These holiday cottages have a secluded setting in scenic Scottish countryside on the banks of the River Ewe, very close to the village of Poolewe (about a mile away) in Ross-shire.
There are many well known places and Wester Ross attractions nearby including the famous Inverewe Tropical Gardens - within walking distance.
Guests at Croft Cottages can also walk along the riverbank or the shores of Loch Ewe / Loch Maree, or visit the Beinn Eighe Nature Reserve, the Torridon Nature Reserve or the sandy beaches in and around Gairloch.
Both properties have views of the mountains above Loch Maree and are perfect for climbers, walkers or anyone looking for a quiet and peaceful holiday. Fishing, golf courses and boat trips are all available locally.
The cottages are full of character, built of original stone, have been carefully restored and have good quality furnishings (with some antiques).
Cosy and comfortable, the stone-built cottages are semi-detached and each has a fenced garden area within several acres of private grounds, bordering the banks of the river Ewe with uninterrupted views of the mountains in the distance.

Location, Prices, Other Information
Crofter's Cottages are situated just above the south west shore of the River Ewe. At this point, the river gently flows between the meadows and woodland before it continues over rapids, then eventually under the bridge at Poolewe and out into Loch Ewe.
The village of Poolewe is an excellent base from which to tour Ross-shire and the Northern Highlands by car.
A short distance to the north lies the picturesque old fishing village and port of Ullapool, with ferry services to Stornoway.
