Ardbeg, Gairloch

Sleeps 6 - Wifi - Wood Burning Stove - Pets Allowed

Ardbeg is a luxurious property, situated in a quiet location on the outskirts of the village of Gairloch on Scotland’s west coast. Enjoying magnificent views over Loch Gairloch and towards the Isle of Skye and the Western Isles, the house which is new to the self catering market is beautifully furnished and equipped to a high standard. The property makes an ideal base for a family holiday, including those that want to explore the North Coast 500 route which passes through the village.  

Inside the property certainly has the wow factor with the large open plan sitting, dining room and kitchen being one. This room has beautiful oak flooring, a large wood burner, Smart TV and floor to ceiling windows which offer direct access to the exterior decked area. The dining area has a large table with seating for eight, and the kitchen is well equipped with all the usual appliances and everything any avid cook would require. A separate sitting room is also available and this again has a Smart TV.

The property has three bedrooms; the master to the front with views towards the sea has a king size bed and an en-suite shower room with a large walk in shower. To the back of the property there is a double and a twin room, both of which enjoy views to the rear garden. All the bedrooms have carpeted floors, quality beds with feature headboards, and beautiful bed linen and towels are provided. A bathroom with a bath and separate shower and a spacious entrance hall with seating complete the facilities.     

Outside the rear garden is fully enclosed which makes it ideal for guests with children or the family pet. At the top, a gate allows private access onto the hills, where there are various marked walks and archeological sites, the owners also provide a map of this area. To the front the spacious decked area with its table and chairs offers panoramic views over the village and to the sea, especially so when the sun is setting. A large gas barbecue is also provided and parking for three cars is available.

Gairloch has a good range of attractions and facilities for the whole family, including many small shops, restaurants and pub, all of which sell the locally caught seafood. The award winning Heritage Museum is an ideal place to visit, offering many fun 'hands on' activities to keep guests of all ages amused, in addition to the usual historical information about the surrounding area. For the golf fan, a small 9 hole course is available. The course though small must be one of the most picturesque courses in the highlands and various visitors’ tickets are available in addition to club and trolley hire. For those more active guests the leisure centre is situated closeby which has a fitness suite, climbing wall, court hire for short tennis and badminton and various classes are alos available. For the swimmer the nearest pool would be at Poolewe.

For those interested in gardening, Inverewe Gardens (National Trust for Scotland) is located six miles north of the village. Famed as being one of the world’s greatest gardens and originally the dream of Sir Osgood Mackenzie, the gardens are filled with exotic flowers from around the world including Chinese rhododendrons and Tasmanian eucalypts. Various vantage points around the gardens allow the guests to take in the views of Loch Ewe and the colourful gardens with their seasonal displays. The added advantage of a restaurant and a retail shop makes this a particularly good day out.

Various boat companies operate in Gairloch and allow the guest to view the local sea and wildlife, one of the most interesting and unique must be a trip on the ‘Sealife’ glass bottom boat, and many others offer fishing. Back on dry land there are walks to be enjoyed and further afield a few Munro’s for the real enthusiast. For children there are many quiet sandy beaches and pony trekking is available at the Gairloch Estate. All in all a fantastic location for a self catering holiday.

Lovely house and gardens with wonderful views from the lounges and the large decked balcony. The rear garden is enclosed and safe for dogs with a gate at the top for direct access to the fells. This house is in a fantastic elevated position in a wonderful part of Scotland and only a few minutes from beaches and a few shops, pubs and restaurants. An exceptional property and well equipped.

Wonderful Base to explore this Scenic Area. Watched Dolphins playing in the loch from the deck [with binoculars] and Pine Martins in the Garden, a Kite was nose to nose with my wife through the glass of the deck. The House had everything we could wish for all to tasteful standard, views across to Skye.

We stayed at this wonderful cottage for a week. Absolutely 1st class accommodation with a superb elevated aspect overlooking Gairloch bay and the Isle of Skye. We have stayed on the west coast many times but by far this is the best place. I will definitely be recommending this to family and friends.

The cottage certainly had the wow factor. It is set back from the road up a steep drive, we parked right beside the cottage (great for unloading). Inside the cottage was very tastefully decorated, quality fixtures and fittings all enhancing the fabulous balcony and views over Gairloch Bay. The owners have done a brilliant job in creating a fantastic space, we had a perfect holiday ( Spotted a Pine Martin on the drive one night ) five stars from us.

What a lovely house and the view is spectacular! The house is furnished and decorated to a really high standard and takes advantage of the view with huge windows. There is also a large balcony to sit or eat outside (unfortunately there were very strong winds while we were there so we only managed to site out on 2 occasions. There's also a lovely big back garden with access to the hills which was great for our dog. I can't imagine there would be anything you would need in the kitchen that wasn't supplied- don't think I've ever seen such a well supplied holiday home! The area is also lovely - Gairloch beach is beautiful and there are lovely walks in the Flowerdale estate. Really good fish and chips and Chinese takeaway as well as shops stocked with local produce. We also really liked the Tuesday market in nearby Poolewe. I'd definitely recommend Ardbeg and thanks to the owners for making it such a lovely place to stay.
