Cairns Cottage, Gairloch, Wester Ross

Situated in the serene hamlet of Port Henderson on the South shore of Gairloch in the North West of Scotland, Cairns Cottage stands as a retreat amidst breathtaking scenery, offering a true taste of Highland living. This self-catering haven, ideal for couples and small families, spans two storeys with a double and twin bedroom, a living room equipped with a TV, DVD player, Bose sound system, and Bluetooth speaker, and a fully fitted modern kitchen.

The holiday cottage is surrounded by an enclosed garden, providing captivating views of the surrounding landscapes. Cairns Cottage is located on a quiet country road tracing the coastline, revealing small bays, fishing harbours, sweeping sands, and culminating at the renowned beauty spot, Redpoint Bay, boasting a wide sandy beach.

Port Henderson, a small crofting hamlet near Gairloch in Wester Ross, offers tranquillity and a true escape to nature. While the best way to explore the Highlands is by car, given the limited public transportation options, the city of Inverness serves as the main access hub with a national airport, bus and rail links, and trunk roads connecting to Aberdeen in the East and Perth to the South.

For avid walkers, Gairloch lies on the Western fringe of the "Wilderness," with Torridon to the South and Coigach and Assynt by Ullapool to the North. These regions boast some of Scotland's best mountains, including numerous Munros (mountains over 3,000 feet), offering a playground for rock climbers and walkers alike. On lower ground, the area presents picturesque walks around lochs and glens, offering panoramic views to the hills and across the sea to Skye.

Beyond walking, the region offers various activities such as watersports at Badachrobay and Sheildaig bay, fishing in the rivers (Ewe, Badachro, and Kerry), or salmon fishing in the Lochs. Cairns Cottage, in its idyllic setting, becomes the perfect base for those seeking to explore the natural wonders and outdoor activities that define the North West of Scotland.
