A charming, traditional Highland holiday cottage, sleeping 6
Situated in beautiful Badachro on Gairloch's southern shore, Aird Cottage is a charmingly traditional self-catering holiday cottage set in its own private grounds.
Built in the 19th century as accommodation for fish processors, 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.
The Cottage nestles on a grassy terrace at the bottom of a steepish path, with three sets of five steps, that wends its way through mature trees - not suited to wheelchairs or to people with walking difficulties. It has its own private car park.
Aird Cottage accommodates 6.
It is furnished traditionally, so if you are looking for a matching three-piece suite and Ikea-style minimalism, then it's 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.
Within a short distance you can enjoy the best that Wester Ross has to offer – though we cannot guarantee that everything will be available during the current coronavirus crisis. Under normal circumstances, things to see, do and enjoy include outstanding beaches, wonderful walks and challenging climbs, golf, fishing for trout, salmon and sea fish, cycling, wildlife, boat trips, water sports, horse riding, ceilidh dances, great food and lively chat over a pint in the Inn. Alternatively, you can just sit back and relax away from the hurly-burly of everyday life.
PETS: You are welcome to bring one well-behaved dog.
