Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, with stunning sea and mountain views

Achbeag is a traditional croft house that has been converted into a very comfortable holiday cottage. It retains many of its original features, with exposed stonework in the sitting room and a multi-fuel stove. It has one en-suite double bedroom and one twin bedroom. The small, remote village of Fearnmore is approximately 25 minutes' drive from Applecross village and 25 minutes' drive from Shielding. Achbeag has stunning views across Loch Torridon towards the Torridonian mountains and the Western Isles, with beautiful beaches nearby. The surrounding landscapes are breathtaking. Achbeag is a perfect base for exploring the Applecross peninsula, which offers a beautiful coastline, mountaineering, sea kayaking, fishing, ancient woodlands with rare species of mosses and lichens, wildlife, and excellent local food.

About Alison Wilkie

I live in East Lothian, Scotland, with my husband and 2 young boys. As a family, we love the outdoors and we bought Achbeag so that we could all enjoy spending time in one of our favourite parts of Scotland. The children love to go down to the little natural harbour at Fearnmore to potter around in the bay and on the rocks.

Alison Wilkie purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Alison Wilkie chose Highland

We love Achbeag because it is hidden away and nestled in a sheltered part of Fearnmore, and it has wonderful sea views from every room. It is very cosy with its multi-fuel stove in the sitting room. It is the perfect size for a small family and it is warm and comfortable all year round. At Achbeag, we can be thoroughly disconnected from the rest of the world, and have a truly restful time.

A lovely property in a beautiful setting, ideal for a'get away from it all break'

  • 5 of 5

Our intention was to spend a week in Scotland away from work, emails etc and do lots of walking And see lots of wildlife.... and that is exactly what we got. Otters, pine martins, sea eagles and lots of other stuff. After a busy day out walking, it was lovely coming back to such a warm and cosy cottage. Perfect!

Achbeag is a very remote cottage. There is a beautiful coastline and exceptional, natural wilderness. The nearest towns are Applecross and Shielding (each approximately 13 miles away). The Applecross Inn is famous for its fresh, local seafood, and it is open all year round. There are several other wonderful eateries in both Applecross and Shiledaig, although they may be closed in winter. There is an ancient hazel wood in Applecross, with many species of lichens and mosses, which has a lovely, short walk (0.5 km) through. There is a bird hide at Milton Loch, just outside of Applecross, with many species of birds, insects and an unusual orchid. There are many wonderful walks, including those from the visitor centre at Beinn Eighe.
