Birch Cottage is in a lovely, isolated location with wonderful views from the cottage windows of the loch and scenery. Both WiFi and TV work well and the cottage has everything you require to enjoy your holiday. A great place to stay to relax and enjoy the Scottish scenery

This was a lovely homely cottage in a great location. We had everything we needed provided and only brought food supplies. The owner left some lovely extra touches like coffee, tea etc and a bottle of sparkles to see in the new year. The area itself was free from light pollution and so had amazing views of the skies at night. During the day there are many local beautiful rural beaches and coast views. Extremely dog friendly and lots of lovely walks from beaches, hills to forests and lochs.

The cottage is in a wonderful location, right on the loch side. The views from the living room window are stunning at every time of day, and you can view porpoises and Ospreys as you eat.

The cottage was warm and welcoming, it had a real home from home feeling. It was well positioned for exploring the Highlands and it was positioned in a peaceful tranquil location. We would recommend the cottage to family and friends.

The views from Birch Cottage are breathtaking, and ever changing. The woodburner was the perfect end to a long days walk in the hills! Will definitely be back!

This is an outstanding cottage and we didn't want to leave, the owner had added some lovely details as well which made us and our baby daughter feel very welcome, at home and comfortable. The cottage has stunning views and is well situated to visit the surrounding area. The log burner was particularly nice. We just loved everything!

We stayed at Birch cottage for a week, just 2 of us and our dog. We regularly have cottage holidays in the North West highlands but this was our first stay here. The cottage is lovely, very clean, well decorated and very well equipped. The views from the front are stunning and we passed a few hours just sitting at the dining table looking out the window. The beds were comfortable (great pillows!) as were the couches. We only had to light the woodburner on the first night as the weather was amazing the whole week. The cottage sits on a working croft, which we hadn't been aware of, but other than not being able to let the dog off lead this wasn't a problem, in fact the sheep and lambs right in front of the cottage were quite friendly and the lambs were hysterical to watch when they started bouncing around playing. One criticism, if it is that, the garden is not enclosed as stated in the description. I advised the owner that we were disappointed by this and she apologised and explained they are trying to buy the land round the cottage and will change the description to reflect this. If we had known the garden was not enclosed we would not have chosen this cottage, but it turned out fine so I'm glad we did. There is so much to do nearby, I would definately recommend Guinard Beach, particularly for a sunset if the weather is good. Also Red Point Beach. Food wise we didn't eat out much as we had our dog with us but I would very highly recommend the shellfish shack in Ullapool, the scallops and cullen skink were amazing. We would definately return to Birch cottage at some point if the garden gets fully enclosed, meanwhile I would recommend it to anyone who wants a comfortable cottage in a beautiful location.
