"Gaze up at stunning star-filled skies by night and let birdsong wake you in the morning”
Welcome to The Peatcutter’s Croft, a 150-year-old croft house on the hill above Little Loch Broom. Set in 11 acres of working croft land, it nestles on the foothills of Beinn Goblach and has uninterrupted views across to the imposing peaks of An Teallach and down to the shimmering loch below.
Our stylish bed and breakfast apartment is the perfect get-away-from-it-all destination all year round. Just over an hour’s drive from Inverness or 40 minutes from Ullapool, we are situated at the end of an 8-mile single-track road.
This remote but accessible location makes The Peatcutter’s Croft the perfect retreat for lovers, adventurers or families looking for a slice of contemporary Scottish life.
Our tastefully-furnished apartment has its own front door so you can come and go as you please, making it the perfect base for taking it easy or enjoying the rich outdoor pursuits the area is so famous for. We can also cook a delicious meal of locally-sourced and homegrown produce for you to come home to.
Just a short stroll across the fields is the house's own rocky beach where you can sit in perfect solitude on the rocks and watch for porpoises or fish for fresh mackerel to grill on the Rayburn. The more adventurous can scale one of the area’s 22 Munros or cycle along the footpath to the pioneering Scoraig community at the tip of the peninsula. When the day’s over you can luxuriate in front of the apartment’s toasty peat fire.
Come to enjoy the good life at Peatcutter’s Croft and discover the beauty of Badrallach.
“Ooh, it's a G-plan cave, a cool blend of rough whitewashed stone and glass. Beside a Norwegian Jotul woodburner are baskets of peat and logs. A Vitra chair by Mario Bellini is covered by a sheepskin throw and sits invitingly beside shelves bearing Scottish titles.”

"My favourite place is Badrallach, a hamlet on the northwest coast of Scotland, and a place where - come drizzle, sunshine or fog - I spent every summer holiday during my childhood. It's also, mystifyingly, deserted. Even in August, the mountainous soft-purple coast is one of the most beautiful and unpopulated places I've ever visited ..."
