Holiday home The Apartment is situated just 6 miles from Aultbea and offers accommodation for 6 people; a superb base for large families or groups of friends. It is set on a working croft in Mellon Udrigle – a small collection of cottages and farmsteads - and offers shared use of the owner's garden. There is trout-fishing nearby and the property is superbly located to take in the views across the sea and the mountains. A short walk away is Mellon Udrigle's golden-sanded beach, one of the most attractive pieces of coastline you'll find in Wester Ross.
Area It is a small village with a small harbour at Aird Point, from which you can enjoy boat-trips around the sandy and rocky coast. Aultbea has two churches, a shop, a butcher's, 2 hotels and a local craft shop. The village also plays host to a N.A.T.O base. Large ships often come inshore to refuel here and you can occassionally see warships in the Loch. Aultbea has an annual "fun day" where most people from the village turn up and play football or socialise over a homebaked scone. Nearby you can enjoy the spectacle ofthe famous Intervewe Gardens, a sub-tropical arboretum that is open throughout the year. This part of Scotland is perfect for those who want to explore the country's history and experience the abundance of natural beauty that it offers.
Region From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.
Everything was simple and clear and the views are magnificent.
The best views in the world, comfy, cosy clean as can be, and the most friendly and pleasant people you could wish for.
Excellent location for those wanting peace, and fantastic views of the sea and mountains.
We liked the stunning views and the remote location
Mellon Udrigle is a small isolated hamlet that is quiet and serene. The apartment is well equipped and has lovely views. A special pristine beach is nearby, there are good walks as well.
Spacious flat, wonderful views, friendly owners, beautiful surroundings and brilliant weather!! We had a really great holiday, thank you.
Friendly and helpful owners. Great location. Fantastic photos. Everyone we met was very friendly and courteous. Good walking and cycle rides. Local shops, 4 and 8 miles away, were excellent for our holiday needs. Good mobile links for family contacts.
A super cottage in a spectacular setting. We loved the views, mountains, beach and the lambs that the friendly owners bottle fed each day. All in all the nicest, quiet spot you could think of. Thanks.
The location is superb. The scenery was fantastic. The owners were lovely. My daughter loved the rabbits and lambs. We definitely want to go back, to see the whales, sharks and otters!!
The most stunning location, with a million dollar view of the sea, islands and mountains. It would be hard to find a better spot anywhere!
Beautiful and peaceful scenery, wildlife, and Beach.
Excellent for getting away from it all with absolutely gorgeous beaches and scenery.

The Apartment was a brilliant find. It was very comfortable and we settled in very quickly. It is located in one of the most beautiful places in Scotland. We cannot wait to return again.
Stunning scenery , fantastic views , friendly hosts , wonderful pristine beaches , all to ourselves , spotlessly clean spacious apartment with brilliant views from the windows. And we had great weather... terrific...
The spacious upstairs flat has the most fabulous views across to the Summer Islands and snow-capped peaks, and the Ullapool-Stornoway ferry pass by on the horizon. Mellon Udrigle and the peninsula it is on are a gem. From the living room window are the best views of anywhere I have ever stayed, an unfolding drama and ever-changing panorama of staggering beauty. Highly recommended.
