We are surrounded by lovely countryside, with plenty of walking for all abilities. For those that know Laide Wood, which is next to the cottage, there has been extensive work at the lower end and now you can walk up to a waterfall from the lake at the bottom. We are 10 minutes walk from Laide beach and a short drive to stunning Mellon Udrigle.

For you nature lovers, apart from the usual garden visitors such as siskins, coal tits and sparrows, we have visiting redpoll and linnets. Raptors are often seen circling above. Pine martins are regular visitors to the garden and feed from the window feeder. We have Sika deer in the wood next to the cottage.  Please see the picture page.

The nearest shopping within walking distance, is the nearby post office, which has a few groceries, newspapers and petrol. There is a well stocked general store in nearby Aultbea, . There are good restaurants in Gairloch, but you need to book. We enjoy the Myrtle bank hotel for evening meals.
