The Brochs of Coigach are a byword for a true accord of luxury and environmentalism. They sit in a secluded four-acre croft above the rugged shoreline of Northwest Scotland. Sheep are grazing in front, frequently joined by wild deer. Wildlife is abundant, a sea eagle may circle overhead or dolphins may churn up the seas.
What makes a stay at The Brochs of Coigach unique?
The Brochs are almost invisible in the surrounding landscape. Embedded in dry stone walls and covered with turf roofs that flow over them out of a hillside, they were designed to evoke the ruined remnants of the mysterious buildings that Iron Age inhabitants of Northwest Scotland built along the coastline. Inside, however, they offer not just a luxurious accommodation graded 5-star by VisitScotland, but also highly original architecture and contemporary design. Huge panoramic windows open unparalleled views down to the sea, over islands and towards a breathtaking mountain scenery. The walls inside are adorned with paintings by some of the finest modern Scottish and Northern European artists. The furniture is a mixture of eclectic and antique.
What is the capacity for The Brochs of Coigach?
There are two Brochs. The smaller one, though quite big in itself, is designed for one couple. The larger one has two bedrooms. For families, a veranda room can be converted into an additional single bedroom.
