“Many thanks to Gordon and Iona for their meticulous attention to detail. Every aspect of our stay was perfect. We have been absolutely captivated by the vista from the property with constantly changing light and interest. The wildlife has been amazing too. Regular visits from red deer and fawns, pine marten, red squirrels, seals in the bay, oyster catchers, divers, herons, cormorant and even a skua (to name just a few). The penultimate evening gave a fabulous parhelion before sunset. The area is full of opportunities for diverse landscape experiences, our top 2 were Being Alligin gorge, waterfall and valley walk with a close encounter to a golden eagle and Coral Beach south of Applecross with a gentle walk down to white sands at low tide. Red point is well worth a visit. We had a fabulous meal at Gille Brighde Restaurant. “

“Thank you so much for the wonderful week we’ve enjoyed at Tigh Beag. It is the best self catering accommodation we have ever had: the high quality of everything in the house, the beautiful location, your clear and helpful information. We had a very special day driving over Bealach Na Ba to Applecross and on round the coast back here. So many photos!”
Liz and Malcolm, Oxfordshire, June 2019
“ Over the last 3 years we have been privileged to stay at both the Drysdale properties. Like The Net Store, Tigh Beag just works - everything tip top and in such an idyllic position. Iona and Gordon are the consummate hosts - there when needed but inconspicuous the rest of the time. Wonderful wildlife, amazing scenery and fabulous local food. A great part of Scotland.”
Andy and June, May 2019
“It’s a testament to the owners that we can arrive here and feel instantly at home. So comfortable, warm and beautiful. And those views….Having been to the area a few times before, it was actually quite hard to leave the house with those views.! Thank you for sharing this special place with us.”
Jill and Duncan, Somerset, April 2019
“Tigh Beag is a delightful, warm and comfortable luxury hide to watch the local wildlife, otters, deer and se eagles going about their daily lives completely unaware of your presence. Beyond this hideaway you have the added bonus of the grandeur of the high tops at this time of year dusted with snow.”
Clive and Alison, February 2019
“We came here to celebrate our 60th Birthday with our sons and friend and could not have found a finer place in which to do so. This is surely the most elegant and well appointed accommodation we have stayed in in fifty years of coming to Torridon.”
Marian, Rob, Alasdair, Hugh and Andreas, Edinburgh, January 2019
“We have had a really relaxing stay in this warm, cosy and beautifully appointed home; thank you. Bealach cafe was a very good recommendation and we enjoyed visits to Ullapool and Torridon and just doing local visits and trips. The Applecross circular tour deserves its reputation as one of the most stunning drives in the uk. However, the best thing surely has to be the views from the house; otters, deer, sea eagles as well as stunning sunrises and sunsets.”
Gael and Michael, Hertfordshire, November 2018
“Despite poor weather for most of the week, the autumn colours and scenery have been fantastic, and the comfort and warmth of Tigh Beag second to none. We have loved looking out over the bay and it has been amazing watching a magnificent stag with his hinds each day from the windows. We can recommend the walk to Coral Beach about 3 miles beyond Applecross and excellent fish and chips from the silver caravan outside the Applecross Inn. Greatfood too, at the Kishorn Seafood Snack Bar. A truly memorable holiday.”
Nigel and Patricia, Berwickshire, October 2018
“What a beautiful place to stay and made our honeymoon special. The view is like a picture post card and we could watch it all day. We have seen otters, deer, sea eagles, herons and a buzzard all from the cottage. The cottage has everything you need and more. We both enjoyed our stay here at Tigh Beag and I’m sure we will be back.”
John and Dean, Sheffield, September 2018
"Thank you for a wonderfully relaxing week in the most beautiful location. Stunning views, especially in the sunshine. Best activities include Gordon's RIB trip to Gille Brighde for lunch on Sunday, walk around Shieldaig peninsula, breakfast a Nanny's Cafe and dinner at the Coastal Kitchen. Great to wake up to the sight of the resident deer just outside our window."
Karen, John and Katrina, Solihull and Nottingham, July/August 2018
"What a wonderful serene week! Tigh Beag was the perfect retreat. We saw deer, a pine marten and many kinds of jellyfish as well as soaking up the west coast atmosphere. The house was brilliantly equipped and comfortable and we hope to come again. If you could just arrange similar scorching weather next time, that would be ideal."
Francis, Celia, Grace, Freya and Oscar, July 2018
" We have just spent a few days here in Tigh Beag - it has been a magical time with wonderful sunsets and walks and an amazing trip with Torridon RIB tours where we saw seals, Arctic terns, a sea eagle and herons. The house is the last word in comfort, warmth and good taste. In a word 'paradise'."
M and M Semple, Glasgow, June 2108
" Thank you for a delightful stay at Tigh Beag. We greatly enjoyed ourselves. The house was very well appointed, just as we imagined it from the description; the view even more spectacular. We hope to return next year. "
Peter and Chris, June 2018
" We just loved our stay at Tigh Beag. A real retreat on the west coast. It is so wonderfully warm and well-equipped. You have thought of everything. We will be dreaming of the sea views until our next visit."
Ros Hyde, Dublin, April 2018
" We enjoyed our stay in Tigh Beag immensely - luxurious accommodation in a beautiful location, where flora and fauna abound. There is every comfort, from the carefully chosen furnishings and the beautiful linen to the log burning stove. Glorious views of the sea and the mountains from the lounge and the bedrooms. You'll feel relaxed, whatever the weather. All in all, stupendous and secluded Highland splendour!"
Sally and David, Edinburgh, August 2017
" We saw lots of lovely wildlife, including an otter, seals, herons, deer and the sea eagle. The house is very nice and the views are stunning."
