The Apartment description

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.

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.

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 most stunning location, with a million dollar view of the sea, islands and mountains. It would be hard to find a better spot anywhere!

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.

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.
