A STUNNING

LOCATION

The Peatcutter's Croft is set in a remote and traditional crofting township with stunning mountain views across beautiful Little Loch Broom to An Teallach and Sail Mhor. We are 45 minutes from Ullapool on the Dundonnell estate, just off the North Coast 500 and an hour or so from Inverness.

   With only 15 full-time residents, Badrallach is a real 'get away from it all' place, with a small but vibrant community, where sheep and humans share the road and life is governed by the seasons. You can come to escape the world or choose Badrallach as a beautiful base to explore the west coast, with day trips to Durness or Gairloch easily achievable.

SCORAIG

On our doorstep

A six-mile coastal path takes you to Scoraig, a unique off-grid community only accessible by foot or boat. We love the walk with its expansive loch side views, the tiny lighthouse museum and tea and cake in the occasional cafe run by Lisa.

ULLAPOOL

A short drive away // 45 minutes

The traditional fishing village punches well above its size with festivals throughout the year, great fish and chips and an interesting variety of artistic and culinary makers and creators to choose from. 

SMOO CAVE

Day trip

This large combined sea cave and freshwater cave in Durness in Sutherland can be explored by boat or by the path from the car park on the cliffs. It's an impressive sight at one of the most remote  edges of Scotland.

ARDESSIE FALLS

On our doorstep

Directly across the loch you'll find a short, steep walk alongside the Allt Airdeasaidh to view the impressive Ardessie waterfalls. With huge pools to swim in, beautiful views across Little Loch Broom and giant sandstone shelves to picnic on, it's a must.

GAIRLOCH MUSEUM

A short drive away // 60 minutes

The museum takes you on a journey through time showing how local people lived and worked in Gairloch through the ages. Great for anyone researching family history, the area's interesting geology or crofting life.

ARDVRECK CASTLE

Day trip

This ruined castle was built by the Macleod Clan in a defensive move during the fifteenth century on the shores of Loch Assynt. Its situation and nearby Calda House make for fabulous photograph stop on the way north to Lochinver.

AN TEALLACH

On our doorstep

An Teallach rises above Little Loch Broom, its terraced sides riven with steep gullies and a sharp rocky summit crest at Sgùrr Fiona. The steepest section, known as Corrag Corrag Bhuidhe, features the spectacular overhanging pinnacle Lord Berkeley's Seat.

MELLON UDRIGLE

A short drive away // 45 minutes

Named one of the Highlands' Top Ten beaches, Mellon Udrigle is a favourite spot just down the coast.. With stunning white gold sand and breathtaking views, it's great at any time of year.

ACHILTIBUIE LOOP

Day trip

The road to Achiltibuie is an impressive one: strangely shaped mountains rise from the drowned landscape as the single track road winds its way to the sea, with its view of the Summer Isles. Oh, and there's great fish and chips or seafood when you get there!
