Welcome to Pier Cottage, Applecross

Simple cottage in a spectacular setting on the West Coast of Scotland

Located on the peninsula of Applecross, Pier Cottage is a traditional west coast home made for holidaying in. This self-catering Coastal cottage has ever changing views across the water to the Island of Skye. A venue for many a fun filled Family holiday, a Romantic get-a-way for Honeymooners or a base for exploration. Pier Cottage is cosy and dog friendly.

Stunning self catering cottage holiday escape

Located on the old jetty at Camusterrach, Pier Cottage is quiet and off the beaten track, for those who wish a holiday escape to unwind and experience the slow rhythms of the sea and rural life. The cottage is remote but has modern conveniences, for those who still need WiFi the cottage is connected to Applenet Community Broadband that is open and free to use.

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 Mountains are close enough for that classic Scottish Mountaineering day.

Back to nature

Applecross has a wealth of way-marked coastal & woodland walks with our favorite walk from the Cottage along the coast to Ard-dhubh and over to Coral Beach. The stunning Sand beach is 6 miles North up the coast towards Torridon. The local Shop & Post Office stocks everything you will need for a weeks holiday.

Feed your imagination

Locally landed Seafood should be sampled. To eat out there is the famously friendly Applecross Inn and award winning Potting Shed set in the tranquil Walled Garden and The Campsite Broch Bar with the Flower tunnel; each providing some excellent seafood & local produce and baking, all three have outside sitting areas and wonderful views.

It‘s hard to leave

Like us, your first visit to Applecross will not be your last.
