Description

Occupying the centre of a large historic house taking in the coach archway and the tower above.

The Tower House occupies the centre of a large historic stone house just 10 miles from Ullapool in the heart of Wester Ross. This attractive apartment takes in the coach archway and the tower above, making this an unusual feature to this charming accommodation. The Tower House has one double bedroom and one twin bedroom, with an additional single bed if required. Both bedrooms are tastefully decorated and furnished with quality pine furniture and matching Royal Stewart tartan curtains and duvets. There is a good sized open plan living area, with feature wood burning stove, deep leather sofas and modern kitchen/dining area. The family sized bathroom has a bath with shower over. A unique feature is a room in the tower, accessed via loft stairs, which affords wonderful views across the surrounding estate lands and down to the picturesque river Broom. At night it is an ideal place to sit and watch the stars or the beautiful summer sunsets.

This large country house was built in 1840 and was once part of the Braemore Estate of the renowned Engineer, Sir John Fowler, who built the Forth Rail Bridge, the Pimlico Bridge, which carried the first railway across the Thames (1860) and Victoria Station and was a pioneer of the London Underground system. Examples of Sir John’s creativity can be found on the land and nearby, such as the suspension bridge over the spectacular Corrieshalloch Gorge and the Falls of Measach, both popular places to visit close by. Visitors are welcome to wander through the grounds of the house, help tend the lambs and meet the friendly Kune pigs bred by the owners. Fishing can also be arranged on the owner’s private stretch of the River Broom, framed for its salmon, trout and sea trout. Just 10 minutes’ drive away is the charming fishing village of Ullapool, which has a good selection of small shops as well as excellent local bars and restaurants. This superb apartment makes an ideal base for a real Highland holiday, with spectacular walks, Munros to climb and cycling routes to explore. There is plenty to see and do in the surrounding area. Canoeing, sailing, fishing, riding, bird watching and golf are all enjoyed locally.
