Cuaig Croft Self Catering
Northern Highlands, Wester Ross & Easter Ross
Traditional croft holiday cottage Applecross - Wester Ross - West Coast - Sleeps 5 + 1 - Log fire - pets welcome.
Cuaig is a traditional cottage on the remote and unspoilt Applecross peninsula on the West Coast of Scotland. The old croft house, which sits near a sandy beach, has recently been refurbished and is now available for self catering holidays. Although the cottage only has a view of the sea from one of the bedroom windows just stepping outside offers you spectacular views over to Skye, Raasay and the Outer Hebrides in the West and the Torridon hills to the North.
The house has a cosy feel with an AGA in the kitchen and a large wood burning stove in the lounge. The Applecross peninsula offers some of the most dramatic scenery in Scotland. It is a haven for wildlife enthusiasts, walkers and fisherman.
The food lover is also well catered for with some excellent places to eat locally. Both the Walled Garden and the Applecross Inn nearby offer freshly caught seafood and local produce. The Sheildaig Hotel is a 30 minute drive where there is a relaxed friendly bar and an adjoining restaurant serving food of a high standard. Slightly further afield the seafood bar at Kishorn is one of the areas best kept secrets or for the bon viveur there is the luxury of the Loch Torridon Hotel. The spectacular Inverewe Gardens are also within easy reach.
The former croft house which was rebuilt some 10 years ago has recently had a major restyle. It has been redecorated with a seascape theme in mind - pastel colours from Farrow and Ball, natural driftwood reminders, seagrass carpets and nautical oddities. Cuaig has been tastefully furnished with a mixture of antique and more modern pieces from the owners. The kitchen was designed and constructed by a cabinet maker in Glasgow, more of his work can be seen at Furniture designs to create a welcoming and relaxing environment in a rugged setting.
The two bedrooms upstairs have large velux windows - one looking west to the Hebrides, the other looking north to the high hills of Torridon. The cottage is in a superb position to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the Highlands, West coast sunsets or even a glimpse of the Northern lights
