Original cottage in beautiful Badenscallie, Achiltibuie sleeping 4 persons

We built Moss Cottage 20 years ago and have had the pleasure of welcoming holiday makers to our charming cottage in the quiet township of Badenscallie ever since and have visitors who return each year to enjoy the brilliant views of the Summer Isles from inside and outside the cottage. The property is very well maintained by the owners who live nearby and personally look after the cottage. We have a nice living room with everything you will need for your comfort. Two sofas, tub chair, TV, DVD,Radio CD player and electric heating. The kitchen has a table with 4 chairs and all the normal appliances for your use. Cooker, Microwave, washing machine, tumble dryer, coffee maker and so on. The double bedroom has great views to the sea and the twin bedded room is a big room with a fitted wardrobe. The bathroom has a bath and a shower above the bath, and also enjoys a nice wooden floor as does the hall and the vestible. You have a private garden with an outside bench for relaxing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had a super week in this lovely house. It has everything we needed and the views are just outstanding - five minutes walk to Badenscallie Beach overlooking Horse Island and Goat island with lots of other summer isles too. See you again next year Sandra!

Magnificent Badenscallie.

  • 5 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 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!

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. Dogs on leads then please. 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 meals and Salt, the new locally run seafood restaurant, five mins from the cottage.

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