2 Bedroom Cottage – Detached – Offers Over £180000 GBP
Located in the picturesque, coastal village of Inverasdale on the north west coast of Scotland, is a 2 bedroom detached cottage, offered ‘For Sale’ with Myfanwy Ann Rowe of AMAZING RESULTS!™ Estate Agents. This former traditional stone fisherman’s home is in an idyllic situation for those looking for an “escape” from the the hustle and bustle. It sits on the shore and enjoys delightfully uninterrupted, panoramic views over the sea to Isle Ewe, Aultbea and Mellon Charles peninsula, and the surrounding mountain ranges.
“Firebeag” was enjoyed as a holiday home for many years before the current owners purchased the property. The property has been completely stripped back to the bare stone walls and is in need of complete renovation, thereby giving potential purchasers the advantage of a “blank canvas” for imaginative renovation and offers tremendous scope in this respect.
The cottage would suit a variety of potential purchasers including families or builders / investors, and viewing is highly recommended.
- Panoramic sea and mountain views
This traditional, south-east facing cottage couldn’t be in a more secluded, peaceful location! It sits, out of sight, just off the coastline road of the Peninsula, North of the village of Poolewe; the perfect “get away from it all”. It enjoys truly magnificent views across the sea loch to the Torridon ranges, Beinn Eighe around to An Teallach and the Fisherfields. It’s sheltered position offers excellent sailing conditions, with the cottage benefitting from direct access to the sea loch for keen sailing or fishing enthusiasts.
Since being purchased in 2021 the cottage has been completely stripped back to the original stone walls, thereby offering potential purchasers the opportunity of transforming and personalising the cottage into their own cosy home. The cottage benefits from uPVC double glazed windows, and the dining kitchen and entrance are laid with attractive floor tiles. A new immersion heater/tank and new PVC guttering / downpipes were fitted pre 2021, and the property has been connected to mains water. It is understood that there is a BT line to the property. There is the additional benefit of the original stone byre, attached to the cottage, which is partially covered for storage space and has the potential for planning permission for development. Immediately outside the cottage is a gravelled patio area.
Viewing is recommended by contacting Myfanwy Rowe on 01445 – 731 533 / 07741 – 483 420.
This rural community is situated on the shores of Loch Ewe in the magnificent scenery of Wester Ross. The former village school, which has been converted into a community centre with exhibition rooms, also has a welcoming tea room with delicious home baking by local villagers.
Inverasdale and the surrounding area is an ideal location for hill walking, golf, cycling, fishing, bird-watching or just relaxing.

There are well stocked trout lochs on the surrounding hills, and wonderful rocky and sandy bays for sea fishing. Fishing permits are for sale in the local shops.
Just a short drive to the tip of the peninsula stands evidence of the second world war activities – lookout points, gun implacements and concrete installations still stand as a reminder of the importance this sea loch played in the defence of the North Atlantic. Across the sea loch to the Aultbea peninsula, matching structures command a similar vantage point, which gave complete protection of the inner Loch Ewe.
The nearby village of Poolewe benefits from a Post Office/general store, a coffee shop, a hotel, church, village hall, indoor swimming pool, nursery and primary schooling; all of which are only a short distance away. The world famous Inverewe Gardens, where you can enjoy a wander, are also in Poolewe.
