The self catering Birdhouse bothy in Applecross, Scottish Highlands offers intimate, luxury accommodation overlooking the Cuillin Mountains of Skye…









Self-Catering In Applecross

We warmly welcome you to The Birdhouse, a beautiful self-catering hideaway in Applecross, close to the famous North Coast 500 route through the Scottish highlands.  A peaceful, intimate cottage that is perfect for up to two people looking for a magical getaway.  Shrug off the stresses of everyday life, leaving the body to rest and the mind to unwind....

The Birdhouse is perched at the top of the garden behind Shell Cottage in the quiet hamlet of Culduie in Applecross. Culduie is perhaps most famous for the setting of the Man Booker Prize short-listed book ‘His Bloody Project’ written by Graeme MacRae Burnet.

Originally an old cow byre, The Birdhouse was lovingly restored and refurbished in 2019 to an exceptional standard, with king size bed, beautiful shower room, wood burning stove and an abundance of unique creative charm.  This wonderful bothy is brimming with creativity and craftsmanship. Enjoying west-facing views over the Cuillin Mountains of Skye and the Inner Sound coastline, The Birdhouse is light and airy with a special feel. The natural wood and stone, the warming stove and the overarching canopy of rowan branches over the head of the bed create a cosy, fairytale nest at any time of year.
