This detached cottage is located in the village of Dundonnell and can sleep six people in three bedrooms.

Birch Cottage is a detached cottage in the village of Dundonnell just thirty miles from Ullapool. The cottage sleeps six people and has one ground floor double bedroom, one double and one single with a stacker bed together with a family shower room. Also in the cottage is a kitchen and a sitting room with woodburner and dining area. Outside is off road parking for two cars and a private enclosed front garden with patio. Situated in Wester Ross, Birch Cottage is a lovely family holiday cottage all year round.


We stayed at Birch cottage for a week, just 2 of us and our dog. We regularly have cottage holidays in the North West highlands but this was our first stay here. The cottage is lovely, very clean, well decorated and very well equipped. The views from the front are stunning and we passed a few hours just sitting at the dining table looking out the window. The beds were comfortable (great pillows!) as were the couches. We only had to light the woodburner on the first night as the weather was amazing the whole week. The cottage sits on a working croft, which we hadn't been aware of, but other than not being able to let the dog off lead this wasn't a problem, in fact the sheep and lambs right in front of the cottage were quite friendly and the lambs were hysterical to watch when they started bouncing around playing. One criticism, if it is that, the garden is not enclosed as stated in the description. I advised the owner that we were disappointed by this and she apologised and explained they are trying to buy the land round the cottage and will change the description to reflect this. If we had known the garden was not enclosed we would not have chosen this cottage, but it turned out fine so I'm glad we did. There is so much to do nearby, I would definately recommend Guinard Beach, particularly for a sunset if the weather is good. Also Red Point Beach. Food wise we didn't eat out much as we had our dog with us but I would very highly recommend the shellfish shack in Ullapool, the scallops and cullen skink were amazing. We would definately return to Birch cottage at some point if the garden gets fully enclosed, meanwhile I would recommend it to anyone who wants a comfortable cottage in a beautiful location.

The cottage was warm and welcoming, it had a real home from home feeling. It was well positioned for exploring the Highlands and it was positioned in a peaceful & tranquil location. We would recommend the cottage to family and friends.

The views from Birch Cottage are breathtaking, and ever changing. The woodburner was the perfect end to a long days walk in the hills! Will definitely be back!
Miss Tomlinson

Birch Cottage has a fantastic view. In an amazing area to explore. Friendly locals. A beautiful cottage & lovely touches from the owner to make us feel exceptionally welcome.
Mrs Melohn

This is an outstanding cottage and we didn't want to leave, the owner had added some lovely details as well which made us and our baby daughter feel very welcome, at home and comfortable. The cottage has stunning views and is well situated to visit the surrounding area. The log burner was particularly nice. We just loved everything!
