Having driven to Applecross first via Bealach na Ba it was great to see Spindrift on the horizon. I'm pleased there are two roads that lead to Spindrift (we left via the road to Shieldaig!) however, I'm pleased we experienced Bealach na Ba and that it was my husband driving!
Spindrift lived up to our expectations of being a remote hideaway. The studio type apartment that Sue and Andy have is just perfect. It is a light and airy room with a big window looking out across the sea to the islands. Its easy to just relax and sit and stare out of the window at the view. Its very peaceful and we had no mobile phone signal so it felt like you could literally close off to the rest of the world.
The studio is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. In addition to the comfy bed there's the sofa or little table and chairs to relax at. Each having its own view out to sea.
The bathroom is very modern with a big shower unit and all the essentials. With the addition of the little kitchen with the fridge, microwave, kettle, toaster, crockery and utensils you can either stay in or go out for food in nearby Applecross. We only stayed for one night and during the day we'd had a late lunch at the Walled Garden restaurant in Applecross. We then purchased some of the frozen lamb stew they had for sale in their deli and bought additional goodies at the shop in Applecross. All microwaveable! A perfect and yummy meal in the comfort of the studio later on.
Breakfast served by Sue the next day was very tasty and enjoyable sat at the little table. We pre-ordered the night before and requested a time that suited. All served on time.
Sue was a great host and gave us all the information but generally left us to it. Although the studio is part of the main house the fact it had its own door means you can come and go as you please.
A great little hideaway. Definitely recommend.
