Set on the coast of Polbain overlooking the sea, Summer Isles and Minch, Gables Holiday Cottage Wester Ross is a stunning location in a wonderful environment. The Coigach Peninsula has been lived and worked for thousands of years - there are settlements here from Pictish and Viking influences, and there has been a crofting community working the land for generations. Our own family have been part of the community for many generations and we live and work here still today. Part of our work is offering visitors accommodation for them to come and share our lovely home and community and we take pride in providing a good quality and friendly service and reception that will make you want to return year after year. Rooms can be made up as twin single beds or one superking bed. The cottage is very cosy, with central heating and an open fire to enjoy. The views out to the Summer Isles and Torridon mountains are wonderful, or relax in the hammock in the large enclosed garden.
