Opposite Skye Cottages

Choose between two idyllic holiday cottages located half a mile off the NC500 route. Ardoch Bothy (sleeps 2) and Gracie’s Cottage (sleeps 4). Both warm and exceptionally comfortable, and both virtually on the sea shore with a lovely outlook across the sea to Skye and the Applecross hills.

Ardoch Bothy

An intimate romantic bolt-hole, or holiday accommodation for one or two people. Reached by its own winding track, Ardoch Bothy offers uninterrupted elevated views across Loch Kishorn, to the famous Cuillin Mountains on the Isle of Skye and the Applecross hills. A couple minutes walk and you will find yourself at the sea. Recently converted, this charismatic Bothy embodies a cosy spacious open-plan design, incorporating a bedroom, sitting room and bright open kitchen boasting the dramatic unrivalled scenic views from its large open windows.

Stylishly furnished to a high standard, Ardoch Bothy offers a cosy retreat with year round underfloor heating and a wood-burning stove. Guests can soak up the fresh Highland air from the wooden seat on the stone terrace, accessed from the dining area’s sliding door.

Gracie’s Cottage

This traditional stone built cottage located on the shores of Loch Kishorn (Sea Loch) features unsurpassed views of the Applecross Hills and the famous Bealach na Ba (Pass of the Cattle). The building was restored in 2003 and offers guests a warm cosy stay with central heating throughout. The cottage is virtually situated on the sea shore and can be accessed by a single track road that runs between the cottage and the shore. Perfect for families, Gracie’s Cottage offers ample space inside and outside, the sea is very shallow at the front of the cottage and there are plenty of walks to discover. If you are lucky, you may encounter some of the local wildlife, including numerous shore birds and the occasional otter and seal. The famous seafood bar in Kishorn is also within a miles walk.
