SITUATION
Linneraineach is on the Coigach peninsula in Wester Ross and lies between the coastal villages of Ullapool and Achiltibuie. The cottage is in a unique location with a backdrop of magnificent Stac Pollaidh and set within secluded grounds which extend to the shores of Loch Lurgainn and include a 10 acre island in the loch. The Coigach Peninsula is one of the most beautiful parts of the western Highlands and forms part of Scotland’s first European Geopark, an area recognised globally for its outstanding geological features, cultural heritage and forward thinking communities. The area has sandy beaches and is popular for kayaking, diving and sea fishing, while the spectacular mountain scenery is home to a wide variety of native wildlife and provides excellent hill walking and climbing.

Coigach is a thriving and active community well served by a range of facilities including a post office, 3 shops, primary school, community centre, church and petrol station. Ullapool, about 14 miles away, has a secondary school as well as further shops and amenities including a major supermarket, leisure centre and ferry terminal. Inverness, less than 2 hours’ drive away, has all the facilities of a modern city including its airport with regular flights to the South and Europe.

DESCRIPTION
Originally part of the Inverpolly Estate, Linneraineach has been owned by the same family since 1966 and is currently used as a second home. The cottage provides basic but comfortable accommodation and offers the potential, subject to the necessary consents, to be extended to include the footprint of the adjacent stone barn.
