Applecross Manse is an impressive listed Victorian villa which dates back to around 1824.
Perched on an elevated site and set within 5 acres of secluded gardens it extends to the shore and looks out to sea, first to the picturesque hamlet of Ardubh, and then onward to the Cullin of Skye and the Inner isles of Raasay and Rona. The Manse is situated in the pretty hamlet of Camusterrach just off the NC500 and an ideal base for exploring the spectacular Applecross Peninsula. This property would suit a wide range of guests, groups of families, larger groups or work weekaways. You have the luxury of being able to spread out both inside and out.
There is much to explore and enjoy within walking distance. The mountains behind the Manse provide
magnificent views across the bay to the Isle of Skye. Just beyond Glastullach is Loch a Mhinisteir,
the private fishing loch of the Manse, reserved for the Church Minister.
To the front of this impressive home there are beautiful walks to be had around the bay to Ardubh, beaches, pretty coves and amazing hill walks in the most spectacular of settings. For the wildlife enthusiasts, dolphin, porpoise, the White-Tailed Eagle, Otter, and Pine Marten are all native to the area.
Applecross itself has two well established restaurants especially worth a visit, the popular Applecross Inn, famed for its fresh seafood and The Walled Garden (seasonal opening hours). Also, a little further afield, The Torridon Hotel renowned for its fine dining. Applecross village has a local shop for your necessities with a Post Office, petrol pump and for coffee and cake there's the Flower Tunnel at the campsite. You can also purchase fabulous langoustines, freshly fished from the sea, smoked fish and cheeses, just a few miles from the cottage at McIver Shellfish/Applecross Smokehouse, in Kenmore. The larger village of Lochcarron is 28 miles and Inverness is 80 miles away.
The Gaelic name for the area of Applecross is 'a Chomraich' which means 'The Sanctuary'. You will understand, immediately when you arrive, why it was given this name, as it is, without doubt, one of the most beautiful and remote wilderness areas on the west coast of Scotland, lying between the Scottish mainland mountain masses and the Isle of Skye.
