Facilities at Fishing Station Cottage

The property has a large double bedroom and a twin room, though if you have 6 in your party we have a Sleeping Loft with twin beds at a mezzanine level above the sitting  room in the newly built extension.  The sleeping loft is accessed via a ladder and gate (please see the photos in our Gallery) and is not suitable for the very young or elderly.  There is a refurbished bathroom upstairs, separate shower and toilet downstairs, sitting room featuring a log burner and the most amazing views over the bay, a lounge with open fire. The large open plan eating kitchen has a gas hob, electric oven, and an oil fuelled Raeburn stove which also runs the central heating.


Photos of the house, internally and externally are in our gallery to assist you in deciding whether Fishing Station Cottage is for you.


Outside there is ample parking for cars (and boats or trailers if required) a log shed with free logs to burn on the woodburner, BBQ, and plenty of open space for lazing about on those summer days.


The property has a washing machine, dishwasher, tumble dryer and outside washing line.  We provide sheets, towels, dishtowels, and a supply of basic cooking foodstuffs, soaps, logs, coal, kindling and oil.  Dogs are allowed in the property on payment of a weekly cleaning charge of £15, downstairs only, not on furniture and not in the sitting room please. 


Local amenities include Laide Post Office 1mile away selling petrol, newspapers and food.  There is a bigger shop in Aultbea 4 miles away and the local tourist shops are located in Gairloch about 12m away.  There are coffee shops, specialist food shops, and garages nearby.  It is understood that Tesco deliver locally though we prefer to support local businesses.  The nearest large supermarkets are Inverness, Dingwall and Ullapool.


There is free wifi.  The property also receives reasonable mobile phone signal.


We have a swinging mooring about 30m from the tidal jetty upon which we moor our 7.5m Rib boat when we stay at Laide.  The mooring is available for use at an additional charge but on the strict understanding that guests satisfy themselves as to the suitability of this for their boat, and that we assume no liability for any failures whatsoever.
