Beul na mara, Shore Street, Gairloch

Beul na Mara is a white washed cottage nestled along the shoreline in the village of Gairloch. It's enviable position would suit couples seeking an idyllic secluded break but equally those who love the outdoors and everything this stunning part of the Highlands has to offer. If strolls along a sandy beach followed by a trip to one of the local pubs is your thing or alternatively for the more seriously minded walkers tackling one of the many challenging Munros that surround this area of Wester Ross, then Beul na Mara is a fantastic base for your holiday on the west coast.

The location of the cottage in the centre of the village means it is within easy walking distance of shops and places to eat and drink but its position down by the shore gives the feeling of being away from it all and the sea is only yards away. The views across Gairloch bay with the Torridon mountains and the Isle of Skye beyond are stunning and as the cottage is south facing it catches the sun from dawn to dusk, and enjoys fantastic sunrises and sunsets.

Whilst the cottage is over one hundred years old and maintains many of the original features the owners have added a modern feel to the interior to enhance these features but also offer the comforts you'd expect whilst on holiday. There is a wood burning stove in the lounge and also in the living/dining room and the cottage is fully central heated and double glazed so whatever the time of year or whatever the weather decides to do the cottage will always feel cosy.

For those warmer evenings there is a decked sitting area at the rear of the house with a terraced garden leading up to a seating area where you can catch a glimpse of the sea over the cottage roof top.

Alternatively you can sit on the pew in the south facing front porch in front of the large landscape window and look out for otters, seals, birds or the boats over at Badachro Bay and completely unwind. Whatever the time of year, while the weather might change, the stunning views from almost every window never will, making this an ideal year round retreat for those who really want to spoil themselves.
