Relax and unwind in this 18th-century shepherd’s cottage, set next to two miles of golden sand, perfect for a relaxing retreat.
Enjoying a superb, secluded setting with outstanding bay views, this sympathetically extended, 18th-century shepherd’s cottage is set next to 2 miles of golden sand; a turquoise blue sea with twisting otters and bobbing seals; the Cuillins of Skye on the horizon, with mountains, moorlands, and forests behind.

Attractively and most comfortably refurbished, Cruary has its own garden for sitting out in. The bedrooms and conservatory offer far-reaching views across the sea and to the Isle of Skye. This fantastic property offers a cosy hideaway for all seasons.

The village of Applecross itself is home to a couple of great restaurants, including a multi-award-winning restaurant serving fresh seafood dishes, as well as a Post Office/local store.

This property is in an excellent location for outdoor pursuits including hill-walking, climbing, kayaking, paddle boarding and cycling. Fishing and golf are also both within driving distance.

To the north of the Applecross Peninsula and with the backdrop of the rugged mountains of Liathach and Beinn Eighe, is an area coming under the care of the National Trust, mostly made up of 750-million-year-old red Torridonian sandstone. A Countryside Centre at Torridon village describes the local wildlife and the Ranger Service offers guided hikes along the Liathach massif or more strenuous walks traversing Beinn Eighe. On past Kinlochewe, the Beinn Eighe Visitor Centre stands as the UK’s oldest wildlife sanctuary, with parts of it clad in Caledonian pinewood, which once covered the whole of the country. A delight for nature lovers, the area is home to deer, pine martens, wildcats, badgers, and foxes as well as buzzards, sea eagles and golden eagles, in addition to a fine selection of flora.
