My husband and I had such a memorable two weeks holiday in this wonderful traditional property that I hardly know where to begin!
The owners; Murdo and Christine(Kirsty) could not have been more helpful, and were more than generous with any advice we needed on things we could do during our stay.
The cottage itself was very clean, well maintained and well equipped with all modern conveniences,(Large flat screen TV and DVD, Good Sound system for CDs,Good efficient Cooker, Fridge, Freezer, Washing Machine, Microwave.) and was very comfortable, and the open fire was an absolute delight!(Free coal supplied) Along with that, the central heating was very efficient and so the house was warm and cosy at all times.
The cottage stands alone and is located at the very end of the Diabaig road with no other properties in the surrounding area, and so is very private with wonderful views and access to the heather clad hills and some wonderful walking are literally just outside the back door! For serious walkers the Torridon mountains are 15 to 20 minutes away by car.
Fishing for brown trout on the lochs is free,(boat hire is available on some), and sea fishing on the pier produces mackerel and pollock. Wildlife is abundant and we saw deer very close to the back of the house on a number of occasions.
We found the local people very friendly and helpful and any fellow visitors we spoke to were, like us , enjoying a wonderful stay in Diabaig We would certainly return to Bealach; A True Highland Experience!

A truly delightful cottage, with very good and comfortable accomodation, and a fantastic, peaceful location looking out over the sea loch below. Everything you could want is provided for a comfortable and memorable stay. Great walking in the Torridon mountains and wildlife: Red-throated Divers in the bay and the lochans in land, along with Golden Eagles, Merlin, Peregrine, Greenshank and Ptarmagan.
