It’s quiet here on the Coigach Peninsula, the only sounds the birds, the wind and the waves. Burrow down into squashy sofas and take in the views through the enormous windows or work your way through a stack of books.
Outside, the broch is camouflaged, but interiors are bright and colourful – lovely relaxing bedrooms, modern bathrooms with saunas, a sociable kitchen – with light, beamed ceilings. Sheileagh and Reiner leave their own farmyard eggs, cake and a drop of whisky – they’ve lavished love on the broch down to the last detail, using parts of the old pier built by Sheileagh’s great grandfather in the build.
You’ve got pretty Polbain on your doorstep and Achiltibuie a few miles east, the latter has great spots to eat and trips out to the Summer Isles. Amble along the hills and beaches – there’s a guide in the broch – swim in sea and loch, or hire a kayak and pack a picnic to spend fine days exploring hidden beaches.
