Quirang is ideally located with local shops, chemist, hotels, gift shops, etc all within easy walking distance, as is a stony beach only 100 yards away. The main beach in Gairloch - Golf Course Beach is superb and is also within walking distance. There is another smaller beach nearer the cottage (just opposite Gairloch Hotel) which is good, but not a patch on the main one.
The cottage is spacious and bright, with a lovely garden to sit in when the weather is fine. Off road parking for two cars is also a benefit. The interior is fairly basic and dated, but more than adequate. The views from the front rooms are superb, helped by the telescope but slightly spoiled by some double glazing units needing replaced - the seals have gone resulting in condensation/marks. There is an open fire in the main room for use with coal and/or wood, as well as storage/convector heating and radiators (although we couldn't figure out how the radiators worked). The TV reception and picture quality was excellent, the wi-fi a bit variable. The beds were comfortable and the towels were new. The en-suite comprises a shower and wash hand basin, but no toilet. Only other down side was the terrible noise for almost three minutes after the toilet was flushed - the water pipes vibrate and could be heard throughout the cottage! We were advised that a plumber had been asked to fix the problem. Instructions for the washing machine would be helpful and a guestbook for comments, recommendations, etc would be worth having.
