“Fabulous house in a fabulous setting.”

Second time round still excellent.
Imagine staying somewhere where you can phone and get a fresh catch of prawns five minutes walk away and then BBQ them in your back garden before taking a plunge in the hot tub. This is truly a heaven in the most incredible setting.

“Great house, great location”

Fabulous house with nice big windows and loads of space, and with fabulous views. Obviously there is very little that the owners have not considered on behalf of their guests. We were delighted with the unexpected 'goodies' on arrival - what a treat - thank you so much!! We would recommend this property to anyone.
It has been several years since we last visited this area of Scotland, and it was nice to re-acquaint ourselves with the landscape, views and walks. For eating out, needless to say that The Seaforth is very popular, with good food and beer, and helpful staff. For something different try the Waterfront bar at the Royal Hotel, which offers good simple food with good value for money (& and excellent range of numerous whiskies). Finally, try the Lochinver Deli (aka The Pie Shop) - pies 'to die for'!

Amazing house ! Stunning location & wonderful attentive owners with great attention to detail.

We have spent a wonderful relaxing week at this totally beautiful house, which we cannot fault in any way. The owners were so kind and helpful and left us a welcome food & wine gift, not to mention the beautiful flowers. All these special little touches went into making our holiday one of our best ever. We will definitely be booking again. The best house by far !

Ardmair Bay House was simply perfect. A brightly lit, modern, warm and tastefully decorated holiday home, that more than fulfilled our expectations. The owner Alison was incredibly helpful, friendly and efficient. I would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone.

A fantastic property in a great location. Everything about the property, facilities, fixtures and fittings and welcome pack exude quality.
Very spacious accommodation with a well thought out layout.
We've stayed in many good quality holiday homes and this overall is certainly the top of the list.
The only negative I would have is the condition of the shared driveway, you need to take it steady to avoid pot holes, etc. But in a strange way this almost adds to the remoteness of the property and holiday experience.
Just book it - you won't be disappointed.

Ardmair Bay House is set in a stunning location overlooking Ardmair Bay. The house is beautifully fitted out. Will certainly be looking to return in the near future. Excellent location for fishing and walking (especially the Coigach and Assynt mountains). Had a great trip on rib boat out tot he Summer Isles - saw seals, birds etc. Greta holiday enjoyed by all.

“Unique and wonderful house/ location!”
Reviewed August 14, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The website pictures led us to believe that Ardmair Bay House was everything we were hoping for. The truth is that our vacation was so much better than what we had expected because of the house and its unique location.
The house offers generous accommodation for eight people and plenty of space to spend time together or apart. The main reason is that the spacious kitchen, living room and game room are all separated from each other giving the possibility for one to find any peace and quite when necessary. The house is very luxurious with bathrobes and slippers available for each guest while in the kitchen there is an entire service of Highland Stoneware pottery. What we all rated highly was the quality of the beds: top mattresses and very soft cotton bedsheets. The views over the Ardmair Bay are to die for no matter which time of the day, but especially stunning at sunrise and sunset. The hot tub was used most days come rain or shine!
The house is ideally located for 1-day excursions in the area (Applecross, Torridon, Inverewe Gardens, Gairloch beaches, Lochinver, the Old Man of Stoer, Drumbeg and its rugged coast, the Summer Isles, the Rogie Falls and its salmon ladders, and many more. More locally, Knockan Crag is really worth a visit and a walk around as well as the Rhue Art Gallery. Based in Ullapool, the Seascape Expedition company offers amazing trips for close encounters with seals and seabirds. Slightly further South, the Corriesshalloch Gorge is not for the faint hearted.
Food wise, with prior booking, the local fisherman (phone number available in the house) is more than happy to bring you bags of fresh langoustines (some of them still alive) and squat lobster tails (a.k.a ‘spinies' locally) with their very delicate and sweet taste. A real gem in the area is the Seafood Shack in Ullapool with some exquisite but simple dishes: Tempura Haddock Wrap with Salad, Lemon Mayo and Pesto; Cullen Skink; Spiney Popcorns; King Scallops on a bed of Couscous, to name but a few. You just cannot go wrong. The Walled Garden in Applecross, Peet’s restaurant and the Pie Shop in Lochinver are also really worth a stop.
Although the weather could have been better, the contrast of light, clouds and landscape made for unforgettable views and scenery which required many, many stops along the way (plan sufficient time for stops).
Our party of 7 hold vivid and unique memories of our 1 week stay at Ardmair Bay House. We recommend it very highly!!
