Boasting fantastic facilities, this detached coastal property with a woodburner is perfect to relax and unwind. Close to shop and pub.

Spectacularly set close to a secluded shingle beach and private mooring, this detached property has an enviable location and is perfect for those looking for peace and quiet. The property is beautifully furnished and commands stunning sea views over Loch Shieldaig and the sea. Seals and otters are a common sight from the house, which is guaranteed to keep the whole family fascinated for hours. Dramatic mountain views can be enjoyed and for keen walkers there are plenty of interesting walks to be found, including climbing in the Torridon Mountain Range. The cottage is reached via a short rough road from the village where a pub, two shops and a restaurant can be found. Boat trips from Shieldaig and Torridon to the Inner Hebrides on a newly built catamaran.
Trips to the beautiful city of Inverness are easily accessible and the village of Plockton, home to the popular television series Hamish Macbeth is just a short drive. The Isle of Skye is well worth the visit and is accessed via a bridge over the Kyle of Lochalsh. Applecross is another village not be missed, it is an idyllic place where visitors can wander along lanes banked with wild iris and orchids, and explore beaches and rock pools on the shore. It is also an adventure travelling to Applecross, where some of the most breathtaking scenery in Scotland can be seen with panoramic views across the Minch to Raasay and Skye. The nearby Countryside Centre is the gateway to a massive mountain nature reserve. Excellent restaurant 15-minutes drive. Shop and pub 1/2 mile.

The most comfortable cottage we've ever stayed in, Everything is first class, from the cleanliness to in particular, the location. The views are totally amazing, with the ever changeable weather adding to the drama. The small village is wonderful with a great bar and decent food in the restaurant, there also a small coffee shop that's very good. The village store is well stocked most of the time, making eating in very easy. Not forgetting the best smoke house around for all your salmon etc Surrounding area is fantastic for walking a bit of mountain climbing or just viewing from the car. Lots of spectacular wildlife to be seen round every corner. Definitely would recommend Rubah Lodge

This cottage is in a breathtaking and relatively secluded location. Perfect if you want to get away from it all. I was initially a bit concerned about how far away it was from everything but manged to fill our days relaxing, walking in the beautiful surroundings and spending time on the many little pebble beaches. Phone signal is poor (which was for me was a blessing-although there is wifi) Some midges in the evening so supply of spray recommended along with a stop along the way for groceries as there is only one little convenience store (albeit well stocked!) Saw Sea Eagles and otters in the bay and lots of dragonflies and sheep. Batteries recharged! Loved it and we were all sad to leave. Could have stayed longer.
