I stayed here for New Year 09/10. It's located about 2 mile from Gairloch in a tiny settlement called North Erradale. Very nice and nice owners.

Just realised, might not be big enough for a family.

Could not recommend more highly, stayed two consecutive years here in May. Loveley beaches and waling area, superb view of the mountains from the garden. Proper fire, loads of space. (Take a tent and throw the kids out by the big stone - check it out on Google street view here: http://goo.gl/maps/j6xjy

This is on the beachfront if you want something more sterile looking:

Can't say if it's any good or not, however. Some good rock formations around this part of the beach - rock pools and a bit of a pool for swimming, piles of stone to build and take pretty pictures of.

A shameless plug for our friends' lovely B and B:

Avoid this spot like the plague: Owners are 'grade A buffoons'

But there is a nice walk/drive to the lighthouse with some seaside scrambling if you fancy your chances as well.

There is a seastack around there too, can't remember where though.

Glenelg is also a nice little village, the pub does good scampi.

Advice: wear 'Skin So Soft' to keep the midges at bay.

Glenelg is quite far away from Gairloch. 2 1/2 hour drive.

The Old Inn and Badachro Inn are best pubs in the area. Both do good food. Old Inn is better pub. Badachro is in a stunning location.

Have stayed here a couple of times: http://www.cottages-and-castles.co.uk/properties/Highlands-And-Islands/Ross-And-Cromarty/Gairloch-Ul...

Very nice house and 5 mins walk from the Badachro Inn.
