About the neighbourhood
Wester Ross offers stunning coastal and mountain scenery. The bus from Inverness stops close to the house. Inverness with its main train station and airport is an hour and a half away. The stunning mountains of Torridon and the wilderness of Letterewe offer countless opportunities for walking and climbing. There are lots of activities and amenities available in walking distance from the house- swimming beach, golf course, boat trips, fishing, local walks, pony trekking, shops and an award winning local Inn. Or just sit and relax on our terraced decked garden and watch the odd boat head out over the sea to Skye.
