About This Listing
Bright and airy bedroom with private luxury bathroom in a modern house designed to maximise the stunning view of the sea and the surrounding mountains. An extensive breakfast selection, including home made and local produce.
A unique contemporary property with outstanding views. The house is situated in a tiny village with good transport links.
Stromeferry is an ideal base for exploring both the Isle of Skye and this part of the Scottish Highlands.
The seashore is a few minutes walk away. Woodland walks nearby and lots of wildlife on the doorstep. We are regularly seeing a seal popping up and down in the water, also dolphins infrequently visit the loch and their movement is clearly visible from the house. There are boat trips in the area and we will happily recommend something to suit your plans.
Breakfast offers a chance to try some cheese from our local dairy, the freshest of eggs from our own three hens, home-made bread and jams as well as a selection of fruits and cereal.
Bedroom, private bathroom, outside seating and gardens. Breakfast is served in our dining kitchen.
Interaction with Guests
We enjoy welcoming guests into our home - we are happy to answer any questions and give advice to make the most of your holiday.
Stromeferry is all about the view.
Early mornings during the spring and summer months are truly stunning.
The train station is located a couple of minutes walk from the house and there is a good service. However, a car is probably the best way to see the Highlands and Islands.
Other Things to Note
Late arrivals are not a problem.
We currently have no facilities for babies and young children - the guest accommodation is more suitable for adults.
If your dog is happy to sleep in your car, you are welcome to take him to enjoy the garden and surroundings. It is possible to park directly outside the guest room.
If you are able to provide a rough estimated time of arrival, that is much appreciated.
Our stay at the White House was absolutely perfect. The house itself was immaculate and beautiful, the view was stunning, and our room was beyond comfortable. Breakfast was delicious with local cheeses, warm pastries and eggs from the chickens out back. Kathleen and Julian were amazing hosts, giving us the perfect recommendation for an evening drive and dinner to applecross (we highly recommend it!) and went to great lengths making sure our stay was perfect. We left so relaxed and hope to be back soon!
Thanks again for everything!

We had a wonderful stay with Kathleen and her husband. The house is really beautiful, it certainly is all white and very tastefully done and the photos of the views are spot on. They were really organised and had menus from local restaurants that they like for us to choose somewhere to book from (Stromeferry itself is a tiny village and doesn't have any shops or places to eat) and Kathleen called the restaurant for us which was excellent.
We were very happy we had a car, there is a train station but you would at least need bikes to get to other local villages to be able to have dinner etc.
The bed was really comfortable and we slept well (they have just installed a skylight blind do it was nice and dark). The bath was great too.
Breakfast the next morning may have been the highlight of the whole experience, better than most buffets we have had even in 5 star hotels (perfectly scrambled eggs from their hens, local cheeses, bread and pastries, if you could fit in the cereal and fruit and yogurt it was also all there we just ran out of room).
The white house was our splurge while we were in the highlands as we are traveling on a bit of a budget and it was totally worth it. Good value for something so beautiful.
Amazing and tasteful house! Fabulous room and bathroom! The location was superb with dramatic scenery! Kathleen and Julian were the perfect host, absolutely gracious and had fantastic knowledge of the surroundings! Fabulous breakfast to top it all! We hope to come back soon and definitely recommend staying with such a lovely couple!
Nous avons passé 2 magnifiques nuits chez Kathleen et Julian. Ce sont des hôtes charmants et très attentionnés. La maison avec sa vue sur le Loch est splendide. La chambre et la salle de bain sont modernes et très confortables. La maison est très bien située, à +/- 15 minutes de l'île de Skye. Encore merci à eux pour leur accueil chaleureux! Nous recommanderons cet endroit sans hésiter!
Kathleen and Julian were absolutely fantastic. Their home was pristine with a lovely view right from the window. If they recommend that you go somewhere to eat, I suggest you follow their advice as they know the best places around! We were very happy with our stay and would absolutely recommend it. I doubt there is a better place to stay in the area.
Absolutely perfect place to stay! The space was clean and modern and in an amazing location. The view was stunning and we were very comfortable the whole stay.
