Lochend Cottage sleeps two guests and is a detached quaint highland cottage situated in a private secluded lochside position, within a half a mile walk from Applecross sandy beach. Formerly an estate worker's cottage, it is ideally located alongside Loch a’ Mhuilinn, a known area for stunning flora and fauna.
Cosy throughout, this quaint cottage is a perfect seclude retreat for couples and affords uninterrupted views to the isles of Rona, Raasay and Skye beyond. Applecross village has a hotel well known for excellent food. The sandy beach is ideal for a lazy day as well as fishing or swimming, and the surrounding area offers some incredible coastal walks where you can see eagles, mergansers, eider duck, otters, seals and sea-birds.
With an enclosed garden to relax in the warmer months and no neighbouring properties, Lochend Cottage provides complete peace and tranquillity. Enjoy alfresco dining on the patio area with outdoor furniture and loungers for relaxing - the perfect place for a sun downer!
Being in such a northerly position, the nights are short and the days are lovely and long during the summer, giving you plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful views and surrounding landscape. Sitting on crofting land you will often see sheep peacefully grazing and very often red deer.
An incredibly scenic area with a panorama that spans from the South of Skye to Lewis and Harris in the far North West - a truly magical place that you will want to return to time and time again!
