Where do I start? It's been 10 years since we visited this beautiful part of Scotland and the area did not disappoint. There is something magical about Loch Ewe and surrounding beaches and villages and Shore Croft was an amazing place to stay. The house is beautifully decorated with everything you need for a comfortable stay with it's own private beach. Everything has been thought of at Shore Croft to make your stay as comfortable as possible even down to providing a bed for the dog. Fantastic week and the weather was great. We can't wait to return.
The house is beautifully constructed, has all the facilities that you're likely to need, and is situated in a beautiful location with fantastic countryside and a beach right on the doorstep. The high-quality bikes available for hire at the house enable you easily to go biking in the stunning nearby mountains. There is shopping, cafe, pub, etc. in the nearby village and we never lacked anything. This is a wonderful, restful place to spend time chilling out.
Shore Croft is a very warm, welcoming (and well insulated) property, it offers 5 star accommodation in a stunning location.
The four spacious bedrooms have comfortable beds and are tastefully furnished and decorated. The bathrooms were spacious and modern and the underfloor heating was a treat!
The lounge felt very homely, again with very tasteful decorations and furnishings. The kitchen / dining area was bright and modern and spacious. The large utility room was also well used!
Outside is access to the pebbly beach, outdoor seating areas and fire pit, don't get too cosy inside, get wrapped up and go and watch the shooting stars.
The most refreshing thing about Shore Croft was the lack of signs, there's nothing worse than being told "don't touch this, don't touch that", everything was neatly provided in a welcome pack and instruction books.
Shore Croft provides everything you need, including spare light bulbs, picnic blankets, outdoor wine glasses, herbs and spices, the list is endless! Not once did we say "they haven't provided.....".
The cleanliness was immaculate, top marks to the housekeeper, she keeps the place looking brand new!
The quality of the towels, bedding, soaps, crockery, cutlery etc was brilliant (I'm now a big fan of The White Company)!
Shore Croft...we miss you already and can't wait to come back.
Thank you for a wonderful week.
Shore Croft proved to be a wonderful home from home. Easy to live in - stylish spacious rooms with comfy places to sit and admire the view or just relax. Well-equipped with thoughtful and generous touches. Stress - free and restful. Just lovely.
We had a fantastic wild and windy week cocooned in comfort in this delightful house, which is even better than the photos can convey. From the moment we walked through the front door we felt at home. Warm central heating, with the added bonus of an open fire, was complemented by cosy sofas, comfortable beds and a very well-equipped kitchen. The personal touches in every room made it a joyful place to spend time.
During our week in early January we had wild winds, sleet and snow, but the weather is so changeable that we always managed to get out for a wonderfully invigorating walk each day.
The local fisherman delivered live langoustines he had caught that day - you can't get fresher than that! And the local store had all the basics we needed. We also had lunch at the Oran-na-mara cafe in Aultbea, although most of the other places were closed at that time of the year.
We really loved our winter holiday and hope to return at another time to experience the mood of a different season.
