Coille Bheag in summer

Coille Bheag is a six-acre family croft with two properties for rent, situated on the shores of Loch Ewe in the western Highlands of Scotland. It's part of the crofting village of Inverasdale, near Poolewe and Gairloch in the Wester Ross region.

Ideally placed for walking, fishing, cycling, boating, watching wildlife or just relaxing, it has spectacular views of the mountains of Wester Ross, including the Great Wilderness and Torridon ranges. Because there's no street lighting for miles, we also enjoy unrivalled dark skies without fear of light pollution and on clear nights you have an incredible view of the Milky Way - if you're lucky you might even see the aurora borealis (Northern Lights)!

Both are completely self-contained detached cottages offering total privacy, and the croft itself offers plenty of off-road car parking and space to wander..
