Charming 2 bedroom house overlooking sea and Summer Isles. Gorgeous bubbling burn next to House with dipping pool. Small walk down the croft to beach. Walking distance to pub and Summer Isles Hotel with famous


The space

The Steading has stunning views of the Summer Isles from the combined sitting room and kitchen. You can enjoy your meals in the Sun Porch . A favourite spot of mine is the Sun Porch's window seat, here you can put your feet up , relax and enjoy the view. The Steadings rooms are all on the ground floor, no stairs to deal with, just one step into the sun porch and one step into the hallway of the Steading.
The Steading sleeps 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children comfortably, 1 double bedroom with en suite; the second bedroom has two twin beds in a non traditional bunk style as you will see from the pictures, there is also a wee sink in this bedroom. There is a separate bathroom with toilet, sink and bathtub and hand shower fixture. The Kitchen/Sitting room has everything you need in a cosy space, with patio doors that open onto a stone veranda again to enjoy views of the sea.

Guest access

Guests will have access to the garden alongside the burn. Please be especially careful walking along the burn, there are places where it passes through a small ravine, and you are there at your own risk. The parking spot is yours above the Steading. You can walk to the sea, the mountains, the shop and the hotel from the house.

Warm and comfortable with stunning views of the Summer Isles. We loved every minute and had some great sleeps. Jo was a very pleasant host who left us to our own devices but was there when we needed anything. The steading is well equipped with board games and books for rainy days - we had a few! Hope to visit again.

Jo’s place is beautifully set in a series of small terraced gardens on a slope overlooking Horse Island. We found the accommodation ideal as a self-catering couple. The porch has a dining table with fabulous views out to sea, a great place to have breakfast. Recommended walk – up Sgurr an Fhidhleir from Culnacraig, just down the road, taking in either the Ben More Coigach ridge, or Beinn nan Caorach (or both if you have time). Amazing views of the Coigach peaks, and way beyond, on a clear day. Jo was a friendly and welcoming host. Don’t miss seeing her amazing tapestries at the Coigach Community Hall.

Wonderful place to stay and excellent views of the summer isles. Plenty of room for two people and Jo was non-intrusive but very welcoming.

It was alltogether very cosy, very warm-since the weather was fairly ugly- and very well and artistically situated. Jo is a wonderful person with lots of interests. We coped extremely well with her and all the circumstances described below. Lovely garden with paths and, waterfall and stream from the mountains. Very energetic spot. Thanks a lot,we ll have everything in our hearts, specially you!

Perfect spot for coastal walks. A great view from the cottage over the sea and islands. Interesting creative garden to explore. We loved the window seat in the conservatory. Friendly and welcoming host but not intrusive, plenty of privacy.

This is a very dangerous place as it breaks your heart when you have to leave; it was one of our best holidays ever. The cottage was spacious for us as a couple, but up to two children as well wouldn't be a problem. Very comfortable and nice sitting room that is also the kitchen, with a romantic wood-burning stove and excellent views, although our favourite place was the porch where you could see all the birds and rabbits in front, as well as the deer grazing further down the slope. Beautiful walks are possible directly from the cottage, the important only shop and the beaches can be reached by bike, no need to take the car. A place serving excellent sea food is very close, as well as a little cooperative gallery run by local artists. Jo, the host, is a lovely lady who lives next door and will help with anything without being intrusive in any way. We absolutely loved it hee, it is such a magical place.
