“Great Family Holiday House !”
Reviewed 18 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This is a well sited house just above Gairloch Harbour in Charlestown. It's a very short walk to local shops and the pub . The accomodation was very spacious for our group of 8 and a dog and was well maintained and comfortable. There are lots of walks of all kinds locally to suit everyone. Plenty of places to visit locally e.g. Redpoint, Melvaig and on a really good day we'd recommend Mellon Udrigle beach with its wonderful white sand and clear water.

Good butchers in Strath about a mile away. Gairloch Leisure Centre is well equipped and is worth trying when it's a bit rainy. The golf course is also well worth a go - very well maintained with some great views. Clubs can be hired but check first as they only do Weds and Thurs.

Overall a great place for a relaxing family holiday .

“Super house, great location, plenty activities to entertain.”
Reviewed 24 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Great setting from where to enjoy the surrounding area, there is something to do for everyone of all ages. We just did a lot of walking, eating and relaxing enjoying our environment.
The house has plenty of room we only had for in our party, but plenty room for the 8 it can sleep.
The only disappointment we had was that on our final day we booked to go whale watching but the wind blew and the trip was cancelled, so be prepared to change the activities you had planned.

“A fine property in an excellent location”
Reviewed 30 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Birchwood. The house is spacious, well-equipped, comfortable and has nice features, such as the outdoor deck and the sitting area in a lush garden. View over the harbour is very pretty indeed. Shops just down the road in the village and a pub-restaurant five minutes walk away. An excellent centre for mountain walking (what we were doing) and for coastal hikes. Perfect!

“Lovely, large house”
Reviewed 13 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

I stayed at Birchwood for a week, using it as a base to explore Wester Ross. It's a well equipped, large house overlooking the harbour at Charlestown. The is plenty of space for a large group/family (inc a pet). I would happily stay at Birchwood again, and it's a great location to explore the area.

“Lovely Spacious Family Home”
Reviewed 26 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

House much more spacious than we had anticipated. Well kept, clean and modern (4 x en-suites, dishwasher, microwave, washer, dryer, 2 large tvs in separate sitting rooms, dvd player and wi-fi). Owner next door and on-hand with small plumbing issue and local info, but that aside were left to ourselves. Excellent situation over looking Gairloch harbour and the small beach.

“Fab location, house is spacious yet cosy”
Reviewed 26 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We arrived after a breathtaking drive up from Edinburgh via Inverness. Impressed by the space plus we all loved our own ensuites. Alison provided a warm welcome and also some tips on activities.
Beds v.comfy
Beautiful views from front bedrooms and the upper decking
Would recommend:
Pony Trekking at Red Point, another beautiful spot and our girls rode down to the beach, plus the welfare of the ponies was of a high standard.
Canoeing with Conor at Ewe Canoe
Gairloch beach - walk over the hill so need to go via road
Mellon uldrigle - seriously wow beach
Bein Eighe mountain - well marked paths
Walk from house up to Flowerdale falls
Chippy in gairloch
Dining experience was sadly mediocre in the neighbouring Old Inn, and the Badachro Inn

“Everything we needed for a great holiday”
Reviewed 12 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Big rambling house ideal for family reunion holiday. Beautiful coastal location next to pub and shops with fantastic varied natural landscapes close at hand. A good place too to get away to straight after the Referendum catastrophe.
