Gracie's Cottage is situated virtually on the sea shore. The single track road, which runs between the cottage and the shore, is a cul de sac, leading only to the rest of the village. There is plenty of space inside and outside and the sea is safe for children, being very shallow in front of the cottage. Plenty of car parking space. Pleasant sunny garden in front, and another garden to the rear. There are numerous places to walk, without needing to get into a car, and plenty of opportunities to see local wildlife from the cottage including numerous shore birds and sometimes otters and seals. The shop and Seafood Cafe in Kishorn are within walking distance (approx. a mile). An excellent local cook can normally deliver delicious ready meals if required.

Short Breaks

Gracie's Cottage is sometimes available for Short Breaks of 3 nights (minimum), or longer. Rates vary but, as a rough guide, a 3 night stay works out at just over two thirds of the weekly rate for the time of year. Flying to Inverness with (say) Easyjet, and hiring a car, makes this a very cost effective way of enjoying a long weekend amid glorious scenery and in a peaceful and tranquil environment.
