Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We would highly recommend this apartment. It is very well appointed and very comfortable with all our needs met. The apartment was very clean and neat. The views from all the windows were spectacular, not to mention the glorious night skies. Very quiet area allowing for complete relaxation.

“Excellent Accommodation”
Reviewed 29 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Taighali provided a well designed, spacious and warm refuge to return to at the end of the day. In addition to all the facilities that could possibly be needed, the views in all directions from the windows are stupendous, living landscapes. Good wi-fi connection too. Our stay was further enhanced by the friendliness and helpfulness of the owner, Alexander.

What an amazing apartment. We were impressed with the light spacious feel of this open plan kitchen and living area. The windows framed the spectacular views perfectly. The apartment was very clean and well maintained although a couple of splash backs behind the cooker and kitchen sink would save on having to regularly decorate.The owner Alexander could not have been more helpful or accommodating he was great. Only a short walk away was a lovely beach great for early morning or evening strolls. The Aroma Cafe is a short distance away and well worth a vist. We had a fantastic week creating memories. Great value for money.

We really enjoyed our time here. The flat is right beside a beach, is good for walks with your dog, and the views from the living room are breath taking. The accommodation is good in size, great kitchen for preparing meals, and the corner couch provides an excellent place to relax after your days out. Alexander could not be more helpful, there are good local activities to do and Ullapool is 40 miles away for food shopping, and there is a butchers and shop in the village.

“Comfort with a 360º View”

The apartment was simply but well furnished and equipped, having just been re-furbished a year ago. There is a nice modern shower room but no bath. The kitchen is adequate and the owner makes his washing machine and dryer readily available but it was lovely to see clothes fluttering on the outside airer in the clean breeze. It was very cosy with central heating that warmed it on a cool evening in just a few minutes. The views were mostly from Velux-style windows but as you moved about, you could see the sea on all sides. The access road is a bit bumpy. We loved Aultbea, a tiny village with no great sights, but a friendly community with an excellent general store, hotel and a wonderful local (Isle of Ewe) smoke house. Motoring was relatively easy because, although the roads are narrow, there are ample passing places and people use them considerately. We loved Wester Ross! Thank you for a great holiday.

Liked best: The views and the cosiness.
Liked least: Lack of tiling in kitchen and bathroom which made the new decorations vulnerable to splashes. Also bumpy access road.

Taighali apartment is spacious, comfortable and well equiped. Its position overlooking beautiful and historic Loch Ewe is absolutely stunning and rewards visitors with frequent wildlife sightings such as the pair of otters, white-tailed sea eagles and black-throated divers that we have enjoyed watching from the sitting room window. Aultbea is ideally situated for exploring the coast and mountains of Wester Ross and Inverewe Gardens are just down the road at Poolewe. There are plenty of local shops and, if you require anything not stocked locally, there is a good Tesco in Ullapool. The area is well provided with pubs and restaurants, our recommendation being the Badachro Inn near Gairloch.
