Birch Cottage has been sympathetically converted from original farm buildings to form one of two attractive stone cottages. Overlooking the spectacular River Cassley, they enjoy stunning views of this beautiful and renowned Highland salmon river. Situated on the Highland estate of Glenrossal, it provides peace and tranquillity. The main living area is open plan and the pretty living room has an exposed stone wall and feature wood burner. There is a bright, well-equipped kitchen with dining area. Upstairs are two generously proportioned bedrooms and a bathroom. The cottage has a large lawned garden area, which is shared with the adjoining cottage. Picnic tables and chairs are provided and it is fully enclosed. The estate has its own 2½ mile stretch of salmon fishing on the River Cassley. Six rods are available from Monday to Saturday with the fishing split into two beats with rods rotating at lunchtime. Behind the cottages lies a small loch, which can provide a useful testing ground for your casting technique or an enjoyable introduction to the sport for less experienced members of your party. When it is time for a break, the estate also provides a comfortable fishermen’s hut. The Glenrossal Estate is an excellent centre for salmon, trout and sea fishing. The local area has many breathtaking hill lochs inhabited with wild brown trout and with the east coast 15 miles away and the west coast only 30 miles, the keen fisherman should never be short of sport. Licences must be obtained beforehand so please contact the estate directly to check availability. Birch Cottage is ideally located for exploring the best of the Highlands. The short drive to Ullapool, around 45 minutes, goes through breathtaking scenery to the west coast. A trip east offers the pretty sandstone villages of Dornoch, Golspie and Brora, all boasting superb sandy beaches and well known golf courses. Birch Cottage forms one part of the steading conversion, with Rowan Cottage occupying the other. Beach 20 miles. Shop 11 miles, pub and restaurant ¾ mile. Birch Cottage can be booked together with Keeper’s House (UK5416) and Rowan Cottage (UK5418) to accommodate up to 15 guests.
