COVID -19   01/07/2020


The Scottish Governemnt has told us that we can open for holiday guests again on the 3rd July as long as the R value of covid remains under 1.  The disruption that coronavirus has had on society, life and business is hopefully slowly easing now but the government is still emphasising that proper social distancing is key to helping to suppress the chains of transmission of the virus and this situation is destined to go on for some time to come.


We are taking bookings again for all our properties from the 3rd July   with the provision that all booking deposits are returnable or can be used to book a later date should there be a second wave of the virus and Covid 19 regulations are brought back into play.  We are working to the governemnt guidelines for covid cleaning of self catering houses and will keep guests informed of the local COVID protocols in place nearer the time.  We really look forward to welcoming guests again at this beautiful, remote highland croft!

FIONNCROFT

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.
