The Cottages
Opened in 2023, these newly built properties have been designed to reflect the character and culture of the traditional bothy and black houses that have populated the highlands for centuries, we have made every effort to make these properties as welcoming and comfortable as can be.

The utility room entry offers a washing machine, tumble dryer, and a fridge freezer. The bathroom has a luxurious walk-in shower, washbasin, toilet, and bath. The main space is an open plan, divided between a living area with a comfy sofa, table, and TV, a fully fitted bespoke kitchen that offers an induction hob and oven, a microwave, a traditional basin, and a working area. Set back and divided from the living area, a large comfortable kingsize bed, bedside cabinets, tv and lights offer a quiet peaceful sleep along with a selection of Scottish books and literature for all tastes.


The Wreck and Ruin are individual properties that cater to couples solo travellers or can be booked in conjunction. Both properties offer parking for up to two cars each. We have a bike store available and firepits/bbq facilities. We look forward to welcoming you to a special wee part of Scotland.

These properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 4 guests.
The location
Set on the shores of Loch Broom, just outside the picturesque Highland fishing village of Ullapool. The wreck and ruin offers a quiet, high-end secluded break Set on a working croft, the stone walls and turf roofing offer an experience of traditional Highland life in a luxurious comfortable setting.

Views of sea birds, dolphins, seals, and sea eagles, beach walks, and Summer Isle sunsets make this a special destination. 

Seating is located just above the shoreline where visitors can sit and watch the abundant marine life of the Wester Ross Marine Protected Area.  Watch working fishing boats out at sea and the ferry passing as it sails for the Hebrides from Ullapool.

Why not try your hand at some cast fishing or take a dip wild swimming in the clean seas of Loch Broom.

We are just one mile outside of Ullapool and its thriving local shops, cafés, bars, and restaurants.   We are set just off the NC500 and offer an ideal base for exploring the northwest Highlands.   You can take boat trips to the Summer Isles, trips to the Outer Hebrides - or simply relax in the peace, seclusion, and tranquillity that the property was designed to allow.  Experience the beauty of the loch Broom, it's surrounding mountains and stunning panoramic views.
