We are sure your dogs don't sit on the sofas or beds but if you think they might do so please bring your own dog blankets to cover our furniture.

If you do not have your own kayaks it is possible to go out with a local guide. Sailing and windsurfing are both available on Tanera, the largest of the Summer Isles. Day cruises around the Summer Isles are available from Achiltibuie and Ullapool. Achiltibuie Traditional Music School offers piping lessons amongst other instruments.

My friend and I çouldn't have been happier at William cottage. It was extremely comfortable and well thought out açcommodation with good quality furnishings and a stunning view over the Summer Isles. It's also well located next to the Summer Isles Hotel. It's pŕobably the best self catering accommodation I have stayed in and is of an extremely high standard. Thank you.

Great cottage with stunning views
Well equipped, well located within the village and beautifully situated to take advantage of the incredible views to the Summer Isles. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be looking forward to our next one. Many thanks.
Not only is this property excellently maintained and tastefully furnished, its location and outlook are superb. Lovely large garden - securely fenced to allow our young dog freedom to roam. All in all - very highly recommended.
