4 Bedroom house. Built on hill side overlooking harbour to Skye.

On the first floor there is living room with sliding doors onto a glass walled balcony with views out to sea and spectacular sunsets. There is a kitchen / dining room again with views out to sea. There is also a double bedroom and shower room on this floor. On the top floor is a twin room with en suite shower room. There is a further play area here with small pool table . We find that we spend our time on the balcony if we want to be outside enjoying the beautiful views out to Skye. There is parking for 3 cars.. we have repainted and updated the kitchen and living room this winter. The bathrooms were re -done very recently too so it is a lovely house to stay in. The main asset is the magnificent views from the main living rooms and balcony.

About Vanessa Potter
We are retired doctors who have holidayed in Scotland for 50 years and really know that we love the place and so have set up this holiday home for our family who also all love it.
Vanessa Potter purchased this House in 2004
Why Vanessa Potter chose Gairloch
It has such fantastic views, especially at sunset but is near enough to pubs and shops to be easy to run and live in.
Very comfortable and homely house, had everything we needed at our convenience.
Myself and extended family had a brilliant week living in Glenbrae house it was comfortable and spacious,had everything we needed. We toured all round lochs,mountains, took in the heritage museum, the Artic convoy museum, the Perfume Studio & Artisan Food Emporium, Inverewe Gardens, and Attadale Gardens all of which were well worth visiting. Would most definitely recomend this accommodation for a great holiday with great views and lots to explore..
Lovely house even better than the pictures
Our family of 6 ( 49,48,18,16,13 and 10) had a wonderful holiday here. The children and adults loved the house. It’s in a great position lots of places to explore. Fantastic empty beaches to explore. Local walks and shops all fine.

Home from Home
Glenbrae was situated perfectly for us and we had amazing weather all week - making full use of the balcony at night. Would recommend the house and when I head back to the area plan to stay here again.
Comfortable house and great location for exploring the area!
We used the house as a home base for exploring the many wonderful hikes and attractions in Gairloch and surrounding area. It was comfortable and well laid out. The kitchen had everything we needed and the view from the living room and deck were memorable!
This is our fifth visit to Glenbrae.
House is bright, even on the most dull of highland days.
The huge rooms allow for individual space.
Beds are very comfortable.
Kitchen full of everything you would need.
Views of the harbour and out into the Sea are amazing and ever changing, made even better by the cutting back of some trees that were beginning to obstruct some of the view.
Local walks from the house to the beach via the harbour and upto Flowerdale falls are easy and give wonderful views.
Local shops are all within walking distance.
Would highly recommend this house and hope to get back soon.
Glad you love it as much as we do!
The area is a walkers' paradise with easy access to mountain and hill walking. It is near the famous Loch Marie but also within walking distance of a fabulous sandy beach for small children to enjoy. There is a 100 year old golf course within a mile( 9 holes) which has fantastic views across the sea to Skye. The house is situated on a steep hillside looking over a small harbour and out to Skye. Sunsets are spectacular! We are within a 40 minute drive of the Torridon mountains which provide some of the best hill walking in the country. The local harbour offers boats trips out into the bay and even to the Shiant islands. You might see porpoise, dolphins, whales and seals , as well as sea birds. We are within walking distance of a small convenience store as well as a pub with restaurant. There is pony trekking up the valley, fishing in the hill lochs and on the sea. Gairloch, which is a 2 minute drive away, has butchers, grocers, bookshop and further places to eat or have coffee.
In event of cancellation £100 will be non refundable. The rest refundable if more than 2 months warning given.
