COVID -19   

The disruption that coronavirus is having on society, life and business increases daily. The government thus far has been clear in emphasising how proper social distancing is key to helping to suppress the chains of transmission of the virus.

The latest guidance as of 10pm Sunday 22nd March is here:

The underlying advice being that people avoid travel whether for isolation purposes or holidays and remain in their primary residence.

As a result of this, and due to continuing extraordinary circumstances outside of our control, we have made the  difficult decision not to take any further bookings with an arrival date before 4th June 2020. We believe that continuing to do so would be against the spirit of strong government recommendation and may put the safety of our customers and resident communities  risk.

Alongside this, we are recommending that all customers due to arrive before June 4th defer their holiday to a later date in 2020 or 2021.   

**If you have booked one of our properties through an agency please contact them as we have nothing to do with their policy and cannot guarantee refunds of credits.

A working seaside croft in the tiny township of Melvaig, some nine miles from the bustling seaside village of Gairloch in Wester Ross.

Owners Fran & Chris extend a warm welcome to their self catering eco Lodge and cosy Shepherds Hut along with farm gate point of sale selling free range eggs, home produced pork and fresh, locally grown produce (in season). 

Melvaig is the last habitation on the road from Gairloch, Wester Ross,  out to Rubha Reidh Lighthouse and headland. The quiet Township is home to a scattering of working crofts, local homes & holiday houses. The nearest eatery is The Barn at Big Sands Camp site  six miles from Melvaig.

Take a trip out to Rubha Reidh, walk the three mile cliff top road from Melvaig to the Lighthouse or drive out on the narrow, privately maintained road, parking at one of the signed car parking areas at the end of the road.   View the lighthouse and take the spectacular walk along the north headland to Camus Mhor, a spectacular, remot,  sandy beach,  and Lochan Druing, home to white tailed eagles!

Beachcombing along the shore in Melvaig can prove fascinating or just sit staring out over the Minch to Skye and The Outer Hebrides.  For those wanting to get on the water there is a slipway in Melvaig for launching. When the weather allows the sunsets are spectacular and you may even catch sight of a passing whale, dolphin, or even an otter playing in the shallows.

Gairloch is a large village with a bank,golf course, boat trips, shops, restaurants and hotels, a museum, leisure centre and health centre.  Poolewe, three miles beyond Gairloch has a swimming pool and is home to the famous Inverewe Gardens.
