  • “Twin beds need mattresses replacing or mattress toppers.”

    Not a comfortable experience for the adults using these.

    Not a comfortable experience for the adults using these. Towels could be improved both in quality & size. Fridge - couldn't fit milk bottle in without rearranging shelves as no door shelf. Inadequate size for 4 guests bringing own supplies to a house in a location with limited local facilities Kitchen cupboards - again, these need to be rearranged to provide guests with clear space to store provisions.

The property

This spacious detached, wooden lodge is superbly situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac on a small development of 10 similar properties, in the pretty village of Aultbea in the Western Highlands of Scotland. Very well equipped and close to Loch Ewe, this Aultbea cottage is ideal for a family or a group of friends looking to embrace the great outdoors during the day, and enjoy the local hospitality available on the doorstep in the evening.

Set entirely over the ground floor, this cottage in Aultbea offers two comfortable bedrooms, a bathroom and a neat kitchen, plus the spacious sitting room with dining area provides a great place to relax and gather together.

On warmer evenings you can slide open the patio doors and step out onto the balcony for an early evening drink.

The village of Aultbea has good local services including a well stocked general store and limited cafe / dining options within walking distance.

The larger village of Gairloch is twelve miles to the south, and here you can take a boat trip to spot the whales that call on this beautiful area of Scotland, or why not play a game of golf on the 9 hole course whilst gazing across the sea to the Inner Hebrides?

This lovely lodge is also lucky enough to be ideally located for exploring the North Coast 500, a tourist route around the north of Scotland for taking in the fantastic sights on offer.

This Aultbea cottage offers an ideal retreat to complement your holiday in the beautiful West Highlands.
