Seabank Cottage, Lochcarron

Sleeps 2  - WiFi - Pets welcome

Short Breaks Available - Minimum stay 3 nights

Seabank Cottage sits in an enviable shoreline position in the village of Lochcarron, part of the NC500 route. Standing alone, the cottage is the only one on the shore side of the main street, and directly opposite the Waterside Café, making it easily found. It is in a central position in the village of Lochcarron, which has two well-stocked shops, a hotel with bar, cafes, restaurants, petrol stations and electrical charging points within easy walking distance, making it a perfect location for a Scottish holiday, and for those wanting to explore the west coast and the Isle of Skye further, or a convenient stop on the NC500.

With its own off-road parking, this charming and comfortable property has an entrance vestibule leading into the hall, spacious living room and kitchen on the ground floor, and the bedroom and shower room on the upper level. The property is tastefully furnished, has electric heating throughout and is equipped to a good standard. The window in the kitchen offers unobstructed and stunning views over the sea loch and at high tide in early spring and October the water can reach the house which makes it particularly unusual.  The dining kitchen has a large table, electric hob and oven, washing machine, tumble dryer, 60/40 upright fridge freezer, microwave and is well-equipped with a range of utensils.

The sitting room has comfortable sofas,  rug box that doubles as additional seating, an electric fire and a flat screen 46” TV with chrome cast facility, DVD & Xbox player and a small selection of games and DVDs. Upstairs the generous sized bedroom has twin beds, sofa and plenty of storage space. The modern shower room has a large shower enclosure with an electric shower, wc and whb with 110/240 charging point. At the rear of the property there is a small private patio area giving an unobscured view of the loch and hills beyond, with large wooden table that can seat at least four, chairs and small fire pit (logs can be bought from the Spar shop) providing an ideal place to sit, dine and relax after a day exploring. At the front of the property is a patio table and chairs, rack for two bikes to be secured and storage containing barbeque, golf clubs and zero gravity chairs. The property also has its own clothes drying line on the beach for use during your stay.

The property does make an ideal base for exploring the west coast and is an absolute paradise for all those who love the great outdoors. Here you can enjoy various outdoor activities including, cycling, mountain biking, canoeing and sailing – there is a very active sailing club in Lochcarron that provides lessons for all ages. You can drive round the coast past lovely beaches and breathtaking views to visit the small village of Shieldaig and onwards towards Gairloch and Inverewe Gardens, or perhaps head to Applecross approached by the famous Bealach na Ba, one of the highest roads in Britain, and visit the Heritage Centre or have a bite to eat at the well-known Applecross Inn.  

Close-by you can visit Attadale Gardens, offering visitors the chance to explore ancient paths that wind through woodlands, over bridges, waterfalls and exotically planted ponds. Lochcarron also has its own 9-hole golf course in a fantastic loch side location. One of Scotland’s most scenic rail routes, the Kyle Line which runs from Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh, is located just a short distance away at Strathcarron and makes an ideal choice for a day out. There are several shops selling crafts, paintings and pottery from local artists in the surrounding area.

The Isle of Skye is located just 25 miles away and is well worth a visit, the island offers a wealth of attractions for the visitor including ancient castles, a distillery, visitor centres, award winning restaurants and some of the best scenery that Scotland has to offer.

Seabank cottage is a beautifull cottage on the seashore! Looking out off the kitchenwindow, you can see the shore and sea. Nice place, good cottage, everything is there, what you need! We can also hear the Stags roaring!

What a great base Seabank cottage made to explore the surrounding area ie Skye Applecross etc. Set in a lovely village with all the amenities you could need. Even some finer dinning at Rock villa. We spent time using the binoculars provided either looking out from the kitchen or the patio area just to the left of the cottage. All in all a great holiday.

Seabank Cottage is an excellent base for exploring the beautiful Lochcarron, Plockton, Applecross and Skye areas. Being the only cottage right on the shore side of the road, we spent most of our time, while in the cottage, looking out the small picture window from the kitchen right across the Loch at the wildlife and scenery, using the two pairs of binoculars kindly provided in the cottage. The cottage is comfortable, with a superb power shower, and is well positioned in the village of Lochcarron for all eating establishments and the local mini supermarket. A bonus for us with our electric car is that there is an EV charger again just a few steps along the road, so we started every morning with a full tank of electricity!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Seabank Cottage. The amazing view from the kitchen window alone was enough to win me over but it was also very clean, well-equipped and comfortable with lots of characterful individual touches. its location in Lochcarron was ideal for exploring this beautiful part of Scotland. I would happily return to this special place any time.

Seabank Cottage was very comfortable and well equipped with everything you could need. Location was excellent, right in the village of Lochcarron with all amenities nearby, a lovely view of the loch outside the window as you eat and well positioned for visits to Attadale, Applecross and its pass, Eilean Donan Castle, Plockton and the Isle of Skye etc.

A smashing wee cottage, ideally located for visiting both Wester Ross & Isle of Skye. Lochcarron is a pleasant village with adequate number of shops and restaurants. A couple of tweaks to the cottage would be to install 'blackout' curtains in the upstairs bedroom and along with an updated TV & TV package would enhance the stay.

Smashing wee cottage, ideally located for visiting west coast & Skye. A couple of tweaks would further improve, namely, update TV / Program provider & blackout curtains in bedroom. Other than that an enjoyable stay.

The cottage was very comfortable and had everything you could want. The view from the kitchen window was wonderful no matter the weather. The owners had thought of everything to make us feel welcome. The tray with a tea bag, sugar and shortbread and milk in the fridge waiting for us on arrival was so unexpected and much appreciated.

Seabank was a very welcoming cottage which we used as our home for our visit to Wester Ross. We found it very cosy with every facility we required, amazing setting on the loch, with kitchen view hard to beat. Very handy for local services including Spar and Waterside Cafe across the road. Highly recommend this property

A lovely cottage, we stayed the week after Christmas. The cottage is very warm and cosy and the real fire was a real a real bonus as it was a chilly week. There are plenty of walks from the cottage. The cottage is so beautifully located being on the Loch so the views from kitchen are stunning and ever changing. The local amenities are fab, the local Spar has all one would need and although the cafe over the road wasn't open during our visit I know it's worth a visit.

Second time at this lovely wee cottage and we had a thoroughly relaxing week. Seabank is clean, comfy and cosy. George and Jenny have provided lots of good info on the local area. Lochcarron is a quiet village at this time of year which suited perfectly. Will definitely be back.

Lovely cottage, everything provided, warm and comfortable. The view from the kitchen window over the loch, especially when the tide was right up, was fantastic, watched a lot of different types of weather coming across over the mountains.

I took my dog to Seaview Cottage on the shore of Lochcarron in Feb. It was a lovely cozy cottage. Great view from the kitchen of the Loch. I really enjoy the coal fire in the evening. Restful holiday and great base for walks

The cottage was exactly as described and thoroughly enjoyable, and watching the waves through the kitchen window made the atrocious weather almost enjoyable. If it had a gas cooker it would have been perfection. I will certainly be back. Cheers P Gornall

We have been to Seabank Cottage 3 times and plan to be back in the future. Even when the weather isn't great (as last week) it is lovely to sit and watch the changes in the sea, the sky and hills from the kitchen window. To see the sea lap against the building. In the evening it is ideal to light a fire and chill out in the living room. A new walk in show has been installed since we were last in the cottage in 2013 and that is lovely and refreshing first thing in the morning or when you come back from a walk. The Lochcarron area is wonderful and Seabank Cottage is an excellent base for a holiday in the village.
