The cottage sleeps four with additional space for a fifth person on the double futon in the family room off the kitchen. A travel cot is available. There is a large, secure, dog-friendly garden which is mostly lawned (please note that there is a small pond in the garden so young children may require supervision).

The cottage is just a two minute walk from the local pub, post office, doctors' surgery, garage and a five minute walk from the well-stocked local shop.
The sitting room has a colour TV with Freesat, DVD-player, radio/CD/cassette stereo and an open fire for which coal is provided. The cottage has free Wi-Fi internet.

Caberfeidh is a strictly no smoking property. Prices include bed linen, towels, electricity and fuel.
The cottage makes an ideal base for walking, climbing, fishing, golfing, cycling, birdwatching, boating, or just enjoying the breathtaking scenery.

The Scottish Highlands region
If you are seeking peace and tranquillity and a chance to get away from it all, where better than the Scottish Highlands? With unparalleled views of breathtaking mountains, lochs, coastline and countryside, a wealth of spectacular wildlife and miles of pristine beaches, it really is the perfect place to relax and unwind.
There are activities to suit all ages and tastes, whether you enjoy sampling the local cuisine, walking, climbing, fishing, golfing, canoeing, cycling, birdwatching, sailing, or simply exploring the miles of country roads.
The village of Aultbea lies on the shores of Loch Ewe, a sea loch on the west coast of Scotland. The village is a small crofting community around 45 miles from Ullapool and 12 miles north of Gairloch. The area offers a wide range of activities to enjoy, such as a hike through the rugged mountains taking in the breathtaking scenery, a wildlife watching cruise taking you to view the wealth of wildlife and cruise around nearby islands, pony trekking excursions, or a relaxing round of golf on Gairloch's excellent 9 hole golf course. It is also a very popular area for fishing and climbing. There is an indoor swimming pool in the village of Poolewe and the well known Inverewe Tropical Gardens are well worth a visit just 6 miles away.
Only a five minute stroll from the cottage you can enjoy spectacular views of the Isle of Ewe with the beautiful backdrop of the Torridon hills beyond. A short drive away, the pristine, white, sandy beaches of Gruinard Bay, Mellon Udrigle and Gairloch are not to be missed. Also worth a visit are Loch Maree, Scotland's fourth largest freshwater loch, and the nearby Beinn Eighe nature reserve which has a visitor centre and trails for all abilities.
If you feel like travelling further afield, Caberfeidh is ideally situated to enjoy day trips to some of the most scenic parts of the Highlands including the Isle of Skye and Applecross to the south and Ullapool and Assynt to the north. High street shops, supermarkets and cinemas can be found in the town of Dingwall or further east in Inverness.
