About the property

Shore Cottage offers beautiful accommodation for families or couples looking for a relaxing break in a spectacular coastal setting.

Shore Cottage is a newly renovated house, completed in 2016 to a very high standard. The well-laid out open plan kitchen, dining and sitting rooms provide uninterrupted views of Loch Gairloch, with a covered deck which allows you to enjoy the great outdoors whatever the weather. In the living room there is also a cosy log-burning stove. Downstairs, an additional TV room allows relaxing evenings for all – no disagreements about what to watch! In addition, there are a comfortable twin bedroom and separate large shower room downstairs. Upstairs, there are 2 peaceful king size bedrooms with beautiful views over Loch Gairloch, and a separate family bathroom.

The land belonging to the house stretches along an acre of coastline, but the immediate garden is fenced. From the house and garden otters, porpoise, dolphin, seals and many seabirds are often seen.

Shore Cottage is set in both a beautiful and a convenient location. While being within short walking distance of beaches, boat trips, shops, galleries, golf course, pubs and café’s, it is also in a peaceful secluded area – the perfect spot for relaxing.

We have spent a lot of our life on holiday in the area so if there is anything we can help with please just ask.

Fantastic cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is very well located, with a beautiful sea view, close to Torridon mountains, ideally situated on the western Ross. The house is very well equipped with all the modern comfort. The surroundings are beautiful. I highly recommend.

Stunning modern clean property in fantastic location with outstanding views.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property with fantastic views. Interior splendidly clean, modern and stocked with all the right cooking utensils. Ground floor shower fantastic. Excellent location. Close to the "Old Inn" which is a wonderful cosy pub serving excellent fish pie. Also only 15 mins from the "Badachro Inn" which is in the most idyllic setting and serves a fabulous Cullen Skink. A marvellous holiday and will definitely be coming back.

The property was perfect in every detail.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay, from the moment we arrived, was perfect in every detail. The weather was as fine as one could expect for early May and really highlighted the property's design and location. We spent hours watching the loch for wildlife and we're never disappointed. The seals were constant companions when snorkeling around the rocks or catching pollock from atop them. Porpoises were frequent visitors as was an otter, although he was usually to be seen at dawn or dusk.

Although the location is isolated, there is everything you need within walking distance or a drive of a few minutes. The food at the Inn was very good indeed and The Badroch Inn was the perfect waterside pub, just a few miles away on the otherside of the Loch, a great place to end a long days hiking.

Everything in the property worked and there was no having to "get the hang" of anything. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend whole heartedly, a stay at Shore Cottage, Andrew and his family are charming people to deal with and we ourselves are looking forward to another stay.

Stunning Cottage in the most beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We cannot recommend Shore Cottage highly enough for a break away in the highlands of Scotland . It is absolutely stunning and there is a huge amount to do in the area with and without children. We spent an incredible week at Shore Cottage at the end of September and completely fell in love with both the cottage, Charelstown and the wider Gairloch and West Coast area. The location of the cottage is stunning. It is at the end of road beyond Charelstown Harbour that leads nowhere else ensuring its complete privacy. It sits nestled in a small hollow that protects it from the worst of the prevailing weather but which allows it incredible views from the Torridon mountains in the East, south across the Loch to Baddachro and the Cuillin Mountains and west to the Outer Hebrides and the Atlantic - all bathed in the sun from rise to set. This amazing scene is occasionally traversed by the local fishing boats leaving and returning. Charlestown harbour and its small community is a gentle 5 minute wander, past the working pier where the fishing boats land their catch, where you find a small shop run by the friendliest people. They remembered our 10 month old daughter’s name and loved to shake her hand and chat to her which made her gurgle with happiness whenever we popped in for milk and basic provisions. Beyond the harbour is the Old Inn, a friendly and cosy pub and restaurant situated on the edge of the Flowerdale Estate and its beautiful, and accessible waterfall and forest walks. Charlestown really does have everything one could want for a quiet break and anything else in terms of provisions required is available in Strath, a short 5 minute drive to the west. Shore Cottage itself is a recently redeveloped house that fits beautifully with its natural surroundings, clad in larch wood. The back of the house is no more than 30 metres from the rocky shoreline across the beautiful semi-wild garden that is enclosed by a secure but discreet fence. The deck, that is accessed from the sitting room, overlooks the gardens and the loch and is just a stunning sheltered area outside to take in the views. The whole house is warm and cosy and there is ample hot water throughout the day, even when the house is full of guests.

Wonderful seaside retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing week at this property. The house was gorgeous, and as a family of four there would have plenty of room for others. The downstairs is mostly open plan, with one bedroom. The views from the enormous windows were gorgeous, and having escaped from a hectic time at work, really genuinely calming. The open plan has a large kitchen table that made for easily family dining, and the whole thing was of a higher standard than we have at home.

The area is fabulous, from the rocks just a few metres out of the back door, to the 5 min walk to the Local cafe and shop at the harbour front. We went on a number of short (half hour ish) excursions from the house to fabulous beaches, beautiful gardens and various walks.

This is the second time we have been to the Gairloch area, and we will be back again, and will stay at this house. It was wonderful.
