The Croft - Melvaig, Nr Gairloch, Highland, Scotland - Sleeps 4

The Croft

This traditional style semi-detached self catering holiday home is located in a beautiful position within the quiet crofting community of Melvaig, near Gairloch. It is situated just 200 yards from the shore and has stunning views of the isles of Skye, Harris and Lewis. It provides the perfect holiday destination for anyone who wants to escape the pressures of every day life and relax amongst breathtaking scenery and wonderful wildlife - imagine enjoying the sunsets over a romantic glass of wine where you may be lucky enough to spot the whales, dolphins, otters or seals.

There are plenty of wonderful places to explore with mountains, sandy beaches and lochs in the surrounding area. It is the ideal place to visit if you enjoy hill walking, golf or fishing and a visit to Inverewe Gardens makes for a lovely relaxing day. The Beinn Eighe Nature Reserve and The Torridon mountains are just a short distance away and Melvaig itself has a cafe bar/restaurant, with another tea room nearby.

The area's attractions include: marine-life trips and whale-watching, including visits to the puffin colonies on the Shiant islands; trout, salmon and sea fishing; a golf course; pony trekking; boat trips on Loch Maree where you can view Viking graves; bike hire; a deer museum and guided hill walks to name but a few.

The coastline around Melvaig and to Rua Reidh Lighthouse (approx. 4 miles north) is rugged and provides a haven for nesting birds, whales, seals and otters. Not only does it provide many walking and relaxation opportunities but there is always wildlife just waiting to be spotted and admired!
