Mellon Charles, Scottish Highlands, Scotland
Shore Croft was built to take full advantage of its unique situation, facing south above a pebbly beach on Loch Ewe, with panoramic views of the sea. The garden which is over an acre opens directly onto the beach and has several wildlife viewing points. The whole interior is beautifully designed, arranged and maintained. It is light, modern and luxurious. The sitting room and dining room/kitchen open onto wide decking from which a path leads to the garden gate which opens almost directly on to the beach. The house is extremely well equipped with an open fire in the sitting room. There are 4 bedrooms. A master bedroom with an en suite wet room and 3 twin bedrooms. There is a full bathroom / wet room upstairs as well as a downstairs loo. The kitchen / dining room is extremely large and very well equipped with a large modern range cooker and... Read more

We're just back from having a wonderful two weeks down in Mellon Charles. This house has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The kichen is very well equipped, there's a barbecue and decking to make the most of the outdoors, a telescope for wildlife viewing, a super drying room, and views to keep you sane for a few months....

Having holidayed in the Poolewe and Gairloch area from year dot, we rarely need an excuse to visit again. However if a reason was needed, just walk out of the door at Shorecroft onto the decking and be greeted by a panorama that is unmatched anywhere in the world. it is just one of a plethora of views in the...

About the neighborhood
As well as easily viewed landscapes of Wester Ross, Gairloch and Aultbea also has some of the most remote and wild (and roadless) land in all of the UK, notably north and west of Loch Maree

Aside from the impact of the landscape, there is also plenty to see. There are gardens at Attadale near Lochcarron, while Inverewe, north of Gairloch, has been a place of pilgrimage for generations of gardeners who come to wonder at the range of tender species which thrive in the mild climate. The human story of the area is told in museums such as the Smithy Heritage Centre in Lochcarron, the Gairloch Heritage Museum and the Ullapool Museum and Visitor Centre

Things to do in the area include (obviously) walking and climbing, with the Torridon Countryside Centre (NTS) or Scottish Natural Heritage's...
