Accommodation in Applecross, Scotland


Shell Cottage (B&B) .and The Birdhouse (self-catering cottage)

We warmly welcome you to Applecross with a choice of luxury self-catering cottage and beautiful Bed and Breakfast accommodation.  Great for short visits or leisurely holidays. 

Shell Cottage and the Birdhouse sit in the heart of the quiet west coast hamlet of Culduie in the Highlands of Scotland.  Just 2 miles from the famous Applecross Inn, the single-track road winds past tiny villages, with glorious sea and mountain views at every turn.

Culduie is perhaps most famous as the setting of the Man Booker Prize short-listed book ‘His Bloody Project’ written by Graeme MacRae Burnet.

Our two cottages are converted from an original croft house and byre.  They have been extended and modernised, creating comfort and personality, with en suite facilities and luxurious linens.  The unique interiors are a mix of quirky collections, antique furniture and family heirlooms, combined with modern day comforts.  

Shell Cottage (B&B) has two bedrooms with king-sized beds, tea and coffee facilities, ensuite shower rooms with WC and washbasin.

The Birdhouse (self catering) sleeps 2.  It has a stunning living/dining/kitchen. a separate bedroom with king-sized bed and large ensuite shower room.

Enjoy the spectacular sunsets and views across the sea to the Isles of Skye and Raasay.  And watch out for the Northern Lights (aurora borealis) on a clear and starry night.

I think this is one of the best accommodation I have ever found. The house is located in a position with a great view and it is so beautiful: the decoration, the style, the atmosphere. Could not recommend this accommodation enough!
