A cosy and romantic self-catering holiday cottage set in the Highlands of Scotland on the remote West Coast. The location is spectacular with stunning far reaching views over the sea Loch of Torridon and over towards the mountains of Beinn Alligin, Liathach and Beinn Eighe. The cottage sleeps 5 (ideally suited for 4 adults and 1 child) in 3 bedrooms and provides an ideal base for outdoor activities.

Floras House stands on its own behind the other houses in the township, in a private elevated position on the hillside. An old stone bridge and track leads up to the cottage. The track is fine to drive on with most family cars – however please be careful when driving in dark and wet conditions, as it does get muddy. There is ample space for parking your car adjacent to the garden gate.

Kenmore is a sheep farming community & the cottage stands amid the communal grazing grounds. The Applecross Peninsula only became accessible to road traffic in the mid 1970s. Prior to that, the small coastal communities could only be reached by sea. Although single track roads now run around the edge of the Peninsula, it remains one of the most unspoilt areas in Scotland.

The cottage had a small fenced off front garden and there is a patio with a picnic table ideal for eating outdoors. The open fire in the sitting room and the wood burning stove in the dining area are welcome after a days challenging walks. Upstairs in the cottage there are three bedrooms, sleeping five people (4 adults and 1 child).

This cosy rural cottage is warm and well equipped; the kitchen has a built in electric oven, ceramic hob, fridge, freezer, toaster, slow cooker, microwave, electric kettle and a stainless steel sink unit. There is a full range of cutlery, crockery and cooking utensils in the cupboards.

The sitting room has a window seat taking full advantage of the panoramic views and is comfortably furnished with a sofa, two chairs and a T.V. with Digi box. There is a Baxi grate fire with a back boiler which will supply hot water and there is an electric immersion heater as well for back up. The dining area has seating for six at its yew dining table, it is a warm room with a wood burning stove.

One bathroom is down stairs and has a full sized bath, washbasin, w.c and heated towel rail.

Upstairs there is a charming light and airy twin bedroom. There is one double bedroom which has an en-suite bathroom. (The very small single bedroom is accessed through the double bedroom). Additionally there is a fold away travel cot in the small store room.

Within the shelter of the two porches at the front of the cottage there is a paved patio area with picnic table - so visitors can enjoy alfresco meals. To the side of the cottage is a small grass area with enough room for a couple of deck chairs to be erected in order to take in the glorious views.

The Torridon-Applecross region is well known for having breath taking colours and scenery, ideal for walking, sea and fresh water fishing, climbing, bird watching. Shieldaig is 7 miles by road and has two grocery stores and a licensed hotel. Applecross is a wonderful 15 miles drive along the coastal road with fantastic views, where you will also find a pub, petrol station and excellent places to eat.
