Comments from our Guest Book…

Lovely house
Lovely area. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you Andrew.

Outstanding location equipped with all the comforts and with much care and attention to detail. Easily accessible and stunning views from the house.

Well laid out property that certainly makes the most of the amazing mountains and views. When seating and chilling out staring at the view, it doesn’t matter what the weather might be like outside you will find yourself transfixed. If you never leave the property and spent your break indoors you would not feel cheated.

What an amazing place!
We absolutely adored the house which could hardly offer more. Very modern and comfortable place with stunning views. Nice area with many things to see. Next time we will book the whale watching tour earlier, we unfortunately missed it…


The most beautiful property we have had the pleasure to stay in, and we have stayed in many over the years!! The facilities and views could not be surpassed. Andrew the Owner could not have been more accommodating or helpful.

Beautifully modernised comfortable house with spectacular sea views, impeccably modernised, very comfortable, stunning views, perfect for a tranquil get-away.

We really enjoyed staying here. So relaxing to look out across the loch in such comfortable surroundings. Enjoyed the central location for visiting some of the stunning Wester Ross area. The house had everything we needed and the owners couldn’t have been more helpful. We would highly recommend this property.

One of our favorite places we’ve ever stayed, most notably due to the views from the cottage, which are are stunning at all hours. (Because it never really gets dark here in the summer, you can tiptoe out at 3 a.m. to admire the view in a magical twilight glow.) The hosts are charming and helpful, communication was excellent, and everything about the house itself is simply perfect. The surrounding area is low-key and wonderful for a family vacation, with plenty of kids’ activities (kayaking, pony trekking, endless hours of picking up dead sea creatures on the beach.) Our nine-year-old sons loved climbing on the rocky headlands beyond the cottage, and by the time we left, I think they knew every rock. One of them took to throwing his arms wide and shouting out to sea, “THIS IS THE BEST PLACE IN THE WORLD!!” He could be right.

Absolutely beautiful waterfront home
The house was just gorgeous, the views were phenomenal, the gardens and grounds were beautiful. Couldn’t recommend this enough. Will definitely be back. The owner Andrew was great and there for anything we needed.

Stunning modern clean property in fantastic location with outstanding views
Beautiful property with fantastic views. Interior splendidly clean, modern and stocked with all the right cooking utensils. Ground floor shower fantastic. Excellent location. Close to the “Old Inn” which is a wonderful cosy pub serving excellent fish pie. Also only 15 mins from the “Badachro Inn” which is in the most idyllic setting and serves a fabulous Cullen Skink. A marvellous holiday and will definitely be coming back.

This is a beautiful house in an absolutely breath taking part of Scotland and Andrew was an excellent host. Nothing beats waking up to those views, even in the middle of winter. The house was perfect for a cosy winter break, the facilities were excellent and Gairloch has plenty of amenities. Highly recommend and would happily stay again

The house of Andrew and Linsey is located in a scenery of outstanding beauty with amazing views to the sea just a stone’s through away and Harris & Lewis in the far distance. The house is thoughtfully laid out with a superb design tucked into an amazing garden with beautiful colors even in autumn. This place is definitely a hidden gem. Andrew’s communication has always been spot on and so beneficial. And not to forget in an amazing real time! We loved to stay longer than just 8 nights and definitely wish to come back.

A beautiful home with everything you need. Stunning location with amazing views. Andrew keeps in touch throughout the booking process. I’d definitely go again

We should have stayed longer! Shore cottage is located in an outstanding place. We enjoyed the wood burning oven, a lot of space, best beds (slept so well!) and these stunning views from the living room of the sea. And we loved all those beautiful walks and hikes in this fantastic area (a lot of things to do and to see…) What else should you know when booking Shore Cottage? Just do it! In reality it looks even better than on the fotos: even more space, even more views. And you should stay longer than we did (it was only four days). Important but almost unnecessary to say: everything was clean and in a perfect condition and communication with Andrew was always quick and easy

Really beautiful location. Deeply peaceful spot with wonderful views. The house has been thoughtfully laid out, everything made with care and quality. It is a pleasure to spend time there.

This is an amazing property in a stunning location. Shore Cottage has every amenity you could wish for and Gairloch is a charming village in the heart of a spectacular area of North West Scotland. We would wholeheartedly recommend this property – our only regret was that we did not book it for longer than 5 nights. We found it difficult to leave on the day of our departure!!

We left wanting to come back to this beautiful place. The house has stunning views wherever you sit, and it’s Scotland at its best. We have stayed in dozens of places and this one really impressed us. Outstanding!

This was a wonderful house situated right by the water. The view is wonderful and you could sit and watch seals in the bay either from the decking or the living room if the weather isn’t good. It is comfortable and very tastefully furnished and decorated I would recommend staying here.

We are a group of friends that travel up to Scotland each year to walk the Munros. Shore Cottage is in a idyllic location overlooking the bay. We saw porpoises, seals, and lots of bird life from the living room window. The house was spotless, well laid out and with good facilities. One of our walks was from the house, up to the Flowerdale waterfall, then beyond to complete a round trip of about 12km, ending up for a drink at the Old Mill pub. We also had a very good 2.5 hour trip with the Hebridean Whale Cruises and were fortunate to see a fair amount of Minke Whale activity. All in all, we had a very good week.

This place is absolutely flawless, such a beautiful place to relax with the family. It has superb amenities including the dishwasher and Apple TV with loads of movies too! The decking area is simply stunning this time of year as you can even sun bathe! The views are spectacular, we found ourselves welcoming each weather front which came in as we had front row seats. The lodge is immaculate, we will certainly be returning, thanks again Andrew!

