    “We had a lovely week in Coast House, so much so that we have already booked to return!”

    It is very conveniently situated on the main road, but is well below it and on the sea side which means there is no traffic noise and it is very private. The views are magnificent and we enjoyed being able to walk down to the coast from the back garden (although there is no clear path and it is quite steep). The garden was tidy and pretty, and it would be lovely to sit outside, weather permitting. The house is spacious, very well appointed and comfortable, warm and the water is very hot. The ...

    It is very conveniently situated on the main road, but is well below it and on the sea side which means there is no traffic noise and it is very private. The views are magnificent and we enjoyed being able to walk down to the coast from the back garden (although there is no clear path and it is quite steep). The garden was tidy and pretty, and it would be lovely to sit outside, weather permitting. The house is spacious, very well appointed and comfortable, warm and the water is very hot. The kitchen is very well equipped - Coast House felt more like a home than a holiday house. The utility room was an unexpected bonus. The housekeeper Isabel and the owner responded promptly to a couple of queries about the heating - a little bit more information on how it works would be helpful for future guests and would have meant we wouldn't have needed to bother them! All in all, highly recommended - thank you.

The property

This delightful detached cottage is situated in the hamlet of Second Coast, two miles from the larger village of Laide in the Wester Ross region of Scotland.

With stunning sea and mountain views, this lovely cottage is an ideal base for a family or group of friends and provides a great Scottish getaway.

After taking in the wonderful views, you enter this superb holiday home via French doors into a modern kitchen/diner which also has a small sitting area from where you can soak up the views whilst enjoying a morning coffee, or cold drink in the evening.

From here you go through into the homely sitting room with a woodburning stove that will keep you warm on winter days.

There’s no better way to relax after a busy day than to light the stove and to forget about the hustle and bustle of daily life.

Completing the ground floor is a double bedroom and a shower room.

Up on the first floor are two further bedrooms both with velux windows and views of those brilliant views.

The twin bedroom has a seating area and the master king-size double also has a seating area, along with a dressing room and an en-suite shower room.

Just two miles away is the lovely sandy beach of Gruinard Beach, and you may wish to take a boat trip to spot wildlife from Gairloch.

Also just a couple of miles away is the village of Laide offering a Post Office, shop and petrol station, plus the National Trust owned Inverewe Gardens are within reach, and the town of Ullapool is within driving distance offering enhanced amenities.

A charming holiday home with a mix of beaches, walks, wildlife and scenery in the area.
