  • "This was our second visit to Corriness Cottage and once again a very memorable experience."

    It's a great location for walking and cycling in the local area with options to meet all abilities. It's also a fantastic facility to just relax, read a book and chill with a glass of wine in the evening.

  • "Excellent property."

    There were only the two of us staying there and we were very warm and comfortable despite some fiercely cold weather. If there had been six of us the cutlery and crockery would keep running out because there were only six items of each type. I would recommend a few more mugs and cutlery would make a stay easier for larger groups. It is a great location and one of the best cottages we have stayed in.

    Thank you for the feedback, we are glad you enjoyed your stay. You made a very valid point, thank you, we have now increased the crockery and cutlery available. Kind Regards Ross and Louise Property Owner

  • "We had a great time staying at this house."

    Very comfortable with quality furnishings and great heating. We cooked in a lot and had everything we needed. It should be pointed out that due to the beautiful remote location there are very limited shopping facilities, there were no cafes or restraunts open in Poolewe. There are limited options in Gairloch. This was not a problem for us, but be aware. Great walks, beaches and Inverewe Gardens lovely.

    Was a beautiful house, just the beds were a bit hard, everything you needed was there, but would liked to have had some sort of little welcome pack, would recommend to others

The property

Perched on the coast in the western Scottish Highlands in the quaint village of Poolewe is The Cottage at Corriness House.

This tranquil, detached, white-washed holiday home benefits from ample off-road parking, a fantastic location at the mouth of the River Ewe with views over the river, sea and mountains and three well-appointed bedrooms perfect for friends or families looking to explore the Scottish Coast.

Make your way inside to find a homely open-plan living space where you can unwind on the plush sofas in front of the Smart TV while the designated chef of the groups whips up a delicious meal in the fully-equipped kitchen.

Dine together at the table where you can reminisce on the cherished memories you have created so far; or if the sun is shining, why not step outside to indulge in an alfresco affair upon the picnic bench where you can cheers to your getaway with a truly memorable backdrop?

When the sky darkens, head inside to wash off the day’s adventures in the ground-floor bathroom before sloping off to sleep in either the ground-floor king-size or the two twin bedrooms with handy en-suite shower rooms.

Paces away from the property is a local store where you can stock up on necessities to help ease your self-catered stay or enjoy a much-needed break from the kitchen with a delectable meal at Poolewe Hotel Cafe and Restaurant.

Take advantage of the stunning Inverewe Garden, a botanical oasis which boasts an impressive 2500 exotic flowers and plants that you can admire as well as an insightful museum; alternatively, take to the water at West Highland Marine Boat Trips where you can try to spot local wildlife including seals, seabirds, and otters, as well as breath-taking views over the sea!

Venture south to savour the sea air with a walk along the golden sands of Gairloch Beach or immerse yourself in the area's history at Gairloch Museum.

The NC500, a 516 miles scenic route around Northern Scotland also runs nearby providing guests with unique opportunities to explore the rugged Scottish coast as well as charming villages including Ullapool, Scourie and Durness.

About the location


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!
