Fasgadh means shelter or haven in Gaelic. This one storey divided cottage has its own enclosed garden and is only a few minutes walk from the beautiful white sands of Big Sand beach near the pretty West Coast village of Gairloch. The 2 double bedrooms, the pretty bathroom and the well stocked kitchen are reached through a separate outside door, and have been tastefully furnished. One of the bedrooms boasts an open fireplace for those cooler nights.
Interested parties, please note: access to the lounge is by an outside door; and access to kitchen, bathroom and bedrooms is by a second outside door therefore you have to exit the cottage when moving from one to another. Both are only accessible from outside the cottage.
Enjoy the truly spectacular views of the Torridon hills and over the sea to Skye! On a clear day even far off Harris can be seen from the cottage. For location it can hardly be bettered. The cottage has a fresh and comfortable feel and one could gaze for hours out of the large picture windows in the good sized sitting room. It is located in traditional crofting community of Big Sand. The cottage is on an elevated position with southerly aspect commanding superb views of the Gairloch and Torridon hills and beach at Big Sand and has panoramic views over the sea to the islands of Rona, Raasay and Skye. On a clear day the Cuillin hills on Skye can be seen, over 40 miles away, and the lighthouse on Rona can be seen flashing from the settee in the living room.
The owner has thoughtfully left out a sketch book, a kite and a set of boules for the beach. Also, a pair of binoculars - vital for the wealth of wildlife to be seen: sea eagles wheeling, otters in the burn and basking sharks in the sea if you are lucky! To explore, bicycles can be hired and there is horse riding at nearby Flowerdale. In the village and near by: Golf course (9 holes), hotels, restaurants, coffee shop, award winning museum, pony trekking, beaches, hill and coastal walks, world famous Inverewe Gardens, cycle hire, loch and sea fishing, boat trips, leisure centre, small swimming pool in Poolewe, wildlife cruises (whale spotting, porpoises etc),Britain’s first national nature reserve at Beinn Eighe on Loch Maree.
