This linked, former estate cottage is beautifully situated just across a little dead-end village road from the pebble beach at Applecross (pub, shop/PO) a little gem of a village on Scotland’s spectacular west coast. Part of a picturesque terrace of such houses, they have wonderful views out over the Inner Sound to Raasay and Skye, and have a little private garden (furniture) right on the sea front.
Inside, they have been modernised and completely refurbished to a high standard and are now both cosy and extremely comfortable. They are also within easy staggering distance of the village pub (bar meals), while there is a sandy beach within half a mile at Applecross Bay.
In the old days, there was no road access to Applecross – everything was brought in by sea – but now you can drive over the mountain ‘Pass of the Cattle’ or along the southern shores of Loch Torridon, where some of the oldest mountains in the world rear their massive cliffs against the sea.
