You’ll feel special perched up here in this stunning eco building which hugs the hillside of a gorge: traditional dry-stone skilfully blends with huge expanses of glass all topped with a turf roof. You’re overlooking a natural forest of birch, ash and alder so the feel is intensely private, yet it’s a short stroll to Ullapool with shops, restaurants and galleries. Whatever the weather the views are dramatic, from the waterfall (a trickle or a torrent depending on the weather) to sea, mountains and harbour, you’ll be glued to all that glass. Warm too, with underfloor heating and a log-burner belting out the heat in the open plan sitting room where you’ll find simple Scandinavian-style furniture and original paintings by a local artist. Cooks will be happy with the view-filled kitchen and kind owners can deliver fresh (and live) seafood from the local boats. A wooden staircase leads to restful bedrooms with terraces, an egg-shaped freestanding bath and drenching showers. Activities abound round here, on land and sea – but it might be hard to tear yourselves away.
