About Red Squirrel Cabin

Red Squirrel Cabin is an eco-friendly cabin sleeping two people in either one superking (6ft-wide) or two 3ft single beds. The design and decor sit perfectly in the Highland setting near Ullapool, with guests enjoying spectacular views over the treetops of Leckmelm Wood down to Loch Broom. Every aspect is carefully considered to help you slow down, relax and recharge. You can combine a high standard of comfort with the reassurance that your choice of self-catering accommodation is environmentally conscientious, helping to protect the beauty of its surroundings for future generations.

Ullapool is only 2.5 miles from your cabin, providing all the amenities you'll need for a self-catering Highland holiday. Ullapool appeals to a vast cross-section of people, from those who pass through on the North Coast 500 Route to hill walkers, mountain bikers, artists, anglers, historians and gourmands. Ecotone Cabins cater for all but are especially appealing to people who have time to stop and drink in everything the west coast offers. Spectacular views, unique experiences, and delectable food await you in all seasons. It's hard to feel like a tourist just passing through when the community is as welcoming as this one.

Spend blissful days on (or in!) the water, paddleboarding, canoeing, sailing or fishing. Alternatively, walk or cycle your way around the loch or to the mountain above for a bird's eye view of the incredible landscape. Take a picnic and a billy to brew a cuppa somewhere along the way or go all-in with a guided nature walk, lead by a qualified ecologist with over 40 years experience in Highland ecology. Ullapool is renowned for the quality of its fresh seafood, with nothing better to warm your cockles after a winter's walk than a warm bowl of chowder.

Guests rave about Red Squirrel's location, attention to detail, and the way the owners have created a haven that is comfortable yet completely at ease in the woodland setting. Red Squirrel is one of two private, self-contained holiday Ecotone Cabins. You can book them together to accommodate up to six friends or family members. Please see the owner's website for details.
