Glorious Shore Croft "Amazing week in amazing Shore Croft !! Shore Croft never disappoints us. This wonderful home from home is so comfortable and well equipped. With views to die for across Loch Ewe. Our dog absolutely loves the huge and fully enclosed garden. We were blessed with fantastic weather for the whole week and were even visited by the Northern Lights !! Spent most afternoons sitting on the decking overlooking the loch reading and watching the amazing sunsets. If quiet and relaxation is your thing, Shore Croft is definately your place. Cannot recommend highly enough. We have visited several times before and have already rebooked. Simply glorious."

Our 5th visit to this outstanding property and it is still just as amazing as our first visit. The location is simply stunning with amazing views all around. Inside is wonderful and has been recently decorated to a very high standard. The views from the dining area and living room out across Loch Ewe are breathtaking. Even the kitchen looks out across the Loch so there's never even a lack of volunteers for washing and drying up whilst trying to spot the otters !!! Shore Croft is wonderfully equipped, has plenty of space and is so comfortable in every aspect. A real home from home. In fact it's so good we're already booking up our next visit.

We spent a week in Dec/jan at ShoreCroft and didn’t want to leave! Absolutely stunning location with views across the water and we spent hours just sitting watching the waves and the changing tides. ShoreCroft is such a beautiful house with absolutely everything you could possibly need for your stay. So comfortable and homely and more that adequately equipped we were totally blown away with the luxury down to the complementary toiletries too! The house is spotlessly clean and has such a wonderful feel about it. We didn’t venture far, we just enjoyed sitting by the open fire and relaxing!

Just perfect in every way This was our seventh visit to Shore Croft and every time we return we are always taken aback by the sheer beauty of the surrounding area and the luxurious house. The updated decor and artwork that have been added since our last visit are absolutely stunning. It is hard to imagine a more beautiful property in such a fabulous area with wonderful views and direct access onto the beach! I cannot recommend Shore Croft highly enough.

Fabulous again This is the second time we've visited Shorecroft and it's still as amazing. A beautifully luxurious property in a wonderful location. Everything you need is provided and the decor and furnishings are top quality. The land around the property is lovely and secure for the dogs and they loved the access to the beach directly from the garden. It's rare to find such a lovely dog friendly holiday home, we've already rebooked for next year.

We had a wonderful week at Shore Croft. The house was lovely, beautifully furnished and everything we could possibly need was provided, all to a very high standard. The big garden was just amazing and our two dogs could run around to their hearts' content, with us knowing they were safely contained. Recommend the local Aultbea stores for shopping, especially the fresh scallops on Thursday! Lots of lovely local walks too.

Second visit to this wonderful cottage in the highlands… My husband and I have just returned from Shore Croft for a second time. The facilities remain excellent and the location is absolutely perfect for sightseeing and exploring. We can’t recommend highly enough. We will certainly stay here again when we next return.

We had a very enjoyable time here. The house is enviably placed looking out over the loch, and very well equipped and fitted out. There are also some good walks nearby. I would recommend it without hesitation to those looking for a high quality stay.

What a fantastic place to stay. House is beautifully furnished with great views and lots of wildlife to see around Loch Ewe. An experience not to be missed.
