The Stables occupies the ground floor of a converted stable block in the grounds of a large and historic old stone house just 10 miles from Ullapool in the heart of Wester Ross. This attractively presented apartment has a lovely open plan living area with a deep leather sofa and a well-equipped kitchen with dining table. The double bedroom is a real delight, with colour coordinated soft furnishings and attractive pine furniture. A bathroom completes the picture.
The large country house where The Stables sits was built in 1840 and was once part of the Braemore Estate of the renowned Engineer, Sir John Fowler Bart, 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 beauty spots close by.
Visitors are also welcome to wander through the grounds of the house which meander down to the river below. Fishing can also be arranged on the owner’s private stretch of the River Broom, famed 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 lovely converted stable 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.The Stables can be booked together with Ghillies Rooms (CC511319), The Coach House (CC511320) and The Tower House (CC511318) to accommodate up to 10 guests.
