Located on the remote peninsula of Applecross, Pier Cottage is a home made for holidaying in; quiet & off the beaten track with ever changing views out over the waters of the Inner Sound and across to the Island of Skye.
Located on the old jetty at Camusterrach, Pier Cottage is a holiday escape for those who wish to unwind to the slow rhythms of the sea and rural life.
Sheltered from the ravages of the northerly winds by an outcrop of coastal rock, the cottage nestles on a sunny grassy shore above the rocky beach. Pier Cottage is the ideal venue for Canoeing & Sea Kayaking; Otter & Bird Watching and Coastal Walks. The Bealach & Torridon are close enough for that classic Scottish Mountaineering day.
For those wishing more of a Rest & Contemplative escape you will find yourself transfixed in a window seat, watching out for wildlife, the sheep wandering outside; the otter feeding in the kelp; listening to the roar of the deer on the hillside opposite. Relax and sample the excellent seafood landed locally.
Applecross has a wealth of way-marked coastal & woodland walks with a favorite walk from the Cottage along the coast to Ard-dhubh and over to Coral Beach.
Everything at hand is at hand in this fragile community and with a little investigation you can purchase direct from local producers Prawns & Shellfish landed daily; Croft grown vegetables; and even freshly baked breads.
Of course for those who wish to eat out there is the famous Applecross Inn, award winning Potting Shed at the Walled Garden and The Broch Bar at the campsite; providing some of the best seafood & local baking all with outside sitting areas and wonderful views.
Like us your first visit to Applecross will not be your last. And like us we know that you will be drawn back time and time again.
