Lochend Cottage - Appleross
Enjoy a beautiful Highland Cottage near a tranquil Scottish Loch
Lochend is a detached highland cottage which was originally built for an Applecross estate worker. It sits beside Loch a’ Mhuilinn which is well known for its rare flora and fauna including many rare orchids. This quaint Scottish cottage is set in a secluded spot by a small loch and only a half mile walk to the golden sandy beach at Applecross.
This cosy secluded cottage for two offers uninterrupted views across the Sound to the islands of Raasay, Rona and Skye beyond. Lochend has its own secure garden which backs onto open hill-side, it is just half a mile to Applecross with a hotel renowned for its excellent food, and a beautiful beach perfect for swimming, fishing or just relaxing. There are some amazing walks along this beautiful coast; eagles, eider duck, mergansers and sea-birds can be seen in the bays, as well as seals and otters.
The cottage has its own garden surrounded by a wall; as it is completely on its own Lochend gives you maximum peace and tranquility. In the winter months there are always Whooper swans on the loch they have come down from Greenland & the far North to spend the winter in Applecross. In the garden there is a nice private patio area with sun loungers if you are a worshipper of the sun. There is also a teak table and bench so that you can sit out and enjoy an “al fresco meal” while watching the sunsets.
Remember that as we are so far north, the summer days are long and the nights are short. As the cottage is situated on croft land there are usually sheep around and you should see red deer behind the cottage and as you walk out of the cottage gate you can take the foot path up to the higher ground.
