Profile Description

The Brochs of Coigach are as much works of art as they are the most luxurious holiday lets you can think of. These unique buildings near the village of Achiltibuie are embedded entirely in dry stone walls, timeless in appearance but contemporary inside. They are situated within four acres of their own ground at the end of a private farm track.

Scàl’s Broch is a one bedroom hide-away with an open plan kitchen and dining area plus a very large sitting and observation room which is 8 metres long and 6 metres wide. The Broch also contains a grand bathroom and sauna. It is luxuriously but homely equipped throughout with some very unusual pieces of funiture as well as with exquisite works of art.

Gille Buidhe’s Broch contains two bedrooms and two sitting rooms. The main room is 11 metres long and 10 metres wide. Everything is on a larger scale than in the smaller Broch. Gille Buidhe’s Broch is suitable for couples, for two couples or for families. It is available from two days up to any period you wish.
