cyclists welcome

Caladh has open views, in a quiet setting, to one of the most beautiful vistas in the Highlands, across Upper Loch Torridon to the mountains beyond.

The situation, in Wester Alligin (Alligin Shuas) means it is easy to travel to other parts of the north west Highlands.

The house is in fully fenced grounds of an acre, including woodland behind, with hardwoods, conifers, rhododendrons, eucalyptus and a stone and timber 'retreat house'.

Caladh is ideally placed for walking, climbing, wildlife watching and exploring Wester Ross. It offers accommodation for 6 people downstairs, and a further 3 people can sleep upstairs.

Gaelic for 'The Haven', Caladh (pronounced Cala), is a modern bungalow with ample parking.

THE SETTING
The bungalow's enclosed garden has seats and picnic table. In addition, there is an adjoining one acre hillside plantation with a 'retreat house' (pictured here on the right).

From Caladh it is just 3 minutes walk by footpath to the beach. There is no road to the beach so you are assured of quiet.

The bungalow is situated on National Trust land and the neighbouring estate is a National Nature Reserve. There are visitor centres and a great variety of walks, on well marked tracks and over wild mountains.

THE AREA
Experienced hill walkers can enjoy the mountains of Torridon, Applecross and Wester Ross including Liathach, Beinn Eighe, Slioch and An Teallach. There are also many lower level easier walks including coastal paths. Kinlochewe on Loch Maree (16 miles from the cottage) is in the heart of the Beinn Eighe National Nature Reserve.
To the north, Gairloch has a golf course, beach, heritage museum, craft shops, bank, etc. Boat trips from there can show you dolphins, whales and sea birds. World-famous Inverewe Garden on the shores of Loch Ewe is open all year.
The pretty village of Shieldaig is just 13 miles south of the cottage and from there you can drive around the Applecross peninsula.
Sea angling, fishing, kayaking and pony trekking are just some of the other activities on offer in the region.
