In the heart of the stunning village of Gairloch.


Starting from late April 2018, we're letting out our lovely little house here in the heart of the stunning village of Gairloch, in the Highlands of Scotland.


Across the road from a wonderful butcher and a 30 second walk from local restaurants, the coffee shop, local grocery store and much more.

Take an evening stroll along the sea-front and then put your feet up in front of the wood burning stove.

About Gairloch


Gairloch is a bit of a jewel of the breathtaking north west coast of Scotland.  It's uniquely well appointed (that's why we chose here to live!) and has something for everyone.



Local facilities

A uniquely serviced community

With numerous restaurants, sea life cruises, pony trekking, wonderful walking, stunning beaches, wonderful views to the Isle Of Skye and so much more, you would be missing out if you didn't include Gairloch in your route plan.

What to do

you'll be spoilt for choice

Gairloch is placed at the intersection of a number of roads, which makes it perfect for branching out to the many activities the local area provides.  Gairloch is paradise for walkers, beachcombers, geologists, cyclists and marine enthusiasts.


Eating out

excellent restaurants

With Spiral and the Millcroft less than 100m from the doorstep eating out is easy. A 15 minute walk along the seafront brings you to the Myrtle Bank, Shieling or Steading.

Or of course you could buy yourself a steak from the fabulous butcher that sits 30m from the front door and eat in style at home.


Stunning beaches of all kinds

With beaches facing in every direction there is something for every taste. The beaches here are unusually varied, from the red sand beaches at Red Point to the white sand beach at Gairloch, to the wonderful pebble beach at Melvaig (go there after the rain to see the colour of the stones!).

Scotland's answer to Route 66


North Coast 500: More than 500 miles of the best the North Highlands has to offer. The route way runs to and from Inverness, venturing round the capital of the Highlands, up the West Coast and back via the rugged north coast.
