The Experience

Some say there’s more beauty in a mile on the west coast than in the rest of the world put together – vast skies, soaring mountains, shimmering water, barely a soul in sight. Pauline and Seori left London to give their family the freedom to roam. Now they have a colourful cast of companions: sheep, hens, ducks, rabbits – all live here. In the adjoining byre: country simplicity, a Norwegian wood-burner, colour, texture and style.

Sea eagles patrol the skies, porpoises bask in the loch (you can too), red deer come to the garden. This, coupled with Seori’s home cooking, makes it very hard to leave. Start your day with porridge or muesli with seasonal fruit, a Full Scottish with locally-smoked bacon, butcher’s sausages, eggs from their ducks if you want. Set off on long walks through magical woodlands, or climb high for stunning views over Little Loch Broom.

Supper is a relaxed affair in the kitchen with home cooked, seasonal food.

I felt at home the moment I walked in, was it Seori’s smile, the smell of cooking or the numerous guitars. Whatever, this is a proper B&B where dinner with your hosts is a highlight and your room has a good dash of the quirky with a wood-burner at the foot of the bed. Outside the scale of the scenery will take your breath away, as will a dip in the Loch. Wildlife galore and walls from the door.

This was a highlight of an amazing trip. Beautiful, quirky, restful room and fabulous, brilliant, wonderful dinner and company. I can’t recommend highly enough, we loved it x

Caroline, York

Seori & Pauline offer the warmth & humor of Highland hospitality, served up with the wonderful peace of Little Loch Broom. This sweet little bohemian hideaway is down 7 miles of single track road dotted with sheep and cows, but Ullapool's cafes and ferry port aren't too far away. This is a place to cozy up to the wood stove, cuddle up with a book or take a walk through the bracken and wildflowers down to the rocky beach. Mono, the dog, loves visitors and free-range chickens perform an on-going floor show. Don't miss the very delicious shared dinner with local ingredients!

Bob & Meroe, Wilmington, North Carolina, USA

The 8 mile single track road leads you to Peatcutter's Croft where you are welcomed by an array of chickens and ducks as well as the host Seori. The isolation of this property might be seen as a drawback by some but we thoroughly enjoyed staying in each evening to eat beautifully cooked 3 course meals in the company of Seori and Pauline. Lovely local walks and views across Little Loch Broome. Our room was comfortable and the log burner would keep you warm as toast at a colder time of the year. A truly different experience from the average B&B.

The neighbourhood

Badrallach has only 15 full-time residents - it's a remote, traditional crofting township and very much governed by the seasons. Walks and cycles are from the door and nature is all around you. You are 45 minutes from Ullapool on the Dundonnell estate, just off the North Coast 500 and an hour or so from Inverness. The nearest pub is The Dundonnell, 8 miles and Gruinard Bay is 30 minutes by car.

Local points of interest from Seori & Pauline Burnett

  • We're on the celebrated North Coast 500 route dubbed Scotland's Route 66.
  • An Teallach on the opposite side of the Loch is one of Scotland's finest mountains with two Munros and a spectacular ridge.
  • Little Loch Broom is a sea loch (fijord), enjoy classic west highland scenery with coastal walks , forest walks, hill walks, islands and sea.
  • Located only two hours from the very top of Scotland with Skye only three hours south there are day trips a plenty.
  • We've all the maps and local knowledge that you'll need to make the most of your stay.


Seori & Pauline Burnett

Seori is a lovely man, very easy-going and good humoured. He and Pauline moved here so their young family would have space to roam. Seori is very mucical, hence the guitars. He has played in bands and still enjoys writing songs and playing. He loves to cook too.
