    Although we had talked about visiting Scotland, I was merely searching the internet to get an idea of prices. Then I saw The Wee Barn, and I was in love. Ten minutes later I had booked a week in July. Prior to departure we had some good communications with Gael, the owner of the cabin, and we found the accommodation easily enough. Gael greeted us on arrival, explaining various things about the cabin, then left us to settle in. Throughout our stay, Gael was always available to answer any questions, but was never obtrusive in any way. The location of the wee barn is totally idyllic, miles from anywhere, surrounded by countryside and water. Deer roam freely, even in the field next to the cottage, seals can be found on the rocks at the bottom of the lane, and less than a mile away we spotted a golden eagle soaring above. The nearest small store is some 12 miles or so away, and the big (!) town of Ullapool around 35 miles. If you are after a remote, get-away-from-it-all holiday, the The Wee Barn is ideal. There is so much to explore in this area, the roads are mostly single-track with passing places but hardly any traffic, so motoring is a pleasure. We could easily have spent three weeks here and not seen everything. The barn has thick, stone walls that keeps the heat down during the day, and a wood-burning oven to warm you up in the evening should you need it (we didn't). The interior is small (there is a hint in the name), with essentially two rooms: The living room/dining room/kitchen which comes complete with a two-seater sofa, a dining table with two chairs and a very well stocked kitchen with a full-size cooker. The bed is of a decent size with a very comfortable mattress and a walk-in closet. The bathroom is very clean and modern with a decent shower and underfloor heating (which is very welcome first thing in the modern, especially as the stone floors can get a little chilly. In the entrance hall is a comfy chair and a bookcase filled with novels, maps, guide books and other reading materials, which means you'll never get bored in the evenings, although in the summer months daylight doesn't fade until bedtime, so you could easily just sit outside and gaze over the loch. We absolutely loved The Wee Barn, its location, the service received from Gael while we were there and our time in this part of Scotland in general.

The property

Laide 12 miles.

The Wee Barn is a cosy retreat overlooking the idyllic Little Loch Broom in the Scottish Highlands.

With its tranquil, remote location and snug accommodation for two, make this the heart-warming base for your romantic getaway.

Enter into a homely hallway; a comfy arm chair offers a moment or two of peaceful relaxation.

Straight ahead lies the bright white shower room, charmingly retaining the barn's original whitewashed stone wall.

Spend your leisure time unwinding in the splendid open-plan living room; the dining table looks out over the loch whilst the welcoming sofa enjoys the company of a stunning woodburning stove.

Retire to the inviting bedroom at the end of each day, a double bed is enhanced by exposed woodwork and plenty of hanging space so you can pack for all weathers.

A delightful bench comes at the front of the house and showcases the most incredible views of the loch and the mountains beyond, a heavenly spot to sit with your morning coffee or evening glass of wine and simply appreciate this wondrous setting.

A drive along the picturesque coast brings you to Laide, which boasts some local amenities.

You can find a friendly village pub at Aultbea slightly further afield.

As well as majestic countryside and coastline nearby, longer trips can take you to the charming town of Ullapool and the striking city of Inverness with its dominating castle and wealth of amenities.

Make The Wee Barn the location for your much-needed break from everyday life.

Sheltering beneath the massive mountain range of An Teallach, with superb views down Little Loch Broom, Dundonnell in Wester Ross is in one of the finest holiday areas in Scotland - even a short visit will reveal its many different and beautiful faces. Situated 30 miles from both Gairloch and Ullapool, this part of the west coast has many features that make it a great holiday destination; mountains to climb, open spaces to walk, wildlife to observe, clean and accessible sandy beaches, sea, loch and river fishing, pony trekking, and scuba diving off the nearby Summer Isles just to mention a few. There is so much on offer within a short distance of the Dundonnell area, which covers the communities of Dundonnell, Camusnagaul, Badrallach, Ardessie, Badcaul, Durnamuck, Badluarach and the Scoraig Peninsula, accessible by boat and by walking along a narrow track from Badrallach.
