A charming, traditional Highland holiday cottage, sleeping 6*

Situated in Badachro Badachro Aird Cottage from the Council Rockon
Gairloch's southern shore,
Aird Cottage is a charming, traditional self-catering holiday cottage set in its own private grounds. 

Built in the 19th century, when Badachro was at the centre of a major cod fishery, Aird Cottage was acquired by its current owners in 1945, and it remains a home-from-home for the family to this day.

Badachro Aird Cottage from the path down from the car parkThe Cottage nestles on a grassy terrace at the bottom of a steepish path, with occasional steps, that wends its way through mature trees - not suited to wheelchairs or people with walking difficulties. It has its own private car park.

* With 4 bedrooms, Aird Cottage sleeps 8, although for comfort's sake in the sitting room, 6 adults is really the maximum.

It is furnished traditionally, so if you are looking for a matching three-piece suite and Ikea-style minimalism, then it is probably not for you.

But it is comfortable, and if the weather is unkind there is nothing better than sitting in front of an open fire with a good book, game or dram.

From the garden the view is magnificent: south across Dry Island and the bay to Badachro; and east down Gairloch to Flowerdale and the Gairloch hills, mighty Slioch towering beyond.
