  The Detail...

Please note: Due to current Covid-19 restrictions in Scotland, The Lighthouse, Gairloch can not accept bookings for guests from more than one household. People from more than one household (or extended household) must not stay in self-catered accommodation together while the current restrictions on indoor private gatherings are in place.

The Lighthouse, Gairloch sits easily in the Highland landscape, enclosed in private woodland and gardens on the headland, offering spectacular views and luxurious accommodation. Designed by award-winning architects to make the absolute most of its beautiful surroundings, the house boasts uninterrupted views South across the sea to the Torridon Mountains.

Cleverly arranged, the living and social hub of the property is unusually on the first floor so that those staying can truly enjoy their breathtaking surroundings. On this level the open-plan living room has huge windows looking South across the sea to the unspoilt hills and mountains, with a comfy sofa and wood burning stove, as well as a dining table and chairs seating up to eight people. Alternatively, guests can dine on the elevated outside deck and south-facing balcony. Also on this floor is the stylish and fully equipped Italian kitchen, along with a family bathroom with shower and skylight over the bath. Behind the living room is a warm oak-panelled study/sitting room with a huge antique map of the area, in which you can plan your exploration, read or watch television

Sleeping up to seven people, guests make their way down the handmade oak staircase to the sleeping quarters. All four bedrooms still have views of the sea, mountains, and garden, with the master bedroom also having an en-suite bathroom with bath, shower, and large picture windows to take it all in. There is a further king size bedroom, as well as a single and a twin or super king depending on what is required. Also on this level is a further shower room.

Located in Gairloch on the Wester Ross coast and opposite the Isle of Skye, The Lighthouse is in one of the most scenic parts of Scotland. This unspoilt gem is full of things to explore right on the doorstep, with beaches, mountains, and hundreds of miles of Highlands to discover. For those who seek a little more adrenaline, there are opportunities for mountain biking and kayaking, as well as sea and fly fishing, sailing, and golf. Animal lovers should seize the chance to go whale watching, pony trekking, or falconry.

From the house, guests can also walk over to the Flowerdale estate, where they can visit the arboretum or stroll up to the dramatic waterfall. The famous gardens of Inverewe are only a short drive away as well.
