Redpoint Cottage, Red Point

If location is everything, then this is the cottage for you. It is situated right opposite the nicer of the two spectacular sandy beaches at Red Point. Stunning!! You can wake up in the morning and look over the sands, or better still, stroll along the beach before breakfast. The cottage is an old crofthouse which has been extensively refurbished with double glazing, central heating and all mod cons. The views are stunning. The house faces south and from all the windows there is a panoramic view of the Applecross peninsular over Loch Torridon, with the islands of Skye, Raasay and Rona. On a good day you can see the Outer Hebrides across the Minch.

Situated at the end of a 9 mile stretch of single track road, it is fairly secluded, the perfect escape from busy working lives. The recent Billy Connelly film ‘What we did on our holidays’ was filmed on the beach here.

Red Point is where the coastline south of Gairloch turns into Loch Torridon, and there is a beach on each bit of coastline, one facing west and the other facing south. On the southern-most beach are the remains of an old fishing station and from here it is possible to walk along the shore of Loch Torridon to Lower Diabeg, passing one of the SYHs more remote youth hostels. Pony trekking is available at Red Point.

The Copland family, Crieff

We couldn’t have asked for a more welcoming and cosy house, considering the weather. Arrived on Saturday to beautiful sunshine, which changed to gales and torrential rain. Marooned on the peninsular on Monday. Wednesday was beautiful. Spent the best part of the day at Firemore beach – looking for shells – lost count of the starfish. It is truly beautiful. Jenny actually swam in the sea – it was 21 degrees so warm enough to do so. Thursday – walked to Redpoint beach (south) through the farm. Was lovely but very windy. Took the headland path back. Again – great scenery but stepped in a peat bog up to my waist!!! Was grateful for the washing machine.

Thank you for a wonderful place to rest, relax and just enjoy xxx


The Celliers,

In absolute awe! Every window looks like a painting! We’ve had the most wonderful time, walking, exploring, grounding and connecting to our beautiful planet.

We feel so relaxed and peaceful as a result of our stay at Redpoint Cottage. This holiday will always hold a very special place in our hearts, as we scattered our beloved old dog Tig’s ashes at the beach (He would have loved it here!)

With love and gratitude.


Sandra & Steve Huxtable

What a great place, fantastic location with fabulous views all around. Done lots of walks in the area, seen lots of wildlife including grey seals, sea eagles and a golden eagle further up the coast. The cottage was everything we wanted, very comfortable with log fire brilliant for a relaxing peaceful week.


Cath, Stuart and dogs, Stonehaven

This has been the most wonderful fortnight. When we could bear to drag ourselves away from the view we had a lovely time touring the area with endless ‘WOW’ moments. We also discovered we had family living in the area that we’d had no idea about. It really was the icing on the cake for us with a fantastic meal at the Badachro Inn in the company of our newly found relatives, excellent food and a view to die for. Thank you Jean for providing us with such a lovely cottage, so cosy and welcoming. We really couldn’t have asked for more. Hope to be back one day. Thank you X


The Lister family, Glasgow

Wow. What an amazing fortnight we’ve had. Thank you so much Jean for sharing this place with us, it will live long in the memory. The cottage itself felt like a home from home – very comfortable and clean. We will all miss those views looking out to the islands and watching the skies change. We saw some incredible sunsets. Weather could not have been better, so we feel very blessed to have experienced the place in the sunshine. Lovely walks to both beaches and to the Fairy Lochs nearby. Saw dolphins in the bay, golden eagles, had a curlew in the garden and on the last night an unexpected visit from a pine marten to the log in the garden where we’d been feeding the birds. What a send off! Hope to return another day, but for now we’ll take home our happy thoughts and photos of a brilliant holiday. Thank you.