We had a fantastic week at Shore Cottage. It is a beautiful house in a stunning location. We sat and watched seals, porpoises and otters swim past most days- no need to go on a boat trip! The surrounding area has excellent walks, scenic drives and amazing beaches. The location of the house feels secluded…but a handy shop and pub within a short walk mean it isn’t isolated at all. There’s loads to do (especially when the weather is good!) but one of the most enjoyable bits of our week was relaxing at the house on the comfy sofas or deck and watching the wildlife and sunsets on the loch. A fantastic place to stay 🙂

Beautiful and comfortable home with amazing views over the loch. We’re a family of five with teenagers and an eleven year old and the accommodation was spacious an welcoming. There are lovely short walks from the door and plenty of longer excursions to suit all nearby as well as good quality places to eat in the vicinity. Andrew was a great host with immediate responses to queries and clear directions and instructions to accompany our booking.

Look no further. The place itself is great – just like on the fotos. The area is great with good pubs, restaurants and shops for groceries. Ideal as a base for hikes and walks and with a beautiful beach just a few min walking distance.

Fantastic – clean, stylish, amazing location and super-helpful host.

Difficult to tell which one is more spectacular: the view or the cottage itself! You do not often find as perfect a combination of surroundings and accommodation. We were very impressed by the care and attention that has gone into this house. Gorgeous views throughout, a whole landscape of stylish yet comfy couches, that warm, wonderful wooden flooring throughout… and induction stove tops, no less! From the secluded cottage it’s just a quick walk down to the pier with cafe, sea trips and basic amenities, and a lovely riverside pub just beyond. What more to ask for?

Super spot with spectacular sea views. All mod cons excellent with TV Den for the kids. Very peaceful just sit back glass of wine and watch for the seals.

Think of what you hope to find when arriving on a cold, very wet December day ready for a Christmas week, bringing our family together. Shore Cottage was everything and more. Entering into a modern,warm, clean house with impressive furnishings, facilities and equipment levels. The log burner was quickly alight and contributing to the cosy atmosphere, with the effective central heating providing a supporting role. And the views…beat them if you can! We even saw an otter wander off the rocks in front of the house and swim past. Even more surprising was seeing an (the same?) otter walking along the pier road in the snow later that day! With rain turning to snow (and ice.. ) a fabulous time was had by all in a memorable house.

Shore Cottage is such a special place. The location and views are wonderful and there is so much to enjoy in the area. The house is beautifully presented, has comfy beds, is very cosy and is light, bright and modern. Andrew was a very thoughtful and kind host. We definitely plan to return.

What a beautiful house, every bit as good as the pictures look. Stunning views. The owners, Andrew and Lindsay were very helpful. We would love to go back.

We had a great week at Shore cottage, the perfect location to explore the area and a modern clean warm environment meant we were comfortable whatever the weather. The beds are super comfortable and the views are amazing. Everything was spotlessly clean and well appointed, including bed linen and towels etc. Highly recommend.

The location makes the experience – incredible shifting views of the water, coast and islands – but that should not detract from the fact that it’s a lovely and well maintained house too. Superb deck and sitting area with big windows. Very comfy beds too! A very happy stay for our family of six and we hope to return one day.

Beautiful location right by the shore. Well equipped. Didn’t go out for a coffee as it was much nicer to sit on the veranda. Spacious accommodation enabled youngsters to do their own thing while also being together for a family holiday.

Had a wonderful week at Shore Cottage. The house is really lovely and homely with everything of a high quality. Even when the west coast weather isn’t great the house is a great place to spend time with the floor to ceiling windows framing beautiful view of the bay. The wood burner is a nice touch when the evening are a bit chillier. Andrew was a great host, friendly and responsive. The house has everything we needed for a trip to Gairloch.

Lovely comfortable and well equipped house in magical secluded location on the edge of the loch. Regular sightings of seals and otters. Shop/post office, pub and boat trips a short walk away and other shops and amenities within a few minutes drive. Host very helpful. Highly recommended.

What can I say – perfect house at a perfect location. This is the location & level of interior decoration/styling you dream of. We didn’t do much, other than visit the beach on Red Point and the Gardens of Inverewe. Just relaxed, reading & looking over the sea. Andrew is a great host and thought of everything. You’ll have a great time here!

We’ve had a wonderful week at Shore Cottage. Its location is stunning, and its facilities are modern, clean and in excellent condition. The Cottage is spacious and light and despite it snowing regularly for the first couple of days we were lovely and warm. Andrew was a very helpful and generous host. We loved watching the seals (and porpoises on one occasion) from the living room and appreciated the binoculars in the cottage! Despite some unpredictable weather we enjoyed walks to Gairloch beach (just 20 mins from the cottage), Flowerdale Glen waterfalls, the Beinn Eighe mountain trail which has amazing fews onto the Torridon mountain range, a trip down to Torridon (with a stop for lunch at the Whistle Stop Cafe) and a coastal walk around the Red Point beaches. All of it was just beautiful! The two McColls shops in Gairloch are well stocked and there is a small shop and post office within a few minutes walk from the cottage which has a small selection of provisions. We would love to return and would have no hesitation in recommending this beautiful cottage!

We had the loveliest week at this beautiful house. The setting is amazing, the views from every window change continually with the tide and the weather. The house is gorgeous, lovely light and open living space and we loved the unique dining table and nice design touches. The location was ideal as a base to just wander and explore from the house to the nearby beaches, exploring Flowerdale falls or just sitting on the rocks and watching the sea. A really special and peaceful place.

Amazing property with great views over the water, we saw plenty of seals and beautiful starry nights. Beds where very comfy, hot water and heating was plentiful and kept us very cosy. There are 3 local stores and a good butchers within walking distance. Plenty of stunning coastline is within walking (or short driving) distance: Red Point, Mellon Udrigle, Slaggan Bay … Alternatively sit by the fire and look out the window.
