Location description from owner

The Scotland region

The area is renowned for its unspoilt natural beauty. It is ideal for people who are fascinated by the craggy mountains famous for their beautiful characteristics, Beinn Eighe, An Teallach and Liathach are amongst the most well known. There is an exquisite opportunity for persons with an interest in botany, as the extensive sand dunes ,cliff tops and hills provide a unique habitat for uncommon plants such as Orchids, Bilberry, Wild Honeysuckle, Juniper - whose berries make a traditional addition to any dish containing venison. The slopes of Beinn Eighe and secluded isles of Loch Maree are home to areas of untouched Caledonian forest. There are lovely places to eat out, such as "The Old Inn" of Gairloch. Seafood is of such quality that even the Queen bought a supply of lobsters here when on a recent cruise!
It is rich in history too. There is a fascinating little museum in the village. Some of the many signs of early settlement incude the Sand archaeological trail, 1km from the doorstep of your property

Big Sand

The world famous Inverewe Gardens, ten miles from your holiday home, is well worth a visit. Ullapool, gateway to the Western Isles, is an hour's drive along the spectacular Wester Ross Coastal Trail. The trail passes the Corrieshalloch Gorge, a fascinating box canyon spanned by a new suspension bridge. Wildlife cruises with our local skipper and expert, Nick, are also highly recommended. Rare sea birds, seals, dolphins, porpoises, basking sharks and even whales are among sightings from the Kerry. Boats are also available on some of the smaller hill lochs and Loch Maree for fishing excursions.

Reviewed 19 Jun 2013

Lovely house with beautiful all round views, in quiet location just outside village of Gairloch. Homely with relaxing atmosphere and light and airy rooms with fantastic views. Beautiful areas all around, with lots of wildlife around and fantastic scenery!

“Excellent holiday, relaxing with loads to do too. Amazing views from cottage”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2012

Had a fantastic time and will probably return. Amazing location and views. On arrival our teenage son said "We don't need a TV, we can just look out of the windows!". A week wasn't long enough to do what we wanted to. Only problem at the time we went were the midges, which are the price to pay in that part of the world for the amazing scenery.

“A beautiful location + home from home - heaven.”

Reviewed 29 May 2012

We have stayed here twice before, and love the whole area. The cottage is spotlessly clean, warm and cosy with everything you could think of to make you feel at home; the views across to the Torridon mountains are breathtaking, and Big Sand is a beautiful little community with easy access to the surrounding places of interest and good walking and wildlife. The dedicated dog-walking area nearby is a great asset. We hope to return again soon.
