Reviewed by The Guardian: “Ooh, it's a G-plan cave, a cool blend of rough whitewashed stone and glass. Beside a Norwegian Jotul woodburner are baskets of peat and logs. A Vitra chair by Mario Bellini is covered by a sheepskin throw and sits invitingly beside shelves bearing Scottish titles.” Sally Shalam, May 2009.
Nestled in the foothills of Beinn Goblach on the shore of Little loch Broom, The Peatcutter's Croft is the perfect retreat for lovers, adventurers and families looking for a slice of contemporary Scottish style.
The 150-year-old croft house has an adjoining self-contained bed and breakfast apartment with its own front door so you can come and go as you please, making it the perfect base for taking it easy or enjoying the rich outdoor pursuits the area is so famous for.
Just a short stroll across the fields is our own rocky beach, where you can sit in perfect solitude and watch for porpoises, or fish for mackerel to grill on the Rayburn. The more adventurous can scale one of the area's 22 Munroes - An Teallach is just at the end of our road - or cycle along the footpath to the pioneering Scoraig community at the tip of the peninsula. We can also cook a delicious meal of homegrown and locally-sourced produce for you to come home to.
Your apartment is equipped with a peat-burning stove, quality furnishings and fine toiletries, plus an en-suite bathroom, tea and coffee making facilities, Sky TV and its own small library.
Come to enjoy the good life at The Peatcutter's Croft and discover the beauty of Badrallach.
Rooms cost just £35 per person per night.
Voted in The Observer's 'Top 20 Best-Kept Travel Secrets' in October 2007, Badrallach is a place of great beauty and is the perfect Highland hideaway. Situated on the Dundonnell Estate, just south of Ullapool, The Peatcutter's Croft has been a working croft since the 19th Century and, wherever possible, we live off the surrounding land and sea - growing our own fruit and vegetables, enjoying fresh fish from the loch and cutting peat from the hillside.
Our stylish self-contained bed and breakfast apartment is adjacent to our family home and is equipped with crisp bedding, fine toiletries and quality furnishings. You can relax in comfort - just pull down a book from the shelf, turn on the gaslight, snuggle into the sheepskin and warm your toes by the peat-burning stove.
The apartment has its own front door, well-appointed bathroom, comfortable beds, easy chairs, Sky TV and gorgeous views to the loch below. It sleeps up to three people and can accommodate children, too.
The area boasts a wide array of rugged peaks, white sandy beaches and beautiful lochs and rivers perfect for those in search of holidays catering for sailing, scuba diving, hill walking, bird watching, climbing and fishing. Ullapool, An Teallach, Inverewe Gardens, Inverness, Culloden and Mellon Udrigle are all within easy reach. You can also wander through our garden with its many fruit trees, play the piano or guitar, and indulge in our wide selection of music, books and board games.
You will breakfast on the finest quality produce - local smoked fish or sausages, porridge with cream, or fresh eggs and home-made bread and onion jam. Dinner at The Peatcutter's Croft is a delicious option, too - just give us a steer on what you'd like and we'll rustle up something tasty.
