Welcome to Gracie's Cottage
Sorry, but Gracie's Cottage is not available for holidays in 2021. Instead, we are offering longer-term lets for at least 6 months. This will overcome the COVID 19 risks associated with weekly changeovers. If you would be interested in getting away for a long period, please get in touch.
Gracie's Cottage is a traditional stone built cottage, situated virtually on the sea shore, with a magnificent outlook across the sea to the Applecross hills and the famous Bealach-na-Ba (Pass of the Cattle). The building has been restored to a high standard, retaining many original features, has central heating throughout and offers the following comfortable accommodation for up to four people.

Gracie's Cottage is situated virtually on the sea shore. The single track road, which runs between the cottage and the shore, is a cul de sac, leading only to the rest of the village. There is plenty of space inside and outside and the sea is safe for children, being very shallow in front of the cottage. Plenty of car parking space. Pleasant sunny garden in front, and another garden to the rear. There are numerous places to walk, without needing to get into a car, and plenty of opportunities to see local wildlife from the cottage including numerous shore birds and sometimes otters and seals. The shop and Seafood Cafe in Kishorn are within walking distance (approx. a mile). An excellent local cook can normally deliver delicious ready meals if required.
Weekly Rents for Gracie's Cottage 2020
(Friday to Friday)
Rent includes all electricity, central heating, cotton bed linen, towels, free WiFi, free calls to most UK landlines, and an initial basket of logs. Sorry, no pets.
Gracie's Cottage is sometimes available for Short Breaks of 3 nights (minimum), or longer. Rates vary but, as a rough guide, a 3 night stay works out at just over two thirds of the weekly rate for the time of year. Flying to Inverness with (say) Easyjet, and hiring a car, makes this a very cost effective way of enjoying a long weekend amid glorious scenery and in a peaceful and tranquil environment.
