We don’t want to leave!
We are coming to end of our 4 week stay at Leac a Ghradain. It is beautiful here.
Driving in, the house at the top of the hill. A backdrop of complete privacy provided by native trees and shrubs, protecting gardens and a truly amazing and unbroken view of the Loch and the mountains beyond. Gardens with flowers, fresh strawberries and mint tea every day for breakfast, and fresh herbs abound.
Well equipped kitchen with everything we need. Clean, clean, clean.
I will remember the view as I wake up every morning until we return.

Wow! Leac a Ghradain was absolutely perfect in so many ways. The main reason being the awesome vista in such a peaceful and tranquil setting, whether admiring from many of the rooms in the house, or from the very well thought out outdoor seating areas. From sunrise to sunset, the mountains just appeared to come alive when the sun bounced off them, but even in the dreich weather the vista was still awesome. An absolutely stunning setting to escape the city hustle and bustle.
The house itself was also perfect. I found the place to be very spacious, as well as being very comfortable and very well equipped. Outside had plenty of car parking space, with even an open shed and outside tap if required. The wildlife garden also being a gem and worth exploring each corner. All within a very short drive to Torridon to explore the area.
Also have to compliment Teresa, for being such a fantastic friendly and helpful host, going out of her way to ensure I had a comfortable and memorable stay. I will definitely be returning to this place.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in this beautiful, spacious bungalow. Everything was provided to ensure our stay was ‘home from home’. The setting is superb with breathtaking panoramic views of Loch Torridon and the surrounding hills. A view which will be hard to beat and will stay long in our memories.
The delightful, extensive garden has a wide variety of plants, trees, fruit bushes and herbs together with a number of water features - we loved exploring the different areas and spending time just sitting, admiring the views. Lots of wildlife spotting too - we were lucky enough to see a pair of sea otters nearby. We also caught sight of a peregrine falcon in the garden and a red deer dashed across our path on a nearby walk. All this plus a blackbird rearing its young in the back porch!
Thank you Teresa for all of your help in making this such a special place to stay. We hope to return again soon.

Our first guest arrived in April with no booking, took up residence in the rear porch, and liked the house so much that she decided to stay. She is now a proud Mum. Over the course of just one week in May the featherless young blackbird chicks suddenly transformed into hungry, demanding fledglings. Many thanks to one of our guests for very kindly sending some photos of the young family.
