The
Experience

Superb views and awe-inspiring architecture – this interesting property (one of two on the site) has been built by local craftsmen using local stone. High vaulted ceilings, huge landscape windows, a sauna, an egg shaped bath, hi-tech kitchen, log burner; you will actually be hoping for bad weather… Owner Rachel can organise a day’s walking and photography, kayak rental, or order in plenty of fresh seafood if you feel like cooking. Soothing colours calm, but the architectural design will take your breath away, as will the location: built into the side of a hill overlooking Ullapool. Sit back, looking towards the Summer Isles and the sunsets – and let the scenery do the changing for you. Organic highland soaps, air source heating, limestone floors, bamboo tops; green thinking combined with stylish ideas. And those incredible views…Walk the hill paths behind the house, stroll into Ullapool for restaurants and live music, take a boat trip to visit the islands, dabble in a bit of fishing. Lovely.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Gavin & Rachel Anderson

  • Ullapool is a picturesque but vibrant coastal community with a number of good restaurants and shops. The village is renowned as a cultural centre with live music events and festivals throughout the year
  • Ullapool is a perfect centre for exploring one of the wildest areas of Scotland - Wester Ross, Assynt Coigach and to the very North West tip of Scotland.
  • Within easy striking distance are almost deserted sandy beaches, majestic mountains, single track rounds that take your breath away around almost every corner, hidden communities with a surprising number of artist studios, craft shops and quirky eateries.
  • Possibilities for active days out abound including Hill walking, mountain climbing, sea kayaking, angling, wildlife cruises can be organised with local guides or independently.
  • More sedentary days can be spent by beaches, lochs and waterfalls or in the local cafes and restaurants.
  • Stimulating days can be spent seeking out ancient castles and sites, visiting the UNESCO recognised North West Geopark or RSPB bird sanctuaries and nesting grounds, or the more recent historic sites of the Second World War Arctic Convoys.
