The main township of Shore Street, at the heart of the Applecross peninsula (A'Chomraich in Gaelic, meaning sanctuary) is located around a picturesque bay and enjoys uninterrupted views out over the island of Raasay and the Cuillin Hills of Skye. Applecross is reached by one of the highest routes in the UK, the Bealach na Bà; from the top, on a good day, you can see the islands of the Outer Hebrides.
With the sheltered waters of the Sound and spectacular mountains right on the doorstep, Hartfield House is an ideal place to base yourself for walking and trekking, cycling, mountain biking, kayaking and climbing.
Hartfield House is approximately 3/4 of a mile off the main road, which skirts the bay and stands at the foot of the glen following the line of the Applecross river.
Originally the old hunting lodge on the Applecross Estate, it is a large old building set in its own grounds and sleeps 50 in a mix of twin, triple, dorm and private bedrooms.
There are ample hot showers, restful common areas, a dining hall, laundry, kit store, free wi-fi, small shop, large garden and a function hall. Shops and restaurants are a 20 minute walk or five minutes in the car.
For cyclists, mountain bikers, (motor) bikers and car enthusiasts, we have a workshop with a full range of tools and covered areas for fixing and tinkering! And there is a sheltered bike space, drying rooms and plentiful outdoor space. Prices start from £20pppn.
