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.
