4 Bedroom house. Built on hill side overlooking harbour to Skye. On the ground floor there are 2 bedrooms( one double and one twin) as well as a bathroom and utility room with washing machine and dryer. On the first floor there is living room with sliding doors onto a glass walled balcony with views out to sea and spectacular sunsets. There is a kitchen / dining room again with views out to sea. There is also a double bedroom and shower room on this floor. On the top floor is a twin room with en suite shower room. There is a further play area here with small pool table . We find that we spend our time on the balcony if we want to be outside enjoying the beautiful views out to Skye. There is parking for 3 cars.. we have repainted and updated the kitchen and living room this winter. The bathrooms were re -done very recently too so it is a lovely house to stay in. The main asset is the magnificent views from the main living rooms and balcony.

About Vanessa Potter
We are retired doctors who have holidayed in Scotland for 50 years and really know that we love the place and so have set up this holiday home for our family who also all love it.
Vanessa Potter purchased this House in 2004
Why Vanessa Potter chose Gairloch
It has such fantastic views, especially at sunset but is near enough to pubs and shops to be easy to run and live in.
Local Services & Businesses
Sports & Adventure Activities
we could not fault this holiday accommodation. The house was clean, well equipped, comfortable, and the evening views from the deck were wonderful. The house was ideally located for walks up Flowerdale and round the headland to Gairloch beach. There is a surprisingly good shop at the pier and the Old Inn is 5 minutes walk away. The surrounding area was full of interest especially for walkers like us. We were lucky enough to enjoy great weather, no wind,very little rain and no midges; and we saw a white-tailed eagle from the dining room. We would very much like to come back.
Fantastic setting and view from the balcony
The property being elevated has a tremendous view watching the boats and the activities going on in the harbour.
We enjoyed our holiday.
Great house and views
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Gairloch. The house was great and spacious. And very kiddie friendly with the playroom and living areas. Fantastic view from the balcony or just to sit comfortably and enjoy from indoors. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you need to cook and eat! A very enjoyable stay indeed. Would recommend to holiday makers and families.
Great place to stay to explore a beautiful region
We loved this house, which was very well appointed, very homely and in a superb location. Could have spent the whole holiday looking out the window at that view! Great area for outdoor adventure, or just a relaxing holiday. Ideal house for a group of friends or a large family. Highly recommended.
Plenty of room; great view; good location.
There's plenty of room here for a party to enjoy. Gairloch is a long way from anywhere but worth the trip. The house has all the amenities including good wifi but the TV stations are a bit limited, presumably because of the signal in such a remote are. The house is a bit tired looking but the important things are in place like nice bathrooms and good linen. Definitely recommended.
Thank you. Glad you enjoyed it. The house does get well used and has the usual wear and tear. We have since done quite a lot of re- painting and improved the kitchen as well.
Property was as described, in an unbeatable location. This, together with the glorious weather, made it one of the best holdays we have ever had. I would not hesitate to recommend to friends and family. Gairloch is an ideal base with plenty to do nearby as well as a good selection of eating places, especialy if you like seafood. We were impressed by Myrtle Bank Hotel, the Spiral Restaurant and The Old Inn as well as the newly opened Barn Restaurant at the Sands Caravan Park (open to non-residents). Spoilt for choice for walks of all grades. Beaches are all stunning. My new favourite is Mellon Udrigle. A visit to Inverewe Gardens is great at anytime but especially in May when we enjoyed the riotous displays of rhododendrons and azaleas. The rare blue meconopsis were also in bloom. Weekdays at 1.30pm there are volunteer-led guided walks around the gardens which are very informative and free! The great weather was a bonus but I would imagine the facilities at Glenbrae, especially the views from the lounge, would mean an enjoyable stay even in poorer weather. Just sitting watching the comings and goings at the harbour and the stunning sunsets made for a memorable holiday. Many thanks for a great stay.
The area is a walkers' paradise with easy access to mountain and hill walking. It is near the famous Loch Marie but also within walking distance of a fabulous sandy beach for small children to enjoy. There is a 100 year old golf course within a mile( 9 holes) which has fantastic views across the sea to Skye. The house is situated on a steep hillside looking over a small harbour and out to Skye. Sunsets are spectacular! We are within a 40 minute drive of the Torridon mountains which provide some of the best hill walking in the country. The local harbour offers boats trips out into the bay and even to the Shiant islands. You might see porpoise, dolphins, whales and seals , as well as sea birds. We are within walking distance of a small convenience store as well as a pub with restaurant. There is pony trekking up the valley, fishing in the hill lochs and on the sea. Gairloch, which is a 2 minute drive away, has butchers, grocers, bookshop and further places to eat or have coffee.
