Shore Croft was built to take full advantage of its unique situation, facing south with direct access onto a pebble beach on Loch Ewe, with panoramic views out to sea. The house has a very large enclosed garden with various seating areas which allow for superb wildlife viewing.
The whole interior is beautifully designed, arranged and maintained. It is light, modern and luxurious. The sitting room and dining room/kitchen open onto wide decking from which a path leads to the garden gate which opens directly on to the beach. The house is extremely well equipped with an open fire in the sitting room. There are 4 bedrooms. A master bedroom with an en suite wet room and either 3 twin bedrooms or 2 twin and a king. There is a full bathroom / wet room upstairs as well as a downstairs loo. The kitchen / dining room is extremely large and very well equipped with a large modern range cooker and American fridge freezer.
There is an extremely large (approx 1 acre), fenced garden which has a wonderful wildlife viewing area. The wildlife sightings from this viewing area are exceptional and include otters, common dolphin, harbour porpoise and several different rare sea birds. There is also a seating area around a fire pit.
This is a romantic retreat for couples or a holiday home for up to 8 people.

Facilities Great, Warm, comfortable, spacious
Shore Croft is a wonderful place to stay allowing immediate access to Poolewe Loch. It has been thought out with great care and attention to detail regarding the facilities it offers to allow the aftermath of the many outdoor activities to take place with great ease. The house offers all modern facilities and I would highly recommend to everyone. The beds are very comfortable and the house is lovely and warm. Wendy who looks after the house is an absolute delight, very friendly and eager to help with any issues. One word of warning - make sure you have enough fuel in the tank if you are leaving late at night (as we did). I believe the nearest 24 hour petrol station is at Contin - the first hour of our journey home was 'interesting'!! Fantastic stay - thank you.
Stunning property, stunning location
Having holidayed in the Poolewe and Gairloch area from year dot, we rarely need an excuse to visit again. However if a reason was needed, just walk out of the door at Shorecroft onto the decking and be greeted by a panorama that is unmatched anywhere in the world. it is just one of a plethora of views in the area that take the breath away. The house is superbly designed and laid out and is fitted and kitted with nothing forgotten. I am reluctantly spreading the gospel here as it may jeopardise our chances of repeat bookings!!
Wonderful Shore Croft
We've just returned from a wonderful 2 weeks at Shore Croft. The house itself is spacious and modern with lots of stylish touches. Large kitchen diner equipped with everything you could possibly need. Lovely living area with a real fire and amazing views. 4 spacious bedrooms and modern bathrooms. We were very lucky with the weather and loved the outdoor seating areas and gas BBQ. Every day we spotted wildlife - dolphins, porpoises and seals, as well as numerous sea birds. We all loved the fire pit in the evenings and kids enjoyed toasting marshmallows watching the magnificent sunsets. The house is right on the most lovely pebbly beach, with direct access to another more secluded cove. All enjoyed swimming in the sea loch. Big well maintained garden. Fabulous location, 8 minute drive to local shop and nice hotel with good food. Lovely sandy beach a short drive away. In all a perfect holiday home - all declared it the best holiday ever!
Glorious Stay in Wester Ross
Where do I start? It's been 10 years since we visited this beautiful part of Scotland and the area did not disappoint. There is something magical about Loch Ewe and surrounding beaches and villages and Shore Croft was an amazing place to stay. The house is beautifully decorated with everything you need for a comfortable stay with it's own private beach. Everything has been thought of at Shore Croft to make your stay as comfortable as possible even down to providing a bed for the dog. Fantastic week and the weather was great. We can't wait to return.
A beautiful beachside house
A really beautifully presented and furnished house - warm, comfortable and with stunning views. We had a fabulous stay - highly recommend the Aultbea Hotel for dinner - we cycled there on the bikes provided at the house - a great addition!
Beautiful location and house, wonderful amenities
The house is beautifully constructed, has all the facilities that you're likely to need, and is situated in a beautiful location with fantastic countryside and a beach right on the doorstep. The high-quality bikes available for hire at the house enable you easily to go biking in the stunning nearby mountains. There is shopping, cafe, pub, etc. in
the nearby village and we never lacked anything. This is a wonderful, restful place to spend time chilling out. Highly recommended!
