A four-bedroom traditional cottage, set on the Applecross Estate, perfect for families and friends seeking a tranquil base from which to explore the Scottish Highlands and coastline.

This comfortable, traditional Scottish self-catering property boasts wonderful views across a country estate to the Cuillin Mountains, Skye and the hills of Raasay. Sleeping eight guests across four bedrooms, the lodge forms part of Applecross House, which can be rented separately or with the neighbouring house to form a larger property with interconnecting passage. Inside, the accommodation is fresh and neutral with a cosy woodburner in the lounge and a range oven in the traditional kitchen/diner. Set out on foot to explore the estate, looking out for resident Highland cattle and wild deer along the way, or pop into nearby Applecross to enjoy a hearty meal at the pub (2.5 miles).

 

Inside, this property has been tastefully decorated and furnished to offer spacious, neutral and airy accommodation for families or friends. Rustle up delicious meals in the traditional kitchen/breakfast room, where you will find an electric oven and an oil-fired Range-style cooker, before sitting down to eat in the separate dining room. After meals, hunker down on the inviting sofas in the cosy lounge while the woodburner roars away nearby. Enjoy an evening of board games with the family or prepare some popcorn and make the most of the TV and DVD player available. Suitable for guests of limited ability, two bedrooms and a bathroom are located on the ground floor, while the king size and triple bedrooms can be found upstairs. While there is no mobile reception at the property, Wi-Fi is included, and a payphone is available should you need it.

Lovely cottage in an amazing location. It had everything we needed. We rented it alongside Faoilinn which it connects to. It was ideal for our party of 9. There are beautiful walks straight from your front door. The Walled Garden is right next door where you can get coffee and a cake or a great dinner. The Applecross Inn, a short drive or a very plRead moreeasant walk away has really great food. There were highland cows and deer in the field right outside the cottage. We loved it! Hide

The cottage was spotless, really spacious and probably the best equipped kitchen with regard to any previous cottage we have stayed in. To have the local red deer grazing on the lawns was special for us townies. If you like walking and wildlife this is the place for you.

Appreciate the peace and tranquility, though in autumn the Deer rutting season starts so be prepared for noisy deer outside at night and close to the cottage. Dogs are restricted to the kitchen and utility areas, not an issue for us, and dogs loved the heat from the Aga.
