  • “Meriel is a beautiful cottage, well ...”
    Meriel is a beautiful cottage, well fitted out, clean and comfortable. We were welcomed with a loaf of bread, a packet of shortbread with milk and butter in the fridge and tea and coffee stuff too. The wood-burning stove was all set and there was plenty more logs and kindling for our stay, everything for our comfort had been considered.

The only downside was that in November everything local is closed except the wee food shops. The nearest restaurant at this time of year was Gairloch.

The property

An impressive detached cottage situated on the outskirts of the village of Laide in a superb rural location on the west coast of Scotland, with panoramic mountain and sea views.

You reach the cottage after a short drive along a stone track, where it is nestled in an acre of grounds in a wonderful secluded spot.

There are walks direct from the cottage to explore the waterfall nearby, the surrounding hills or down to the shore, where you might glimpse a seal basking on the rocks.

There is also ample parking at the cottage.

The cottage offers a traditional croft style, built using Torridonian sandstone and finished to a very high standard.

Inside, the sitting room features a stunning vaulted timber ceiling and beautifully hand crafted stone wall with a woodburner for a cosy night in or just a relaxing space to enjoy the views.

The large, well equipped kitchen and dinning area are ideal for preparing and sharing a meal together after a day exploring the Highlands and again you can relax here and enjoy the views out to sea.

The double bedroom has plenty of matching furnishings to store your belongings and luxurious bedding for a peaceful nights sleep.

Adjacent to this is the family bathroom with a modern white suite including a shower and bath.

The twin bedroom is equally comfortable with views of the countryside and a spacious white en-suite featuring a walk in shower.

The cottage offers comfort and charm for couples to enjoy a peaceful getaway or families to make the most of the open space.

The cottage is ideally situated for exploring all the Highlands has to offer.

The village of Laide has a well stocked shop, post office and petrol station.

A little further on at Aultbea there is another shop, a hotel/ restaurant, cafes and gift shops.

Further afield in Gairloch and Ullapool are sports facilities, supermarkets, hotels, restaurants and numerous opportunities for outdoor activities, such as hill walking, kayaking, horse riding, golf and boat trips and many more.

A must is the beautiful sandy beach at Gruinard and Laide has a 200 acre wood on the doorstep where you can try to spot some of the amazing wildlife and flora the Highlands has to offer.
