Description

Delightful cottage with decking leading down to the seashore, wonderful for nature lovers, with seals, deer and golden eagle in the area.

With superb views across the Inner Sound to the Inner Hebridean Islands of Raasay, Rona and Skye, this 19th-century holiday cottage has been architecturally renovated to a high standard, and has its own landscaped garden with decking leading down to the seashore.
Set amidst some of Scotland’s most dramatic and rugged scenery, Applecross nestles between mountains and sea and is approached over Britain’s highest road pass. Wester Ross has long been considered one of the more remote corners of the British mainland – and is still known as a haven of enormous beauty and tranquillity; Applecross was declared a sanctuary in 673 AD by the Irish monk Maelrubha. The region is home to the golden eagle and pine marten – and the last remnants of the ancient Caledonian pine forest. To the north is the Beinn Eighe National Nature Reserve (Torridon mountains) where the NTS Countryside Centre provides opportunity to explore the flora, fauna and history of this sheltered fertile area amidst some of the oldest geological formations in Britain. Also north of the Applecross Peninsula are the world-famous sub-tropical Inverewe Gardens, and to the south the picturesque NTS village of Plockton and the Isle of Skye.
The area provides excellent coastal walks and abundant wildlife – seals are frequently seen in the indented coastline, and stags roam the heather-clad hillsides of the Applecross Peninsula. More occasionally porpoises and even the mysterious profile of a submarine lurks in the Inner Sound. Rockpools left behind by the tide provide a great variety of creatures for children to discover. Beautiful sandy bay within 5 miles (see bottom photograph). Mountaineering, kayaking and landrover trips can be arranged locally. The award winning Applecross Inn, renowned for its locally caught seafood and convivial hospitality, is just 10-minutes walk away. Shop 1 mile.

Spacious panelled and beamed living/dining room with open fire and rugs on wooden floor. Well-equipped kitchen. Utility/drying room. Twin bedroom with en-suite bathroom and toilet. First floor: Three bedrooms with sloping ceilings, two with beamed ceilings; two double, each with en-suite bathroom and toilet, and one twin with en-suite shower room and toilet.

    we had a fantastic stay at sanctuary cottage. the location was beautiful and with the exception of not having a cheese grater, the house had everything you could need. the local pub and cafes all served delicious food. I would highly recommend this cottage and will definitely be going there again.

    If you are looking to "get away from it all" Sanctuary Cottage and Applecross are the perfect setting for a quiet family holiday in a tranquil, picturesque setting. Probably not ideal for younger children, however.
