Guestbook comments from the owner

Sandra, we loved your little house - it was so cosy and clean and the walk to the shore is so close - the web site does not do it justice and our dog - Ruben enjoyed his runs into the sea! Comfy beds and a great welcome pack of goodies - what more could we want, the weather was kind to us to as you were and look forward to seeing you all again nexe year if this little gem has not sold. We will book the big one if it has for next year!!

Magnificent Badenscallie.

  • 5 out of 5
We love this cottage and it must have one of the best views in the place. Perfect for sitting out in the garden and watching the ever changing views of the mountains, sea and sky. Watching Murdo and Jimmy working on the sheep is an added bonus too - it is good to see the traditional ways of life continuing in the area and we enjoyed watching the shearers in the big shed. The cottage is really warm and welcoming and is a great place to return to if you have had a good days walking on the hills nearby. The Macleod family provide highland hospistality at its best and we will be back Sandra, you have been warned... Best wishes to you all.

Perfect Peace.

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I stayed at Badenscallie for the first time this year and have already booked to come back next year. We just love the area and this super cottage is the perfect base to return to each evening.
It is warm and cosy with everthing we needed with the best views from the living room windows we could hope for! Beats the city life anytime! The evening stroll to the shore was a delight and the wildlife and islands are just a joy to behold and we can return to our life feeling refreshed after our visit to Moss Cottage. See you next year Sandra!

Location

Location

Moss Cottage is situated in the township of badenscallie and we run an active crofting business here with North Country Cheviots. Lambing time in April is always fun and later in the year you can watch the men clipping in the shed. Behind the cottage we have Conival and Ben More and the Fiddler, all ideal for walking and climbing on and the views from the top are ideal so remember to bring your camera. Badenscallie beach is the ideal place for swimming, bird watching and rock pooling. Also if you are a painter you will be inspired by the scenery.

The cottage is a five minute walk to the beach and is a safe haven for the kids to play in the sand. Ullapool as a 40 min drive away where you will find various shops for your provisions. We have the famous Summer Isles Hotel within walking distance for special meals and another local bar not far away that will cater for your needs. New to the area is the Piping School Cafe which serves lovely lunches and snacks.

Other Activities: Enjoy birdwatching, otter watching,whale watching. Infact, just enjoy the perfect peace and the wondeful views that we see everyday.
