  • "Honestly one of the best self catering cottages we have stayed in in over 30 years of these sorts of holidays!"

    Comfortable, clean, thoughtfully and well-equipped. It was just the sort of relaxing base to return to after a day exploring the local area. Our dog loved the garden (especially the burn/stream). The gate was high enough at one edge that she might have escaped but we blocked it with a piece of dead branch and all was well. There are loads of beautiful walks and beaches within a short drive and close enough to Ullapool to easily get our shopping. A brilliant holiday!

  • "I am Mr. Mythens wife, Sheila, writing this comment (with Kevin's permission)."

    We only book cottages (usually with Unique cottages) with dog friendly enclosed gardens, and have done so in Scotland for the last 10 years with no problems so we can relax with our dogs outside. Kevin goes climbing munro's so I stay with the dogs most days. I check the properties pictures to ensure the garden is enclosed. We spent 11 days without a double gate that led onto the road, and I had 3 relaxing days with the dogs outside with a temporary gate errected. (We managed to keep the dogs safe in the garden until Tues 31`st May when they ran across the road to a jogger and her dog. - That night a gate was put up.) The property is lovely, clean and is in a great location. We had a welcome bottle of drink and biscuits - a lovely gesture. Maybe some drawers would be good for t. shirts etc. The important feedback I want to give you is that the garden was not dog friendly, if we had been advised of this before arriving, I would have postponed my arrival until the garden was safe and secure (however I would not have come up for 3 days) As the agent, you must ensure that property owners supply what they say regarding the most important aspects of holiday requirements that your clients are specifically looking for and you must be able to advise your customers if this is not the case to allow them to cancel last minute if this part of the agreement is not kept. Dog friendly gardens, within streams etc, are hard to find and so are a big must for dog owners.

  • "Much appreciated the good quality and amount of crockery, cutlery and kitchen utensils."

    Also liked the good comfortable beds. The outdoor sitting area could be improved and a shower cubicle would be more user friendly for us older users.

  • "Lovely location, isolated, beautiful views and everything needed for comfort was there for us."

    This is a great place for walking, cycling and enjoying the Scottish Highlands. Good that listing tells you about distance from nearest shops etc as stocked up before arriving and we were aware that no pubs/ restaurants within walking distance

About the location

POOLEWE

Dingwall 50 miles; Ullapool 50 miles.

The pretty village of Poolewe sits in the shelter of Loch Ewe, at the mouth of the River Ewe where it tumbles down from Loch Maree. It is a pretty place in an area of spectacular scenery and is home to a well-stocked shop, small swimming pool and two hotels. The world-renowned Inverewe Garden (National Trust for Scotland) is half a mile across the bay from the village. The site was developed by the botanist Osgood Mackenzie from 1862 until his death in 1922. Warmed by the Gulf Stream, it is home to exotic plants, imported from all over the world – a must for all visitors to the area. Firemore beach is five miles to the west and north along the coast is Gruinard Bay with its striking sands; a series of attractive beaches skirt the bay and a number are easily reached from the main road. With spectacular scenery, mountains, excellent hillwalking, golf, fishing, wildlife cruises and much more, this is a great area for a holiday!
