The Gardener’s Cottage occupies the north wing of a large country house situated in over forty acres of grounds in the stunning north west Highlands. The pretty lounge is warm and welcoming with a wood-burning stove and deep leather suite. This delightful room opens onto the conservatory which doubles as a dining room. Overlooking the private gardens, it offers peace and seclusion. An original staircase with polished wood banisters leads up to the charming double bedroom with en-suite shower room. This triple aspect bedroom enjoys superb views across the open countryside to the hills beyond.
This large country house 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.
Whilst The Gardener’s Cottage has its own private garden, 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 cottage 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 Gardener’s Cottage can be booked together with Ghillies Rooms (CC511319), The Coach House (CC511320), The Tower House (CC511318) and The Stables (CC511439) to accommodate up to 12 guests.
