed a toilet seat we reported on day 1 as unusable couldn't be fixed till we had vacated the premises. There are lovely views, windows need to be clean to enjoy them.

  • "Splendid view and very comfortable."

    Was let down by the following: We could not get the shower cubicle down to a comfortable temperature. There was no bread bin. The toilet paper was awful. The drying cupboard was good but could be improved by having more strings across it to hook onto the hooks opposite. There were no manuals for the washing machine or the dishwasher.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback, we are glad you enjoyed our beautiful home. The shower in the property has been checked and no faults were reported, the temperature control gauge is working correctly. The toilet paper we use is a luxury brand, and we have not received any adverse comments about this before, guests are welcome to supply their own. We are very lucky to have a drying room in the property and this is equipped with wall hooks and a bar for drying clothing. On arrival guests are greeted with a welcome pack with lots of treats, and a letter with contact numbers, on here it states where the appliance instruction manuals can be found in the property. If any of our guests have any issues we would always ask that they contact one of the numbers provided, we will be happy to assist. Property Owner

  • "The five of us were all delighted with our accommodation."

    The house is in a beautiful location, with marvellous views and no polluting noise. I woke up the first morning to see 3 stags playing in front of the kitchen window! They were having a mock fight and chasing each other, and with the sunrise glistening on the sea behind them, the scene was breathtaking. The house is well equipped and beautifully warm. The beds are extremely comfortable and cosy, the showers work well and there is a drying cupboard which is extremely effective. All the white goods are new and the house is pleasantly decorated giving a warm and cosy ambience. We met the estate manager one evening while we were on a walk from the house to the sea loch. Even though he was fishing he came ashore and told us many things about the wildlife and ecology of the area. He was most informative and friendly and passionate about the area and the wildlife. He also said he could arrange for any guests to go boating, fishing and a number of other activities. We hope to be coming back and participating in some of these. All in all it was a very enjoyable and memorable week, heightened by the accommodation.

    Very comfortable and well furnished cottage in a quiet and peaceful location six miles of Ullapool, which had a good Tesco supermarket for provisions, a petrol station and a fairly good selection of pubs, restaurants, cafes and shops. Would rally recommend The Ceilidh Place to eat; it has great food at reasonable prices and a lovely atmosphere and charming staff giving good service. The cottage offers rest and comfort- but a double bed would give it very top rating- and wonderful views across the loch. It’s location also offers easy access to the NW Highlands, with wonderful drives and walks in what must be some of the best scenery in the world, most of which I have travelled. Cottage has two bathrooms/ toilets and an additional shower room, all well furnished. The kitchen diner gives wonderful views and sunstets and going in mid June to mid July offers daylight from just after 0400 till after 2300. Really recommend this cottage as a place to stay.

    The lack of Wi-Fi facilities and mobile phone signal may be a problem for some but for us it was lovely! PEACE! Prior to booking, I asked if there was a hair drier at the property and was advised that there was so we didn't take one. We couldn't find one and when the owner came to see if all was OK, she said that she would bring one down to us but unfortunately it never materialised - a minor problem. The standard of Fisherman's cottage was first class with nice finishing touches and it was a delight to sit in front of an open fire in the evenings. It was lovely to be able to walk along by the river and to see the stag with his 'harem'. The view from the kitchen window provided some beautiful sunsets.

The property

Ullapool 6 miles.

This smart detached cottage is situated on a private, family-owned estate, set amongst the dramatic scenery of the Northwest Highlands.

Fisherman's Cottage is ideal for a family group, or group of friends who want to experience the peace and beauty of this most desirable part of Scotland.

The interior of the cottage is tastefully presented and offers quality comfort for guests.

There are three bedrooms, all with single beds providing lots of flexibility along with two bathrooms.

The cosy wood-lined sitting room with welcoming open fire allows for views to the sea and surrounding countryside and is a perfect place to relax after an energetic day.

The heart of the cottage is the modern and well-equipped kitchen/dining room where guests can gather to chat, cook and enjoy meals together around the table.

Just a few minutes’ walk from the cottage takes you to the water’s edge where there are breathtaking views of the Summer Isles and here you can pick up The Postman's Path, a famous walk which follows the coast all the way to Achiltibuie.

This is indeed your own little piece of Highland heaven and yet the vibrant village of Ullapool is just 10 minutes away where you can board a ferry to the Outer Hebrides should you fancy a spectacular sea journey across The Minch.

For fishermen then a holiday on the estate ticks all the boxes as salmon and trout fishing can be organised by prior arrangement.

As you would expect the area is rich in wildlife and leaving home without your camera would be a mistake.

Why not travel northwards and explore the wonderful empty unspoilt countryside with amazing beaches and views?

A magical holiday awaits and this smart homely cottage will meet all your expectations.

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.
