Overlooking Loch Achall on a private highland estate is Glastullich, a delightful detached cottage with stunning views.
Picture yourself relaxing in the comfort of the south-facing sunroom, watching the changing light down the glen in this unique Highland wilderness. 5 minutes’ walk takes you to Loch Achall where you are welcome to fish from the shore; your journey may see Red and Sika deer or eagles as you wander by the rare Caledonian pine trees.
The cottage features a bright open plan kitchen with lovey Aga and breakfast area, the joining sitting room with welcoming wood burning stove has deep comfortable sofas.
Through the sitting room is a double bedroom and spacious bathroom with sumptuous bath and generous shower. At the far end of the ground floor sits a twin bedroom with views to the mountains and next to a good sized shower room.
A latched door from the kitchen and stairs lead to a single bedroom with space for children to play board games or a cosy corner for reading. Outside there is a fenced garden for your dogs.
Rhidorroch's eight mile long private estate road runs through Glen Achall. Long and flat, this quiet route provides peaceful, easy walking for all, safe cycling for children and a great track for runners. Experienced bikers and more energetic walkers may take on the challenge over the eastward hill track to Oykel Bridge. With a distance of 16 miles you may wish to spend a night in the bothy by Loch Damph. The estate road also provides ready access for the walk in to Seanna Braigh, one of Scotland's most remote Munros.
Ullapool Hill network of paths can be reached by a short walk from Glastullich cottage. Look over the village towards Loch Broom and west to the Summer Isles; the top of the hill is a marvellous place to watch the sun set or the ferry coming and going to Lewis.
Glastullich with its remote charm is the perfect place to enjoy a holiday in the Scottish Highlands. You will not want to leave the magic and unspoiled beauty of this ancient landscape.
River fishing for salmon or deer stalking can be arranged.
