Built in 1912 by David A Stevenson, Rua Reidh Lighthouse, near Gairloch, stands at the entrance to Loch Ewe, at one of the most dramatic and remote locations on the north-west coast of Scotland, with breath-taking views across the Minch to the Isle of Skye, the Shiant Isles and the Outer Hebrides.

The guest accommodation at our unique home will appeal to lovers of nature and wild places who wish to spend a few days relaxing and appreciating the remoteness, the peace and tranquillity, the walking opportunities and the abundant wildlife of this stunning location.




With no mobile phone signal, limited internet access, an erratic television picture, and the nearest shop a good half-hour drive away, you have a unique opportunity to leave the trappings of the busy modern world behind and join us in our comfortable accommodation at our truly get-away-from-it-all location at the 'edge of the world’. You might even be lucky enough to see the Northern Lights in our dark skies.


The wildlife around the lighthouse is phenomenal, with whales, dolphins, basking sharks, otters, seals, sea eagles and thousands of seabirds all regularly seen.

There are blissful walking opportunities from the lighthouse along spectacular cliffs and deserted beaches.



We look forward to welcoming you to this very special place.

Tracy & Roger McLachlan
