The ground floor has a kitchen/conservatory/dining area and a small snug. All the facilities and appliances to make a self-catering holiday as easy as possible. The steep narrow staircase that leads up to the bedrooms mean that this property might not suit some people. The bedrooms are in the eaves, there are bedroom chairs and chest of drawers but there are no wardrobes in the bedrooms.

Outside there is a new driveway with lots of parking, and a bench looking across the garden and onto the most fabulous views.

Tigh Acair is situated in the hamlet of Second Coast, about 1 mile before you reach Laide on the left side as you drive towards Laide and is approximately 1 hour 45 minutes from Inverness through very scenic route.

Local Area

They say the 'West is the Best', and on either a Stormy day when the waves are crashing on the beaches, the clouds rushing over the mountains, and the scenery is changing by the minute, or by contrast on a Sunny day the aqua blue water of the sea and the sandy beaches of Gruinard Bay this is a place that can deliver memories for years to come, it’s no wonder the west can definitely live up to it’s amazing reputation.

You are only a step away from the lovely sandy beach at Gruinard Bay and within easy walking distance to the local post office/shop/petrol station. Mellon Udrigle which is another stunning beach just 15 minutes by car from the cottage, both beaches ideal for launching a sea Kayak , or when the winds right some surfing or simply enjoying a picnic.

The world famous Inverewe Gardens and restaurant in Poolewe are a 20 minute drive away. Also within the local area is the new Arctic Convoy Museum and Oran na Mara a lovely coffee shop with amazing views over Aultbea and Mellon Charles which has a perfume studio and coffee shop.
