Birchwood House, Charlestown, Gairloch

Birchwood House is a superbly situated house standing in a large woodland garden and enjoys a hillside location overlooking Gairloch harbour with views over to the Isle of Skye

The village of Gairloch is located on the west coast of Scotland level with the northern end of the Isle of Skye. The area is renowned for its wonderful coastline and stunning mountains, as is the whole of North West Scotland. The village itself has a good range of facilities ideal for the visitors who have always found this a popular destination. There are plenty of shops, a variety of eating establishments and no end of diverse activities and places to visit. All you have to do is explore!

The house, which sleeps 8 is set in the woodland around Flowerdale estate. It is less than ten minutes walk from Gairloch beach and the golf course and only five minutes from the harbour and local shops (some open 7 days a week). You can book fishing, sailing and wildlife trips from the harbour.

A short walk will take you to Flowerdale Glen, which provides wonderful scenery and the start of many lovely walks. On your return you can relax in the Old Inn, which has a fine selection of real ales and whiskys and provides a varied menu for all ages.

The owners of Birchwood House live in the cottage adjoining the house and you can be assured of a warm welcome.
