Situated in a beautifully secluded spot near the Abhainn Bruachaig river, this lovingly renovated cottage surrounded by acres of stunning countryside, provides cosy and welcoming accommodation for up to six guests. Located in the depths of a breathtaking valley, the property can be found 3 miles down a rough track and is perfect for a family or group of friends looking for a remote and relaxing getaway. With plenty of space for your four-legged friend to explore, this property makes a wonderful base for discovering this spectacular part of Wester Ross.

On entering this bright and inviting property you will find the spacious, light and attractive open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. The lounge area enjoys a vaulted ceiling and double-height windows with stunning countryside views. A telescope is provided so you can spend an evening stargazing, and the space also has plenty of comfortable seating, a traditional wood burner, a charming dining area, and a stag's head set high in the wall. The nearby kitchen is a pleasure to cook in. The ground floor also features a lovely king-size bedroom with an en-suite shower room and patio doors leading outside, as well as a family bathroom and an internal drying room. Heading upstairs, there are two delightful first-floor twin bedrooms.

Stepping outside, you can relax in the garden with a glass of wine while children and dogs can play in the vast bracken-filled land surrounding the cottage. There are plenty of opportunities to spot wildlife, with deer resident throughout the estate. The pretty villages of Kinlochewe (3 miles) and Gairloch (22 miles) have a number of great dog-friendly places to eat and drink.

Such a wonderful place, we felt relaxed the moment we arrived, the views are spectacular. You really don't need to go anywhere in the car as there are plenty of walks. The icing on the cake was the daily visits from the deer!!

Two upstairs twin bedrooms are accessed by a steep, narrow staircase so unsuitable for anyone with mobility issues. Apart from the very small ensuite facilites for the downstairs master bedroom, the rest if the property is spacious and comfortable. Unfortunately, there is no enclosed outdoor garden as advertised. The kitchen is well equipped and eaRead moresy to work in. Levels of heating, hot water and quality of bedroom linen and towels all very acceptable and comfortable. Hide

One of the best holidays we have ever had in Scotland. The location is stunning. Feeding the wild deer by hand was an experience none of us will forget. The drive over Applecross Pass was spectacular and the Applecross Inn was brilliant - friendly helpful staff and lovely food at a very reasonable price. Big Sands at Gairloch is a beautiful unspoilRead moret, dog friendly beach. Sitting on the soft sand watching gannets diving into the water was an unexpected bonus. Hide

A beautiful house in an amazing location. A well equipped kitchen which was great. Every morning and evening we had Red Deer on the doorstep with the views of Ben Eighe in the distance. Some beautiful walks on your doorstep . Will definitely return!

Brilliant, well equipped cottage (even a slow cooker). Everything you need for a warm comfy stay in superb surroundings. Hand feeding the deer, our only neighbours, each morning and night was a great experience. The area around the cottage such as Torridon, Loch Maree and over to the coast with areas such as Gairloch are all within 30 minutes driveRead more once you reach the road and must be the best views in Scotland. We arranged Tesco pickup from Torridon Community Centre, 20 minutes drive away. Hide

Professor's Cottage is simply amazing! The location has to be seen to be believed, we were incredibly lucky with the weather and with the wildlife...Golden Eagle & Deer who both showed up every day (Eagle slightly more difficult to spot than the Deer!) If you are looking to "get away from it all" THIS IS THE PLACE!
