Area Insights

Tigh Beannaichte sits on the Ard Dhubh Peninsula of the Applecross Estate. The property is a truly exceptional family home, set within a private secluded location enjoying stunning sea views. Ard Dhubh is a pretty hamlet situated 4 miles south of The Street in Applecross, and just off the NC500, and is one of 10 or so crofting townships on the Applecross Peninsula. This tranquil and peaceful location offers one of the most incredible views in the UK, overlooking the Isle of Skye and the dramatic Cuillin Mountains, Raasay and the Inner Sound. Its coastal position means Ard Dhubh and the property enjoys spectacular sunsets all year round, and with little light pollution it is a wonderful spot to see the Aurora Borealis (The Northern Lights). The Applecross Peninsula, accessed via the famous Bealach Na Ba mountain pass or coastal road from Shieldaig, is famed for its abundance of wildlife and birdlife and stunning beaches. A particular favourite is Coral Beach, which is only a short walk from Tigh Beannaichte; a remote white sandy beach with breath taking views, it is an ideal place for swimming and picnics. Applecross offers 2 well established restaurants; the lovely Walled Garden Restaurant and the popular and well-known Applecross Inn, famed for its fresh seafood, waterfront beer garden and the Applecross Inn-side out Airstream. A little further afield there are many other renowned places to eat including The Torridon Hotel, which has been recognised for its fine dining. Applecross has a buzzing community life and boasts a local store for a post office and supplies, a highly respected community company, community owned filling station, excellent community broadband, a resident local doctor, a helipad for emergencies, community allotments, a gym, historical society and 3 churches.  The vibrant community hall hosts a range of regular events such as yoga, school activities, community council meetings, lunch club, strupags and ceilidhs. Also available to the community are Tesco’s deliveries, 2 weekly fish vans and a weekly grocer/butcher van. Applecross has a highly regarded preschool and flourishing primary school with children having access to a forest school and a Gaelic medium facility. High school is available in nearby Plockton with weekly transport provided.
