Description from owner


East Rhidorroch Estate is 9,600 acres of remote and unspoilt beautiful Scottish Highland scenery which is all there for you to enjoy. Come and watch the Red deer roaring, the salmon jumping and the eagles flying. Just switch off and enjoy the company of friends or family.

This cosy cottage is perfect for a group looking for an idyllic Highland retreat. The west-facing dining area has breathtaking views down the glen which are particularly beautiful in the evening light. For warmer days beside the cottage there is a large walled garden and a table and chairs. Fishing for wild brown trout on the river and three lochs (with boats) is included in the rent. It's a perfect setting for hill walking, fishing, cycling or just a peaceful place to unwind with family and friends.***** NEW Wood fired sauna for you to enjoy ******

We are an Organic family run farm, you can meet some of the sheep, cows horses and dogs during your stay.

The private road is 8 miles long, 6 miles of it is gravel (and potholes). Driving down to the village takes approximately 30 minutes. Drive carefully.

“Peaceful Location”

Reviewed 23 Sep 2020

A warm welcome from Iona and her family. Cosy cottage with all the amenities your need, but no modern day excesses like phone, internet and t.v. perfect for complete relaxation in a stunning location. Plenty of walks, fishing, nature watching. A real switch off. We loved it!

“Great getaway from everything!”

Reviewed 23 Oct 2018

East Rhidorroch Cottage is eight miles down a beautiful glen east of Ullapool. If you want to get away from it all this is the place to be! A word of warning though. The track down the glen is very rough and not really suitable for low slung vehicles. That said, my 2007 Honda Accord managed the drive fine, but I had to drive very slowly! The cottage itself was wonderful. Very homely and cosy, especially with the log burner on in the evening. Both Iona and Julien were great hosts, very easy going, friendly and accommodating. For wildlife lovers, this place is a dream come true. We had sightings of Golden Eagle almost every day of the stay. We also had a White-tailed Sea Eagle (being mobbed by a Raven), as well as plenty of winter thrushes, stonechats, and red grouse on the moors around the estate. As we were visiting during the rutting season, we also had excellent sightings of Red Deer. I will definitely be back again, maybe in spring next time, to see the breeding and migrant birds which will be there then. Thoroughly recommended!

“Hidden gem in the glen”

Reviewed 16 Jul 2017

We had a great time in the cottage. Iona and Juliann were incredibly welcoming and always on hand to offer advice about the area or which walks to go on. This was probably the most relaxing holiday we have ever had. Just wish we had booked 2 weeks instead of 1. If you have children they will love it.
